We haven't really discussed to much of the actual logistic's yet actually... my fiance and I are still deciding on whether or not to pay the extra $$ for the private reception, we're only going to have about 35 guests, and the thing is you pay for 50 even if you dont have 50... so we're stumped!

Once we've made our minds on that.. then it will be time to get serious. I have alot in my head that I'd like to see happen... but we'll see how much actually comes true (and how much we want to pay for!!) :)

From what i've seen it usually takes Nadia a few days to respond to emails, she does have many weddings a week to do, so really, she probably doesn't care much about ours since they're still 3 months away :P

I have started planning with Nadia and there is really not that much to do since we are only having 24 people so there is no point in having a private reception.  She said that they will reserve a section of the restaurant for us which is good enough for me.  Has she told anyone which restaurant you will be having the dinner in?

we are only having about 20-25 people; but, I really wanted the dinner to be on the beach so I guess we will probably have to pay for 50 people.  which I am not to happy about - but I know if we went all the way down there for our wedding & I didn't do it the way that I wanted just because of the money aspect I would be disappointed and probably regret not doing it.  I have set the date & time..but nothing else is for sure yet.  I emailed her the other day describing that we wanted the ceremony outside with a cocktail/appetizer hour following & then a dinner on the beach.  but, she hasn't responded to my email yet...so still waiting to hear what she says.  i also asked why a cocktail hour would cost so much extra when all of our guests are already staying at the hotel with an all inclusive package.  we haven't gotten into any of the details yet.  I know of someone getting married there at the begin of Jan & her wedding is already planned!  so I felt like I had better start! 

 

are you guys doing a dance/party after the dinner?  I was looking into having a dance floor setup on the beach with tiki torches & a DJ ... this is all getting SO expensive.  are you guys going with a DJ?

 

also - are you going with the resort photographer?

I think that we are going to go with the following:  ceremony on the beach followed by cocktail hour with the DJ and then the dinner.  Kind of backwards then normal but the easiest.  We decided to get the resort photographer after seeing a few sample shots.  I also have others coming to the wedding that are able to take great pictures.

Apparently the DJ is included for the first hour after the ceremony but you have to pay anytime after that.

When are you getting married again?

We're probably going to go with non private as well b/c of the cost. we're only having 35 ppl so I really dont want to pay for 50 people. We really havent discussed with Nadia exactly what we want yet... ideally I wanted to just set my my Ipod somewhere, get some speakers, and have our own dance party, but if we're not have private, it might be awkward with the rest of the guests there :P So i'm not sure where to go from there... I would still like to do first dance and father/daughter dance, but i dont know how it works if we're not seperated from the other guests?!?! anyone know...?!?!...

As for photographer, we're going with Juan Navarro. My fiance is an amatuer photographer himself, and he really liked what Juan did, so we're going with him and I'm pumped about it! :):)

    • 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?
