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!

    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?  
    • Yeah, Put it all into the cake! Make it tasty   So u will be original 100%))) What are u waiting from those weddings? U think its the best idea?:)  I'm using https://escortinbudapest.info for weddings every day
