Hi Koolatta,

Oh what a shame we will be there from 27th Nov for 2 weeks so will just miss you. Can you believe how quickly it is coming around?! I can't wait to read about everyone's experiences once we get back.

Hi ladies!

 

So my wedding is fast approaching and I don't do much posting but I do a lot of reading and wanted to say thanks for all the info and advice!!

 

Starting to get very excited- Morgan your stuff/pictures have been a blessing! thanks very much.

 

We are having a legal ceremony followed by a private reception at the PCB. We didn't have a choice b/c it looks like we'll have between 80-90 people which I can't even believe. The amount of friends/family joining us is overwhelming and I don't really think it will hit me until I'm there.

 

Quick question to anyone who had a legal ceremony- how much can you add to it to make it a little more personal? We were told we can write our own vows. But what about having an opening/closing read before/after the legal stuff??

 

79 days until I'm a Mrs! 61 crazy folks booked!

I'm not sure about adding to the legal ceremony, but I am pretty sure you can not change the script at all. I think it has to be those exact words

 

I'm sure it's covered somewhere on the forum. Search legal ceremony mexico or something like that.

Not too bad for flower prices. Are your parents and siblings wearing flowers? I'm still trying to decide where to stop when it comes to flowers. Of course the wedding party will have them but I think I want our parents and my siblings to have them too! What is everyone doing?

 

 

* GOOD NEWS: I am having my dress made as we speak!!! I'm so excited!! Since I live in China, I brought pictures to a wedding dress shop and they are making it for me. It's a Bonny dress, it was $350 in the U.S. and I'm only paying $70 here in China! I hope it turns out okay! I'll keep you posted!

I did flowers for just our moms. I didn't think our dads would want to wear them. It would be different if they had suits on. I think his mom liked her flower, but I know my mom loved hers. she was wearing it with her tamk top at breakfast the next day :)

 

at traditional weddings, I don't think siblings get flowers.

 

I did give everyone a hair flower in their OOT bag & a few guests wore it to the wedding.

Hey Cat Brides!!!

 

Let's get some chatter going! I just got the 2010 wedding package list. What perks is everyone getting? We are doing the Renewal of Vows ceremony ($399) but since we will have more than 10 rooms booked, we get it FREE!!!

 

I wish I could post it but I don't have enough posts yet!

I just got the prices as well. We are doing the Vows ceremony too, how did you find out that with 10 booked rooms its free? We have about 30 people attending so now I'm thinking that our package will be free.

Does anyone know if the sand is hard where the ceremony takes place? I'm trying to figure out shoes for the Bridesmaids and don't know if I should have them get heels or not.

The package wasn't free with 10 rooms when I booked. That is nice! Still at $399 it's a bargain.

I can't remember how hard the sand was, but I wore flat sandals & my mom wore wedges. It looks like mike's aunt is wearing heels in our group picture. you can see it by clicking the wedding album link in my siggy. The sand does look pretty compact, but it's hard to judge.

    • 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.
