Hi! If you look back through the thread this question came up before. I believe you can bring your own sand but I don't think you can take it out of Mexico to bring home.

Sand.....if you are bringing sand which is purchased at a store (ie. colored) you can use it at the resort. Or use the sand offered by the resort (which is prepacked and cleaned sand). HOWEVER, you cannot bring sand back from the beach (technically). Customs considers it an organic substance which is not allowed to cross the border.

Hi Jenny,

 

Did you have your hair and makeup done at the resort?  If so, who did you use?  You look beautiful!  :)   Also, how far in advance did you make your appointments for the day of the wedding?

 

Thanks! :)

I have been enjoying married life since our May 18th wedding, and we still cannot believe it's all over & done with.

I was joking with some friends that I need to find a new hobby now that the planning is over haha!

We still haven't had much time to catch up on writing reviews and what not, but I'd love to share some pictures we just got from our photographers- Shenko Photography. I HIGHLY recommend them, Eugenia and Erik are beyond talented and super easy to work with! Their price was one of the best for the value, we had them for 8 hours [plus about 1hr early they arrived at the spa which they didn't charge for!]; We also did the TTD at a local cenote from 6AM to 12PM. We were so happy with our choice, and I'm sure the pix say it all! One day I promise to give you all a detailed review and also a planning thread =)

 

Sorry I know there are a lot of pix, but I love them all so much!!!

xo Jen

I have a ODD question. I have been to Riveria Maya many many times and stayed at 3-4 other resorts. They all had the Iguanas wondering all over the property. To all the resent brides or those who have visited Azul Sensatori, do they have Iguanas wondering the property?

 

No one has mentioned it. Silly me I got my nephews children's "Learning about Iguanas" for their welcome bag. Will be meaningless if there not on the property. LOL

 

Thanks

Never noticed the name of the store, and it was over 2 years ago. I took a look with Google maps, and to be honest, I think the spot where the store was is now a bank....so not even sure it even exists anymore. (again, not sure how up to date Google streetview is) But Market 23 is the food/party market area, so if there is a spot to find those types of supplies I would guess it would be there. Good luck!

Hi KTBeach2014!!

Yes I had my hair & make-up done at the resort spa. Angelis did both for me, she was wonderful. I wanted my hair down, but wind and humidity made me think otherwise. I was going for a looser look, but honestly, I'm glad she did it the way she did b/c it kept all day & night! I took advantage of the bridal hair & makeup preview- b/c I was nervous about letting someone other than my hair stylist from NYC touch my hair haha But all went well she understood the little things I asked her to change and wound up really happy with the results! I booked the appointments for myself as well as my bridal party & parents about a month in advance, through the WC. I wanted it to be taken care of before we arrived, then just followed up with the spa when we checked in and all was confirmed :)

Happy planning!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
