Happy new year ladies!  

 

I'm just a few weeks away and it's crunch time!  

 

For those doing a night time reception on the terraces, are you going with the extra lights or no lights?  I asked Ramon several times and he has reassured me that the standard lighting is sufficient; however, I'm concerned it might still be too dark.

In November the sun sets very early.  During our dinner it was dark and the lighting supplied by the resort was perfect!  You have nothing to worry about.  Trust in Ramon, he knows what he is doing and is wonderful!!

@@jh0510038, I'll be there right after you!  I'm still waiting on some confirmations from Ramon as well and am starting to get a bit nervous.  We haven't sent our wedding form in because we haven't finalized everything... Ah!

It's ok to send it in before things are finalized.  The form is to give the planners a good idea of what you want and to get the ball rolling before you arrive.  I left a LOT on my form blank when I sent it in.  At the meeting we had with Ramon 2 days before the wedding we went over the entire form and he helped us fill in the blanks.  He provided great suggestions for things I was not certain of.

 

Things will be wonderful!  Try not to stress ;)

This was included for us in the Divine package.  You list the ingredients for your signature cocktail in the planning form that is sent in 30-40 days prior to your wedding.  We for some reason had 2 signature cocktails - one during cocktail hour and then a second different drink (again your choice) was served with dinner- after appetizers before the main course.  I thought it was a nice touch!

Yes the signature drink is included in the Divine package and as Dina Q to be said the planning form give you an option for the cocktail hour and one during the reception.

Hey all!  I am getting to the point where I need to decide if I am going to ship stuff to the resort in advance or carry it all down with us.  I like the idea of it being there ahead of time, but also I'm nervous about things going missing, or not arriving in time.  Did anyone ship down there?  what was your experience?

Has anyone used or using Floreria Riviera for their flowers? Had contact with?

I reached out to them in November, made arrangements, and paid for my flowers (a lot of money). I now cannot get in contact with Alina. I have reached out twice now and no luck. The facebook page is no longer available as well as twitter. My wedding is ten days away. FREAKING OUT!

Worst case scenario you can still likely get flowers from the resort (at least the ones included in your package!).

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
