    Any Russian brides?

I am considering the royal for my wedding and I am not sure how to do the timeline.... can any of you girls share with me yours? thanks, marianna Privetik Marianna. Carlos mixed the songs him self. I kinda highlighted the ones i wanted him to play first so he did. He also thru a lot of non-russian songs in the mix since out of 60 people about 40% were americans. We had a blast. You know how crazy russians could get when there is a lot of booz and great music!!! The ceremony wasn't long. About 20 minutes tops. So we were able to start taking pictures right after that.

    First Dance - Whats your song??

    Ours was "Could I Have This Kiss Forever" -Whitney Houston and Enrique Iglesias.
  3. Hey Erica. I'll try to answer all your questions and if i'll miss anything let me know! Here we go: Did you tell them where to set it up? or did they just set up there? Oh no, I told them exactly where want my reception to be. They let you choose between the ceremony locations.. But the reception I told them I wanted by the pools. Nobody has done it before me so they were a little confused at first.. thought about it for a day and then gave me a OK… Who married you? Did you have a religious ceremony or just a civil? A had a civil ceremony so I don’t even that that guy who married us was. They said it was a minister but I doubt it. He spoke good English and nobody even knew that it wasn’t legal. How was the food?? What did the wedding reception food include? What did you not like?? Anything? The food was great, well, I didn’t really get a chance to try it since I spent all the time on the dance floor.. Guests loved it though! Here what I had and it was included in Ocean Scents package Yellow fin tuna carpaccio Cream of asparagus sauce Guava sherbet with Mezcal Surf & Turf (Beef tenderloin with lobster tail) Luke warm half baked dark chocolate fondant Coffee, petit fours.. But i have to tell you about the cake!!!! It was out of this world. It wasn’t fancy looking; no extra thought was put into decorating it. Simple 2 tier cake with a big flower on top to match the rest of the flowers in your wedding. But that was the most delicious cake I have ever eaten in my life! You get to choose the flavor between strawberry, vanilla, coconut, chocolate and something else I don’t remember. I chose coconut!!!!!! It was something else!!!! Also anything that you wish you did different? No.. Not a thing!!! Everything was great.. (Well, I would have picked a different dress cause I hated mine, but that’s irrelevant..) Anything that you would recommend doing? Bring pictures.. Lots of them! Whatever you want to see at your wedding… They need to see it! You can’t just tell them that you want certain things… well I guess you can, but there is no guarantee you’ll get it. I brought pictures of everything. Like gazebo for example. They only have 3 types of gazebos to chose from. And they have never done anything like I wanted. So I showed them the picture, my WC faxed it somewhere and I got exactly what I wanted. How was the heat? I see you got married in May... I'm getting married in July and am terrified of the heat!!! It was hot, no doubt about it. But a see breeze made it a lot better. I don’t know if you bought a dress yet, but go with something light. Also.... how do you go upon the flowers?? Does the Barceló take care of it for you?? Yes, they have a huge folder with pictures. I didn’t find anything I liked in there so I told them what I wanted. They exceeded my expections. When I saw them for the first time I screamed. They looked so beautiful. But I did pay extra for orchids. They’re very expensive there. If you like my flowers print the picture out and show it to them! Hope this hepls Let me know if you have any more questions

I used to mute the TV every time I knew it was coming!!!! I don't know why I’m so annoyed by her but I am. I wish it was somebody else hosting the show. It would've been a lot more enjoyable for me watch!

    Cold fireworks are different from the fireworks that explode up in the sky. There are 4 explosions that go off at the same time straight up in the air and burn for a few seconds.

(I twisted his arm enough to have an hour of offsite photos done with Erik Rodrigues, but our ceremony and family shots were done by the resort photogs). Words of wisdom!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT SKIMP ON YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUDGET. I couldn’t have said it better my self!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Flat shoe help..

    These are my wedding shoes: They are not cheap but i love them. I'm probably going to try to sell them on e-bay though. I don't know if I’m going to have a chance to wear them ever again.
