Here is my link! Not sure how I messed that up! The photographer was seriously amazing & I'm so happy we went with him. 

 

Karen84, I did use hair and makeup in my package. They were so wonderful as well! I gave them a few pictures of hair I liked & she did exactly what I asked. It also held up well in the heat. I didn't offer any suggestions for makeup, and she just started on in, so I figured she knew what she was doing-and she did! It looked very natural, but pretty for the ceremony & it also was done well for the heat! They let all the girls come into the spa (That weren't getting their hair done there) to watch & brought us all champagne. It was a great experience. The spa was also on the bottom floor so was nice & cool while we got ready. I would highly recommend! A bonus is that it's part of the package!

Was doing some research on Adventure Photos and came across your post. I just HAD to tell you that your dress is GORGEOUS!!!!!  so beautiful. Wonderful pictures. Congrats!

I have a question for you ladies!   Did you all reserve a room block?  I am working with a travel agent, she has been fantastic so far but I recently lost my job and putting $1000.00 down to block 10 rooms seems like bad timing right now.  My travel agent said that since it is such a small resort that she is concerned about not doing the room block far in advance.

 

My wedding is Dec. 2015, do I have plenty of time to block the rooms?

 We didn't even have the option of blocking off rooms. We had about 40 people, and rooms were located all over the place. We had asked for everyone to be on the same floor, but no luck.

That's odd!  I guess I don't really care if we're all super close together, I was mostly trying to save everyone money per room.  I may prefer my family not to be near me, but we'll see :)

Hello!!!

 

I am booked at Dreams Puerto Aventuras for October 22, 2015!

We're coming from Canada and already have 29 people booked; with our saved the dates mailed out last week. I'm not too sure how big our party will be. But I reserved with a $500 deposit for either of the two top packages.

 

We loved the idea of the beach wedding; but heard the gazebo is the most private (in any resort). I also looooved the pictures of the beach reception with the hanging lantern lights.

 

Where did you pick?

I've barely scratched the surface on planning this wedding, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

 

HAPPY PLANNING!

Hi Ladies,

 

I thought I would chime in.  The 3G promo is book 5 rooms get the 6th room free (lowest room) but 3 free room max.  If you have more than 20 rooms they try to put you in a new promotion that allows for more free rooms but not at the same ratio as 3G.

 

Also, canadian suppliers have very different promotions and rates.

 

Did you guys book with a travel agent who dealt with sunwing? I think we are getting ripped off! We have been told that after the 16th room we get the 17th free. Everywhere I read or hear, most people get book 11 passengers and get the 12th free. Or like yours book 5 room and get the 6th free.

Hi @@acosta!  We're getting married Dec. 10, 2015!  We haven't picked the ceremony location yet as we aren't 100% sure what will be best, so we'll decide when we get there... which shouldn't be a problem since they don't do multiple ceremonies at the same time.

 

I can't wait to hear all about your planning!!

Hi everyone! Are there any new updates with anyone who has recently gotten married?  I wish this thread was more active, I'd love to hear about everyone's ideas and timeline. 

 

We're officially in our wedding year now, I'm not sure there are things I need to be planning since our wedding is not until December, but it feels so much more real now :)

Hi BreMarie!

I haven't done much planning since late October as Christmas kinda took over my household :D

 

I am getting married at Dreams in October and my fiance and I just booked a vacation there in March for a site visit and to wrap our heads around the wedding locations, and to get a better understanding of what we can do with their offerings (and ultimately how much things will cost).

We hope this visit will help us clear some questions we have, plus we will also visit some other wedding locations (off-site) to see if it's a better fit for us.

THere's a facebook group for brides in Mexico/Cancun and there's three of us at Dreams.

 

Just a reminder that it's against forum rules to post links to other groups on FB!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
