Hello 2012 Le Blanc Brides

 

I just booked our July 21 2012 le blanc wedding!!

I am very excited, we went on a site visit in December and it was so beautiful

We looked at other resorts as well like Dreams and the Royal but nothing compared

I was looking for more Le blanc brides to post so we can share in the planning process

Le Blanc only lets you bring in approved vendors and things can get pretty pricey

I was wondering how others were handling this...and how the planning was going

Hi Jaclyn! 

 

I'm also a Le Blanc Bride... July 14, 2012!  We are also getting married the same month!!!  Too cool!

 

I also looked at Dreams and the Royal, knowing that Le Blanc was always my #1 choice!   I was starting to think I was the only one

2012 Le Blanc Bride. I'm so glad to have another Le Blanc Bride to chat with. 

 

I went on a site visit about a month ago and they seem to be very strict about the outside Vendor policy as well as the # of guests passes they will allow based on the total number of guests booked and staying at the resort.

 

Well, Happy Planning!  Im sure we will have lots to chat about!

Hi Ladies!

 

I officially decided on Le Blanc for our wedding 8/4/12! We just returned from a site visit and this resort is amazing! So far, I've been getting a regular response to my questions from Yesenia at Palace in Miami.

 

We're trying to decide if we're going to do the group room block directly through Le Blanc or just work directly with a travel agent.

 

Also, Yesenia sent a vendor listing today, so I'm starting to look into that. I really want lounge furniture for the reception, but I'm hoping it's not too expensive.

 

Please feel free to ask me any questions!

Hi Ladies,

 

Update: I decided to hire a wedding designer to handle ALL the decor and such for my wedding at Le Blanc. I have a very specific modern chic theme I'm trying to achieve and hiring this person has taken a load off my back.

 

Question: What are you guys doing about travel for your guests? We want as many people to come as possible so I'm going back and forth with Le Blanc and a trave agent trying to find the best rates/arrangements. However, LeBlanc has the best comps for the bride and groom, but our guest would have to book their flight and room seperately. Also, I wanted my guests to have the option to make payments on their trip over the next year.

 

Thoughts/Suggestions

Who did you hire? or who are you thinking of hiring?  Deco Cancun?

I am using Wendy from Wright Travel--shes amazing ! she Responds so quickly and knows what shes doing !

You would get the promotions Le Blanc offers using a TA, and your guests can make payments over the course of the year

I hired Christopher Confero to do the design and we'll probably need to get some pieces from Deco Cancun.

 

I'm going to talk to Wendy tomorrow. However, I know Le Blanc offers free room nights for the bride and groom and free unlimited private functions, but they say you have to book directly through Le Blanc. I can't wait to hear what options Wendy TA has.

 

What are you doing for DJ and photography? I want to use Del Sol, but I'm not sure I can work it into the budget.

I plan on using Wendy as my Travel Agent as well.  As Jaclyn24 stated, you will be able to get all the same promotions and upgrades if you use a TA. I also like the option of using a TA b/c the guests can make payments over time.

 

Photography: Looking around. But Del Sol is definitely the Dream Photographers to have. I'm pretty sure I wont be using the resort photographer.

 

DJ: I havent looked into any DJ's as of yet.  I see al lot of the Mexico Brides on the forum use DJ Doremixx and DJ Mannia but I dont think they are on the Approved list for Le Blanc or Palace resorts but I'm not sure.  I know that 2 of the previous Le Blanc Brides used the Le BLanc Resort DJ and they were both happy with the Djs provided but they did not remember the names. :-/  I really want a good DJ that is lively and thats going to keep the party going!  

 

I love this!! Lets keep it going!!

 

Happy Planning Ladies!!!

OMG! I'm starting to feel overwhelmed and BROKE (this initial deposits are going to kick my butt!)  BangHead.gif 

 

I checked with the LeBlanc DJ and my only concern is that he said that don't need a song list, they just want to know what type of music the B&G likes. However, we have such a DIVERSE group of friends and music likes, I wanted to make a list of song must haves!

 

What photographer are you going to use from Del Sol? I've been communicating with Matt and he's been AWESOME very responsive, so I will find a way to use them. I can PM their price list if anyone wants.

 

I talked to Wendy on Tuesday and she was AWESOME as well, I'm waiting to get a quote this week. I really want to get my save the dates out no later than early Sept.

 

Also, I found an excellent person for save the dates, invites, etc... Allison Barnhill Designs! No minimums!

 

Oh, I'm not into paying a ton for a wedding especially since I want to do the "Trash the Dress' session and I found a website that I'm going to order my top 3 wedding gowns at least than $250 each! I'm going to sell the ones I don't like on craigslist.

 

I feel like I'm not making any progress, but from reading my post it appears that I have a lot of info! mmmm! stupid.gif

 

 

I think that's all for now.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
