I did my own makeup and my MOH is a hairstylist, so she did my hair. I thought it was pretty simple for her, she did too. She just curled my hair with a 1" curling iron and then individually pinned pieces up.

great review!!!!!!!! i got engaged on cabo and stayed in this hotel....do u mind me asking what kind of fabric and how long it was that u used for the chairs and the chulapa? also how much did it all come to and how much was it to rent the disco?
I used 6" organza tulle for the chairs, I am not sure how long it was, I did not do a bow, so you would need more length for that, I think the standard length for chair bows is 109". Because there was no where to purchase the color of tulle that I wanted I just purchased a bolt online and brought all of the fabric, so I am not sure how much they used on chuppah, the wedding coordinator used the extra fabric to decorate for our dinner.
It was $500 for the disco and that included drinks, dj, and bartender

Congratulations! Your wedding looked beautiful. I'm currently considering either the Santa Fe or the Palace. Can I ask why you decided on the Santa Fe instead of the Palace?

    • 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.
