Valentin Imperial Maya Brides?

Recommended Posts

Ahollo, I think your invites are super cute too :)

 

Invites are really expensive for some reason. A lot of brides on here are addicted to vista print, and I think they do invites too. We didn't do paper invites for our wedding b/c we wanted to keep it really small, but we sent out invites for our AHR that we bought from Target, and had printed at Office Depot. Unfortunately I don't have a pic of them but they looked very professional and really good. For 200 invites, I think I only spent around $70 for them, and that includes the invite, response card, envelopes and all the printing.

Back from my wedding at the Valentin, and oh my goodness, it was absolutely fantastic! It was better than I imagined it would be, and I'm so happy we did it! I'll be posting my review and some pictures this week!

Soooo according to the VIM facebook page, there are changes happening at the VIM. Apparently, the Lobster Pot now charges a surcharge of $20 for their lobster dishes. Also, the coolers of beer and floaties that were on the beach are now gone. That is as much as I gathered on facebook. I'm not sure if anything else has been taken away.

 

This happened on July 15th. So the resort says that if you booked your trip prior to that date then they will waive the surcharge. I emailed my WC about this. Since I have not booked my trip yet BUT have booked my wedding, then assumingly this fee would be waived for us as well since we booked our wedding based on the amenities offered. She said not the fee would no it will not be waived.

 

Just wanted to give you girls a heads up. I am very dissapointed. It's just the princible of it all.

The Valentin has recently switched owners, and the new one comes from Spain and has made a lot of cut backs. The extra charge for the lobster is one. We noticed some little things-no more mints on the pillow before bed, no more chips in the fridge. No floaties in the pool. Sadly, they do make a difference.

 

There is still plenty of beer-you definitely won't want for that. They have coolers with water at the beach, but I think you have to get the beer at the bar, which is right next to the coolers. No big deal.

 

About the floaties-if you want one, bring your own! The gift store charges like $17 for a floatie you could buy for $3 at Target.

Any brides choose the Steak and shrimp off the menu??

 

Just wondering how that was. I was at the Valentin last week and the steak was very good at the French Restaurant - but wasn't too thrilled with the one I tried for lunch at the restaurant by the beach. Any suggestions?

So Ariadna just emailed me after I was upset about the Lobster Pot.. she nows says that if the wedding was booked prior to July 15th then they will waive the surcharge. Also she said that to bring an outside photographer it is not only $75 (day pass) instead of $200 (vendor fee). I hope she stays by that becasue 75 is a lot different that 200!!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
