Hi all - Thank you for all the information. I am getting married at BP in November 2014 - umm, any day now! We have to finalize our buffet/cocktail app choices ASAP. There was a little confusion in the timing of this between the offsite and onsite coordinators. What appetizer/buffets has anyone chosen? What did you love/hate? I would LOVE LOVE some input!

 

Thanks!


OH - and did anyone do a farewell brunch? We are planning to, but they told us that the sky terrace and palenque terrace are super sunny in the morning and we would need to rent umbrellas from outside vendors. It is quite a lot of money for an event that I think people will trickle in and out of. Can anyone comment on whether these locations would be good for a brunch? Thanks!!!

@@rrstripes - We were told the same for the terraces, so we nixed our welcome brunch idea and decided to go w/ a dinner instead.  Of course, this means we need to rent lighting instead of umbrellas, but we figured it'd still be more comfortable

 

And ditto on hearing the buffet choices others have made!

@@tygrrlily - We sent across our food options and asked for our WC's opinion. We went with the Mexican Apps and Mexican Buffet for a welcome dinner on the beach. We went with International Apps and Cajun Buffet for our wedding. Cajun was my finance's choice!  We are still trying to figure out our rehearsal dinner - as we do not want to have it on the Infinity Terrace, but we are trying to confirm other locations or restaurants. Currently we picked Worldwide Apps and BBQ dinner for rehearsal if we get it planned. I wanted Italian and the wedding planner said that the Italian was popular, but my finance really doesn't like italian. We are doing the Mexican breakfast buffet for lunch and asked to have salsa, guac and tortillas included, if not already.

 

Just some ideas:)

@@rrstripes - we've sent in ours too but haven't heard back yet. We made a few substitutes - you're allowed to as long as it's like for like.

 

We're having 3 events:

 

Welcome dinner on palenque terrace. We chose Mexican apps and Caribbean buffet w a couple substations from the Mexican buffet

 

Rehearsal dinner/white party on infinity terrace. Don't love the infinity terrace but didn't want to pay the set up fee for the beach and wanted to have it at a different location. We chose BBQ buffet

 

Wedding at sky terrace. We chose cold hors d'oeuvres w some subs and Italian buffet but subbed the lasagna for the steak from the French.

 

Who are you going w for your decor? I've gotten quotes from Latin Asia and Zuniga

@@tygrrlily - thanks! I just made a few subs to the menu. I used Zuniga for some stuff, but also got centerpieces from another company (can't quite remember the name - will look for it). They created centerpieces are supposed to be just like some pictures I found on Pinterest (for around $40 - so not cheap at all, but cheaper than trying to carry/ship everything!).

@@TheBHolders - no there are a couple others. Ask your WC but I know for right now at least grupo gama and Latin Asia. Not sure for 2015 or 2016

 

@@rrstripes - we were going with Zuniga but I'm pricing out Latin Asia and well probably just go for whoever is cheaper

Hi Ladies,

 

Can anyone tell me about how much your wedding guests are having to pay for their rooms per night? I have a travel agent and it really seems to me that she may not be providing us with good pricing. I would think there would be at least a slight discount considering the number of rooms we are booking. Thanks for your help!

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
