Since it won't be official, do you know if the resort allows it?
I think they might allow it, we are having the symbolic and I asked if our minister could do a coin blessing. I was told that the minister would not but we could get a guest to do it.

I think its crazy that we would have to pay in full before they will confirm where your ceremony or reception will be held! I'm trying not to get frustrated, but its kind of hard not to.

Did Tiffany mention how soon after you'd receive confirmations? Would you mind PM'ing me your detail sheet/budget - I'm wondering how much the "details" will add up to.

I think it's unfortunate how inconsistent they are, I don't think it's fair that they will let some brides pay ahead of time, but not others. (no offense meant to you Tryce by any means, I think it's great they let you get everything settled!). But when I tried to start getting my details settled, I was told I had to wait. And then they have been so slow getting any type of quote. Now I'm less than two weeks from having to pay a large sum and I still do not have all the info I need. And if I send more than one email a day (like if I forget to ask a question, or if she doesn't read the right email) There is still a 24 hour turnaround and sometimes she's not looking at the important one. So there is longer than 24 hour turnaround. Sorry, it's just very frustrating.

Pepper, I am working on my confirmation sheet right now and it says the location of the ceremony and the private reception on it. PM me if you need to and I can email you a copy, if you would like to see it. I would be very persistent about what you need to get done. Because they are now definitely enforcing the 45 day rule. But at least it's not 45 business days. A word of advice, they ask for all your guests and their relationship to you, what type of room category, dates staying, and any special requests. So I would already have your TA prepare that. Because it's taking away from my "one" email a day.

I'm only concerned that the other bride will be wanting the same areas as I do! Has anyone run into this issue? I'm 9 months out but would like to have it set so I don't have to worry about it between now and then.

I agree with you Pepper...if you pay you should know what you are paying for!!!
I'm sorry! It definitely plays out to how many guest you each have. I would guess if you booked first, you should have first choice. I have barely over 30 guests booked right now and I was told my party was too big to have it at Zocolo terrace.

I found the following statement on TripAdvisor.
I definitely feel sorry for the brides too. Maybe they shouldn't have tried to construct them both at the same time.... at least the resort will be finished properly, hopefully they learned their lesson after the catastrophe with our resort.

But you know now they are going to give the brides the option of coming to our resort or Azul Beach.

    • 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. 
    • 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!
