Speaking of djs, Joanna - you had the poolside reception on the Tulum side. Were you allowed to play your own music via an iPod, or did you need to have a dj (resort or otherwise?).

We used DJ Bob and he is was awesome! I think we paid $350 (I think) for 3 hours. Having a dj really saved us a lot of time, as we did not have to create a play list, it also allowed our guest to request songs that believe me we would never of had on our play list. Our guests danced the night away and we all had a blast. Also DJ Bob is orig. from NJ so he speaks perfect english.

Please HELP!! I am making my own programs and I asked Karla about the order of the ceremony but she didn't have anything official. The only thing she said was...

 

"Sorry I do not have a copy of his ceremony, usually he start with a pray, then talk about the couple, marriage , love, makes a blessisng, exchange rings, vows, adn declares you husband and wife. In general this is the order, if you want to make other kind of ceremony just let me know and I will tell to the Minister there is no problem. You will do your own program"

 

I'm not positive...but I think it's only missing the part about signing the registry (?)...and then we would want to add vows to our kids.

 

Is there anyone that might have something that I can use for reference? Has anyone else done their own programs? THANKS :)

We wrote our own ceremony and told them how we wanted the flow to be.

Perfect!! Do you still have a copy of the order? If not, I will do a search and see if there is a thread about this type of thing. I don't have the foggiest idea about what order things should be in...or even the "official" name of what each section (ie. declaration) is called embarrest.gif

Thanks for your help!!

I can honestly say were were not impressed with the minister at all... watching the video is kinda funny cause we were like WTF? She was not a good speaker, her English was fine, but she kept repeating herself about love... it was weird... and at one point she called Hank Hannah!!! But, after all was said and done, we read our vows and that was important. I would make a program just stating wedding party members, family, that kind of thing... and your songs... processional... all that. The ceremony is quick, and we didn't even have a program, and not one person mentioned it. We had like 55 guests, but we were very low key about most things. Everything happened, and it was all good. Kind of have to go with the flow. (Usually I can be a bit of a control freak lol )

    • 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?
