I heart you for the pics! Very elegant. One queston..I'm also having my ceremony on the Tequila Terrace b/c my FI refuses to walk on the sand! Anyway, did you pay additional for the arrangements by the chuppah?

Yes, I would like to know also

 

Hi, yes. We paid approximately $150 per piece for the orchids next to the chuppa. The chuppa itself was stunning - HUGE! We didn't pay extra for that. I'll try to upload my bill so you can see what we paid for the individual items. However, I will note that we were not successful negotiating at all. We tried to negotiate price reductions on a number of things and we didn't get anywhere....

Here are the resort photographer's pictures from our rehearsal dinner -  IMG_0274

 

These pictures are actually way better quality than we saw from some of the other resort photographers. The photographer was Ernesto. If you use them, I'd ask for him.

Your pictures are beautiful! When do you get your wedding pictures? How long did it take to get these?

It took a little less than two weeks to get these from the resort photographer. Our other photographer said it would be about 2 weeks to get a slideshow and 4-6 weeks for the full set of pictures.

Hey Ladies,

 

I'm getting married June 19, 2014!! 

 

We are going to use our bridesmaid bouquets for our centerpieces and I'm going to have my MIL make some runners with my teal color to add some fun. We want to keep it simply and use the beach as part of our decorations. 

 

For the ladies that already go married, how long should one plan for hair and makeup? Just curious as I have some girls getting hair done as well and want to give all of us enough time.

 

Also does anyone know how old people need to be to enter to disco or other bars? I have a niece and nephew who will be 13 and 16 and we are not extending our reception, but I want to make sure they can come with us to continue the celebration.

 

To follow up ladies I asked Anel about having two dinner choices and this is Anel emailed me this: 

YOU NEED TO SELECT ONE MENU; ONE SALAD, ONE SOUP, ONE MAIN COURSE AND ONE DESSERT.   WE CAN GIVE YOU THE OPTION PICK 2 MAIN COURSES, BUT YOU NEED TO GIVE ME THE FINAL COUNT IN ADVANCE, HOW MANY PEOPLE IS GOIG TO EAT OPTION ONE AND OPTION 2?   YOU ALSO NEED TO BRING COLORED PLACE CARDS, IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY THE GUEST WHO ARE GOING TO EAT OPTION ONE AND OPTION 2.   PLEASE SEE AN EXAMPLE BELOW.

?ui=2&ik=90c2b9c523&view=att&th=14042598876deba1&attid=0.7&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1

 

Have a great day ladies!

Hair for me = 1 hour

Make-up = 30 minutes

 

I can't speak to the club in terms of whether the young people would be allowed in. Honestly, the club smelled really moldy and gross, so no one wanted to go in, so we stayed at the lobby bar (which was still really fun - if I remember correctly, there was still live music until about midnight). They definitely didn't give the young people any trouble for being there.

That's not too bad,  may have to consider that as an option. Thanks so much!!!!!!

It looks like you are on the Tequila Terrace... did you wear heels and if so, were the wood slats THAT big of an issue for you? 

 

Also, can anyone help me visualize where the Beach Terrace and Tequila Terrace are in relation to one another?  Do you know if they give you the option of having ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour on the Beach Terrace then reception on the Tequila Terrace (or vice versa)?

    • 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.
