Thanks for all the info. I was planning on getting my eyelashes done before we travel. My friend went to a wedding in Mexico in September and had her's done before she went and they stayed on fine and looked great. I think it will be one less worry if i have them done before the day. But thanks for the word of warning....

 

I am so excited about it all i wish i was going NOW! Lol, coming from the UK we are not going to be able to do a site visit. I would love to but it just wont be possible :o(

 

I'm sure it will all be fine and we will have the wedding of our dreams like alot of you did x

Yeah, I saw that they can glue individual lashes on each lash now. It looks so nice and real. I am so tempted to try, but I am not sure how it will turn out. I have very short and downward lashes. I don't wanna come to work looking all weird too, I guess i will try them while I am on vacation or holiday.

I'm glad to hear about everyone's experience with makeup and hair. I'm getting married there on the 20th of the month. Yikes, it's coming up!

 

I have been in communication with them via email, but our emails seem to have a 2-5 day lag. I haven't thought that it was a problem at all, but I think I may be a little more lax than most brides. The whole reason why I wanted a destination wedding was so that I didn't have to stress! LOL. Also, part of the lag in communication time is my fault b/c I have taken more than a couple of days to respond back to her.

 

I think someone asked me before about having 30plus people at the Brazilian restaurant for our welcome dinner. Gabriela did not indicate that it was a problem, so I'm just sticking to that. However, I will print out all of my emails with her and take them down with me...just in case :)

I am only really stressing about the date. It's a little unclear but once that's sorted i will be fine. There is nothing more i'm really needing to know at this point i absolutely love the hotel and i'm sure it will all work out fine. The most important thing is we are getting married right? I'm sooooooooooo excited...

 

Yesther - wow less than a month. woo hoo!! Can't wait to hear your review. Good luck!

wow, they should have done this long time ago (instead of having us waiting in front of our laptop and talking to walls). By now, I am more toward the Royal Playa Del Carmen, the location is better than the Barcelo, and no kids. Meanwhile, people with kids/monsters and people with budget constraints can still stay at the Gran Porto Real and come over to the Royal on the wedding day. Of course, I can go there to visit them any time too.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
