    Hey Ladies,

     

    We are putting together our webinar schedule for BDW.  These webinars are great because not only can you get YOUR questions answered but also hear answers to questions from other brides that you may not have even though of :)

     

    Webinars are a great way to not only hear directly from the wedding department but see the wedding packages that they offer, ceremony/reception pics, etc.

     

    I try to only limit the webinars to once every 2 weeks so we of course can not do all resorts.

     

    Please vote on which resorts you would like to have webinars on...you can choose more than 1.

      Hi Julie,

      Yes we fly out in 16 days! eek. I'll be off to the gym after this post. lol. My ceremony is at 4:00pm on the North Beach followed by the cocktail hour. Then we are heading over to the Royal to have the reception in their ballroom. I booked DJ Dorremixx and I am still debating on the dance floor as it is quite pricey. I couldn't decide on what to pick for the meal and my family requested more options so we are going with the international buffet - not sure how that will be. At this point I am just going to go with the flow and hope for the best.

        Stacey,

         

        Have you been to the GPR before? I just found a map of the resort this morning.

        Where are you holding the cocktail hour?

        Is the Trade Winds aka for the North Beach??

        How guests are attending?

        When are you coming back?

         

        So excited for you! Please let me know how things go when you return.

          Hi Julie,

          northbeach.GIF

          Thank you so much for the map I'll include these in my welcome letters. The cocktail hour is also on the North Beach. Now that I look at the map I am not exactly sure where the ceremony/cocktail hour is but the picture above is what the coordinator calls the North Beach. I'll update you when I get back on the details.  We have 65 guests attending the wedding which is amazing. Our guests fly home on the 4TH of Feb and we fly home on the 11th. Not sure  where we will stay for our honeymoon. Thinking of Isla Mujeres. Let me know if you have any more questions.   SO EXCITED !!  :)

           

          Take care,

           

          Stacey

            Hi Julie,

             

            I think the North Beach is at the royal. I found a map of it and one bride on here said that it was by Pelicano's restaurant.

              It's coming so soon Stacey!! Good luck, and congratulations!  Can't wait to hear how it is... we are having our ceremony at North Beach as well, and it would be great to hear how the buffet is!

                  I'd originally planned on just bringing down my own fabric to have the exact colours and save the money... I was told there would be a $150 fee to have it set up, and eventually decided that bringing it would take way too much space! We are still trying to figure out if we are going to pay the extra to have it decorated, or just stick with the chair ties to bring out our colour.

                    I think the chair ties are a great idea to add color! You don't have to worry about what size the Huppah is, how much fabric to buy or have a hard time setting up.
