That's all I had, I requested all white flowers and natural greens for the hanging flowers on the chuppah thing on the Sky Deck and white rose petals down the aisle and it was gorgeous. I think we have similar tastes :)

Also, the reception seating is best figured out on site. I struggled with this for weeks and Kiara even made me seating chart options to give me a better idea BUT she also told me I had to have square tables and when I got there, they told me they would be round tables... which I preferred anyways so it worked out for the best.

Again, no random twigs sticking out if I go with these and also less bright green filler, more garden green. And a gold ribbon tying them all together. :)

Very nice! Love the dress and color combo on your flowers

We will have over 15 rooms booked. Have any of you received discounts for travelers for booking so many rooms?

 

I know that if we book at least 15 rooms we stay for free, but I feel like a discount should be offered to our families?

 

Any insight would be helpful, I have nooooo idea what I am doing :)

 

Thx,

Lauren

Welcome! These girls are the best! We received 20% off our room rates by booking through our travel agent. If you look on the karisma website, you'll see the details of the "Bride & Groom Stay Free" deal

 

Also, Welcome Gemma!

Thanks! I don't know much about Olympus, but I did hear it is also a quality brand.

I'm not sure if the Zocalla location is still available for Private receptions but our WC pretty much said this was the option for outdoor/private/covered space for dancing etc.

Thanks for helping clarify that for me ladies! I think I'll wait and see if I feel that premium is worth the difference b/w the $950 Pearl Pckge and the "Free" Package (hardly free if you think of it that way hahaha).
Yes, you are right, it will all work out! I too am having our TA price out the difference between a Premium Suite versus the regular Suites to see if it is even worth downgrading to the "free" package. I will let you know when I hear back from her!

Oh it's called bighugelabs.com which is what I used to make my inspiration boards :)

Yeah AS/AB is technically in Puerto Morelos, I wish I would have known where to go while I was down there or had been adventurous enough to figure it out! I was at the swim up bar with FI at the time drinking a margarita and I said "Oh we have to get OOT bag stuff in town" and he was like... "right..." and I was like "yeah who am I kidding, I'm so not leaving this pool all day" LOL! So do it BEFORE you start drinking for the day, my advice :)
Thanks again for sending over those photos as well as for the bighugelabs sites. My FI enjoyed getting an idea of our options.
I will check out that site just as soon as I get some good sleep! ;-)

I would have written back to all of you who were kind enough to welcome me, but I'm not down with multi-quoting yet! Also my ticker is so small! Haha, oh well at least i figured out how to do it.

We are considering the beach as well! We just need to make sure the wind is still comfy for the elderly. Can scare off my Granny who is traveling all that way. ;-)
Thanks! I dug it up for gingerlover. The peacock seems to be a big theme amongst Etsy.com sellers for some reason.

Someone asked about maracas?!? I bought maracas for our wedding at Fiesta Party Supplies Fiesta Decorations | Amols' Fiesta Party Supplies. These maracas already say "mexico" on it and they are all slightly different size since it's handmade. We are putting them on the reception table. I have attached the picture here... the tag says "Instead of tapping on your glass, here is a system with Mexican Class. Stand and shake with all your might to see the groom kiss his bride tonight." I copied it from one of the brides here. I thought it was super cute. You can even get small donkeys and pinatas. My FI wasn't crazy about the donkeys or pinatas but it's sooo cute.

Click the image to open in full size.
Yeah, I was thinking about buying pashminas and laying them over the back seat of the reception chairs, but we shall see.

Thanks for sharing the maracas info! I will go and check them out! I was just trying to avoid bringing down too much stuff, but we just found out one of the GM's is traveling down on the same day as us....so I will talk him into carrying a bag for us if need be.

Thanks, I hope she will be interested! I will go scope out PM with FI before the wedding and see what we can make of it. I'm sure it will all be beautiful!

Plus their rates INCLUDE insurance, additional driver and 'get out of trouble' card (basically it's a card they give to tourists, so in case you get pulled over, the cop is suppose to just give you a warning and let you off the hook- but you do have to ask for the card!) I drive standard, and most of the cars seemed to be standards, so in case you need an automatic make sure to request it.

This actually makes me want to change my colors. So pretty!

Thanks again for my inspiration board! Loved it!

Check out Oriental Trading Company for maracas. They also have a fiesta section and a wedding section. I just purchased paper lanterns and parasols from here too. Cheapest I've found so far and great quality.
I too am missing Cecile!!! I am feeling spoiled because she was sooooo responsive. But I hope she si happier wherever she has gone because I'm sure that can become a stressful job. :-( I just hope Faye can pull her weight and dive in working!

Your colors are beautiful and you made a great choice! Royalty, my dear! ;-)

Anytime, Love! It was a fun labor of learning and love for all things wedding! ;-)

Keep meaning to check my reciepts, but we had guests, so I will try in the next couple of days.

No transport/taxis are at the resort. If you need one, you'll have to get the luggage men to call one for you. However there are usually a few parked just outside on the roadway. I think they sit there hoping for a call. From what we saw it usually took about 5-10 minutes. Not sure what the prices are though.
Thanks for sharing this info!

If that was my wedding I would have been a stress case. and you know what? THANK GOD I DID A DW!!! All the stress and stupid crap we encounter dealing with family and travel issues, Miami coordinators, Lomas, then going through the hotel staff - yes I know its hard - but my wedding in Mexico was stress free and carefree and awesome. Saturday solidified my destination wedding choice that much more. I mean, 1/2 my guests would have missed my ceremony had we been having a traditional wedding on Saturday.

I only have a few pictures of the party - I'll do a review later once I get the better pix.
Picasa Web Albums - Amy - Stateside Rec...

The after party was a bit insane.... hehe
You ALL look like you had a GREAT time, which you deserved! FUN!

Congrats and Welcome!!! I second the other ladies motions about scouring this and the Karisma site regarding all promotions. Also, talk to a TA about what they can secure for you and take the webinar so that you can to qualify for a free room upgrade.

I, too, think the one without the branches will work better with your scheme. I can't see your dress since I'm at work (they block out everything!) but I wanna see it!! Lol. Everything else I've seen is very pretty. I chose Mori Lee for my BMs too and I love those suits. Good taste!

welcome3.gifLauren! Getting a travel agent should be the 1st thing on your agenda if you're looking for great rates for your guests. If you find the right TA it will definitely make this experience more manageable and he/she can give you insight on promotions and deals that can benefit you as well as your guests. I recommend you still do your homework tho and the ladies here usually post when they hear of a deal. I've saved about $1500 so far.

welcome.gif Gemma! Definitely go back and read. It's amazing how much you didn't think you wanted/needed to know about the resort and the process until you read. If you're like me, you'll try shortcuts but I honestly read from page 400 on and I highly recommend it.

Have you heard anything from Faye? I got an email from Fabio Thursday but still haven't heard from Carolina...and I'm starting to freak out. I chose to procrastinate on dealing with the stuff at the resort but now that I'm ready to make decisions I have had no contact with anyone to actually make plans for a month!! Kinda frustrating!!

I keep asking this question, but I don't think anyone has answered me yet. How do you hear about the webinars? Is that info from your TA or the website?

Hey ladies

just wondering if any of you used the onsite makeup and hair staff for there wedding day and what you thought of them?

Did you take pictures? Did they come to your room? Did you have a run through before the wedding?

Sorry for so many questions but can't seem to find anyone that has used the hotel.

Thanks

Gemma

Also, make sure you are looking into all the packages available. I have 32+ rooms booked and we qualified for a lower group rate, the bride and groom stay free promotion, 20% off private events and a free cocktail reception for 50 guests.

Take my advice and look into every promotion the other girls on this thread mention getting. That's what I did and now I have saved myself well over 3k.

In addtion to all the incentives, I also talked the resort in letting me downgrade to the free wedding package even though I am getting married on the sky deck. (I do have to pay the $1700 for the location though). Originally when I booked the lowest category avialble if booking the sky deck was the silver package but other girls mentioned that they qualified for the free wedding package. I asked and they gave it to me.
Hi Im also using the sky deck as well and have about 30 rooms booked....how were did you qualify for the free wedding we are still paying for the pearl package and the sky deck package...and also you with the sky deck you dont have to pay for the chairs correct? otherwise what exactly am i paying 1700 bucks for

Thanks you :) My friend is a jewelry designer and she designed everyone's cuffs and earrings for me. She printed out their dresses (and mine) and had them mounted on a black board. Then she sketched her designs and had some ribbon, and some pieces of stones and the metal pieces so she could show me her vision. I ok'ed it all and she made it and delivered it to me the weekend before we left. I felt famous and my friends loved it all. I wear the earrings she made for me all the time.

She is getting her website and facebook fan page up and running in the next month so I'll send you the link when its done.

I just love how she knew what I wanted my wedding to be and made jewelry to fit it!

They are also wearing matching vests and sage green ties

Here are the bridesmaids dresses:

They will be in sage green incase that didnt show up

I am going to have 6 of these bouquets tied to chivalir chairs with gold bows. They will line the aisles as well:

I want to have dried lilac running the aisles

I was originally going to do all white and green flowers but now think that there needs to be some more color. What do you think?

To go along with the ones I've shown you, which do you think would work best given my adversion to too much color and wanting everything to feel antiquey and romantic?

Here's one option. I would change a couple of thinsg...no branches out of the top and a gold ribbon. Also more garden green filler instead of bright green.

Let me know what you think.Thanks for the input ladies!

Again, no random twigs sticking out if I go with these and also less bright green filler, more garden green. And a gold ribbon tying them all together. :)
I love the gold ribbon! Everything is going to be gorgeous Amanda. I love your theme/feel of your wedding. Its going to be so romantic... Kind of like a MidSummer Nights Dream kind of feel. My sister had a wedding like that and it was amazing. Just thinking about it makes me feel all warm and lovey.

I like the Wedding wire bouquet best. I think just a small hint of purple here and there as an accent will really bring out the green you have chosen. And honestly I don't think green and white needs much accent.

Are you going to do seating cards (I forget their formal name)? I think gold calligraphy hand written names would look really nice and go with your theme.

Bigbop - I spoke with my TA about the upgrade to premium.  Looks like it will cost us about 1100 or 1150 to upgrade to the premium level.  Given that we would then "save" the $950 to downgrade to the Free Sweet Wedding Package, I think we'll probably go for it.  Other than losing the bridal bouquet it seems to me like you get more with the Free Package and for just a little more we're getting the significant upgrade in accommodations.   Hopefully your TA will have similar news for you.

 

#2.  I lied about my pic - it's back up on here now.

 

#3.  It won't let me delete the photo out of the quote (sorry, it's there for no reason and not related to my response to Bigbop).

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)
    • Planning to get married? Let’s discover some great wedding venues in Bangalore.

    • 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?
