Girls, I need some help...

 

I'm just in the process of sorting and organizing wedding stuff...and I already have a stack of stuff to sell that I won't be using.  I'm thinking I'll start local and put stuff up on Kijiji.  But if I put stuff up for sale on BDW, what is the easiest way to move funds from buyer to seller here in Canada.  I don't want to do anything where there would be additional costs for me or the buyer.  I would just like to recoup my $ + shipping costs.

Hi Kristina,

We are getting married in the Mayan in January and there are only going to be 13 of us in total. We aren't getting a DJ for the same reason. What we are doing is having a cocktail reception at 5:30, our wedding is at 4:00 (photos right after) Dinner at 6:00 or 6:30. We have a mariachi band included in our package so we are going to get them to come to the beginning of our dinner. We are going to have maracas at each place setting so I am hoping everyone gets up and dances a bit to the music. After dinner, we are going to check out the disco...if it isn't happening i know there is a piano bar at the resort so we may just end the night there. We put together a good pre wedding package if info for the resort and area that I will soon post on here with photos. But I would be happy to share it with you. Secrets resorts and Dreams resorts are owned by the same company and we stayed right by the Secrets Capri I think two years ago. It was a gorgeous resort. I am sure your resort will be amazing! We are getting married at Dreams tulum.

I'm getting married in Mexico next summer and am now starting to think about details. We're having a smaller wedding as people are traveling from Australia to attend. There are only 13 people plus my fiance and I and was wondering if anyone else has had a similar sized wedding and could offer me some tips.
We're planning on doing the cocktail hour and dinner reception, but it seems silly to get a dj for just 15 people. Any advice on balancing a small group, but still having it feel like a wedding would be appreciated!

Kristina,

I forgot to mention that we're bringing our laptop and speakers so we can play music at dinner, (our reception is poolside) and we are allowed music.

We are going to have a first dance and possibly a couple others but I heard from past DT brides that you don't need to book a dance floor for a little

dancing. They charge you 750$ for the dance floor! Hope this helps.
