MJones, we are flying out of Winnipeg, and we got a group rate of $1598 taxes already included, which I thought was a really good price!  Although, many of my family members and guests still complained about the price.  I had looked around many of the prices ranged around $1600 plus taxes.
I think that's a great price!! We ended up goin with the colonial for $1850 p/p. The Riviera or White sands were going to cost 2300-2500 p/p!!!! I know march is a busy time of year but the prices still seem quite high. Oh well!

Hi Bre, Jason and I are giving the groomsmen cuff links as part of their gift: overstock.com has a huge variety that might reflect some of their personalities. Also since Jason and his groomsmen are hunters I believe he was also going to find little hunting knives or something.... I've left up to him so it'll probably be June of 2014 before I know for certain. Just another suggestion, and glad I can help. Liana

Thanks so much!! I saw they were going to make that and at that moment it was connected the Thomas'and I answered everything from his. 

 

We have had so much luck! There was one person that won before but decided to reject the prize as she is going to Punta Cana and not to Riviera Maya

Congratulations Carlota!! I tried to win too but was not so lucky.  I'm please to see you won though :)

 

Bre, yes I made the bags myself, I drew on outline first with black felt tipped pen then painted with fabric paints before sewing the embelishments on (the glue does not always hold so well).  The hangers were pretty easy although it id take me two attempts.  I would suggest printing out each name first so you have a guideline for the wire.  I also used pliers for the really tight bends,  The most difficult bit was joining the capital initial letter to the rest of the name.  Because I chose a cursive font the other letters already had the joins in place.  I would definitely give it a try though, just buy a fairly flexible wire (I bought florists wire) so it is easy to bend but will still hold the shape.

 

Like Liana, we have also went for cufflinks as gifts for the groomsmen.  I guess the other alternative is a hipflask which you could have engraved with a message and the date?

 

Thanks for your reassurances Carlota, I have e-mailed again just now but you are probably right that Vanessa is waiting to hear back from someone else.  I'm sure all will be fine.

 

I must go to bed now, it's almost 1am - I started making a 'hliday calendar' to give everyone and got totally carried away!

Thanks Claire!! I think the romantic dinner at the beach is too expensive for us but for free is great. I have sent right now all the details of us by mail. We have asked as well what kind of upgrade it is... But we are happy anyway!! 

 

About Vanessa, if you see tomorrow you have not an answered (I usually receives her mails during the night here in Spain and I see them next morning) if I were you, I would contact her again, just to assure she has received your email.  

 

Good night! I am going to bed as well!!

I wouldn't stress too much. They book 2 weddings a day so if you have your time booked you will be able to get married whereever you want. I guess for dinner you might want to get that booked in but my coordinator told me the same. Who do you have? Mine is Grace...shes been great with getting back to me in a couple days but sonetimes I wish i had Vanessa as she seems very good at English and at offering suggestions. I find it a bit hard to understand Grace...ive heard they are all great when you are there though. I think since they do 2 weddings most days it must be hard to keep everyones straight and i know when my wedding gets closer I want her answering my questions asap!!! Lol not answering someone whos wedding is 9 months away instead of me haha. Most things seem to be able to be picked during meeting at resort before wedding.

 

Does anyone have any info on the actual ceremony? Vows or what they read out? Just curious on what everyone prepares before going?

 

Also,for any past brides...how big was your free bouquet?? Just wondering if its worth ordering bridesmaids bouquets from local flower shops instead of using the resorts.

I have Rocio, but I agree with you, I wish I had Vanessa as well...after having read through the forum, there are many great reviews on Vanessa.  I joined the group on facebook and found the menus, restaurants, listing of prices, florists, readings/ceremony, etc.  So, now we just have to choose what we want and have Rocio book it for us...and I can stress less ;)

So many posts to catch up on ..

 

Liana - Thanks for the website for those silk flowers.. I have checked it out & the prices seem reasonable! I like how you can get stuff customized too .. definitely going to look into that.

Claire - I LOVE your bridesmaids bags .. did you paint them or how did you do those? I am not near crafty enough to do the same but I think they are so cute and love how they are each personalized! Also did you make the hangers yourself too?? That I might be able to do myself .. was going to order from Etsy but if they were easy to do yourself I might have to try that first. I just keep adding more and more stuff that I want to buy/order and its really starting to be expensive so the more $$ I can save the better! haha

Love the idea of the bracelets for the bridesmaids/maid of honor .. question for you ladies what about gifts for the groomsmen?? I have LOTS of stuff that we could get for the girls but am having a hard time figuring out what we can get the guys as a little gift.. any ideas?!

Lauren - love the bridesmaid dresses! Super cute & the color is so nice :) We got our bridesmaid dresses in too .. my sisters is hanging in the closet at my house I will have to upload a picture sometime :) Wishing you a fun weekend in Las Vegas .. I hear the weather there is suuuuuuuper hot right now.. enjoy! you'll be glad for that cabana by the pool and the bottle service haha..

 

Jenn & Claire .. you girls both leave soon. Wanted to wish you good luck with everything .. hope you have a wonderful trip & an amazing wedding day. Cant wait to hear bout the details when you get back! :)

 

Alyn.. that is a good price leaving from Winnipeg! Which travel company is that with?? Also I would talk to Rocio about not being able to book anything until 2 months before .. my wedding is still over 6 months away and a few months ago they emailed me with a bunch of details that I had to fill out in regards to what I wanted for the wedding.

 

I went through Destination Wedding Wish.  They work with Signature Vacations.

Hi Alyn,

 

Depending of the wedding guests you are going to have, you will have also the possibility to make the dinner for free at one of 3 restaurants a-la-carte. I think this are the Mexican, the Brazilian and the Italian. In that case, for choosing the menu, you will have to ask Rocio for the dishes. I only have the menu of the Mexican and in Spanish.... as we are making a dinner for all of our guests there the evening before.

 

 

Un saludo ; )

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
