Hey Ladies!!

 

My wedding is 2 and half weeks away and im kinda freaking out beacuse i've read some reviews about the wedding coordinator not being so nice and tacking on fees.  Can anyone tell me how their experience was??  Also, im really debating weither i want to have the personel at the spa do my hair.  I'm very picky with my hair and i know exactly what i want but, dont really know how good these girls are!!  Feedback please!! thanks soooooo much!

Hey SM8022!

 

My wedding is exactly 3 weeks from tomorrow! When is yours?

 

My onsite wedding coordinater is Elizabeth....She seems very nice so far....I have set up my meeting with her for 6/18 the day i arrive....

 

As fas as hair and makeup, i am using Fernando Fuentes from the Makeup Pros...He and his team are amazing! 

 

I will be using my spa hair and makeup that is included in my package on another day....

 

Which coordinator did you read bad reviews on? who is your WC?

 

Good luck with everything! Maybe i'll see you there!

Hello fellow Royal brides:)

 

Most of your weddings are coming up so soon!! We have a while to go.. Less than 11 months to go.. I heard many brides have brought in an outside photographer and avoided the vendor fee.. I would love if someone can offer some suggestions on how this was done!?

 

Also, how did you brides handle travel accommodations for guests? We are not sure if we should get a travel agent, book through the hotel and take advantage of the discount wedding rate for the rooms,  or use EXPEDIA (or other travel site).. What did you do?!

We're getting married at The Royal Cancun May 21, 2012. We have stayed at The Royal before so I can vouch for the fact that everything there is amazing! We chose the Classic wedding package and the beach for the ceremony. We are having an early afternoon ceremony at 2:00 pm and I have Pelicanos tentatively booked for a semi-private reception "dinner" at 3:30. Does anyone have any comments or recommendations as far as which restaurant would be best? We have a small party (only 20). I haven't booked a reception venue and not sure if I will... I was thinking we could just go over to one of the bars or the Gran Caribe or even into town if we want to go dancing later. I haven't booked a photographer yet and wasn't impressed with what I saw from the resort photgrapher...

 

Anyhow, I will keep checking this forum and I would love to hear about all your experiences and any suggestions or feedback!

We did our semi-private reception at Maria Marie and it was really nice. There's a small area to the right when you walk in that's partly walled off from the rest of the diners and they put us there and it felt very private. I have better pictures somewhere but you can kind of see the set-up here http://www.flickr.com/photos/callamonster/5215351323/in/set-72157625487859186/

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
