Hi, yes I am 110% sure guests and children from the Gran Porto can attend the wedding and reception.

Thanks!
I have not been able to reach mine since Tuesday. I have sent 2 emails to confirm she received my contract, but no reply yet. I am extremely frustrated because I would really like to get going with this planning process. Does this mean we have to put a point under The Royal for the scoreboardhuh.gif

They are. Guests are allowed over from the Gran a 1/2 hour before the start of the ceremony.

NOOO We cannot let them have any points. I know its frusterating but it has been this way for all of us sad.gif Have you girls tried calling? I found this tactic works way better recently.

Right after I call I ask for them to e-mail me back so I have confirmation in writing. If I don't get it back in two business days they get another nice phone call from me until I do get it :)

I understand people are busy, but this is getting rediculous! I shouldn't have to chase after you to do your job! Know what I mean? Well, I'll give her a call on monday to see if that gets the ball rolling. Thought things would have been better after our last hiccup, but I guess not!

I agree that calling is probably your best bet. I was lucky and Doreen actually picked up her direct line when I called yesterday. I didn't use the 1-800 number though which might require that you jump through more hoops before speaking with an actual human.

Quick update on my wedding dress shopping trip today...The dress that I liked the best was completely different than what I expected. It was the Maggie Sottero Reema. It looks very different on the website than in person and I would have the straps removed. It had more beading than I thought I would like but the shape was very flattering and the tulle skirt is gorgeous. The Anniston, which is the dress that I went to look at was actually stocked in their plus-size dept so I had a hard time envisioning how it would actually look on me...the proportions were pretty off. I don't think that I"m ready to buy yet but I'm def getting a better idea of what I do and don't want.

ALSO...I'm heading out of town tomorrow morning to go on a cruise with FI and his family :-) FI is afraid that I might go into BDW withdrawal. LOL...he might be right. I hope everyone has a great week. GO TEAM!

Hello all,

first I want to say thank you for all the advice, now that the holidays are over my wedding is fast approaching! I will post my save the dates and invites as soon as I figure out how. I did the boarding pass std, got a great deal from a guy on Long Island, and i did my invites with heather at etsy.com (Talavera Mexican Tile Pressed Wedding by LetterpressLight on Etsy[]=tags&includes[]=title) which I loooove!!

 

anyway, my question is regarding getting ready, how far in advance should I book for hair/makeup, and if my wedding is at 6, what time do i need to be there by?

Also, can I get it done with my bridesmaids? even if they are staying at the Gran Porto?

 

Thanks

Denise

I emailed Kimberly Tuesday or Wednesday and I have not heard from her. She usually replies same day o next day so I'm assuming she's on vacation or out of office. I'll email again next week.

 

Lisa, enjoy your trip!!

    • 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.
