haha! Just thought I'd let you guys know something funny...

 

So I had been holding off on e-mailing Cecilia as I had been e-mailing her several times a week with questions when we first booked at the resort and I had a million things I needed to know...

 

Well, I got an e-mail from Cecilia on Friday asking me if everything was okay because she hadn't heard from me in a while! :-)

 

I told her everyithng was great -- I was just giving her a break:-)

But I thought it was nice of her to check in:-)

I keep reading that you need to be in Mexico 4 days before you can get married. Your arrival date apparently doesn't count so if we get in on Monday, the Tues-Wed-Thurs-Friday is 4 days but could we get married on

Friday or do we have to wait for the 5th day< Saturday to get married?

To the best of my understanding you could then get married on Friday. We're arriving on Tuesday and getting married on Saturday and nobody has said anything that we need to change it. So i think you can get married on Friday if you arrive on Monday.

I know..the rules are pretty annoying. That is why I'm getting married in the states before I go to Mexico and just have a symbolic/renew our vows ceremony. I don't feel comfortable having to get a blood test and having to go through all the pre-work before my wedding. I don't want any bruises on my arms either! I asked the WC if that was okay and she said of course....

Hey ladies -- sorry to change the subject

BUT, I was just wondering if any of you have had any luck getting information on rehearsal/welcome dinners from Cecilia...in particular, info on having a beach bonfire...

The most I've been able to get from her is that this is possible...but no other info on cost or set-up etc

(I know at Scerets Capri they off this bonfire option...)

 

Anyone else looked into this...?

 

What's everybody else planning for their welcome/rehearsal dinners, if you're having one at all...?

Simistar - we are getting the free package b/c of room category we booked but I do want to have a reception. She sent me a couple of pics of what the pool terrace would look like for a reception. send me your email and I'll forward them to you. I'm not sure about a bonfire but that sounds really cool!! Only concern I thought of was having a sit down dinner on the beach with the wind blowing could be troublesome. Let me know what Cecilia says though...could still be an option for us as well.

Hey fellow B-C -er!

(I replied to your PM yesterday...or maybe it was the day before:-) Either way, hope you got it:-))

Anywaaaay, if you look on page two of this thread, you'll see I posted the secrets photo price list (I think that's what I named it...) Those are for the packages for using the resort photographer, Juan Navarro.

I know I saw on some other thread on this massive forum somewhere some girls saying when they tried to e-mail him, it took a really long time to hear back from him. It's probably better to go through Cecilia, the resort's wedding co-ordinator (I included her contact info in the PM I sent you)...

Of course, if you end up paying for an upgraded package, depending on which one you get it includes some time with the photographer and some printed photos...(I'm not actually sure if it's Juan himself that would do it...likely one of his associates...?)

Let me know if you need anything else!

    • 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!
