Hi

 

I am considering having my wedding in RPRM in July 11, and was wondering what is considered a good price for guests for 5 days? Also, did anyone get a group rate discount, if so how much cheaper were the rooms?

Well I have offically ordered my BM dresses and I purchased my bridal shoes today! I am feeling a little better about the planning.

 

We went suit shopping for FI yesterday and didn't have any luck at all! We had a hard time finding the color we were looking for and what we did find was outrageously expensive. I am going to be ordering his suit tonight from suitstudio.com, there is a thread about it on this site. Custom linen suits for $99! I've seen a few that girls from the site have purchased and they came out great!

 

I am thinking I may add a floor length veil to my ceremony dress...I think it will dress it up more and add some drama. I may order that this morning too....As you can tell I am not feeling the working thing this Monday morning LoL!

Hi Ladies!!

There's lots of questions going on here, here's my thoughts...

 

Katie - My best friend was our MC for the night and she announced us into the reception part. If you do not plan on having an MC the DJ will do it for you.

 

I do not have pictures of all the locations just the gazebo but here are my thoughts

I think all the locations are awesome, people are going to be watching no matter where you decide to have it. I would rank as follows

1. Gazebo

2. Beach

3. Kiosk

 

The Kiosk is very beautiful however I am not sure you would get the great blue water in the backround. Originally we really wanted to have a beach ceremony but by the recommendation of many people we went with the gazebo and I am so happy we made that decision. You can still change your mind when you get to the resort too so try not to stress to much about it.

 

We were married at 1pm and it was hot out but not unbearable. I actually didn't even sweat at all so I was really happy about that. I would say that 3pm-4pm was the hottest time of the day so if you are all good with the heat go for it.

 

Ladytrunck - 5pm will be a good time too you just have limited time to take pictures. Our photos only took about an hour so you could have them done before dark. Aren't you getting an outside photographer though?

 

DreamingofSunshine - I have pictures of our groom and groomsmen wore at the wedding, take a look at my planning thread.

 

Katrina305 - We used a TA and I didn't think she was helpful at all. She gave us no perks or anything. I found from people that booked that they got the best deal on travelocity, you just have to watch for the deals.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions ladies...

Thanks Lisa! We don't have anyone to use as an MC...I actually didn't think about that, but we could always ask one of our guests to do it! If not, I will definitely have the DJ do it then. Just making sure that was an option. What song did you have everyone walk out to!? That's my next thing to decide on!

 

Let me know if any of you girls have suggestions on this!

Sammysgirl- do you have a link or pic of your bridesmaid dress??

 

I'm also going to order the custom suit from there too! Well that is if I can convince him to wear a suit. He has huge sholders and a smaller waist (well compared to his shoulders anyway) so trying to find a suit that fits is impossible!

    • 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!
