This helps so much. Sounds perfect to me! The ages of our guests are similar to yours. I have one more quick question- Was there a time limit for your reception? Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it! -Tara
Glad I could help! :) Yes, private receptions are 4 hours. After my reception we all jumped in the pool and swam until the guard told us the pool was closed lol! But if you want to continue partying there are options like the mojito lounge that stay open late with music, hookah, etc! :)

SO pretty! We just confirmed Samuel as our photographer for next April and I'm even more excited after seeing your pics! Just curious, when did you do your TTD? The day after? Also, are you planning to have your dress cleaned and preserved or what do most people do after TTD sessions? Is there any issue with it actually ruining the dress? Sorry...I'm trying to decide if I want to do it as I love my dress and want to keep it in good condition for any future kids haha. 
I am so excited for you that you just booked Samuel. He is seriously great. We did our TTD the day after the wedding. Sam picked us up at Azul and drove us to Puerto Moreles beach, which is about 15 min away. We did the TTD in the evening and we had to be in the lobby the next morning at 4:30 to catch our transfer to the airport! I was nervous about the dress drying in time but it worked out! As soon as we got back to the room, I rinsed my dress in the shower and then put it on the patio to dry. At about midnight I decided to go ahead and pack it up and it was surprisingly mostly dry. I put it in the garnet bag and then rolled it up and put it in a carry on bag by itself. We flew out of ATL but live in CLT so 2 flights and a 4 hour drive later, I took it out o the bag at about 8:00 that evening. I put it on my porch to finish drying and it's totally fine! I will have it cleaned professionally and then decide to keep it or turn it into a short dress to wear on our anniversary. Overall, I feel like "trashing" it didn't actually ruin it at all. :)

What are some of your favor ideas and bridesmaid gift ideas?
I actually did a post on what I got for my girls and I know it seems like a lot but I really really appreciated them coming out to MX for me and everything else that they did. I also didn't really spend that much considering how much I got. I believe I included a price breakdown in the post. :) enjoy and hope it gives you some ideas! :) http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/86020/my-bridesmaids-and-flower-girl-gifts-lots-of-pictures-some-diy-things#post_1901613

Where didnyounladies buy your hanging lanterns and lights to decorate the reception space?
I bought paper lanterns with LED lights at http://www.paperlanternstore.com. Price was pretty reasonable at $3.75 each for the 12 inch round. They have a big assortment of other styles and colors.

Ok. That is great!! Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! :) 

 

So you felt like guests could party and have music for four hours without worrying about being too loud? 

 

The resort looks so classy and family friendly, so I just want to make sure a lively wedding party wouldn't bother guests at all. 

 

Sorry to ask so many questions. I appreciate your help!

No problem- it's my pleasure. Yes we were definitely a loud and lovely bunch! We partied hard and had a really great time. I had people all over the resort telling me my DJ was amazing and awesome and the best they heard week. (There were weddings going on all week). We actually even had a couple of "wedding crashes!" Lol. We were all partying and my sister goes "wait- who are those people?!" Hahaha we had already eaten and given toasts and speeches so I was like "whatever- the more the merrier!"

Here's a funny picture my sister took of me with the wedding crashers: 400

We were in a swim up and we loved it.  It was quite private because the premium section does not get much foot traffic from the rest of the resort.  I guess you have to decide what you want for your wedding trip.

 

If you love to swim ad think you just want to chill in front of your room, it is perfect for that.  If you want to hang out with your friends at the main pool or beach you might not get as much out of it.

 

Also, they will not allow a bunch of your friends come to your pool and hang out that are not premium section guests.  I saw one bride do this and her guests got kicked out by security.

 

Also, note, the premium sections are much quieter than the rest of the resort.  If you have a loud, partier group, the adults section is great for that because it has a DJ, other adults, etc.

    • 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!
