    I was the same with my Dress. You really dont know till you try them on what you will end up with. I originally wanted a plain straight dress and i've ended up with a "big" fussy dress, ha ha.. I love it! Also with my BM's i knew all along it would be pink but didn't plan on the bright fuschia pink. It's funny how when you see something it all comes together....

    We got our resort photographers confirmation today! yippee!!

    Going MOB dress shopping on saturday.. wish me luck... my mum's a nightmare! lol
    My mom just got her dress for next year. We went to Lord and Taylor. They have TON'S of dresses there. My mom tried on about 15 dresses and she ended up purchasing the first one she tried on! They seemed to have dresses for any type of wedding. They were also having a sale so the dress ended up being cheaper!! If you have a Lord and Taylor near you, you should definitely check it out!

        I have been to the Del Mar before. My fiancee and I went 3 years ago with a group of friends and loved it!! Thats why we decided to go back. We are having our ceremony on the beach and our reception in the now Italian restaurant. I am working on booking DJ DOREMIXX for the wedding, just waiting to hear back on the confirmation from him. I'm thinking on looking for an outside photographer but havn't gotten that far yet.

        How about you? What are you doing for your wedding? I walked through the Lindo the last time I was there and it's real pretty.
        Ooh I love that the Italian is open air -- it'll be perfect for your reception!

        We are having a Catholic ceremony (very important to his grandmas LOL) at the chapel in the shopping center.

        And we're not sure about where to have the reception yet. We'll decide at our site visit.

        We want a private reception where we can have dinner & dancing in the same location. Sadly, I dont think the Lindo has any open air restaurants like the Italian at Del Mar.

        I hear you can have an outdoor reception in the little piazza outside the shopping center (by the gazebo) Have you heard this?

        We're booking DOREMIXX too! He's been very responsive & thorough in his emails. Just havent paid the deposit yet.

            I have not heard that you can have a reception in the Piazza! I wonder what that looks like?! I am very interested to know! When do you go for your site visit?

            I am really excited about DOREMIXX! The only thing is he isn't that prompt with returning my emails I emailed him first last Tuesday and didn't hear from him until Thursday and then again Friday night. I then responded to that email and havn't heard from him since. I feel like I'm the only one on here that isn't having any luck with the emails from him. Not sure, maybe he is just busy.....

                  My mom and I (that's right bringing my mom instead of the FI haha) leave July 26th! We will meet with Mayra, the WC at Lindo to plan the reception venue, dinner menu, ceremony music, etc. etc. We will also hopefully meet with the resort's florist to pick out all our bouquets & centerpieces. There is one florist for all 5 IB properties and I was told he's very busy and that Mayra will "try" to get him to meet with us. Really?!

                  I am also getting my hair/makeup trial at Waves Salon in PDC and meeting with Ivan Luckie (photographer), so it'll be a packed 4 days for sure. I really want to get as much planned as possible so it'll be smooth sailing in January!

                  As for the piazza (that's just my word, I dunno what they call it) here is the email from Mayra:

                  Can you please tell me ALL options for our private reception, including those on the other Iberostar properties? Also, if you have pictures of these spaces, that would be very helpful.

                  I would like to mention that we do have the Convencion Center, Shopping Center Garden, Vitrales Room, By the Beach and the Cajun Restaurant


                  Attached to the email were photos and I can only assume by process of elimination that "shopping center garden" is this photo:
                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  I'm assuming she's referring to the area surrounding the gazebo? I will clarify and take pics while we're there. This should be available to you at the Del Mar as well since all the properties share the shopping center area.

                    Oh, and I wouldn't worry about DOREMIXX not getting back to you . . . Maybe it's because it was a friday and they had numerous events over the weekend? I've only exchanged one email with him and he responded in I think 2 days, which I thought was good, comparably speaking.

                    How are the WC's at Del Mar at getting back to you? At the Lindo, they're inconsistent, one time it'll be a few hours later, the next time, a week!

                      Thanks everyone for the kind words about my dress! I keep going back online and looking at it :)

                      Pitt - WELCOME :) I'm also getting married at the Iberostar Del Mar on June 25, 2011. As Lindobride said, the 2010 Iberostar thread is awesome - it was actually what helped me make up my mind about what resort. We're also going to do the Italian restaurant for the reception - I know that it's an extra cost, but I just love the idea of having it private. I figure that I'll just cut back on something else that isn't as important to us :)

                      I also have been trying to get in touch with DJ Doremixx, so hopefully I can get everything squared away with him soon.

                      Lindobride - your new picture is cute! You two make a great couple :)
