@ashhtayy I used a combination of info from my WC, the website, BDR and the booklet you get when you check in (I kept the one we got in Sept at the BDR). 

 

A couple of corrections even from Sept to Jan

1) None of the restaurants need reservations 

2) La Brasserie is a buffet for breakfast but an la carte for dinner (if you like French food you HAVE to make sure you go. This was probably my favourite meal. Order the chocolate souffle in advance, they make it fresh and it takes time but so so worth it!!)

3) the only restaurant that has a buffet for dinner is Flavours

4) the outdoor seating over the koi pond outside of Koh Thai are an extra charge - only free for those with timeshares

5) This wasn't in my booklet but your personal concierge will ask if your guests want to listen to a timeshare. Most of my guests declined but a couple of them agreed to do it so that they could get one of the perks for listening. You could choose from a beachfront couples massage, a romantic dinner on the beach or one of other option that I can't remember. It might be worth it to some guests to put in the time. My maid of honour and her husband chose the couples massage and said it was the best massage she's ever had. Another friend paid for a couple's massage at the spa and paid a ton of money at full price...although he said it was totally worth it too. 

 

I'll let you know if I think of anything else.  :)

I heard from our videographer last week and our video should be done in the next week or so. He has our full video almost ready and is working on the highlight. I'm really excited to see it but also a bit nervous! 

 

Also I found out my wedding dress designer's store is closing this week. She's closing her retail store but continuing her custom dresses out of a private studio. I'm sad that I won't be able to just walk along Queen West and pop in to say hi to her. So I went in yesterday to say hi and give her a hug. You develop these relationships with all these people over the course of your engagement, all in preparation for such a big day in your life that it is said to say goodbye when the planning is all done. Speaking of which I've been emailing with my TA over the last couple of weeks. We're both sad we're not working together anymore. I told her I wish I was still planning a wedding so we could stay in contact more. 

 

I also started the name change process recently. So far I've tackled the health card...next up SIN. This will be a slow and steady process. 

 

I still have thank you cards to finish as well. 

 

How do I still have a to do list post wedding??? lol!

The name changes take time. I got the massive ones done but not some of the little 'who cares' ones. Sometimes when I call in I give the wrong name hehe.

Once you have your thank you cards done you should be good to go! They are daunting but I just sat down and got em done :)

Can't wait to see your video I'm sure it's fabulous

@snswedding2016 Ha ha I had to stop watching it cuz the tears were starting Steph! lol I'll have to wait until tonight or I'll be bawling here at my desk!!  Isn't Mike incredible???? He did an awesome job just the bit I watched. If he can get the tears going that quickly.... then it's perfect! I'll watch the rest either at lunch so that I can get the eyes cleared or watch the rest tonight. 


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Thanks Ladies!!! We love and and we can't wait to get the full video an relive the whole thing. It's making us really want to be in Mexico right now!!! @deecol @krystalball @vancouverpetunia @ashhtayy I'll have to live vicariously through you all! ;)

 

@perianjay The songs in the middle were not chosen by us actually. We picked the first and last song and the others have actually really grown on me. I was so happy that Mike decided to use part of our first dance song since it was sung by a very good friend of mine, it's really special to have that as part of our video!

 

Clocks...as in biological clocks?? lol Everyone's is ticking for us it seems...both speeches with a lot of kid talk. We love the parts of the speeches Mike chose to edit into the video.

 

We're so happy that in the end we decided to get a video!! I know now that I would have regretted not getting one. I'm really excited to share it with my mom who couldn't be with us in Mexico. :)
