Just found out I have over 60 room nights so I get a free 2 hr event. We were originally going to do a cocktail hour, now we are extending it to a 3 hr buffet/music event. We are doing the complimentary package. Does anyone know if they will provide any type of centerpiece or napkins for color? Ive heard conflicting reports

I've heard that they only do white table cloths for the complimentary package. I'm going to do it as cheaply as possible, get the complimentary package and DIY most of my decor and have family lay it out once it's setup. Their prices are just ridiculous!

Agreed! But I also dont want to take bags and bags of decor with me. At HRPC they will give you some things. I think I might wait til I get there. I know there is a Walmart in the area if need be

Just know, their Walmart, Costco and Sam's club are not even close to what you get here. Very limited.

Hi fellow brides, Congratulations to all of you! I JUST booked my wedding for NOV 16/17, 2013 (<--- yes, this year!!!!) at Moon Palace in Riviera Maya/Cancun. I'm full of excitement and of course stress!!!! We have to do a totally last-minute wedding due to family illness and I've taken the plunge.

WOW! Congrats! That's our 2 year anniversary! I have my website through our TA, but I know of many! My favorite that you can "pay" for is: Appy Couple. I really wish I would have just paid the $29, but my invites already went out with my first one, so I think it's too late to change it...

 

Anyways, good luck and I can't wait to hear about it and see how the "last minute" planning works! What collection are you doing?

    • 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.
