Valentin Imperial Maya Brides?

Nikki-

 

I sent Ana some pictures of what I was thinking- all white orchids with pink throats. Then I saw Allison's flowers and am now thinking I'm going to copy her!

 

All that said, I've not heard back from Ana on the cost and if the orchids will be available in Dec.

Just to give you my two cents, I think having the cocktail hour 15 minutes after the ceremony is great. We didn't have ours until 30 minutes after the ceremony ended, and I feel like this was too much time in between. Yes, we had a champagne toast on the beach and a group photo, but this was still too much time. The only exception would be if you and your husband really want to enjoy the majority of cocktail hour. Then I'd advise the 30 mins. between b/c your photog will most likely want to get several pics of you on the beach after the ceremony.

We are planning on going shopping for speakers for our ipod this week for the reception.  I was thinking we could probably share things like that if you were interested since we are getting married the day after each other.  We also didn't want to pay the extra money but I'm trying to limit the amount of stuff we are lugging down there.  We will have about the same sized group as you too, 13 confirmed right now with possibly one more couple joining us.

Are you bringing decorations for the tables for the reception?

We are planning on just having a welcome dinner.... I wasn't sure about doing a rehersal either but I hoped like Jenlevergood, that Ariadna would just walk us through it when we meet with her to finalize everything.

 

We are having about 16-18 people at our wedding and were planning on doing just the I-pod.  $450 does seem expensive for speakers. 

 

Are you ladies planning on music at your ceremony and do you know how that will work with the I-pod??

I would think it depends on what time of year.

Hello ladies! We are heading down to the Riviera Maya to shoot a couple of weddings at Azul Sensatori next week (Nov 12th through the 22nd). We are spending out vacation part of our trip at the Valentin though, so if any of you would like us to take some pictures of any particular part of the property, restaurants/bars, beach, etc, just let me know and we would be more than happy to take some for you. Anything that you need to see the layout and and for planning purposes. I will post again before we go in case anyone misses this. It will be our first time at the Valentin and we are super excited!! smile159.gif

If anyone is looking for personalized items for their guests, I would highly recommend discountmugs.com.  We ordered personalized travel mugs that turned out amazing.  We were so happy that we ordered personalized cloth bags that we will use as our OOT bags but are the perfect size that can double as beach bags.  We are so happy with the quality of the products for the price and both boxes arrived before the delivery date, which is pretty amazing since you never know what to expect when shipping from the US to Canada.  Just a little FYI if anyone is interested, check out their website.

Anyone heard what a day pass allows guests to do? I have a couple that are staying off property and for them to come in for the wedding, they have to pay $95 pp for a day pass.. they rea;lly should just stay at the resort one nite. But does a day pass only allow you to be on the property from certain times? Can they eat and drink? I emailed ana but she has not responded yet.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
