Thank you Mexico102 for the review! It all sounds so amazing. I can't wait till it's my turn! I have one question. How did you transport your wedding dress? Did you carry it on the plane?

I carried it on........in my review I comment on how TERRIBLE AIRTRAN is.  Some of this is due to how they regarded me with my WEDDING dress.  They jammed it into an already stuffed overhead on the first leg of the trip.  Good thing my package included steaming our wedding attire!!!!  Hopefully you are not flying airtran but if you are arrive very early and just stake your claim of the overhead!!!  One flight attendant was about to take it and check it.....thank god one took pity on me.......so wrinkled or under the plane, hopefully making to mexico!!  Wrinkled was better

AsiaJane-

Call your airline.  I called Contintental and asked if they could accomodate me since I will be carrying a wedding dress, they told me that I have to ask the flight attendant when I get on the plane, no guarantee that they can put it in a closet.  Fortunately, they didn't say I would have to check it, so hopefully the flight attendants are good.

thank you ladies!!! If the resort can steam the dress then I'm not too worried anymore plus we are not flying w/ airtran ;).  Both of your weddings seemed amazing. I hope mine turns out the same!!!

Hi I am new to this site and am hoping to have my wedding at PA April-May of 2011. I want to go ahead and book it but since my guest are not ready to yet. I am worried since it is not that far away that I could book my trip and then my guest have trouble finding reservations... Has anyone else run into this?????

Hi Tracy! I just went through the same thing, since we wanted to get married in April, May or June of 2011. I think the first thing you should do is contact the wedding coordinator and secure your date. I was surprised at how little availability there was, and we didn't end up with our ideal date (even though we are still very happy). Once your wedding date is confirmed, there's a lot of flexibility in booking reservations--ESPECIALLY if you use a travel agent and book a block of rooms at a group rate. I have been speaking with Teresa, who I found by filling out the "Request for travel agent" form on this site. She was also able to contact the resort on my behalf when I wasn't getting a quick response. Her group rate quote was also much better than the resorts rates online.

 

And that the other thing. It's taken 3 days (or more) to receive a response from the wedding coordinator. I know they are busy people and all, but it can also be frustrating when all you want is to nail down a wedding date!

 

Congrats!

Thanks Jessica!     I think we are going to book this week but I am kind of bummed because the only time they have available is 3pm. I was really hoping to have our pictures when the sunsets. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is there anyway to do the pictures after the cocktail hour? Help!!!

Hi Ladies,

 

I just got back from Dreams and had such a great time. I will post a review soon :)

 

Our wedding was Dec 3, and we were there from Nov 30-Dec10. We saw LOTS of weddings there, and they all looked perfect! The wedding coordinators know what they are doing, so don't worry about a thing! They do this every day!

 

A couple things for the recent posts...I brought my dress with me on the plane, we had connecting flights and once I had to put in overhead storage and then was able to put it in the closet (Air Canada). No problem either way, they prepared it for me at the resort as part of the package and it was perfect.

 

Book your date as soon as you can, like I said, there are sooo many weddings there, the dates fill up fast!

 

I had my wedding at 2pm, it was perfect! We used the resort photographer, and although I would have liked more than 50 pics (incl in the Ultimate pkg) there were some that turned out really really good. We had a friend with us who is also skilled with a camera and he took some great ones at sunset.

 

Let me know if you have and questions...either on here or private message. :)

Hi ladies! I wa wondering who you are hiring for your hair and make up. I've been talking with Adrian Guerra and he is super nice. Also what are you doing for flowers? I'm talking to Marvin from Mayan Diseno Floral and I love his work. My important question is about day passes for outside vendors. I'm hiring mostly outside vendors and DPA wants to charge a fee fe each. Did anybody run into this and if so, did you pay for each or were able to negotiate? Thanks

    • 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!
