Beth, thank-you so much! I feel like it's getting down to crunch time and I need to start getting more organized. This planning sheet will definitely help me out! How come Natalia sent this to you already? Do they normally send it a month beforehand?

 

Can you believe we'll be getting married in ~4 months!? Craziness!

I was wondering if anyone had suggestions or a template for their welcome packet? I am sooo not good at computers and thought I better get started on mine. I saw one on here a long time ago but can't seem to find it anymore.

 

Thanks!!!

When I was doing my site visit I asked Natalia to email me the planning sheet so I could figure everything out! yes-they normally send it a month before.
I can not believe only 4 months to go-it is so crazy how time flew by!

Hey everyone! I can't believe how time has flown by. My bridesmaids dresses JUST came in last night!! Now I need to ship them to my out of state girls and hope they can get alterations in time.

 

I know BC Bride2be is getting married the day before me...maybe some of us girls can meet up for a margarita sometime. Anyone in? I'll be there from the 20th to 30th.

 

Now that the day is quickly approaching, I have been bombarded with questions from friends and relatives that I cannot answer. I was hoping some of you girls could help me out!

 

1. Did anyone use the electronic safes in the rooms to store your passports, ids, money, etc.?

2. My fiance and I would rather bring stuff down in boxes, rather than in suitcases, so that we don't have extra luggage to bring back with us. Has anyone else done this successfully? Will we get haggled by customs more if we take everything in boxes?

3. Do we need to make reservations for any of the restaurants? Or can you just walk in with a small group? Dress codes--I think I heard something about having to dress up for a few of them. Is this true?

4. If anyone brings their own curling iron/straightener, do they need adapters for the electrical outlets? I was thinking not, but just checking.

 

And then one question from me--

 

5. I recently saw a list of flowers on this forum that some resorts in Los Cabos has, but I didn't see anything specific to Dreams Tulum. Does anyone remember some of the different flowers they have (besides what is in the packet--roses and lilies)? I know exactly what colors I want (green, purple, and white) and have a few options ready for when I go down, but was hoping I'd have a better idea of what the florist can do before I leave. Do they have peonies, ranunculus, or hydrangeas? I think I saw someone write in a post that they have dahlias. How much more expensive is it to have some green cimbidium orchids in the mix?

 

That's all for now--but I'm sure I'll have a few more in another week or so!

 

Thanks everyone!

Hey girls,

 

Quick question for any of the recently married brides. Have any of you been given a hard time about honouring the 2007-2008 wedding guide prices? I have an email from Lizet telling me I can have the old pricing, so hopefully everything will be OK for my wedding in May. Just wonderin'!

Ok ok, one more question:

 

Regardless of which wedding package I choose, will I have to pay for a set-up fee for the ceremony and/or reception? I know there was a post about this a couple of days ago, but I'm still a little unclear. We have 53 confirmed guests (and counting), so this could start getting a bit pricey! I guess I was under the impression that the set-up was part of each package. If anyone can clarify, I would really appreciate it! Thanks a bunch.

wow lots of questions!

1) yes I used the safe for our rings, money and my 15" laptop just fit in (not sure if a 17" one would)

3) you aren't allowed to make reservations at Dreams Tulum, it's all first come first served, which can be good because you can be more flexible, but some guests complain of long wait times. We ate out as a group of 10 four times and each time my dad went to the restaurant like right as it opened (or even 15 minutes before) to make sure we could get a table together without havign to wait an hour or two. So that arrangement worked for us.

4) No adapters required, electrical outlets are the same as ours.

flowers:
I don't remember peonies, ranunculus, or hydrangeas being mentioned to me, but that doesn't mean they aren't available. Not sure about orchids but other brides in teh area have said orchids are crazy expensive to get in mexico.

Thanks- I just used the resort photographer. I did "hire" two of my guests who have nicer cameras to take tons of pics and send them to me as a wedding gift :)

Also, congrats on the MRS. Neen and have fun in Mexico!

    • 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.
