Hi Belovedbride and Bksweetheart!  Looks like there are a handful of other 2013 brides as well!  I'm excited to hear about how all the planning is coming together and also any advice from former Beloved brides!  Have you decided on your menu?  It sounded like you pick 1 menu and add another main course option.  Has anyone mixed & matched items from different menus?  So excited and looking forward to hearing from everyone!

Hi,

I'm having a wedding 11/13 I was there this past Thanksgiving and I did a tasting.  We are having a sit down dinner the options are a bit limited but we were able to mix menu's.  You will have a choice of a soup, salad 2 main courses for guest to pick from I did the salmon and the chicken and then a desert.  I choose to do tarts instead of cake (its has a $5pp extra charge) but they do include a 10 person cake.  The hotel is beautiful and Alejandro is extremely helpful but very busy so It may take him a few days to reply to emails but dont worry he's on top of everything.

Congrats suzanni84!  Sounds like you're all set and on top of things!  And you're so lucky to be able to mix-and-match menus!  I don't think I'm allowed to do that but we're also debating about doing a buffet to give people more options. Hmm...so many choices!  I might do the same about the cake and just go with the tarts/desserts from the menus.  What time is your ceremony?  I was thinking if it begins at 4pm and ends around 4:30pm, then cocktail hour will be from 4:30pm-5:30pm and then a 3 hour reception would mean we end at 8:30pm!  Kinda early!  Would love to hear about what others are doing with the timing.  Anyone starting cocktail hour a bit later?  Not sure what to do...thanks!

Hi Everyone,

 

I have tentatively booked my wedding date in August 2013 in the Beloved but I'm having so much trouble trying to arrange a group contract.  I will have guests travelling from UK, USA and Australia and the hotel seems not to be responding to my Travel Agent.  I'm using one in Australia where I am living now.

 

Can anyone offer any help or advice or did anyone have the same problems with the Groups Department in the hotel?

 

I'm really close to just giving up... and I've not even started with the wedding planning!!!

 

Thanks

 

Nicola

I'm also just going to use their DJ, DJ Mannia which I have prices on as well. I pretty much have all the prices, bouquet, cake, reception menu, decor book etc. feel free to private message me ur email and maybe we can swap info that we've gotten. it is slightly frustrating that their website isn't helpful and staff takes a while to respond to emails and I also understand that our wedding is a ways away.

Hi dmccamey!

Very much appreciated! Thanks :) My e-mail address is s.coumbs@hotmail.com.

Hey Nicola, sorry to hear that your TA is having trouble getting in touch with the Groups Department!  That's so odd because my TA had no troubles and they responded fairly quickly.  I'm sure the time difference doesn't help!  Don't give up!  Did you try asking Alejandro about it?  Perhaps letting him know that you are close to giving up will at least possibly result in him reaching out to the group bookings department and see what's happening?  I hope things work out for you!  Keep us posted!

I was going to start around 4 as well because I want it to still be light enough for photos after the ceremony.  I was thinking of seeing if we could extend the cocktail hour and extra 30 min, we are having a lounge area set up in the sand and having a trio band play for 45 min. Then I was going to ask them to extend the reception for an extra hour (I'm sure and extra cost will be applies) They have the lupita lounge that stays open until midnight so I figured we could move over there if people still wanted to stay out.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
