Oh, BTW I received an email from another gal having her wedding on our day! She's at the Gazebo too! I don't know what time, but I hope those WC's can turn around a site quickly with 3 brides all getting married at the Gazebo that day. I'm sure we all have different colors and ideas for our set up ya knowwoot.gif
Hey hey hey!!! Haven't talked to you in a while! We will for sure all have to meet and hang out down there! So crazy! I'm sure all that needs to be changed is the chair bows, so I doubt that's too much work! I can't wait!

My in laws have been there and he said that there is nothing to worry about regarding how people will keep busy. Remember they can always go to the bar together where it's paid for! Remember, they are in a tropical wonderland and they'll be happy no matter what!

For sure, we'll have to meet up! True about the chair bows, that and flowers I guess is all that would really need changed out. So I wonder if they give us a little extra time for pictures etc, If I remember right you are the 2:00 wedding and I'm the 4:00 so wonder when the 3rd gal is: earlier, later, or in betweenhuh.gif just wondering if they go every other hour to allow time for photos etc....I'm getting so excited with each plan and decision that falls into place!!! I can't hardly wait:)

I'm planning on bringing an ipod for the reception. May pay for the mariachi band for the ceremony.

I know! It seems like now that travel arrangements are laid down, STD's are sent, dress is bought, photog and DJ paid, and centerpieces and flowers decided on, I can relax!
So, you know another MO girl is the same day? That's crazy! We will for sure have to meet up! How awesome would it be to have some friendships formed that carry over once we get home! Now that's rare.

I know, it's such a relief. I've had over a year of planning as our original date was Oct. 17th 2009 and then in January 09 we changed the date for family travel reasons. I feel like I've been planning forever, but you know, I LOVE it. I could so do this for a job!!!!! Like you said, It feels good to have the travel arrangements paid, the STD sent, invites picked out, colors/flowers decided on, locations at the resort booked, dresses ordered and photog paid. And now that I know my sister is coming I can go ahead and order the BM dresses.
I'm not sure if the other gal is a MO girl or not, she PM'd me on the Unofficial Barcelo site and I wrote back, but she hasn't responded yet. But New friendships are always great and I can't wait to meet new people!!!

do they provide speakers and allow you to test it out ahead of time?

I am also doing the ipod route for the wedding reception. We are going with the Mint Breeze package (for now at least, I keep changing my mind!) and so that includes live music for the wedding ceremony.

 

Does anyone know if they charge any additional fees for the stereo equipment?

 

 

Also, any additional photog reccs? I looked at Elizabeth Medina, but sadly, she may be out of my price range.

When I was in Mexico, I saw the set up of the beach receptions at the Barcelo Maya Colonial and it is beautiful. I'm wondering at the Palace....
The Palace's beach set up is on coral beach. It's really nice, but its smaller. We are staying at the Palace but our reception in front of the beach at the Tropical bc we are having 50 people.

    • 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?
