I heard from Faye and she said for sure we will know tomorrow!!!!
I also asked my TA to sort this out for me. She told me she got us the Free Sweet wedding package :) My TA is AWESOME!

My FI is pretty lay back. I always run things by him before making any decisions. He likes to be involved but that doesn't mean he gets to make any decisions fencing.gif I ask for his opinions but ultimate I make the call. hehe. He learned that this is just how it's going to work till the wedding plan is done.

That sounds so much fun. We have to think of something to entertain everyone... Ah. too much stuff to do.

Not much.. besides flowers and frame i also didn't see much of difference. if you can get the free wedding package, go for it and add on stuff that you want. use your TA to negotiate that stuff.

LUCKY :) I love the fact that he wants to be involved....but...sometimes I just want to be able to say..nope...can;t do that...has to be this way...
Then he'll ask why...and I can only say Just Because that's how it is....
He feels I'm being controlling...
Just venting :)

Cool profession! Nurses are valuable assets to the world! Seems like moreso that Doctors sometimes. :-) We are also going to shoot for the beach reception, but I haven't been able to see any photos yet and I have alot of curiosities about how it would all play out. And thanks for the kind words, it will/shall all work out. Oh and last thing, lime green it is!!! :-)


Geez, at the expense of cheering Maggie up, you all are starting to make me feel bad about the Memorial Day weekend. Hurricane talk, cheaper flights, better prices.....Debbie Downer here. LOL
Bop, would LOVE to take courses in photography and graphic design... But for now I'm trying to get enough motivation to start my Masters

I appreciate your view on Nursing! I am really proud of my profession, although a lot of times I wish I had a more flexible/artistic sort of job! I'm pretty sure I saw a few pictures of a beach reception at AS somewhere. If I find them, I'll definitely let you know!

We're looking at the new wedding packages. We had the Pearl Package, but now are considering between the New Pearl and the Free Sweet Wedding Package. Seems to me the Free package includes MORE than the paid for pearl package. It has the amenities of the Honeymoon package too. BUT.... I don't understand what the requirements are to qualify for it. Specifically it says:
"Valid in Canada, USA and reservations booked at published rates only" Does this mean you have to book DIRECTLY through AS? I'm going to have my TA follow up too if need be as well to see if I qualify.

If not, I guess we stick with Pearl. The other thing is that they don't clearly specify on either package how many chairs are provided. The Pearl package only says "maximum group capacity and restaurant restrictions ...AZS - 40 people - Spoon Restaurant"
Does this mean that maximum 40 chairs are included? That ROXX if I'm correct. Wasn't it like 12 before?

Okay, sorry so long. Any insight is appreciated. Again, I'm going to find out from Carolina as well, so if anyone is curious to have official answers I'll pass them on
I have Carolina too, I'll let you know if I get any more info

Ladies I need some advice!

 

I had contacted Del Sol about to be our Photographers, but just received an email that they do not accept bookings at Karisma Hotels. I'm super disappointed... Anyone have any photographer recs with a similar style? More photojournalistic I guess, rather than the more traditional approach? TIA

Have fun in Baltimore! I am going to MD to see my parents and Philly to see my friends (bachelorette/bridal shower) on the labor day weekend. I am so excited! I miss home. This hot weather hasn't been helping...

I should clarify that mine are in the spring! HA LOL

If any ladies need ideas for Bachlorettes, not to toot my own horn but I love planning them and throwing them and I have been in 15 weddings and I always take the lead on the Bachlorette. (The downside to being an promotion and event planner in radio) I have done different themes, etc so if you BM or yourself get planners block let me know I can spit out some ideas! I think I just like to plan theme parties and I use bachlorettes as my excuse.

My FI is in charge of the guys' attire and gifts, the menu for the reception, obtaining our marriage license and setting up our legal ceremony. On everything else I think a lot of us have the same method....narrow down and then make them feel useful.

Whenever I did ask his opinion he would say "what do you think" and that starts an argument because I say if I wanted to decide I wouldn't have asked you. So I've learned to just run things by him and say this is what we're doing and he says ok. He's very visual so nothing is really real to him until he sees it.
OMG!! I feel your pain. If I heard him say one more time, "It's just too much for me to process right now" or "my head hurts, can we talk about this later" or the best one "we have time, I'll go full speed in Aug" I think I would've slit my wrists pokestick.gif I had to have a few tantrums and start picking overly expensive stuff to get him on board with planning. When I told him I was gonna order $9 wedding invites his headache went away quick! girl_werewolf.gif

I'm going with Andrew Jordan if you want someone from the US. Check out his website Cleveland Wedding Photographer-Andrew Jordan Photography and Wendy's pics. He's also a vendor here "groomsarepeopletoo." He's really easy to work with so far and willing to work with your budget. Also you may want to look at some of the other photogs that brides have used recently because they all should already have a relationship with the resort and already be approved.

One of the things I'd like to change down the road is to become a bit more specialized actually. Your FI? What's he do?



Me TOO!! All this Le Blanc talk has made me put it on the list for my TA to try and figure out pricing for us for our "honeymoon" (right after the wedding, heading to another hotel). So far it's really between Le Blanc and Royal Hideaway Playacar. But I'm no where NEAR ready to make a decision on it. ... not til more of the wedding stuff is done I don't think.
Fi is a trial attorney...he does plaintiff's work...he basically sues medical/pharmaceutical companies! haha That may be a conflict of interest since I work for Johnson and Johnson?!?!? He works his ass off, but he loves it!!!!!

OHHHH I vote for Le Blanc! I will give you a full report when I return!

SO freakin†excited for you it gives me chills!

You can eat for free at ANY of the Palace resorts with your wristband, cool feature but once you go to Le Blanc, you wonâ€t want to go anywhere else.

Itâ€s VERY anti-spring break… when you walk in it feels like youâ€re in a giant spa. The music is sooo calming and the vibe is super chill.

Lindz, check out the giant iguanas at the giant chess board & giant Jenga, D and I played both and had a blast, especially with the fearless iguanas at our feet!

I would say AS one upâ€s Le Blanc ONLY in the fact of the swim-up suites with large patios. You just canâ€t beat them, they are unbelievable and my favorite feature of the hotel. LeBlanc has a 6inch balcony maybe, itâ€s pretty much nothing. We got the Honeymoon Suite on the 8th floor that came with a 24 hour butler. The suite is nice, smaller than AS standard suite but nicer in the fact that the Jacuzzi is better, there is a fridge with booze and snacks and better tv channels than AS, not like that matters 



Iâ€ve always wanted to see that in action in person, what a rad job!
Seriously, I have only been gone a day and half and have a million posts to go through!! haha You girls are great!

I am getting chills thinking about it too!!! Ahh, we are so excited!!! Thank you for being so excited for us! haha And thanks for the recommendations!

Long story short - I had reserved thru Cecila May 30th for my date but not put down the $200. My TA and FMIL were going back and forth between 2 resorts AS and The Royal Cancun. Unfortunately when you accept other people's $$ towards paying for the wedding you have to play nice and my FMIL being a former TA wanted to make sure we got the best deal. (She really did get us an awesome rate). Well for one reason or another that I do not know nor care at this point. All the dates for Memorial Day Weekend and the weekend before are now booked for AS. I lost the 30th. Cecila is gone. This all went down this morning. I had a minor freakout (possibly due to the fact that I am control freak and felt like things were out of control). After calming down, talking to the FI, Talking to my mom, talking FMIL I have a new WC (Faye) New wedding date (May 15th 2011) and feel back to normal. I really wanted May 30th but oh well. This morning was basically throw money at the 15th and see if it sticks. I will know for 100% sure in 24 hours. My FMIL and TA got Fabio on a call and basically got it done. AS was really understanding of my problem but booked is booked. It's our own fault for not putting the $200 down in the first place.
WHEW - Thanks! I just had to get it all out and type it to feel better.
NOTE: Ladies of Memorial Day weekend 2011 - I am sad we won't get to do that shot together. Also a word of warning. According to Fabio and Faye Thursday May 26th - Mon May 30th are BOOKED Solid with brides. They also said that there were some big groups. I would make sure your TA's and guest know that resort is going to be full that weekend and it's probably a good idea for guests to book ASAP. Again I am hearing this 3rd hand from my TA but might be something to be aware of.

Is Anyone else getting married on the weekend of May 13 - 15 2011?

Thanks for letting me get that all out. Good news I am offically (in 24hours when they email me confirmation) A Paying AS BRIDE!!!! YEAH! I am so excited!
Well, sorry you had to go through that stress. Those days are the WORST! You think you have everything heading in the right direction and you find out one thing that throws it all out of whack. BUT good news is that you got it worked out and have a fabulous new wedding date!!! YAY!!

Ok, let's talk about FI's "roles" in the planning process. He has been on opposite ends of the spectrum. Either SUPER AMAZING or SUPER TERRIBLE! haha He has helped me with a ton of stuff. For example, when I was doing the invitations, he stayed up for HOURS with me helping me construct the invites, stuff them, and stamp the envelopes. He has also said "do NOT worry about a guest book (I was going to do a polaroid camera and have people take pic of themselves and write a little note on the white part...I will just do this for the Thursday night party on the beach) for the wedding. He says he is working on something super awesome for us. HMMMMM. I am kind of nervous...with my type A personality, I have not delegated ANYTHING! haha And have been such a micromanager through this process, so I hope he comes up with something cute! So, we will see what he comes up with. He is also helping his mom with the rehearsal dinner and planning our entire Vegas trip. He obviously had a big decision in the resort and is doing a lot with the menus for the weekend. He did several other little things here and there. Ok, so now for the bad part...stuff he doesn't care about, he DOES NOT CARE ABOUT! haha Like OOT bags...he thinks they are a waste of money. SO whenever I mention something I bought for them, he argues with me and says it's stupid. SO ANNOYING! So my advice to you...pick your battles and only involve him in things you think he will take interest in. It is SO weird with FI's...They could careless about a lot of the wedding, BUT when they find something they want to do, they will be ALL about it! It's best just to let them have their moment. wink.gif

    • 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!
