Good choices. msnwink.gif There wasn't an extra charge for the rehearsal dinner, however, since you will have over 20 guests they will probably make you have a set menu unless 4 are kids and you get kid meals for them.

Welcome back!

 

I think Reyna and gabriella work together- so hopefully it will be fine. The extra chg of 18pp is for ceremony if over certain amt. I guess if you have cocktail hr it's from 6-7 and tropical at 7-11. They are just not clear and by the time you figure it all out. YOUR UP! I picked cocktail hr cause I was told they only rent it from 7-11 and didn't know what my guests would do- but oh well. I have so much to do i'm getting worried and my FI seems to be worthless in the planning- is that normal??

A) Your dining options are the same. You can choose any restaurant to have your wedding dinner. The WCs haven't indicated any restrictions when it comes to selecting a restaurant. If you have 70+ guests, you can have a private dinner & reception combined in the convention center. However, you have to pay per person and the rate starts at approx $50 per plate (depending on your menu selection).

B) The Disco & Convention Center are your options for a reception party with more than 40 guests. However, when I inquired about a lounge set-up, I was advised we could have an outdoor reception in one of the courtyards. As far as the DJ equipment, the WC said we could rent the equipment from a vendor without the DJ and use our own CDs/IPOD. I haven't heard about the bathroom situation.... seems kinda odd not to have one available for a large gathering.

C) I would suggest keeping the invitations as general as possible. Maybe something like "Dinner and Reception to immediately follow."


I'm sure some of the other brides will chime in. Happy planning!


Thanks SOOOOOO MUCH for all that great info. I feel bettersmile03.gif

Jwalkowiak and LindoBride2009 - Welcome back!! I can't wait to read your reviews.

 

I have a question for either of you or ParaisoBeachBride2009. My FI and I are having the civil / legal ceremony and are wanting confirmation of the legal documents that are required. Intially, the WC said they need a Spanish translation of birth certificates with an Apostille, but now she says they no longer need an Apostille. Could you please help me with whether or not any Spanish translations are required?

 

I apologize if this has been discussed previously. I couldn't find it : ) Plus the rules have apparently changed recently.

 

Thank you!

You send in your details sheet picking your locations, but you finalize everything once you get to the resort so you can make changes up until a day or two before the wedding. We kept our invitations basic. We just listed the ceremony time of 4:00 and then put cocktails, dinner and dancing to follow. We didn't specify a location because we weren't 100% sure where everything was going to be. I did print out a timeline with our requested times and locations for dinner, etc. However, if you decide to do this I recommend leaving the times and locations off and just putting blank lines to fill it in, or bring it saved on a jump drive to print out at the resort. I ended up having to cross out times and locations since we changed teh ceremony location and the cocktail hour, dinner and reception all started a half hour earlier and we didn't find that out until we got to the resort. As far as the music, I didn't look at the convention center so I can't confirm the sound. The resort has one large speaker on a stand that you can use to hook an ipod up to. We used it in the Los Vitrales room, but the room was not huge so the sound was fine. If you are going to be in a bigger room then you might want to rent another speaker or hire a DJ with their own sound system.
Those are some great suggestions. Thank you!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
