Think we are going for the Immaculate conception ( H2B is catholic) but no ideas evening events as yet. Thanks for your help
So you didn't book the wedding through Virgin? Do you mind me asking what you paid for your wedding package?

We are getting married in the Nizuc gazebo, H2B is reliogious but understands how I feel so we are going down the civil ceremony route :)

My FI likes the amber but I think that I am going to pull a bridezilla and overrule him b/c my bridesmaid dresses are going to be a similar shade of blue. The amber is nice but the shells are making me lean towards the sapphire. I have attached the file with the pictures of each collection, compliments of Rachel :-) does anyone have pictures of the bouquets for each collection?

They just remind me of Shell World in Kissimmee. I remember going in there once and seeing everything made out of shells. Put me off shells for life, it was awful!

We booked through an independent but with Virgin holidays. We figured that if we just went to a first choice/ thompson we would ony get their deals but the indepedent stocks all hols and has no loyality to a particular company (plus we wanted to help a small business - they have given us great deals in the past). In the end we had to go with virgin as we wanted to fly onto Orlando for our honeymoon and 99% of the other companies didnt offer twin centres. The lady phoned up the virgin holiday line and booked us that way. I didnt pay anything as we ok-ed the free package to start with ( i know virgin offer their own upgrade but didnt want to take it straight away as i wanted to check what the hotel offered before we signed up to anything - might get a better deal booking direct with the hotel) I just realised that if we are having the catholic chapel I prob wont be able to have the decorations from the sapphire/diamond collection!!!! bummer!

Oh I see. So why won't you be able to have the decor you want if you get married in the catholic chapel?

Looking at the pictures the settings are all based in the gazebos with the white chairs, the chapel set up just has funny white things attached to the end of the wooden pew rows... will it be wide enough to have the decorations also? I hope so. I have emailed Virgin but they have send a standard reply asking me to call. God knows how that will go as I have not been given any reference codes etc... will call in my lunch break me thinks. Anyone have any ideas on evening receptions? I have heard you can book a a'la carte or on the terrace for an extra fee. I am leaning towards having the steak grill. x

Hmmm I'm not really sure tbh. Virgin will get back to you, it will take them a couple of days though.

I don't know what we are doing for our reception yet. The ceremony is at 1pm, that should only take 20 minutes. Then it's photo time. And then I would think at 2.30pm we will go for our meal at one of the restaurants. After that I have no idea what we are going to do so if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. We are not going to have any kind of function outside as it will be far too hot and I know others have struggled with this, so it's air con all the way for us! :)

Just had an email back from Virgin seems they sent all the information to our travel agents on 24th July censored.gifbut they have not forwarded on... grr!! Luckly they were able to attach a copy of the letter with forms to fill in etc.

I have seen on the 2008/2009 page some people had little appetizers etc between ceremony / photos and the meal with a mexican band playing in the background, not sure if there is a area in the lobby bar where they can provide this?? section it off for you? From the website the lobby looks very posh and I'm pretty sure it has air con? Maybe someone else on here can confirm?

If we can get air con that would be good but i'm not super fussed as most of my family are coldies (live in jumpers and have the central heating on all year round making their houses feel tropical!) Hopefully there will be a bit of a breeze to keep us cooler plus we are having ours later wont be as hot i hope :)

Hi Everyone-

I am getting Married on Feb 27, 2010 at the moon and I am doing the beach wedding not the gazebo. I have attended another wedding there before and I can give some input into what to expect.

 

**Our wedding drama so far**

1) One of my bridesmaids is due to give birth the week of my wedding (She's out) on of the groomsmen's wife is also due the same week...hes now out.

 

2) 20 of my fiance's family members booked off resort and are mad that they won't be able to come to the wedding due to the 20% rule.

 

3) We booked our travel arrangements through my mom's RCI and they threatened not to give us the complimentary ceremony and refuse to honor the cocktail hour or reception (its fine cause its all inclusive anyways we want to bar hop around the resort)

 

4) Claudia is terrible to get back to me so I had to get a travel agent just to get some answers (I highly recommend getting a travel agent who can help your family and friends book their flights and fight your battles for you!!)

 

I hope your planning is going smoother than mine is!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
