Alison -- AWESOME post, your wedding looked beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

So Marvin charged you $35/bouquet for your bridesmaids bouquets? It looks like they were pink roses and green orchids, is that right? He's quoting me $65/bouquet for all green orchids...

 

What do you guys think of this... so we're doing an indian wedding, and I have a lime green and turquoise sari for the wedding and my bridesmaids are in lime green and eggplant purple saris

 

So -- I'm leaning towards an ALL white bouquet for myself (most likely white roses and white lillies --  which looks like it could be the complimentary one from MP). Then, if I get white roses and green orchids from Marvin (at $35/bouquet) -- do you guys think that would look good?

 

I think $65/bouquet for an all green orchid bouquet is still more expensive than what I'd want to pay, esp because they'll just go to waste after the wedding...

 

Thoughts??

Thanks Alison! I forgot to mention you looked absolutely beautiful in your pics! Thanks for helping us girls out! I am 27 days out till I leave so I am wrapping things up. I can't wait to come back and help the rest of you girls..

 

OMG, Father Aguilar! LOL I am doing 2 readings and a responsial psalm and the unity candle. I hope he's fast. I am meeting him a few days before my wedding. No lazo ceremony. Thanks for letting me know about the vents. I actually have alot of guest. 90 total so we'll just barely fit. I might make my wedding party stand the whole time is that mean. There are 8 pairs!

 

I am doing the draping in the chapel and doing some draping on the pews with roses and rose petals. I did order rose petals from Marvin bc I didn't want to bring freeze dried petals. As for centerpieces I am getting them from deco. I might get the flowers for the alter, haven't decided yet but I'll get it from the resort.

We did not do any Lazo ceremony or unity candles.  It seemed like forever to me b/c I was so nervous and a bit warm.  His sermon was a bit crazy and everyone still talks about it.  "Marriage is like you are falling off a cliff blindfolded and then splat."

 

One other thing about the Catholic Chapel, it is air conditioned which is nice, however, some of our guests were sitting at the end of the pew where you are directly under the vent.  Those people the air blew direct over them and they were sweating to death.  Others were directly in the vent path and were freezing.  So it's sort of a mix in there with the air.  So if you have room, you might want to let ushers or guests know to not sit under the air conditioning unit at the end of the pew.  We actually stopped in to view the chapel a couple of days before our wedding and the air was not on, wow.  It was horrible in there. 

 

Also in regards to flowers, if anyone is getting table arrangements for the chapel or reception.  At the end of the reception they asked us what to do with them and I had not even thought of it so I had them thrown out I think.  But what I should have done, had I been thinking, was that our parents were both saying a couple days after and had the flowers sent to their rooms to enjoy until they left rather than throw them out.

I think the prices of the flowers depends on the time of the year too. $65 is pricey but it is green orchids. I am getting my bm bouquets for $35 and my all white bouquet is $115.

 

BTW, I saw an awesome idea from another bride. So she ordered these boxes from http://blumebox.com/8-inch-blumebox.shtml and she is taking her bm bouquets and doubling them as centerpieces for the reception. I wish I had thought f that b/c I would have saved so much money! Maybe someone else could use this idea.

I am going to take the complimentary bouquet from MP but use it as a toss bouquet. I decided to go with marvin b/c I wanted them to be more consistent with my other flowers.

 

In my bouquet, I have ivory roses, white asian lillies, white calla lillies, white ranuculus and green hydrangea . .ok I lied I have some green but its really light so it blends in well.


For my BM bouques, fuischa and orange roses, green mums, fuischa and orange gerber daisies.

 

My MOH bouquet is different and bigger fuischa and orange roses, green mums, fuschia dalias and these green berries. The cost of this was $55.

 

Marvin is wonderful. Tell  him your colors or what flowers you like and he'll send you pics to fit your colors and hopefully you'll find something you like. I had originally asked for plain calla lillies but it was alot more expensive. He said some flowers are more b/c they have to import it. I am sure those green orchids are imported as well. Hence the price. He has paypal now so the payment is easy to make. I just paid 50% recently and will pay the rest when he drops off.

For anyone that has already had their ceremony.  Did you get your marriage certificate before you left?  We switched resorts the next day and Valeria said she would mail us the certificate.  We got the DVD yesterday but no certificate....

Since my parents stayed for 3 days after our wedding the DVD and marriage certificate were both delivered to their room and they had it for us.  I would call Valeria to see if it was sent.

Kyndall, Thanks for posting your review.

 

When you said put your phone to airplane mode, does that mean you got free wifi on your phone and didn't get charged through your service provider?

 

I have Doris too for my hair. Please post pics of your hair if you can! Did Doris do your makeup as well? I want a high "Puff" as well. Was she just hesistant or did she not know what to do?

BTW, you said you gave your wc a thank you gift.Was it her tip? Or did you get her something else?

 

Congrats and I am glad to hear your wedding was such a success even though you had a diff wc.

It was free wifi and I didn't get charged by AT&T.  Just be sure and turn your data roam off so you can't get text or calls.

 

I will see if my Mom has some pics of my hair.  She knew what a poof was but I just think maybe that she like her hair a little tighter to her head.  My girl here gave me a big Texas poof so it would show up in pictures. 
 

It was just a tip.

    • 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?
