Thank you for the encouraging words. I agree that either way, the day will be beautiful! You were a stunning bride...loved your dress and hair. Makeup looks flawless! I can't wait to see the rest of the pics. No worries about the PM... This has been a busy few weeks for you and you're about to travel again...:cool:

Dont worry about the weather. Some of my guests said they checked the weather before getting to Mexico and the forecast said rain the whole week of the wedding, including the wedding day. It rained only one time that week and it was during dinner and lasted no more than 10minutes. The days leading up to the wedding were cloudy, but it still was hot out. You can never tell with Mexico, so dont let the forecast worry you. Your day is gonna be beautiful!!!

 

Sorry about replying to your pm. I responded last week and just now realized it didnt go through. I guess BDW doesnt work well with my phone :(

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous pics.  Love your dress and hair flower.  Can't wait to see more.

 

Thank you so much for explaining the music situation.  We are definitely going with the docking station and speakers instead of a DJ and I am happy to hear it worked well.  We plan to have a main playlist for the reception and just separate ones for the special dances.  I hope it goes well. 

 

Did you have the docking station during your cocktail hour as well??  If so, did they move everything from place to place without any issues?

Two things...

 

(1) is the flower in your hair the one you can buy fresh from them?  Because it's beautiful!!

 

(2) was the dolphin swim experience as bad as it seems?  this is one thing my FI and were really looking forward to, and now I am starting to think maybe we should just do it privately on our own? We definitely want pictures...was the only option really $250??

We hired the Mexican Trio for cocktail hour. If youre planning on using the Pandero Terrace for cocktail hour then I dont think the docking station will work very well. It was very windy and little space. If you plan on using another area for cocktail hour, Im sure theyll work out whatever they need to in order to accommodate you. Just tell your WC and shell work it out :)

It was fresh. I paid $30 and they actually gave me 3 flowers, which I didnt expect. All the flowers, except for the ceremony flowers, are real. They are all delivered to the resort the morning of the wedding.

 

To me, it was ok because we didnt have to pay for it. If I had paid for it I would have been disappointed. Ive always wanted to swim with dolphins and was so excited about doing it. I think the biggest disappointment was the fact that they didnt allow you to take pics of your own and then they tell you if you want photos and video, you need to pay 250. My SIL got the disc and it included video of almost everything we did with the dolphins and pictures of her and her husband. They were there for an hour trying to haggle the guy and he wouldnt budge. Maybe its possible to book the excursion and when you get there, you can upgrade the package so that you get to swim with 2 dolphins and do more tricks with them. Dont get me wrong, we all had fun and it was a cool experience, but Im glad we didnt pay $150 or so to do it.

 

Hope that helped a little. :)

That does help, thank you!  We will have to weigh our options and see...I know that there are other places that offer it, but of course then you don't get it for free.

 

Did you have your cocktail hour at the Pandero Terrace?  That is where we are planning to have our welcome cocktail party.  We purchased paper lanterns to hang from the terrace, I hope that works out ok with the wind.  I have seen others do it in the past.  So you suggest doing the trio over the docking station if we are at the terrace?

We did have it at Pandero. I really cant say that I would recommend one over rhe other. We completely missed cocktail hour. My guests did say they enjoyed the trio though. Im not sure if they were worth the money being that I didnt hear them play. There really isnt much room in Pandero. They put the bar outside of the terrace, so Im sure if you rent the docking station, it will be outside too.

FYI for swim with the dolphins pics.... We talked the guy down to $70 for ALL of pictures, 6 prints, and the DVD. Just act interested but keep talking about the price being obscene and they will start haggling FAST.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
