What music did everyone choose to walk down the aisle to? Not sure if I want to do a traditional instumental song or one with words and more meaning!! What type of cake did everyone choose? Did most of you write your own vows?

Hey ladies! I haven't been on in awhile, but I did want to share something with all of you. I decided I didn't want the traditional instruments for the Bridal Chorus and Wedding March,we are getting married in paradise so the music should reflect this! :) What is better than Steel Drums?!

So I started looking for Steel Drum players who play the traditional wedding songs and I found a guy! If you order the Wedding CD, you get another CD with songs like Margaritaville, One Love...for $25.00! I got the CD's and we LOVE them! The bridesmaids are going to walk down the aisle to One Love and my dad and I will walk down the aisle to the traditional Bridal Chorus. If this is something you're interested in check out the site!

We did a little mixture of both! I had a couple songs that were instrumental but not really your traditional songs at all, and then once they finished our ceremony we'd kissed and everything, they played a song that has lyrics and everything that is one of "our" songs and it was perfect. And it was even funny that one of the lines is "here is the church and here is the steeple, we sure are cute for two ugly people" and we were just laughing playing that for all our family and friends! I say that since it's your wedding and less traditional than a local one would be, that you should go with whatever fits you and FI the best!

As for cake, we had the Mexican milk cake and everyone said it was really good. Turns out I have issues cutting enough pieces but I think DH and I were the only ones who *didn't* end up with a piece so we just pigged out on all the extra whipped cream topping!!

And we didn't write a single word of vows or anything at all! We were doing the symbolic ceremony and just went with what the minister (?) had prepared already. It never occurred to me to check ahead what he would be saying, until I read Michele's comments regarding the religious content of hers! Haha!

So last minute they changed wedding coordinators on me. I have Sandra now. Luckily Ginalyn says she's good so I'm not worried. And actually it turns out that I've communicated more with the concierge then with my wedding coordinator. For example, we wanted a phone number that our guests could call to reach a main wedding person if needed (we didn't want to be the contact person so it's our best man) and the concierge was able to buy us a pay as go phone so we had the number to put on all our welcome packet info.

 

Anyway the reason I'm writing is because I just filled out the wedding questionnaire from Sandra and it mentions that favors delivered to guest's room would be an additional $2 per room. Our traditional favor (maracas) will be given to our guests at the reception but is the OOT bag considered a favor? Was anyone charged for OOT bag delivery?

I think I heard from someone else that the OOT bags would have a delivery charge if the hotel delivered them, so I just did it all myself. Actually to be honest, the first night our whole group was there, I'd been drinking lots (but still less than everyone else!!) and I stayed up until like 3am assembling my bags (the bags were packed flat and all the contents brought down in ziplocks!) and then I ran around to leave them on doors for guests to find in the morning. Everyone got their bags and I saved on delivery charges :)

 

P.S. for those of you who haven't checked out Adrianne's planning thread yet, it's AMAZING and you should go take a look!

Aww you're sweet Meghan!

 

You are crazy awesome staying up and delivery OOT bags :)

 

To everyone... Another question, Sandra is trying to charge us per person for the cocktail hour. We don't need a private bar. We just want to drink the drinks that the guests already paid for. Sandra's email is kinda freakin me out because she has all these questions that I figured we'd discuss once we were face to face...

 

"see below:

First of all timing:

 

 

 

5:00 to 5:30 symbolic ceremony PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO ADD SOMETHING TO THE CEREMONY, COULD BE A SPECIAL READING, SAND CEREMONY ETC.

 

Location of the ceremony: Gazebo

 

Time : 5:00 to 5:30 pm

 

Please let me know how many adults you will have and how many children.

 

Walking:

 

Joshua+ mom

 

Bridal party (bride girls + groom men’s)

 

Maid of honor

 

Best man

 

Do we have a ring bearer?

 

Do we have a flower girl?

 

ADRIANNE + ?

 

Music: If you want you can bring SPECIAL MUSIC AT LEAST 4 DIFFERENT SONGS ONE FOR PROCESSIONAL; ONE FOR WALKING, ONE FOR YOU WALKING IN TO THE AISLE AND ONE FOR YOU WALKING OUT THE AISLE

 

 

 

5:30 to 6:30 cocktail time (we will have the Caribbean trio at the barracuda bar with some Mexican appetizers) while your guest are in the cocktail you probably will be with the photographer taking couple pictures by the beach.

 

6:30 to 9:30 Reception dinner at the banquet room PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED AND CONFIRM IF IT WORKS FOR YOU.

 

Music: WOULD YOU LIKE TO RENT AN AUDIO SYSTEM?

 

TOASTING TIME AND WEDDING CAKE: please let me know if you want to have at the gazebo just after the ceremomy or at the end of the dinner.

 

First dance: If so ---- 7:45 aprox

 

Dance with dad : If so-----7:50 p.m. aprox

 

 

 

The package includes 3 hours of service; most fo the guest should end with their dinner in 1 hour; then you will have 2 hours for dance, speeches, etc; this will be your time and you can manage as you wish; just please keep on mind that if you want to extend the party after 09:30 pm then you should pay the $20.00 usd per person for the extra hour otherwise the party can continue at the Desires bar.

 

 

 

About the menu I only need to know if we have children on the group, vegetarians or any kind of food allergies.

 

 

 

FLOWERS AND DECORATION: I have all the information you´ve sent to Jacy; however I would like to know if there will be extra bridemaids bouquet etc.

 

And I really need to know about the SPA services please; this will be the way to confirm all those services for your friends might want; otherwhise will be up to availability.

 

Attached you will find the stimated balance we have so far."

 

some of the questions I've already answered in my questionaire that I fill out and our SPA appointments are already booked.... her style is different then Jacy's and it's stressing me out.

    • 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.
