Thanks to everyone for your feedback on my guest couple who split up question.  I really appreciate all the opinions and support and am going to go with my gut and invite them both, let them know they're welcome to bring a guest of course but also that the ex has been invited too - so they can decide accordingly.  I'll talk to my other friend about it too beforehand just so everyone's comfortable.  Again, thanks for the input.  Much appreciated

Thoughts?huh.gif

I love these.  But I'm a bit partial to peacock feathers as they are being included in my wedding.  (I'm working on making feather bouquets for my BMS and bouts and peacock feathers are included in those because my colours are turquoise and purple).  I think it would look fanTASTIC with fushia shoes too!

Afterwards - I just learned today that the "teen club" transforms at 11pm into an adults only dance club with dj.  My coordinator (who was on site for a 10-10-10 wedding) said that it was more lively than the mojito lounge.  Mojito lounge has some music/bands but definitely more subdued according to my TA - e.g., no dancing.  When I asked if it was "teen like" in appearence - she said no.  Maybe brides that have been can give their opinion on the quality of the teen hangout turns adult only after 11???

I am doing a coctail reception but as a welcome cocktail.  The time in between my ceremony and the reception will probably be less than 1.5 hrs - I am going to advise people to gather at a bar for a drink in between or go back to their room for a siesta if desired!
 

I'd never heard of this before.  That's great to know - anyone know what time it's open until?  I have a feeling there will be some people (read: many) who will want to keep the party going after the reception.  This might be a good way to do it - as others have said; it's what you make of it and if we have 20-30 people with a DJ there I think it could be a GREAT time.  .....

That would be amazing to have a rep help out with some of our more general questions.  Maybe this would help our WCs have more time to spend on our more detailed requests (quotes, reservations, etc.).  I love it!  Thanks Tammy!

I'm going with eggplant as my colour, probably wont have much of a second colour, but if I do, it would be lime green. i've seen a few pics of those in combo and they look awesome together.

Just my 0.02.

For my wedding  however I am a fan of a deep purple (plum) or burgandy if pushed into a corner to decide.   So...I've looked at a few websites, incl "the knot" and I am not convinced by any one colour as "awesome"....

but I am partial to the plum/purple:

the debate (all including green and likely some white with a plum backdrop):

purple and orange

purple and yellow

purple and lime only

another combo???

My style is- sharp, modern and simple.

Thoughts?

I will try and post some pictures tomorrow. But I would guess about 8'x8' and about 7 1/2' tall.

We have gone for the silver package but there are alot of things within the package that we don't require and want to trade them for other things, have any of you's done trades with you WC? If so are they fair trades?

We were not able to trade anything. So we reduced our package and are just adding things on now.

We're getting married January 24. Our colors are turquoise, lime-ish green and white. If that helps we should talk.

 

Also to any other girls who are getting married January 22-28 (not the 24th), I have a hairstylist and makeup artist coming with us. If anyone needs her, I can put you in contact with her.

Overall it is quite windy on the beach. However if you have the candles in a slightly deeper votive holder it might work out very well. But I would think the ones where the flame is exposed you might run into problems with the wind.

Too funny. I was there in April and had no idea.

Glad I'm not the only one Jamie! LOL

has anyone heard anything about other companies like luxe or weddings by oceans?  i've heard mixed reviews about all these three companies - but I guess that's the way with everything! everyone has their own personal experiences, good and bad :)

 

thx!!

Using Weddings By Oceans. Overall they have been quite good. Just sometimes you have to follow up with a few items. But they are handling dealing with the WC for us. So it's nice to deal with someone face to face, and they take care of it for me.

    • 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.
