It was beautiful and private and right on the beach...here is a pic. I don't know if it would cost more, but I'd imagine not much

This is just beyond the "quiet pool" nearer the water activities hut
WOW!!!!! I LOVE this idea!!!!!! I wonder if it is an additional cost? I hope not! I really want to do this now! I love this idea!!!! :) :) :) I just found out today that we're only having 14 max! So this would work perfect! :) I'd probably request some lanterns or something, for a little more light though...

THANKS NEEN! for posting this! I bet a lot of brides are going to start doing this! I know I keep saying it... but its just such a neat idea! very intimate!

THANKS AGAIN!!!!

Ladies! The forum is currently looking for the "member of the month" and I voted for SunBride. Since we've all been praising her on this thread, I figured others should know about her wonderful work too!

If you want to vote for her, go to BDW contests.

It would be awesome (and well deserved) if one of our brides gets chosen!!

Aww, thanks "can't wait" that's so nice of you, but definitely not necessary, the praise I get on the forum is enough to keep me motivated :)

Welcome Ashjanbro! We love having new people join our thread. I'm happy to hear everything has been helpful so far.

I notice your post count is only 1 - which is weird because I thought the first thing you had to do to make your account active is put up an introductory post in the "newbie section". You may want to go over there now and post your info (there is instructions at the top of that forum) to make sure your account remains fully active.

Updating the Bride list with your info...

Thanks SunBride. After reading your e-mail I did post in the newbie section as well.

 

I think I have read practically all of the 100 plus pages of posts on this site, and I do have the 2008-2009 wedding guide. However, I do still have a couple of questions that have yet to be answered. First, I know that chair covers and bows are included in the dreams of love package for the ceremony, but is there an additional charge for the bows on the chairs during the reception? If so, how much is that? Second, the new wedding guide states that if there is going to be music and dancing during the recpetion, they must take place in the ballroom. But, I've seen a lot of '09 brides who say they are having their reception at one of the restaurants or on the beach. Are they not having music or did I miss something? Finally, was everyone pleased with the stylists in the salon?

Well one thing is that the new wedding guide was only released about 2 months ago and many 09 brides had already booked under the old policies and one or two of those brides has confirmed that the old policies will still apply. I think there is also another exception to the rule too (something to do with seaside grill or el patio, but you have to rent the restaurant privately?) but I don't remember exactly what it is so I'll let somebody else cover that.

As for the hair stylist, I was very pleased, she did almost exactly like the photo I showed her, it was a little different but still very nice and all the ladies at the wedding were really impressed with my hair (I rated it 9/10 because it wasn't exactly what I wanted, but everyone else thought it was perfect). I had trinidad. Another recent bride had her too and also said she was very good. My two bridesmaids were slightly disappointed, but it's because their hair was very short (above shoulders) and the stylists couldn't do the look they wanted. It still also looked very nice, it's just the pile of hair was smaller then they wanted it to look. In fact almost every single bride has said that their hair turned out very well (don't know if they all had trinidad too or if they used other stylists). So that's one less thing for you to stress about! Bring a picture if you can, but if not they have several huge books of hair styles.

"Well one thing is that the new wedding guide was only released about 2 months ago and many 09 brides had already booked under the old policies and one or two of those brides has confirmed that the old policies will still apply."

 

Landy sent me the 2007/08 guide when I booked, but I have yet to hear from her about whether I'll have to pay the 08/09 prices. Truth be told, I'm a little scared to ask for fear that she'll just tell me that the 2009 prices apply now. For example, Ashjanbro is getting married 2 days after me and she was given the new prices (although I guess I did book sooner). I think it's going to be sticky to try and get them to honour their old prices for us who have weddings scheduled in 2009. I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get the old prices, but my FI are budgeting according to the new prices just so that we don't get scr#@* over!

    • 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.
