Mel's Dreams Cancun Wedding Review 8.13.09

Recommended Posts

Congratulations, you look beautiful! Can I ask you noted you gave in your chair bows? Did you bring them with you then? Did you bring extras (more then your amount of guests) and did they move them from the gazebo to your ceremony location for you?

 

Sorry for all the questions just trying to get my budget straight!

Thanks and congratulations once again,

Tori

I also included:

Thatâ€s all I can think of right now, but if I remember more, I will let you know! I think thatâ€s it actually!

Thank you! :) I still want to go back and do it all again!
I got the chairbows search wedding linens direct. they were so cheap! I brought them with me and actually had extra bows. They came in packs of 10 so I had 20 down there. We only had 14 guests so we had some extras. Cecilia took it upon herself to take the extras and put them around the gazebo and also tie them on the posts during the reception. She also did move them from the gazebo to the ceremony location! It was perfectly done!

Hi Carolina!
We just used theirs. We kept everything very easy and simple. :) I believe that I have read on this site that you can ask them for samples of different scripts they can use- they can email them to you? I never asked for it but you can always give it a shot!

yeah, I've written ours and really want to use them, but I don't know how it would go. I'm a little nervous b/c that's a complaint I've seen on the forum (you can't understand the person or they don't read English very well). We have family coming from three different countries and I really want them, and us, to understand the vows. Also, do they have you sign the certificate even if it was a symbolic wedding? We're getting married here first.

Thanks for all the help!!

If you want to have your own and are worried about the reading, I would maybe ask your WC for someone who is proficient in English? Yes, you sign a certificate during the symbolic ceremony after the sand ceremony but the certificate is just more of a suvenior (SPelling?) - we got married at home first too.

    • 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.
