How many people are traveling with you?  Have you picked/reserved anything besides your date with the resort?  I agree, they are WAY overpriced!  I am doing the complimentary package and just bringing orange chair sashes for the ceremony.  They will be giving me an alter flower in place of my bouquet.  I am also bringing orange and white lanterns to hang from the pandero terrace for our cocktail party.  Other than that, really the only other stuff I'm bringing are my gifts, OOT bags and bouquets.

Hey Girl! We have a total of 47 guests plus me and the groom. We are so super excited. We leave in 21 days! I am bring my OOT bags, an ipod docking station, cake topper, toasting flutes, cake servers. I still haven't ordered my chair sashes. Do you know if they will set those up for you at the ceremony and/or reception??? I'm just worried we will have to do it ourselves and when in the world will we find the time!!??

 

I also haven't decided where to have the ceremony...anyone have a suggestion for me?

We are doing the complimentary package and adding on the horse and carriage ride and the harpist. I hope it's worth the money. We are keeping the complimentary wedding cake and just having the servers cut the cake in 49 pieces instead of 35. lol I figure we are having the Italian buffet for our dinner and that comes with a bunch of different desserts so why pay to upgrade the cake right? Thoughts on that??

 

What private events is everyone having? We are doing a welcome dinner the night before the wedding, a breakfast the morning of and the cocktail hour and reception. I've been emailing Cristing (WC) alot lately and she hasn't been responding very quickly. Does anyone know if they have a rehearsal for the ceremony?

If you are looking for a place to get your sashes, I used cvlinens.com.  I have heard from girls in the past that you just bring your decorations to the wedding planning meeting and they will take care of setting everything up for you -- including lanterns, sashes, etc.

 

The sun sets in June in Riviera Maya around 730ish.  I am getting married a few weeks after you and my wedding time is 5pm.  If you want more sunset pictures, you could go for 6pm, but I think 5 is perfect --- unless you were hoping for during the day?

 

We are doing the horse and carriage and harpist too!!  As far as the cake, I believe they will make the size based on how many guests you have, so you should be ok with more people.  I'm not paying to upgrade my cake either.

 

The only real "private" event I'm having is a welcome cocktail party on Thursday night.  I planned a "play day" at Playacar Palace for anyone who wants to go with us to the beach on Friday, and I planned a farewell lunch/pool party for Sunday before everyone leaves.

 

As far as a rehearsal, I don't believe they actually 'conduct' one.  I think you are on your own with that. Is everyone planning a rehearsal dinner with your bridal party???  I was sort of on the fence with this one...

    • 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.
