Hi Ladies!  A few questions for past and future brides...

 

Are any of you doing one big rectangle table for the reception?  We are having a small group of about 20 and the reception is outsite on the CECO Terrace and I don't know if one table will look funny with the dance floor.  But if I do round tables it will only be 2-3 of them which may also look funny.  Or I am totally reading into this too much. :)  Also, how much time did the past brides spend with the WC to go over and finalize everything?  I am only going down 2 days before the wedding date and will need time to get the OOT bags and favors ready as well as see the incoming guests.

Hey Ladies,

 

We plan to use a bose speaker for the wedding and are trying to figure out what to do for a microphone.  I was wondering what past brides did for a microphone or if they were able to go without one. 

 

Thank You,

Ashley

Ally,

 

Thank you for your response, however, I miss typed and I should have said reception instead of wedding.  I want to make sure that everyone can hear speeches and announcements during dinner.

I'm not doing bouquet toss because only 2 people are unmarrief going with us, but may do it at our at home reception. We are doing cake cutting and first dance at resort and at our at home reception.

Has anyone gotten a 2013 price sheet I only have 2012?

Thank you, Amanda! I dont think I will spring for the dance floor if there is room to dance anywya. i guess that will be a game time decision. I, as of now, do not have a 2013 price sheet...

I'm so confused!!! We are planning a wedding at EPM in October and don't know if we should do a civil or a symbolic ceremony. If we do the symbolic do we just bring our marriage license and have it signed by our witnesses at the ceremony? Will the symbolic qualify as a official marriage in the USA or would we still have to do a civil wedding in the US? It takes ages for my coordinator to reply back so any help would very much appreciated!!!!

Yea it's all very confusing, but wedding coordinator has all the specifics on what you have to have for civil. If you do symbolic it is not legal in USA, you would need to go to court house and be married to be legal. A lot of brides have done a private ceremony at the court house prior to Mexico, but not told there families and use Mexico as the anniversary date. I'll look through my emails and find what all you need tor it to be legal.

For the past brides who had a beach ceremony, did you wear a veil? I am debating and I'm so not sure. The wind is my biggest factor.

I did not have a beach wedding, but everyone does take pics on the beach. I loved the way my veil looked, BUT, it had to be tucked into the back of my dress for the ceremony even at the gazebo and most of the pics where it wasn't, I had to face the wind to keep it from being in my face. Worth it, yes but still a pain in the butt. Luckily I didn't have a low cut back dress or I would have had to take it off. The one thing you can't bank on is the weather, so whatever you decide, have a back-up plan!

    • 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.
