Hi Ladies -

 

Sorry I have been MIA. I've been back for almost a week and have been thrown back into the thick of it at work. I will post a review eventually and am happy to answer some questions for you as well.

 

Actually, I have peaked on here a couple of times but have been hesitant about posting my experience as I have a mixed review. I am trying to get somethings settled with Karisma and once I do I'll let you know how it all turned out. I hope I am not freaking anyone out...I am just type A and I had a brand new on site WC who was less than organized so I was very stressed. There were some mistakes but overall the wedding was beautiful and I will remember the day fondly.

 

In the meantime I can tell you the resort is beautiful we had perfect weather the whole week I was there, my bridal party looked lovely the food at the reception was great and I think the pics are going to be great. I haven't gotten a teaser from my photog yet but when I do I will post some.

 

Hope all is well with you all.

 

Amanda

Whoa...that is kinda crazy.  The spa menu I have says $85 for make-up (50mins).  And that includes a preview.

 

Which spa menu do you have?

Plan on ordering 25-30 laterns tomorrow, colors turquoise, green and white. But we are bringing them with us. When is your wedding? If it works we could both use the turquoise and white. We plan on buying large vases at Walmart when we arrive to use as the centerpieces and then put limes into them. Then likely some tealights around the bottom of the vase. We arrive on January 19 (a few days ahead of our guests, and plan on doing the shopping on the 20-21) However my hair/makeup friend arrives on January 22.

Let me know if that might work!

 

Also can't remember if it was this page, but someone asked me about maracas and tequila glasses. We went to Market 28 in Cancun (and as luck has it my battery in my camera died...sorry). But the handpainted maracas ranged in price from about $5-10/piece depending on size. The $5 were about 8" long, while the $10 ones were larger. I am sure if you bought a whole bunch you could easily get them down to about $3/piece. As for handmade tequila glasses....saw lots of prefab ones with hand painting on them (ranging from $3-7). As for ceramic ones, only saw a few and they were about $5-7 /piece.

Here are a few photos of the gazebo by the pier, my guess was about 8'x8' and about 7 1/2' tall. My fiancee is about 6'2" for comparison.PA180057.jpg

PA180028.jpgIn case anyone wanted a close up of the gazebo. Also we counted 4 electric boxes in the grasser area (each holding 4 plugs) and the gazebo had about 5 outlets. So in case you want power, it is available. I took a bunch of other shots, if anyone is interested let me know.

I have the hard copy version of that same brochure, but I definitely notice a few differences.  The hair prices are the same though, $85 & $55. 

 

They gave this to me at the spa during my visit.  There is no date typed on it, but that seems ridiculous to change prices that much in just a few months.

 

What price does everyone else have for make-up?

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
