I got the amethyst package.  I'm a huge purple lover, so I could resist.  I think I'm going to do the same about the bouquet.  I do want to take it home as a keepsake so I'm going to go that route.  Since I've been reading this blog, I do notice some people here and there have bought some of their own touches of decorations. I agree about having a modest pop of color.  I'm all about my purple. Thanks so much for the info.  I'll be in touch if I have more questions...

I went with the complimentary package and brought my own chair sashes decorate. The setting itself is enough decoration...but the modest pops of color I brought along really worked. I made my own real touch/artificial bouquet because I wanted to be able to bring it back home with me.  What is your color scheme?

Hi!

 

I'm new to this blog, but the powerpoint presentation sounds like a good idea to take a look at since I'm just starting to get my fee wet with planning.  Can you e-mail it to me?  MarTeeNi007@aol.com.

 

Thanks.

Liza

Ok so I am a couple days out from leaving.  I was wondering if any past brides had any opinions on the buffets that they offered.  There are so many and I know the food was amazing during our site visit but there are too many options!!  Any guidance would be appreciated.

 

Also, does anyone still have the 2010 price list they could email me?  Mia.Roberts.Esq@gmail.com

 

Wanted to also give you guys a heads up that I received a power point presentation from Wilma that had each event and the little details associated with it.  she even included a picture of each venue.  I would be more then happy to share it with you just shoot me a pm with your email.

 

I found it super comforting to see a recap and it gave me time to ask questions and tweak things a little. 

 

Hope you ladies are doing well!

I am also just going with the complimentary package.  I purchased orange and white lanterns to hang from the Pandero Terrace for my cocktail hour, orange sashes for the aisle chairs at the ceremony, and I am also making a personalized aisle runner.  Since I am making my own bouquet, they have agreed to give me a flower piece for the altar instead (since the brides bouquet is included free).

 

Marteeni -- I have a LOT of documents from ASP on my home computer.  When I get home from work tonight, I'll send what I have to you!  When is your wedding?

Great, I'm glad to hear he gives you all the photos on a cd.  I want to be able to have the rights to my photos to do what I want with them! :)

Hi ladies! Just read some of the recent posts and wanted to answer some questions you guys have....

-I bought my maraccas (used as favors) at the resort gift shop...the price was reasonable and it was easy

-their wedding cakes are delicious, much better than I expected..i went with the cheesecake and carrotcake

-@Liza i would definitely recommend going with a travel agent to do all your bookings, it will be some much easier and less time consuming for you

-I did my TTD session right at the resort the morning after the wedding...we had planned on taking a taxi into town to go to a beach in playa del carmen but to be honest with you, I was so drained from the wedding that I asked my photographer to just come back to the resort the next morning...the pictures came out awesome, he did some great underwater shots right in the lagoons on the resort...Juan Navarro was awesome!!!

-I had my cocktail hour scheduled to be held up on the Cove Terrace b/c i saw how beautiful and perfect it was, I just want to give you a heads up to be prepared for anything b/c i found out that while i was doing my photos, they had to move everything inside b/c the wind changed and their were bugs everywhere up there...in peoples food and drinks...it got moved inside in the upstairs lobby and was still perfect..just be prepared for anything..

-I didnt do any decorations for my welcome party, i held it on Mundaccas rooftop...keep in mind, it is very, very windy there at night...if you look at my pics, the night of my wedding people were putting blankets over themselves b/c it got so cold and windy...so when thinking of decorations make sure to remember that...also, to be honest, i felt so rushed that whole week, I dont think i wouldve had anytime to go decorate anything for the welcome party..try to keep things as simple as you can for yourselves...remember the resort scenery is so beautiful, you dont need much else...  smile159.gif

Hi Nicole,

I totally agree with you! also i have couple of questions,  I'm having my wedding receptions at muracas terrace, can I bring lantern papers for the decor?  And for the cocktail hour what do you suggest pandero terrace or cove terrace? Because i like both places, i do not know which one to pick.

Ok, everything is sent!  Let me know if you have any questions about any of it.  I'm not sure if the resort dollars are still going on into October, but I sent that document too.

 

My girls and I just made their bouquets last night, and I think they turned out pretty good.  The flowers have been laying around for awhile, so they need a little TLC, but other than that, it worked out fine (and was pretty easy!).  I didn't have enough white lilies for myself, so I will be making my bouquet today after I get back to the store.  But heres a pic so far of what we did yesterday!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
