Of all the websites I searched I didn't see any of them specify different sizes of chair sashes to order.  I would guess that there is a standard size and would just go with that and I'm sure you can't go wrong because they will put it on the chair in a way that looks great.

 

I have decided to go with actual table cloths of overlays as opposed to the runner but that is just a personal preference.  I was having the hardest time deciding how to set-up the tables, to use a colored tablecloth, or do an overlay or both or just a runner.  I actually found a great site online, BBJ Linen that has a feature where you can design table settings.  This gives you the ability to see how things will look based on your colors. 

 

Hope this helps.

Also, are you guys using table runners or table overlays--I am thinking of using the table runners...what do you think?

Also did anyone receive a detailed info package that describes how much everything costs like table runners, decor etc?  Sorry if it has already been posted or asked.

Hi Sophie!!  That's so cool that you're getting married on the 26th!  When do you arrive?  We're leaving the 24th, so hopefully we'll have a chance to meet!  Don't stress too much over Yamina.  She is very nice in person [i met her when I went for my site visit] and she is very organized.  She responds best if you number your questions in your emails...and try to refrain from emailing her multiple times before she replies, I find she misses questions that way.

 

We went down and video taped our tour.  If you missed it, check it out here:

Also, I forgot to comment on the hurricane season thing.  Kevin and I chose July while we were down there in June because it happened to rain a lot on our particular trip.  We originally wanted August but asked our tour guide the summer months that are least rainy and he said July.  You can also google frequency of rain in Cancun and you'll see it rains an average of 4 days in July or something low like that.  I live at the Jersey shore and it's not any rainier there than here in July!

Hmm after reading a couple of the recent posts I'm starting to worry. My wedding coordinator that I was set up with was Ana Garcia. I have not had much contact with her but reading that there is no mention of her as a wedding coordinator and only Yamina or Evangelina, it makes me think that maybe she does not work there anymore? Could anyone let me know because I have sent an email to her and have not any replies. And if she doesn't work there anymore why was I not informed of this !!!

    • 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?
