Hi Ladies,

 

Can anyone answer my question: Do you know if we can have a outside / make-up artist do our hair and make-up the day of the wedding?

To answer a couple of questions thrown my way recently:

 

I didn't have table overlays so I never investigated the size of the tables.  I think the measurements of tables are somewhere on this thread if I remember correctly.  I was supposed to have between 6 and 8 people at each of my tables (I've heard they hold 10 but with the way I wanted the seating arrangement, I ended up with less people at each table).  Our reception was moved inside so I never even saw the round tables up close.  I probably shouldn't give advice on this subject.

 

I didn't have bridesmaids so I didn't have to think about the order of announcing at the reception.  However, the 9 (count 'em) times I've been a bridesmaid, I was paired up with whomever I walked down the aisle with and we were announced last bridesmaid entering first then on down the line to to the first bridesmaid/MOH and finally bride and groom (if that helps).  I googled a lot of different reception schedules to figure out my order of events.

 

We did not end up ordering the appetizers on the catamaran cruise.  I thought long and hard about picking up our own snacks at the Costco or something in Cancun but we decided it wasn't worth the hassle.  If people are hungry (or sober) while staying at an all-inclusive, it's their own fault! Ha!  We told guests there was only going to be alcohol on the cruise so they should plan their eating schedule accordingly.  No one complained!

 

Kad1010 - I just tried sending you the documents twice and I got a failure to deliver notice.  I copied and pasted the address... is there another address you'd like me to try?

I emailed Ana a few weeks ago regarding bringing Fernando Fuentes in and she told me it wouldn't be a problem but they would charge a $55 fee for him, as well as a $55 fee for any assistant he may bring with him.

Lupita, when is your wedding? I'm sure it's well before mine, I am not until the November 2012...but I am trying to get as many details and prices in writing now. That's awesome that you are going to use him too. I have heard wonderful things about him and he is super nice in his emails!

kad1010, our wedding is on December 10, 2011. Ceremony will be at the gazebo and reception on the pool deck. I can't wait 6 months to go!cheer2.gif

 

 

Sarah-Jane, it took a phone call and several  emails to Ana before she was able to confirm our wedding date....Very frustrating. I put our deposit down in 12/2010 and our wedding date was confirmed in 2/2011. Our Save the date went out end of Feb. for our wedding in December 2011.

 

Hope this helps!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
