Now Jade 2012 Bride

Which package did you go with?? Did you just do item to item?? That seems awefully expensive.  IS there any option you recommend?? i'm debating about music as the cost is somewhat high for not being part of the divine package.  Does the guitarist only play for the wedding ceremony or at dinner??  Thanks if you happen to see this....Cortney =)

Hi Dana, are you using a package deal or are you going with individual prices??  I attempted that and became extremely expensive fast.  Just wondering also, not that I'll have 45 people, but what did they start charging per person following 25 alotted for the Divine package?  I like the set up of that package or maybe the one before that and add in a photographer.  Anything you have to offer is much appreciated!!

Kerri- I am trying not to bring too much either! I have koozies for favors, I'm bringing paper lanterns but I'm not sure about lights yet. I'm bringing table runners, paper straws, and door hangers for part of a welcome gift. I am going to have a bottle of champagne sent to everyone's rooms when we arrive so that I don't have to bring anything for OOT bags. I'm going to give our parents and sisters and my nephews their gifts before we leave for Mexico that way I don't have to travel with them! I have not been in touch with our officiant...I don't even know who our officiant is. I'm actually hoping that they just use whatever they have because I am not good at that stuff! As much as I would love to do a TTD session I can't because we are having a reception back here where I am wearing my dress. I'm thinking maybe for our one year I can do a session but we will see! Who is your photographer? That would be awesome if we were on the same flight as some of your family!

 

Meagan - I have Pilar as my coordinator...she has been great! Apparently she is the one handling all of the weddings now since Ana isn't there anymore.

 

Cortney - We went with the divine package and I just switched stuff out that I knew I wasn't going to use or want. I didn't have any problems doing this! I think the guitarist in the package can play for whatever you want them to play...I wanted to have a DJ instead so I switched that out. I think your best bet is to talk to Pilar about what it is that you want and go from there! She seems to be very accomadating! Good luck. :)

Thanks KitKat!

   I have Pilar also and I was hoping she'd be flexible with the package.  We are going to meet with her on our site visit this June and I'm hoping to negotiate some things :-)

Hi Meagan,

I was in on the webinar last weekend. It went alright. There wasn't too much information that I wasn't already aware of from reading their wedding guide online and looking on here. The only real info that I got from it was to book the spa 45 days ahead of time to make sure that you get it for your hair and make up. Also, they do have Tiffany chairs but they are at a cost of 10 +tax per chair... too much for me for sure... I'll just be going with the white chair covers and bring my own bows. Also, the round tables hold 6-10 people and the long table holds 40 people.. In addition, if you go with thier package and photographer, you can purchase the cd with all your pictures on it for 350 dollars.

So, actually learned a bit now that I reread that post. We're going for a on site visit next week so I'm super excited!

Is that CD with all the pictures on it edited or just in RAW format?

    • 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.
