    Legal Requirements:

    For anyone who has already been married at this resort what do we need to get married? Our wedding is 4/24/09 we have our BC's with the Appostile seals needed, passports, but now I see on the Karisma site something about translations having to be done before arrival at hotel what needs to be translated?

    Also did they provide you certified copies of your marriage certificate and what has to happen when you get back to the states, I am so confused right now.
    Thanks for all who respond and help me with my confusion that is right now.

      All we needed is what you already have plus the birth certificates and some additional information about your witnesses if you are using your own. I was confused about the translation thing as well but for some reason that is not required at this particular resort but it is for other resorts of Karisma....makes no sense at all and was confusing. You should be all set.
      We paid the extra money to have our marriage license translated and sent to us....BUT we have not seen it yet and we have contacted Lomas Travel a couple of times now. We should have had it a few weeks ago. You do get the Spanish version to take with you and you can have it translated when you get back to the states if you want.

        thanks so much, that helps with the confusion. How much extra did you have to pay to have it translated into english? I might just wait till we get back to the states, but want to make sure we won't have probelms when we go to change my name over. I know we will have to translate the certificate into english, do you know who to contact for that info, I have no clue on what needs to be done for that.

          Wow...these budgets seem pretty steep if they don't include your trip cost and photographer cost. We are spending $4000 on our trip, $2000 on the wedding package....I'm trying to stay under $4000 for the photos and food for the reception if possible. We will have about 50 people. We are also getting the DJ for $1400? So I guess with our trip cost it will be between $10-12k. This doesn't include dresses, decorations or the reception back home. Our reception here will be about $8000 with food/music/rentals.

            I think it was an extra $200 to have them translate it. I have not legally changed my name yet because the social security office will not take a non-translated version of the marriage license and we are still waiting on that. Judging on my experience..i would bring it home and have a local person do it.

              I think maybe some people are paying all travel expenses for their guests...I don't know.

                Anyone doing the set menu for $12/person? I was wondering if this is still considered a "private dinner" so they still provide all tables, chairs etc.... I know it might sound cheap but I have been to several weddings and the food is hardly ever memorable and half the time I hardly eat at the reception (just drink and mingle/dance) so I don't want to do a full cocktail party and then a full formal sit down dinner(spending over $5k in food alone). I think it might be a waste of money although nice gesture as guest have spent a lot to come to the Wedding. Do you guys think it would be okay(not cheap looking) if we had people go straight to the reception/dinner site for drinks while were getting pictures...I was thinking of providing the cheese/cracker/cold apps for $150-300/tray while we're getting the pictures and the $12/person meal after....We will then have a DJ, dancing and drinks for the rest of the time. We could order more trays as the night goes on if needed? I want it to be classy and don't want to chince on things so if this seems tacky I would definetly spend the extra for the bells and whistles of a bigger formal meal:)

                  A Speed...my budget is 20,000. we are only at 14,000 right now. We based the budget on 75 ppl originally but we only have 42 people booked. The budget DOES include our trip of 9 nights. The only thing it did not include was the favors and the air fair.

                      I'm still working out our budget...I think I'm going about it backwards tho...I'm figuring out what I WANT is going to cost, and that will pretty much dictate my budget and how much I have to save over the next 10 months!
                      So far this is what I have (based on 35 guests):

                      Wedding package: $2500
                      Travel & accommodations (2 weeks): $6000
                      Wedding day cocktail party/reception: $3500
                      Welcome party/dinner: $875
                      Photography: $4000
                      Videography: $750
                      Extra chairs/bows: $276
                      Flowers:
                      Chuppa decorations: $220
                      Champagen/tiki torches etc:
                      Ipod music rental equipment: $250
                      Projector & screen rental:
                      Firedancers:
                      Dancefloor rental:
                      Furniture rental for reception:
                      Mariachi band: $900
                      bloodwork: $250
                      Room deliveries: $140
                      OOT bags:
                      Other decorations, etc:

                      This totals around $20,000, NOT including all the things I don't have a price on yet! OUCH!!!

                      This doesn't include anything like hair/makeup, spa, spending money, tips, and anything I'm spending at home like clothes and gifts etc.

                      I think I'll be definitely revising this and making some unfortunate cuts, changes to the menu, etc.
