Maggie - love your curls. Did the Salon do your hair? How was the beer pong welcome party, that sounded like so much fun! Also...where did you "party" after hours? Was there any dancing anywhere (teen club???)?

Thanks!

Hi Maggie! I saw you had hydrangeas in your bouquet. How did they do in the heat? Beautiful pics!



Salon did my Curls and Make-up

It was a guy named Edgar (I think) and he was GREAT!!! I took my own make-up but you really don't have too because I liked his eyeshadows more so we only ended up using a little bit of mine. (I spent like $200 on Makeup that we ended up not using that day but I will use in the future)  He Curled my hair at 11am and I got married at 3

It held up till about 6 when I had to put it in a ponytail cause I was sweating. My mom got her hair done as well and everyone in the salon was AWESOME!!! You really can't go wrong you just have to be will to give them direction but in a laid back way

The one BIG piece of advice I can give is just be willing to give a little and let go of control. Everything is not going to go PERFECT but it will go GREAT! I didn't notice little things till I went and looked back at the pictures. Also I feel like if you are easygoing witht the staff they will go above and beyond. I think by the time I got there I wasn't too worried

 

I will say THANK YOU to TISH for some advice because I had someone from my group stand with the music guy for the ceremony and the first dances. She said she only had to help him once but it was nice to know she was there if he messed up. Once we got into the dancing at the reception he just sat there and let it play. I will say too THEY CUT YOU off at the end time. so make sure if there are songs you really want to put then in the early to mifddle part of the night.

Welcome Party - You know I can't remember if anyone played Beer Pong but I know there was some Flip cup going on and it was fun! It was really laid back and you don't need decorations down there! Everyone kinda spreads out on the beach.

 

One night we took over the  "Wave Lounge" which is near the pools at the Prem Section BUILDING 1. The next night we took over the Mojita Lounge and outside of it

 

We went to the Teen club 2 nights and yes it turns into a dance club. I know I only went one night but my friends raved about it. I think everyone was pretty sauced up when they would finally get there.

 

You really can go to any of them. We brought our own IHOME with us for the Welcome party which was PERFECT for background noise then we would take it to the Wave Lounge to have music

ALSO - If you use Caribe Photography thru the resort, Advice have someone pay attention to what you need to do to get your proofs. In all the excitement I forgot to get the card from the photographer and now I have been emailing with the Caribe to figure out how to get my photos and what not. I think if there is one thing I would have gone back to do again I might rethink the budget and bring my own photographer or paid the outside vendor. Not sure how I feel yet. I LOVED our photogrpaher and he was great but I think before we left I should have emailed more with them to figure out exactly how POST wedding was going to work to get the proofs and whatnot

SIde note, They have been responding to my emailed and said they are backloged and will email when my photos are ready so I will let you know how it all turns out. I am sure it will be fine but I also had a friend from home bring their professional camera just in case. Her CDs of pics will be here by the end of thweek. So I will have more and better pictures then.

 We thought she did an amazing job! I also really got to listen and enjoy my wedding. She was also so open to adjusting the ceremony to include the vows we had written!

I am so glad it all went well for you guys :)

    • 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.
