October! Thats crazy, how do they expect people to plan a wedding! This is why I switched to a renewal of the vows. I thought a Mexico wedding would be stress free but I have been finding out recently that is not the case. BUT you are right it will be so worth it when we get there!

Our TA who is one of the major tour operators here in the UK is sending their regional rep to the hotel today to find out exactly what is going on with dates for next year as like you say how do they expect people to plan.

 

Honestly if I hadnt already been to the hotel and fallen in love with the place and the whole atmosphere surrounding it i would have given up on this hotel long ago.  Once our date is confirmed i will be much more relaxed. x

Hey Ladies, do they have people on the resort that do hair and makeup. I saw some pics recently of a wedding at the Cat and it looked like they were getting their hair done at the spa or maybe somewhere else around the resort. I was under the impression that they didn't really offer these services at the hotel.

 

Has anyone gotten their hair and makeup at the cat and if so, were you really happy with them?

They have a salon at the hotel now.  It wasn't there when I got married, so I can't really say much about it.

I guess it depends on what is more important to you.  I was happy my guests were comfortable & shaded.  It was such a hot day.  The tent also shaded us which made for great light for the photos.

I had my hair done there and I was really happy with it. The lady at the spa did a wonderful job and it was very affordable. I think it was only $38 dollars. The only thing I would change would be to bring my own hairspray to the salon with me. My hair is very straights and has a hard time holding a curl. I have to use Paul Mitchell Freeze and Shine. I do not think their hairspray is that strong so some of my curls fell...but like I said I should have brought my super strong spray bc I know my hair will not hold :( Anyway they did great with my style:)

Im still here!! I have been reading along...I just don't have anything usefull to add yet:)

I did buy my dress and bridesmaid dresses though, that was exciting! cheesy.gif

We've got about 15 people booked so far, and we are hoping for around 50 when all is said and done. Our group rate with the travel agent expires on the 15th, so the people booking with us have been RSVP'ing early because they have already deposited their money and know they are coming!

 

I am not sure what to do about photography yet....

I think I am deciding between Sascha Gluck & Ivan Luckie (although Ivan never did respond to my price quote request). Does anyone have any recomendations between these two photogs?

 

Talk soon!

Now my date is confirmed I have contacted a couple of photographers for quotes as I didnt like the ones the hotel uses (I presume they still use the same ones).

 

Do you know if we have to pay for a day pass or a nights accomodation like I see some of the other hotels request? x

    • 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!
