Ahh great! I am so happy you replied. I was forced to buy my dress off the rack, as they said there is no way I would be able to get it on time.

 

We fly into Cancun on March 30 so I will be there a few days in advance. How many people are you expecting? What sort of plans have you made so far? Have you picked out a color scheme? Decorations? etc?

 

This might sound crazy, but would you be interested in teaming up for anything that could help save money? Perhaps decortations etc?

 

I am in the very early stages of planning still, and I would love to hear what your thoughts are.

The system charges your ipod while it is plugged in.  We brought our portable charger just in case though.  We also had our laptops so when we plugged it in it would charge.

So all we need to bring is our iPod and they will plug it into their sound system? There is no need to bring anything else? What about charging? How did you charge your iPod during the reception?

 

Thanks.

People can get away with nice shorts, and definitely jeans.  The only thing they were strict about was wearing a bathing suit in the restaurants.

We did the same for our reception with renting their sound system but i wanted to save some money for my Welcome Beach Party so I am bringing my Ihome. For the background music purpose it will work and I don't have to rent their sound system twice :)

I have Carolina as my WC and I think she's awsome!

 

I was a pretty relaxed planner tho, didnt really finalize anything until about a month before our wedding, when the final payment was due. We had emailed back and forth a bit, but most of it was done over the phone one month out. We chatted, while sending emails back and forth confirming pictures of things I had sent earlier. All details finalized in about an hour and a half :) It was perfect! I'm getting married in 9 days and Im super pumped!! Feel totally prepared and well planned!

 

Try to keep in mind that each WC has a number of brides to dote on and as each ones day gets closer and closer, she will have more time to focus solely on you. Try not to stress. Start collecting pictures of things you like and ideas of what you want and it will all come together in the end. I've heard many brides post great things about the onsite WCs and that they pull it all together in the end anyways!

 

Good luck, happy planning!

Add me to the list... Getting married April 3, 2011 at the Sensatori Azul. Is anyone working with Carolina as a WC? I have found her to not be very helpful. I am hoping to go with a set menu, however, I really want tirmusi for dessert. Has anyone tried to change part of the set menu? Will they allow it?

 

I have also done no planning for wedding decorations. I am hoping that someone who is getting married around the same time might be interested in sharing supplies?

 

Thanks! Super glad a found such a supportive group to be part of.

I remember seeing something about make-up costs a while back, but cant find it sad.gif

 

According to the spa info provided by my WC, make up is $165, has anyone been told otherwise? I thought someone had said it was only $85...

 

Thanks is advance!

 

 

 

Ms.H:

 

Sure I can share! I´m being charged 90 us for the trial day and 60 us on the wedding day (the trial is more expensive because it takes more time getting the idea through. the same price for Bride and bridesmaids. The makeup being used is MAC and the makeup people are all very experienced. The hair is also 90 and 60 us.

 

This is the web where you can check it out.  http://www.floresjulieta.mex.tl/tienda.html  hope t´s useful.

 Hey Maggie,

 

How are you working the welcome beach party?  I was thinking of using our "free" cocktail party for the welcome party, and if we could do a dance party after, that would be great.  Did you discuss this with your wedding coordinator?

Nan, so are bringing this person to the resort? Isn't there a vendor fee you will have to pay?  Or, are you going to them?

    • 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!
