I read through all 92 pages of this thread and I found that some brides weren't happy with their hair or makeup. Also I was thinking I really wanted airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup last about 16 hours. I had this done for my engagement pics and I loved it. Also just from reading other reviews from other hotels it's seems like a mix of other resort spas as well as Secrets. --- I am here: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=29.980761,-95.182898

We're deciding between the Gazebo terrace and the Baracuda terrace for the reception. We're doing the ceremony at the Gazebo. We're expecting 30-40 guests. Any suggestions??

Has anyone used the resort DJ? - any thoughts on that?

Has anyone had their reception on the beach?? I have not seen a lot of people on here talk about a reception on the beach..

My FI and I are almost officially booked! I just need to send Cecelia the cc info for deposit tomorrow. We have our flights and rooms booked now though!

 

I really would like to do the airbrush. I haven't looked into the cost of that, or where to do it at. Hmmmm...I just don't know. I went and looked at ideas for centerpieces tonight. I am pretty sure I am going to do my own. Does anyone know if there are any centerpieces for the tables at the cocktail hour that are included? Or do they need to be purchased from the hotel. I was a little confused by that.

 

@brideRN- We are looking at using Juan also. I emailed him yesterday. We def need to upgrade our package from what is included though. I looked at his site, and I love his photos. we are trying to figure out which package we would upgrade to.

We aren't using a DJ though, just the sound equipment.

@beachbride2013...The styling Trio is who i've been in contact with to maybe do my hair and makeup, they also do air brush makeup.  

www.stylingtriorivieramaya.com  I'm not sure about the centerpieces for the tables at the cocktail hour, I think they just put candles out..  I love Juan's pictures..and are also going to upgrade his package.  I would ideally like him there a little before the wedding starts to maybe right before the reception ends.  So like 6 hours I guess?

Hi fellow brides.  We are getting married at SMB May 2012!  Are your guests all staying at the resort?  Or are some guests finding outside accommodations and coming just on the day of the wedding?  From the responses we have been getting, I think everyone is finding outside accommodations.  It makes it hard figuring out which wedding package to get.  Also, we will need to get a day pass for guests not staying at the resort to attend the wedding.  Does anyone have experience with how that works?  Excited, but starting to run into some headaches of a destination wedding. =T

Thanks, I usually do my own hair for events like this and I might do that because I will have control of it. I want to do a practice up do but not sure if they do that.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
