Hi Jenny, my name is Tammy :)

 

Yeah when we decided on 8/8/8 we totally didn't think about hurricane season. Now we are a bit worried but trying to think positive.

 

I love the lounge area!! How many guests are you having? Mine will be about 40.

Other than Le Meridien, I am checking out Aqua, Marriott (both JW & CasaMagna) and Paradisus. Kinda funny how I am only checking out one AI resort. We will see how everything goes. I will take Lots and Lots and LOTS of pictures!! Hopefully by the end of next week, I will have a resort set to go! cheer2.gif

Jenny, I noticed you live in New Jersey! I live in Jersey City, Newport!

Although I went to Aqua, I didn't get to look around bc the WC was on her lunch break and we wanted to check out all of the other hotels on the strip. Casamagna was my #1 choice! I had stayed there a few years ago and fell in love. Unfortunately at the time I went for my site visit, they didn't have my date and I didn't wanna budge lol I've never been to the Paradisus so I don't have any advice sad.gif

YAY NJ! I live in Freehold (close to Great Adventure)

I'm estimating between 50-100. Hoping its more towards the 50 lol We have large families and he's got a huge circle of friends. The fewer the guests, the better my menu can be wink.gif

Don't worry about the hurricanes.. like you said, stay positive!

So your guests are staying at Le Meridien? I decided against staying there since they don't have an AI option.

I have the same dilema with the number of guests! We are thinking of doing two rounds of invitations, since we really don't want to go over 40 people! I feel kinda bad we won't be inviting some of our "close" friends.....

Do you think it is a bad idea to stay at a non AI resort? This weekend will be my first time to Cancun so I don't know how easy it is to get food, drinks outside of the resort, and how expensive food and drinks are at the resort... I am calculating at about $100 per person per day for food and drinks.. do you think that would be enough? hmmm.... so confused....... huh.gif

Which hotel are you staying at for your site visit? Cancun is the easiest place to get around! It's one road where all of the hotels are on and across from them are many many restaurants, bars, and shops. I've never been to a non-AI so I can't really tell you how expensive it will be. Depends what you like.. if you like trying different foods every night and want to get out of the resort, then it's cool. For me, I just preferred to make my guests trip hassle-free. Also another factor is liquor. AI's liquor is included. At a non-AI, the bill could get pretty high if you're drinking 3-4 pina coladas by the pool everyday lol

Jenny,

 

I am so sorry to hear this! This very thing happened to me in the middle of my planning. I was devastated at first, but went and met the new one (I had met the other one, too) and was really comfy with this one, too.

It is an initial shock, just make sure that the old one gave the new one all the information regarding your wedding, details, info, etc.

Good luck :)

3-4 pina coladas sounds like FUN!!!! smile72.gif That is the kind of vacation I want to be in!!!!!

I will be staying at Le Meridien for the first two nights, then one night at Paradisus.. I was hoping that I will get a sense of an AI and a non AI this way. I am planning to have the tour and meetings with WC on Saturday, and sunday we will spend some time to get a sense of Cancun downtown and visit some travel agencies to see if there are good activity packages I could do with guests. and then on Monday would be the paradisus WC meeting and then we are off back home! I am just hoping I can fit all this in!!!

Do you think it is safe to drive there? I had some warnings about corrupt cops eyeing on tourists... Is this true? should I be concerned? I was hoping that I could visit Costco and walmart, and I think we may need a car to get to these places.. no?

    • 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!
