Ahh great! I am so happy you replied. I was forced to buy my dress off the rack, as they said there is no way I would be able to get it on time.

 

We fly into Cancun on March 30 so I will be there a few days in advance. How many people are you expecting? What sort of plans have you made so far? Have you picked out a color scheme? Decorations? etc?

 

This might sound crazy, but would you be interested in teaming up for anything that could help save money? Perhaps decortations etc?

 

I am in the very early stages of planning still, and I would love to hear what your thoughts are.

The system charges your ipod while it is plugged in.  We brought our portable charger just in case though.  We also had our laptops so when we plugged it in it would charge.

So all we need to bring is our iPod and they will plug it into their sound system? There is no need to bring anything else? What about charging? How did you charge your iPod during the reception?

 

Thanks.

People can get away with nice shorts, and definitely jeans.  The only thing they were strict about was wearing a bathing suit in the restaurants.

We did the same for our reception with renting their sound system but i wanted to save some money for my Welcome Beach Party so I am bringing my Ihome. For the background music purpose it will work and I don't have to rent their sound system twice :)

I have Carolina as my WC and I think she's awsome!

 

I was a pretty relaxed planner tho, didnt really finalize anything until about a month before our wedding, when the final payment was due. We had emailed back and forth a bit, but most of it was done over the phone one month out. We chatted, while sending emails back and forth confirming pictures of things I had sent earlier. All details finalized in about an hour and a half :) It was perfect! I'm getting married in 9 days and Im super pumped!! Feel totally prepared and well planned!

 

Try to keep in mind that each WC has a number of brides to dote on and as each ones day gets closer and closer, she will have more time to focus solely on you. Try not to stress. Start collecting pictures of things you like and ideas of what you want and it will all come together in the end. I've heard many brides post great things about the onsite WCs and that they pull it all together in the end anyways!

 

Good luck, happy planning!

Add me to the list... Getting married April 3, 2011 at the Sensatori Azul. Is anyone working with Carolina as a WC? I have found her to not be very helpful. I am hoping to go with a set menu, however, I really want tirmusi for dessert. Has anyone tried to change part of the set menu? Will they allow it?

 

I have also done no planning for wedding decorations. I am hoping that someone who is getting married around the same time might be interested in sharing supplies?

 

Thanks! Super glad a found such a supportive group to be part of.

I remember seeing something about make-up costs a while back, but cant find it sad.gif

 

According to the spa info provided by my WC, make up is $165, has anyone been told otherwise? I thought someone had said it was only $85...

 

Thanks is advance!

 

 

 

Ms.H:

 

Sure I can share! I´m being charged 90 us for the trial day and 60 us on the wedding day (the trial is more expensive because it takes more time getting the idea through. the same price for Bride and bridesmaids. The makeup being used is MAC and the makeup people are all very experienced. The hair is also 90 and 60 us.

 

This is the web where you can check it out.  http://www.floresjulieta.mex.tl/tienda.html  hope t´s useful.

 Hey Maggie,

 

How are you working the welcome beach party?  I was thinking of using our "free" cocktail party for the welcome party, and if we could do a dance party after, that would be great.  Did you discuss this with your wedding coordinator?

Nan, so are bringing this person to the resort? Isn't there a vendor fee you will have to pay?  Or, are you going to them?

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
