    well, look on the positive side - at least you tried it on, and your seamstress can fix it for you, so on the day, your guests will be none-the-wiser! good luck with it, but I have no doubts it will all work out for you perfectly too.

    and the car is a bummer, but you will be fine :) can someone lend you there car to do your running around in, even if it's just for a couple of days?

    what time do you land in Cancun? our ceremony is at 4pm....if you're there in time, or any time after that, feel free to pop along and say hi! would be great to meet you

    OMG - FI has been going insane about us not having heard from Ana for so long! I too sent an email about 3 weeks ago and didn't have a response so last week I sent it again (thinking maybe it hadn't got through to her) but I've had no response. and I have read receipts on my emails and she's not read either of them. FI is mega stressing me out with this. he's even suggested calling the hotel to find out what's happened, but it would probably cost us the price of our wedding to do that from over here!!

    what's your next plan of action? I really need to hear from her before we go or FI might self-destruct, or I might end up killing him! whichever comes first lol

    but I definitely think it's gone past the stage of being polite and waiting for an answer. I mean, she could have left, or be off sick and no-ones picked up her work - I'm not blaming her until I know why we haven't heard back as she could be sick or something. but I just need to know from someone at the hotel that she's still there and everything is ok for our wedding!! HELP!!!

    xx
    OMG I was almost glad that it's not just me she's not responding too.....but now I'm a little bothered by the fact that you have not heard from her either. Very bothered! Worried a little..... She's always been slow at responding, and I know this is the start of wedding season so she's probably really busy with weddings, but it is so important for her to get back to us! I also wanted an invoice and confirmation of prices we've discused over the past year so we dont get there and have any surprises! Also, my guests are interested in the Privilege package and keep asking about it and the cost. I had also asked her about that. My guests keep asking me if I've heard from her about it. Hmmm....let's try not to panick. It is a busy time..and there have been times in the past where shes taken a week and a half to respond. I just thought that since our dates are coming up fast, that she would be contacting us more frequently. ?

    I think I'm arriving around 2 in Cancun? So hopefully I'll see you in your gown!! :)

      haha i was the same....I was trying to stay calm until you said you hadn't heard from her either!!

      would it cost you the same to call the hotel as it would be? (sorry, I'm very ignorant when it comes to international calling, other than that it's expensive!!)

      and sorry everyone else.....

        Honestly I have no clue how much it would cost. I'll look into it though!

          Yeah I went to my normal hairdresser here in the UK as she knows my hair so well and what does and doesn't suit me and I basically gave her a few ideas I'd had/seen and she went from there! we took photos throughout the process in case they need to see how we got to the end result...now I just need to be organised and actually print them out! All the reviews I've read on OCT is that they don't speak great English (and I don't speak any spanish!!) but that they are great at recreating from photos. I would definitely recommend doing it - I feel so much better and felt like a proper princess having mine done.

          oh yes, I was mega stressed last week! (didn't hide it that well then! lol) it all felt really close and there was still quite a few things to do, but we got most of them done this weekend so I feel much much better thank you :) all (haha 'all'!!) I've got left to do is sort out my clothes, wash them all and pack them! easy! hahaha (I am secretly really worrying about this but I did start last night so it's getting there) :)

          we fly out on Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!! (2nd May)....I can't believe it's THIS WEEK!!! and we get married NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!! arrrgggghhhhh
          Hey Kaite!

          I am seriously considering doing the same. I have been concerned about the hairdressers there and what if I don't like it... having a trial and pictures done ahead of time is a great idea!

          I'm glad you got most of your things done! The last thing you need is to be extra stressed before you leave THIS WEEKEND! :) How long have you been counting down for?

          Just curious... are you planning on using the hotel photographer?

          Whit :)

          P.S. I emailed Fiona about 4 weeks ago about something and haven't had a response either. I haven't been stressing because I still have time... but I hope you gets back to you ladies soon!!!

            hey Whit,

            We got engaged late February 2009 (when we were on holiday in Mexico!). At the time we didn't start planning as I was in the process of being made redundant, but as soon as I had my first week in my new job, we booked it all! So we've been planning for about 10/11 months.

            how about you?

            regarding the photog, we decided to bring someone in and stomach the vendor fee (it's actually a very reasonable vendor fee when you look at what some other hotels charge - can be double!). We're using Lidya Solemidt and she has been very flexible in coming up with a package to suit us and our budget. I love her pics and can't wait for her to photograph our wedding and TTD!

            and thanks, Krystal heard from Ana on Tuesday in the end and I heard from Ana yesterday/this morning. so at least we know she's still alive!

              Katie!!! Beautiful pics...you will be such a gorgeous bride! It is coming up so quickly for you! Have a wonderful trip and enjoy every minute :)

              A cab to PLaya del Carmen or Cancun costs about $30 or 300 pesos.You can fanagle on the way back but from the hotel it is a standard rate because of hotel zone.

              I just got an email from Ana yesterday so I hope some of you brides will hear from her too. I can't imagine waiting that long for a response. Hang in there!

                Hey Katie!

                We got engaged on December 4th. Had the Wedding booked and my dress picked by mid January... which was when the countdown started! lol Seems like sooo long ago... but its been less than 5 months!

                You have been counting down for a pretty long time! Only couple days until you leave now! I hope you have an amazing time, and it is everything you have ever wanted! I can't wait to see the pics when you get back! lol :)

                  Hey Whit,
                  What website did you use to get all of you wedding information, and what email did you use to get a hold of your wedding coordinator? I've gone through two different email addresses trying to reach this place and haven't had a reply back from either and its been over 3 weeks :S And the websites I've found don't have any information on their wedding packages....

                    Hey!

                    I have a great travel agent who has helped me with everything! She contacted the resort and Ana from the start, and still does when I have any questions/concerns. The email address that she has for Ana is... weddings.mex@oceanhotels.net. Have you tried that one?

                    There are packages offered through the resort, however we went with a package through a Canadian company (Transat Holidays & Noltours) instead. There are a few upgrades/additional things that we are getting through the resort but for the most part our package includes everything we want.

                    Ana did send me the list of packages that they have to offer, if you want I can scan and email you them? I also have some other info from the resort... including decor, flowers, upgrades, etc.

                    Where are you in your plans so far? Do you have a wedding date set or in mind?

                    Let me know if you have any other questions!

                    Whit :)

                      Hola fellow OCT brides!

                      I've just confirmed the date for our big day - JANUARY 20, 2011 - and am more excited then I thought possible! Amber I saw the album you posted with your wedding pics and I cannot thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to dream about how beautiful my day could be. I ABSOLUTELY love your bouquet and have to ask if it was amongst the options that Ana offered? I haven't even been given any of the options yet from Ana yet, my travel agent with Marlin travel just set the date last Friday, but hopefully this week I'll have a better idea of what my choices are so if any of you have suggestions/recommendations to share I would love to hear (read) them.

                      Thanks in advance ladies,
                      Lisa
