I am so glad I am not the only one!! Chandlyn hasn't gotten back to me on much either!! We are getting married at 1:00 on February 7 '07. I think it will give the guests time to get a drink and some lunch in between. No different then having a wedding here. Usually you have that couple hours in between the ceremony and reception. Wow 80 guests that is alot of people. I can't wait for the menus!!

I'm not sure about the Plantation... we have a small group, so we're just doing the semi-private dinner & renting out the disco afterwards.

I haven't booked the reception yet b/c Chandlyn has not gotten back to me. I emailed her a few weeks back and she said they don't plan weddings til 2 months beforehand!!! Then I wrote back a few days ago asking if I could at least reserve a reception venue and haven't heard anything yet. Any ideashuh.gif??
Hmmm... my ceremony will be at 4, so there's really not any time in between. Maybe you can just hang out at the bars. I don't think you'd have enough time for TOO much. Hmmm, I'll think about this! rolleyes.gif Oh, and there is no option for a semi-private luncheon or anything like that - just dinner.

My welcome bags are probably going to have much of the same - definitely the cups, since Riu has little cups!

I can't seem to paste the pictures of the restaurant's wedding reception set-up, so let me know your email addresses if you want me to send them to you!

If you host the images on another site (like photobucket.com), the pictures will show up here.

Oh, and thanks for the menu info!

    • 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.
