Planning was somewhat hectic in the beginning. It took almost a month (this was back in Feb, 200cool.gif to hear back from the resort re: when they were going to start doing weddings. After finally receiving that good news things began to take shape. We are using Destinationweddings.com and they are fantastic. I highly rec. them, esp. Joani Traver. She has been planning my wedding and has been really great about communication with me.

 

 

 

Hi Amy,

 

I checkout that site and they advertise the 3 day trip for guests a lot. Are you doing this at all? I know if I could offer the trip for 1000 or less for 3-4 days, then more people could definitely go! Also, do you know if they handle weddingmoons, or just eloping to a resort but still wanting a ceremony there for just you two?

 

Thanks!

Hi JHarwood2Be:

No I haven't set up an appointment with anyone yet. We booked our trip and then became very intersted in Azul Sensatori and now realize that it is very close to the opening. Now we wished we had booked it later, but hopefully someone will be able to meet with us. I filled out an application and am also going to call tomorrow to try to get someone so that I can set up an appointment. I have emailed, but don't know if I am emailing the right person. Does anyone have a good email address or phone number to set up an appointment for the site visit?

 

I am also looking at Eurostar Blue Tulum and Ana y Jose Beach club. Both of those are farther away from the airport, so that's a con for those two. Can't wait to go visit and see the places.

Fabio is our offsite Co. and it usually takes him some time to get back to me but I did just receive our exel worksheet breaking everything down by cost and time so I have a better idea of how the day will flow. We meet the onsite co. on 8/13 in the am. I will also be having all of my hair and makeup trails done that day.

I would be happy to email you our wedding timeline that I sent Fabio if it helps answer some questions for you.

Hi Amy,

Would you mind sending me the timeline/spreadsheet? trayce2222@yahoo.com On the spreadsheet, is that where you got to pick all of your extras? I have my list made out, but if you have it all in a spreadsheet that would be so helpful! I am also booking everything through destinationweddings.com and I am so glad we are using them. Another friend of mine used them and they just got married at the RIU Palace RIviera Maya.
Please let me know how you like the hair and make-up! Thanks so much!!cheesy.gif

Wow there are so many of us now so please make sure to update the list that Jenny started.

 

TA Jennifer just became certified as a Karisma Resort specialist. I asked that she visit our thread and help answer our questions.

 

For those of you who have not secured a TA, she's got a great offer. (I requested that she post that offer here as well).

 

In the meantime...

I only know that the company out of Toronto called "The Wedding Holiday" is offering a trip to potential brides for $299 (to be refunded if you book with them) + taxes (around $300). Don't know when....

    • 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. 
    • 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.
