If any future brides have not booked a photographer, please consider Pixan Photography. Here are some of my favorite sneak peeks and i cannot sing him enough praises. post-278682-143656744831_thumb.jpgpost-278682-143656745603_thumb.jpgpost-278682-143656746436_thumb.jpgpost-278682-143656747342_thumb.jpgpost-278682-143656748657_thumb.jpgpost-278682-143656749737_thumb.jpg

 

I think his packages are reasonably priced. Much better than most i researched. And if i could do it one more time, i would have hired him the entire wedding week

re: cocktail party between ceremony and reception

 

 

Hi 

 

I am having a cocktail hour between my ceremony and reception.  It may be 'overkill' but personally, having been to a few dws I like to provide a way for the guests to stay together and have something to do. I have been to one where there was nothing planned in between and many guests stood around on the beach taking pictures which kind of interfered with what the photographers were trying to do and was distracting for the wedding party.  I also worried about people wandering away or back to their rooms. I also wanted to help guests stay together.  Because not everyone knows each other I think this is a good way to keep it inclusive and keep the group feeling of the wedding day intact.  Just some things that I thought of :)

How much time do you have in between the ceremony and reception?

 

I like what she said above trying to keep everyone together and keep that party vibe going. Photographer can get great shots of your guests

Thank you all for your tips.  I spoke with the WC in Miami and she said we can squeeze a cocktail hour in (phew).

 

One more question (ahaha ya right)...we're looking to have a "beach themed" 60+ person Welcome Dinner on the beach with tiki torches and a bon fire.   Can anyone recommend a location at the resort that would offer a large flat beach area for us to do this on? Are Beach Building 3 and Palapa Yoga our only real beach options - or am I missing one?  Any advice on what works/worked best is greatly appreciated.

 

Also - at the private events, did you have to rent the amplifier for music or was music provided? Did you have to rent the amplifier for both a 2 hour cocktail and then another one for a 4 hour private event?

 

Thanks-

Abbie

    • 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.
