That's sounds better, I'm kind of worried about that, they need to be more specific on their site. I've been emailing w/ Claudia directly. And have we figured out that she is actually including the $500 in her price quotes to all of us??

Good to know, but I would still try to get him to finalize some things with you.


I ordered my gown yesterday! I went with the Maggie Sottero because it seemed more beachy and they have petite sizes. I would have had to alter the other one drastically. Let's hope it gets here before my wedding date!

Oh, and I'm glad Tiffany is quick w/ the replies. Thanks to you'all that have been posting the info from her! And that's funny that Fabio has maybe been checking out little chats. I wonder if he's referring to the email that TA Jennifer sent out to Faith?

They said that we can't have music at the garden rooftop so that is a definate NO because we have to have music. Has anyone heard of other options for the reception. I am thinking of changing to a full sit down dinner as this is getting way more complicated than I expected. Ideashuh.gif
not an awful lot to choose from ! frown.gif

If anyone has booked with Claudia pictures or her husband for videography directly you should forward Fabio or Tiffany the price list that she or Mike gave you so he can make sure that they are the same prices that Lomas charges and he should tell you in an email that there will not be an outside broker fee. I did that and he said that we can use them and not have to pay an outside broker fee.

This is great thanks for everyone posting ideas, on this resort different questions with answers! My Fiancé and I are getting married at this resort 4/24/09 we are super excited. Our ceremony is for 5 pm.

So excited. This site is great I have gotten great ideas, and questions answered with all of your help! thanks, the pics from people who have had their weddings already are amazing. From what I was told depending on the package you pick is how your photographer is chosen.

We are having a private event, because we want a DJ so we can dance we are expecting about 30-50 people coming to our wedding.

Some of the things that alarm me is that you have to buy the guest passes in advance for those who are staying at other properties to me we won't know that info until it gets closer to the date.

 

thanks any suggestions or comments please feel free to contact me

This is how she responded to me....it is soooo frustrating trying to find the perfect place. I love the rooftop idea!!!! I don't think people will dance out in the middle of the resorthuh.gif

Hi Ali,
Thank you for your email. Unfortunatly we cannot reserve an area till 90 days prior to your wedding date. Remind me in February that you would like this to be reserved for you. Please keep in mind that you can have a maximum of 60 people for this location and it is for a cocktail party only. There will be 6 high tables and unfortunately there can be no music. If you have any other questions please let me know

Hi Polina,

Could you please ask the onsite coordinators what is the best way to ship things to the resort from the US? I am bringing my centerpieces and they are very big, tall glass vases. It will just be too hard for us trying to get them there. You may ask how far in advance we should ship them, if we should put ATTN: to (one of them), should we put our names somewhere on the boxes so they know who they belong to, etc....

I sure do appreciate it!

P.S. If there are any other brides who will be there the same time as us (we will be there 4/29-5/7) and would like to use our centerpieces, let me know. You are more than welcome....let me know and I can send or post pics of what they will look like.
Thanks,
Tracy

I'm getting a little annoyed about the inflexibility there seems to be with things surrounding the dinner/cocktail party/reception...is anyone else? Our wedding was booked for 4pm in November, but I tried to switch it to 3pm in order to have enough time for pics before the sun starts to go down. Since I wasn't able to switch it to 3pm (JP booked for a year out already!), I asked if I could have a short ceremony at 4pm, then an hour for a cocktail party before sitting down for dinner...but they are not able to adjust any of the times/prices for the cocktail parties so it is basically 2 hours or nothing! If the wedding was at 3pm, 2 hours would work out perfect before dinner, but with a 4pm wedding, if I start the dinner at 630-ish, that only really leaves us with about 2 1/2-3 hours for dancing! And I'd like to also know why if you have your reception on the beach they couldn't extend the time out to midnight. If anyone else has these frustrations, or has addressed them with the WC before, I'd love to hear from you! I don't plan on getting down to serious planning business with Tiffany until next July/August, but maybe in the meantime if there are enough of us requesting some flexibility we can band together and get it done!

One of the suggestions that was made to me by my TA was to rent a bus and take our guests to Cancun club. The only problem is fitting 60-70 guests and how much that would cost... It's about 33$ US pp. smile41.gif

    • 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)

    • 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?
