    Hey girls,

     

    I'm a little upset this morning.  Put in for my group contract and it's $100 more per person for the week long rate.  :(  I don't understand how a TA with no discounts (someone in the party was checking rates) can get a rate only $50 more when Azul is supposedly giving us 20% off our rooms (through DW.com). 

     

    Hmm.... Should I fight to try and get the rate I was told or just let people decide to go a night less if they need to? 

     

    And, I'm not sure if anyone else had problems last night but I tried to post and it told me I didn't have permission to post here.  :(

      We got legally married three days before the Mexican wedding.  I had no interest in doing the blood test in Mexico and didn't want to have to wait to have everything translated.  And if we got legally married in Mexico we would've had to get there two days before we did which would've cost like another $1000 for 2 nights at the resort.  I really didn't expect anything special other than signing of papers but it was kind of emotional, however, it didnt take away from the day in Mexico.  I think if it's easier to do it here you probably should.

       

      Here's a pic from our legal ceremony.  The decorations in the room are awful.  LOL

      I"m still trying to decide whether or not to get married before we get to Mexico... I'm not sure I want to do the blood test and everything once we're there. Any advice?  Are you glad you got legally married before?  Not sure what to do 

      Thanks!

        Awww, I know how that feels girl. Can it be replicated for you by a seamstress? I actualy found a dress that wasn't available except in Chicago and it would be hundreds to ship it out just to try it on and contacted someone about making the dress for me and it was far cheaper.

         

         


        I talked to a shop that's a little over an hour from me..nicest, most helpful woman I have talked to...she said it's a brand new dress...so a lot of shops won't have it...she is willing to order it in October when she places her new orders...but she went through a bunch of styles she DOES have in her shop...I am definitely doing to go there and look...you could tell she really enjoyed what she did, as opposed to the people you call and all you get is "Sorry...don't carry it" CLICK

            Hi girls!!  So i definitely do more asking then giving input, but totally appreciate all the great ideas and information everyone has!! 

             

            We are definitely still trying to decide on legal vs symbolic ceremony too.  We are leaning more and more towards having legal ceremony here.  More because my FI is Canadian and the whole visa thing too, but it also just seems easier!!

             

            Those of you who are Canadian, what are the big travel companies to use for all inclusive travel (similar to funjet, etc)??  We have a ton of people coming from Canada and although we have a TA set up for them to use, I always like to do some searching on my own!!

             

            Lastly, we have been thinking about having an ongoing theme for our wedding, but are having a difficult time coming up with ideas.  We want things pretty formal and colors we are leaning towards are ivory, gold, and touches of raspberry/magenta.  I have seen how some people have had birds, seashells, starfish, etc and am interested in something like that, but maybe different.  We have considered orchids, but i have a feeling that is going to get very spendy very quick!!  Any ideas??  I know my question is very vague.....  Here are some inspiration boards below.  Leaning towards less raspberry.magenta than seen here, but you get the idea!!  Thanks!!

            Have you tried a general search online for how much the room rate is? Then if the price is cheaper than what your TA is offering, I would directly tell them a published rate is cheaper and they have to improve their price. Good luck.

            I don't know that I can offer much inspriation for your decor...I am not very creative. :(

             

            But for travel companies...online (just to make it easier for you) try:

            itravel2000.com

            holidaymarkettravel.com

            sunwing.ca

            signaturevacations.ca

            nolitours.com (french, but english button top right)

            aircanadavacations.ca

             

            Hope that helps :)

              First of all, I don't know if I've met you before, my name is Amy! :)

               

              I LOVE your color scheme and ideas. The gold and this fuschia/magenta deal is fantastic!

               

              I like the idea of orchids but you're right, that could get pricey. Another girl on here had a fushia orchid theme and it was simiply stunning!

               

              I don't know if this will make sense to you... but this was my first thought. I was thinking ok, you could pick a time period or taste that you like and have one of the colors be a focused theme but still keeping the other.

               

              For example, say you love vintage... books, frames, trinkets etc. Doesn't all have to be the same thing, but it's all vintage & gold. OR Art Deco, or modern... so everything if it's modern is sleek and has clean lines and it could be different items (not just birds or starfish etc)
               

              I'd have fuschia as your color... then I'd do the accent color in your theme or taste. Vintage gold picture frames as table numbers. Vintage gold trinket atop your cake... vintage looking placecards write in a gold metallic pen... gold chiavari chairs... gold jewlery for you and your girls, fushia dresses for them, fushia hair flower/feather/accessory etc.

               

              Just a suggestion off the top of my head!

                Hi All Im very new to the site and have been trawling through pages and pages of previous posts- all very inspiring!

                 

                I have a couple of questions that you may be able to help me with...

                 

                I booked my wedding 4 months ago through my local travel agent for June next year and have so far had no contact with the hotel or been told who will be my wedding planner is.  Can anyone tell me how long they waited to be sent any infomation regarding choices for the day? and how do I go about getting a wedding planner? does anyone have any names/numbers/email addresses for the hotel?

                 

                Any advice at this stage would be great as I would really like to start getting things organised and find out what choices i have for example flowers/colors/drinks/food etc

                 

                Thanks ladies xx

                    Wow!!  I sure am active on here today......

                     

                    Question.....  For all of the different promotions (ie bride and groom free, etc) are your TA booking all through the hotel or using different resources such as funjet, covacations, delta, etc??  I think my TA told me the hotel has a list so they know how many booked with your party and that I would get $ back after the fact.....more like a refund/rebate.  Thoughts???
