I'm so glad to hear, Rachel, that you've signed the room block! I've been trying to figure out with them if the forms they sent me were for reservations (i.e. you don't show, you pay for the rooms regardless) or for a room block (i.e. put it on hold, don't pay unless reserving). My main contact on the reservations was Josefina and she's not with them anymore, so it's sorta back to square 1 with explaining everything sad.gif

 

Depending on my final guest list, I may have a reception dinner outside of the hotel (like at Sunset Grill or at a cute restaurant called Miramar, it's near the ferry) just for some variety. If I get around 50 people I'll probably get a sunset cruise and just have appetizers and drinks.

 

Sheena: what pirate cruise are you thinking of? That sounds kinda fun. I've been speaking with a charter company (name escapes me but I can post it later) who charges about $500/hour for a private boat that can fit 55-60, and the pictures look really nice. We can also have them serve us food & drinks or we can bring our own.

Forgot to talk about the reception dinner. It seems like the choices are the Sabor restaurant or palapas outside of the Cafe Del Mar. On my trip there next month I'll make the location decision, and I'll definitely take some pictures and post them! I think I do want dancing at the reception and Elba mentioned that the dj booth is near the palapas, so that may be what we'll go with

i'm going w/ Sabor for the reception because it matches my colors - black, white and fuschia. Elba mentioned that she could set up the table in a u-shape and have the dance floor in the middle. You can have the reception at Sabor until 10:30. I'm going with the buffet option.

 

Fyi.. the cocktail hour is $5 for the all incl. plan and $15 for non-all incl.

 

I was referring to Capitan Hook for the cruise - its a bit pricey though $80 per person. The charter seems to be a better deal.

 

I'm confused about the whole room block thing - can our guests book individually through our room block or do we need to make all the reservations? Edgar is taking quite some time to get back to me.

Hey Sheena, I'm having the exact same question for Edgar! I've actually talked to him on the phone (there's an 866 # on the website) and He said that they would set aside some room blocks without reservations BUT I got the sense he may have been just saying "yes" to make me happy because he's busy (trying to get things together after Josefina left and they have a wedding party this weekend). So I put it down in writing and am waiting for his approval of the contract. Very nerve wracking, I've been waiting for confirmation this past week sad.gif

 

Here's where I found a boat charter: Yacht charter for weddings anniversary birthday boat Cancun, private group party boat leasing rental yacht

 

but it won't be as comfortable if there are more than ~50-55 people

I just got off the phone w/ Edgar and he said that you can block rooms with a credit card, but you will not be charged. They will then generate a code that all your guests can use to block their rooms. You will need to remove the room block for unused rooms 2 weeks before arrival to not be charged.

 

The yacht looks fun for a snorkeling trip might be a bit small for a rehearsal dinner.

Wow, good deal on the Cruise! I think i'll definitely do it then.

 

Gosh i'm still waiting on Edgar - he takes forever! I'm waiting on the contract - since they are starting over again maybe he'll give me an even better deal!

 

Working on the site was fun!! Can't wait till i can start adding activities!

Hi Sheena, I'm actually waiting for confirmation that the boat can leave from Isla Mujeres as well since the websites state Cancun departure. And Edgar takes forever in responding! If you want I can send you a copy of the reservation form that I got from them so you can start reviewing it

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
