    Well, Yamina isn't new...she booked our wedding 6 months ago when we were there for a visit.  I just think the language barrier is troublesome sometimes.  The $599 is for hair and make up.  I wanted my girls to have the works.  I booked it and then the spa emailed me the invoice.  

     

    I am glad you said that about the shipping!!  I am definitely not doing it now.  OMG I am going to have so much to pack.

    I think Yamina must be new her last email to me was a bit confusing- I did read on this forum that someone had their welcome cocktails at the lobby bar and it worked out great that is what I was planning on doing, I believe it is open until 1am. 

     

    I am also working on finishing my invitations and I am so excited they came out incredible. 

    As for shipping I am going to try to avoid, I would be very concern of something not making it especially something really important like your flowers I think it is to risky. I was planning on recruiting close family members in helping check extra luggage.

     

    Do you know anything about day passes for the hotel?

      I'm glad you told me that!!  Yamina didn't advise against it, but I remembered hearing something like that and tried to tell my dad who still thinks we should ship.  I am definitely not now!!

      My travel agent advised against it and at the time, so did Ana.  Things can sit in customs, get kicked around and are easily lost plus it can be extreamly expensive to ship something with the gurantee it'll be there on time.  Ana told me they have no way of securing what is sent and it may very well be used in another brides wedding if its seens as available...whatever that means but I woulndn't risk it!  Just ask everyone to pus something in their carry on and get some hard case suitcases

          LindseyM, I have a cousin who lives in Mexico. I sent all of my invitations at the end of November and she still has not gotten hers. This makes me very hesitant to ship anything there so I will be bringing all our stuff with us on the plane and just keeping my fingers  crossed nothing gets lost!

          I am seriously bummed though because Yamina told me the Barracuda Bar would be perfect for welcome cocktails.  Um no, it closes at 6.  She confirmed today.  What does our invitation say?  7 at the Barracuda Bar.  I am confused as to why she'd suggest it in the first place, but whatever!  We will have to correct it in our welcome letter.  :)

           

          We also ordered a heart shaped sand ceremony vase and cork bowl set from Wedding Star.  It's engraved with our initials and date.  I LOVE IT.  Also got 7 cameras for the reception tables and bridal party tank tops from etsy.  I feel like I get a wedding surprise in the mail every day, I love it!!
           

          Question about shipping - how many of you are shipping things to the resort?  Honestly, I'd like to just pack them so I know they're with me, but I'm nervous about checking all the extra baggage.

           

          I am nervous to ship because if something [like our sand for the ceremony or artificial flowers] gets stuck at customs, we're beat...we wouldn't have it.  Thoughts on this?

                  I've heard from her pretty regularly in the past few weeks. She usually takes about 2 days to respond to my emails. 

                  I've found that if I limit my emails to a few questions and my questions are numbered she responds more thoroughly!! haha

                  Who are you using for the DJ? I am using the guy through the hotel and he responds to emails VERY quick!

                  Will I have to purchase a calling card to call them.  I need a follow up on my dj and cake maker and she isn't replying and its driving me insane!

                   

                  Also, is anyone interested in writing their entire wedding off next year? I am..... lol.  I'm hosting part 2 of my bachelorette party in Cancun using my Pure Romance business and because of such, my tax preparer said I can write the entire thing off so I thought I'd share that tidbit......

                   

                  Or if anyone is interested in items themselves or you're in the DC/VA/MD/NJ area, host a party through me and I'll give you a free shopping spree at your party valued to 20% of the of the proceeds made at your party...I also do internet parties as well...

                    I was just wondering if anyone is using a photographer thats an outside vendor. I have already put a deposit down for Claudia Rodriguez and I have tried to ask Eva if its ok if I use a different photographer than the one our package provides but I'm not getting an answer. I'm starting to worry as I've seen other posts of people saying its a hastle to try and use an outside vendor.

                     

                    Thanks!
