How exciting! We arrive there on the 7th. So this will be a little confusing however, maybe this is you?... So My best friend/bridesmaid's boyfriend Dave is from Grand Praire...His sister Maggie said her best friend from Grand Praire is getting married there the same week we are....Is that you?? I think we have 62 adults coming and 1 child. This is really cool! i am really excited now.

 

My colours are ivory...red and gold!

 

I can not believe how fast it is coming up!

Hey Americanadia and MCRtobe,

 

My husband and I are going to be there during your weddings!  We just booked our official honeymoon for Turquesa yesterday and are there from Nov.8th-15th!  We were there a couple of years ago and loved the resort.  We saw a wedding there (I have some pictures of it, if you are interested) and that inspired us to have our wedding in Mexico, this past February.  We only stayed the 7 days with all our friends and family and wished we had stayed longer and had some solo time, hence us going back now, for our 'official honeymoon'.  cheesy.gif  I'm excited to see your weddings!  I will have a peek from a distance...of course! 

 

Feel free to ask me any questions either about the resort, or planning a destination wedding. 

 

Happy planning!

 

Jennifer

hey girls,

 

it's been a while since I logged on here but I'm so excited for all you soon-to-be brides! I got married there on 7th May 2010 and it was amazing.

 

If you have any questions, please pm me (as I'll get an alert in my email messages as I don't come on here that much now) but would love to help out if I can. 

 

For anyone looking for a photographer too, we have just been blogged by Lidya that we used, so please feel free to take a look - http://lidyasolemidt.wordpress.com/

 

Best of luck to you all :) I wish I could do it all over again!

Hi Michelle,

 

Yes, we are flying out on the 8th too!  Are they going with Air Transat?  Too funny if they are! 

 

Thanks for extending the invite to us, that's so kind of you!  I will definetly come by and introduce myself, at the very least. 

 

You will be so glad to have an extra week to yourself.  Part of you will miss having everyone and the other part will be so glad to have some alone time.  It's going to be great!  The resort is so beautiful.  I was able to upload some pictures on here, of the wedding we saw in 2008 (since this website has been revamped it's much easier to navigate!  I wasn't able to post pictures on here before). 

 

I do have more pictures of the resort, if anyone wants to see something specific, let me know.  If I have it, I will post it.  If you are having your dinner at the Villa Marina, you'll be happy!  The food is amazing there and it's really pretty. 

 

Bye for now!

 

Jennifer

Hey Nadia!

 

My goodness, I see why you are stressed! So since it is not the same Maggie...that means there will be 3 weddind there that week for sure. We are having a big wedding we are now ar 65 people total and it awesome but scary at the same time. To be honest, not sure if i have everything ready, or what i really need to get ready. I feel af the days get closer i am for sure getting more worried about waht i have forgotten to do, however, excited because i am sure it will all turn out anyway, and a little hard due to me doing most of the planning, I towork full time, however, i have no little ones. We meet with the marriage commissioner today as Daniel does not want to do the blood tests and junk in Mexico. We will be acyually married on Novemeber 6 the day before we fly out! So we are also planing that ltiile wedding here and the dinner. Where are you staying on the second week? We are staying at the Elderodo Royal.

 

I am not sure the Count down...I know that sounds still, but it makes me more worried about everything i need to get done. Haha so funny, my colours are ivory, red and a bit of chocolate brown. No we are taking no decorations with us. I am sure it will be perfect with out that. We are bring a little someting for welcome bags, however, that is about it. We were thinging abouth doing a candy bar...but not sure yet...that just make for more work and planning, and packing. I believe we are having the menu two...beef wellington. you? Well we were planning to have it on the terasse, however, I want to make sure because it is outside we will not be charge the $27 per person charge for a out door reception, so since Ana still take a lifetime to reply to your emails, we are not sure what we will be doing. I know i sound a little grumpy about that and it is because I am. My dress is strapless and more of a full bottom without the stuff making it big...I am not sure if i am in love with my dress anymore and it it way too late now to do anything about it. I am trying to look at it and tell myself i like it! I guess you will see it when i see you there, What does yours look like? it is pretty exciting!!!Yay!

 

I too am excited to meet you both. Hope all your planning goes well!:)

 

Michelle

    • 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.
