Lol! @@kmk2016

 

I totally hear you... It was honestly a last minute decision. I just kept thinking about how beautiful the ceremony pictures would look (which was most important to me) so I decided to splurge on the package. However, I brought the majority of my reception decorations down with me (chair sashes, paper lanterns, string lights, etc.)

which helped me justify spending the money a little bit! Lol

 

Oh, and @@CharBec - I found these professional pictures too which show the entire setup! Obviously, the sun was setting in these pictures so the colors are still appearing a bit darker but in the sunlight they are much more sheer.

Wow @@JMK923 thanks for posting your beautiful wedding photos. I have also opted for the Pure Glamour package and was searching for some 'real' wedding photos in the hope the package is all it promises to be! Your post has settled my nerves, they are incredible!

We are actually thinking of using luggage tags as our escort cards so that they will double as wedding favours. So we really appreciate the info about where you got yours, they are really nice.

We're doing OoT bags too.

 

The maracas will be so fun!

It's Canadian Thanksgiving, so best wishes to everyone here regardless of if you are eating turkey today.

I just joined the topic and just started the planning process.

Read through a couple I post and already have found helpful info I did not think about. Such as bringing decorations down there and decorating for the welcome cocktail party.

I am thinking about having my ceremony on the Sky Deck and wanted to find out if anybody has had or I booked for it in the future? I am worries about the heat factor..

Carrie

Hi Carrie

I have also booked the skydeck-and would imagine as long as you avoid the strong midday sun you will be fine! Our wedding is 3pm, looking at videos posted it does look breezy up there aswell.

We also have s shade lounge up there as part of our package which is an option, it only seats 8 but stands more, depends how large your wedding is. Ours is only small with 14 guests.

Hi @@rebepax

Love your luggage tags also!

 

I've aswell looked at maracas as wedding favors, think they are a great idea! Did you source these yourself, and have any photos/links etc. I've seen there are some available through the WCs but I'd like different colors , and poss engravings?!

@@Beckyhoulton your wedding is going to be beautiful!

Thank you-feels like an eternity booking it, but now only weeks away its a bit more real!

I read on another thread that brides were having their check in wedding favors confiscated at the airport. anyone have that problem? I'm bringing tumblers and welcome bags and need to check them in because there's no way i can bring them all on as carry on

I read that too- and that's the first case of this I have ever read about in the thousands of posts about bringing items in... I'm not deterred. We don't know the entire scenario and it very well could have been that her bags/boxes appeared suspicious for other reasons and her boxes were gone through and items confiscated and destroyed for reasons totally unrelated to wedding favors. There is noting wrong with bringing items in that you don't plan on selling- and customs wouldn't just take them for no reason. (It was one instance relayed by a friend of someone it happened too, it didn't appear to be a pattern)

 

Not worried and still planning on packing them in checked luggage.

did any past brides who had photographers fly in from their hometown have any problems? if yes any details on what the problems the photographers encountered?

I'm planning to bring a lot of stuff for my wedding, and I'll bring receipts for anything possible. I think if you have a receipt and you aren't leaving anything in Mexico it should be ok.

Wedding this past Sat was PERFECT!!!!!! I brought 4 huge suitcases of decorations for both the ceremony and reception. The coordinators took the decorations, jotted down directions and I left. I was a NERVOUS wreck!!!!!

 

Wedding day came!!! My dress was steamed and delivered to my room. It was beautiful!!!! The ceremony decor was EXACTLY how I had envisioned!!!! They NAILED IT!!! The reception decor was PERFECT!!! They did an amazingggggggg job!!!

 

I had 70 guests and there wasn't a dry eye on the beach!!! I even had about 25 onlookers to stand at the glass railing and watch the entire ceremony.

 

The resort, weather, service, spa, staff..... It was all TOO PERFECT!!!!!

Customs did check my bags!! Saw that they were full of decorations and didn't unwrap things. They just asked what items were. They probably see these things all day. They were very swift and did not rearrange the bags or unpack them.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
