Hello Ladies!

My FI and I just returned from our LC site visit last week. Love it love it love it!!! Here's my silly question though...I'd like to incorporate starfish into invitations, decor, etc. but I didn't see a single starfish while in PV/LC! What are you thoughts?

Also, has anyone been to Epoca? Kelley at LC suggested Epoca and Barcelona Tapas for our welcome dinnerhuh.gif

 

Thanks!

Welcome back! I want to know more about your thoughts on LC, what you liked, what you didnt (you know for those of us who have never been there!)

Anyway...although you maybe didn't see any starfish I don't see a problem incorporating them into your decor, invites, etc. It is your wedding do what you want!

Silly question for you....what is Epoca?

So does this mean you are "officially" an LC bride now?!

You can totally use a starfish. I never saw any there either but we weren't at the bottom of the sea much...LOL If you like them, go for it!

 

Never been to Epoca, we had our welcome dinner at Barcelona Tapas and I can't recommend it enough. Happy planning :)

Epoca is a seaside tapas (every time I say I tapas, I think "topless" which is really funny to me) restaurant in the Romantic Zone (I think). Kelley said the place came highly recommended by another LC bride. Epoca gave her a great deal, tapas and drinks for everyone for 40-ish people for like $500-$600. According to what I've read, it's the new up-and-coming tapas :) restaurant.

Barcelona came highly recommended as well!

LC goods: adorable, charming. Lots of hammocks and seating tucked away in the hills. I am confident that everyone will have a great time!

LC bads: I think it would be difficult for grandmas and grandpas to get around because the beach is lit only by candles once the sun goes down and there are many stairs. This also applies to drunk guests :)

We didn't have any other site visits scheduled which was a little scary but we both absolutely fell in love with the place.

A few suggestions...

1. Don't drink too much the night before because the early morning boat is treacherous with a mojito hangover.

2. I would highly suggest no high heals on LC or downtown PV because of the cobble stones.

When in PV, you must go to El Bodeguita del Media. Cuban bar w/ live Cuban music every night, awesome mojitos (see previous note). Great energy!

Mark and I wish we were getting married next weekend because we're so excited! P.S. We're leaving LC as a surprise for everyone with a note on their invitations to be prepared for a 45 min boat ride (will provide dramamine in welcome bags). :)

Going back to your original question about the starfish, if that's what you want to incorporate into your theme, then you should do it. Just because you don't see a starfish in PV, doesn't mean they don't exist. Besides, starfish are synonomous with the beach in general. It's a great idea. Personally, I'm doing a fleur de lis theme. No relation to the beach obviously, but it means something to me.

 

As for Epoca, sounds fantastic. I am, however, having my welcome dinner at Barcelona. We've eaten there several times and our friend who lives in PV is a friend of the owner. Love the place - can't go wrong with Barcelona Tapas.

i agree with everyone else about the starfish question. i think if that is what you want as part of your theme go for it! but for your other question i have never been to LC before, but i have had tapas before, deliciouso!!

Thanks for the quick review and the info on Epoca.

 

I am getting married at LC and incorporating starfishes into my theme. Go for it!

Starfish- I don't think it's really about "seeing" them right? Some people use orchids as a theme but you certainly won't see them growing in the wild. Just my thoughts. :)

 

As for Epoca- I never ate there. I did take some pics of it when I saw it though because I've heard it's name thrown around on the forum and I thought it would be helpful to have some pics. I will look to see if I have them in my shutterfly account otherwise I will have to wait till I get home.

 

Great lil summary of LC. I will say that my grandparents (and drunk guests wink.gif ) were able to motate around LC. All they really have to do is walk from the boat to the beach- that's the toughest part. They don't really have to hike up all over those stairs like we brides do. BUT my grandparents commented how rushed they were to get to the wedding site once they left the boat. That's the only downside. They arrived late and had to rush so it made it more difficult for them.

I absolutely agree with everyone else - we've seen it all (as far as themes go) ... dia de los muertos, tuscany, morocco, spain, modern, and, yes, Starfish! What's important is that the wedding have meaning for you and your guy and you share that with your guests - no matter what that might be :).

    • 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?
