21 days wow - you must be getting SO excited!!! Since mine's almost a year away, the other girls are ahead of me in the planning stage (and have already helped me so much, so thanks ASP ladies!) but having done a site visit in March, I got to see all the ceremony/reception spots. We are doing a welcome cocktail on the Cove terrace, having our ceremony in the Cove gazebo, and our reception on Mundaca rooftop. We're thinking of  brunch the morning after the wedding and haven't decided yet on the rehearsal dinner. Honestly, it's such a great resort that no matter WHERE you choose to have everything on site, I'm sure you'll love.

 

PS. There's a thread on here about 'What I would & wouldn't do again' and MANY brides said they wished they hadn't upgraded their cake, that it ended up being MORE than enough so I think you're making a good call :)

Do you know if they will set those up for you at the ceremony and/or reception??? I'm just worried we will have to do it ourselves and when in the world will we find the time!!??

 

I also haven't decided where to have the ceremony...anyone have a suggestion for me?

We are doing the complimentary package and adding on the horse and carriage ride and the harpist. I hope it's worth the money. We are keeping the complimentary wedding cake and just having the servers cut the cake in 49 pieces instead of 35. lol I figure we are having the Italian buffet for our dinner and that comes with a bunch of different desserts so why pay to upgrade the cake right? Thoughts on that??

 

What private events is everyone having? We are doing a welcome dinner the night before the wedding, a breakfast the morning of and the cocktail hour and reception. I've been emailing Cristing (WC) alot lately and she hasn't been responding very quickly. Does anyone know if they have a rehearsal for the ceremony?

La Luna does amazing work!!  If you went with them, I know you would be happy!  Our budget was so tight that I couldn't really afford them (or some of the others I really loved).  I am going with Octavio Montes -- he is extremely budget friendly!

Hey!

 

I'm using Melissa with La Luna. Her prices seemed the most fare. I can't wait to use their services. I def. didn't want to book with the resort because based on the portfolio nothing really impressed me. Just make sure you let your WC know if you do go with an outside vendor, because they try to tell you that it's not allowed. All you have to do though is pay for a day pass for the photographers.

 

Hope that helps! cheesy.gif

Hey Ladies,

 

So here's my issue:

 

1.) Cristina hasn't responded to my emails in days...my wedding is 3 weeks away and I'm starting to get a bit annoyed!

 

2.) I'm still missing a few things for my OOT bags and need your help/advice. Here's what I have so far:

 

Personalized Pocket Tissues

Personalized Chap Stick

Hand Sanitizer

BandAids

Beach Balls

Beer Koozies

Flip Flop Lollipop (lol) - they were cute!

 

I still need to get imodium, aloe vera, and aleve. Does anyone know of any good coupons or where I can find this stuff for cheap?? I'm desperate!

 

Thanks!

Lauren

Ahhh Lauren that is so frustrating :o(

 

I found advil packets at my dollar tree (1 box = 6 packets of 2 pills each).  I ended up putting two packets a piece in my OOT bags, so 1 box filled 3 of my bags.  I don't think that was too bad?  I think the Dollar Tree has aloe too!?

 

I just found this Imodium coup!!!  http://www.imodium.ca/en/coupon.asp.  You can print it right off the website, as many as you want!  I completely forgot to purchase imodium for my Oh Sh!t Kits (how could I do that..it has the problem in the NAME!?! lol!!).  They are already sealed, but I think I might purchase some anyway. 

 

Hope that helps!?  I was actually thinking of doing beach balls in the bags too -- I found some at the Dollar Tree (can you tell I'm obsessed with that place!?).

So it didn't post my response:  Jzy10- orange is my color as well! :)  I can't wait to see your photos and see how everything turns out, because I was thinking of doing orange and white lanterns as well!

How many people are traveling with you?  Have you picked/reserved anything besides your date with the resort?  I agree, they are WAY overpriced!  I am doing the complimentary package and just bringing orange chair sashes for the ceremony.  They will be giving me an alter flower in place of my bouquet.  I am also bringing orange and white lanterns to hang from the pandero terrace for our cocktail party.  Other than that, really the only other stuff I'm bringing are my gifts, OOT bags and bouquets.

    • 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!
