    Hi, did you like working with destinationweddings.com? We used them inititally but had 2 really bad experiences and ended up just using a local travel agent...just curious how it has worked for you?

      Quick question for you regarding the OOT bags, are you planning to give one per person or one per room?

      Thanks!

      Hi everyone! I am getting married at the Del Mar on 12/8.
      Anna, I will be 2 days after you for my wedding...we are arriving on the 2nd - so I may get to meet you while you are there.

      Beach Bride - your "to do" list is almost exactly like mine - except I need to still get my jewelery and shoes and figure out all the music play-lists. I am struggling with the center-piece as well. I know they don't offer any centerpieces, and I honestly cannot fathom brining down vases, etc for the tables...I so I would really appreciate hearing what the WC says about the what the florists can do.

      Also, I'm going to ask my WC at the Del Mar if there is a policy about brides leaving stuff down there? For example, you have glass starfish tea-light holders, that perhaps I could split with you, and you could leave them there? That saves you having to bring them home, saves me having to bring them there, and helps with costs.......this could possibly work for other people with other things too I guess. I need them to give me some more details around center-pieces - that is starting to stress me out.

      Also, I asked (pleaded, begged) for a grooms room (complimentary) the night before the wedding, but they said "no go"...oh well. I saw it was somethign the Dreams brides got for free, so thought I'd give it a try.

      I'm working with Reyna at the Del Mar, and I have found her to be very responsive.
      We are using the Tropical restaurant for the dinner/reception, for the rental fee of $800 (which seemed pretty steep to me) and i wanted to do the cocktail reception at the pool bar, but she keeps trying to steer me into doing it on the outside fo the Tropical Reception (but has not been able to show me any photo's of how this works). I cannot get a feel for why they keep eding me away from the pool bar for this 1 hour reception, with 40 people and a Mariachi band.....does anyone have any thoughts on this? Or what is any of the Del Mar brides doing for a cocktail hour (while photo's are being done)? Would love to hear how it is working for you.

      Have a great weekend everyone!! happy Planning.

        We are doing 1 bag per room, but for some things within the bags (like koozies for example), each person will get 1.
        If our numbers keep going up, we may change to 1 bag per floor - ha ha ha.

          Have a great weekend everyone!! happy Planning.
          I need to email the WC coordinator back about a couple things so I will ask her about leaving items. I wonder if it will be an issue since I am getting married at the Lindo? I wouldn't want the items to get lost before your wedding. I guess I could always drop the stuff off at the Del Mar after the wedding with the WC there, if they are OK with it. Do you want to ask your WC and let me know? I might be doing the suitcase trial run next weekend when I have more time. I have all the candleholders already packed in my carryon which is inside my other luggage. I was running out of room to store stuff so I had to get creative! I will take pictures of the candleholders so you can see what they look like. There are two starfish holders per package and I think they were $9.99 each. I bought 6 packages so 12 total. I also bought 12 small glass tealight holders.

          Also, if any of you were planning on ordering cups for your OOT bags and would be interested in splitting an order of the color changing cups there is a new thread posted. We were just going to do a general logo in black with a palm tree, starfish and Riviera Maya, Mexico. The minimum order of the cups was 250 and most of us don't need that many. Let me know if you are interested or search for the thread catandcleo posted it.

            Hi Beach Bride - I just responded to the other thread to say I am IN on the cups......but I think we should consider having them shipped to one of us in the US vs. the address in Canada. Shipping is going to be very expensive and can take a long time to get to Canada - it might be easier if we shipped her order to her, rather than the bulk order going to her...KWIM? I just emailed my WV and asked about storing your stuff.....that idea sounds good to me and helps you on your costs. Would love to see pics though, once you get a chance to get them unpacked again. Also, I would just get standard tea-lights to go in them?

              Hey girls! I'm not sure how many of you go on the knot but there was a review there from a girl who just got married at the Lindo. Here is the link if anyone wants to check it out. The good, the bad, the ugly - The Knot Forums

                Hi thanks for letting us know that is out there!!! Great information. I did just want to clarify though - Amy got married at the Iberostar Del Mar...not the Lindo.....the WC are different at the 2 hotels, as is the location for the ceremony and reception. I'm going to email her and as the million questions on my mind - what was the food like, how was the spa, how was the Mariachi, what did the cake look like, etc, etc. THANK YOU

                  Oops - I knew that, silly me :) Apparently my brain does not communicate with my fingers as I type...LOL...I'll blame it on the fact that it's Friday :)

                  I'm glad you found the link helpful!!

                    Shipping to the US is fine with me. I finally was able to take pictures of the candle holders. The starfish actually came with tealight holders in them already, but I bought a separate bag of 100. I will leave whatever is left for you to use. I don't remember how much I paid for them, but I don't think it was much so don't worry about that. They are unscented. I have 6 packages of two starfish holders, and 12 of the small tealight holders. I think I might look for a table runner, or maybe just a square of fabric to bring with. The WC said any colored linens would have to be brought with, but they would set it up however we wanted. I think the squares might be easier and lighter since I'm not sure how long the tables will be to know if they will be the right length. Then I could just have some flowers in the middle and the candles around it. What do you think?

                      Hi Michelle, i think those are really nice.....and i think it's great that we can share them. Can you tell me the total of the candle holders and i'll pay-pal you half the money? I think the idea of the table runners is a good idea..a girl Amy just got married at the IBersotar this past week and she found some turquoise starfish one's....so i may ask her where she got those. It may just liven the tables up a bit :)
