I have a picture of the beach bar I got from my wedding coordinator. How do I post a picture on here?? Let me know if it doesn't show.

 

Is anyone working with Destination Weddings? I am, and my coordinator has been fabulous!!

Okay try this.

I like that! No, I didn't work with destination weddings but kind of wish I did- I feel like you got more inside information! I just went off of the packages through Iberostar and booked on my own but probably would have bee able to tailor it more had I used an agent!

@@DLS2016 So I spoke with the hotel and they told me that I would have to pay a penalty of $300usd plus $63 for a day pass to have someone come in a do my makeup.

I'm trying and hoping there is a way around this. Did you speak with the wedding coordinator or is there someone you can direct me towards that will help with this? It seems ridiculous that I'm being charged a penalty.

 

It seems like they are charging extra for every little thing. I was told $12 per fresh flower on the cake.

@@Harper370 it's not too late to work with DTW. You only pay a $50 fee and it's well worth it in my book. Honestly, if you are getting prices like $12 for fresh flowers I would consider it. Are you buying a wedding package?? If you aren't that's the only reason I can think of that they would charge for flowers on the cake.

 

I didn't speak with the wedding coordinator at the resort, I went through my destination wedding coordinator Lisa Johnson. Seriously, I promise you half the stress is taken out of the planning when you have someone helping you. I don't know where I would be without Lisa. She is awesome!

 

Yuctant hair did mention that they would be willing to tell guest services they are at the resort as your guest so you only pay the $65 fee. Maybe they would be willing to do your hair at their house?

 

Did you tell the resort you want airbrush makeup? If they have it by December then I would imagine there is no way around the fee

@@DLS2016 could you give me contact information for Lisa Johnson if she is only a $50 fee then I much rather pay her then deal with all this back and forth.

 

I did tell the coordinator at the resort but she only said they offer bridal make up.

 

Also I spoke with Michael from yucatan hair and he mentioned they would just get passes and add it to the total.

 

No we didn't go with a traditional wedding package. We requested dinner on the beach which is part of their romantic dinner package. What kind of wedding cake selections are they giving you?

This is Lisa's email address. She is will probably refer you to the main DW website to fill out the form and you can always request her as your agent. She is awesome. She arranged my wedding day in 4 hours no joke.

 

We are going with their standard options for the wedding cake which includes the flowers. in all honesty I haven't gotten that far yet. They gave me a spreadsheet with all the options for the day of and the prices that go along with them.

@@beachbeth Absolutely! I'll keep you posted as I get to make more plans. I think I've done everything I can until the 3 month mark which is when Iberostar's wedding coordinator said we'd be in more frequent contact.

 

You'll be fine with 40 people for the private reception. The reception costs $990 USD to rent out an entire restaurant for 4 hours. Not too bad as it'll still be far cheaper than a wedding where I live! The DJ is $636 USD (with taxes included) for the entire 4 hours and the dance floor will just be the restaurant floor (which I think is perfectly fine! You can upgrade to adding a fancy dance floor but that just seemed like too much extra money).  I know it was confusing to sort out the cost of everything for me so I figured I'd share! Hope that helps!!

@@beachbeth and @Icole1 I will also keep in touch as planning progresses. I will also let you know how things go after I get back! There is a vendor I found online that does rental decorations I believe the name of the company is called Love and Lacy. She brings all the decor you want to the resort in a suitcase so you don't have to pay the outside vendor fee which saves some $$.

Yes the vendor fees are quite outrageous! I had to cancel Beso brides because of that.

 

Is anyone using the resort photographer? I'm trying to decide if the getting ready session is worth the extra money. They charge a pretty hefty fee also.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
