Striving for 150!!!

Recommended Posts

Thanks Ladies..the whole thing about the pants just pisses me off.   I am going to go back myself and try again and then try another of the same stores because it's totally bullshit.

 

MissDe- honestly from what I've seen from resort Photographers you're probably better off!!  Sometimes the Resort Photog's kinda suck and are literally the same guys who walk around with monkey's and iguana's and take photos' of people on the beach with them. definitely not pro's.

 

My Balloons were white, green and purple - those are my colors.   I originally wanted the chinese lanterns, but they told me they could not hang them so I can't use those..so that's why I thought balloons would be perfect - light, easy to carry, and then they said they could blow them up with helium.  Obviously lost in translation because they don't have helium there.

 

Jolene - for the group quotes for 2012 vs 2013...it sucks she made a mistake..you're still early for the 2013 packages so maybe wait a few weeks and then try again for quotes?  Also it might be a good idea to shop around a bit - find a destination wedding specialist or group travel specialist in your area.  As for flights from Winnipeg - better to know now, than to book it and then have them cancel it later, which does happen!    I bet if you just wait and re-request the rates it'll get a bit better.  I too think $1900 for anywhere in Varadero is a bit high.  My price is $1600 per person for early Dec for my group from Edmonton..Calgary should be similar you'de think.

I really hope things work out.  Is the policy in writing? And do you have the receipt from the last purchase? Also, correspondence: do you have the quoted price written down? try to fight it all.  I know it's a hassle but its not right.  good luck!

I agree! Stress free is the goal. We have to all keep in touch. I am hoping to have 90% done 3 months prior which means by thanksgiving 2013 I want to be done so I can enjoy turkey day, christmas, new years and our valentines day wedding. #irie

I agree |about the keeping in touch I am sure that there will be plenty more that we have to complain whine and bitch about plus all the good stuff that we will share together over the next year!

 

I really havent started other than trying to get the travel agangements organized, and I have my DIY Boarding passes pretty much done on the computer and save to a flash drive (incase something happens to my computer) but other than that I havent even bought paper or anything for them, I am not entirely sure why I am holding off, I am sure that I will regret that, especially the more time I spend on here the more stuff I want to do for my wedding. Actually today I am going dress shopping for the first time!!!

Oh no! DwBride, I'm so sorry to hear about all the disappointments. That really is a neat decoration concept that I hadn't seen before. It is frustrating waiting for a direct answer sometimes. I emailed our resort's photographer twice and asked our WC to contact them, because I wasn't hearing from them (still haven't heard anything from them to this day). This was at least 3 weeks ago. So, instead of going with the resort's photographer and saving us the $300 outside vendor fee, we are going with a different photographer. Even if we have to suck it up and pay an ungodly amount of money just to have another photographer come in, it will be worth it not to use the resort's photographer that can't even respond to a simple email.

 

 

I would pay the money to have a photographer that I could trust, there is no way that you need to add the extra stuff... although I have read that a lot of time it takes people at the resort forever to get back to you about things, but that is neither here nor there and waiting 3 weeks is not cool no matter what! That really sucks but dont worry it will all work out!

Oh I just realized.... this is my 150 post!!!! YAY I have been waiting a long time for this, maybe I should have just paid to be a supporter so that it didnt take this much work, although I am not sure that I would have contributed as much if I didnt have to work for it, and then I wouldnt have been ablt to share and talk toa ll of you!!!!!!! Templates here I come!!!!!

Congrats Jolene!!  I am only a few posts away!  Honestly I wouldn't have minded paying, but I didn't see anywhere to pay..I'm not really computer saavy..so it's easier for me to just make posts lol.

 

I'm bringing 2 photographers with me (that was their package, 2 for the price of 1), and it worked out great because we got 2 free passengers for the trip due to our group size, so we only paid taxes and their package price.

 

So anyways..Cherie - I had planned on having everything done 3 months before and then summer hit and I got seriously lazy..and now I'm scrambling.  But at this point I've decided I'm not planning anything else,   basically I tried planning it perfectly and things werent working out, and I was just disappointed, so now I'm going to just take it as it comes.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
