I could understand that the hotel would not want to get a bad reputation for someone else's mistakes... as to what really happened, who knows...
Wow, what your TA said is interesting. When I inquired about Del Sol's services here is what Matt Adcock from Del Sol wrote to me in an email:

"We have worked VERY hard over the last few years to develop a strong following and a presence in the Riviera Maya and when it came down to it, we spoke out publicly on the forums about Karisma and their ridiculous policies and how they were unfair to our clients. The word got to them that we said that their rates were the highest and frivolous and from that, they banned us. They tell their clients that we were banned due to "past unprofessional behavior"."

Two very different sides of the story. fencing.gif

That's the version that I remember. It's a shame too. There are many brides who don't book Karisma weddings once they find out they can't use Del Sol.

Hey ladies...have you heard of the new "It's all about the Bride" promo with Karisma?

 

Its All About the Bride, destination wedding promotion

 

Sorry if this has already been posted, but it could save some $$$ for some of you!

 

For all those Canadian brides booking through Signature Vacations, I was told by Karisma that we would have to contact Signature to see if they are honoring the promo, and so I called Sig and so far they know nothing about it, however I would get your TA to keep her eyes peeled as they may pick it up or something like it in the near future...

 

For all you US brides, if you are booking through someone other than Karisma directly, would you mind letting me know who that would be? I would like to compare some pricing...between the free wedding package and this promo, there's got to be a way to get a better deal! :) THANKS!

This website lets you look up sunset times by dates and locations:

Great song choices Jennifer! Are there 5 different ones needed for the whole ceremony? I'm planning on walking down the aisle to the "Over the Rainbow", I love that one!! I am from Kansas and I also own a Cairn Terrier (toto). ha. I'm cheesy.

 

That Jason Mraz song is fabulous too! Can't wait to see the rest of your pics, did I miss them?

 

P.S.- You said you were probably older than most of us...but you don't look it.

Thanks for posting, I saw this and was going to post too but then I totally forgot. I don't think I'll be able to use it sad.gif

I saw your gown! They didn't have that one at my boutique, but I tried on a strapless one in the same material. It's the perfect weight for Mexico! And very fashion forward :)

    • 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?
