Hey Ladies

My wedding is next week already! I am going over final details with Ana, and this happen to come up (never mentioned before today!) Just wanted to see if everyone was paying the same as I will be....

 

She just let me know with my paradise package, the reception is only three hours long. And every hour after that is 10$ per guest/ per hour...

So I have 54 guests... so thats 540$ per hour after three hours!?  Is this right ?? and 40$ per waiter per hour!

Please let me know what you guys are paying, like I said this was not mentioned until just now!

Thanks so much for your help!!

I guess what I need to know is, by "reception" does she mean only dinner/ service OR does she mean dinner/service/dance (the entire wedding reception)

I am about to book a block of rooms for my guests.  Could any of you give me any advice on which side would be better to book?  Some of my guests have said they do not want to be around kids, and I know that the Maya side is adults only.  Is the Ocean Coral side louder, more kids etc?  How much of a noticeable difference is there? 

 

We might block some rooms on both sides, but we are having a hard time deciding since some of our close family is bringing kids.  We don't want some of our parents, grandparents to have to walk across the whole resort though.  Anyone have this same dilemma?  

 

Thanks!

@Archily-  The resort has two sides. The Ocean Coral and the Ocean Turquesa side.  Ocean Maya Royal Resort is their sister resort; an entirely different resort (the adults only resort) is located about 10-15 minutes away by shuttle. We are staying there for our honeymoon. :-)   I would recommend the Ocean Coral side if you are looking to stay away from children.  The Ocean Coral side is quieter. It has the quieter pools and is void of children.  The Ocean Turquesa side has the Teen and Daisy club and kiddie pool is located there. I hope this helps. :-)

Three hours for the reception is from start to finish (start at 7pm and it's over at 10pm).  Be bought one extra hour ($10/guest) and then headed down to the pool bar where there was a live band (soooo awesome)!  That being said that is the ONE thing I would change - buy more time at the reception (at least a total of 2 extra hours)....just my thoughts.  Dinner was served very quickly (and was fantastic), but with speeches and 3 courses the time just flies!

@Ims26, your pricing sounds right to me.  We're doing our reception from 7pm - 12am and are paying for 2 hours extra.  I haven't heard about the $40/waiter/hour.  I think once you are past the 3 hour mark (i.e. what's included in the package) you won't really need an waiter because dinner has already been served.  The extra cost $10/person/hour is mostly for the bar.  Good luck with everything!

@ JBandDJ- Congrats!!!!!  You are an official OCT bride!!!!!  How was it!??? Tell us everything!  Did you the makeup and hair with the Spa? So many questions!!!!  

Thanks for the advice on the extra hours !  My fiance and I have been going back and forth on whether or not we should do an extra hour of reception. I think my fiance and I might opt for one extra hour just because we are doing a cocktail hour before our reception.

    • 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.
