It also looks like there is a charge for Power (WTF!?)
So, fly down the morning of the 9th - PLENTY of time!!!! Okay, wishful thinking, but I would love to have you!!!

Carlos tells me that he needs 20 Amps, so only $50. But yes, the fees do add up. I've sent a note to Elisa asking her to confirm that the Paradisus does not charge anything in addition to the $65 per hour. We'll see what she says, but even then... it's still $300 cheaper than Swank. AND, Mannia's price includes the lights - for which Swank wants to charge Kim $600. Total savings is over $900!

I wonder if the insurance is a one time thing (i.e., would he have to get it each time he did a wedding at the Paradisus!?) I would way rather go with him - especially if the $300 is waved given that we would be paying $65 per hour to Swank... Keep us posted and I will keep working on FI for the 9th!

Hi Girls! And Welcome, Steph! I am new, too... this is probably THE GREATEST thing I have found! I love it... although I kinda get freaked out thinking about everything I still need to do and my wedding is in less than three months!!!

 

I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the past few days... I have been working on our DARLING wedding invitiations... I will send pics once I have them all done... It has been really hard work, but I think we have saved a couple of thousands of dollars! Happy Saturday to everyone!! I am off to finish them... oh, and btw, thanks so much for all of the vendor/ DJ info! I am going to see about booking Carlos! Thanks so much Missy and Becks!!

 

:)

Kim

Nothing from Elisa or Swank telling me what using Mannia is going to cost. So, will call later today.

 

On another note, has anyone inquired about shipping things down for OOT bags, etc?

I asked Perla about shipping things down early and she informed me that they will NOT accept packages before you arrive. The best thing to do is to ship them to yourself at the resort so that the timing will make them arrive at the resort once you are there. Perla wasn't responding to my emails either (and she is usually good about getting back to me) so I called her and she apologized and told me she has been swamped with weddings.

 

FYI: I am booked for a site visit and meeting with Perla May 30-June1st so if anyone needs anything or questions answered while I am there I will happy to help!

 

P.S. Thanks so much for all the info on the DJ. I have been so uneasy about Swank but thought there was no way around using them. I am definitely going to look more into Mannia while I am down there in May.

Hopefully they will be better at responding - Perla has been really really slow lately - I would much prefer to use Mannia for DJ - keep me posted on the costs front - I am interested to hear whether they are going to charge the $300 fee in addition to the per hour rate...

    • 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.
