Oh absolutely I would do the same if we weren't having an AHR!

Amy, have you spoke to them about the private reception thing yet? I haven't had a chance to email them but it makes me nervous. I also feel like I keep finding all these extra fees. Has anyone completely planned it and know how much its costing them?

Hi Rose- No I haven't yet. I am not too worried if I do not have a private dinner. I think I'll be in my own little world! However, it would be nice- I have to figure that out. I definitely will not be doing something private like that Los Vitrales room- Theres no way I can afford a fee for a room on top of having the AHR and everything else. For me I don't feel its necessary.

It would be nice to get a section of a restuarant that was at least semi private!

We went to a wedding this summer at the Lindo/Maya and they did NOT have a private reception. However, the wedding coordinator suggested having their dinner at the Gourmet restaurant at the Lindo where there is a back room. Though there was no room to dance or anything, they closed a door to the rest of the restaurant and it was completely private. We all sat at a long table with the bride and groom at the head of the table. You might ask them about this option. And, it didn't cost anything extra. Just a thought!

thats a great idea! I was told by my TA that the Lindo guests can't use the gourmet restaurant, but either she's wrong or maybe it doesn't matter for a wedding? Semi private is fine and so far we're not planning to dance- going to the 'club' at the resort in the convention center is fine by me since we have the AHR. we'll see- i may change my mind!

There is a gourmet restaurant that is only for Maya guests, but there is also a gourmet restaurant for the Lindo. We stayed at the Lindo and were able to eat at a gourmet restaurant. The food was really good too!!

We are staying at the Del Mar...sorry I can't help. But your TA should be able to advise you on that.

If you want to play around with the time frame and cost you can check out applevacations.com and gogotravel.com

Those are two vendors we use.

Hi Ladies!

I need some input :)

One of my bridesmaids is a florist, so she will be making the bouquets for me once we arrive in Mexico and I am trying to determine where the best place will be to purchase the flowers. Are any of you going through an outside florist? And if so, where are they located? I'm hoping to find somewhere right in Playa that we can make a trip to pick out the flowers rather than having to pay to have them delivered to then create the bouquets. Any words of windom would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!!

    • 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?
