Hi girls! I have been MIA for September, it's the busiest month for us teachers! Anyway, I am sorry, I still have pictures of all the reception & cocktail options from our site visit in August that I specifically took for all you girls. I guess I have to put them on shutterfly or something like that & just post the link.

 

I've been catching up reading the last few pages that I've missed & it seems a lot of you are starting to get really upset. I know it's hard, but having been down there & seeing what the WC does, just try to relax and cut them some slack. You have to remember that when it is your day, they will be focused on YOU, and not the 3,000 emails of the same question that they get a day. I know it's hard bc we are trying to plan & need the correct info...believe me, I get that...it's frustrating!! ....but at the same time, try to understand their side of it too. I really don't think (from my experience) they are trying to nickel & dime. Some of their policies are annoying (photog & DJ)- but most of the resorts do this. Yes, the Barcelo's price is a little higher than other resorts, but in all fairness we knew that going in. The resort is absolutely stunning...and sometimes in life, you get what you pay for....hopefully, we will all be getting beautiful weddings filled with moments that will stay with us and our guests.

I sent the WC 2 pics of cakes that I liked...a wedding cake and a grooms cake and she said that the chef would be able to do both and got me prices right away

So thought I would share in case any of you wanted to do something special

Quick question for the reception... I am doing the Mint Breeze package so our reception will be in the banquet room... I was planning on doing my own music via ipod playlists but do you think we need the dance floor? I see you can rent a dance floor, but for the 1-2 hrs that people may or may not be dancing... the carpet is ok no? I assume the dance floor is more for those doing the beach reception.

Also... anyone know how good the sound quality is with the ipod and their equipment?

Hey everyone,
I know the price increase sucks but if you read the fine print it states that prices are subject to change. sad.gif

How detailed were the pictures of your cake? Can you show us? I want to be sure I am super clear. I am going to do something simple just so it doesn't look a hot mess...especailly after some of the dw cakes I have seen on the site :)

I had emailed Claudia awhile back about this... She said "The audio system that is included is one big speaker were you can plug in your Ipod and Cd´s and also a microphone is included." No extra charge for this.

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
