Hi Landy,

Thank you for the quick response. I just need something clarified; are we required to pay $150+$240 ($390 total) for music equipment set up for the ceremony and the reception? Wouldnâ€t the music already be set up for the ceremony and can just be moved to the cocktail and reception location (our reception is on the beach)? Iâ€m just wondering what the extra cost is for?

Dear Teesha:

In relation with the equipment for ceremony this is just for play during the 30 minutes ceremony and is the service and the equipment rent it.

For rent the equipment for the 3 hours reception the price I give to you is not per hour it is for the reception event and the price is extra 240 usd, they would set it up and leave it ready for you play in the reception.



Doesn't this seem very expensive just for sound system set-uphuh.gif? We were planning on playing music off our iPod and don't want to pay almost $400. If anyone could help me clarify this, it would be really helpful.

Thanks!

Well as you ladies read in my review, I got the sound system free for the ceremony (5$ mandatory tip) and other brides mention spending 150$ for the sound system for the reception. So obviously they have increased the price a lot. It's too bad the price for the reception wasn't clear in the wedding guide (it just says 150$, without specifying if that is for the ceremony or reception, although the overall music heading says one 45 min set) because you could hold them to that price.

I would complain that other brides in 2008 were only charged 150$ for the reception and that it's not in the wedding guide. They need to improve their wedding guide and be more clear about prices for stuff. I understand for vendors the prices change, but this is not a vendor, it's equipment rental, and it's unfair to you guys to have these surprises.

I think the 50 pics we ended up choosing are pretty decent...but just beware that the other 250 pics he took were horrible. As long as you don't mind only having 50 pics, it is a great way to save thousands of dollars! Good luck!
Great pictures! You make a very good point about only having 50 good ones. This might help explain why some people are very happy with what they got (because 50 good ones is enough to please them) whereas others are upset because most of the pictures are no good.

I just want to make sure that I am getting quality work from her. Also, how long did you book her for? I am thinking 5 hours (getting ready, ceremony, post-ceremony and part of the reception??).

Also, I am waiting to here back from Anabel or one of the other coordinators about finalizing my wedding date!! Hopefully I won't have to wait a month for a reply...lol
I was gonna book her before I found somebody to bring for approx the same cost, I personally love her work. Based on my experience with my photographer I would say 5 hours is enough to get lots of great photos. However if you want her to stay for lots of the reception than maybe you would need more time. But for getting ready, ceremony, and other couple/family/group shots 5 hours is enough.

Try calling the wedding coordinators rather than waiting for a response by email. It's such an important thing to wait so long for a response, and it would suck to find out your date was taken while you waited.

Callie-

 

You look absolutely georgous. I remember seeing you up at the lobby, I loved the pink bow!!! (I was waiting for guests to arrive). I wish we would have got intouch before we all went down there. We could have met up for a drink.

For those of you who haven't seen this yet (I must have been living under a rock when it was posted a few weeks ago) check out this thread for Niels' AMAZING wedding video. Seriously, this is 100x more amazing than any other wedding video I have seen (including my own, which I LOVE).

    • 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.
