I just have to say I love my fellow BDW brides!  So many of you sent me the flower brochure!!  Thanks so much!!!  As of right now, which we all know could just possibly change, it looks like I will be going with Bridal Bouquet 52!  I'm requesting a few changes... I should end up with 6 pale pink roses with white dendrobium orchids, blue hydrangeas and dune grass.  If I stick with this, I would then have my fiance's boutinerre be a white dendrobium orchid w/blue hydrangeas and dune grass.  It would have all my wedding colors in it and I think it would definitely be more "bridal" than just the hydrangeas!  Will keep everyone updated!! LOL

I came on here because I wanted to see how the communication with you WC is?  I saw an older post from Palladium brides in 09 where they said it was terrible.  I've asked for a contract to reserve our date on Thursday and I still havent had a response (its Tuesday).  I dont know if I can work with a venue that takes a week to get back to me.  I'm trying to plan this wedding in 5 months!  Whats the longest you've had to wait for an email response?  How is trying to reach them via phone?

The dinner that is included in the ceremony package is for small receptions and it's at one of the a la cartes.  Due to the amount of guest we have coming, we have to do a private reception (which is what we wanted anyway).

 

It's $45/pp which includes a 4 course meal and regular bar.  We booked the Blue Lagoon Restaurant with a DJ for 4 hrs and the Zurielmaka show as well.

We have a total of 43 which includes us and our 2 photographers.  For menu, you get to choose whichever a la carte menu you would like.

The time varies anywhere from 2-5 days.  I honestly don't think you need to worry.  There isn't much you have to set up with them until you actually get down there.  I've heard of many brides that don't do any planning till they get down there.  So no worries!  :)

 

Also, if you have any questions, just ask us on here!  Lots of knowledge here!

I decided on my bouquet!!!  My mom is probably so happy 'cause I was asking her non stop for her thoughts on it the past couple of days! LOL

 

I'm still going with Bridal Bouquet 52 (pic below), but now I'm keeping the white roses (6 instead of 12 though), I'm changing the dendrobium orchids to cymbidium orchids to get my touch of pink(2nd pic), keeping the hydrangeas and adding bear grass as an accent.  We also decided that my fiance will have a white rose boutinerre with bear grass accent.  Can't wait to see!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
