My question is did they charge you for the curtains around the room? When I met with the wedding coordinator she told me its $1000 for the curtains but I think they are always up!!! I do not think I should be charged for something that is never taken down...

 

        

 

Hi.  Thanks.  I honestly don't know if any of that is extra.  The reason for my reception happening in the ballroom was due to rain.  They just told me that it would be set up with the things I had chosen like the lights and lanterns.  I was really afraid what that was going to look like but they assured me that it was already decorated.  I think I might have luck out because while my whole entire stay there were conferences there everyday.  Lots of companies, so that might have been why it was curtained off.  Sorry I can't clarify more for you.

Yes, I brought down chair bows, table overlays, fans to be placed at the ceremony site.  And they do not charge to place these things for you.  You just go over with them how you want things and they do it.

Quote:you can bring your own and no they dont charge you can take anything that you want for your wedding, give it to them and they will set it up :) If you are going to send stuff prior you do have to be carefull as there are restrictions on what you can send. Hope this helps :) Petal Keine

How was dinner on the pool deck?  I was curious if it was really windy and or cold for the reception part.  I have done dinner on the beach before and the wind REALLY kicks up.

Thanks

Ok, so I've been back for exactly two weeks and I kept meaning to post some of these.  As I mentioned previously, I really didn't pay for much extra stuff at all.  I paid for 12 lanterns (on two stands) and for 6 bridesmaid bouquets, which cost $80 each and I re-used for the centerpieces and the vases, which cost me $10 each.  That was all I added besides extra meals (I didn't have the cocktail party, I used the credit towards dinners).  I forgot to mention that I just paid for the sound technician and made a kick-a$$ playlist (I just had him play it from start to finish)!  I had one list for dinner music, one list for dancing and a CD for the first dance and father daughter dance.  It worked out amazingly well!  We had my brother in law MC, so the tech didn't have to say a word.

 

I attached pictures to give you an idea of what your set-up might look like without adding too much.  Here's what I brought:  sand dollars as place cards and a wood tray to set them in sand, tealight candle holders in teal and white (I think we had 5 for each table), LED tea lights, teal ribbon to put one strip around each chair, menus that I glued onto teal cardstock and they were tucked into the white napkins, teal sticks from the flower shop to hold the table numbers in the BM bouquets I re-used.  I brought NOTHING for the ceremony, just the flowers for the table which were included (multicoloured).  The bridesmaid dresses were a vibrant teal and that was plenty of colour.  So everything was white except for a few little touches of teal for the reception.

 

She added another 12 lanterns and the white flags for free as a surprise.  I thought it was gorgeous and the whole thing cost us almost nothing over the package price!

 

Here's the link to our slideshow but to be honest... for some reason, he chose some pretty bad shots of us to include in it.  There were so many stunning ones (that we ended up choosing) so why, I'm not sure! haha.  http://030511wolkove.dreamsriveriacancun.adventurephotos.com.mx/

Let me know if you have any questions for me and trust me when I say.. DO NOT STRESS!  It will turn out better than you can imagine, even if you do NOTHING before heading down there.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
