Hi Jackie,

Did you use your BOSE ipod docking station for your reception on the Cove Terrace? We are having our cocktail party there and wanted to know how the sound quality was or did you decide on renting the equipment?

We decided on renting the equiptment, it was $250 for the speakers, microphone and the hook up to play the i pod. I'm glad we did it that way because I think the sound might have gotten lost otherwise. And I wanted the music loud because it was dinner & dancing.

But for background music for a cocktail hour you might be able to get away with the bose.

I just wanted to give a quick description of the DVD ~ since that is what I was looking for before I left for my wedding. =)

 

The DVD is about 30 minutes long and it begins when the WC picks you up! The videographer seemed to have a "check list" of things she wanted to tape. One was putting on some lip gloss. I had just given all my makeup to my mom to take to the ceremony so I put on some mascara. They tape you looking out the window, in the mirror, etc. Seems a little corny when you are doing it, but they edit the video and it's really nice. They also tape the walk/ride to the ceremony. There is more than one videographer so they don't miss anything! The ceremony was great, they really captured everything. They edit out the bad stuff too...like I needed a bobby pin to hold my hair back and so my sister gave me one of hers. (it was not on the video) Also, after the ceremony they had taped all of us kinda standing around, chatting and taking our professional pictures. They used our ceremony music and then Jack Johnson's Better Together. (we did not tell them what to use) But it was perfect! WELL worth the money! So anyway, keep your lip gloss with you! LOL! If anyone has any questions feel free to ask. We still have our ATR this weekend so after that I will write a full review.

We picked ours beforehand, so that we would get what we wanted. You can pick them when you are down there, but they may not have what you want at the time and you may have to pick something differant.

We picked ours when we arrived so nothing would get lost in translation i.e. colors, size, ribbon, etc.
They also had way more arrangements to pick from than they sent me before hand that I hadn't even thought about.
Just some tips:
-think in season....this will assure the flowers you want will be there and at a cheaper cost
-bring pictures...they can mimic basically anything you want
-send your WC some idea before hand so if you do have a special/difficult order they can make sure they have it ready for you

Did anyone ask if you could go and pick up flowers from Playa the day of instead? It would only be half outside vendor if you picked them up I suppose

Haha that's funny, we actually thought about doing that! Come the day of the wedding though I don't think anyone wanted to deal with it. Plus it's about 30-45 minutes just to get to Playa so what you're paying for the cab amounts to the same price you pay just going with the resorts flowers.

Was that $250 total? I looked at the sound system sheet and they are wanting $325 for the first hour and up to $400 for 4 hours... it's worth it if you have a private reception but if only having cocktail hour it doesnt seem like a good deal since you have to spend $325 for just one hour. I dont know what to do!!! Watch I will change everything up at the last minute!

Hi ladies! Ive been looking at these luminary paper bags, where you put the battery operated tealights in them and they glow at night...was thinking about having a bunch of them around the area where our reception will be...just wondering if anyone thinks it will be too windy in Mexico in November for these...will they just blow away? what if i put some sand in the bottom of them? thanks for any input...nicole

    • 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.
