Calgarybride2015's Planning Thread 15/1/21 Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

I love everything!! You did such a good job, and everything looks great together! Looking those plastic frames at michaels is now on my todo list!

They had about 5 colors :)

They used to be in the cheap bins but last time I found them in the frames section if you can't find them!

@@calgarybride2015 I am beyond appreciative of how helpful everyone is on these boards! So quick to share information. I can't wait until I have more stuff organized and together so I can start sharing my stuff too :)

Kim! I was finally able to read the rest of your thread! 

 

I'm kicking myself for not checking Walmart earlier for a lot of the OOT stuff! I never thought they'd carry the individual packets.  I checked Target but no luck. I also love that treasure chest thing you got and am going to have to do a Walmart trip soon to see what I can find.

 

We have 2 of the same songs :).  Our exit is also On Top Of The World by Imagine Dragons and our first dance is also All of Me by John Legend! Good taste ;) ! Also considering the Piano Guys 1000 years but still considering!

 

I think I said it before but I really love the gifts for your kids, esp that bracelet. Chloe is my future daughter's name too :)

 

I'm so bad but I'm totally going to sell you on the chinese lanterns w/ that palapa roof! This is the image that I fell in LOVE with and I searched hard for a palapa to get the same effect.  Clearly I was unsuccessful (our reception is completely open!) but I still love this image. And if your resort will hang them for you, you can get them online for way cheaper than your resort's price.  We don't have the option and I'm not even going to tell you how much we're paying for 4 strings of 10 lanterns haha but I had to have them :)

Thank you!

Are the lanterns lighted or are they more a decoration? I like the look but wondered what most people did as I assume as a decoration (no light) would be much cheaper. Our resort will do basic decor for free but when it starts getting heavy in items they charge a hostess fee which I think was only $50. I actually told Shawn about your original post and me being like 'man more ideas' lol but he likes them too :)

Do a search here on "DIY throwies". A lot of the brides buy the cheaper non lit lanterns and then make these to light them. Is have done it if we had a palapa to hang them from but ours is open so we need someone to string from from end to end

Steal away!

That's what we post these for - well I think so anyways!  I have went thru most, if not all, of the planning threads on here :)

My cake topper came today!

Fastest shipping from the States, ever!

 

I LOVE it!!   Honestly, I may have liked it a bit bigger for it to make more of a statement but super happy with it :) (Etsy - Chicagofactory)

Oh your cake topper looks great!  Glad you went with that one :). I wish mine had sparkles too. Mine is a lot smaller than I expected too haha.  I should have read the listing more carefully

I agree!  but I went back and looked at all the ones I had considered and they were all the same size.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
