Hey,

Just wondering how you got the free wedding pkg offered to you?  Usually it's only a promo for US brides and I see you are from Toronto, so I'm curious!!  Thank you!

Sky wedding - I thought about it too - but in the end I chose the beach because we've always wanted a true beachfront wedding.

I have attached a document with all the private reception sites.

Not sure.  It has always been an option.  I haven't actually "booked" the pkg because I didn't do all the math until a week ago but I know for sure that it was offered and discussed with my TA.  The only thing you have to do is buy an upgraded room - premium.  She even verified availability of the room for me already based on the "free wedding" pkg.  Also - if you look at the Lomas site you can see that the offer is valid in the US or Canada.

Hi ladies!

 

Sorry it's been so long, I've been traveling for work and on Sunday off to the Bahamas!! I can't wait. This will be our last vacation as an engaged couple. Only 6 months until our wedding!

 

I'm also waiting on confirmation on the Plaza Zavez for the reception. l wonder why it takes so long??

 

I did hear from a past bride that you can transfer your sheers from the ceremony location to the reception area without cost (with a little agressiveness), so keep that in mind.

 

I feel so lost and indecisive on flowers! and everything for that matter. I think planning a wedding for a year is too long. Too much time to change your mind! After our trip this week, it will be planning central in our house.

 

I've been so stressed with the details of the AHR, but everything is so expensive. I don't want to pay reception prices for a party. Grrr!

Ideally, I would prefer a touch of elegance - but i am having problems finding a pic on the net that may resemble my idea.  So either the above or something with deep blues, silver, mayan symbols - if it all exists!?  Has anyone else found great maracas?huh.gif?


 

I've confirmed the Plaza for ours on the 26th.  It took a week and a half before I got the confirmation if that is any reassurance.

 

Here is a pic of the vases I would like to double as centre pieces for the reception - were they the same ones you were thinking?:

Hope you have a great bday and vacation!  I'm jealous bunny_4.gif 
 


 

Thanks for the well wishes! So looking forward to a week away! I will keep my eyes open for nice tequila glasses and macaras. (I'll try and take pictures if they let me...)

 

As for the flower vases....not at all the ones I had been thinking of! LOL I think those could be quite nice as table deco, especially if they can do the flowers with something that hangs down just a little (vines, etc.).

It certainally was NOT offered. We basically went after it with our TA. We are in a premium room, and you need to have at least 15 other room nights (ie. 3 other rooms booked for 5 nights each, etc.) to get the promotion. As far as I know, you can visit the Karisma site and look under specials. Even if the promo is only for US or Canada, ask! You might not get the full promo, but certainally gain a few bonuses. Originally I was trying for the bride/groom stay free, but instead we got the free wedding package. JUST ASK!

As for the tall vases, the ones I saw were almost more like large pots. Maybe we have different pictures?
 

Anything specific I can keep my eyes out for? FI and I are going down with friends next week to celebrate my bday :)
 

Could you email the pictures to me as well please? I would love to get a better idea of what looks good.

were you upgraded to the premium suite because you had that wedding package or did you qualify for the free wedding package b/c you were booking a premium room?  :)

    • 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
