Thanks for that awesome review. I just read it to my hubby and we are so excited.  I hope you don't mind if I use your critics to inform our guest about the different restaurants. I am trying to put that last little details on my welcome letter so your info was perfect.  I am getting calls about the pants for men.  Can they wear jeans to dinner?

I packed my in a suit bag and carried in onboard the plane. Mind you my dress did not require any steaming! Mostly because it was lace. The resort offers steaming for dresses (I wish I really remembered how much but I think about $25-30). Suit was $15? to be pressed!  ****IMPORTANT: The laundry is closed on SUNDAYS. So if your wedding is on Monday (like ours) make sure to send it out early). They made an exception for DH suit to be pressed, but it did not get back to our room til about 1pm Monday.

I did walk down the ramp. Did not hold onto the railing. I was fine, but my sister who was walking me down the aisle started to slip a little. Likely a good thing, since I was near tears, and that moment made me laugh! I managed to hold onto before she slid completely. I would maybe ask if they could sweep the sand off...but it really wasn't to bad. Mind you I think my heels were only about 3 1/2".

* What pool had the most space to hang out at/best swim up bar? I'm just trying to envision where everyone can meet...

* Room service...can you order alcohol to your room?

* One more alcohol related question (sorry!!) - was there Grey Goose? I still have NOT received an actual answer. Claudia said there was when we were there on our site but Angie was never able to confirm. I'll stop bragging about it if it's not available.

 

 

Thanks guys!

-walked by the Teen club, and yes there was a DJ. I know some of our guests would go there late at night to party.

-poolside service: for drinks there is usually someone around taking orders. Food, I have only seen on the premium side, and only a snack about noon-ish.

-you can order a bottle of wine, but not regular drinks. Although I ordered Clamato many times! (I love beer with a bit of Clamato in it....it's an east coast Canada thing!)

-did not see Grey Goose. But then again I was happy with Stoli vodka, so didn't ask. But there is a 'back bar'...ie. the high end stuff they don't show, but if you ask for it, it appears! I wouldn't brag about it....easier for guests to be surprised, than disappointed.

Men can wear jeans! No problems. My DH did than almost every second day. Just make sure they are not trashy, ripped up jeans. But most guests wore khakis or jeans, with golf shirts, hawaiian shirts, etc.

I love the paper lanterns. Where did you buy them? I know you all have said this before so i do apologize for the reduntant question.  Second thing di dthe resort have them down there as an option to buy or use?  If so how much?  Last question did you leave them or carry them back home with you.

I bought our laterns from Asian Ideas. We bough 40...which was way too many! I would suggest about 15 for Zavas Plaza. The resort does not offer them as far as I know, although they do offer Christmas lights.

We carried them down with us, and took most of them home. Only 30...they misplaced the rest somehow. Not a big deal, but I know another girl wanted to buy them from me...so hopefully that still enough for her.

So I am finally back to the real world! Our wedding was stunning-could not have asked for anything better. All of our guests had an amazing time, and the wedding coordinators on site are super. Don't stress too much, they will make everything perfect! I will be trying to get my review and planning journal done in the next week.

 Free wedding pkg worked best for us.  I created a spreadsheet and compared what was offered in each one compared to what I would still have to add.  In the end - the free wedding suited us much better and saved us money.

Wondering what other brides are going with......

 Hi Natasha!

We were about 2 hours late...could have been much worse....although another day in Mexico would have been nice!

Best part our neighbours shovelled our driveway after that major storm, so our surprise and best wedding gift-arriving home to a clean driveway LOL!

 

 

Mwise17: I also went with the Free Sweetheart wedding. Like most of the girls I looked at the packages side by side, and then decided what I really wanted, and what I had to pay for extra anyway. It didn't make sense for us to buy a package when it did nothing for us.

Ladies who are at the resort between May 12-17

 

Brides, I may have a JR Jacuzzi Suite avilable to give to one of your guests. I don't want to be pre-emptive because we are still waiting to hear from one more family member if they want it or not and I am waiting to hear from my travel agaent.

 

If you are interested in taking over the room email me at maggieandjay2012@hotmail.com

Once I hear from my FI cousin yah or nah then I will be ready to set you up with my TA and we can see how to transfer the room.

 

I just want a heads up if anyone is interested. It was orginally my grandparents room but they have decided not to come a couple days ago.

We chose the free package as well.  When we priced everything out, there was nothing in the other packages that we needed or could not live without. It just made good fiscal sense to go with the free and add anything we might desire later........

Just wondering why people were looking to other DJs then what they provide?  Was it a tip from another bride that got some of you on Doremixx?  (not that I know who he/she is, but I see others have used them).

I am getting nervous about making these big decisions not hearing/seeing these people....curious how everyone else came to their decisions...

:)

We too read a BAD review about the resorts DJ very early on. We also priced out DJ's versus using theirs and even to hire our own with the vendor fee was cheaper than there $1,500. We hired DJ Mannia...........

We are getting married in 4 months and still have no one booked!!

 

We have not, but I would NEVER recommend sending anyone photocopies of your credit cards or license. There is no reason for no one in a non-security/ law enforcement situation to be privy to your information like that. I know I sound very distrusting, but nothing about that sounds like a secure request....duplicates could be made of both and the rest is a fraudster's dream. :-(

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • 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?
