Great pics, Monica. GORGEOUS

 

Question for you- did they decorate the gazebo like that or did you have to bring the fabric to cover the whole thing? I'm so confused about how much fabric/tulle they actually have vs. what needs to be brought with you.

The pic of your flower girls toes are so cute!

Thanks everyone :)

They did have enough tulle to decorate it like that. I took a pic of what I wanted and she was able to do the tulle like that. I left the hanging fake orchids there. Who knows if they keep that stuff to re-use but it would be nice if they did.

Quote from SunBride:

 

"The civil ceremony is performed by a judge (usually female) who speaks Spanish and your wedding coordinator will translate. The ceremony text is always the same (see link below) but you can add your own vows, readings, sand ceremony, etc."

 

I was wondering if anyone could expand a little bit on how much we're aloud to alter our civil ceremony text. I have found some really beautiful passages (an introduction, a hand ceremony, vows, and a closing) that I'd like to use in addition to the standard text used by the judge at Dreams Tulum that SunBride was kind enough to post on the 1st page of this thread. I guess I'm a little confused because obviously none of the text that I'd like to add would be in spanish. Would the wedding coordinator read my text (quite lenghty) and then the judge would take over at some point and perform the standard legal text? Just askin'! I hope my question isn't too confusing!

i love monica's gazebo design, but instead of hanging orchids I bought the hanging green and blue disk shells from World Market...I'll find a pic. If anyone is getting married after jan 17 2009, i could ask Landy to keep them for that...

 

Oh my goodness, neen I love it! It's so beautiful! What a nice way to dress up the gazebo.

Yes, I think that's exactly how it would work. The coordinators are so flexible that I doubt they woudl have any problems with adding all those parts to it, although if it got crazy long there might be a problem only because the judge would have to leave (but I'm talking like if it was insanely long, which is unlikely). But I think intro & conclusion, hand ceremony and vows would be fine and since they won't be translated it will likely only add like 3-5 minutes to your ceremony. Hum... why didn't I think of adding an intro & conclusion? Would make it so much nicer. Then again, I honestly didn't care all that much about the ceremony text (aside from our vows).

Neen- that is GORGEOUS!

Monica- thanks for the tip on the tulle. Would be awesome if they kept the orchids. From the sounds of it- they're not so good at this part:)

Why don't you try emailing them and asking them to keep it for you? Maybe knowing that somebody is definitely planning on using it will give them the motivation to save it. Worth a try!

Too bad your wedding is still several months away though. If it was only a month or so they'd probably keep it for sure.

I've asked about why they don't keep stuff from weddings and Sandra told me it is just too much! I guess they have no room for it?! Anyway...maybe if we ask for something specific they would go out of their way to save it.

    • 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.
