Does anyone know if we need to get approval for an outside vendor, we want to book Victor Herrera Photography soon, but as we all know the resort is super slow in responding.  We just want to be sure before we put a huge deposit down.

 

On a positive note, I made my hair and make-up appointments at the spa through the website and they have gotten back to me with a confirmation and answers to all my questions within a day!

How far in advance should you book the spa for hair and make-up? Did you book your bridesmaids as well?

I just booked this week and we are not getting married until November, I figured book as early as possible to get what you want.  I did not book my bridesmaids, once I got my confirmation, I sent an e-mail to them to book themselves and to mention that they are with me so they will get a similar time and hopefully be in the same area as me.

I didn't reach Nayeli today because she was working with a large group and out of the office all day; but fortunately I reached someone else in the wedding department and May 4 at 4pm is available so I'm switching my date to May 4, 2013. Any other brides getting married that weekend?

I started booking all things spa in the end of January...about 4 months out. First was booking mine (hair/make-up, nails, trial hair and make-up) via their website and then/now just email back and forth with them. We are planning some extras for our wedding party....the Marine Wellness for all the guys and girls, mani pedi's for all the guys and either nails or hair or make up for the girls. The spa has been AMAZING! They put everything together for us on a spreadsheet with prices almost immediately. I also have a few guests who want their hair done and they just told me a few weeks ago. They were able to get them all in, and they will be charging them separately. With the gold package we get 15% off so putting it all on 1 bill, even if you're not paying for it all might be better for your bridesmaids wallets...just an idea.

Also, make sure you book your couples massage if you are getting one with your package! :) And timing for me worked out best to do my trial hair and make-up on Wednesday.

Here's how the timing works for a Saturday wedding- 5:30 ceremony(where guests get there at 5):

Nails: They suggest Friday

Hair:Bridesmaids go first in groups of 3 at noon (depends how many you have doing their hair) I go at 1pm, my Mother is in at 1:30pm, guests go in at 3.

Here's our "timeline" we did for them.....

Something else to think about... If you are delivering OOT bags to the rooms, they get delivered at turn down service. We have a welcome letter and timeline in the bag. We have our welcome cocktails on Thursday night when most people get in, which means they wouldn't see where they're supposed to meet us that night if they are already out for dinner. Sooooo, we found out we can do a small check in card that the front desk can give them, this way they know where to meet us that night. We also found that not as many people REALLY look at the website details as much as you think, so this was a must for us!

Here's what we had done:

The check In Card-

The Timeline for all guests-this will be in the OOT bag-

Our Welcome letter-

These are  the proofs, so the paper will make it pop, but just wanted to give you guys an idea. If anyone is interested in seeing our menus, favor cards, do not disturb sign, etc. let me know and I'll post them. :)

    • 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?
