Jeanette,

So amazing. Can I ask you something? At what time is the sunset ?, at what time was your ceremony? where did you get those wonderful starfish, etc?. My weeding is end of May and we are trying to figure out the late sunset at this time of the year.

You look absolutly amazing!!!!

Congratulations!

 Sunset was approximately 7 pm, our ceremony was scheduled for 5 pm, but by the time I got there it was probably closer to 5:30.  The starfish came from Winners, clam shells from ebay as well as the chair sashes, fans from Oriental Trading and I made the pew markers with ribbon, raffia and the starfish.  I'm just waiting to get some more pictures and I'll show you the palapa set up, which was beyond my expectations!  The ladies at the spa did an amazing job, I didn't even know I could clean up that nice.

Yes, people kind of looked at me crazy when a year before the wedding I was saying things like..."well, sunset that night is at 5:26, so..."

 

But it sure helped with our planning!  You guys will have almost two more hours of sun than we did when we got married from the looks of things!!!

Hey Janette Did you use the hotel florist for center pieces ?.we are really trying to save money,and I'm thinking in putting candles or something very simple. Also in the beginning they told me that they didn't charge extra for decorating the palapa with my stuff and now they say they do...... Anyway the problem is not if they do or not. It's disappointing that they say one thing and then another one.

 I brought my own centerpieces, basically just vases from the dollar store that I wrapped velum around to make luminaries and had some shells on the table.  If you are going to go with candles and you're going to be in the palapa I would suggest flameless as it was extremely windy the night of my wedding.  There was a small joke made to my husband that it was Hurrican Janette and that is what he has to look forward too!  They did charge me for putting up the lanterns, I had taken 60 with me but they only charged me for 30 but they put up some of their own which looked great!  I don't have my pro pictures yet but here is some my cousin took showing the lanterns and some of our meal.  I think they charged me $5 per lantern for set up.

And this shows how windy it was, we are holding onto our glasses so they didn't blow over!

We're looking at Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach/Riviera Maya for Jan 2013. What is the difference between the two halves? What wedding packages have you ladies chosen? I'm reading reviews about the beach being rocky -- it's still pleasant to swim there and walk along?

We're not able to do a site visit so I have to rely on others' experiences!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
