For my wedding in November, our guests staying at a different resort paid $80/person.

Katie - I saw your pics on FB........SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! I'm glad you had such an awesome time. It makes me re-live my whole wedding :) I'm so happy for you!

Katie- You looked so beautiful and your guests looked like they were having a blast!!!!! I also love the bridesmaids dresses- such a great mix of colors, and they looked great on all of the girls! FI also wants to know- where is the cave bar?... he was pretty insistent on it haha

 

Paige- your day is coming up so soon too- are you ready??

 

Looks like everything is coming together for you velvetter- so exciting when that happens.

 

I think the guest pass is 100 if they are not staying at a sister Riu resort- but as you see by Josieâ€s post, it may have changed. IMHO, I would say that it is ok for them to pay themselves. You gave them the option of staying at your resort, and they chose not to. Of course, do whatever you feel, but I donâ€t think it would be expected that you pay for them. What do other ladies think?

 

Hey Josie! Howâ€s married life?

Our guests that stayed elsewhere were total $*(%holes so we did not pay for them. But that is so sweet of you to think of doing that!

Hey Josie! Howâ€s married life?
Hey Ladies, sorry for my long absence! I've been terrible at keeping up with BDW but love to check back in and see how all the weddings are turning out. Married life is awesome!!! It helps that my husband is wonderful :)

I think I did get 2009 pricing on the guests who didnt stay at our resort. I'm so sorry that I havent posted a review yet. I'm having a bad experience with my photog who is also a forum member and I didnt want to post something negative so I chose to post nothing. I'm thinking about writing a review and just not talking about the photography though. If you have questions let me know and I do have videos of our hotel suite, etc!

Hi girls! Thank you for all of the sweet comments!

 

Josie- Welcome back and so nice to hear from you!!!

 

For our room we ended up getting the two story suite...first they put us in room 2118, which is on the opposite side of where the gazebo is. It was also a very musty room, and not a great view...so we requested to be moved, if possible. Two days later they moved us to room 2046, which is supposedly the best room there. It was MUCH better than our first room. No musty smell and PERFECT view! It was also directly overlooking the gazebo, so I didn't have to walk far for the wedding. If you plan on doing the two story suite, I would highly recommend asking for this room; or at least try to be on that side of the building if you are planning to have your ceremony at the gazebo. If you're getting married on the beach, than it probably doesn't matter either way, since it's more centrally located.

 

The cave bar is call Alux and it was so awesome! If you don't remember the name, just get in a cab and tell them to take you to the "cave bar" and they'll know exactly what you're talking about. We went on a Tuesday night and it was actually pretty empty...could have just been the night of the week. We only went for drinks, but they also have dinner, which I almost wish we did one night. Here is the website: Alux | Restaurant & Lounge

 

Samira- I actually got my earrings at a small boutique store in my area. I found them kind of last minute and fell in love with them! If you're having trouble finding earrings let me know and I can always go get a pair and ship them to you...they had another pair of the same ones I had. :)

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
