Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides Post Here!

Recommended Posts

WHAT? Juan Navarro is not the photographer? I just talked to Yamina a couple of weeks ago and was told he is the photographer. I really liked him! Hopefully the new one will be just as good, or I may end up paying the fee to bring him in.

 

Congrats to all the new brides on here! It's really exciting!

 

I am leaving to go to the Excellence in 2.5 weeks! My maid of honor and I are going for the site inspection and to meet Yamina. I am so excited to get to see the resort and to get to talk to Yamina. :)

I may just use Del Sol now...

Hi Ladies!

 

I just returned from EPM on Saturday.  My boyfriend proposed while we were on vacation and we got to see a few weddings while we were there.  I immediately decided that I wanted to get married at EPM.  I have requested my date from Yamina but haven't heard back yet.  Crossing my fingers for April 6th, 2012 at 5pm!  Is it true that you need to book your room to confirm your date?  I'm a little worried about that because the only site that I can find to book the room so far in advance is the EPM site, and their prices are WAY higher than what I paid for this past trip.

 

Can't wait to start planning!!

We got married there Feb. 19, 2011 and Juan was no longer the house photographer, They now use a company called Blue lens, They were great to work with and the pictures were great, any questions let me know.

 Thanks for that info alwayssunny! Good to hear that you had a good experience with them. I have emailed Yamina, waiting to see if she can give me some examples of their work. I'd like to check them out before we use them blush2.gif

Thanks for the info alwayssunny. Odd that I was emailing Yamina about this in March. I bet the ratespricing packages are the same & its just a different vendor.

 

IliaPSU Congratulations! Yes, you need to put a deposit on your room for confirmation and I used one of Tammy's TAs! Definitely recommend them!

The travel agent I used said she would rebook us if the rates dropped before our date. You should be able to work something similar out. I just married there last month and Im still floating on a cloud :)

Ladies,

 

Wow I have less than two months until my wedding date. It is so close, I can almost feel the sand between my toes! I got an email from Yamina today stating that we need to decide on cake, menu, flowers and decor at least one month before the wedding starts. I'm having a few issues and I'll be asking Yamina as well, but I thought I'd check with the wealth of knowledge available on this site.

1. She sent us a bunch of options for cake style but nothing about flavors. Does anyone have cake flavor info to share?

2. I'm having a lot of trouble deciding on flowers and decor based on the photos. For brides that have already been married here or have already made these decisions, did you pick straight from the options she gave or did you send her ideas of your own?

3. For the gold menu options there are two entrees listed per menu. Am I to understand that each guest receives two entrees or is this an either/or sort of deal?

Any tips from brides who have already made these choices would be greatly appreciated!

    • 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?
