Hi both....

 

Thanks for the replies....i have read also that I would have to purchase the pearl $950 to do the sky package too.... I will speak to my tour operator, just deciding between Azul Sensatori and Azul Fives at the moment.

 

Thanks again :)

 

We are booking the travel and wedding this week OMG so exciting!!

 

i doubt we will go for the memorable moments package add on as we would simply not be able to justify it with only having 20 guests on the actual day!

 

So, does anyone know the measurements for the gazebo on the sky deck...so I can purchase the material as appropiate.....? Oh and the chairs, that would be fabulous........has anyone else done this??

There is an "official sensatori resort" thread that has all the dimensions from everything... It's great. (I'm on my phone and can't link the thread from here, sorry!)

@@KendraS Ya at first we were thinking we'd switch to another resort for the second week, but we have a few guests staying both weeks so it'd be nice to hang out with them. What travel agent are you using? We have a lady in St. Albert who was actually the one to suggest this resort! Can't wait to plan together too!!

 

@@barnet202 I believe it was $1,700 for the sky terrace ceremony. We're coming from Canada and I think the packages are different for us. Our only option was that "free" package, except that it's not complimentary for us. :( So I'm not sure if the pricing will be different for the sky terrace as well. Hope that sorta helps!

@@McGee2Be we are using Tanya at Vision Farlie Travel in St. Albert! She has been great so far. She suggested our resort too LOL.

 

Have you sent your invites or Save the Dates out yet?? We sent out ours 2 weeks ago, but only have a few people booked so far. Still debating when to send the actual invites.... So not sure how big or small the wedding will turn out to be.

 

Any thoughts on the photographer you will use...?

Would love to hear brides experiences as we are travelling from the UK and have no idea what to expect there is only a small party of 10 of us going and im getting so stressed with planning

 

Would love TIPS _ CONS

 

I have booked my wedding at 4pm hoping it wont be too hot but have never been to mexico before.

 

I do not know what decor to do and might bring some from home if this is allowed ??

 

Has anyone had a reception on a boat as we want to get out or abit for our reception maybe higher a sunset cruise RECOMMENDATIONS ??

 

Its a bit of a nightmare because all private events charge for min 16 people and their is only 8 adults and 2 children of us. I was going to get one of the decor packages but it is for 23-26people and is unable to be discounted or changed around abit to accomdate a smaller party.

Hiya  Amy xx - Awwww we loved the sky wedding and nearly booked it and wish i did sometimes. We have gone for the beach at 4pm (hope its not to hot). I nearly did get a decor package but its not worth it as we are a small party.

 

I have found loads of alternatives though to theirs. I am just going to get the material there as i just cant be bothered to take it and get some here !! haha.

 

I nearly went for the rose petal isle but at $110 its not worth it when apps like Etsy ( ITS THE BEST) you can get 1000 silk rose petals for £10.

 

I really didnt like the tropical boquet you get free and am going to bring my own small silk bouquet from the UK as i can keep it forever. (really easy to make)

 

Thomson dont reall get involved - with the wedding they give you your co-ordinators details mine is Marta and she is really helpful.

 

If you go on www.weddingsbylomastravel.com that has all the memorable moments packages and other optional extras. I am hoping to get the WEBCAST so my family at home can still be apart of it.

 

I keep going through the private receptions - They at min have 16 guests we like the sound of the White Glove cocktail party and for 16ppl it is around $240. for a 2 hour reception.

 

Have u started planning yet ?? - Dress shopping was the worst for me as i wanted a low back dress but struggled to find any and randomly just went to Eastmidlands wedding dress outlet and found a beautiful one quite cheap which i should be able to bare with in the heat (although it has a high neck)

 

 

It is $250 for table decor alot of it is over priced expecially centrepieces ! and napkin rings!!.

 

I think we are just going to go for material is $100 per sheet and the large hanging flowers are $70 each but they are amazing!!

 

You can get bows for chairs at $4 each.

 

I have gone with caribe photo i think the 2 hour package as its not fair to my 3 year old. and you get the pictures at the resort a few days after the other approved photographer by the hotel sends them 6-8 weeks after x

 

Hope this helps xx

@@KendraS Our lady's name is Kari at Airline Ticket Center. How funny would that be if we had the same travel agent!

 

We sent save the dates out in January. Sounds crazy but we wanted everyone to have more than enough time to save $ and plan. And we decided to email the travel info / official wedding invite, which was a hard decision since invites are such a big part of traditional weddings!

 

We wanted everyone to get the info at the same time so they'd all have equal opportunity to get in on the spots we reserved. Also, since the price of stamps shot up to $1 and we'd have to send out travel packages too, making it even more expensive, we decided we'd spend the money on better wedding favors!

 

We're finding that people are taking there sweet time booking too haha, stressful for us but I guess it makes sense for guests trying to figure out days off and what not.

 

Haven't found a photographer yet but we're looking at PlayaWeddings. Such a hard choice!!

    • 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?
