Hello AS brides, Our wedding is Oct 26, 2016 and we are starting to make some "decisions". I am getting conflicting info on legal documents, some say we need a legalized-translated long form Birth Cert., passport & tourist card. Others say just passport and tourist card. What is correct?? Also looking for some advise, we are having our ceremony on the beach for 3pm, then thinking pics while everyone can go to one of the bars have some drinks. We are planning an outdoor private dinner (4hrs) with music and dancing, what time do you all think we should do this? 5pm? Do they expect right from 4hrs to move along? What should we do after? Mohito lounge for more dancing? Also bride who brought their own deco!!! What did you bring?, How much did it cost? We are thinking chair sashes for both ceremony and reception, lights and rice lanterns for reception.

 

TIA for the advice :0)

About eve everything else I'm not sure. But as far as decor lots of Brides who don't want to lug everything from home, use Kathy in Playa del Carmen. You can check out what she has on her Facebook page Love and Lace. She has great prices. :-)

I concur katy is the best.

As for traveling from the states we just need passports. You need to know your ss# when applying for one and might need to bring it in if you apply in person. If out of the states in not sure.

 

Some girls on here with afternoon weddings had gaps in their ceremony to reception. If you want to have dinner maybe have it start at 5 or 6 to let people cool off and have drinks while you all take pics. Most photographers will tell you he best time is an hour before sunset so hey might request to take pics btwn4-5. Sensatori does not expect you to have the ceremony and reception consecutively.

Also for chair sashes I used www.tableclothsfactory.com. Another gal used this company and the organza sashes are $0.49 a sash. Great deal since you have to buy sashes for ceremony and reception

@@amyzig2 the guest fees if a guest wants to hangout all day the day of the wedding is $72/adult and $32-$36/child. It's free when they come just an hour before any private event.

For brides that had drink cups in your OOT bags- any suggestions on where to get them and if they held up good. I have been looking on discountmugs.com, but if anyone has any specific recommendations it would be great to know if they really worked

As always, thanks!!

Hi Ladies

 

Something to keep in mind, I am almost positive you do not have the buy chair sashes for both ceremony and reception. I remember only buying 60 (using only 56) chair sashes and they moved it from the ceremony right to the reception. 

 

Past Brides - Please confirm this info. Thx

I really love the passport invite idea and saw a few recommendations on here for Vanessa's destination wedding passports. For any of the brides that used these, were there any concerns with it being too small or hard to read??

Thanks
