Also Is anyone doing a mid reception entertainment , My FI is Italian and most weddings here have Italian dancers or some form of entertainment is expected . I had already planned on getting the mariatchi band to play as we left the church , but spanish dancers would be intresting for the reception

Thanks for any input

It is probably good to not go with with violin since I have read it can be hard to hear depending on the waves and number of people.  We are going with the sax, we will see what happens.  My WC was nice enough to send me a list of a few songs that the person already knows that we can choose from.  Had to go to you tube to hear some of them, but there were a lot of great choices.  Oddly enough, lots of Beatles.  Congrats!

I have planned most of the wedding (just finished the flowers) and am currently looking for an outside photographer and videography. I love all the recommendations on here so thanks!

 

As for the resort, we have been there 2 times before and love it. We are really excited...the only hick up right now...for those planning weddings...tell guests to book rooms asap! We are 2 and a half months away and there are no rooms avaliable at the palace....

 

for OTT bags... we are really wanting to do this...but I was wondering what type of things past brides have put in them???

 

:D

Tell your guests to keep checking... we had some guests book at the Tropical because the Palace was full and a few weeks later the Palace was available and then the Tropical was full so they were able to move over to the Palace.  Also, a majority of our guests staying at the tropical/colonial were upgraded (for free) to the palace when they arrived.  Just keep checking!  :)

I don't know what our guests had for the cocktail hour but we ordered the Mexican appetizers.

 

We had a caesar salad that was huge... Tortilla soup... surf and turf... and the dark chocolate fondant.

 

ALL of our guests said it was the best meal they had.  I agree - it was amazing.  I thought the lobster tail may be poor quality but it was delicious.  So much so that our guests went to the caribe restaurant the next night to get more lobster.  

 

For the kids they gave fish sticks or chicken nugget and fries.  

 

After dinner everyone said they were stuffed but a few hours later we had a taco guy come and serve traditional street tacos - some couldn't even try them because they were still stuffed.  oh an no one really ate cake - we had 2 tiers and we would have been fine with 1 tier.

I got the violin... she was good!  Although I hardly remember her playing - at the moment it's the farthest thing from your mind!

Dd you have to pay extra for your food changes? I like the idea having tortilla soup instead.

We had bass and guitar. From what I was able to hear (make sure you have someone record some if it so you can hear it later haha) they did a good job, a very beachy feel! I choose 4 songs, some contemporary some older and they could play all of them!

I'm getting married the day after you are :) I hadn't heard of any other early July brides before! I'm just finishing our OOT bags...We did the cups (from Dollartree) and ordered stickers from Davet Desings, I also made the key card/tip holders that worked out really well. And we did a wedding week survival kit. I'm going to print a few things like a list of things to do, list of everyone's room numbers, an itinerary etc. We put all of this stuff in really nice beach bags that I found at Ardene at West Edmonton Mall.

    • 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!
