Josie - the videos are awesome!!!

 

Do any of you know the proper ettiquette (sp?) for sending out thank-you cards? I still have not sent thanks yous for the shower I had because it was 2 weeks before the wedding and I had no time. Is it to long after if I send them after the holidays for both the shower and wedding?

Hi Everyone,

 

Nora- thanks for the advice. i think i'm going to go to the little sales pitch and just see what its all about i mean whats 90 minutes of my life if i can somehow get a semi-paid for place to stay for a vacation. i'm not really expecting anything out of it but i'll let you guys know how it goes.

 

Joise - your wedding looked amazing!! did you bring the chair bows and fans yourself or was it through RIU

 

Sammysgirl - yea for going back to school!!! that is so exciting! good luck

 

i was wondering what you girls are doing / did in terms of the photographer. Did you just use the one they recommended or did you bring your own. I was kind of hoping to bring in an outside photographer and was told it would be 100$ for a day pass for them.. however i never really realized how much wedding photographers are.... what do you guys think is a reasonable budgethuh.gif

 

also about the reception i remember that some of you girls are having a private reception with a dj. i'm worried that my guest count wont be enough for a private reception and i dont want to pay extra if i just have 25 people. but then again i dont want to miss out on the first dance and father daughter dance.... any ideas?

 

Alright! take care

 

Lynn

Josie and Lisa thank you so much for all your info! Your pics are gorgeous! I'm so glad to hear you both had excellent weather and a great time!

Dreamingofsunshine- I am using an outside photographer. I have read great things about the photog the Riu provides but I chose to hire Blue Lens Caribe, they are located in Riviera Maya and have been so great to work with thus far. I will pay the daily vendor fee ($100)- I found that prices can really vary- since our wedding is at 3 and reception isnt till 9 or so I had to book for all day which starts getting expensive.- but this photog group really worked with me to give the best arrangements of photos since I had to book for a full day but probably only need them for 5 or 6 hrs.

Dreamingofsunshine - I used the resort photographers (package 8, I think, it was $1200) They deffinately were not the greatest at coming up with poses but all our photos turned our beautifully. I just took charge and told them what I wanted. I would use them again, just be sure to have a list prepared of all the photos you want to get. You definately won't remember them all on the day of!!

    • 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.
