LOL...I don't mind. I had a million questions too! We 30 guests and so we had our dinner in the Tequila restaurant and then walked right outside to the poolside reception (DJ and drinks only). It was honestly perfect and cheaper than paying for the private meal. THe crazy thing was that we were the ONLY people in the Tequila restaurant. Our wedding was at 5, dinner at 6:30, and reception at 8:30. Of course everything ran a little late so the timing actually ended up being perfect. The DJ didn't have the best music choices and didn't say anything over the mic, so we just handed him our Ipod and made our own announcements on the microphone they had set up for us.

So you had your dancing outside with a DJ rather then renting the disco? Did they charge you for that? I did not know you could do that hmmm...

It's $150 an hour for the DJ alone. And then you will have to pay for drinks also... but I still think it's worth it!

Yes, well I found out TWO weeks before the wedding that the disco was booked for my night already. Nice, huh? So you may want to confirm that that is even available for your date. You do have to pay extra for the private reception, but it's $150 an hour for the DJ and $5 per hour for drinks per person ($3 pp after the first hour). After being in the disco, I'm really glad we had it poolside. It's much prettier than the disco and seemed more personal and private.

I completely agree. Plus it's just so awesome to dance underneath the stars! I loved it! AND it was MUCH cooler (as in temperature wise)!!!!

I love your pictures!!!

 

Question, it looks like you only had adults at your wedding, but do you know if they charge the $5 per hour for minors as well? We have quite a few children going with us.

 

Thanks!

Thank you! I would confirm with Jazmin but I don't see how they could justify that because the $5.00 is for alcoholic beverages only...I didn't have any children at mine to know for sure, though.

    • 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.
