The only time we needed the bug spray was on the sports bar terrace for the cocktail party.  La Laguna was fine.  It was a little windy so a wrap for later would be a good idea.

We were able to remove our wristbands the day of the wedding.  We had to hang on to them so we could go the next day to the front desk and turn them in for new ones.  We just had to sign a paper when we got the new ones.

An OOT bag means an "Out of Town" bag. I also had NO idea what it stood for when I first joined this forum.  Some brides who are getting married away from where they live normally (destination brides :)) will put together bags for their guests including in them things that may be useful during the time they spend away for the wedding. For example, in mine I am putting small things like lip balm with SPF, bandages for cuts and scrapes, aloe, candy, Sudoku or Word Search game books, a welcome booklet that has information about the week and a thank-you note for coming, towel clips to hold beach towels on chairs, a holder that the guests can use for their room key or their tip money, playing cards, gum..... little things like that, nothing too fancy. They are not a necessity at all - some people choose to do it and others do not. I thought it would be a nice touch.

For mine, I bought plain bags and I ironed on a simple design on the bags that are going to most of our guests. For the bridesmaids, maid of honour (my sister) and for my mom and Tyrel's mom I made a special design that I ironed on, but the bags will have a couple of different things in them, like the necklaces I got for the girls, and whatever gift I get for the parents - I haven't decided yet.   I hope that helps explain it a bit for you! 

 

I do hope that I get to meet you!  Wouldnâ€t that be so crazy!?  You are leaving on the day of our wedding so I will make sure to post pictures here when we return.  Thank you for the advice from Trip Advisor about the bracelets.  That makes me feel better because I hadnâ€t even thought about how awkward that would look in pictures! 

 

Two final things, hello to Heather from Ontario (my ‘home†forever) and omg Mikeycelle you are leaving like, tomorrow!!!!!  Best wishes to you I know you will be an absolutely beautiful bride!!  I canâ€t wait to see pictures and hear about how perfect your day was!!!  Congratulations and enjoy every second!

Good luck Maybride2013 and Mikeycelle, have a totally amazing time!

 

 

Hello Lauren!

Thanks so much for the explanation about the OOT bags! It really is a nice touch for them. Are you giving to them some days before leaving the States or at their arrival to the resort?

 

 

 

Maybride2013!! I wish you the best of luck and I am sure you are going to have the best day of your life!! I am really sure that weddings at GP are wonderful!! We wait your review at your return. Meanwhile, enjoy your days and the beautiful Riviera Maya!!

 

 

 

Claire, your idea is great. Before reading your post I had written to Vanessa asking her which other possibility we could have to make something on the beach in our wedding day. She answered me explaining me that after our dinner at La Laguna, we could make a party with cocktails at Las Rocas Bar. The sand is the floor.  I think is a great idea!! We could dance there while a waiter serves cocktails... I really love the idea and I love Las Rocas area.

 

Here are the pics that Vanessa sent me in her mail. Some are a little bit dark but to have an idea are good.

Hi Carlota!

 

I can't see the pictures that Vanessa sent you.  :(  But she did send me a few of Las Rocas before so maybe the were the same.  I think it will be a great party. 

 

I will be bringing the OOT bags with me from Canada and put them together at the resort.  We are arriving 2 days before our guests so Vanessa will hand them out to the guests rooms when they arrive.  It will cost $2 per room for them to hand them out but otherwise Tyrel and I would have to wait in the lobby all day to give them to our guests.  I think it will be nice for them to just have it waiting in the room as a surprise.  :)

    • 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.
