April you are in the high season (spring break, etc.)

Tammy, we were looking at a Zoetry resort for December!  Do you know what the prices are?  We want to take a 5-7 day honeymoon.

Also, I've been in contact with Evangelina who has been coordinating things for me.  I asked her about adding on an additional photo package and she asked if I had contacted the photographer directly.  I wasn't aware if we were supposed to do this ourselves and choose an extra package, or if she would contact them.  I hope it's not too late!

 

Any advice would be helpful :)

Ash, not sure about the photos but I heard horror stories with shipping.  I've heard it's very pricy!  I am also a control freak and would only be comfortable having my stuff with me so I am checking it all.

I'M 3 DAYS BEFORE YOU!!! I CANNOT WAIT!

 

I'm not shipping anything. It sounds like I have about the same amount of items as you. I am going to pre-stuff my OOT bags with the small things (sunscreen, guest itineraries, pepto, etc) then lay them flat in a suitcase. I'm hoping that will help save some time and space. :)

 

I was also told to contact the Photographers seperately also. They will be paid for seperate from the Wedding. The email address is: drercphoto@vallarta-adventures.com. You can find the photo packages in the Dreams Wedding Guide (if you don't have it, just google "Dreams Riviera Cancun Wedding Guide-it's a PDF), that's what I did.

I've heard that shipping things down there isn't a good idea. It takes a ton of space in the luggage to carry it down, but it may be the best way to make sure things get down there!

I was wondering the same thing! My flight is a charter and they said they don't have those closets either. I'm hoping there will be someone to help me when I get there so it will be ok. Maybe there's an empty seat or something. Let me know if you come up with something! I leave in 2 weeks!!

When we called AA they said the same thing. I still took the dress and had a folded bag just in case they wonâ€t allow it as carry on. When we got to the airport all the staff was very understandable and they just hung it in the business class section, they did have a closet on that plane. I recommend to take the dress with you and just having a backup plan.

I will post more later, but for now, I have a few items I would sell to any brides coming down this week if they are interested- that way , I don't have to lug them back to Michigan :P I have 3 32" White candelabras with extra acrylic crystals, 3 ten-foot-long/36" wide iridescent beaded curtains (used for the back and sides of the huppah) 2 organza overlays ( for the cake table and guest book table, perfect size for a 36" top table) with iridescent beaded valances attached, white "I do " letters with some crystals, a blue <3 Bride <3 dress hanger, etc. Etc- let me know if anyone is coming this week and wants to buy these- this website has been so helpful in planning and want to have a mutual helping out if anyone wants. Thanks! I am having trouble uploading photos , so until I get them up, you can email me at runningangel@hotmail.com. Good luck planning ladies!

 

I wish I could help you out and take a few things off your hands but unfortunately my wedding won't be until next summer. Just curious where you got the bead curtains for the huppah from? I bet they looked amazing and I would love something like that.

 

Thanks

 

Alicia
