THANK YOU!!!

Hi,

 

Originally they said it'll be $150 external vendor charge for Styling Trio, and $500 for the wedding photographer, but they didn't charge me anything. I think they forgot about $150 for the makeup/hair, and as for the photographer, I have rented them a room the night of the wedding at the Beach resort, and they were guests at my wedding, so no $500 fee paid, as I introduced them as my friends and included them in my guest count. Hope this helps.

IrenaPatrick,

 

who did you hire for Photos?

Hi, We've hired Jaime Glez. Him and his wife work as a team, and are amazing! I can't describe how happy I am with my decision! their prices are very reasonable, for the quality and the amount of time they provide! check out their website http://www.jaimeglez.com/

I am using maritime travel out of Langley. The lady we have directly deals with the resort. Our ceremony location and reception location are held for us. When is your wedding?

Hi Everyone!

 

I have been following this thread for a while now! My Wedding date is Nov. 6, 2014. At 4pm ceremony will be at the gazebo. Were so excited to be staying at the Barceló Maya Palace. I have nothing but wonderful things about this resort. We will have about 30-3 people attending. So we decided to go with the Mint Breeze package. Can someone please send me the packages and any extras they have just in case there's something I've missed. Also the menu options as well. Does anyone know if I could do my wedding rehearsal the night before on the beach kind of like a little Bonfire thing Lol. Thank you in advance!

HEY :)

 

I looked up youtube videos on how to choose a location. While my wedding is not until Oct 29th, the location and reception area was the FIRST thing I put on hold.  I asked for the coral beach because there is nobody actually behind to swim into your photos. I have heard the palmeras beach is the main beach at the Tropical (the hotel we are staying at), but they do a good job keeping everyone away from the wedding area during (from what ive read). And then there is Playa Azul, is the furthest by the Maya Caribe, which apparently is GORGEOUS, but kind of an ordeal to get your guests over there.

 

check out youtube for Barceló Maya Tropical beach wedding, that gives you the basis of what the wedding will look like. I think I watched a girl named "lauren" her video was good on getting an overall feel! I have a feeling privacy is not something that exists in mexico for beach weddings... but honestly who cares!? You chose Mexico, which is already a non-traditional choice, so really, whats a couple extra people watching gonna do? :) And to be honest, I think you will only see your husband to be and your family/guests.

 

I am pretty sure I have read that someone had their wedding planner running around getting people out of the way :P

 

Where are you having your reception? I chose Palmeras Beach. Ive been concerned about wind, ... ill be excited to read your review when you come back :) I have a huge booklet of info for location if you want it. just PM me your email and I can send it to you :)

NurseNurse0101,

 

so we just booked a trip down to check out the resort! we leave March 31st for a week. I will take pitcures of the weddign and reception locations for this thread. I believe we are getting married and having our reception at the same locations. So il get pics of these and maybe even when they are set up for weddings!!

Hi im just starting to plan my wedding january 2015 and i was looking at the Strawberry passion package, as i love the beach wedding reception pictures! Do you know how much each extra person is for that package? Im expecting about 30ppl as well, but the package is only for 15?

 

Thanks!


@@CaseyH

 Just wondering if you know what the cost was for extra people on the Strawberry package? Also did they cahrge you for using their speakers to plug your ipod in?

Hey :) The package extra per person for strawberry is 66$.  I know its a lot but if you can cut out things like dance floor then I think its totally worth it.  Our final payment deadline is March 15... we have so far 35 people coming , and then possibly 4 more with other flights etc. so now we are almost at 40! (way more than I expected). SO, now the dance floor is out for sure and we are keeping decorations very very simple. Which is totally ok by me. :)

We just bought a house too, so all this stuff is adding up. With $3800 for the 15 people for strawberry, and then having to pay for 25 more people at $66 each... our base rate right now is $5450... for JUST the wedding and reception. WHICH, we are adding on a couple hours to the reception. I am pretty sure its an extra $14 per person for the extra hour at the reception. I could be wrong though.

 

anyways, it is costly that's for sure. I will be interested to see if it ends up being cheaper than a wedding here at home LOL!!

What is everyone doing for bridesmaid gifts?! I need some ideas! I got them personalized tumblers and tank tops when I asked them to be in my wedding and I got my MOH a beach bag. Feel free to throw out some ideas:)

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
