Veryvalero's Wedding Planning Thread - Grand Sunset Princess

Recommended Posts

Ohhh, i get it!  @@calgarybride2015  it's a hidden gem hotel.  It's huge but very affordable yet considered 5 star.  The only complaint that i hear about it is that it's a lot of walking but thankfully for me, I'm open to the cardio!  hahaha

 

We've been to the hotel twice and they just recently opened an adults only addition to the hotel next door.  Exciting!

Hello ladies!  I've been pretty busy trying to cross things off my endless to do list.  On Tuesday it marked my two months til the wedding !! eeeeeeeeeee!!

 

I'm trying to finalize our table number design and the FI and I have seen eye to eye on basically everything but the table numbers is like the most impossible thing for him to agree with me.

 

I've sent him soo many different options and every single one is like picked apart.  It's literally cracking me up.  I wanted to do something a little more creative than just having a frame with a number inside...and he's just like saying no to it all.  

I am trying to include him because lately with everything else I was making decisions on my own...whoops...but this is hilarious and too much.

I love the glitter one and wished I would have thought of it :) my friend did something similar but they weren't glittery. 2 is pretty as well. I did the basic numbers in glitter on one side and a picture of us on the other side :) funny how he even cares lol. This seems like something men would run from!!!

Your fiance sounds JUST LIKE MINE! Haha.

 

I LOVE the glittery table number! I would totally steal this, but my fiance wants to NAME our tables instead of numbering them. I wonder if I could still figure out how to do the same idea with a word.

 

Love the confetti, too!

I love the glitter one! How can he say no? haha. I love it because we have a lot of the same issues, and not just with the wedding but also in deciding what kind of furniture we want for the house. He becomes so picky that sometimes I don't even tell him when I make decisions, whoops as well (although they're usually pretty simple decisions like a sign here or a flower there). Or I just give him two choices and he has to pick one haha. 

 

How about he comes up with his own idea? I find Juan loves to pick my ideas apart but when you ask him he has none of his own haha. Not so easy then I guess :P

@@veryvalentine in LOVE with option one - gold and glittery. I don't want a "colour scheme" persay but am definitely going with gold accents. SO PRETTY!

I'm going for the gold!!!  I took your advice @@TinkerSofi and left it up to him to come up with a decision.

 

He found these gold type hand written stands that were almost $200 and he kept picking things that would require hiring a printer or ordering from Australia so I kept saying like this seems like a lot of work for table numbers.

 

In the end he agreed that he liked the glitter ones, he just doesn't want to be involved in the making of them.  That's fine!

Our Wedding Coordinator:

 

We started our planning with Guillermo at the Princess but about two months ago or so he changed jobs.  So we have recently started planning with a different planner.  Initially the back and forth was really slow.  Like, I understand the process required patience but sometimes the emails would come in like 3 weeks later.

 

Recently our communication has been excellent and she's been on top of everything.  I'm two months out and I feel very confident in her.  I think that given how much time and effort we're putting into this wedding, the wedding coordinator at the hotel is probably one the most important contacts we have.  I decided to put together a small gift bag to gift her when we meet at our first planning meeting when we arrive at the hotel.  

 

She is apparently a big chocolate fan so we're gonna definitely buy her some Lindt chocolate and I'm thinking the outlet is the place to go!!   :)  I've also made her a pretty necklace and i'm going to bring her some bath and body works.  I'm trying to avoid "canadian" souvenirs as I find them a bit cheesy.  Anyway, I'm thinking a happy wedding coordinator = a happy bride!   :)

 

She's also offered to purchase a pinata for us in playa del carmen if we didn't want to go and get it ourselves.  So nice. :)

The FI just designed the logo that we are going to place on our welcome bags!  It includes our hashtag but doesn't have our names so it can still be used even after the wedding if they wanted to.

    • 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?
