uuuugh.  That sounds tough  (I don't do criminal law thank goodness.  Don't think I could handle that kind of thing easily on a day-to-day basis).  Well, welcome back to less intense topics (like bouquets and invitations).  rolleyes.gif

Although it seems they allow Mexican photogs if you pay the vendor fee, I just wanted t mention that del Sol are banned from the Karisma properties!  So you may want to ensure the phoog you want is allowed before you book if it means a lot to you.  I was pretty disappointed with the policy.

i read somewhere that the outside photog cannot be mexico based?

but then i saw weddings with mexico photogs, like elizabeth medina

We made sure our photographer was okay'd before we signed our contract. We are bringing someone with us, and we didn't want to pay the $500 penalty. From my understanding it's not even the resort that gets the $500 fee, it goes directly to Caribe/ or the other one, since they lost out on the wedding deal. So when you're dealing with the resort use that information to your advantage!

So...I'm thinking of the following for bridemaids dresses...both very similar....the 1st is one from David's Bridal in lapis...2 and 3 are the same dress from Mori Lee...2 is Eggplant, 3 is Aubergine....

What do you guys think?  What color do you like the best?

Dress #2!  I like the Mori Lee dress better than the David's one b/c it's flowier and is just really cute.  I like the eggplant over the Aubergine b/c I think it'll pop more in a tropical setting.  What are your other colors?  Sorry if you've already been over this on here...I can't keep everyone's colors straight!

Colors are purple and cream/white and like eucalytus green...

This is the bouquet I'm really liking for me.... 

 

 

 

 

And I'm thinking just like ivory roses or something with some sort of greenery for the bridesmaids

I am a procrastinator - which makes me a "procrastinating bride":

Planning to rd through the threads but feel like its info overload with so many threads - there must be some sort of recommendations b/n "can't wait for it to open" to "today" - any recommendation on where to start???

Toronto bride: travelling Jan 22/11 for a week with our wedding day on the 26th at the Azul Sensatori.  Invites are out; responses due by Aug 31; around 30 or more confirmed at this pt.  Booked through "The wedding holiday" in Mississauga.  Bringing my own photographer from Toronto - willing to share with another Toronto area bride if interested and your wedding date isn't the same day!  At some point I guess I will worry about the wedding pkg deets we upgraded to - unless there are some other views?!

Many of the girls have recommended from like 400 on.  I started with that but then went back and looked at any of the reviews or pics I could find from the earlier postings.  Good luck!!

Like everyone else suggested... you should really TELL them what you want. Also try to use your TA as much as possible. My TA was awesome and talked to the resort directly rather than having me in the middle.

Haha.. you are so funny. I guess start getting early doesn't hurt. I just didn't want to look all pretty and have to sit still for hours. Thanks for the info!

2)  Our wedding was scheduled to start at 3 but started around 3:30 and was over around 3:50.  The reception was scheduled for 4:30 but we didn't get it started until around 5 because we were still taking pictures.  We took pictures for about an hour but that felt rushed so I'd say anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours is enough time.

 

3) I would say start everything as early as possible.  My ceremony was scheduled for 3pm and I started getting ready at 9am and was still late!  My MOH started my hair at 10 (I had a weave done).  She finished that around 12.  Then I got my eyelashes done which took about 45 minutes to an hour.  I then left the room and went to the spa to get a polish change.  That took an hour and 15 minutes.  I got back to the room at 2:15 and still had to get my hair styled, make-up done and get dressed.  We finally walked out the room at 3:20.  So all that to say while it seems like nothing should really take a long time, everything takes longer than it normally does on your wedding day.  So for a 5:30 ceremony I'd say you should get started no later than noon.

 

Us women have it so bad. The day before our wedding there was another wedding at 4pm.  The groom and groomsmen from that wedding were in the pool taking shots with us until 3:15.  There's absolutely no way we could get ready for a wedding in 45 minutes!!!!

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
