Hi ladies! Question for past brides. Did you have a rehearsal? Right now I am debating on a rehearsal. My pastor will not be there as well as half of my bridal party. So I am not even sure if it is worth it to have one.. I am just wondering how you know when to come down to the beach. Do the wedding coordinator take you down and tell you when to walk and what not? I am curious. Thanks

hey guys!!

 

we are flying out this saturday and i am officially excited!! our wedding is on may 24th and i think as of today, everything has officially been taken care of! just waiting for the day to come now!

 

i'm not sure if this is the right thread to post in, but here goes. as my fiance and i are not big on dancing, we opted to bring a sound system that also acts as a microphone to be used during the ceremony as well as the toasts and speeches during dinner. it is a stand alone item that is used for outdoor events. http://www.ionaudio.com/products/details/block-rocker-2010-model - also known as the blockrocker!

 

we will also use it at our bonfire. we figured this is much cheaper than getting the dj and sound system. the most important thing for us was the microphone. i am trying to find out if any brides that will be there after our wedding who would like to buy it from us for their use. figured i'd  try to make my money back as well as save someone else the hassle of lugging one of these things down. we purchased it for  $140 and would like to get that back. i think it's fair as it will have only been used twice and you save on the troubles of bringing it there, and also $20 that it costs to ship it as a second luggage. if anyone is interested, please let me know!!

 

if no one is interested, i hope this at least serves as a good alternative for the brides who are in similar situations, just want a good mic option for both the ceremony and the dinner.

 

thanks and happy planning.

We were married in April.  We opted not to have a rehersal because we really didn't have much af a wedding party.  They took care of everything.  They tld when and where to go, and when to start walking.  The entire ceremony went wonderully even with a few ad libs.  If you don't have anything particularly custom to your ceremony you should be fine with out it.  Just talk to your wedding coordinator the day of so you know how everything is working out.

M1984- I wish I would have known earlier!!

We leave June 4th and would have bought it for sure! We just bought a Bose system, PLUS we are renting the sound system just for the microphone. :(

 

I hope someone else can help you out!

 

And by the way.... EEEEEEE! Your day has almost arrived! I am 2.5 weeks away and I can barely control my excitement. You must be unreal excited! I wish you the best time ever! I hardly wait to hear all about it! Congrats!

Aww. I'm sorry I didn't post it earlier. It never occurred to me until later that people would be in the same predicament. And okay, I admit it, I'm a procrastinator. If you just bought it, is there any way you can return it? Or is it too late to cancel the rental? Not trying to push you at all, just figured it's a win win for us both if you wanted it!

 

And yes, it took me a really long time to get excited that when I started randomly messaging people "MEXICO!" they thought I was crazy. I guess according to them I'm supposed to be excited a lot sooner but it only really started to get real last week at my fitting. I never had a bridal shower so there was nothing that felt "weddingy".
 

 

And yes, I am so looking forward to my review. I have found this forum so helpful that I can't wait to come back and share what we did!!

 

Congrats to you too!!!!

    • 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.
