We got the groomsmen shirts from Haband. They were awesome and only $12.99!!!! We couldn't believe it!! Here is the bad news, I looked recently and couldn't find them on there. You could try calling and asking about them. They were perfect and almost free.

Also, FI saw your Hubbys suit and he is in love with it. Who designed it or where was it purchased from.

Hi Sylvia! Your hair looks smokin hott!! I don't know how to post the video!!! Its too private to post on youtube-- any ideas? I would definitely get the video over the gazebo drapery- you'll have the video your whole life. I still cry every time I watch it-- you will not even remember the drapery.

 

The suit was a steal too-- he got it on Amazon for $152 after shipping and it looks like its cheaper now-- good news, apparently you'll save $1,104 on the suit and get it for $95. liar.gif Amazon.com: Beautiful & Brand New Italian Linen Mens Suit in White ~~ Hand Tailored for Perfect Fit 3 Button Suits ~~ Perfect for Cruise , Wedding , Summer: Apparel. It looks a little cheese-y in the pic online but it looked great when he got it. He had the shirt already, it was from Saks but a year or two ago.

Yes, he was the one included in the package, i.e. the resort hired him-- however, we had the dreams of love and swapped the photog for the videographer. I really will send it out if there is some techie on here who can tell me how.

P.S. Sylvia- I looked at your wed-site... so pretty! Since you listed nearby hotel options I thought I'd let you and others know that the Hyatt Regency is RIGHT next door to Dreams Cancun. It is a stunning hotel and had great rates (at the time we were there it was $85/night per room). Just an FYI because that is a question I had before the wedding.

Samantha, you can open an account and upload your video to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket. After the file is done, they will give you links which you can send to people to share.

If you have a google account, picasa has similar function that you can set your file private, and people can't access to your file unless you give them the link.

Thanks for the tips! Well, I have a photobucket account but the instructions say it can only upload 5 or 10 minute videos and I think mine is about 30 minutes or so. Looking in to the Picasa one. I can probably pay to have it done at my work and its not that much-- I'll look in to it-- its worth it. :-)

I lied! The Guayberra shirts are still there for $12.99. If this link doesn't work, just do a search for Guayberra on the haband website. They are pretty much the deal of the century for Groomsmen attire.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
