Thanks for the list Ann!
getting married on a sunday kicks ass - LC was totally ours the whole day, it was awesome.

Kelley had those shells that were hanging... check with her she might still have them. I think that Rachel actually left those there from her wedding :)

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa. My fiance, Mark, and I are getting married on Las Caletas November 21, 2010. We are super excited! Our friends and families are staying at dreams puerto vallarta. Mark and I have stayed there before and we loved it! Im glad I found this forum because I will need recommendations for many things...photographer, hair stylist, bands, etc.

OMG! I just received an email from Nicole..She is leaving so now Kelley will be my coordinator..I wish her the best but I really liked working with her.she said she is doing one other wedding in December and thats it. If I was 30 days or so out I think I might have freaked out a little switching coordinators at the last minute but I still have until march so no big deal. I heard all wonderful things about Kelley as well.

Hi Ladies, I just wanted to get on here and say thank you, thank you, thank you!! I have been searching this website since I got engaged two months ago looking for THE PLACE. Well, thanks to your reviews of LC I really think I have found it. I am so excited! And best of all, when I showed FI the pics of LC he got excited too. Now to just decide on the date. Right now we are leaning towards Feb 2011 - we are starting to build a house this April so have a busy year ahead. But wow! that seems like a long time to wait... Thanks for all the ideas and discussion - keep it up so I can keep dreaming of my perfect day!

Aww I am glad you found the forum! I too found LC completely through the forum. I fell in love with it right away too and just had to convince my hubby that it was right.

Any questions or anything just ask! Really though, planning a LC wedding is EASY! happy planning!

How far in advance did everyone start looking into details for the ceremony? Im 11 months out right now. What should I start with? Im thinking the photographer. Also, does anyone know if I will still be able to go out early the morning of the ceremony if its on a Sunday? I dont think they run day trips on sundays. Thanks! Melissa

Well I booked my day 1 year in advance.

Just sent Kelley an e-mail letting her know we are 2.5 months out and she sent me a questioneer so we can start planning the details.

Questions like:

Where is everyone staying

final head count

color scheme

music choices,

flowers,

cake,

wedding vows etc.

 

So now the fun begins.

Lets start with Music;

I was thinking of just bringing my Ipod. I started catogorizing songs we like into, Before wedding, during wedding march, right after, and reception(First dance etc.). Does anyone know how the DJ works? does he use your ipod or do you need CD's. Does he have his own music, whats the approx. cost involved. Anyone hire live musicians? what is the cost for that.

Any insight is much appreciated.

Michele

we didn't work out ceremony details with Brad (the minister) until probably 2 weeks before the wedding. there really is no need to do all that so far in advance with him although it would be a good idea between now and then to start finding any special readings, ceremony's etc that you might want to incorporate into your ceremony and set those aside. that way when the time does come to work with the LC minister you are ready and can just pass your ideas right along.

    • 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.
