@@Tighev I haven't personally as I'm just taking battery operated table lights but we are only catering for one table. Therefore I don't know how dark it will be.

 

They are charging 50usd to hang up some bunting so you may need to check with your WP what they will charge and how many lights you will need depending on how many guests you have.

WAIT!   You have to pay for them to hang the decorations that you're bringing?!   My coordinator has not told me anything about that.   Did you ask, or did they give you that information on their own?    I was planning on bringing some little decorations for the table (runner, battery operated tea lights, napkin rings, and menu cards).  I'm also bringing favors (mexican blankets) which I was assuming they would display on a separate "favor table." I got a small banner to hang on the favor table, more battery operated tea lights, and a framed sign.     And lastly, I was going to bring my own string lights.  I had no clue they were going to charge to set up my decorations.  Wow I'm in shock.   Please share the information you received.

 

I'm kinda annoyed right now. It took my WP 2.5 weeks to respond to my last email. I emailed her some questions earlier today anticipating another 2.5 week wait time for those answers. Meanwhile learning this information just left me with a thousand more questions. And I need to make final decisions because the wedding is in 2 months.   :angry:

 

This forum is a blessing!  Everyone is so helpful.

@@Tighev I understood that if its anything that needs to be hung up from theceiling beams then yes, they are charging 50usd for maintenance to sort this out.

 

I've described the table decorations I'm bringing in an email and this will all be sorted by the WP. I didn't get into any further discussion as the buntings I have arent ones that need to be hung from the ceiling beams so I'll discuss this when I get there. How the decorations are to be arranged is discussed when you arrive.

 

I put my final decision in almost 2 weeks ago of which my WP has acknowledged and I'm now just waiting for final cost confirmation.

 

I would just email again like I do asking for a response and update

 

I sent an email of all questions I had and I received a response back quite quickly.

@@Tighev below is a copy of my question and the response I received.

 

3. I will bring various table decorations and bunting to be hung up, is this ok? The table tea lights will be battery operated (I will bring the required number of batteries), we can discuss when I arrive how I would like the table decorated

 

Response from WP

This is great! You can give me the decorations at our meeting. For the bunting there is a fee to hung it up as this will require maintenance assistance. The fee is 50usd..

@@lynne1609   You are wonderful!  Thank you so much for all your help and information.    I'm going to give my WP a few days to respond before I send another email. In the past, it become confusing when I sent a second email before she responded to the first.   I will definitely do what you said and give her a detailed description of the decorations I'm bringing and my idea for a favor table. Hopefully she will provide me with some useful information.

@@Tighev You're welcome. I can become quite frustrating when your only communication route is via email.

 

I just emailed a list of questions/concerns (I think I had 10 questions) and Alejandra my WP provided me with as much information as possible.

 

If I can help any further then just post and I'll respond if I know.

 

Everything is creeping up so fast.

@@Tighev I just asked about having lights hung a couple weeks ago and she confirmed its a $50 fee for them to hang your own lights. I actually think that's pretty fair. I think other resorts charge a LOT more just to put out any decorations. I just ordered a bunch of different string lights from target as they are on sale and I'm going to see which ones I like best.  The key is to make sure you can string together multiple strands. Some of the cheap ones you can only string together 2 or so strands. One girl suggested bringing them down in a cooler and just checking the cooler since the sides are heavy.

 

Regarding responsiveness, Thamara got back to me a couple weeks ago and mentioned that it is their busiest time of the year and they have barely been in the office for the past few weeks. I guess with up to 3 weddings a day that makes sense so I'm going to try and hold off on any questions I have for her since my wedding is a ways out!

@@kjb0528     Thanks for all your information!   I agree that $50 is reasonable...I was just feeling frustrated because it took so long for her to respond to my last email and many of my questions weren't really answered. I also mentioned that I was going to be bringing some decorations down and Thamara never mentioned anything about fees for hanging things. So I was surprised and got a little nervous that there may have be other things that I wasn't aware of that are important.

 

When I first booked my wedding, I would gather some questions for like 2 months before I would email her and then send them all at once. But now that it's so close and I need to order things and make decisions, I'm freaking out a little bit.  haha    I thought that as the wedding got closer, she would respond more quickly. But that's not necessarily what's happening.

Hello Everyone. Hope the wedding planning is going smoothly. For any of the brides that are getting married on the beach, are you wearing shoes? If so are you putting 'planks/walkway down or going barefoot?

One question I have for anyone who has already married, for the blood tests do they take blood or is it a thumb prick?  Just curious as I have a H2B terrified of needles.... :lol:

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
