I am! We just tried to get something different at every stage. two hot and two cold apps, we did chicken and beef apps and fish for dinner. That way we can try a little of everything. Also if you have a large portion of people who are allergic to fish or something it might be easier to go with the chicken or beef. Thats really the only thought I put into it. I can't go down and sample the food so its pretty much a guessing game. I'm hoping the atmosphere will be what people remember!

I visited the Now Sapphire in the beginning of June.  My Fiance and I were there celebrating an anniversary so we got a private dinner on the beach.  The hotel photographer took pictures of us.  We viewed the pictures, and personally, I did not like any of them.  I felt that the pictures we took ourselves were better.  I was not impressed and for my wedding, we are hiring La Luna photography.  I like the photojournalistic approach though, and she did not seem to do that.  It may just be my personal preference.

Hey Vanessa56,

 

I am using the hotel photographer since I am getting the Divine Package and it comes with it.  My sister is a photographer and she will be attending my wedding there so she will be doing candid shots throughout the week and during the reception.  I will mainly use the hotel photographer for the ceremony.  I have seen some of their pics and I thought they were nice.  I guess it depends on your budget and what you expect out of the quanity of photos taken.

Ladies, Thanks so much for the feedback. We're trying to do the wedding on a tight budget, so the feedback is very helpful. We are also going with the Divine package, so we were considering using the hotel photographer to save some money. I guess we'll have to wait to see how many people are coming or work a photographer into the budget otherwise. I have also heard good things about La Luna photographers from some of the other ladies on the board.

    • 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.
