Hi @@WesnKris Im hoping to get married in the Rose hall area on 04/24/15. We are currently looking at the aqueduct for our venue, but are not sure about our reception. Have you done a site tour of the Iberostar hotels? Also, do you have a wedding planner or will you doing all of the planning? I don't know where to begin :)Thanks so much for your help!

@@skelly0386...I did a site visit to Iberostar Grand and Rose Hall.  Very nice accommodations. My issue was I like the wedding location Rose Hall and the reception location at Grand....however, you can't switch up.  You have to do both the ceremony and the reception at the same hotel.  So I am now looking at Secrets and Royalton White Sands because based on the pics I like there ceremony and reception locations better.  I am going on another site visit June 6th so I will post pictures.

Thank  you @@FutureMrsGlover! We will be having our wedding at the aqueduct and reception at the Iberostar Grand. We went on a site tour of the Grand and I did not like their ceremony options, so we decided to just have our reception at the port maria restaurant and wedding offsite. We put down the deposit and everything seems to be falling in place. Good luck with your June 6th visit :)

Hey everyone! My fiancée and I have booked our wedding at the Suites for October 24th, 2015! I am so excited!

So far I am looking into outside photographers as the resort photographers prices are outrageous for what you get. I have received my save the dates and will be mailing those out next week! I haven't decided on details like ceremony location or reception yet bc it all depends on our final guest count. We really want a beach reception but I've heard stories of being too windy etc so I am sort of skeptical on that.

How is everyone on the planning process? I had my invitation saved online but I guess it's gone now :( I searched through hundreds of invites on the site I had it saved from but no luck :( I've chosen a new invitation though, will probably be mailing those out at the beginning of the year. I've been thinking about decor and things but haven't made any final decisions. I'm also waiting to go dress shopping so I can go with my mom back home in Boston. Since we decided to not have a bridal party, I'm finding it hard to pick a color theme! I really love coral and teal so I may try to find a few things in those colors to add to the ceremony decor. I've seen some brides with colored sashes they brought for the chairs and little starfish attached. Anyone know where I can find those? They're so cute.

@@helenk its so funny. You're the one with the date lol

 

I choose that date and had to change to the day before because it was booked. I never imagined that it would be book so early.

 

You can get sashes from tablecloth factory. They usually have anywhere for 20-35%off. The stars you can get from micahels, oriental trading, i dont know if you live near a bealls outlet, hobby lobby.

@@helenk yep will be there at the same time.

 

I'm using allinclusiveoutlet.com as my agent 3nights @$540 pp w/$50 deposit and $178 for each addl night.

 

This includes transportation to and from the airport/hotel. I haven't signed a contract just because I'm trying too see If there are any lower agents out there

@@helenk ,

 

Yea there photographers don't provide quality pictures so stay away. We took some from them when we went on vaca and let's just say that my Nikon took better pics.

 

I'm think I'm going to bring my own from florida

I'm using a travel agent/wedding coordinator through modern destination weddings. It's a free service, you only pay a $100 deposit, which goes towards your travel expenses. They help you coordinate with the resort, sort of like a middle man and are going to be helping with booking the travel at the lowest rates available for us and our guests and also with booking our honeymoon. The rates for flights aren't up yet so I don't have any quotes. When I was deciding on resorts I went onto Cheapcaribbean.com to get pricing ideas for that time of year and it had said about $950 pp for 3 nights (fri-mon) including flights from boston/NY (majority of our guests will be flying out from those cities).

@@jennifernoel1 We booked an outside photographer based in Jamaica. I read bad reviews on digipix and their prices were too pricey for what you get.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
