    Louise Daly is the new WC and is from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I think she is going to be great. I resent an email that I urgently needed a response on (and had sent 2x before with no response) and she emailed me back within about 10 minutes, then called me on the phone. I had a whole list of questions that I had been waiting for months on answers and she responded within a week as she promised. I sent her sample pics of flowers arrangements and cake we hoped to have and she is taking care of getting it together. I think she'll be a breathe of fresh air on the wedding side of things there...hopefully she doesn't get too bogged down since they work longer hours than what many Canadians/Americans are used to (something she mentioned will take getting used to)...she did say however that she has an assistant so that's great!

      We sent our invites out last week - the second one we got back was a decline, but with NO NAME! so the hunt is on! It's really driving me nuts.

       

      How is everyone's planning going?  I have been busy helping people book. FI's mom is driving me insane! She keeps asking for help, but then once I find stuff, she's like "oh I still have to talk to so and so" even though this back and forth has been going on for months!  We did get a TA to help avoid all this, but she kinda sucks, so once again it's on us!

      we put numbers on ours so if they were sent back w/o a name, we would be able to figure it out. just a tip for the future/future brides.

          The email for Louise is the same as Rebeca's was (weddings.drepv@dreamsresorts.com). She very likely hasn't responded as they are super busy this time of year (the next 2-3 months I think are probably some of the busiest) and are working on weddings in order of priority (first come, first serve kind of thing). If there is something you need a response on that can't wait till say the new year then put "URGENT" in your subject line. When I did that Louise responded right away, but only do if absolutely necessary since they really are busy. As far as your fiance is concerned try contacting Patricia Romo (patty-weddings@hotmail.com with www.vallartaincredibleweddings.com) to inquire. We are having a legal ceremony in PV and she is the one coordinating the JP and all the details such as blood tests, etc, so she may be able to give you some guidance on your situation. Hope this helps!!

                Congrats Merve and Joy!  Your wedding looked beautiful!  Did you use the photographer from the resort's ultimate package and did you like their work?

                    I thought I should mention a few things; I had Bianca do my hair at the salon and I used the resort photographer.  Bianca did an AWESOME job of my hair as well as my mom's and one other bridesmaid.  She was great and super fast!

                     

                    The photographer's name was Chrissy or something like that and she took some REALLY awesome shots of me and Shane.  However, there were important shots that I know she took (we even have pictures of her TAKING the pictures) but they were missing when I went to pick out my 36 (we had the middle package).  She didn't have any of me and my dad walking down or any of just me and my sister.  I could understand if a few didn't turn out but she was snapping a lot!  I picked my 36 and they gave me a CD with those pics on them, then they mail you an album..... haven't got mine yet but it's only been about 3 weeks.  It's like $600 to get the CD of ALL your pics.

                     

                    A couple other things:

                     

                    Me and Shane did the symbolic ceremony and I brought my entire script.  Lucy was great and had no problem reading it.  We signed a certificate after and totally forgot to grab it.  Would have been a nice keepsake.

                     

                    We bought a Bose sound system for $450 to use for the reception and ceremony but when we tested it the night before, it was not nearly loud enough with the waves crashing in the background.  We rented the sound system for $300 or $350 whatever it was.  We did use the Bose for the song I walked down to though which saved us from renting a second set of speakers for $170.  We didn't have a mic but and had 33 guests so I'm pretty sure people at the back couldn't hear anything.  Now that I look back we could have had people way closer to us; the chairs started quiet a ways back.  That might have solved it.

                     

                    Went to the sports bar after and had to wait like 20 minutes til they started music but we had a blast.  They wouldn't play our iPod but they played good music. I actually think another bride beat me to the iPod thing. There was another wedding the same night on the beach but there were only about 5 of them in the sports bar as compared to 35 of us.

                     

                    That's all I can think of for now!

                      Aprilmay - so you don't think the Bose will work for the reception at las Palmas? That was our idea. Not sure where you had your reception.  We just can't decide what to do!!

                      I'm also glad that Lucy was able to just read what you brought. Do you think it was obvious it was not legal (to your guests I mean). Did you still do vows and stuff? Were you able to contact her before you arrived?

                       

                      Thanks!
