Hi JND,

Rocio emailed me on Monday to confirm the date then said that I needed to now send in my deposit. It's 300 (US). She sent the forms to my travel agent. I need to fill it out then email or fax it to her. If you want, PM me your email and I will forward it to you.

Thanks Ella! I just received the email with the forms. Which package did you ladies go with? I am thinking the diamond so that I can have the "upgraded" flowers and dress steaming. It 300 more. Do you think its worth it?

I can't remember the name of the package but it wasn't the diamond one or the renewal of vows... is it crystal?  Anyways... it's the one at 2000$.   To me, the upgraded flowers weren't needed since we got all of our flowers (except the ceremony table centerpiece) from an external vendor.  Plus, Rocio didn't charge us for getting both of my dresses steamed, and my fiance's suit... considering we were already spending so much $$$ at the resort, she gave it to us for free.

We did the top one (can't remember the name), for the renewal of the vows.  We had decided to get married in the States ahead of time, because the States wouldn't recognize the marriage down there, unless we did a bunch of paperwork through the State Dept.  It was much cheaper and easier for us, because we didn't have to go the four business days ahead of schedule (which was good because we would have had to leave on Easter) and we didn't have to have any guests (witnesses) go the four days ahead either.  Also, because our package was the top one for the renewal of the vows our dress and suit steaming was included!

 

The only extra flowers we got were for the BM, GM, and my father.  We made the bouquets for the BMaids and brought them...  We were able to take the flowers from the ceremony to the reception and then also gave us rose petals on the tables and battery operated candles for the tables.  We didn't bring any extra decorations (outside of the name cards), and honestly, we didn't need them.  We only sat at the tables for dinner and then we were between the dance floor and the bar!!

 

They also turned the red carpet (for the ceremony) into rose petals (to match our colors), and then added purple and orange lilies to the cake, free of charge.

Just had to share that we just received our legal paperwork back from Rocio this week!!!  I was scared with the talk about the law changing... but everything went smoothly and we'll be able to legalize the wedding here, in Canada.  It took almost 7 weeks to get our document (apostille?), which isn't so bad.  Rocio had said it would take 6-8 weeks.  YAY!  :D :D :D

Gosh, it's SUCH a relief!!!!  I was scared we wouldn't get it... especially since Rocio had not mentionned anything about the law changing when we were there and when I asked her about it (once I had read about it here on the forum), she didn't really have anything to say about it. 

 

No worries about the message, EllaBaja! Take your time ;)

 

Ohhhh... can I please take 2 minutes of you guy's time and vent?  I still haven't received my pictures :( :( :(  Ok, I'm over-reacting since it's suppose to take 6-8 weeks before we receive our pictures... and today is our 7-week wedding anniversary (lol).  BUT... when I asked Claudia how long it would take, she said we should receive them the last week of April or first week of May.  Last week, I still hadn't heard from her so I emailed her (again!).  She then said we should get them early this week.  Well, it's Thursday and still no pictures. I don't want to harass her so I'll just wait, but I just can't waaaaaait anymore! It's driving me nuts, I want my pictures now.

 

Ok, vent over :)  I feel much better now! Pheww! :)

Steph, I would feel the same way!!  I would probably still harass her if it was me!!  You should have them by now!!!!  Maybe the more you harass her the quicker she'll get them to you because she'll get sick of you!!!  Haha!  I couldn't imagine being you right now, it's been SO long since your wedding...well...long enough for the photos to come back!!

Alright, you're a bad influence, I just emailed her again, hahahaha! ;)

 

See... I don't want to harass her TOO much... I'm scared that she's not done and we'll just be like, ''Oh, she wants her pictures right away, screw the last 100 we had to work on'', kinda thing... I want them now, but I don't want to loose any quality or quantity...
 

Let's just hope I get them soon!!!!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
