Hey I just emailed u. So did u use the resort photography/videography? Hair? Makeup? Did u get married on the beach? Ours is beach ceremony then private reception on terrace....just looking to get more information...

Got your email. I did not use the hotel photographer or videographer. We used Samuel Luna for pictures...he is AMAZING, I mean, just awesome and def worth having an outside vendor for photography. We didn't get our video back yet, but I'm looking forward to that. We got married on the beach in front of building 1-- this is important, because the other area reserved for weddings is not private. You are basically walking down in the middle of beach chairs, it's not ideal, in my opinion. Building one was very private. We did the reception on the lobby terrace- it was gorgeous, but had to move inside half way through because it started to rain a bit, but that was totally fine!  I wil email you pictures of the terrace and the beach area. We also rented gold tiffany chairs in place of the white ones that are included...I'll send it all over to you today! And yes, did hair and makeup at the salon and LOVED it.

Hello Brides!!

I was wondering if anyone dealt with the spa on their vacation, especially with doing group bookings? I was thinking of getting all of my bridesmaids a gift certificate there for a spa day probably the day before the wedding...Not sure if they are overly priced, or I could possibly get a deal if I book my 5 bridesmaids and me??

 

Thanks!

Ladies, I haven't been on here in awhile, but wanted to report back after our FABULOUS wedding at OCT on May 23, 2014.  Our wedding coordinator, Daniel, was absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!  I will never be able to say enough good things about him or the entrie wedding staff.  I will admit, we got off to a bit of a rocky start only because it seemed like I had a new coordinator every month (apparently, they have high turnover), but once Daniel was assigned to us, it was easy breezy!!!

 

We arrived the morning of Wednesday, 21 May.  Check in was a breeze, and we were immediately introduced to Daniel and informed of our appointment that afternoon for our walk-thru.  We choose to do our ceremony and reception on the Lobby Terrace because my 84-year-old grandmother would not have been able to get up the stairs to the rooftop terrace.  I was a little worried about other resort guests hovering, but if they were, we did not even notice!!  Daniel sat with us for 2.5 hours going through every single detail of the wedding and walking through the space to discuss set-up options.  It was definitely a team effort between the 3 of us!!!

 

My fiance and I decided on orange and pink as our colors so they would pop off the gorgeous blue ocean.  We had a very large wedding (105 guests - to date, the largest wedding OCT has ever done).  We decided to take all our own linens with us because the resort did not have enough and would have had to rent them.  We were quoted about $1800 for the linens (napkins, orange runners, and chair sashes), but I ended up finding linens for around $200 and chair sashes for like $96 and some change.  We decided it was well worth packing them down there to save that kind of cash and had NO problem donating them to the resort when we left (what were we going to do with them??).  I printed all of our programs, escort cards, and table numbers which we hauled down there as well along with our wedding favors (beverage koozies... easy for us and our guests to travel with).  Daniel and the team took great care in setting everything out just as we'd discussed.

 

For anyone having doubts about OCT... don't.  Every single one of our guests has said on multiple occasions that it was THE best wedding they have ever been to, and I fully believe part of that is due to Daniel and his ability to flawlessly execute each brides vision!!!!!

 

****** We brought in our own DJ, photographer, and makeup/hair, all of whom are friends that would have been invited anyway.  We did not have to pay an outside vendor fee because of this.

Congrats!! Im so amazed by the number of people that made it to your big day!! Our deposits are due by aug 20 so were just starting to find out who of the people we invited are not going to be able to make it down, a bit disappointing but oh well!!

 

Unfortunately i don't have enough posts on here to be able to open your pictues and the website wants me to pay 30USD to do so…crazy!! wondering if you mind emailing them to me??  jewellba@@gmail.com

 

Thanks and congrats again…hope you're enjoying the married life!!

    • 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.
