I bubble wrapped the lanterns and packed them in a duffel bag, which was my husband's carry on.  I carried my dress in a garment bag. We didn't have any problems in customs.

 

I packed the candles, frames, shells, starfishes, and sand ceremony kit in a luggage which was checked in.  Sadly, the glass on one of my frames broke but it wasn't bad.  The worst was when I realized that the main piece for the Sand Ceremony shattered.  I ended up using the smaller pieces instead.  Be very careful how you package each item if you're considering shipping it over.  Susana did mention that a few brides have shipped materials over and they always arrive to the "Bodas" office.  It's not a big office and I didn't see any closets, so not sure where exactly they would store your goodies.

 

I hope this helps. Don't hesitate to ask more questions.

Thanks So much. By chance who did you use for the DJ?

 

Also, did you pay for your hair and make up or was it included in your package?

I rented the music equipment and played music from IPhone. My brother-in-law handled playlist.  The 3 hours do go by quickly and we tried to enjoy every moment.  I don't regret my decision.  

 

We almost considered getting a dance floor but didn't. Again, another decision I don't regret.  The reception is on beach near a hut which had some concrete in front of the bar. Some of my guests liked the sand while others, especially "salseros", preferred the concrete floor. 

 

My hair and makeup was included with Strawberry Package. They have a book and pages with style ideas that you could choose from. She even had some of the pages of hairstyles that I liked from Pinterest...so they are up-to-date.  I brought my own makeup but also used some from the Spa.  They don't have a huge selection for eyeshadows. It looked like a 12 color palette from Sephora. 

I did give Maritza a tip...I was very pleased with my look!

 

My sister has a good close-up.  I'll get it from her and post

For the ladies that have gotten married there... My fiance just read somewhere that we have to bring passports and have a bunch of paperwork noterized before we get married? What specifically do we need to bring/do for our marriage to be legal here in the US??

    • 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?
