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

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
