I have the Divine Package as well. MAC seems to be a good product for makeup so I'm not worried there. I am worried about the stylist's experience with my hair texture though! LOL. My sister, who's also a hair stylist, is my Maid of Honor. I think I'm going to assign this as one of her duties!

Hello Ladies!!!! I hope wedding planning is going well! I am confirmed for 12/13/14 at 3pm and my wedding coordinator is also Luisa Miranda. She took a while to send me paperwork but so far so good. I want to let you ladies know I will actually be taking a trip to Now Larimar end of September. I will take some pics and post them and also let you know what I thought about the resort.

Congrats everyone!! It's so exciting to hear everyone's plans and get another opinion. Our wedding is Jan 28/14. We are booked for a 3pm wedding at the fountain and a 6:30 pm reception on the beach. I am leaning towards getting the fountain setup ($1500), but it just seems so crazy for a 20 min ceremony. We are getting a dance floor for the beach reception, but just renting the sound system, so will play music off of an IPod instead of paying for a DJ. We are extending the ceremony for an hour, then heading to the Eclipse nightclub afterward!! We will have around 20 ppl there.

For the day of the wedding I have rented the bridal suite, we have the Divine Package, so hair/makeup is included. My bridesmaids and some family are going to get hair/makeup done too! We are having an outside photographer, Karina Jensen, because photos are the most important part to me so I'm willing to dish out the $500 vendor fee. Just have to work a little extra before the wedding!

 

I've been looking at wedding favours/accessories and like so many things from The Knot.com, then I realized that they don't ship to Canada!!! Is anyone else using parasols for the bridal party/pictures?? Or hand fans for the guests? I'm wondering where to get them from now.

 

My wedding planner was Silvia, and I just recently got an email saying it is now Yakayra. Before they switched I had been waiting for Silvia to check on availability of the judge for a legal ceremony. When they switched WC's I had to start all over again with this process and have not heard back from Yakayra. It's been over 2 months of waiting!! Any one else trying to arrange a legal ceremony???

 

 

Thanks ladies!!

I was reading on a general forum thread about site visits. Apparently this can be negotiated with the resorts. Has anyone done this or attempted to do this with Now? Did they offer you a free or reduced stay?

@Kristina Simms - Could you just have your items shipped directly to the resort???

    • 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.
