I will! Just remind me right before I go :) I have like 30 different sized natural colored paper lanterns & 7 strands of white frosted string lights I'm bringing that I would hate to go to waste. They may charge you to set it up but at least you didn't have to bring it!

That's terrible! I'd resend her the email she sent you that says $50 per sheet and demand she stick to her original quote. Doing that in the sales world is a big no no.

I'm not sleeping great either sad.gif me and FI have been at each others throats over the weekend and whilst things are generally ok, I think the stress of the wedding is getting to us both....wondered if maybe a common thing this close to the wedding?

 

FI is mega, mega stressed about money so that doesn't help.

 

The wedding seems to have lost all feeling and emotion and like it's just one big stress! I know it's just right now it feels like that, and it will get better, but as the time gets closer and money gets tighter and tighter, this is becoming less fun sad.gif

 

Sorry to moan....I know you guys will/can cheer me up! QUOTE]

 

Katie I'm going through the EXACT same thing as you. The stress is getting to me and FI as well adn the fights are a little more frequent and intense and always about something dumb.

 

People keep telling me, "You must be SO excited!" and my reply typically is... not quite yet, no. :) Seriously, I'm not having fun anymore, I broke down in tears last week after a frustrating attempt to write our ceremony crying "I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS WEDDING STUFF ANYMORE!!" That made him laugh at least...

 

At least most of you didn't wakeup to an earthquake to the new 4am (still feels like 3am) this morning and then layed awake in bed until my alarm went off at 5am.

I actually brought all my own sand ceremony stuff and didn't get charged anything for them speaking.

I brought my own sand, and glass containers. They spoke about a sand ceremony, it was actually like 2 sentences. And I was charged nothing. There was a $45 charge on my invoice for sand ceremony, but it got refunded to me . They told me it was a charge if they provide you with sand lol. And since I brought my own, I got my money back :)

I did however buy some pashmina's from another BDW bride. It actually feels like I accomplished something... even if it wasn't on my list. Every little bit counts!
Hey Crista Lee :)
Buying pasminas was the best thing I did! I actually bought them in bulk. I went in on a bride group order from this website and got them for $3 each!!! I got one for every woman that was attending my wedding in mexico. And I ended up having them tied around my beach chairs(for colored bows) so It doubled as a favor and bows! I got 3 different colors, pink, silver and charcol gray.Then the guest were directed to take one when It was over. Worked out fantastic! It gets cold at night there and the guest kept coming up to me saying what an awesome idea that was!

I am so livid - they are trying to blame it all on Francisco who is no longer the WC at the hotel. We went on a site visit and they are trying to say that becuase he didn't leave any notes in "our file", etc. that we cannot have this space - um, no. I am livid. My TA is trying to work this out, but I may need to do it myself.

Azul Beach brides - do any of you have a print out of the reception options before they recently changed them? Since I didn't think they would screw with me, I never thought to print out the options that were available back in November! I am supposed to get married in 6 weeks - yes, 36 days. are you freaking kidding me?!

The reception options were Blue - inside and out - Wave Lounge - and I think Chill was one of the options, as well as the Beach.

How many guests are you having? The outdoor restaurant by Chill is supposed to be super nice where Bree had her wedding.

Did you ever have your locations in writing from Karisma?

The supervisor is Fabio. Call the wedding department and ask for him. I don't have his contact details. Sorry.

Thanks! We selected Chill (where Bree had her wedding), in part, because we heard about Bree's wedding when we were there for a site visit (which was totally random!) and it was a smaller, private area. They are now saying that they cannot close the restaurant for us (and it's a Tuesday night). I made sure that I got everything in writing with them, but I never realized that I did not get the options for the private event from them - and it never occurred to me to ask. The sheet from Tiffany listing it as our venue apparently wasn't a "confirmation" in their eyes. Hopefully I'll be able to get it all straightened out, but it's pretty ridiculous.

I hope they don't try to do the same thing to you!

Hello Ladies!!!

 

I have returned a married woman!!! The wedding was fabulous.

 

All I can say to everyone is that the day goes by so fast and all of the details we worry about before don't even matter.

I didn't care that I didn't have programs, place settings or alot of decorations.

The whole day seems like a dream....I can't belive it's overfrown.gif

 

My groom was sooooo stressed out the few days before the wedding, it was very nice to be able to RELAX after all of the planning.

 

The resort is very beautiful, and the wedding ceremony was perfect. The weather was great and the site was beautiful. The ramp we walk down is a bit steep, one of my bm's almost wiped out.

I paid $150 for 2 pieces of colored fabric, the gazebo is ugly without it. Tiffany told me that up tp 4 pieces are available for $300. The on site girl (Elena) said only 2 pieces are available. Don't pay for more than 2 pieces!!!

 

The evening does get cold!!! tell everyone to pack a jacket. We had to relocate to the ballroom because it was so cold (guests were going to rooms to warm up) I wish I knew that I would have asked for the restaurant instead of the plaza

 

My photog was AMAZING!!!!!! He was very cool (helped carry one of our friends to his room our first night!!LOL)

I definatley recomend him! Jon Rennie check out his website.

Here are just a few of the shots

    • 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?
