Nope, we had our friends sing/play guitar for our first dance, and then hooked up the iPod to the speakers for the rest of the dance with a playlist we made ahead of time (dinner playlist and dance playlist).  We ended up flying down a videographer and photographer, as both of those things were very important to us :)  I will post the photos as soon as I get them back!

Hello ladies just joined this site. I am planning my wedding for November 2014. I know I have time but its never to early to start. I have been in touch with WC but bc my wedding is in nov its taking them longer to answer my questions. i am just truing to set my budget. 1. I am planing on 25 to 30 ppl so mint package is ideal for us, but I want my reception to be outside. Is it possible to have it moved. If so what is the additional cost? 2. If I end up getting strawberry package, ppl have been saying there is additional fee of $65, If so is the fee for any additional person after 15 people that package covers? 3. Also how hard is it to coordinate hair/ makeup and photographers on the same day as wedding? Did you ladies book the wedding date first than the vendors or found out when the photographer is available then got the date ? Thanks

We had 65 people with the Strawberry Passion package, with a few added extras (light up dance floor, wrapped trees, bridesmaid flowers, etc), and ended up spending about $9,000 on the wedding package.

Hello ladies just joined this site. My wedding is not till November 2014 so the WC little slow with answering my questions, any help would be great still working on my budget. 1. We will most likely have 25 to 30 ppl max so mint package is great bc more ppl included, but we want to have the reception outside. I am wondering if its possible to move the reception but keep the mint package, if so what's the cost? 2. Also if I upgrade to strawberry package ppl said that there is a fee $65. Is this fee for any additional person about the 15 that are included in the package Thanks

Does anybody know how many weeks before the wedding day you need to confirm the final head count for the reception? I sent out save the dates a couple of months ago, and mostly those who have booked already are those who will come, but I still need to send our formal invites. I was thinking of sending them end of Oct (wedding date is april 23) but I don't know when I should tell them to RSVP by.

 

Thanks!!

Hi iryna10,

 

If you want the reception outside you need to book the strawberry package. 

And yes if you have more than 15 guests it's $66 per person. 

 

If you ask for the Mint Breeze, but reception outside, they charge you extra and it basically becomes the same price as the strawberry passion package. I wanted to do the same thing, so I just went with the strawberry Passion. We have 26 people booked so far, so we will pay $3500 for the package and then $726 for additional guests. 

 

Hope that helps!

I think Victoria told me to confirm 2-3 weeks before....remember, they are REALLY laid back down there. Last minute changes don't phase them! I sent invites out in September and asked that people RSVP by January, because that's when our travel agent needed the final payment. Once I had the final payment list from the travel agent, I sent that to the WC. She really didn't seem concerned about actual numbers until about 2 weeks before we arrived.

Thank you so much! You're right they're super chill, I heard back from Xhail my coordinator and she said casually "around one month before" LOL

    • 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.
