The WC coordinated all of that and it was included in the price of the band/bonfire (band was $563 for 1.5hrs and bonfire was $504 for 1.5hr the bar was $15pp for 1.5hrs) They took it on themselves to set up all of the extras---stage, lights, disco ball, cocktail tables, chairs,etc.. I think they did all of this for me b/c I was very nice to them and really communicated to them and was organized, which made their job easier. The more you have planned out, the better your wedding will be, becasue then they have the time to work out the extras!!

Some of the brides that got married during my stay, did not have a wedding that went nearly as smoothly, because they did not have the detailed planning etc.. that us girls from this forum have. We saw two really bad weddings one at the Suites and one at the Grand, but my WC said those girls did not have anything planned and had not communicated with them at all before their arrivals.
Wow! That is fantastic! I'm so glad to hear that the WC's are so helpful and accommodating. I hope my experience is as great as yours. I will definitely be super organized and communicate with them a lot. I have to hold myself back from harassing them, I dunno how those brides did not even talk to theirs before showing up!! eek.gif

How was your cake? You said the resort did it?

As for the fans, I got them from Oriental Trading (it was the cheapest) and they were all suppose to be medium but they were all TOTALLY different sizes. I mean super small and then large. So, I had the WCs set it up as every other row large and then small, so each row had the same size. My friend is holding up one of the small ones.
Thanks Leslie!!! I was also thinking of ordering from Oriental Trading, but maybe I'll just order all the small ones from another vendor, they look like the size I was hoping for! My email is jerimarine@hotmail.com , Thanks in advance for the Template!!! Really appreciate your help and Congrats again on a beautiful wedding:)

Yes, the WCs set that up for me. They had 4 of the tall lights coverd in sheets in different colors. Then they roped off a huge dance floor area with rope lights. It look amazing but you can't really see how great it looked in the pics.
That is so helpful to know that they can do that! One less thing for me to worry about now :)

Leslie, Thank you for writing such a detailed review. It was awesome! I am totally stealing your menu headings too: First Date,Courtship, Marriage, & Honeymoon! LOVE it!

 

You looked great and so happy that everything went off without a hitch. Good tip though on being super organized b/d you saw other less successful weddings. I need a reminder to stay on track.

 

Who was your Travel Agent you gave a D- to? Just curious since mine is in MD too.

 

Cheers

Amy

    • 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.
