Thank Rebecca
That was really helpful. I think the one thing I'm most worried about is how the day will flow. Its just hard to imagine.

I have a number of different wedding day timelines I could attach; this one is ridiculously detailed, but if you want an idea of how a full day flowed, this is it. I don't do them in Excel b/c I find that it's almost more confusing that way. (And for those wondering, no, the bridemaids and groomsmen don't have a timeline as detailed as this! I just basically write out where they need to be, and when.)

 

For future reference, if anyone needs help with their timeline, I'd be glad to help! (Maybe I'll start a timeline thread...)

 

Disclaimer: I changed and deleted some of the names in the Timeline, to protect the bride and groom.

Your welcome. I struggled with the same thing...so I am glad to help. Just remember, it always works out. But remember to tell everyone where they need to be in regards to photos, etc. It was sort of chaotic after the ceremony, bcz I forgot to tell the family & bridal part what was up after. So we spent a lot of time gathering everyone up for photos.

Rebecca how long does the reception portion last at the Dreams? And what is the cocktail hour like? Do they serve very little stuff? Or do you get a variety of things?

Hey Glenda, the reception can last as long as you want it to. I think the latest it can go is 11:00. At first I was going to end mine at 10:00 and then get everyone to go into town to party it up. But I ended up changing my mind and I's so glad I did. Why make everyone pay for drinks when they're free? We had soo much fun and im so glad we extended it for the extra hour. We all continued the party in the lobby bar until 2:00 AM.

 

Regarding cocktail hour, Mariana blocked off part of the El Patio restaurant. There was a bar set up and the trio gutarists continued to play at the cocktail hour while we took photos. The cost was included in the ceremony set up, so no additional charge! Mariana sent me an appetizer list & I picked 4 hot and 4 cold apps. They were all pretty good except these little mini suasages. They sounded good in my mind, but when we saw them, they looked like a regular sized hot dogs, cut into little pieces with this gravy-like cream sauce over it. Ewww? It was sort of a joke. Everyone kept asking...what are these, no one has the nerve to try it (haHa). The mini quiches were really yummy and all the other apps. below is the menu Mariana sent me. If you are going to go on a site visit, you may as well taste the apps that you are interested in too.

 

These are what I chose:

 

COLD

Cheese with grapes and nuts

Guacamole and salsa with totopos

Acapulco shrimp ceviche on tartlets

Grissini with Prosciutto ham

 

HOT

Mini Quiches (mix half quiche lorrain & half spinach?)

Sausage in blanquettes

Mini tamales

Beef brochette with blue cheese sauce

I finally have the salsa dancer's contact information (and here's a direct line to fire dancers as well apparently). Here's an excerpt from my email with Claudia (CDM coordinator)

 

Regarding your question bellow, it is my pleasure to share the information with you! For Salsa Teachers or dancers, I contact a company named Show Happens at Cabo, the contact name is Jorge Cuervo, you can email him at show.happens.at.cabo@hotmail.com, he has the contacts for any kind of shows (Cubans, Mexican, Fire Dancers, etc.).

Who this was really helpful. I just read all 16 pages.

 

I hope you brides will look at this and answer a question I have.

 

After having a DW, what type of dress do you suggest? Do you think it's alright to wear "traditional" wedding dress or do you suggest a more informal, lighter one?

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
