I feel like the gazebo looks a bit like something you'd see in sci-fi spacey stuff. Can't wait to see pics from all the brides getting married there now/soon. I have plenty of time to decide on a resort, but would love to just pick one ASAP. Hoping the on beach arch (or however they will do it) looks a little less... futuristic?

Has anyone decided on a package yet? I don't know what to do about them. I am leaning towards the free package and customizing what I need but I am worried that the cost will add up VERY quickly. I do not want to select a package because there is so much I do not need that comes with it (hairstyling, photography, toasting flutes....). I asked Ana if they can substitute items and she said they could not. The only substitution that would be allowed is getting rid of the cocktail hour and adding additional people to the dinner. What are the rest of you doinghuh.gif If you already received a quote could you share what is included in it? Thanks!!!

Rose13-

I actaully met with Ana earlier this week- what she told me was that if you had more than 20 people, the prices were $26 for the cocktail hour and then $46 for the dinner, so basically $72 per person over the 20.

 

We decided to go with Dreams, right now I am just waiting for a confirmation for my date!

I almost forgot- for the extra person- don't forget the 25% % 10% (grat & taxes I believe) so the grand total after all that is about $92.00 per person after the 20.

I am getting married this November 2nd and decided to do the free package but will have to pay $799 since I didn't book an Ocean Front room or higher. It's a small wedding on the beach and since we aren't doing any extra dinners, they said that they would make reservations (even though they don't take reservations) for us at one of the restaurants we pick to make sure we can get seated all together and that would be our wedding dinner. No extra costs since we are eating at one of the included restaurants. By far, it's the cheapest for us. We also got married at city hall in Chicago this past September so that we don't have to go through all the legal stuff and blood work there. Our guests won't know the difference since the ceremony is exactly the same, just not legal.

About how many people will be in your wedding. I am asking because I too would like to do the free package and hopefully get dinner reservations. I just would like to know how large of a party they will do that for. Thanks!

Did you see any of the places to have the reception. Where were they and what was nice?? How about the beach ceremony...did you see where that would be set-up?

I am having the same problem. I don't need photography or hairstyling either...I had asked about substitutions she said that we could probably get more video instead of photographer if we went with most expensive package. Did she say how many extra people you could get for dinner instead of the cocktail hour? I worked out all the prices on paper...I am thinking that we will probably have about 40 people and it was way more expensive to get everything individually. I think that I will probably end up with one of the packages but I am not sure which though.

    • 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.
