2015 Bride Here :)

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon ladies!! It's been awhile since I have been on here but, I wanted to share my good news. I finally made my deposit and secured my date for July 18, 2015 at the Gran Caribe Real. I wanted the Gazebo but the max # of guest was 60 ppl so it will be on the beach at 4pm. The reception will be on the rooftop terrace. Working on securing DJ Doremixx. I just received my wedding contract so once that is signed and sent back I can move on to other decisions. My WC is Ana Perez and so far she has been very good and her response has been timely. I am using the Wright Travel Agency and my agent Virgilia has been great. They do not charge to use them and that was a definite plus for me. :D The next big things I am working on are the photographer and videographer then I will feel much better. I will keep you updated as things go along. Happy planning!!

 Thats awesome! do you know if there is a group for 2014/2015 brides at this resort? I did not see any just the 2013 thread :)

Have you heard good reviews of this DJ? I set my wedding date for Feb 2015!  What are you thinking on decorations?

I am working with Ana too.. Did you chose the Albatros terrace?

ladies took me forever to get back in the site do to the new update. love the site now!!!! 2015 bride here so excited!!!!!!! we cant decide on our wedding date we were thinking 9/4/2015 now we are thinking 7/4/2015 and suggestions???

 If you are ok with the heat then thats good!. I went on December and its hot.. i cannot imagine if its hotter i would be melting.. :)

The intense heat starts in May ... and hurricane season is around sept/Oct

We were going to get married in Nov. but my fiance was scared of the rain after the hurricane season so pushed until Feb..

I second that re creativity.  I know it's early but is anyone contemplating a brooch bouquet? Initially I wasn't but am thinking more about it. 

I am, I think they look Amazing!

@make2dayamazing: aren't they?!?! My sister is really artistic and great at DIY projects so I am thinking this may be another bonding project for us. I have to figure out if I will do real flowers or a smaller, less "brooch-filled" version for her. I found a few Etsy sellers that sell brooches and buttons in bulk. Now to research real looking flowers....

@@girlinthecity97 i'm thinking about including some brooches in my bouquet but not an entire brooch one.

 

@Make2dayAmazing I know! These people are amazing with their ideas and their follow through. I've been working passport mailers and i've already spent about 4 hours on them and they're not even close to being done!

hi @@amarie4713 - i hear ya and agree. i'm torn between going heavy or interspersing brooches throughout. I saw great pics and examples on google/etsy. i'm guessing my sister's willing/unwilling participation will be the deciding factor re how little or how much bling will be added. :) though i have a feeling she may veto the idea....she doesn't know it yet, but i want her to trick out my shoes like she did her own for her wedding.  :D

    • 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.
