    Since I used the free package I didn't have to put down a deposit.  Another bride that I met went with an upgraded package and said she did have to put down the deposit.  So I think it really depends on the package you select.  If you picked something other than the free package then I'd just send Chandlyn an email to see when the deposit is due.

    I was looking at the wedding packages today and I noticed at the bottom it says that a 25% deposit is required to confirm wedding.

    We haven't been asked to provide any type of credit card in order to place a deposit.

    Has anyone else put down a deposit? Recently married brides were you asked to provide a deposit before you left?????

     

    Thanks!!!!

      I've been trying to come up with ideas for OOT bags/favours for our guests and I've gotten a lot of great ideas from this thread as well as others on this site which is great, but I had a thought and wondered what others have done or a planning.  If you gave or are giving OOT bags to your guests when they arrive, did/are you give a favour at the reception as well?  Really trying to stay in (or under budget), so I hope to have a plan of what we want to give before I make any purchases.

        Thanks Ashely.

        I may have to follow up with her. We are going with the Blissful Love Package, and at the end of the email in which I confirm the package, Chandlyn just said "Everything is ok. See you soon.!!"

        I have emailed our travel agent to see if any of her other brides that have gotten married at this resort have put down a deposit!

         

        45 days to go!

          Brides,

           

          I just wanted to share a website that we just recently placed an order on. It is a huge wedding magazine you can get in Shoppers for $10, but if you go to www.weddingstar.com it has absolutely everything from cake toppers to paper place card cut outs.

           

          It was amazing to order from. We placed an order last Tuesday and got the shipment on Thursday after lunch. Speedy, carefully packed, we were highly impressed. Really decent prices too.

           

          Just thought I would share!!

            I have also used Wedding Star to buy multiple things and they have been amazing! 

             

            I highly recommend you check them out! They also have a facebook page with idea and color inspirations.

            We gave OOT bags to our guests.  We gave one per couple, or one per single.  We didn't give them a favor at the reception, just the bags the day after we arrived at the resort.  Our bags included:


            Survival Kit- first aid kit, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, nail file, kleenex package, medication packages, lip balm, gum

            Key Card Holders

            Puzzle Books - 2 per bag

            Glow Sticks

            Starfish Bottle Opener

            Deck of Cards

            Notepads

            Pens

            Welcome Letter

             

            Out of everything we included people used the first aid kit and key card holders the most.  We used the glow sticks on the night of our wedding.  People also liked the bottle opener and the cards were used a few times.  We had wanted to included mugs and towels, I'm glad we didn't include towels as you can get clean pool/beach towels once a day and if we would have brough out own it would have taken up alot of luggage space.  We didn't include mugs because of our budget, however, its something that I think most people would have used if we would have included them.  Most people did bring their own though.  Hope that helps!

              As I mentioned above I got a picture of the Palmyra and it looks very nice!!! We will have 32 for dinner. We leave in 27 days and I will make sure to post a review when I get back!!! I love reading the reviews.

              We have requested the Dolce, I am nervous Chandlyn is going to switch ours as well.

              How many people do you have for your reception dinner?

              I am sure any of the restaurants will be wonderful, but it is hard when you have your heart set on something.

              Can't wait to hear about your wedding!

                Good Morning,

                 

                I am wondering if the "shopping mall" at the resort sells alcohol?

                We were looking to get some bottles of wine for our wedding party. I am wondering if that is even possible or if I should perhaps talk to Chandlyn to see if we can get some? Or we may have to go into Ochio Rios?

                 

                Thanks!
