I am so sorry to hear about your experince with DW.com. I have a great experience with DW.com and my TA is super awesome. We really didn't have too much crazy stuff for her to save the day but she's been always very responsive and take care all the requests very timely manner. She did get us the free wedding package even though we didn't book the premium suite.

 

I hope you get what you are looking for. It's not too late to change your TA if you are unsatisfied.

Soo frustrated right now, and really not able to enjoy planning this wedding.  smile41.gif



I LOVE your pictures! thanks for sharing. I am so excited about the honeymoon breakfast :) Looks delicious!

 

I am having a beach reception and plan to have dance floor. I am just wondering if the dance floor is necessary. I do like the idea of it but it's $250. Other places don't require dance floor but i thought the beach reception would... any suggestions?

Well I was trying to reply to mshannon and her pics!  Oh forgive me I'm obviously still in noob status for a reason lol!  Has anyone else been happy with the Caribe photographers?  bringing a photographer with us is not an option so i am hoping for the best with Caribe.

 While I am here I also wanted to ask about staying a second week.  Our guests are staying April 20-27 and our wedding is April 25, but we want to stay an additional week for our honeymoon after our guests leave.  I have been waiting several weeks for the supplier to give me prices.  My TA (who is from destinationweddings.com btw, and who I think has been fantastic) has been in communication with me the whole time, he was waiting on their quotes.  So long story short, I asked for what it will cost to stay an extra week at AS and also for quotes at what the cost would be to stay at the adult only ElDorado.  I am hoping there was a miscommunication (I also asked about premium room prices to see if we could qualify for the free wedding so maybe TA got confused about what I wanted?) so I am hoping the quotes only reflect the premium prices, but he quoted me 3300 pp to stay an extra week at ElDorado.  I am hoping this is a big misunderstanding, bc there is no way we can afford 3300 pp to stay an extra week.  I am just fine with staying at AS for another week if it is a reasonable price, 3300 is crazy, we are only paying 1540 pp for AS for the week in the first place, how much more can it cost for an extra week, the flight is already paid for in the first week price.  Maybe I am wrong, I am very confused!!  I just wrote my TA to clarify the situation and find out what affordable options we have.  Sorry for the long post, but need to vent and don't feel my family will understand if I tried to explain lol!  Also my FI will probably have a heart attack if I tell him the quotes I just got lol.  well, let me know if you ladies have any advice, thank you!

Number one that is crazy because I am having my bachlorette in the Spring in Philly as well and we both live in Houston and getting married at the same resort. Weird!

 

Second, I heard from Meredith. They had a family emergency and she isn't able to come to Houston this weekend. She TXT me on Tues.

We haven't picked our wedding package yet, but my TA is a GI wedding consultant.  Is he going to let me in on this after we pick our wedding package?  Or am I gonna miss out on this b/c I'm Canadian.  Why do I have a feeling I won't be getting this?  Oh Well, it's worth a try!

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
