Good idea! I'll ask Veronica about that. 

 

Which dessert is everyone choosing? All the desserts sound... interesting. "Nuts cake"... lol.

We had found maraca favors at a different resort in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta) and our plan was to ship them to Valentin.   After discussing this with Ana, she told us that they can only keep anything that is shipped for 1 week before the wedding.  Therefore, we are now having them shipped from Mexico to NJ and then lugging them back to Mexico!  UGH! 

I just don't want to risk the shipment not getting in on time or getting there too early!!

 

Also, as far as dessert, we were thinking the coconut cake?  Kind of fits with the warm tropical theme.

One option for dinner?!?! 

 

Thanks for the input on shipping, I am going to ship down favors and stuff for a candy bar.

 

Nikki, do you happen to live in Jersey?  I can't help but notice your photo is at Giants Stadium

I just got married at the VIM on Jan. 26 2011. It was absolutely fabulous!

 

SHIPPING: We decided to bring all our decorations with us in our luggage and using a couple of boxes. We were ready to pay for the extra baggage but found out at the airline registration counter (the day we left) that we could "share" our load of extra luggage and weight with any of our guests that were under weight and travelling in our group. How great is that! It didn't cost us a single penny for all of our extra stuff. This was with Nolitours leaving from Montreal. Shipping was insanely expensive and bringing it all with us on the flight ensured it would get to our destination in time.

We brought paper lanterns with led lights, raffia fans with colored ribbons, chandles, gifts, lei necklaces, flower centerpieces, etc. Everything (deco) was MUCH cheaper buying at home and bringing over ourselves thatn buying or renting in Mexico or at the VIM. We also advised all of our guests to keep room in their luggage for a surprise at the airport and greeted everyone with their OOT BAGS filled with gifts.

 

MUSIC: We also brought a BeatBox to play our iPod during the ceremony, at dinner and after for a fun night of dancing under the stars.

 

PHOTOGRAPHER: We hired Samuel Luna for photos on our wedding day and for a TTD session the following week. He and Cesar were absolutely wonderful to work with and their photos so far are stunning! We also used Blue Lense (the VIM photographer included in our Wedding Package) for a day of romantic shots all around the resort. We were trully impressed with Ashley's photos and how easily and quickly she could place us and direct us into these beautiful and fun shots all over the resort and beach.

 

Hope this helsp and if you have any other Qs, I'd be glad to share more of my experience at the VIM. :-D

Yes I live in NJ.  We actually got engaged at Giant's Stadium (first game of this past season). It's a long story but basically after I told him to buy Giant's season tickets instead of an engagement ring, he knew I was the one and proposed anyway lol

That is too funny!! I don't want to admit it, but my FI is an eagles fan.  Even though we live so close to the Meadowlands.

 

Sweetpea,

Congrats!

Yes you do, if you are having a formal reception.  For example, we are having appox. 50 people and are doing a cocktail w/ food and a reception and we will be paying $75/person for 20 people ($25 for cocktail and $50 for the reception)

Why are you only paying for 20 people if you have 50? Is it included in your wedding package?

 

Do you know what the options are for an informal reception?  Ariadna just sent me pics of the locations, but I don't know if they are formal or informal locations. I will have to ask her.

    • 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!
