That would be nice to know. I am sure my hunny will get his cut right before we leave but our wedding is 4 days later and he will have a major 5'oclock shadow! lol

good luck and happy planning!!!

Just wondering if anyone could tell me the capacities of the various places to get married at the Beach resort.  I am considering not having it on the beach and making it on the terrace.  For the life of me, I cannot find that information in my e-mails.  Any help would be fantastic!

I did not see a barber anywhere.  My husband is very particular about this.  He started practiving his shape up months before the wedding.  He got a cup the evening before we left and he was fine the day of the ceremony 4 days later with his own shape-up.

Thanks so much for your feedback!  I am so glad to hear Nicole doesn't rush you when it comes to pictures. 

 

Did anyone else have their hair done with you?  I guess I am just wondering if there are 5 updos that need to happen plus makeup for all, are there 2 or 3 stylists doing back-to-back appointments or will all 5 to be done all at the same time.  I'd like everyone's hair and make-up done by 3:00pm, so there is time for lots and lots of pictures and wiggle room for running late... wink.gif

 

Any other past experiences with getting ready and how you timed it would be greatly appreciated?

Marcia Roberts got to my room around 3:30 and by the time she got all her pics done I was 5 minutes late... LOL .. Marcia was scheduled to get to my room at 3:00 but I hadnt anticipated my MOH being as slow as she was getting ready.. She was a real prima dona and slooow and did not want Marcia to take pics of her doing my make-up until she was absolutely ready..  Marcia takes aloooot of pictures but Nicole also told her to take her time because the wedding day is about capturing the moments not about sticking to a vigorous schedule...

Thanks for your response.  I did contact the WC at the Suites and she placed me on the wait list for the date we want.  Our wedding is already booked at the Beach so at least we got something.  I was very surprised to find every weekend in July AND August already booked at the Suites, however, it's still a long way away and I'm still holding out hope that our date will open up.  the one thing FI and I really want is a Saturday wedding since most of our guests have to leave Sunday and can't guarantee coming in earlier than Friday.

NOTE - Sorry for the double post but I wasn't sure how to include quotes until now.

I am a July 2012 suites bride.  That is crazy that every weekend is booked already.  I would suggest following up with Nicole to see if she keeps a wait list.  With it being a year out, you never know what might happen and dates might open up.  Are you flexible with switching to a weekday?  A Friday or Monday might be open and still give your guests an opportunity to just make a long weekend of it if time and cost are an issue.

Hi ladies!  I have a question about incentives.  What incentives does the Iberostar offer to the bride and groom and how many rooms do you have to book in order to get those incentives?  I've read some couples have gotten free cocktail hours, extended reception time, upgraded/free rooms.

jamaicasukie, i'm an iberostar beach bride and i can't tell you enough how i didn't see any real difference between each property...i had a scouting visit last fall. 

 

its best to keep an open mind..if you end up at the beach your day will be just as beautiful...also, the beach property tends to be more cost efficient for traveling guests.  there were a few brides who booked the suites then hopped over to the beach because of price AND the beach property has a very nice beach site for your wedding..if you choose to have the ceremony beachside.  its also closest to the beach gazebo..if you're having a small ceremony, it'll fit between 12-15 guests.

 

i'm sure it'll all work out for the best!

 

until next time, happy planning!!!

Has anyone heard of couples serving their own booze? For example I'd like to have the bonfire on the beach for our reception however we can only fit the open bar for 1 hour into the budget. If we set up a table with a couple bottles of rum and coke and some wine does anyone know if the resort will permit this? Or would it just be easier to tip the bartender really well in hopes that he'll stick around for another hour, lol?

    • 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.
