Hey ladies

Finally back from my wedding at GSP and let me tell you, Emma doesn't  know what she's talking about. I knew her price list better than she did. My wedding would have been a nightmare if it wasn't for 3 of my friends. She gives general explanation, no details, she was trying to charge 600$ me for the CD player at the ceremony. She refused to allow us on the beach for a semi-private unless I took the bar for 2 hours (25$ per person even though the site claims it's 10 or 15$ per person). She didn't even ask for our marriage licence since we got married in Canada first.

They basically tell you yes,yes,yes when you befor you get there and then it's: No, you never confirmed with me. Ladies keep your e-mail, I'd even suggest to print them out and bring them with u when u get there.

 

The wedding itself was wonderful, since none of the guests knew how the ceremony and reception were suppose to be, it was pretty transparent to them. But I"m pretty sure Emma willnot last long as their WP.

Oh wow that really freaks me out!! Our wedding is December 1st.  I'm going to try and reach her by phone tomorrow and figure something out. I find it so hard to communicate by email, I ask 4 questions and they only seem to answer 1!  I was told that we would have to pay for a sound system on the beach and set up but not for food, I was wondering if we could have reception only at the chillout lounge.  I can't believe how often the wedding planners change! It's so unnerving...

ChristaMichelle and Tammy - I agree with you regarding the vows can we add our own if we are getting legally married????

 

Kabee55 - OMG I'm getting worried now my wedding is in 5 weeks and I haven't heard from the wedding co-ordinator e-mailed them last week so make sure they have everything they need and still waiting for a reply... sad.gif

 

Smokey82 - I haven;t used the onsite photographer I've booked Claudia Rodrieguez photography, saw some reviews on here had a look at her website and loved her work so have booked, thought the prices were reasonable and also booked the videographer through her, hope this helps

So I have since found out that my new coordinator has changed yet again, and I have to send all my information for the third time. The good news is, is that I am since finding out all of this new information and it looks like I might be making some changes. 

 

Originally I though that you could use the reception dinner from your package another night (welcome dinner, rehearsal dinner) and now I am being told that that is not possible, and that if you don't use it your wedding night it is forfeited. Has anyone else been given conflicting information? We are holding our reception for 43 people at the Chill Out Club so we won't be using the dinner in the package at all. Now I feel that the cost of the package is overpriced as I am not using a big chunk of the costs. 

 

I am also looking into getting married legally here, in Canada, opposed to there as it will save us some money and more importantly, we can use our own ceremony script (i hope, still looking into this). 

 

With all this being said, I was hoping to find out from the rest of you beautiful brides ... What are you doing for your packages? I am now thinking of choosing the 800.00 package and adding all the extras on that I want. I am not sure if it works out better that way as I am still trying to research it all. Has anyone else been through this process already or does anyone have an additional cost price list???

 

I feel like there is a better way to do this and I just don't know what it is at this point. 

 

How are you doing with your planning Sam and takelly? I hope things are going smoothly. :)

one week till i will be at the hotel. Emma has emailed me twice so far today. All of my plans have changed. When i spoke to her on the phone she had told me that i could do a beach party for 30 people. Now she told me the gala room is also 40 people minimum. She also sent me a price list to pay for the room to have the reception after if we are not doing gala...It starts at 300 to 1000 just for the rental. We have decided on mamma mia and then doing a beach party from 8 to 10. The dj is 832 for 4 hours even if we jst need him for two hours. If we want the audio system it is 600. Im very anxious and nervous about how this will turn out because we are never on the same page and the cost are always different.

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • 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?
