Hey Ladies

 

Wow so much going on! Tenny, Brandy, Teira and everyone else that is leaving soon. All the best and i wish you ladies nothing but the best on your special day! Have fun and enjoy it, don't sweat the small stuff!

 

So sorry to hear about the sister dramas because I can SO relate. Don't let anyone ruin your day ladies. It is ALL about you even if they don't think so!

 

Ok so I have a prototype of my ceremony program fan but I am changing the sticks that you can see through the cardstock to double sided tape and it works and looks MUCH better. I am so not a creative person so honest opinions please! Also I added a few flowers to a basket for the flower girl and finished my hair flower. Thanks lua cause I couldn't find the starfish I wanted in my price range I got the same center part as you cause yours looked so nice.

Sherri thanks so much for all your help with the caramilk bar template. Here is the final result.

Lisa, your programs turned out great. I have only gotten around to printing some of mine, no assembly yet. I think they will look great with the tape instead. How did you manage to get the eyelet through all the pages? It's a great idea with the ribbon at the top too. The caramilk wrapper turned out really well too. So I know the center of your flower is from Michaels, but where in the store?

Char I would bring both shoes, they are both beautiful and can be used throughout the week. If you are going for the wow factor go with the purple for pictures!

 

Meggers-I couldn't stop laughing at the pic of your sisters tattoo. Too freaking funny!

 

Victoria I am so sorry to hear about your flower girl and the cancellations. Keep your head up! Your day will be wonderful even with a few missing!

 

Hearing about all these bachelorettes, showers and suprises is making me so happy for you guys but sad for myself. I don't think anyone is planning anything for me which on the shower side I am ok with but would really love to do a girls night out. Most of my friends are already married with kids and my longterm friends live far away and well we all know my sisters have been less than interested in anything to do with the wedding so ya no party for me! Booooo Ah well, I have had those party days in the past and probably couldn't drink the way I use to anyway lol

 

Only 18more days of work

25 days till I leave

28 days until I am a Mrs. (can't believe this day has finally come)

YAY! I can't wait till this is all over and I can go back to my normal life. Sorry that sounds a bit negative but I am EXHAUSTED lol ok nite nite ladies

I found it in the swarovski crystal accent kiosk in the middle of one of the main aisles. It was out in the open hanging in a black box with a clear circle window. Not in a specific aisle but out in the open displays. They have tons of them and with coupons I ended up spending $5bucks on it.

oh and I used one of those protractor things to poke the holes because using the hole punch was too big and the brad didn't sit right.

    • How many people in your group?  
    • We chose to have our wedding at Fiesta so our review is broken down into categories. We have visited multiple Mexican vacation spots to include playa del carmen, cabo san lucas, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta. We traveled with a group of 35, mostly adults. We had such a great experience and we will definitely go back to Fiesta American Condesa Cancun!!!!    Resort- this was a good size resort, I liked that It was not too big. We didn’t see any of the shows they offer but we did enjoy the pool every day. It was awesome that they had a live dj playing music and fun games to keep us entertained. The bars were all in good locations, we spent a lot of time at the main lobby bar because it stayed open late. They had bands, silent disco, game competitions, etc. every night all very fun and lively!   Room- We stayed in a junior sweet which had ocean view and was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious bathroom, we had a second bathroom in the living room in addition to a breakfast area.    Food- the buffet had a smaller selection of food than we usually see at all-inclusive resorts however the quality of the food was much better!! The ceviche bar outside had amazing fish or shrimp tacos and provides a nice view of the ocean.    Staff- The cleaning staff was great, our room was tidy and organized every day. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. Yes, we did tip and did so often to ensure they kept coming around. After our wedding, it seemed all staff members knew us by name everywhere we went. We were treated so kindly everywhere!  There were two staff members who played a special role in our vacation, Blanca and Magda. They both were delightful and treated us just like family. Yes, they were awesome to my ENTIRE group.    Venue- We chose to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower pool garden followed by reception on the lower pool deck. Beautiful views for both areas!!! Unfortunately, it rained so we ended up in the ballroom.    Wedding package- We chose the Corazon package and I love what the hotel had to offer. For my personal choice, it was between this package and one at dreams resort but I ultimately decided on this one after reviews from other brides and pictures I looked at. If you are on the fence about a destination wedding I say DO IT!! You can’t beat all inclusive, it really eliminates half the stress of planning a wedding. We had cocktail hour with margaritas, a 3 course dinner, a beautiful cake, and of course open bar. We did not opt for any of the add ons. I did bring my own décor such as table runners, Chinese lanterns, center pieces, bubbles, fans, etc.  The floral arrangements and my boquet were beautiful!!! Exactly as I imagined. My cake was also very pretty and looked just like the one I sent to my coordinator from pinterest.    Wedding coordinator- My wedding coordinator, Violeta Cambranes, was truly amazing!! We communicated mostly through email and a few calls right before wedding time. She was very timely and thorough with our plans. We met with her the day before the wedding. She showed us around and we did our food tasting as well as my trial for hair/make up. She is so personable and really felt like one of my friends throughout this process which is nice to have when you’re leaving such an important day in someone’s hands. I sent her pictures of what I envisioned (wedding colors, floral arrangements, table décor, etc.) and she made it all come to life. Because we ended up having to hold our wedding instead, Violeta was able to make accommodations for us which we are truly grateful for!! She was attentive the entire week we were there and we had no bumps in the road!    Rehearsal Dinner- we had dinner for about 15 people in the Mexican restaurant. The food was great and of course the staff was attentive. I do wish we had the opportunity to choose our own meal but still enjoyed it none the less.    Spa- we received a couples massage and it was perfect. Steam room, sauna, hot tub, and massage. So relaxing!! We also received a second massage on our shoulders one of the days we were there. A spa therapist came to our cabana while we relaxed and drank mimosas.    Date- we got married first week of October. I knew it was one of the rainiest months of the year but I was willing to take the change because it was offseason. I’m so glad that I did!! The rooms and the flights were extremely inexpensive. Also, the resort was not packed at all! There was a comfortable amount of people compared to when we usually travel in the summer. The weather was not too hot but it did rain 3/7 days we were there. Mosquitos were also still in full force so would recommend bug spray.   Photographer- my photographer, Mike Cantarall,  overall was great! He captured all the great moments of the wedding. The highlight video was truly perfect!! I will say it did take extremely long to obtain my pictures (7 weeks when expected turn-around time was supposed to be 7 days). I wish we could have had a discussion prior to wedding day. I don’t love a lot of the poses and he did ask me if there was anything specific I wanted  (while on the beach taking pictures) but in the moment I couldn’t think of exactly what I wanted. In hind sight, I would have asked for more close up, more poses as bride and groom, and for my dress to not be scrunched up. With that being said, I was still pleased with the turn-out of my photos.    DJ- our DJ was AudioCancun. Very pricey!!! But we did not have an option for vendor. He did a great job! He truly recognized the vibe of the group and played the best music to keep the party going! We did give him some specific songs which he played them all.    Make-up- My make up and hair was done by Anastacio Brides. I loved my look!! I showed them pictures from pinterest and it came out exactly how I wanted. After different areas of my face were done, my make-up artist would show me in the mirror to see if it was on track with what I wanted. They were so nice and I enjoyed their company while getting ready for my big day.   Travel- to and from hotel we used Happy Shuttle. They have great rates and I trusted them based on the reviews I read. I bought a garment back and carried my dress in my hands the entire way there and back! (yes even through all the flights). We ended up taking 4 suitscases between the two of us and also had some of our family members pack things for us.    Boat- Our group took a triple decker boat, Dancer Cruise, to Isla Mujeres. It was a full day of fun, accommodating both kids and adults. We snorkeled, we ate lunch, and we danced! The slide and diving board were pretty fun! The staff was lively and the boat was not very packed so that was nice. They did give us a group rate when I emailed them directly.
