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

Recommended Posts

Beautiful wedding! Congratulations and thank you for sharing your FB link so we could all see your day :)

I LOVE your map card box... Are you looking to part ways with it or share how you made it?

Thank you!

 

I'm actually now using it as my wedding memory box and have all my favors, cards, guestbook, etc in it. I kept one of everything I gave to the guests.

 

I bought the treasure chest type box from Walmart for $15. I just printed a map of Mexico I found on google and cut to size and attached with double sided tape :) super easy!! I added the heart and 'mail' sign after.

Additional thought -- we didn't use any outside vendors but we had 2 guests that came to our wedding whom lived in Mexico.  It was cheaper to get them wedding passes than day passes.    The wedding pass included 2 hours before the ceremony up until the reception ended and it included their meal.   The day passes didn't include their meal and you could have 6am-2pm or 2pm-6pm which wouldn't really work!  We ended up paying these for our guests and this was included on our bill.

It looks like you guys had such a blast! I love it, I'm sure some of those pictures will make you laugh years down the road. 

 

I'm so glad you were able to let the little things side. I hope I can do the same, although I am known for being a control freak at times hahah

I'm also a control freak with very high standards, so I was fairly proud of myself

For letting go :). Maybe since there is so much else going on we kind of just do it naturally? He he. You'll do great.

What a fantastic time you had! A great review. Have been reading bits and pieces of it  since you came back and  enjoyed seeing it all in one shot with the details now! I have totally taken some of your advise now and added it to my notes, so thank you!! 

 

How terrible for your dad that he was injured! That is a fear I have, you would just be my luck! Happy he was okay though and still able to walk down the aisle! 

 

Your reception pictures look like so much fun! Gah! Love it!

Awesome review very helpful. It sounds like you got an amazing deal compared to some of us suckers lol it seems like you and Shawn had a dinner or two alone , would you recommend that? I'm worried I will feel guilty if I don't spend every night eating w a different group of people esp our last night
