We leave in 30 days - I can't wait. It is currently pouring in Chicago, and some 80+ degree and sun sounds amazing! Time has flown. I can't believe my bachelorette is this weekend! We're doing a BYOB painting class in Chicago, then a BYOB sushi dinner, and out :) Sam's is this weekend too. Thank god strip clubs skeeve him out, I won't have to worry! They're just going to a hockey game.

11 Days........down to 11 days until I leave......WOW, the time sure flew by!

I've got almost everything packed plus a little extra. Monday the 15th is my day of beauty (last tan session, waxing session, eyelash extensions, hair cut/color, nails, toes, and eyebrows) and then on the 16th I have a 10 hour drive to my FI in WV. Meeting up with my MOH on the 17th to figure out how to get all this crap....I mean wonderful wedding stuff in the 3 suitcases I am taking. Then Friday the 19th we are on our way!!!! CANNOT wait!!!!

Feeling a bit overwhelmed, but hanging on!!!

We did not, we used an Ipod and hooked it up to their big speakers because we wanted to save money on our end and it worked really well. 

We also did the Ipod and hookup to Speakers... One of our guest announced the first dances at the very beginning when we entered and then we controlled the music the rest of the night and had a blast people were up dancing all night long and we had about 41 guest there including us.

We got married Feb 15th and we have not received our either... I was not really going to worry about it until it was past 60 days. I figured it is like getting you Passport. It is going through a government and they are never in a hurry with important documents.

I remember reading that someone had something streamed at EDR and it was very reasonable, can you remind me what the cost was?

My mom was considering packing a steamer, but I didn't think it was necessary.

Anyone remember????

I had my wedding dress steamed for about $15. They did a fantastic job with it! They picked it up Saturday morning, and returned it that same afternoon (the laundry is closed on Sundays, and our wedding was Monday). They hung it up on the curtain rod in our room wrapped in a couple of white sheets (so my husband couldn't see it before our wedding day).

 

The prices are listed in pesos on the laundry sheet in the closets.

 

If you need the steamer for your dress, I'd just let the resort do it. Just be sure to remove any removable pieces (e.g. corset laces, belts, etc.). If it's for every day or dinner clothes, they do have an iron w/ steam capabilities in each room.

Did anyone get the dress laundered, after the ceremony, at the resort?  Thinking about doing it there instead of here.  I plan on wearing it again for my AHR.

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you

    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
