Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

Adrianne, I really wouldn't worry about the extra questions. I think you'd said that changing over to Sandra was just a recent thing, so she's probably just trying to cover all her bases and make sure she hasn't missed anything in the hand-off from Jacy.

 

I can say that because we had no idea until last minute whether we'd be int he gazebo or inside due to weather, I just told our wedding party what I wanted as far as the order of everyone walking, the music was handed off to a GM to take care of and the timing for meals etc was all really easy to manage because we'd told the BM's, GM's and hubby's dad ahead of time so they could keep people moving along easily. It honestly all seemed pretty easy at the time!

 

As for music, I think by default we had three or four songs but that was just by chance. I couldn't decide between two songs to walk down the aisle to but they were back to back on our ipod so I was happy enough that if I got any part of either song it would be right - and it worked! Then we had a specific song for the recessional and that was it. You can always play the same music before and after, just make sure that it's long enough to get everyone where they need to be.

 

Finally, for the cocktail hour... I recall the "official" paid version including hors d'oeuvres as well as drinks and stuff so maybe that's what Sandra thought you wanted? WE didn't pay for anything and our guests wound up getting champagne at our ceremony and then drinks from Barracuda's outside. Just clarify that you are happy taking your guests outside (or to Desires for bad weather) and don't need the private service.

 

I really, truly don't think you need to worry! Just be specific about what you want and repeat if you need to and everything will be amazing!

Anyway the reason I'm writing is because I just filled out the wedding questionnaire from Sandra and it mentions that favors delivered to guest's room would be an additional $2 per room. Our traditional favor (maracas) will be given to our guests at the reception but is the OOT bag considered a favor? Was anyone charged for OOT bag delivery?
Hi all-
I had to pay $2 a oot bag. I should of negotiated with Jacy but at the point, I just wanted them delivered!!

Thanks for the reassurance Meghan. Through everything it's sounds like you really stayed calm and collected. Thanks for the tip on the cocktail hour.

My FI tells me to expect that nothing will go right because then if something does I'll be excited.... I'm usually the optimistic one but he has a point.

 

Janna, thanks for the info we will probably end up paying too... cause I dont want to hassle with delivering 44 bags :)

 

On a happy note, we had our legal day yesterday (Cinco de Mayo) and they let us bring our dogs to the ceremony.

Hey there everyone,

 

I'm new here however, excited that there is a forum like this so that we can bounce ideas of each other. Looks like there's a ton of pages for me to go through but I plan to check them all.

 

We're getting married 10-9-10 and already have 64 booked. We FI is American and I'm Canadian so we have quite the crew coming down with us.

 

So far Jacy has been great however, I welcome any tips/recommendations and I'll share whatever I can.

 

Nice meeting everyone.

44 bags is a lot...how awesome to have that many guests come!! I only had 20 bags to assemble and get to people and I thought that was many!! I know $2 a bag is a fair amount of $$, but it was one less thing to worry about and manage. I wanted to be on the beach with my fam/friends then inside delivering bags!!

Congrats on your legal day!!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
