Hi Ladies,


I just posted this in another area but I thought I'd do it here as well.


I just received the cards for our room key holders that I ordered. With my discount code I was able to buy 500 for the same price as 50, so I have lots left!


They are standard business sized cards with a glossy beach pic and saying on the front, and blank on the back. A nice touch to slide into the clear card holders to make your gifts a bit more personal.


I will send you as many as you want for 5.00 USD, including padded envelope and shipping.


If you still have a few months left in your planning I can also send you a link to the ebay listing where I ordered the clear tags and black stretchy key rings from China for a great price (9.50 USD all included for 20 of each of them)  They took 7 weeks to arrive though so you just need to have plenty of time! :)

@@TaraW - where are you directing your guests for cocktail hour? I've asked Yasmin where the closest grill or bar is and having a hard time getting an answer ha ha and I know you and I are getting married at the same location. By the way I just left Mexico today. My best friend got married at Bahia Príncipe Tulum which is only a few minutes from Barcelo. It got me so excited for my wedding and also was a wake up call that I need to finish planning !!

Hey ladies ! I have a question about the vendor fees. So I'm thinking about sourcing out Styling trio for hair and make up for myself and my bridesmaids. There would be 2 stylists and I for sure want a trail run. My concern is that if I have 2 different stylists come in on 2 different days would that be 2000 USD? That seems insane to me. So I'm thinking what if i book a room for the night before my wedding in my name? Would that help avoid the vendor fees? That way they would have bracelets and could do my trail hair the day before. Has anyone done this and is it allowed? Thanks :)

Hey there,


What I was told when having this discussion months ago with my wc is the vendor fees for the makeup artists, etc is 150.00, photographers are 500.00. If you are booking them a room instead, then they want you to book it for a minimum of TWO nights for the two people, not just one night.  Now that's just what I was TOLD, but I don't know of past brides have managed to do anything different without any issues. (i.e. booked the one day, not two) You may be able to get away with one night, but not sure.


Any chance you can hop in a cab and go to them for the trial run the day before and save the costs? My hair/makeup team are 5 min from the resort so it's much cheaper than paying the vendor fee. They actually offered to pick me up as well and take me back to their place so I don't have to pay the fee, which I think is amazing of them!! They've been so great already and I'm so glad I went with them.


Wow, time is sure flying by. I can't believe we leave for the resort in 7 weeks!!!    

Oops! Forgot to add: The closest grill is Rancho Grande bar and grill. I've included a map in our welcome package that has the location marked off and wrote it in our wedding itinerary page for everyone as well. 

I've tried to add the map to here, but it wont let me!

That's a great idea! I'll ask them how close they are. And if the vendor fee is only 150 that's manageable compared to the 500 for photographers. I cannot believe how quickly everything is coming up! It really is flying by isn't it ? I haven't made the welcome letter or bags yet, or thought about centre pieces at all. Oops!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
