Just Married...Wedding Review!

Recommended Posts

Hi Juniorbaby01,

1st off, congrats! your wedding looks like it was amazing!! and you looked so beautiful! i'm so glad i found this review - it's a wealth of information! we're getting married at the RIU in August and i have a couple of follow up questions for you.


1. do you have the general manager's contact information? i'd love to get in contact with him. i've been trying for months to get the WC to waive the day pass for a makeup artist i would liek to hire and she immediately told me no. although i have heard of other brides getting waived. i just think it's a little ridiculous of them wanting to charge a day pass for someone who is not consuming anything at all!


2. how did you manage to maek reservations for all your guests ahead of time to visit the restaurants? i really would love to do that for my guests.


3. i see that you held your rehearsal dinner at Sir Andrews. did they charge you extra for this? i asked to have a rehearsal dinner done the night before the wedding (more like a welcome dinner) and again the WC said she was unable to do that because there were other people in the hotel and she could not maek a reservation for that large of a group. i don't even care if it's semi-private. i'm having about 50 guests too. i tried asking about a cocktail reception and they want to charge me $1,500 for just an hour and that only includes liqour and appetizers - not even food!


4. can i please have the makeup artist's contact information? she did a great job and i would love to check out her prices.


i appreciate any information you can give me. i'm pretty close to my date so i would love to work all this out! i hope you can help me!! smile03.gif


thanks again!

    • 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.
