Late To The Party Newbie!

Recommended Posts

Hello BDW Forum Folks!

 

I've been taking advice and reading reviews in stealth on here for months, as I prepare for my October 2014 wedding at the Hilton Los Cabos, and I felt it was time to give back to the community, and also become more active in asking questions.  I also want to be able to share my own experiences now and afterwards to pay it forward with all future brides who are struggling with the same questions I struggled with.

 

Beyond introducing myself, I'm also wondering what the most unexpected stressor or cause of frustration was for any destination brides out there.

 

One thing I've been concerned about is keeping in communication with everyone when we're all down there.  (I was thinking WhatsApp, but the resort charges a daily fee that I'm not sure everyone will be willing to pay, and thus will prevent us from being able to communicate with everyone effectively).  Maybe this will end up to be a problem, or maybe it will be a major issue.  Either way, would love to hear other experiences with this.

I'm a October bride as well, Punta Cana! Was just hoping word of mouth as a form of communication.

Welcome! 

 

I'm also interested in what others have to say about communication!  We're planning on including a schedule in the OOT bags, and will pass around room numbers at the rehearsal dinner.  I don't know the wifi situation, so I don't know if we'll be able to email/etc.  I know my phone will be off personally :)

We are putting contact numbers on our schedules that will be passed out in our OOT bags. The MOH and MOG will be anyones contact while at the resort. Other than that we aren't worried about it =0)

 

Good luck and congrats on your upcoming wedding!

Congratulations. I also am getting married this October 2014 in Jamaica. So far my unexpected stressor is the lack of RSVP cards sent back (although I have a round about of ppl attending).

I will be including our itinerary in each guest room with the wedding favor so that everyone knows what is going on (especially on the big day). Good Luck :)

Welcome to the forum, MissMarissa, and Congrats on your upcoming Los Cabos wedding in Oct !!! we've found that one of the easiest ways to communicate in Mexico is via skype. I hope you find all the answers you're looking for from the wide variety of resources here.....all the best with your plans - cheers!

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
