Sorry, I meant to ask you this on my last post. Did you have your hair & makeup done at the spa? Look gorgeous! Was your bouquet flowers part of the package? Could you choose those flowers? They are the colors I want.

Holy cow your dress is amazing and you look like a superstar in it!  When I was looking at photos of dresses my absolute favorite was a gown by Marchesa which was 100,000 UK Pounds and I never was able to find another one which did it any justice until I saw photos of yours!  So jealous!!!  It's too late for me, but I would still like to know who made it.  Your taste is impeccable :)

Thanks!!
I did my own makeup...and with my hair, I curled it with a curling wand myself, and then I had the hair stylist at the spa pin it all up for me and add the flower as a finishing touch. Unfortunately, my hair flower broke off at the stem right after the ceremony because the hair pin clipped away at it.

 

Yes, my bouquet flowers were apart of the package. I can't remember the exact # of the bouquet that I went with, but I had them add in some coral roses to match the bridesmaids bouquets. If you've received a list of bouquet selections, these were the ones that were pictured inside a basket. Hope that helps! msnwink.gif

WOW.. I haven't been on here in awhile because I have been busy with moving.. but what I have read on here is NOT what I was hoping for! I am a little concerned now because I just put a deposit down on our photographer last week!! (Juan Navarro)

I sent EPM an email hoping to get a contract for our weddding now and double checking that everything is secured and ok with using him. I will be GREATLY disappointed if I can't. I wasn't crazy about the in house photographer and Juan has been so nice and easy to deal with.. his photos are WONDERFUL.

 

I know that it takes awhile to get a response from them..especially with it being peak wedding season.  I guess I will just wait with my fingers crossed!

Brennas, We've confirmed at this point that it an issue with those 2 studio's. From the conversations we've been having you should be fine to use Juan Navarro. I believe another bride on here is also using him & has double checked it with them. Good luck getting a contract!

Just wanted to update on our drama with EPM, they have decided to alow us to maintain our contract with Del Sol. we were very close to looking into a new location, so it's a huge relief not to be on the phone with each of my guests explaining a resort change! Looking forward to beginning our planning with Ileana at his point & really hoping that this is finally behind us & we can move forward with the experience we were hoping for.

 

Anyone have any tips on what we should be trying to plan out with Ileana? I have NO idea what I'm doing smile105.gif

Ladies, we just wanted to pass along that Excellence has informed us they will be allowing us to use Del Sol for our wedding.  Unfortunately for those of you who are early in the planning stages, this is a single exception for us right now and not a policy change.  For those of you who have booked Del Sol or La Luna already and are staying at an Excellence resort, keep on them! 


The best advice I can give is to not back down.  Be willing to change your resort, make sure they are aware of that risk and be willing to follow through.  Even after we were done, we still considered changing resorts for the frustration and hassle that Excellence had put us through, but because so many of our guests had booked and we are so close to our date, we found ourselves in an apples to oranges comparisons of suites and wedding packages between resorts.  There was too likely a risk our guests and ourselves would be paying more and we did not want to put our families through that, even though they were supportive of any decision we made.  In the end, we did change our stay at Excellence from 10 days to 7, and are spending the final 3 days at Royal Playa del Carmen.  We had no intention of staying at EPM after our last guest had left.

 

This does show that Excellence will bend on this policy if you fight.  If enough people fight it, they'll do more than bend, it'll eventually break!

 

And we have to thank Del Sol and Beach Bum Vacations for everything.  They've been incredibly supportive of us and committed to us, not their bottom line or their own best interests as Excellence has been. thatswck.gif

    • 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?
