OMG Tarantulas!!!  Where is building 7??  My biggest fear ever is spiders.  

Mel- When are you getting married?

 

My WC is Gara and she never sent me anything.  Can someone send me the flowers and another decoration information?

Wen, if you go on the DPC fb page, a lot of people were posting about it!! I know, it grosses me out too!smile41.gifApparently they can be seen all over the island, but I guess the habitat around building 7 is more to their liking. Someone said a big one and a baby were right outside their room- just the thought of it really creeps me out. You better believe I am requesting my guests and I not be placed there!

I'm getting married in two weeks and I am wondering who "runs" the reception?  Meaning, who keeps the reception flowing, announces the cake, etc??  Does the wedding coordinator do this?  Can someone who has had a reception tell me?? Please??

Ewww I do not like any kind of any creepy crawlies something to look forward to huh woot.gif

 

Wen- I get married September 27th so right in Hurricane season but it's all good.  It is the date that we wanted just hope the weather turns out good for us :).

 

And Yessica is my WC.  I sent an email a few months ago and heard nothing so I emailed again last week and Gara responded within a few hours.  Then Yessice responded within a few hours, so I was very pleased.  I even sent a few emails during the day and she responded to all of them.  I wanted to make sure I had my reception location booked :)

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!!

 

FYI - We went to hobbie lobby and hit the jack pot for center pieces for the tables.  I was super excited, even found my ceremony sand there woot.gif.

Hi!  I am booked for a July 2012 wedding at Dreams!  Can anyone let me know if it would be better to get married here in the states before and have a symbolic ceremony at Dreams.  Has anyone done the symbolic ceremony and if so what is it like?  We will be having our ceremony at the gazebo, but are worried if too many people decide to come, we won't be able to have it there.  Is there a limit on the number of people to have at the gazebo?  We also booked the himitsu terrace for the reception since thats the only place besides the beach that can hold up to 100 people.  Want to be able to wear heels too, which is why I'm trying to stay away from having the ceremony and reception on beach.  Any info would be great!  Thanks!!!

Here is what they sent me for flowers, they can do whatever you want, so if you have a bouquet in mind, just send them the picture and they will quote you.

That's awesome you found your sand Mel! Way to go! cheers.gif

I agree- I am so not looking forward to the creepy crawlies!

 

Ska- those bouquet pics are totally different from the ones Carolina sent me! I asked if I could send a pic of bouquets I like instead of choosing from the samples and she never answered me (no surprise there). Good to know that there is that option!

Did you have a choice as far as what color you wanted the flower petals to be? It seems like a lot of people had red, but I really want white. I have no problem bringing my own if I need to, especially if they don't put out too much. Carolina also sent me bouquet pics- it was like 2 pages worth of samples. Is that really the whole selection you have to choose from? Someone earlier on here mentioned there was a book they went through to make their flower selections. How were their centerpiece choices? (thanks for all of your input by the way!pinkie.gif)

 

Ska- I am so excited for you!!!! You will have to let us know how the weather is while you are there- I am getting married Nov 2012 and I based that decision on hurricaine season being over as well. :) Plus everyone will be dying for warm weather as it gets colder around here!

 

You might be able to choose the colours for the flower petals, but I didn't really ask. It was a mixture of white and pinks - and to be honest with so many other things to worry about I figured this was the least of my worries.

 

As for the bouquet options, I think I had the same 2 page Word document from my wedding coordinator, but when we got there they had a book with tons more options.

As for the centrepieces, we decided to maximize things and just reused the floral decorations for the gazebo as our centrepieces. There were like 6 or 7 floral arrangements and we only needed 5 for our centrepieces. I only found out about this when I got there, as we had planned to make our own centrepieces, using sand, seashells and glass beads; thank goodness another bride that was waiting to speak to her WC told us about this option. Again, one more thing we could cross off our list!

AlyssaZ - We are getting married in the states before we leave.  It was a lot cheaper and plus we wanted to enjoy our vacation and not have to run around and deal with legal stuff.  So we will be having the symbolic ceremony and one of my FH's best friends will be marrying us woot.gif

    • 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.
