Finally Booked!

Recommended Posts

Woohoo! We finally booked our trip and got our confirmation for ROR on Feb 20, 2009. I'm SUPER excited and its starting to feel a more real. Thank you all so far for all of the info you have provided here...it really helped a lot in our decision making process.

 

On a side note, I've seen lots of posts re: the outside vendor policy at the resort (mostly photographers)...has anything ever come of this?

 

My TA said that the WC typically isn't in touch with you until about 2 months prior to the wedding...is there anything that I should be doing in the meantime until I hear from themhuh.gif?

Congrats on booking your date! I remember how excited I was to do that.

 

Lets see....in terms of the photographer, some of us had problems, some didn't. If you chose to bring your own photographer, just keep in mind that they may or may not be approached by the on-site photographer. Hopefully, you'll be fine in that area unless they drastically change their policy on this.

 

Your TA is correct, Chandlyn typically won't contact you until 2 months before your wedding. However, you can email her anytime you want, with any questions that you have. She is typically extremely busy & it may take her a few days (or weeks) to respond, but she will eventually. Being that your wedding isn't until next year, she may be slower to respond.

In the meantime, you can start to think about what you really want in terms of your ceremony & reception. Do you know what location you'd like to have the ceremony & reception? If you do, I suggest emailing Chandlyn with your request so that it is reserved. The restaurants tend to get booked early, especially if there are other weddings on the same day as yours.

Do you know what flowers you'd like, other decorations?

Have you started looking at STD's & invitations? There is so much that you could do now...so get to it!! LOL

 

Hope I've helped you out a bit!

HAHA! You aren't supposed to tell me that the stressful part starts now! I thought that choosing a place was tough.

 

We've got letters going out tomorrow that our TA helped us put together including rates/other info. I'm not really doing save the dates, but will send out a boarding pass invitation as we get closer with detail about the wedding/any other activities. I'm a little ahead of the game....they are all laid out on a template and just need to have the actual text filled in!

 

Thinking about "natural touch" flowers as my FAVORITE has always been tulips...logic tells me that tulips probably aren't huge in jamaica! Has anyone seen the tulips from angelaccents?

 

In terms of reception sites etc, I want to try to keep the $$ reasonable...not a huge fan of what I've read about the $50/person options (we'll have probably 50 or so). Has anyone got more detailed information about the different options?

 

Fun fun....so many things to think about

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
