She is so busy with the brides who are there that it's hard for her to email us all back all the time, well this is what she said to me anyway lol...her only day off this week is Sunday and she's using it to meet with me to go over our wedding! Even though she might not respond she has saved all your emails and she confirmed this with me...I can't wait to get down there (we leave for the airport 3:00 am Sunday) and I will do a huge review and post pics when I'm back!

Congrats Lindsay!! So exciting. I hope your day is perfect. :)


What you said is so true. Last I heard from Mayte, she said she was getting busier and busier everyday. She is truly dedicated to her brides though.

Great thanks Mady!!

That's very exciting!  Less than 2 months to go now.  I received my quote from Mayte today.

Hi Ladies. 


Apparently, if you booked in 2012, but did NOT get a firm pre-invoice before 2013, the restaurant will not honor the old pricing for you.. When I booked on Jan 4, 2012, I receive a wedding brochure with the "old" prices. She told me to wait to get the quote until I had firm numbers and not to worry about anything. At no point were we told that the pricing would change, or that getting a pre-invoice was time sensitive.


As everyone knows, communication with Mayte is near impossible. I've heard all all about how incredibly busy she is, so I decided to try to not bother her, and didn't hurry her about that quote (we were keeping our own tabs on pricing and budget based off of the brochure she had sent us. 


Now suddenly, Mayte is saying that it's impossible to keep the old prices, since those were from 2009. Now, I know for a fact that brides were being charged these same "2009" prices in December of 2012 for their final invoices.


It's INCREDIBLY frustrating and I can't help but feel like we are being cheated.

Hi Ladies,

Just returned from my wedding last Friday at the Jellyfish. I too was worried because I did not communicate a lot with Mayte but when I arrived there I saw that she had EVERYTHING under control. We had our food tasting and she took our recommendations to modify the food a bit. On the day of the wedding, I was a bit late but she organized everything and even have us the queue for the walk down the aisle. 


And last but not least, the decorations were beautiful! I only gave her the colors and didn't give specific instructions and she more than pulled through. I was amazed and so were my guests. 


I would gladly recommend her to anyone.

Hi girls,


Same here, communication with Mayte has been very difficult but at least I have 6 months before my wedding, but I understand how frustrating not getting any reassurance that everything is according to plan can be.

I am actually in a bit of trouble because of the lack of communication now because for the past month I have been trying everything I can to get the proper address for the restaurant and nobody knows it and Mayte doesn't get back to me. How did you guys put it in your invites?


Thank you!

It's so great that you are forwarding the new list to some brides, I haven't heard anything about it from Mayte either. Do you mind sending me a copy when you get a chance? camilazev@aol.com Thanks! :)

    • 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?
