Hey ladies!

 

So I'm wondering what some of you are doing for wine at dinner.  I have the Paradise Package and I'm not sure if wine is included with dinner.  I know Ana sent me the wine upgrade list and the prices were ridiculous.  For the ladies that have been to the resort how would you rate the house wine?  Btw I'm not a wine connoisseur or anything, lol, but I just want make sure it doesn't taste like feet or something haha.

 

Thanks!

Well, that last post didn't come out exactly as planned lol.  This is what I meant to post:

 

Hi ladies, this is my first post, hopefully it works!

 

I am getting married at the OCT on April 12th. I'm having a tough time swallowing the 300 + 80pp day pass vendor fee that the resort charges for external photographers.. I've seen on here that some people have been able to talk Ana down, but so far she's been firm on that quote for us. Any ideas? 

 

Friends of our had their photos done by Sascha Gluck and they turned out beautifully. To anyone going with him: His work is amazing, I'm sure you'll love your photos!

 

Also, did anyone do a slideshow at their reception? If so, did you bring your own projector or does the resort have one we can use?

 

Thanks for all your help everyone!

Awesome! Congrats! I'm excited to hear the good news about Sascha because he's our photographer :-)

 

The vendor fee is brutal isn't it?  We haven't been able to budge with it either.  If it makes you feel better we were originally quoted $400 and then I saw the $380 online so we were able to change it. 
 

I'm not doing a projector, but the hotel will charge you to rent one.  I received an audio visual pricing list not too long ago and I think the projector's range from $70 - 200.  I'll look around for it and pm you.

Thanks for the feedback!  What are you doing for dinner wine?  Are you skipping it or upgrading?

My fiance and I had the house wine at the mexican restaurant I remember and it was not good.  We skipped wine at the resort altogether and ordered mixed drinks (the mojitos were exceptional).

I would upgrade the wine if that is what you think your wedding guests will opt for.  Could you PM me the Audio Visual price list?

Thanks Sandy!  With two people saying stay away I think I might just do that ;-)

 

I'll send you the list asap.

    • 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.
