    Hi Asha, 

     

    Our ceremony started at 4:30...even later than that cause we were late ;)

     

    Dance started around 8:30.  So you will have more than enough time

      @jennac2. I haven't sent Mayte any ideas as of yet... We are still finalizing some ideas. I have a ton of pictures saved to send her with diagrams and all! She does beautiful work.. It's amazing how calm I feel about everything. I feel like we are all in great hands! Where are you ladies staying? We are booked at the Now Larimar.

        I have sent her ideas a long time ago. This past November my fiance and I visited Jellyfish and met with Mayte and did a food tasting. She sat down with us for about 2 hours and went over the menu and logistics. It was amazing! Plus, she took out a folder with all my emails and print outs of the ideas that I have sent her. So she is definitely organized and keeps track even if she doesn't respond right away. I would suggest you get a bunch of ideas together and then email them to her all at once so to not overwhelm her inbox (I hear she gets close to 100 emails a day!).

        We are planning on getting to DR on November 20th and will probably meet with Mayte on the 21st or 22nd. We may see you there!!! :) Did you decide where you will be staying?

          We are staying at Grand Bahia Principe. Now Larimar is nice but it was out of our price range.

            Hi ladies!

             

            I just returned from vacationing in the beautiful DR! I stayed at the Now Larimar, which was a beautiful 20 ish minute beach walk down to the Jellyfish! I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to meet with Mayte while there to discuss my Feb 18th, 2014 wedding!!!

             

            It was sooo great to see the Jellyfish in person! It is such a cool place, and looks just as awesome in person as it does online!!!! It is a very intimate space! Stunning!

             

            Before my trip I was feeling a bit worried about how everything was going to come together, and I was so anxious to get going on the planning, but with the response times being so slow betwee Mayte and I it was becoming a bit stressful!!! Even despite each returning bride saying how perfect, and wonderful their weddings were I needed to know it for myself! So let me also say, Mayte is absolutely AMAZING! She is incredible, so sweet and kind. She will absolutely do everything to make your special day nothing but perfect. After only 5 minutes together Mayte had a strong sense of who I am, my style and what vibe I wanted for my wedding day. She was instantly able to come up with amazing decor ideas, better then anything I had come up with! I left there feeling VERY excited!!!

             

            Mayte invited us to come for drinks a few days later to see her setting up for a wedding. We took her up on this, and despite being so incrediblly overworked and stressed, you would never know it! The wedding we saw her setting up for was beautiful! Everything was done with such care! Mayte was sooo composed and even took a few minutes out of her day to come and talk with us again :) She really is an amazing lady.

             

            Mayte did express to us how busy she is. She has a wedding everyday from the time we were there until the end of May. NO break. And she has a beautiful 2 year old daughter to squeeze in there too! She said she decides at  least 18 hours to each wedding!!!!! So with all of that being said, please be patient with her, she does the best she can to respond to e-mails, but did explain she tries to, for obvious reasons, respond to those brides with wedding dates coming up vs someone like myself who isn't until February 2014! She is incredibly organized and knows exactly what's going on. She is an amazing one man show!

             

            I took some great photos of the jellyfish, which I can hopefully get uploaded in the next week for you all to see. Also, tried the coco loco drink which was delicious! The Pina Colada was one of the best I have ever had, with pieces of coconut!

             

            Hope this helps ease most of your minds! Your wedding will be PERFECT! Any questions, don't hesistate firing me a message!

             

            Cheers ladies!

              We are hoping to stay at the Now Larima. Just got back from vacationing there and LOVED it. But it will be price dependent...

                We got a hell of a deal for Now Larimar... When I look at prices now for Novemeber it is absolutely ridiculous! We totally lucked out thanks to a promotion from Sunwing. We tried asking our rep to stay an extra 3 nights, 10nt package, and it was two and a half times more per person! It sucks we can't stay an extra couple of days... But what can you do! What colours are you ladies thinking?

                  That's great! Glad you guys got a great deal. We got a very nice deal for Grand Bahia, so that's what we decided to go with.

                   

                  For colors, we are thinking of doing all white with a splash of tiffany blue here and there. What about you?

                    We are thinking our colour scheme is going to be white/cream with the accent colours of burnt orange and magenta pink in the flowers and our menu cards/ribbons.

                      I'm thinking a darker purple and a lighter purple. How did you or how do you plan on expressing your color choices to Mayte?
