I don't, actually, now that you mention it! I was hoping to get it from my travel agent or Melissa.

Does anyone else have her email?

Just giving this thread a bump before it falls off of the page!

 

So, MLD brides, where are you in your planning? I've just about finished- just waiting for my mugs and favours to arrive and I have a few small DIY things to finish (like programs) a bit closer to the time. Is anyone bringing any decorations like table settings, or are you just going with what's there (like me)?

 

Has anyone been dealing with Melissa at all? I sent her an email with a few questions a week or two ago and she did (sort of) answer them but basically told me to email her about a month before the wedding to wrap some things up. She also told me that the location for the reception is decided once we're down there- which is a bummer because I'd like to know ahead of time if we'll have a private dinner or be in a restaurant. I get the feeling she's a bit useless- hope I'm wrong about that but I guess it doesn't really matter as long as the on site coordinator is good.

I don't have a picture of my mugs yet because they're still being shipped but I got them from discountmugs. At first I was going to go with 4imprint because I figured I'd save on duty if I got them in Canada, but those guys were terrible to deal with. I don't recommend them at all! I'd select a mug from their website and then get an email a few days later saying that that style was out of stock. I went through this four times with them (I even tried ordering a style they recommended and it still happened) so I ended up canceling my order. Discount mugs was a lot easier to deal with and the mugs and shipping worked out to be a lot cheaper, too. I'll post up a picture of them once I get them- should be in a few weeks at the most (I didn't pay for fast shipping). A lot of girls from here have gotten mugs from there and liked them so I figured it was probably a pretty safe bet.

I heard that too- that you can rent a conference room or something and have a DJ for a reception after the dinner. I don't think I have enough people to bother doing this, myself- I'll probably just stick with the ipod dock/ speakers. How about you guys- are you thinking about having a reception?

Hey ladies,

Meli - are you bringing your own ipod dock? I have one, it's not super loud but it might suffice, hope that there is somewhere to plug it in in the pool snack bar.

I am debating renting the conference room, I am leaning towards no - mainly b/c I don't think enough ppl are going to want to dance super late, I have a big mixture of older/younger people - so at most we might have 15 or so younger people who want to stay there late, I just think it would be kind of silly to have a huge conference room (undecortated) so that 15 of us could hang out there....I think we will try to go to the lobby bar/disco. I have heard you can bring CDs that they will play for you at dinner, I like the idea of an ipod though...let us know how it works for you Meli! Maybe the DJ will play my CDs :)

 

PS - someone on the facebook group sent an email for Marie Elena (the WC), I haven't heard a response yet, let me know if you guys want it.

We've just bought an ipod dock to bring, so I hope they'll be able to plug it in (with a converter, of course). We'll bring some CD's as a backup, too.

Yeah, if you don't mind PM that email address. I may try to get in touch with her closer to the time and see about making spa reservations and if we'll have the poolside restaurant for dinner for sure. Melissa just brushed me off when I asked if we could find out sooner, but I'm sure that I've heard of other girls being told where their dinner would be ahead of time.

    • 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.
