We started registering around May/June. My co-workers threw me a surprise shower in August and my family shower was in September. We updated our registeries a lot before the showers since I had registered for everything I liked when I was in the store and then went online and took things off and changed things. We also registered for some seasonal items that were no longer available by the time our shower invites went out.

Hi and welcome! Congrats on your upcoming May wedding.

I will be using the spa stylist, I've actually read a lot of good things about this spa, so hopefully they are right. I will be posting a review when I get back too, so maybe that will help you with your decision since Del Mar and Beach are on the same side.

I don't know which pictures/choices they gave you for floral arrangements, but I got a few pictures too and nothing thrilled me. I will still use their flowers as I've been told by other DW brides who stayed at other resorts that usually you get a HUGE binder of flowers to choose from. So I'm guessing the pics you saw were maybe a tiny percentage of what they actually have or can do. I hope this helps.

Good luck!

I have heard good things about the resort spa. I am getting a hair and makeup done there, but I'm bringing my own makeup down. I had my makeup done at Bare Escentuals here and liked the way it turned out.

I am getting all roses for the bouquets and centerpieces. You can put in a request for certain flowers that you want since they may have to order them ahead of time and depending on what it is there may be an extra charge. I requested pink/fuschia roses for my bouquet and one for Mike's boutonier (sp?) and white for the girl's bouquet and centerpieces.

I didn't respond earlier because I wasn't sure if you meant me or not. Ha ha! We will be there for 10 days. I wish we could have stayed a little longer, but my soon to be hubby didn't have enough time off. Today is my last day of work, and I have mostly been working on wedding stuff! I printed out our photo list, confirmed with the photographer, did our timelines, etc. I just have to finish working on my wedding programs, finish packing and that is it. We got the margarita mix favor packets today. They have a palm tree on them, our names and wedding date. We are going to buy mini bottles of tequila when we get to the resort (I'm attaching the list the WC sent me if anyone is interested). I got small gift bags to put the tequila and mix packets in. Each couple or single guest will get one bag with one bottle of tequila and 2 mix packets. I also want to get maracas, but the WC said it would be cheaper to get them in town rather than at the resort. Depending on what we find I will either buy one set per person to put on the tables, or just get them for the kids. We'll see how much they cost and how many they have when we get there.

Thanks for all the Help, I will have to ask my wedding coordinator out here to ask for a copy/email pics of that binder with the flowers!!!

Me Too! (I wasn't happy at all with the pics they sent us about the flowers) actually it's been like 4months of trying to pick out flowers with Gabriella the w.c at the Del Mar. I am starting to lose it over flowers! Everything I ask for or send a picture of that I like they don't have that flower (which other florists in mexico have that flower -hmmm) or it is expensive. I know that the florist has to get a cut and than the iberostar takes a cut but for 8 orchids they want $240 (for that I can ship 30 orchids from hawaii to mexico - okay i exaggerate but ya get the point - actually mexico's orchids according to other florist are about 20-30 orchids for $100-150)! I guess I just needed to vent a little smile41.gif hahahaha...

When are you getting married? For surely let me know what ya think of the spa!!! Thanks again for the help!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
