27 dresses - i feel awful for you, but you have to do what's right for you! Good luck!

 

Heather - I'm glad you posted. I was starting to feel like a whiner with all of my complaining, but seriously I agree, everything is so much money. Maybe if they charged REASONABLE amounts for extra's I wouldn't care so much but I still can't get over the freakin $100 for a plain sheet LMAO!!! I thought maybe it was all the resorts that charge that much..... Oh well. At this point its too late for me to look back, and I don't regret my decision to get married at the Sensatori but I do wish I would have known how crazy all of these prices were.

On a more positive note - I truly feel like even though I'm skimping out on pretty much all of the extra options, my wedding will still be amazing!

27 dresses, that's so sad and must have been such a hard decision to make but I totally understand why you reached the decision you did.

 

we purposefully chose a destination wedding as the cheaper option to getting married in the UK - now its not looking quite so obvious.

 

good luck with whatever you decide to do...sounds like Cuba's a great option!!!

27 dresses---you should ask Karisma for a $3000 credit towards a stay there or better yet at El Dorado Maroma which would be great for a honeymoon.

 

Good luck with whatever you work out!

Nikki, I'm with you...it's way too late to do anything about it now, but I also don't regret my decision. At the end of the day, I know if I wanted I could go out there, pay for next to nothing and just get married and be just as happy. although the prices are ridiculous, and yes, i moan as much as the next time, its still a decision we make to have the extras or not.

my wedding will be amazing because I will be there surrounded by my family and those closest to me, and promising myself to my soulmate for the rest of my life. nothing could be more perfect.

Also, they do get a welcome cocktail as they are seated which should hold people for at least an hour. Also if we have music going for them it should be fine. I'm not paying for a cocktail hour and horderves at ANOTHER location.

I'm having my private dinner @ Zocollo Terrace because it's large, enclosed with a bar, room to dance and you can pull the shades if it gets cold, windy or rainy. I believe the minimum is 40 guests though.

For my 40 person meal at Spoon, I already booked it. I figured I might as well since I know I wanted a Sunday farewell brunch for my guests and I got a confirmation from Kiara, my WC.
yeah i think we'll get one of the guests to tell people what's going on after we've walked back down the asile.

see, i don't get that - Tiffany gave me the option of all the reception areas but she knows our party size so why suggest it?? that's what annoys me.

ah well...I've got ages to go and already I just want to get there!!

wedding dress shopping on Saturday!! wahoooooo!!!!!! lol

I am not sure if I should be happy or throw up...I just checked on the room rates because I have a guest who wants to stay an extra week. I thought I would check Karisma's website for yucks! Their room rates are almost $150 less a night than what I was given from my coordinator at Karisma, with my group discount.

 

WTFhuh.gif I can't wait to see what they come back and tell me next.

We need to talk to some past Sky Deck brides!
KittenHeart,

Did your contact at the resort say anything about having over 40 people for your Spoon restaurant dinner? I noticed it says 46 booked on your signature. I think we will have closer to 50 and I am hoping they will still let us use that. Otherwise, we lose the whole thing!! How ridiculous is that?

I asked Tiffany what happens if we have more than 40 people and she told me it is $25 for each additional person. If there is more than 50 people,she will have to request special permission from the resort. I am sure they will work something out for you.

    • 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?  
    • 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!
