Hello and welcome!

I dont really have any information on the new wedding coordinator, but I am sure she will be great also.

I think this resort would completely meet your needs. Our group will be between 56-60 people and we have some children and babies coming as well, so I think you'll be okay! If you read through this thread you will find out everything there is to know about the Catalonia Riviera Maya.

 

On another note...to the brides who are marrying soon, and ones who already have-what have you done, or are you doing for reception decorations in the Pure Chill Out Bar? I need some inspiration and or pictures to guide me! I am also not exactly sure what the resort provides besides palm leaves and white linens...for example, do they offer candles or vases if we buy flowers?

Hi All

 

Thanks for all the great info and inspirations we are looking at doing the deed at the end of Febuary begining of March in 2012. We will probably have a group of 40 or more and I was wondering about how this works for the private dinner do you have to pay for over 20 guests or is that the largest group they can handle?

 

Cheers

Hey guys, I have a few other questions....

 

1. who did you get to do your make-up? My sister is doing my hair, but I am not sure what the options for make-up are.

2. who are you getting do perform the ceremony? We are doing the renewal of vows, and want to write our own vows, but I don't have anyone to actually perform the ceremony. Do you think someone from the resort would do it? I am not sure what the options are.

3. specifically about possible flowers for the guests tables at the reception... some of you have mentioned buying the $50 flowers for the pilars and then transfering them to the reception. Will they take apart these large bouquets of flowers for you and put them into smaller bunches for the tables?

I think this hotel is perfect for all ages as you can relax or be involved in all the activites - you can do whatever you want.  It really does have something for everyone which is why we chose to go back and get married here - as its excellent value as well.

 

The new wc; pilar; is really good she has been contacting me recently as I leave in 9 days - woo hoo :-)

From reading above, it sounds like the wedding coordinator is leaving, does anyone know anything good or bad about the new one? Any info is much apprecaited on anything you'd like to share. Like I said I am new to all of this, so it can get a little confusing and stressful at times trying to figure all this out :).

Thanks a bunch!

Hey Kristen,

 

I am having my reception at the pure chill out too and I am buying the round Japanese paper latterns with batteries in them, half in turquiose and half in black (those are our wedding colours). I also got aqua and black diamond confetti for the tables and I am going to look for turquoise tea lights to put on the table too. I am also buying chair sashes for the wedding ceremony in turqoise, and them I am going to ask that they change them and put them on the reception chairs. I am also going to buy the flowers so I guess I will just discuss with them about using them at the reception.

Also we are doing a renewal of the vows and are probably going to hire a minister to perform the ceremony. Another girl who got married at the cat did this through a contact the hotel had and they were very happy with them, so its that or someone from the hotel, but I think I like the minister idea.

I also got turqoise silk fans for the ladies for the wedding ceremony. We are going in May so it is going to be hot!

I don't know who will do my make up, it would be nice for someone else to do it but I don't know if people from the hotel do and if they are good. I may just apply my foundation and have my friend do my eyes. I am worried about my hair too just because its hard to work with being that I have a ton of it and its thick, I may get the hair trial done right when I get there so I know that I will like it day of. I have had a lot of bad hair-dos and want it to be good on the wedding day!

Josie,

 

I am so excited for you, 9 days!  So Pilar had been good, do they arrange a lot of stuff before hand like the reception and details like hiring people, like DJ, minister etc?

 

Do you have everything all ready to go? I can't wait to hear all about it!

Thanks for sharing Lacey!

I am really struggling with how much I should try to bring along with me....We are doing gift bags, and with that comes excess luggage! I want to have tea lights, but I dont want to have to bring the glass holders for them because that could get heavy. What are you putting your tea lights in? Also, where did you get your paper lanterns? Do you have them already? I am curious about how much space they would take up in suitcase....

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
