Yes, your right..I know that it will all work out and everything will be great. I think that we al ljust get so stressed because we have no control over anything because its in Mexico. I know that there might be a few bumps along the way and even when we get there, but at the end of the day its going to be wonderful.  For my decorations I have an outside vendor doing my flowers and decorating the receprtion for me, and she isnt too badly priced. You just send her your vison of what your looking for and she will give you a quote. I had a gf of mine use her for her decorations and she said she was wonderful. Just a thought instead of you guys bringing everything down yourselfs. Im also trying to have a welcome dinner night and use our dinner that is included in our weding package, but i was just told that ne more that 50 pp we cant do it, so now im thinking of using it the night before the wedding as a rehearsal dinner for the bride party and family, and this way the other guests wont feel too left out. Where are you having your cocktail hour?

Everyone always says in this forum that they go their stressed but everything turns out good. We arent stressed out at all. Just kind of asking questions as we go. The bridesmaid dresses are yellow so we wanted to have some sort of yellow decoration to go with it and they said they dont have it so they suggested that we should bring our own stuff. Glad that came up

We decided on the beach reception for 31 people...85 per person with open bar...cake is not included it is extra 140...dj...832. told her that we dont want to pay for the extra champagne and she said that is fine. She also told me that to have the ceremony on the beach it is extra!!! so she said that she will send me prices. Is everyone getting married in the gazebo? anyone opting for the yuppa?

Hi Danielle, 

 

Who are you using for your decorations and flowers. I really don't like the options that the resort has. May I ask how much they are charging and whether or not the resort is charging you extra for having an outside vendor come in. My wedding is in 7 weeks and I need to start figuring these things out. HELP!!

Hi Samantha, 

 

I am just starting to figure out all these details. What are you doing for flowers and decorations? I am just finishing my ceremony script so I can do up my programs. What colors are you using, I am using navy blue and fusia. I just picked up some table runners and chair sashes for 60.00, it was a great deal. Things are starting to come together. Going to order my cake topper soon. Ordered my favors, I am using personalized stemless wineglasses and having them shipped to the resort. I just hope they get there ok and don't get lost. Has anyone else heard of doing this?? Sam, who are you using to ship your wedding dress??? I feel so lost these days and I think I'm falling behind. I can't believe how fast time is going. Good luck, hope to see you there.

Hi hun - You don't sound lost you sound organised!!!!!  For flowers I have picked from the resort and they decorate the gazebo with the same flowers.... My colour is topaz blue - more like turqoise.....  For favours I have ordered personalised fans for the women and thinking of hankerchiefs for the men.. Also ordered little blue boxes with silver chocolate harts inside.... We are only having a small wedding out in Mexico having a party when we get back... For my dress I have ordered a box (with a handle) from lifememoriesbox.co.uk it's sized for hand luggage and they decorate it in your wedding colours and also personalise it with your name, wedding date and resort,  It looks fab.... Don't know if they deliver outside the UK though....
 

Definately hope to see you there.... Can't believe how quickly time is going...... x

Hi Ladies,

 

My fiance and I are currently still in the process of deciding on a resort for our DW for June 2012, but are pretty sold on GSP so far. I have the PDF with all of the wedding package descriptions and costs, but I am wondering if anyone has a more comprehensive list of additional costs that they could send me. (ie. how much do they charge for add ons such as DJ, flowers, decorations) As well, how flexible are they with the time of day that you can have your wedding ceremony? I would really like to do a sunset ceremony, but I am worried that they only book weddings at specific times. Any info that you could pass along on this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks so much!

 

Emily

I am using flowers by julieta. I felt the same way with using the resorts decor. They dont really have much. Julieta is actually not to badly priced. I am getting her to decorate 6 tables and the head table with the vases, (flowers in water) centerpeices and candles and lighting up under each table to give it a romatic feel in the room, she is also doing my flowers and the BM and the groomsman boutonniers and she is charging about $1000. So you just tell her your vison of what you want and she will give you a quote. I had a friend use her and she said that she was great. Her email is: floresjulieta@prodigy.net.mx   Shoot her an email and see if her prices work for you.

Let me know what she says.

Please come back and let us know how it all went. I am getting married in 3 weeks and dont even have a contract written up!

    • 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.
