So my coordinator is going on vacation for the next week. I have a lot of questions left. I've asked to see my current invoice a couple of times and it seems to be falling on deaf ears. I'm not worried, I'm just frustrated. I want to work out my details. That's fine, next week will be extremely busy for me at work. Time will fly!

Hi JoannaBanana - ah yes....one of the joys of doing business in Mexico ~ when your world collides with "manana time" :)

 

You may have noticed other brides on the boards with similar complaints......it's not unusual. However "at the end of the day" it usually all works out to be the Truly AMAzingly Wonderful Wedding Celebration you've dreamed of - so take heart - it will all work out :)

 

That being said, it's also wonderful to be flexible about little stuff, and keep your eyes on the Big priorities. It's YOUR BIG DAY!!! You're going to marry the man you LOVE and officially start sharing the rest of your life journey together - YEH!!!!

 

We've seen so many beautiful wedding celebrations at the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya - and yours will be awesome too!!! after all, your photo backdrops will look like this (taken from our Grand Sirenis Wedding Story Album):

It's going to be Gorgeous!!! Enjoy - team MTM :)

Quick question, I know most of you have gone with the palapa for your reception but has anyone chosen the a la carte? We had our hearts set on the steakhouse but we were just informed that they reserve that for bigger groups. Our back up choice is the Italian but we really don't want any other restaurant (a little bit of a fussy fiancé lol). Has anybody had trouble booking a restaurant for their reception and when do you get confirmation which restaurant you are actually getting?

I chose the a la carte because we are getting married on a Wednesday and the Palapa wasn't able to be booked on a Wednesday. I also didn't want to pay a crazy amount extra for a beach dinner, and we really aren't too picky as to where the reception is. I had a Skype call with our wedding coordinator yesterday, and she said we are 99% booked for the Italian restaurant. Aranza did say she wouldnt be able to 100% confirm the restaurant until 2 weeks before though. Hope this helps! @@WPGBride17

How much did you guys tip the staff for the wedding? DJ, Coordinator, Photographer etc.

We brought our own photographer (didn't tip her) so only tipped Aranza, the DJ, the MC and the wait staff. I'm trying to remember, but I think we gave Aranza about $150 US to split amongst the staff that worked that night. In hindsight I wish we had tipped more - they were all honestly amazing and made the wedding 1000% perfect. Our guests were tipping the bartenders too, so that made me feel a bit better, lol.

We tipped Aranza $75, the photographer $50 and about $180 for her to split amongst the waitstaff etc. so DJ and more. Hindsite, like Krystal, it wasn't enough for the service they provided. Go high on this one. I saw the main guy the next day and tipped him double for dinner as I felt bad! Lol. I have no idea if anyone at our wedding tipped.

You ladies mentioned the MC. Does the resort provide an MC for the wedding? If so, were you happy with the way it turned out and how much did it cost you?

 

I was thinking of having the best man as the MC - he's got a great sense of humor and he loves coordinating and being in the center of attention :P

 

Wondering what your thoughts are.

Just a quick post I will do a full review as soon as I can but just wanted to let you know you are in incredibly good hands. Our wedding day was 1000 times better then I could have ever dreamed. It was perfect and there isn't anything I would've changed. Everyone at the resort knows what they are doing and are so so skilled. You made the right choice with the resort!

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
