Ash, you should definitely email Tiffany. We were quoted at $100 each, and now I have her checking into reducing it to $75 (we are getting 2). She mentioned some sort of sale on the fabric as the reason others were getting a quote of $150, but it seems odd that they would buy this fabric brand new for each wedding -- I would think we are just using sheets they already own (and reuse) -- so, yeah, recheck -- sounds like there is flexibility here.

Ya that's what I was wondering - if it would be helpful because they have Karisma reps there. Hmmmm. I don't know. I can't really think of any questions that I have except for the obvious "why does everything cost so much?"

LOL, ya, thats a good question! They are grabbing our money at every chance they get!

 

I'm trying to decide what to do for our menu options. I am either going with Menu 1A or Menu 1B. Does anyone have any thoughts on what they think would be better, or for those who have already gotten married, what are your thoughts on the menu?

Ok, I think I have Tiffany's FINAL, FINAL answer. White fabric is $50 a piece. Colored is $75. She says that she made a math error on my spreadsheet and that my 2 pieces of blue and 2 pieces of green are now $300 instead of $600.

 

I'm having a hard time with the menu. It is like I want one of this, and one of that, but some things aren't on the menu. Anyway, when I spent last Thanksgiving at Sensatori, I made friends with Michael, the chef at Le Chique. I am meeting with him next month when we go down to finalized some stuff. He said he would put a menu together for us. Can't wait to see how much that costs!!!!

Which meal option do you think is better:

 

1. Stuffed chicken breast with cottage cheese, sun dried tomatoes and olives, accompanied with potato gratin and mixed vegetables.

 

2. Pork Tenderloin with bell pepper pesto crust, roasted endive and corn cakes.

I'd say the Pork. Probably would appeal to more people and sounds good!

Not to change anyone's mind on the pork item. But all the brides so far have raved about the chicken. I am going with the chicken....but it all depends on what you like.

Kittenheart, I think you can mix and match. I asked Tiffany today if I could mix some of the stuff from Menu 1 together, and she said that was fine.

 

Thanks so far for the opinions on the menu! Please let me know your opinion if you haven't already!

    • 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.
