So FI and groomsmen have voted for beach party now. I'm debating between Mannia and resort DJ which is only $250?? DJ Mania is $800 for 4 hours including lighting etc.

 

Thanks again Tracy for the info. How was your DJ?

Steph, how did you like the DJ? We initially thought the same thing about having the private restuarant, but I think we are leaning towards the beach if we can have a dance floor, which DJ Mannia does have.

 

Thanks again!

Hi ladies!

 

I just thought that I should give you girls a head's up if your plan is to have a legal ceremony next April or May (2011). Our wedding has been confirmed with the hotel and the judge for April 12, 2011 as of 2 weeks ago. However, my travel agent (who is also a wedding coordinator and is phenomenal) said that when she spoke to the judge two weeks ago, he commented on how he was almost completely booked for April and May next year already and he only opens his books 12 months ahead of time.

 

So unless you want to be married at 10 am or something, book soon!!! Hope that helps :)

Hi! Not sure how I missed this post! I really like the idea of parasols, my FI thinks it's kind of cheesy. How did they work out for you? They look so pretty and I love how your bridesmaid's look came together!!

Your so right just extra weight for the cake cutting server.. I'm surprised it's something I did get back!!
I didn't get candle holders back(but they were $$$$) nor some tea light candles with the batteries. That's about it, I brought the sand ceremony with me when I went to go get changed in my parents room.

LOL yah the jugde said his little speach after we were legal, then seriously ran off to the next ceremony that is when the SIL came up and did her speech that I wrote on cue cards for her.. I think I still have it if you want it/need it.

Ohh I want to see your cake!! What colour did you pick for the ribbon, if you even got ribbon...
here is mine...

I'm July 17! Are you feeling like I am and finally trying to get it all together? I've waited because I always felt like it was too early to really plan the actual wedding stuff, but now it's around the corner and I'm like shoot! Better plan as much as I can! lol. But not stressed, just excited. THANK GOD for this site though. Without you girls, I have no idea what would have happened! Although FI says(in a kind/fun way), without you girls, we would have saved a bundle and I wouldn't have a tone of DIY projects. lol.!!

Aww, that's great because the beach party was the time of my life ( and I use to be a party girl lol) My fav part was when we all got to hot we'd dunk our feet and legs in the ocean to cool off. How better can it get!
Yes our dj was $250, he was real good!! But If you want the dance floor you'll have to go with Mania, see if you can get a quoet for 3 hours instead of 4, since the beach party is good for 3 hours only.

I brought the seashell candle holders (which were meant for the guest table) but she had enough scattered around the table she threw this on the cake table, turned out perfect. You can bring a few things and let her know what you want on that table! I also brought the cake cutting server and cake topper.

Oh MY I was totally stressed!!!! But I also had last min guest coming, which then had to make up all of thier OOT bags, which is very time consuming.
LOL!!!!!!!!! Yah DH said the same, who could have so gone with out me doing half of the DIY. I counted the labels I made (12 of them for everything)
LOL!!!

Ok...first, I have a little problem because I've been sitting here all morning anxiously awaiting replys. lol. :) Thanks! Now I can start my morning. lol

 

I'm wondering if they will extend the party to 4 hours.

Where did you get those holders? I really like them!

I am doing 50 OOT bags...umm...it's getting a little out of hand. lol.

Sorry!! I'm a late sleeper lol!! I always wake up around 12! Until I start a new job (whenever that might be) lol

 

You could always ask, maybe they will charge you a little more to have the bar open for an extra hour, but if your willing to pay, I wouldn't see the problem.

How many holder's are you looking for?!

I got them at weddingstar.com 3 for $8.

Whoa! Sorry I've been MIA for a while, I've been a little sick.
The parasols were perfect, I wanted something different rather than flowers like EVERYBODY has, so I went with something that would keep the sun off them, but then when I got down there, I got them each a flower as well.

I thought they might get on the girls nerves but it was actually raining a little when they walked down the aisle, and when they got into the gazebo, they just put them down on the floor, they weren't annoying at all, like I thought they would be! lol

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
