ugh! that is frustrating! if I can make your weekend any better, I will say dont be too stressed...the only two things that you absolutely must have booked/done before you get to Mexico is the places you want your events to be held at and your appointments at the salon for the day of your wedding....seriously EVERYTHING else can be done when you get there and meet with your coordinator (whoever it is)...this comes from the bride who had binders and was overly anal, organized and stressed about everything...once i got down there and met withYazmin, all my worries were put to ease...they are so professional about it all, and they do 3-4 weddings a day, so they really do know what they are doing...so try not to stress too much...have a great weekend!

I concur with Nicole. The hard part (if you can call it that wink.gif) will be be done before you arrive.  The coordinators know what they are doing and the 3-4 weddings a day work like clockwork...and you still feel like it is YOUR day. But I agree that you should maintain a paper trail...just in case. I too had a binder, folders and copies of everything with me and ended up not needing most of it. My wedding coordinator was assigned Feb '10 (Dulce) and switched Oct '10 (Wilma).  Don't stress ladies. It will all be fine.

 

Have a good weekend!

Hey girls!! For the ladies who did a civil ceremony, how did the marriage certificate details work out?  I just got a "Name Change Kit" from a friend of mine who recently got married, and its making me nervous as far as how I'm going to get all of these certified copies of the marriage certificate. I don't know if I have to get these in Mexico or if I can get certified copies here in the states??  I also heard that a lot of places make you have them translated before they will be accepted.  Did any of you have to go through any of this?  Does it take long to receive your marriage certificate? (they give you a copy and mail the certified copy right!?!)  Ahh!! So confused by all of this!?!?

Hey Jess! I was so worried about all of this too b/c everyone says you will have such a hard time with it.  We paid the resort to have copies translated in English (i think we got 3 of them) and we also got the certified copies in Spanish.  It actually turned out to be so easy, I live in NJ, not sure how PA works but this is what I did...I wound up not even using the translated in English copies.  I took the certified Spanish copy with me to DMV and to Social Security, showed both of them the paperwork and thats it, they were able to give me my new license and new social security card with my new last name...After you have those two things thats all you really need to change your name everywhere else...I would carry a copy of your marriage certificate with you though the first month b/c some places did ask to see it.  Its funny but nobody really said anything about it being in Spanish...I guess b/c the names were all in English so it was pretty easy to understand.  If you have any other questions let me know :)

Sorry I can't help.  I'm taking the easier route and doing all the paperwork here first.  Hopefully someone can help you out.  I know there are some other threads on this that I ran across.

Nicole, thanks SO much!!  That helps a lot.  I started looking around the forum first and was seeing some people complaining about their DMV and SS offices not taking the spanish version, but I will ask them for a few copies in English like you did just in case!  Did you get your certified copy right away or did they mail it to you?

I don´t know Cristina but my original wedding coordinator was Wilma, then got switched to Lorena 2 months before the wedding and then got switched to Edith literally the day I was traveling to ASP for my wedding! It stressed me out at first but Edith ended up being absolutely wonderful. Everyone at the resort was amazing on our wedding day!! The only advice I have about this is to definitely print out everything and bring it. Lorena told me my new wedding coordinator would have everything I had decided on, and when I met with her, she had none of it. Luckily I had it all on email. It´s hard to say don´t stress but really, try not to. ASP/ACP is the most fabulous place to have your wedding!!

 

I´m on my honeymoon this week at a different resort so I will post a review soon after I get back!!

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
