Hey Ladies, I have a question: Do I NEED to have OOT bags?

 

I'm asking because it's not like any of my guests haven't travelled before and, well, they should know what to bring. I find it more of a pain than anything. I've never been to a destination wedding so I don't know if I am expected to make them. HELP!

you don't need to do OOT bags no one expected them, but I have to say they were fun to put together and I loved how much everyone else loved them and were surprised by them. Plus it was exciting to see everyone using their beach bags at the pool or their key holders around their wrist. I didn't do mugs but saw plenty of people from other wedding parties using thier bubba drink cups. It was worth it for me to do.

HI Ladies-

I have posted my wedding review for anyone who is interested...whew, it took forever but I wanted to write it while everything was still fresh in my mind.

 

The one thing that I forgot when I posted it was about customs and forms. When you complete the customs forms you need to ensure that you keep that little stub of paper with you because they will collect it when you board the plane back to the US. We went down as 4 (mom, our son, hubs and I) but my Mom came back with our son the day after the wedding so we could have some grown up time. The customs agent when we came through mixed up my husband and son's slip of paper and it lead to lots of delays for my Mom and for us when we came back through. So just keep that in mind!

 

You all have been the greatest support network and I have loved this process feeling like we were all in it together. Best of luck to everyone and may you all have long, happy, and joyous marriages!

Getting a boat to dock at Moon Palace would be amazing but i guess that would depend on the boat company as well.. do you know anyone who has done this before? my guess is the on site coordinators would know more then the miami office.. just sucks we cant actually reach them.

I know about the catamaran rental from someone who used that service and loved it. Trip advisor rates it as one of the best tours... its almost like a party boat for 50 people and they have an option for open bar and food based on per person if you want. they add on bus service if you need.

Moon Palace has a dock & I'm hoping to rent the boat and board directly from thier dock instead of having to take a bus somewhere. I'll let you know when I get the information, please do the same! :-) Good luck!

No you def do not have to do OOT bags, Most people have not been to a destination wedding so when they receive such things they are amazed by it. its totally up to you.. My oot is a beach tote with beach towel (monogramed), custom deck of cards , possibly a pashmina and a printed paper of the events organized by me for the guests.

 

You can come up with other things as well

Hi JennyLynn,

Yes, the photography through the resort is Smile Market and I actually talked directly to them to book my photo package. They worked really quick and emailed back so quickly.

 

I spoke to ***** and her contact info is: ***** Nava | SALES CONSULTANT | Smile Market de México SA de CV |

Carret. Cancún-Chetumal Km.340 | Cancún Q.Roo 77500 | 998 881 60 00 Office | 56421 Ext. |

I feel your pain. But I would call the main line (not her extension) and try to talk to someone else and see what they say (I find calling them is WAY more effective than emailing).

Perhaps she said no because she is thinking full table set up? Why not ask them if you can book an area and have Zuniga decorate it or something (like just lights and chairs and a dance floor perhaps? Push for it, don't give up when they say no :)

 

 

 

 

Exactly my thoughts too, CafeDelMar21! I am getting my TA involved since she seems to get through quickly to MP. I will see what they say. Hoping for good news....keeping my fingers crossed! If they offer private functions, why can't I do that but not have the dinner. They hear the word reception and automatically think dinner with dancing but I am trying to do the two separate in order to make it possible. I am sure I am not the only bride who has a small group going. We will soon find out.

Yep, Smile Market is the resort's photographer. So far, I've noticed most of the brides who use them end up loving them. I just couldn't pass up Gonzalo Nunez's work and prices.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
