ughhhhh looks like ernesto is coming just in time for the wedding on tuesday night :'(
We are here now and they are saying it will be a storm watch. I will be writing a review soon, prob after I get home, but we had bad wind at our reception and asked to be moved in the middle of the 2nd course. They moved us to thes seaside grill in a flash. I was bummed for a minute but then realized it was better for our guests and we had already gotten the dances and everything our of the way

Hey Ladies, I leave in 5 days and I am just wondering how did everyone pay for their wedding? Should we get travelers checks? Did you just charge it? Also my wedding coordinator has not answered my emails in weeks so I am really going down there without knowing much details about the big day! its so frustrating!
We ended up using a debit card. We had our mtg with Lorena and paid for half that day and half the next day. I had poor communication the week before my wedding too, but I just kept myself organized with lots of spreadsheet and printed out every single thing I could (copy of wedding package, homeymoon package, emails, etc)and brought it with me. Just like everyone says, you are in good hands and they go over every detail with you when you arrive :)

Hey ladies, We are still here honeymooning, so when I get back to CA, I will write out something about our trip for sure. Long story short, everything was and is great. Our guests are thanking US for doing this. One snafoo-We did have ridiculous wind during our reception. They sky turned black. The staff assured us it wouldn't rain, but I looked around army guests and half of them had their sunglasses on because the sand was everywhere-in their eyes and food. We felt bad and couldnt bear to have our guests sit there like that, esp our older guests So we asked Jorge (Lorena's helper) what we could do. They moved ius to the Seasode Grill within minutes. So don't panic, they always have a back up plan ready for you. Whether it is what you envisioned or not, it will be top notch.

 Beautiful wedding!! I'm also having my reception at the Seaside Grill, any recommendations? Also do you know what size the tables are? Thanks! Ashley

If it is an extraordinarily hot day, I'd move the reception to the pool deck.  The Seaside Grill was beautiful but there was NO BREEZE that day at all!  People were soaked with sweat haha.  We all just kind of resigned ourselves to it and had a blast anyway.  But no recommendations, they will make everything perfect!!  I don't know the table sizes because I didn't bring linens, but we had tables of 6.

I am waiting for my wedding high light video from Mike Cantarell Films!  I am so so so excited to see it!!  My dad said to him, "I've seen your work, it's fabulous!" and he said "This will be the best one yet."  I am waiting and trying to hold myself over with photos!  I wish I could go back to that day because it seriously was the best day of my life!!

Hello ladies!

 

I'm curious... How many Save the Dates/Invitations dd you all send out? And how many of your guests actually booked and/or attended your wedding? My goal was to have a small intimate wedding but my mother is forcing me to send out STDs all of the "family". My guest list is now over 100 but I would really like to have no more than 50 people at our wedding. I 'm getting really nervous now. Is it bad to hope that not all of my guests will actually attend???

    • 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?
