Secrets Resorts & Spas

 semrc_signature

When Chad and I got married, we took our honeymoon over in Europe, completely avoiding all beaches and instead choosing to tour cities.  But after seeing the resorts available from  Secrets Resorts & Spas, I’m starting to think we may have missed out!  The Secrets Maroma Riviera Cancun is insanely stunning, with tons of activities for both the ladies AND the gentlemen.  Situated on the Yucatan Peninsula with a beach recognized as one of the world’s best, you can lay out and relax or take part in activities like tennis, beach volleyball, yoga, sailing, and take advantage of complimentary green fees at the nearby golf course (just to name a few!).   If taking it easy is more your style, you can indulge in some spa treatments at their 13,000 sqft spa, or enjoy a meal in one of their 7 restaurants or 6 bar lounges.  An important thing I always pay attention to is connectivity….as much as I want to relax and enjoy myself, I still like staying somewhat connected, so the free WiFi is a huge plus.  All the honeymoon suites have full ocean views along with 75% of the other suites, and the ones that don’t have direct swim access to one of their 13 pools.  Meaning you can wake up, get out of bed, and walk straight into a pool from your room (in a swimsuit of course)!  How great is that??  Top that off with 24 hour room service, unlimited drinks, pool & beach wait service and more, you’ve got yourself a pretty sweet honeymoon setup.  Check out this particular Secrets Resort along with all the other in the AM Resorts portfolio for even more honeymoon options!

Minted foil press invitations

I’m constantly impressed by what Minted manages to come up with season after season, and their new foil stamped wedding invitations and save the dates are no exception.  Foil really adds the perfect touch of glamour and instantly elevates any design.  They’ve got over 50 designs for save the dates and invitations available, with options in both gold and silver foil, and I love that with some designs, you can customize which foil color you can get!

Minted is kindly offering Brooklyn Bride readers 15% off ALL Minted wedding stationery with code BKLYN15, so be sure to take advantage of that!

Customizable Wedding Websites from WeddingWoo

weddingwoo-brooklyn-1 weddingwoo-brooklyn-2

With all the wedding websites that are out there, it might be a little hard to decide, but WeddingWoo is one that should definitely be in the running.  They have delightfully non-cheezy templates (thankfully!) that are highly customizable, so for those of you that are not as graphic savvy on the computer like me, you can easily change layouts, fonts and colors.  You’re not just stuck with cookie cutter themes.  They’ve also integrated Instagram in so when you assign a hashtag to your wedding, all the photos with it can be instantly displayed onto your website!  Wouldn’t it be great to have all those photos from your guests in one place??

There are also fun widgets you can add to your site that can countdown to your big day, or even play music uninterrupted.  Their online RSVP firm is fully customizable and makes it easy to receive and track your guests responses with email notifications. Not to mention all their other features like the photo gallery page, registry page, guestbook, custom pages, password protection and more!  If you want to add your own custom URL, thats easy too!  And its all for a flat fee for either 1 or 2 years…no upcharges, no secret fees, no nothing.

Check out some examples of websites other couples have made, and while you’re there, check out all the other things WeddingWoo has to offer!

Apple Vacations featuring Dreams Los Cabos

apple vacations

Apple Vacations is a new to me company that is truly a one-stop shop for planning the destination wedding of your dreams.  Their collection of properties has some of the most romantic hotels for weddings throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America, plus affordable weddings on beautiful beach settings throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

  Amazingly enough, they will take care of your travel arrangements, and will put you in touch with an experienced wedding planner to coordinate the day of your dreams, so your wedding can be as stress free as possible (hard when tackling a wedding, I know!)

  With their Group-Ease program, you can enjoy great promo-code discounts for groups as small as ten guests, so when you book 10 or more rooms, you’ll get airfare credits on exclusive vacation flights and a free hotel stay.

  From travel arrangements and legal requirements, to great ways to save and even a bridal registry, they take care of it all!

The Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa is one of their incredibly beautiful properties, nestled on the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.  Every room there is a spacious suite with private terrace or balcony overlooking the water (sigh!)  For even MORE luxury, you can join the Preferred Club where you’ll receive special concierge service and preferred status and amenities.  There are plenty of day and evening activities, full service spa, multiple swimming pools, gourmet restaurants & lounges, and so much more.  For events, there are a ton of packages to choose from for weddings, anniversaries, vow renewals, honeymoons, etc, but what’s exciting about the Dream Wedding in Paradise package in particular is that with a 7 night stay, it’s all complimentary!  Any package can be added onto for further customization, so even though it’s a package, you can make it your own.
Whether it’s a wedding, honeymoon or anniversary, why not pamper yourself and your guests?  I myself have never been to a beach destination wedding, but they sure make it sound good!

Magbooth

arielle
It’s pretty amazing how far the photobooth industry has come, from those clunkers at the back of seedy bars, to the fully customizable party machines of today!  When it comes to weddings, they’re almost expected at this point, and one company you should definitely be checking out (if you’re in the market) is Magbooth.  Conceived a mere 7 years ago, they’ve provided booths for thousands of events, from corporate to personal, all over the country.  Each rental comes with props, unlimited photo prints, custom designed logo strip, online gallery, and a trusty booth attendant.  Better yet, for wedding rentals, you walk away with a coffee table style book of images!  What couple wouldn’t want that??
If you want to learn more about their rentals, or to just check out some more images from past events, head over to their rental page.  And keep your eye out for their newly released GIF booth…its currently on tour with Arcade Fire, no biggie.
