Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I don't think the guests will go straight to the reception area, they'll probably head to one of the bars or go back to their rooms to freshen up etc. Out of 42 people all together I think almost 30 of them are family so some time or other we'll need them for pics! :)

Hi ladies!

With just a little over a month to go.. am in a bit of a panic.. first of all, where would you recommend to find a good affordable florist in puerto aventuras, and secondly, is it worth it to skip cocktail hour... I heard a few of you mention that.

but first the flowers! Im looking for callas, which are expensive no matter where I go and they have to be imported, so the sooner I get on it the better.

Thank you

Selene

Sunsetselene- I did not try finding a florist so I am little help there, but if you can not find someone to get callas in, I ended up having a florist where I live put together silk bouquets for me of callas and gerberas because the resort did not have what I wanted and they look awesome! It is just an idea if you run into a bind.

My personal opinion is to go through with the cocktail hour. Our guests loved it. I am very glad we did not skip it.

 

If you are bringing in a DJ, you have to pay the day pass of $55.00 per person.

 

I used silk flowers as well, and they looked awesome! You will save yourself a lot of money. I will attach a picture of the silk flowers so you can get a feel for how they look.

I also used silk flowers so I can't help you there either, but I'll bet if you check under "vendors" there are probably some flower reviews for the area :)

Regarding the cocktail hour, my guests really loved that they had something to do while we had our photos taken. It gave the two sides of the family time to mingle and meet each other. Plus they said they had an excellent time drinking while watching me attempt to not fall over on the rocks with my heels on, since they are right next to the bar. haha (The photographers insisted on this.. it better have been worth the pain!)

 

Sarah - Regarding the DJ guest fee, I think it is $55 but maybe Jacki can do something for you.  Since we used outside photographers, we asked if we could get the money back for NOT using the resort photographerss included in our package, and Jacki was awesome and waved the guest fees for them, which saved us $110.  So don't hesitate to ask her what she can do for you!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
