Ladies,

 

There is a language barrier. If you look very carefully at your emails that you have recieved from Claudia, you will see that improper grammar and sentence structure is not being used. With that being said, I have found that by only asking one or two questions at a time, works best.

 

Here are some pictures that I have gotten from Claudia.

We are having our reception outside, with the round tables. We are bringing our own chair sashes in turquoise and using the white table linens. My fiance likes those the best.

 

Sorry about the size.

Thats what FH and I are doing...

 

We have our one piece of luggage, and then in a smaller suit case we have packed all wedding gear.

 

As far as I know there is a luggage restriction. So the third bag will be charged extra. But I think its only $20 (dont quote me on this...)

 

We're bringing, our wedding favors, and decor, ect, in that luggage, and it all fits perfect. :)

We are also going to be bringing down extra luggage with us. Plus, some of our guests [my two sisters and their husbands= 4 people for sure] are only going for one week, meaning that they will only fill up one suitcase each. However, they will be bringing two each, allowing us to fill them up with our wedding extras. Plus, I will probably need another suitcase or two.

Hi Maegan, It took me forever to hear back from them on a date. I would also suggest asking for availability around a date you are looking for. Once I heard back that my date was not available I had to start all over again . . . boo!

 

Once I got assigned to an actual wedding coordinator the communication has been better. Claudia normally gets back to me in about 2 or 3 days.

 

Good luck!

Thank you--another question: Can anyone thoroughly explain the difference between under the stars and ocean scents? Is the only difference really the VIP status? What does that mean anyway? Thanks in advance!

Sea Breeze Package: Private dinner choosen off a set menu from one of the a la carte restaruants, dinner can only be held in a banquet room for parties over 11 people, if under 11 they do it in the restaurant you choose the same menu from. (note there is a $20pp charge for any guests over 20)

 

Under the Stars: Private dinner with the menu choosen from 4 differnt options (this is different food than served at the restaurnts, specially made for weddings) You can order a taste test, but they charge you to do that You can mix and match from the 4 different menu options (meaning a app from choice 1, dessert from choice 3, etc), but you have to choose only one 4 course meal for your guest unless there is a vegitarian or soemthing. ie. if you choose beef for you main course, everyone gets beef, unless the are a vegitarian, you can't let the guests pick from either chicken or beef, you choose for them. (note there is a $60pp charge for any guests over 10)

 

Ocean Scents: Same dinner as the Under the Stars, but you and your FI get VIP Status (Top Shelf booze, unlimited a la carte restaruants, special section at the Jaquar's Discoteque) This doesn't matter much if you are staying at the Palace, though.

 

Alcohol is based on where your guests are staying (ie. If they have a Colonial/Tropical wristband on, they will not get top shelf drinks at your wedding) but some one could just order it for them :)

Thanks so much for your help =) i appreciate it!

Has anyone had their reception on the beach, along with a dj and dance floor? If so, how was it? That is what I am leaning towards as of right now.

    • 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.
