Sky deck brides (past or present)... Anyone have issues with knee length chiffon dresses and the wind?? I'm worried about short dresses for this reason. Anyone have experience from their weddings?

Sky deck brides (past or present)... Anyone have issues with knee length chiffon dresses and the wind?? I'm worried about short dresses for this reason. Anyone have experience from their weddings?

I only have experience with short dresses in Calgary weather . The flowier they are the more annoying and potentially revealing they are, the tighter the better. I guess you could always get a whole bunch of those veil weights and put on the dress (depending on the dress of course as they might look rather ugly), even then, the veils still move around a bit despite the weights so I'm not sure if that would be too much movement.

 

some of the short dresses have a bit more structure to their skirt, so even though they're sort of like a short a-line it doesn't feel like they'd be flying all over the place. I say on one of those days when we get those crazy wind storms put it on and go outside. It it withstands that I think you should be ok

Hello,

 

How many guests do you need to get a one free person?  

 

Also, how do you get a free cocktail party or private event?  Is it based on number of guests? If so, how many?

 

Thanks! 

 

I love seeing how organized everyone is so far in advance.

@sueann20 I think how many free people you get depends either on the company you're booking through or the hotel. I'm from Canada, going with Transat Air and we get every 11th person free. That's a really good deal, we got quoted at another hotel in Cancun and they wanted to give us every 20th person free. I've heard from others at other hotels that they get every 17th

 

The free cocktail hour is based on the amount of rooms booked under your group. 10-15 gets you a 2 hr cocktail hour, 16-20 gets your a 3 course dinner, 21 or more you get a cocktail our and 3 course dinner and over 50 you get free unlimited events :)

@@TinkerSofi Thanks!  I will ask my travel agent and wedding coordinator.

 

I have 36 (including the 2 of us) coming so far.  I was only told that I get one free person and no mention about a cocktail party.

Yeah I think your travel agent would know better. Go to the karisma website and click where it says specials. The free cocktail should be under weddings.

 

We are 32 right now. Only 1 away from our 3rd free person! Ugh! So I'm basically going to pressure someone to book with our group haha. That third person is the only way my best friend can join us from Argentina

I will, thanks.

 

Does the free person include hotel and airfare?  

 

I have about 10 kids coming so I wonder if they don't count in the total guest count.

In my instance this is for a package (air, hotel transfers) through a tour operator (sunwing in my case) free person is a credit for the amount of the lowest purchased room level before taxes. It counts adults only, kids do not count toward your "purchase x, get one free".

 

These are often negotiated as an incentive from your TA and your operator. Even if travelling to the same hotel or using the same tour operator, your TA may negotiate her own incentives.

 

This will all be detailed in your contract and should understand all the small print before signing because it can likely not be amended once contract is signed.

Bad news ladies. I wanted to have some string lights going across the top of the terrace but unfortunately they don't do that up there for all those who were thinking of it as well. Apparently they don't have the structure to hang them up

Does anyone know if we can use the free 3 course dinner for the reception? I'm considering that possibility vs. using it for a rehearsal dinner. What options do they give you? I'm sure there are restrictions, given that it's free and all.

    • 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.
