Recommended Posts

@ Nessa0308, Yes my sister's wedding will be Eva's first LC wedding. She is getting married in Oct. We were nervous because she had not shoot a wedding there before, but we asked Kelley and she said she heard good things about her. Kelley mentioned that one of the best PV photogs actually referes clients to Eva if she is booked. We thought that had to be a good sign lol!!!

Yes, that is exactly what they are! and yep! I did send her an idea of what I wanted. It didnt turn out EXACTLY like the picture I sent her.. but that is because she had a much better idea! She is VERY good at that. She got me these GREAT cream colored calla lillies with a purple center. SO COOL! I didnt think to add callas before but I am glad I did!!

Well I dont know if they are cheaper because I never looked into fake flowers. I wanted real ones, and I didnt want the hassel of having MORE stuff to bring.. but I thought that the price was really reasonable.. even with the "upggrade" I got.. and they turned out GREAT! They lasted the WHOLE night.. and I took then back with me and ended wearing one of the flowers in my hair each night.. I loved doing that because I felt like the flowers didnt go to waste that way.. they lasted the rest of the week.

Kat- the real touch flowers are super expense!!!! I also wanted to be able to keep them but I dont really care anymore. I sent a bunch of the girls pics to kelley that I liked. Im sure she will laugh when she sees that she did them!

I had to look at the pic to remember how many were at what table..

 

it looks like me like we had 6 per table. They were at an angle and there were 3 on each side of our sweetheart table. As far as I know you can skip having the sweetheart table and have another table of 6 (or possibly cool.gif there if you dont like you and your husband not sitting my yourselves.

 

she sent me a chart of how many can go at what table and where they are.. let me see if I can find it

Hi

 

 I started an old post elsewhere, but as I can see ,there's a TON more info here!!  So the wedding is to be sometime early Nov 2011 at LC . It's going to be a small wedding (10-20 pp) still in the early planning. I have lots of questions re: budget, photographers, flowers, and where to stay. I have been to PV once and stayed at the Buenaventura for a week and fell in love with PV. So the first question is. How much are people usually spending on the weddings. my fi and i will be paying for it ourselves... and wel.....l would like to have a number to work with??  Pls help!! Thanks everyone

Welcome girls!  Congrats!  You will love Las Caletas!

 

Katherine- search for budgets.  We have many threads with budgets and I know brides have uploading their spreadsheets that itemizes costs.  That should give you a better start to figure out what type of budget you are looking at.  I think my total budget was around $14k- which I included my 2 week honeymoon stay, LC total cost for 20 people, wedding dress, welcome dinner, photography, groom attire, etc.  However, this number is totally subjective because everyone has different priorities.  I think my LC total was $6-7k.  I can't remember.

What Rachel said is about exactly what I have to say. My wedding for 32 people was close to $8000 and the total spent on everything including our week at Dreams PV, dress, gifts and everything was around $12,000 which also included out wedding bands and all that.

    • 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.
