EDR Health bar or white gazebo?

Recommended Posts

Ok, thanks. My WC gave me the health bar as an option for my cocktail hour, but, didn't mention for reception...now, I know why. Do you think it's too small for even a cocktail hour?

Also, I am aware that La Isla may be an option for me if I have more than 75 people. I was there in May and so I've seen it before in case you can't find a pic. I really liked it!

La Isla is beautiful! if you have an option to have your reception there, I would def consider it! I totally agree with Mandy- that was one of my favorite spots.

 

This is the only picture I have of La Isla-- it is the entrance-- it is a really nice, big, open space- and the food there was excellent!

Hey guys, I'm planning on having my reception at Tucanes, I'm expecting 25-30 guests. Is this place suitable for this many people? Does anyone have any pics they wouldn't mind sharing of Tucanes..I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks,

Thanks,

I know Bre had her reception at Tucanes and Sol did her photography- so the pix are amazing-- here is the link to her slideslow.... her reception was just beautiful.
del Sol Photography associate photographer Vincent

We had our reception at Tucanes in May-- we had a total of 22 people- and it was the perfect space for that group of people! Bre had a private dinner there also, that looked fabulous-- but we just had the "free" dinner at Fuentes- and then moved to Tucanes for the dancing, cake cutting, etc... (we did the private chocolate fountain party for dessert at Tucanes). I don't yet have the "official" slideshow from Cancun Studios- but I have the link that just has all the pictures posted...
Here is the link-- the pictures at Tucanes start on page 56... We only had photographer for the first half hour at Tucanes (we had him for 5.5 hours total)- so there aren't a ton of pictures from Tucanes- just the cake cutting and first dances...
Vince & Shannon


Hope this helps!

Shannon, I was looking through your pics and I saw Mandy & Isaac in #280! They're sitting on the beach chairs, and Tim & I were on the beach bed behind them. It made me laugh as we were trying to be inconspicuous.

LOL LOL LOL-- that is too funny!! I had to go back and look! Mandy must be in the hot pink bathing suit-- i love it! well her bathing suit matches my colors-- so we should have coordinated more! hehe--- that was a picture that I flew through bc it had our "randoms" in it -Vince's mom is the pretty lady in the long pink dress and then Vince's brother is in the dreds..The other 3 people were complete "randoms"- like 8th cousins-twice-removed. They booked at another resort and called the day we left for Mexico to say they were coming--- the day we left!! Good lord!! So we kinda avoided them most of the day- hehe...
I wish I could have said hello to you guys! :)

Yep, that was Mandy! I had to go back to the pictures to look at your randoms. Isn't it funny how people think they will "surprise" you with their last-minute decision to come and expect you to be thrilled? What did you do about adding them to the dinner and reception? Oh yes, Vince's mom is a very beautiful lady - we had noticed her the day of the wedding. But of course, no one looked more beautiful than you did!

Awww thanks-- Vince and I have dated for 10 years-- so it was a long time coming! :) I was just happy (and really really nervous initially!)... I'm known as a tomboy to most, so I think just wearing a dress in general suprised people! :)
We had to add them to everything- it was kinda horrible. We had to pay for extra decorated chairs at the ceremony, we had to pay for them to be at the private cocktail party, we had to pay for them to be at the chocolate fountain party/reception at Tucanes, and then pay for the decorated chairs at Tucanes for them-- Vince's mom (since she had originally invited them-hehe)- paid for their day passes.. Valeria was really good- I was able to get an email to her from vince's laptop at the airport and then we checked in with the WC's onsite when we got there--(and paid then)-the resort was really accomodating -but it was an aggravating situation, for sure. There was an RSVP date on the invitation fryingpan.gif... oh well! :)

Shannon, your pics are beautiful! I feel like I was there! Oh, wait, I was! I actually did wear a full shirt to your wedding, not just my swimsuit! Did you notice how Isaac was trying to pretend like we weren't there spying on you? Oh, and if you look at pic 279, you'll see Mom sitting on the beach bed. And you are just so stinking gorgeous!

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
