Sammysgirl Im gonna FB friend you:) I cant wait to see your pics! SOO glad to hear everything was great- that really puts my mind at ease!

One question- Did you change into a diff dress for reception? Im just wondering if it will be really hot at Chilis since I think it is open air and I will need to get a short dress to switch intohuh.gif And what is with the forecast? There is a lightning bolt all the way through next sunday- Im hoping they are the kind of small tropical rain storms that last 10 min only?! I told myself I'm not going to look at it again- just hope for beautiful weather!

 

We leave on Wed the 26th, our flight is at 9 Am so we will be there by lunch! Ive got most stuff done- I still need to put first dance and father daughter songs on a cd, as well as some special ceremony songs and fit the oot bags into some sort of suitcase/ crate thing. O and make maracca tags, I ended up ordering organza coral chair bows and Im also bringing raffia fans and sand ceremony stuff. If I knew how to put pics on here I would share them...

 

Samira we will barely miss each other! We check out Sun the 30th and head to Excellence Playa Mujeres for our honeymoon! but you'll be running into some of my guests that are staying through the week. I can't believe you have 55 people and they won't let you have the earlier dinner! Why if you offer to pay do they care you are 5 people short?!

Hi Paige, its not the num of people, god knows why they wont let us have an earlier dinner and I am even willing few hundred dollars etc. I think they just dont want to close the restaurant early for our private dinner since they want other guests of the resort to be able to eat there.

 

but anyways I am not worrying abt it anymore, we will find sth to entertaintain our guests for 3 hrs :-)

 

Anyways good luck and safe travels!! you will have a blast!!

Paige- its your photog staying at the resort at all? If so Rebecca did not bat a lash at me saying a "friend" would be doing our pictures. PS- Rebecca is super sweet but kind if a disaster. I will include this in my review, but for those of you leaving soon I thought I'd give you the heads up. The meeting was super easy and she gave me everything I wanted, but when it came to the wedding day she was literally yapping at me because SHE was running late! She was trying to force me to go down the aisle without the groom there! The groom and GMs were standing inside because it was so facking hot and SHE was 15 minutes late getting to us! Could have been a fluke, but just stay calm and remeber its your day and YOUR ceremony if something like this happens. I just simply told her, you can stand here and blame this on me all you want but the schedule you gave me said to be ready at 3:55 and I was ready at 3:55 and you were not here. I will not walk down the asile until the groom is there. Good luck trying to carry me!

 

I did not wear two dresses for the reception. Chilis wasn't dreadfully hot. If you love your dress, I would encourage you to continue to wear it, otherwise you willl literally be in it for 25 mins.

 

As for the forecast...it is hit or miss. The last 3/4 days of our trip had the lightening bolt and it was on and off rainy, but one of those days at the bolt and it was cloudy in the morning but cleared up by the afternoon. After talking to the staff at the resort they said that you cannot trust the forecast more than 2 days out because it changes so quickly....

Hey Lindsey, who is Rebecca? Is Ael not there anymore, I am wondering since I haven't heard from her lately.

 

Also tried finding you in FB but can't seem to find you.

I'll add you girls!

 

I'm not sure about Ael. She was the one who contacted me at first but Rebecca was who I met with and who coordinated my wedding.

 

PS- i never got my chair bows back from her so if you are taking stuff like that and you want them back make sure you ask.

    • 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.
