I ave asked and they said no, and today they have put the fee up to $800 per vendor. So there is no chance of getting the ones I want now :-(

 

 

Oh that is just pants! I dont know how they get away with it. What's your onsite company like?

The onsite DJ hasn't got very good reviews. There are about 5 photographers that they recommend, they look okay but will have to have a serious look at them.

Would you not opt for the ipod then? Is it worth paying out all that money for a DJ that isn't that great? I'm sure there will be a buzzing atmosphere with your wedding party on the day anyhow. Good luck i know we umm'd and arr'd for a while over our photographers. Decisions, decisions.....

Hi Ladies

 

I havent read all the posts but had to get out of the sun for a bit  - it is soooooooooo hot 29degs again today.

 

It rained torrentially our first day and since then it has been really hot - i think the wedding pics will be amusing some of our guests have sun burn as its also v breezy here.  Away from the sea though it is sooooooooo hot.

 

Saw one other wedding since we have been here and am so glad I didnt go for a big dress as although we get married at 4pm it is still really warm at that time!

 

Well only 3 days before the wedding and I still just feel like I`m on holiday!  Sending warm sunny wishes from Mexico xx

Were doing the same as you Michelle... just meal and then drinks & hopefully a club afterwards :-) x

My cake topper arrived today, I will post a picture once I've taken one, it is Superman carrying Lois Lane so cute, we also ordered the wedding cake knife & server which has ribbon on them & a little superman emblem & our champagne flute again with ribbon & the superman sign on....sounds tacky but super cute!!  Got Richards documents all posted off for translation today as well & going Lakeside on saturday to try some shoes on 2 bridesmaid who are 11 & 12....they are desperate to wear a heel......so it all seems like I'm getting somewhere at the minute......what do you think of the shoes girls?.....truthfully do you think they are suitable for 11 &12?

Don't know why they have come up so small but you get the idea.

Love the idea of the superman & lois things.... adds a lot of fun to everything :)

 

Shoes are great... i think they are perfectly ok for 11 & 12 yr olds... the heels look small so yeah.... If the heels were high i would have said no.

 

Here is the list i have im not actually sure how up to date it is so add or change if you need too :-)

I have a big dress but it wont go on till just before the ceremony and i'll be in air conditioned rooms. It'll only be the ceremony and photos i'm in the heat so think i'll just grin and bear it ha ha... Our meal is in air conditioned room so sure i'll be OK, lol. x

 

Nicy we fly with either Thomas Cook or Monarch! When we booked it was TC then they changed it to Monarch and said it could change again so i'll check both those diamentions out to be on the safe side :o)

    • 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?
