thanks for all the info!  we definitely should meet up for a drink!  it sounds like it will be a very busy wedding week

 

i think we will deliver our own bags, seems silly for $4 to have them delivered.  

 

i was thinking of doing red roses with black ribbon,  what do you think,  i am also doing black ribbon around our cake.

Here's some of what was discussed:

  • White covered chairs are included in the Gold package
  • They have a knife for the cake or if you would prefer to bring your own you can. After the couple cuts the cake, the head server will cut the rest of the cake for the guests
  • In order to get the free wedding (valued at $850) either the couple has to stay in excellence club ocean view room for 7 nights, or have 5 guest rooms booked for 7 nights in any category. Basically you have to have at least 35 room nights booked total.
  • You can have a violinist, flutist, or guitarist at the ceremony instead of having the mariachi band at the cocktail reception.

Thank you so much. That was great information to share. I questioned the chairs also. K

Yes, let's definitely meet up for a drink! I agree with you about the bag delivery. We were planning on doing that but we will be on an excursion with half of our group on Thursday when the other half check in. At least it's not as many people so the cost will be less, but it still irks me!

Red roses with black ribbon will be beautiful! Very elegant! I takeit your colors are black and red?

Where are you having your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception?

Thanks for sharing what was discussed. But as far as I know the white chair covers are included in the setup at no addition cost, no matter what package you have. It's mentioned in the Wedding packages general information document.  Can someone also confirm this who is not using the Gold package?

Also has anyone hired their videographer? Or plan to? I'm thinking about it, maybe the first hour, mainly for the ceremony. I have HD camera, and tripod so we can set it up but I'm sure they would do a better job and are used to the wind.

Yes, the white chair covers are included in all the packages. You can also bring your own decor & the WC will set them up at no additional cost.

 

(I was also on the webinar if anyone else has any questions)

Oh, I remember people mentioning about maybe shipping your items to the resort.

This came up in the webinar and you can but you need to send it to them from Fed-Ex only...

Thanks Sharon99! I would love to bring my own ceremony decorations, like sashes and I'm glad to hear WC will set it up.

 

What about paper lanterns for reception did anyone ask? I think someone mentioned it costs $5 for each paper lantern to be set up.

Sorry - I honestly can't remember if anyone asked about lanterns. I don't think they did but I can't see why they would charge $5 for this and not for anything else.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
