      Every day I check the weather it changes. But it just seems to be rain the whole week I am down there, thus far. If I know Mexico, most of it will be like 1 hour showers in the afternoon, then clear skies. The only thing I'm worried about is that all my events are outside and there's going to be tons of mosquitos out right after the rain...ugh. Oh well. 6 days until I leave!!!!!! yay

        Anyone have location suggestions for rehearsal dinner and meet and greet?

         

        How about telling my guests to just meet at the sunrise swing bar for the meet and greet? good or bad idea?

         

        Also are people tipping their wedding planners and photographers and djs. how much?

         

        Thanks ladies, cant do this without you

         

         

        Curly -

         

        I had my guests meet at swing bar and we had no trouble getting reservations for 23 that night and the next two nights we also had big group dinners never a problem and wih a big group they give you a waiter so it is just like a private reception.

         

        We tipped our WC and her assistant $75 because she gave us two extra day passes for random people who booked the week of the wedding at other resorts, she looked the other way on my flowers...since I got Marvin who is fab! She also gave me instead of the complimentary bouquet, white pedals for our guests to throw at us. Super nice of her.

         

        Del Sol worked things out so I didn't have to pay the vendor fee, we got them two day passes and I think we forgot to tip them :-(    Talk to Del Sol hopefully they can work out a deal with MP for others because my photos are fantastic!!!!!!!!! Coordinator also set up my decorations for me at the cocktail and dinner but I didn't have much. We danced in the dance area and it was fine, the guests (and the place was full with the dream trips) let us have two songs on the dance floor alone!

         

        Check out Del Sol's photo's of our wedding!!! http://delsolphotogr...leries/?gal=803

         

        I posted my stuff for sale too if anyone is interested.

          I just paid my PO in full this week (I leave wednesday...crazy!)  I think they have to get your CC info at some point if you have unlimited events so they can refund your hotel stay...apparently they refund after the trip.


           Whaat?!! I definitely did not get that information!

              Yes, they refund after the trip, and I'm not sure how long it takes to get the reimbursement.

                Ok I just wanted to give you ladies a little bit of a heads up.  We got here today at around noon, and I have been crying ever since.  It is awful. An absolute nightmare.  First of all, if you are booked in the Sunrise section- GET IT CHANGED ASAP!!!  This is a damn construction site.. literally.  The lobby was full of drilling, hammers & drywall dust.  Then our room wasn't ready because somebody was still in it.. so we were told it would be a "few hours".  So in the meantime, we were forced to listen to a TIMESHARE SALES PITCH by a pushy salesperson, pressuring us to meet him for breakfast tomorrow morning "for a quick information session".  Um, no thanks.

                Then we were put in to a temporary room while we waited for ours, and we had to walk like half a mile THROUGH A CONSTRUCTION ZONE, complete with all of us getting construction dust in our eyes as we walked like 3 ft away from people drilling into the ground and laying concrete.  Nice.  The hallway of our section of Sunrise is covered in dust, nails, trash, and weird somewhat-skanky guests that look like they were given a free room in lieu of a free timeshare seminar.  

                Long story short, we raised holy hell to have us and all of our guests moved to Nizuc.  Thank God our families don't get here until tomorrow- I would have been mortified to have them see this.  I can't even describe how horrible it is.  Sitting here crying as I type this post.  This has been horrible.  This "dream wedding" I have been planning for the last 8 months has just crumbled in a matter of minutes.  I have been living & breathing this wedding, ensuring every detail is perfect.. this couldn't be any less perfect if it tried- it's the complete polar opposite.  

                Oh and we were starving so we went to for dinner at Bugambilia- and I can't convey how horrible it was.  Nasty, gelatinous old food.  I ate chips & salsa, my daughters had fries.  That's it.  I took a bite of one of the desserts and had to spit it out and thought I was going to puke.  


                I'll give more details later.. just wanted to tell you this in case you are coming here any time soon and are staying at Sunshine.  The guy at the desk told us that our travel agent would have been notified of the construction.. I don't know how true that is, but regardless, I'm pissed.  And sad.  God this is a nightmare.

                  thats aweful that you are off to such a rough start..but just think it can only get better from here..and your wedding will be here before you know it. please try to relax and just think..years from now you will be able to laugh this all off hopefully!

                    Oh My. I am so sorry. I feel for you. This would be the thing to make me go Bridezilla postal. I'm glad you moved your reservation. You should try to sample a few meals at other restaurants and know which to eat at so when guests get there you can suggest the good spots and have them avoid the bad ones. 

                     

                    Breathe- have a glass of champagne (don't know if you drink lol) And think about your wedding. You have time to be a demanding diva and straighten them out before the actual wedding. You will be a beautiful bride. Your family is on their way. It will work out. I'm rooting for you 


                    Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

                      Well ladies I JUST got my reimbursement check this week....it's only been almost 6 months since my wedding.  The last email I sent I threatened a lawyer and mentioned all the credit card fraud- I never received a response but a week later I got the check.  So ladies if you are getting the run around after the wedding I suggest threatening a lawyer!
