Got word today the hotel is DEFINITELY full most of May. Now My TA and I just booked 5 people thru FUNJET and they are running a special that ends tomorrow that the rate is very close to the group rate. The sale ends tomorrow though. Apple vacations is sold out for my weekend.


So It would appear than I am about ready to tell everyone that didn't book sorry but you don't get to go to my fabulous fun wedding that everyone will be talking about for all of time...LOL Sorry, humor is how I deal with the touch of dissapointment I feel.

The room card was a martha idea as well that i thought would be fun for people.  Plus it will save sometime trying to figure out where everyone is since the resort is booked and some are on the family side and other on the adult.  This is what the card looks like. I formatted it so three will print on one cardstock. I hope this helps. 








Please Use this card to add everyoneâ€s room number to this list!

Our quote has been the same for 3 adults in a room as 2 adults in a room.  Here is what our guests are quoted on our website for 3 days:


Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 1 Adult - $651.92

Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 2 Adults - $682.08

Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 1 Adult - $682.08

Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 2 Adults - $532.44

Luxury Jacuzzi Junior Suite - 3 Adults - $532.44


Yes, this is per person.

We have a couple options.....guests can book AS through online sites like travelocity, expedia, etc....or they can go through our TA and select another Karisma resort of their choice. Initially I was upset about this and after rationalizing it, the truth of the matter is we gave people ample time to book their rooms and to have the convenience of an interest free payment plan through DW.com.  At the end of the day, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. I can't agonize over the people that didn't play their part and I truly believe in my heart that all the people that were meant to be there will be, whether they booked last year or tomorrow. :-) I figure life is too short to get spazzed about something I have no control over and as arrogant as it sounds...it's their loss. It will still be the day of FI and my dreams! :-)

We are back!  We had a sensational time at this resort and our events.  We recieved many upgrades without even asking. We stayed in a honeymoon suite ocean side and all of our guests were upgraded to the premium section.  I will post a detailed review in the next couple weeks but here is a summary of the events we had:

welcome cocktail reception at palapa yoga:  great canapes.  Our friend brought an amazing bose sound system and we danced a lot.  We also had a cigar roller which really impressed a lot of our guests. Very good security - they even tried to stop my sister from coming back from the bathroom b/c they said that there was a private event taking place!  LOL.

ceremony at beach zocolo:  wonderful location - still my favourite.  My guests told me that they even stopped people from crossing behind the ceremony.  Very important detail for brides who want a legal marriage at this resort - the ceremony CAN BE PREFORMED IN ENGLISH!  There was no problem with this - its not a requirement to have the ceremony in spanish at all!!!!  The judge was also open to adding anything we wanted before and after his "official speech".  He does have a script he has to say and the wording was fine to me - and again - it was spoken in ENGLISH!  (only emphasizing this b/c I know a lot of people on this forum have changed their decision to have a legal wedding in Mexico because they thought it needed to be spoken in spanish).  I added the hand ceremony and sand ceremony to our wedding and incorporated family.  One thing that took us by surprise is that you have to thumbprint your wedding certificate after you sign it - make sure you bring a wet nap to clean your thumb afterwards!  The judge had a dry napkin but it was hard to get the ink off our thumbs.  I was concerned that I may touch and damage my wedding dress - but in the end this did not happen. 

Reception:  @ plaza zavas.  Very nice location.  Food was family style and servers served guests individually.  The assortment was amazing and guests loved the variety.  The lobster tail was a big hit.  Food was plenty and seconds were abundant for those who desired.  Amplifier was rented - great sound.  The only thing that kind of sucked is that when your time expires - they are quick to shut it down and start removing all the linens, decor etc.- but I guess this is to be expected - we just moved the party to the mojito lounge.   We hired the mariachi band - awesome dinner entertainment.  Big hit with the guests and nice touch to the ambiance.  Our cake was a cupcake cake and it was fantastic - better than I expected.  We had a petit cake on top with our personalized cake topper (bobble heads to our likeness).  It was a hit with guests and no where near what I thought it would cost. 

Farewell group dinner at spoons:  awesome too!  Menu is std - ceaser salad, bean soup, choice of chicken and steak followed by cheesecake.  Great presentation and flavour.  Guests all complimented the food.  Only thing that happened is that some guests were really hungry when they got there and collected a few plates of snacks for the table from the buffet.  Apparently the servers did not look to pleased about this - but did not stop anyone from doing this.  The section they close off provides a cozy semi private area for entertaining your guests.  I think it makes a nice area for a wedding reception for those of you who are looking to save money by not hosting a private reception.  We were an hour late for our reservation - 7:30 instead of 6:30 - and they were still very accomodating. 

My biggest recommendation:  bring your own photographer if you can afford it.  Our photographers were amazing.   They captured ALL of our events and had no strict time limits. Other things they did for us: 

1.  Engagement photos at the tulum ruins

2.  Trash the dress #1:  used a long white dress from BCBG I purchased and we went to a cenote for some creative photography.  They got tonnes of underwater photos of us and photos that captured above and below the water line.  These are the photos I am looking most forward to seeing.  Even when we felt pressured to get back to the resort because of time constrictions - they kept encouraging more photos! 

3.  Trash the dress #2:  used the original wedding outfits - didn't trash them totally.  Lots of cool and amazing shots again.  Over 500 photos taken in this session alone.  LOL.  

Our photographer is from the Toronto area - and I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride!   

I can't wait to see all these pics and more! I will post some when I get them. 

Only thing I would do differently - stay longer!  Normally we are not fans of staying at an all-inclusive resort for more than a week but we wish we had chosen the 10 day option. Everyday we were busy with one thing or another and when we weren't - we were trying to spend time with all of our guests.  It left no alone time to unwind.  We decided to go away in April now...Even some of our guests requested info on extending their stay - a testiment to how nice it was to stay at this resort. 

Good luck to all the ladies that continue to plan their weddings!  I will post better details and photos in a planning thread as I find the time!

    • 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.
