I think we tipper her $50 the first day we met her, and then $20-$40 at the end of the wedding day.

Our day was perfect, but we were also her only wedding for the week, so maybe everythiing went so well cause she only had us to worry abouthuh.gif :)

I like the idea of splitting up the tip. I was planning on just giving Karla 75-100 at our first meeting but it's nice to be able to give her something after the i do's too.

Thanks for the advice, I agree it is a nice idea to split up the tip :-)

Karla has been fantastic with me too. I can't wait to meet her and get all the rest of it planned out. I'm kind of clueless when it comes to decor and all that good stuff so I'm really excited to see the choices.

Are all your guests booked now, Emme and SwoCanadianBride?? That was a fiasco for me but finally we're all sorted out. :-)
Hi Kiera & Emme

Have you spoken to Karla about the new resort photographer? I've got mine all booked up but I'd still be interested in seeing what this new one has to offer.

Hey ladies,

I wanted to add a post now that I can say "We are officially getting married at the GBP Tulum on February 18th, 2010!"

I know that it has been said numerous times.....but I am soooooo thankful to have found this forum. All of your questions and comments have made our planning much easier and super exciting.

Thanks to my friend Carie for telling me about the forum!!!

I look forward to communicating with everyone about our upcoming weddings (Even though I feel like I already know some of you from the 190 pages of reading that I have done!)

    • 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.
