Eight weeks to go!

Downloaded more music last nite, I'm finding that to be the biggest challenge.

Have all the goodies for the welcome bags.

Just have to print the room lists and menus.

Can wait!

  • Jeanetta H- You can bring in an outside photographer for an additional cost, even though the package documents from the resort say that outside photographers are prohibited. For 2013 it was a $300 vendor fee and $60 each for a day pass. So for our photographer with a second shooter we ended up paying $420 in addition to the package we purchased from our photographer. Hope this helps :-)

Hi guys! I was just wondering if any of you booked la petite creperie for your reception??? Is it true it's 3500 dollars extra on top of the wedding package??? Hello!! I have my wedding booked for June 7th,2014 and I found out through Ocean Coral that it's $1000 extra to have your reception at the Petit Creperie....it's a good chunk of change but it's definitely better than $3500! Whew! I also read about other brides saving money on their packages if they were not using something that was included in their package (like doing your own hair, or the marriage fees if you are having a symbolic ceremony). I was told I could reserve the Petit Creperie for my date and once I do my site visit I can always change my mind! Does anyone on here have any opinions on the best location for the reception?

I haven't yet! We're just starting to do all our planning! We have a few friends coming with their professional cameras so we'll probably just use the resort photographer with a fairly small package! Have you done any research for a DJ? Music is huge on our list!

We booked La Petite Creperie for our reception on Friday, May 17, 2013.  The restaurant is normally open on Fridays (as of right now anyway, who knows, these things change...).  Since they had to close to restaurant for our evening reception (6 -10 PM), they charged us an additional $2,000 to rent the restaurant to make up for "lost business." The restaurant holds 60 people, and our group totaled 43 guests, so La Petite Creperie was just the perfect size.  We are glad that we booked it.  It is a beautiful location.

    • 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.
