Technically you can not pick and choose from different menus but I will still ask...they told us no b/c we wanted a different appetizer and dessert at first but after we told them we did not want to serve our guest raw salmon they allowed us to have different salad and let us have treche leche instead of the Mexican Rice Pudding lol so it doesnt hurt to ask...:)

Hope this helps!

Shalon,

 

I watched your video!  It was fabulous!!  Where did you get your "bride" robe from?  Also, the lights you brought for the zavaz plaza, what kind were they and how many did you bring?   Did you have a welcome party at all?

Also someone asked about the SEAshells and my Sand Ceremony kit...

The Sand Ceremony kit was ordered off of Etsy by a seller named SayAnything Designs heres that link http://www.etsy.com/listing/61083327/unity-sand-ceremony-frame-with-engraving?ref=sr_gallery_2&ga_search_query=unity+sand+ceremony+frame&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes[0]=tags&includes[1]=title&filter[0]=handmade

 

And the gorgeous pearlized Nautilus Shells were from http://www.conchking.com  The gentlemen there were very nice ...he called me once he realized what I wanted the shells for and told me to order different ones if I wanted my sand to hold it....I believe I got the 5-7'' shells not the halves...I would call and speak to them to make sure you're getting the right ones and tell him you want them to be a nice size not too small but not big either...THey shipped pretty fast and were perfect but make sure you carry them on the airplane with you as they are extremely delicate and may break...they made it back home in one piece and we are going to set them up in our new home....they are soo pretty! You ladies will love them!

Aww thank you dear...I loved it ..Ooh the bride robe came from Victorias Secret it was like $60 buxs. I was going to sell it but its so cute and I figured I'll always be his bride so I can wear it forever LOL We actually left all of our lights there didn't feel like tugging them back. We bought 6 boxes but they said that it wasnt enough but it ended up being just enough ...my husband ordered them from somewhere I'll find out for you. But yes we def had a welcome party lol we had the Beach BBQ at yoga palapa it was soo nice and fun we had tikki torches and used the lights to light up the gazebo a bit...the photographer has good shots of how it was all set up I'll post them as soon as she gives them to me =) 

The sad part about that resort is that they make you pay for stuff other ppl left behind ...I swear when they brung out our cake it was Merediths Knife Set (we forgot ours) I remembered seeing it in her pictures :/

If anyone can help on any of the 3 questions that would be great!! off to look at flowers now whilst im in the Wedding Mood!! thanks in advance x

1. There are numerous places you can hold your 'private dinner'. The beach has 3 locations, the back patio of the Zocalo restaurant, the Zavas Plaza (by the wedding location just above R5 on the map), and also 2 banquet halls in the main lobby building. You can also have an area in the Spoon restaurant, and the Italian (although I think it might be a max. of 20)SensatoriMap.jpg

 

2. You have to choose a set menu (and they will not let you mix and match- we tried!) However we were able to do one of the 'add on' courses from a different set menu. We were able to offer our guest the choice of 2 mains, but the numbers had to be given to them about 40 days in advance

 

3. Cocktail hour is not free (unless you have a GI travel agent, in which case you may be eligible for one). They offer most basic cocktails, or are open to you designing one.

I love these shoes! I honestly hadn't thought about dying shoes, but that's a great idea. I found heels on zappos last night that I ordered. I think they are the color of BM dress, but I will have to check in person. My color is also unique like yours so dying shoes might be my best option. I love zappos for their free shipping and great return policy, if they don't work, no worries!

I think I've read on this thread that the sand isn't that deep and heels would work. Any advice? And have you seen the adorable shoes with the light blue soles? The something blue right on the bottom of your feet. Makes for cute pictures. I also love the blue "I Do" crystals I have seen on Etsy.


 


I also purchased my sand ceremony from Say Anything, but I went for the other one... where did you buy your sand from?

    • 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.
