Above is a link to our photo slideshow from our 1/15/11 wedding and TTD session. We hired Anel from Adventure Photographers and bought the unlimited package. She did an amazing job, and is truly a pleasure to work with. I am really pleased with how they turned out, and am so glad we decided to use her rather than hire an outside vendor and pay 5 times as much. Really recommend working with her!!!!

 

We also had DJ Doremixx who brought the balloons, cold fireworks, and masks to the reception party. It was an amazing time!

 

I will be selling my chair sashes (60) and table runners (8) if anyone is interested....please PM me. My new hubby is dying for me turn to our "wedding headquarters" back into an office!

 

Your photos are amazing! I have the exact same colors and totally want the same setup! (sashes to the side, white table linen) I'm glad I got to see what it will look like! Thank You! You are a beautiful bride!

Question: Where did you order your sashes & what color did they call them? I would offer to buy yours...but I will only need around 30-40. And how did you get DJ Doremixx? I thought he was no longer available? Thank YOU!

SARCROOK:

 

I should clarify...We didn't buy a package, so it could be included.  But the cost had something to do with having to hire on additional staff so that they would still have enough staff at the front desk during your check-in.

Kate, your wedding was amazing! Great pics- it seems the resort photographer does a really great job- I agree, some of the outside photographers are waaay more expensive, but your pictures came out gorgeous. I love your colors too, the aqua and orange look really pretty together!

Hi Isd203, I haven't really looked into it myself too much, since my fiance is dead set on a dj, but I hear the band Balance is really good. Here's their website http://www.balancelabanda.com/. No idea what their prices are, but I'm guessing quite a bit more expensive than a dj (though I could be wrong). Hope this helps!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
