So to have a private three course dinner it works out about $30 a head on average which includes the location fee and the set-up and a 3 hour open bar. So I've worked out based on 25 adults and 2 children that the total cost for a private reception (not including the music equipment) is £564 based on an exchange rate of 1.4.

 

I've got a lot of information from the hotel, they sent me all of their pricelists if you want me to email them over let me know. xx

o really I read on here i think that it was 65 dollors per head. yeah could you please email any info you have? my email is laureenwarren1@yahoo.co.uk. Thanks for your help. Are you planning on bringing any decor with you?

I'm sure what I've worked out is right, I've confirmed it with the hotel as well. You do have to pay an additional $20 for anymore over the 20 people at your wedding. So I've worked out for anyone extra who comes its about $65 dollars a head so about £40. Maybe that's what they meant. I'll email it over to you in a bit. Yeah I think I am going to bring my own centrepieces for the table and maybe a few other bits like coloured napkins etc. I think I've chosen my colour theme now, I need some inspiration. What about you??

I'll send that stuff over when I get a wi-fi connection, as I haven't got much data and the attachments are quite hefty all together. A bouquet is included within the package I have gone for, I thought it was included in the free one as well. I've got one bridesmaid bouquet so I'm going to have to purchase another one to make sure they all match. I was thinking of doing welcome bags too, would be great to know what ideas you have to put in them. Its so hard when you've got to carry it all out, we're thinking of buying our wedding favours out there to make it cheaper and so we haven't got to carry it all. My other half wants a light blue suit, which limited my bridesmaid colours, so I think I'm going for light blue, dusty pink and grey. I am on facebook, I joined one group, which groups are you part of? x

Yeah no problem just whenever suits. Yeah but I wanted to bring my own as it will be something i can keep. I will give mine to a bridesmaid then buy additional 2. I know I am panicking about travelling with everything, I have a couple of ideas like the tumbler plastic cups for drinks, you can get some nice ones. Then just bits and bobs like lip protector, paracetamol, mints, mosquito spray etc I wanted to get kids something nice but unsure what. Those colours will be beautiful together. We have not decided about what the men are wearing yet, we had though sandy coloured shorts and white shirt due to heat but now he is not sure what to wear xx

Totally just a thought for bringing  additional items. I saw a post saying to buy additional suitcases from a thrift store and leave them in Mexico when you leave, since you won't need as many things! Alternatively, put it amongst everyone's suitcases before you leave :)

Hi Girls,

I mistakenly posted on the older thread about my recent trip there for the bridal promotion.

It was a long post

Anyways, I can't believe its taking so long for some of you to get date confirmation. I just switched my date and locations due to the fact that we don't think the chapel is large enough to accommodate our wedding. They say max is 60, with chairs added, but we think it's more like 40 comfortably. Also the cocktail hour area for the chapel, an area that has hammocks, is not shaded at all. It was so hot just going on the tour! Just something to keep in mind. So we decided to switch the ceremony to the sky terrace. It was gorgeous and private. We are willing to pay the 1k fee.

As soon as I got back I emailed my wedding coordinator to switch locations and she emailed me back the same day. I was informed that the sky terrace was already booked that Saturday so she suggested Sunday. I switched it to Sunday. I did this within two days, had to confirm with vendors.

While there I was told they had an average of 4 weddings per day so that may be a reason it's taking a long time to confirm. They're super busy!

Btw, the resort is gorgeous! We are so lucky!

Found a new DelSol Royalton wedding

Also, here is a snap shot of the spa/salon prices. They're expensive! The spa is beautiful though. I was told every massage comes with a free hydrotherapy session. We received a free hydrotherapy session and it was amazing!post-286128-0-92511200-1463840356_thumb.jpg

Have you booked through Thomson/first choice aswell?

 

I can't believe they have 4 weddings a day, that seems like way too many to ensure there is a personal touch. I'm dreading that I'm not going to get the location I want or the date.

 

When are you getting married?

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
