That's great Nicole.  Very happy for you.  I can't wait until it gets closer and I can start seeing the numbers booked go up.

That is so so so awesome! I can't wait to see pictures from your wedding. I believe your the next one on here (ASP) to get married? Its late, so I might be off. Anyways...with 75 nights you also get 7 nights free. How great is that. Thats probably my biggest drive to get 75nights.

Hey ladies!! Ive been MIA for a little while.

 

Im getting married on 11/12. Im so excited!!! I cant believe how fast time is moving. This Saturday is my bridal shower, cant wait! The week after that, is my Houston bachelorette party then the weekend of Oct. 1st is my Jersey bachelorette party...then the wedding! Yikes!

 

I hired Adrian Herrera for photography, his work is amazing! I hired Fernando for hair and make-up. Im just buying day passes for everyone.

 

I purchased the Diamond package and will probably just pick out all of the decor down there. I dont want to travel with a bunch of things to Mexico so Ill probably hit up the local Walmart or Playa for hurricane vases for centerpieces and what not.

 

I was gonna hire the DJ, but he was way too pricey so I just went with the docking station. Im only expecting about 45ppl so Im sure the music will be loud enough for everyone to hear. I plan on going to the disco after the reception to continue the party :)

 

I already made an appt for the salon for mani, pedi and massages for the bm's. Im so excited to spend the morning of my wedding at the spa with my besties!

 

I too recently reached my 75 room nights!! I actually have about 3 or 4 more people booking on top of that. Its so exciting!! Now I can email Dulce to reserve my welcome dinner and brunch (day after wedding) locations.

 

I think thats it so far regarding the resort planning. Still have lots of little things to do still. huh.gif

Nicole:  How do you find out how many weddings are booked on your date through the website???

 

 

Ladies...thank you SO much for your comments about the photographer...I'm going to just wait it out for a little. 

 

Shalanda (sgray), I am hoping I get to see your resort photographer photos and choose then!?!?!  By the time your wedding is over I will still have over 6 months to choose!  Where in PA are you from!?! I am outside of the philly area - near the airport
 

 

Erika, have SO much fun this weekend and next!!!!!!!!

Nicole, the best way to verify how many weddings are actually taking place is through your wedding coordinator. This resort is huge! You have the Spa Palace side to choose from also, as long as no children are present.

 

I'm going to go through some of my photographers pictures and see if I can find any of your locations. I'll email them to you.
 

Congrats on reaching the 75 nights. Throw as many parties as you can!! We added the welcome dinner at the last minute and it was a great start to our wedding weekend!

Choose a photographer that you LOVE! You will regret not having great photos of your wedding day. I had the resort photographer and my own photographer (friend of my husbands) and I wasn't happy with either. Don't get me wrong, I had some beautiful photos but I was expecting more. I added my outside photographer to the guest list and paid the $80 (whatever it is) for him to come onto the property. I wish I would have went with the photographer I actually really wanted.

Congrats! That is wonderful. I was initially happy about just having 60 rooms booked to have one private event. Unfortunately, my list is beginning to dwindle a bit. But, as nicdeb928 said, "stress free" smile72.gif

We're getting married and we're going to have a FABULOUS time!

    • 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!
