Riviera ... would you be able to give me some prices (dinner/reception, wedding, flowers) when you get them? I've only been looking at all-inclusives ... I want to see how they compare

I am not sure where they get the food from.. We had our tasting at Aioli restaurant, so I do believe the food is prepared on the hotel ground.. possibly at Aioli restaurant kitchen, but with a different chef who is in charge of group events.

Are you planning on having a tasting?

P.S. I love your photo, you guys look so cute together!!!

smile72.gif Thank you so much for your reply! It is so awesome to hear that!!! The resort is really pretty, and it felt very private, and cozy.. My friend who is from Cancun originally recommended Le Meridien, and that same girl recently got engaged, and she is booking with Le Meridien as well!! We are so excited we will be planning the wedding together! I will try to post as much information I can get out of her! Cancun local girl!

I want to incorporate a slightly Korean theme into my wedding (i'm looking around Tulum) but I don't know how to do it. I've only been to Korea once, and only for 5 weeks. Do you have any suggestions for me, also are you using Korean favors for your guests? If so, where are you getting yours?

Thanks, Kelly
Kelly, welcome to the forum! This website is awesome isn't it?? I learned so much from all the girls (and boys) on this forum and it helped me so much in site decision making!

A fellow Korean girl! I am definitely incorporating Korean flare to the wedding along with Mexican theme. I am still in the beginning stage of the planning, so I haven't really gone far on looking for all the details!

I don't know what color theme you are having, but for me, I was thinking of multiple colors, which I thought was very ethnic (both Korean and Mexican), so from that, one of idea I had was (other than the Korean tea ceremony I am organizing...) to have Korean dolls on the wedding cake, for example...

I think you can also use chopsticks as an added element to the table setting, with a nice case. see picture below, I just downloaded pictures from internet just now..

When are you planning on having your wedding? I am almost there on finalizing my date for Dec.13th this year, and if yours is later than that, I am sure I can feed you more information as my planning progresses a bit more!

As far as getting these favors, for me it is not too hard to get items like these because I live in New Jersey (decent size Korean population with a good size Korean town) and work in New York (32nd to 34th street between 5th and 6th is a small korean town), which gives me pretty good korean resources. Also because I have a lot of friends in Los Angeles, (A HUGE Korean town) I have very good access that way as well. I believe you can purchase a lot of the items on-line as well; I haven't started my search yet, but if I come across really good sites, I will let you know.

I saw a blog, I believe it was part of theknot site,where a Korean couple posted their wedding at Le Meridien, which can give you an idea on how they used Korean theme into their wedding.. I can't remember the site addy and I can not seem to find it! I will keep on looking, and when I find it I will PM you or post it here for you.

Sure, no problem. I am attaching the documents I got from Le Meridien. If you can't view them, or can't download them due to lack of points (I had this problem before), just PM me with your e-mail addy and I will forward it to you. Hope this helps!

We were only going to have a tasting the week of the wedding.. I had heard good things about the food so I wasn't too worried. Did you decide on the package?

and thank you blush2.gif

hahaha, your welcome!!

Well, we are kind of doing a custom package... so to speak... As you know, they are very flexible with whatever you want, so I have been putting in a few special request, like the Korean Traditional tea ceremony, dinner from Aioli, and also I am looking at bringing our own alcohol.. What are you doing with beverage option? Are you having an open bar? Our guests are not a big drinker, so I thought it may be cheaper if I use one of those beverage delivery services, and pay the corking fee instead...... I don't know.. I am still debating on that.

For the program, it is pretty standard though.. Ceremony, Cocktail reception, Dinner reception, Korean tea ceremony, dance party afterwards..

I haven't ironed out everything yet, that is basically it for now.. Have you chosen a package? Before I met with Jesica, I was thinking of choosing the Sophia's Sapphire package. We had tasting from that menu.

Oh, one question for you! I saw your post about the pop-up sea shell luggage bag! which I TOTALLY LOVE! I am thinking of using them as STD! Could you tell me how big they are? I am going to order it on-line but want to buy paper boxes for them too as soon as possible..

Thanks!!

    • 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.
