Hi Ladies

 

I got married last week (March 27th) and it was fantastic!  My WC was Carolina and she took care of everything.  There is no need to worry because she is really good at was she does!  We had our ceremony on the beach and cocktail/reception at the Himitsu.  All 46 of us had so much fun.

Please feel free to ask me anything!  I was so stressed before going but everything was great!  :)

Congrats Melly81!! I have a few questions for you! For the beach ceremony, did you get the Huppah decorated or just the linens? Was the beach windy? What time was your ceremony? Did you get your hair/makeup done there? If so, what time were your appointments? What dinner package did you go with? How was the food? That's all I have for now! Thanks! Jackie

Hi Jackie! For the beach ceremony, the Huppah was decorated in white linens. I couldn't justify paying hundreds of dollars to have it decorated. It was simple and elegant. I had brought my own purple chair sashes and purple flower petals for the aisle and it looked amazing. We got married at 5pm and it was a bit windy but nothing crazy... I had my hair and makeup done at the salon and I can't recommend them enough. My hair looked amazing! She even put in my extensions and did everything I asked for. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup! Since we were having pictures done before the ceremony (2pm) my appointment was at 11:30am and I had just enough time without feeling rushed. We chose the silver dinner package and the food was really good. No complaints. Our wedding cake was vanilla flavored and tasted really good! Melanie :)

Congrats Melly!!!!

 

Thank you for answering all of the questions Jackie asked! (she asked everything i was going to lol) I was wondering, how much were they charging to have the huppah decorated? I'm thinking about doing the same thing because my FI doesn't like the plain linens. Also did you have a DJ?

Hi Deemore! It says in the wedding guide that to have the huppah decorated it's like $500...to me it's really not worth it. The ceremony last 10 mins! We did a sand ceremony that added an extra 3 mins. :) I didn't have a DJ. I had an iPod with all my music divided into different playlists. My friend was our MC and was in charge of the music. Worked out great!

Thanks Melanie for all the info! It sounds like our days are going to be very similar! What dinner items did you choose? Did you wait till you got there to tell the WC all your arrangements (decorations, bouquet, dinner choice)?  Also, what kind of extentions did you get? I thought about getting some but didnt want to spend too much money for them.

 

Deemore, Im also going to do a sand ceremony. It took me forever to find a vase I really liked. My FI has two children so we are also going to have them be a part of it. While searching for a vase I did come across sand ceremony picture frames too that were really cute.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
