I too am going to probably do the steakhouse and rent out privately. Can you give a review after your wedding? It will be really good to get a review from you after! It would be very helpful for us!

 

 

Good idea i will put in a review...this site needs a up to date review on how things go with new management.

 

Unfortunately we will not be using the steakhouse as our number dropped to 49. They were going to honor the reservation if we were at 50 but 49 makes a big difference to them.

Don Julio terrace both seatings and the beach for dancing...actually beginning to like this idea...just need to restategize the evening for table set up lights etc.

She had her reception on the beach in front of the Don Julio terrace. In this pic you can see the terrace, the lighting, the dj, the flooring.  I think this is a very good idea looking at it.  She has more pics on her face book page but this one showed the most.  I sent her a message asking some questions we have all been discussing. I will let you know when she responds.  This may really be working out in your favor.

Hi...it's mecheers.gif with a little update

 

Ok, so we are booked for both seatings at Don Julio terrace

The beach will be set up with wood floor for dancing. (beach is one step down from the terrace)

We are having Cedric for our DJ and he will also be setting up lights for us.

We have refocused our plans and have grown to like the idea of this location...we believe it will be very romantic...lights through the trees, beach and ocean right there for our back drop...

Dinner will be menu 1 from the steakhouse (included in the price not per plate)

We arrive on Sept 15 and have a meeting at 9:30 the next morning with our WC to go over everthing including a walk about to the ceremony and reception locations. We're hoping at this point we will be able to decide whether an open bar will be needed and make those arrangements then.

 

Flowers are decided on

Cake is decided on (if you haven't heard...you should recheck with your WC as the wedding cake choices have been drastically reduced)

 

WC has our translated documents and has confirmed all are good.

Our translator contacted the WC to confirm what was needed. There has been a lot of questions regarding having the documents apostilled. Apparently  apostille and Canada's Notary publics water mark is the same.

The translator handled all the requirements needed. (Hellen at ETSTRANSLATIONS)

 

19 days til we are there...still breathingcheers.gif

Crys, So excited to hear an update from you. I was on holidays for three weeks and ahve thought about you and how everything was coming along. It seems to be all working out !  I am happy to hear that the reception may be a wonderful change after all!  I am excited to hear how everything turns out and hope that you come on after wards to update us on your special day.  How many guests did you end up having for final count?  Are you using mango for photography?   Looking forward to hearing from you, take lots of pics :) xo

Crys,

 

Well....getting excited?? Everything set now? 

I have been contacted several times by Adriana now and none of the emails were precipitated by me so she is definitely on the ball now and has calmed all my worries of the WC. 

 

 

We are booked for the everything exactly like you. Gazebo, terrace and beach. I think I am most excited about our roof top Jacuzzi Suite though.

 

My fiances sister got married last night in Chicago. Her wedding was sooo elaborate and every detail set, the $$$ this costed pretty much used up my future in laws retirement. I am actually paying for all this myself, and cant do all that they did but everyone commented all day yesterday about how excited they are to come to our wedding b/c of how much its more about the fun vs the "Show".  It wont be at all pretensious but will be very naturally beautiful. I wanted to save money without it making it look like I was trying too, next to the wedding last night, you can tell no expense spared so the natural bride in me kind of worries but also knows.....Nothing compares to a Cabo sunset and Moonlight/candle light ocean backdrop.  Not to mention...I was so disappointed in the music the dj played, I am definitely giving a SET playlist.

 

Did you do designated seats? a Menu card?

 

If I don't talk to you or your mom...Have a great time. All your work will have payed off in multiples. Enjoy this time with you and your new husband.love.gif

    • 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?
