Thank you!!! I JUST booked my Wed for THIS Nov16/17 (2013!!!!) and will be assigned my offsite coordinator tomorrow. I will ask for Renee. Thank you! Any other tips/advice are welcome! Thanks

Just a little advice: I specifically requested Valeria based on what I heard from past brides and was not disappointed. I didn't have contact with her until the week before the wedding but was not worried because I had Renee, who was my off-site coordinator and was totally wonderful. I didn't have to deal with things that past brides complained about like the outside vendor fees and set up fee for my personal decorations. I just paid the guest pass for my videographer and dj . . . that was it! Mind you, I only told them my guests were providing these service and never mentioned that they were actually local vendors. I had a HUGE bag of decorations and very specific instructions of how everything was suppose to be and Valeria went above and beyond. I was a veryyyy picky bride but got everything I wanted thanks to Renee and Valeria. Be persistent about what you want and what you are NOT willing to pay. I negotiated absolutely everything and got what I wanted in the end. I will post pics soon.

Hi, Our wedding day was amazing :-) We got married at 4pm Tucan gazebo, 11th October 2013 We had our cocktail hour at the Tucan garden and dinner and reception on the Tucan terrace. All perfect :-) The horse and carriage is a must!! We had the mariachi band during the cocktail hour to keep guests busy while we had photos on the beach ect.. They were fantastic and very funny. Even played requests!! Weather was perfect, food was great, we didn't have to do anything but turn up!! Valeria was brilliant, we met with her the day after we arrived at the hotel. We went through the emails I had been sending our off site wedding coordinator (Brenda) and it was very easy. Valeria made us both feel very relaxed about the whole process, she was amazing. We took decorations eg.. Wedding favors, chair sashes, scatter crystals ect. . And Valeria set them up perfectly at no extra cost!! Extra fees weren't even discussed!! Valeria was at all 3 of our private dinners that we had set up and made sure everything was ok before she left. On the wedding day she stayed with us through the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and our reception. I can't recommend her enough, Valeria was brilliant We had PSAV for our audio package and dance floor. All was set up before the ceremony (4pm) very polite and would highly recommend We had Ocean photo studio for our photography and videography. They were great, so friendly. Did all the shots we asked for and so much more. Again I would highly recommend I will post pics soon xx

Hi, has anyone had Miriam as a coordinator? Our wedding is next Friday, Nov 22nd. :)

 

Random question about the credit for nights redeemed for all recent brides...if you had a credits remaining balance did the resort give you a check for the remaining balance?

 

We reached 82 nights and paid for a 7 night stay for my fiance and I. We just received our purchase order and it it says our credits for nights redeemed is $2,688. Once they deducted our costs (music, horse and carriage, extra hours of reception) the remaining credit is $1,713. I assumed we would get that given back to us since the nights are "complimentary." The PO states that the credit can be used for more wedding extras only. Can any recent brides provide any advice or your own experience for me? :)

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
