Thanks!

I'm not sure if the actual package has tax, but I know everything else does. When I say everything, I mean everything, lol. It would not surprise me if there was to be honest.

Hi ladies!! I need some help! We choose the divine package but may switch to eternity based off of what we want and the price. Can anyone let me know why you chose the package that you did, as this may help me decide. I was also wondering if anyone has pics of what the pergola looks like set up with the divine package compared to the etermity. I want to get the tiffany style chairs, which is part of why i am thinking of switching the packages. I also am wondinring if anyone has any experices they can share regarding flower choices for the bouquets. The examples they show Im not really a fan of. And lastly, lol, i want to possibly do some sort of welcome for our guests, is anyone doing that, or has done it? What did you do? Planning from afar has been challenging and I appreciate any advice or feedback that can be given:)

Hey ladies,

 

Just checking in to see if we have a choice of what to use for bamboo vs. a floral overhang during the ceremony. Is this extra?  It was on the sheet to choos and wasn't sure if it was part of the eternity package.  Also does Pilar help you with selecting your times for the wedding to run through? This too was on the sheet and no idea how to make this run.  Has anyone just done the hotels photographer?  We are debating about doing the photographer there or save our money.  Can we give our thoughts on flowers for bouquets?? or is just whats in the pictures?  Appreciate any advice and help!! Thank you!!

I chose the Divine Package for the videography and live music. Also, it comes with a few extras that the eternity doesn't. I started off with the eternity but change to Divine. The tiffany style chairs aren't included in either package. 

 

We want to do some kind of welcome for our guest as well. I think we will just have cocktails in the Lobby Bar. Pilar said she can block of a small section for us if we are only having cocktails. I will put this in my welcome letter. I'll word it some way for the guest to know that it's an after dinner thing that way they know to eat before they come since there will be no food.

I'm not sure about your first few questions but we too are using the resort photographer. I've read alot of people complaining about the quality of pics from the resort but I honestly didn't think they were terrible. Sure, there are better out there but we just cannot afford hiring an outside photographer. I'm sure the resorts photographer will be fine. As for the flowers, I think you can send her a pic of the bouquet you like and she'll let you know if they can do it and how much it cost. I will probably just pick something when we get there. Flowers aren't a huge deal to me. I just want something tropical and pretty ;)

Sorry, what's a terlace? All the packages come with chairs white chair covers. You can add colored chair bows at an extra cost per chair. Most brides bring their own, it's alot cheaper!

We are sending out invites mid January for our June wedding. Asking for RSVP's by mid March. I'm telling guest i need a head count at 3 months even though it's actually less than that. But for my own sanity, I need to know so I can get everything finalized. I know not everyone will RSVP by then (& we may have some people book last minute) but the way I see it, if you don't know if you're leaving the country in 3 months, then I'll mark you down as a no. So I'd say send out your invites no later than June for your November wedding. Just my opinion! 

 

I made a postcard style RSVP card (including meal choices) with my invites on vistaprint. I chose postcards to save on postage and envelopes instead of normal rsvp cards.

I put 2 meal choices (beef filet & shrimp, and scallop & mahi mahi) and instructed guest to initial their dinner meal preference.

shannon thanks for your thoughts on the photographer.  I'm not super picky, just the costs from the outside photographers were fairly expensive. Also I was referring to the thing you stand under when you get married, can't remember exact name.  They gave an option of flowers vs. bamboo to use.  Wasn't sure if that was extra or not.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
