In case any of you are wondering what the ceremony & reception decorations include, please see Mayte's response below from an email I received from her:

 

As for decorations, what does the ceremony decorations include? What color options do you have for tulles/flowers/chair sashes, etc?

Bamboo tent in wedding colors, decoration tent, cahirs cover cahirs and sashes in wedding colors, ceremony table and centerpieces, carpet for the aisle, decoration aisle, tikki torches with decorations, lounge area on the beach, with white sofas, pillow and tikki torches.
For the decoration indoors, what does this include: tables/chairs/napkins/centerpieces, ect?

You have a lots of pictures in Jellyfish Fa ce book.   I also asked how much it would cost to rent only the downstairs part of the restaurant instead of having the exclusive use of the restaurant for $1000, she said it was $500 instead. This info was not on the brochure she gave me.   Hope this info helps some of you and happy planning!! cheer2.gif   Cheers, Mel

Hi ladies.. just wondering what you were planning on doing for music for your reception.  We were planning on using our ipod instead of the DJ.. but when I asked Mayte about that, she said we would have to pay $400 to use their sound equipment.. didn't really make sense to me since using the DJ is $600.. past brides what did you do?

 

Our ceremony is at 3PM so I really didn't want to make it into such a long day, if we use the DJ then we would stay until like 11PM and we were planning on ending around 9PM after dances, cake cutting, and some dancing.. and then whoever wants can continue to party with us at the resort. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I opted for a DJ - but my wedding isn't starting until 5 and it will go all night long - so the DJ was an easy pick.  If it is only a difference of 200 dollars I would def use the DJ - it will change the whole vibe of your wedding and I bet the guests will love it!

 

I paid my deposit today finally, but was a little annoyed as I had to do a wire transfer because Mayte doesn't have paypal.  It cost me $30 just to do the transfer.  I really don't feel as though I should have to pay $30 out of my pocket because she decided to have payment by wire. 

Do you guys agree?

It really does suck that the only way we can pay her is via wire transfer. I wish there was another way . . . we are about to pay our deposit as well. Did you just walk into your bank with the banking details Mayte gave you to do the wire transfer?

Hey guys,

I am also getting ready to wire the money to her. I have no idea what to do. Did you walk into your normal bank and give them the bank of america info. that Mayte gave us? Anyone that did this can you please explain the process? Did you get a receipt or confirmation? Thanks!

Hey guys - yes I just took the information that Mayte gave me - it is for a bank in Florida (kinda strange).  I just told the teller I needed to wire transfer money, told her I wanted to do it in US currency (I am from Canada) and then gave her the info Mayte gave me.  It took about 10 minutes for her to input all the information, she made me look it over and then she sent it.  She told me it would cost me $30 CAD to send the money and said there is a charge at Mayte's for her to accept the deposit - she asked if I wanted to pay for that charge and I said no.  I think Mayte should have told me there was going to be a charge on my end, because I had no idea and it really bothered me.

 

Hope this helps you guys.

 

Natalie

Thanks Natalie,


It def. does help! So did you end up paying the $30 or is that when you said you wouldn't pay it and will let Mayte deal with it?. I'd be interested in seeing if she would say anything about her having to pay it. Did you just go to your normal local bank to do the transfer or does it have to be a specific bank?

Thanks again

Brooke

 

p.s. Does anyone know if all cash exchanges with Mayte is american cash?

    • 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?
