Does anyone have info. on a cocktail reception? Prices/location etc. or any other info would be helpful. We are considering one as there is so much time in between, but the costs are very quickly adding up!

Christina - Erika actually advised against having a cocktail party in between my wedding and reception. My wedding was at 4 and the reception started at 7. After standing around mingling for a while (they provide champagne after the ceremony) my guests just made their way up to the White Sands lobby bar around 5 b/c our reception was at La Laguna. It actually worked out really well b/c some people stopped back at their rooms - heck a couple of our friends went swimming b/c it was so freaking hot! We had a cocktail party the night before the wedding at the Bar Las Rocas at the saltwater pool and it was a great location. I know when we were picking locations there were 3 to choose frome - I just can't remember the other 2. I know that Las Rocas is open to the public until 6 so I'm not even sure that you could have a private cocktail party there or at any of the other locations earlier than that.

Thanks for the info. We were originally thinking that because our ceremony time is so early (2:00) that we wanted to plan something in between. I think we will just have everyone gather somewhere for a few drinks instead of spending the extra money for food. If people are hungry, they can get something! It's a good opportunity for afternoon siestas too!

Just wondering if anyone knows how much it is to have the draped ceiling fabric at the private reception?

Thanks!
I was wondering that too. Have you e-mailed the WC's yet? Let us know what you find out if you did.

Sent my first email to Rocio, and heard back within two days, nice!

Reserving my wedding date for December 1, 2010.

She mentioned a $300 USD deposit to hold the date.. How did you ladies go about paying this?

Thanks!

    • 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.
