Hello AF brides!

I have officially booked my wedding at AF for October 2016 and I cannot wait!

I have read the entire forum so majority of my questions were answered.....thank you all for your input!

I have sent a request to the Facebook page but have received no reply in response. Can someone please help in getting me accepted?! My fb name is Steph Garcia

Thank you and happy planning to all :)

How did you end up getting accepted to the group, I've been waiting for over a week!

I am going to put this post in both the 2015 and 2016 forum to try and get the most feedback possible.

 

Right now we have 10 in our group that are booked for 4-nights land only, the rest are 7-night land and flight. We've had other people come forward requesting land only rates and two months later, no rates have been received. Our travel agent says that is because Karisma has seen a surge of Americans booking the land only rates in CAD $ therefore the rate on their site is super high to deter this from happening. Apparently they are being very strict on the number of land only rooms that are being allocated to CDN tour operators.

 

Has anyone else ran into this? Seems crazy to me that a resort would rather no business at all over a 4-night stay.

 

Obviously this is a huge deterrent for our guests. 1. Who would want to wait over 2 months for rates? 2. The price our agent sent from the site is astronomical (double actually).

@@ashhtayy that does seem really odd!! I don't have too much experience with this. We did have several of our guests book land only but right from the beginning. We did hold 6 rooms at the land only quote when we put down our deposit so we never actually needed more. Do you have any rooms that you held with the flight that you could convert to land only? The only problem is that I think it has to be the same duration so if your package with the flight is for 7 nights the land only would have to be for 7 nights as well, otherwise you do have to go back to Transat for another quote. Is your TA having any trouble getting answers from Transat at all? Our TA was amazing but I do have a lot of complaints about our Transat rep.

Thank you "Moment that Matter" for the beautiful photos!

 

I'm still considering live music/DJ options, does anyone have suggestions? Also has anyone seen the new beach gazebo wedding site area? From the photos it looks really nice, but I still think we are going to go with the sky deck

Hey Brides-to-Be!

 

I am selling my brand new Rosa Clara wedding gown, it's gorgeous, still has the tags and extra beads (size 8). I purchased 2 dresses and decided to go with the second one. If anyone is interested I have photos and more details to share :)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
