Recommended Posts

I have enjoyed looking over your wedding plans and your final wedding photographs and comments. I did want to ask a question about the beach wedding. I know I have read about the crowded beach and small beach space but I had an idea after looking at your pictures. You know where the island comes out and looks like there is some shade close to the water. I think ya'll took some pictures in the water. It kind of looks like it is more green along with having the beach. Would that be a place you could get married at or  would one of the gazebos be a better options such as the one you took on the pier where you and your husband sat down on the ropes? I really wanted to be closer to the water. We are suppose to get married 6/15 at 2pm. Any suggestions would be great!!!! Thank you again for all the information. I am sure I have several questions for you.

Hey, Where we took those pictures is main part of the beach. And it will be very crowded.

Also end of the pier is not a bad idea, but can be windy and it does not cover much in case of rain ( I saw poor groom waiting for his bride in the rain there. He was totally soaked and all their decoration was soaked as well.) If I would choose between beach or pier. I would definitely go with pier. PM me with more questions :D

Thank you :D

I got my cake topper on etsy.com. Seller is mudcards. I would advise to order at least 4-6 weeks ahead, because she is in Israel.

Kat,

 

I want to thank you again for sending me the wedding locations. I am getting ready to have another phone session with my WC and would like to get a lot of things figured out and put into stone since last time wasn't that productive! So with that said, I have begun starting to have more and more questions, hopefully you are able to offer some help. In regards to the music, did you bring your own, or let them choose? I saw that there was an option to rent a soloist, steel drum band ext. But I am wondering if it's an option to higher someone to play the guitar instead of these choice. I didn't know if that was an option or not. Also, I noticed you had a different photographer, how did Sandals handle that? I have a family member who takes pictures so we are just going to have her take ours, I wasn't sure if they would have a fit though. I am probably over thinking and trying to find things to stress over, but any advice you can offer will be helpful! Thank you sooo much~

Hey, we brought our own music, I had copy on CD, iPod and my iPhone haha I was too scared to not to have it. I did not ask about other options for music. I was afraid to ask for too many things lol, every time I opened my mouth with my phone WC it cost me money :D I asked my WC to not to have any Sandals photographer at our wedding, so they wont be in my photographers way. My photographer shoot two weeding in 3 days and they called her room and asked her about her business. She said that she is our friend and they let her off the hook. We actually spent a lot of time with another couple and our photographer. So yeah, your photographer won't have a problem, but they might ask her some questions. Let me know if you have any more questions. And WC on the phone is not mush of WC, she is more of a sales person.

    • 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.
