TealMarie,

 

It took a really long time for the spa to get back to me.  If I remember correctly, it was almost a month because I forgot I emailed them!  They did eventually give me times and pricing for everyone.  They gave me pricing for myself too but I reminded them it was included in my package and they adjusted it.  It probably wouldn't hurt to ask Gloria.  She will probably refer you to the spa anyway, like she did me, but atleast she'll know.  Also, FYI, I'm getting married in July and I just asked her for an estimate of my charges and she sent me an invoice for what my bill will be.  It breaks down all of your choices and she had everything spot on so I'm feeling much better about everything.  I was worried their would be pop up charges I wasn't thinking of.  I would suggest you doing the same when your date gets closer!

I'd also love to hear about how long the walk is and what songs brides have chosen to walk down the aisle to.  I'm trying to decide on the wedding march or something else.  My bridesmaids are walking to The Forrest Gump theme song.  I know it sounds weird but it's really great and everyone always recognizes it but can't place what song it is.  :)

Okay, good to hear it's not just me. They responded to me in maybe 4-7 days but it just seemed like they weren't reading my emails. At least I'm doing this well ahead of time so if it ends up taking 2 months to book it, oh well. And yes they showed me the charge for my own hair/MU. Thanks for reminding me that I don't have to pay for that! How many people in your party are getting hair/MU and how many hours before your ceremony are you guys starting to get ready?

 

That is so smart to ask for an invoice.

( And maybe sneak a bottle or two of Corona into the bags!) I know it;s cheating, but I really don't want to drag all that to Mexico along with chair sashes etc! 

 

I would love to know the answer to how long the walk is also!

That's not cheating, that's a great idea.

I also had to remind them to not charge me! They got back to me within a week.

My ceremony is at 3pm so I made my appointment for 10am. They scheduled 2 people at a time so I believe the last person who will be getting their hair done is at 12:30.  That should give us time for pictures and just relax before the ceremony. 

 

Do any of you ladies know how the alcohol works for the reception? I'm having my reception in Barcelona and I was wondering if they have a bar set up or how that works.

    • 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.
    • 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?
