SO true! Just keep reading this forum (daily if you can because otherwise you get WAY behind). I have had SO many questions answered on here. It has been a savior to have this. I have been planning for a few months so if you have any specific questions, I might be able to help.
Good luck with all the planning!

So I didn't even see her until I walked down the aisle. It was ok, but I would have liked to have met her first. I put together our script but she also had a script that we could have used if I prefered. Do you know who your officiant is? If it is Rosa, I have her script and can probably share it with you.
Can you please send me the script... jdhallwedding@hotmail.com

Are all of the officiants women?
I too, put together our own script and I'd like to get it to the officiant a week before we get down there.
When did you know who your officiant would be?
Did you have some type of rehearsal with Ana since you didn't see the officiant until THE moment?

HAHA that is too funny! i didn't even realize it.....Nah not having anything back here, we have about 100 people going, 75 already booked. so that is enough for us! Are you having something back here?? I know a lot of people who that, so it it is very common.

I didn't think the $393 was that bad for 3 nights considering it includes your food and drinks......just because we have a very big drinking crowd so they will drink about $300 dollars worth a day.....so this is a major deal for them!!! A lot of them are bartenders.....so this is a treat to them and the staff is going to love this crowd cause they are major tippers

Also, on my group contract, it said private check-in, and "welcome cocktail". How did that work? I tried to set up the cocktail and was told it wasn't an event. Not a huge deal, but I thought it was a group perk.

Also, what did you past brides think of the officiant? I'm worried about a really strong accent. Also, for my faith, I'm more comfortable with a male officiant - just my image of my wedding day, I guess. Anyone know if there is a male officiant available?

Thanks!

We had a guy marry us there. He was great! There was a definite accent though but it just made getting married in Mexico the real thing. We still kid to each other about how he said "love" he kept pronoucing it "Lub". LOL We will never forget this.

Hi!

 

We are planning a wedding date of June 4 2011 at the Dreams Riviera Cancun. I've emailed a request about a week ago to the wedding coordinator for availability but have not yet received a response. I'm curious from other brides (or brides to be) whether their experiences with the WCs were positive and if they were reliable with communication. I know the wedding is a whiles away, but I'd like to get the location confirmed.

 

Thanks!

Jen

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
