Hi ladies...I have a quick question.

I want to have a cocktail hour (Gold menu) and I was wondering if an open bar will be provided? I think I saw it in pics....is the bar free of charge?

 

Thanks so much

 

xoxo

Hi ladies,

I'm back. The wedding was a dream! Although our travel agents screwed up our group itinerary and it rained until 2 hours before my wedding, all that was forgotten once I put on my dress. Photos and review to come!

I don't know if the photos will show up, but there's a link to our Flickr page so you'll be able to see the photos there. These are some of the 600 photos Arnaud sent us! Amazing!
OMG, OMG.... I'm so excited I can barely type!!! Welcome back and congratulations :) I'm so happy that your day was awesome and that the rain clouds parted for your special moment in time! I'm squinting at your new avatar pic and I LOVE what I see (HDC scores again!!). Okay, I can't wait another minute, I've got to go read your review!! lol

SunandSand...posted a reply on your review thread, but wanted to congratulate you on this forum as well. Your photos are amazing!

 

I've been away for a while and have been getting caught up...congrats to all the new brides and to all the new brids to be!

 

Gem...welcome back from your honeymoon! Glad to hear that it went well. Congratulations to you and your new husband. Looking forward to reading your review.

 

dolfinluck...Love the new wedding photo of you and your husband; beautiful! Hope the two of you are enjoying your official honeymoon!!!

 

Pink_Petals...congrats on the civil wedding! Can you believe it's only a little over a month awayhuh.gif WOW! Saw the photo of you in your gown...you look gorgeous; I'm sure you cannot wait to wear it in the DR. As for the open bar, I haven't the slightest idea about that. We're still trying to get a straight answer about the SSG for our dinner/reception. We've been given so many different answers from Tiara and Yanna and haven't received any replies within the last couple of months. I understand that they are extremely busy, so will just have to trust that it will all be worked out before November! :)

 

Can't remember who was asking about which type of heel to get for their wedding, but after reading this forum, I decided to go with a wedge heel at the suggestion of other DLR brides. The aisle leading up to the gazebo would make it a bit difficult, in my opinion, to walk with stilettos (although I LOVE them!)...probably a safer bet with a wedge.

 

telly032...I've also got an ivory dress and purchased some tulle for the gazebo a while back, but have since decided to go with paper lanterns, again, after seeing other brides on this forum use them and seeing how beautiful they looked. From what I know, the staff at DLR will put up your decorations for you...don't believe they charge for this service, do theyhuh.gif Good luck to you...

 

Sorry for being so long winded...it's been a while!

Nancy

Congrats! SunandSand. Thank you so much for the review and pictures. I got butterfly's looking at them. I am so excited that we selected this resort. Everyone's weddings have looked so beautiful. Another thing I've noticed is that every wedding looks unique to the couple. It seems like this resort offers many personailzed options.

Congrats!!! Everything looked lovely and wonderful. i'm so happy for you, and your right the cake turned out great with the sugar flowers... the pics you emailed me were awful (from before you left) Quick question though, at the SSG, did they put linens on the table? I just rented it out but am going with their menu and the 'free" wedding.

Hope your still on a high, and congrats on becoming a MRS :)

Hello everybody! I am a newbie, sortof...It has taken me several weeks to catch up with all the great info on this forum so I have been reading all 118 pages!! I don't know how to thank all of you for sharing your stories and guidance. Sorry I haven't been posting anything I just didn't want to duplicate any questions that had already been covered.

I've been engaged for over a year now and really trying to nail down a date w/in the next couple weeks. Wish me luck :)

Hi Katie:

 

Welcome aboard and congratulations! This forum and thread are amazing and you'll get tonnes of help and support with everything you need! Good luck with getting your date (that's always the nail biting part of things!) As for asking repeat questions, I'm sure we all appreciate the effort (although I'm sure it's bound to happen one way or another...and that's okay too :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
