Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I am getting married on April 11 at 2:00 PM at SGOR. It will only be my fiance and myself and this is our first marriage. We are looking at the beach for our wedding since there will only be the two of us. I didnt have a really good experience with the first wedding coordinator we were put with who was Diedra so we are getitng a new one. We chose the beautiful beginnings package and we didnt have a photographer so we had to go with Sandals...I know its expensive but at this point we dont have a choice. I could use all the suggestions and advice I can get from any of you that have been married here. I am planning on getting my hair and make up done at the spa there. Please give me all advice and suggestions...I really could use it. Thanks girls.

Hey Shyla!

I got married there on Dec 21, if you have any questions email me, I will be able to help, also I have all the locations pics. There are a few wedding pics in my signature. Check them out too. BTW beach is not a good location to get married there, very small and not private at all

My husband and I were married there April 30th of last year.  Our wedding coordinator was Vinnette (sp?).  She was AMAZING.  The sandals photographers are great--we loved our photos.  They don't touch them up or anything but you can do a lot of that on your own anyway.  We were so incredibly impressed with our whole experience.  What I will tell you--the people that you talk to on the phone are in Miami.  They are salesmen/women.  They are NOT (and many have never been) onsite.  Why I am telling you this is because when you get there, some things may change.  Shouldn't be an issue since it is just the two of you (like it was with us). Don't stress. Vinnette or whomever you deal with on site will make everything perfect.  I had my hair and makeup done at the spa and they were great.  They do a fantastic job. 


 

As far as location goes, I agree with Kat2012--the beach isn't the best place.  We were married on the pier outside Kimono's because that was the prettiest spot to us.  There is one gazebo that most people get married at but honestly, I didn't like it.  They don't make you decide any of that until you get there anyway so you will have time to look around some beforehand. 

 

I also have a few pictures in my profile.  I can get you more if you want to look--I just couldn't get them to upload. 

 

Let me know if I can help!

Hey I am also getting married on June 15 at 2:00pm at SGOR. Shyla I was having similar questions. I really wanted a beach wedding but after reading how there is just not any privacy this concerns me. After looking at several pictures I was wondering if anyone has looked or if it is possible to get married in front of the part that sticks out and looks incredibly green. I also loved the pier idea and loved those pictures. I guess I am still fighting for the beach.   I am also just going with the BB package and more than likely will just be my finance and I. We are going with the photography there at Sandals and going to try to see if someone we meet would film for us for our kids with our camera. Nothing like cutting costs!!! Just can't see  I have gone back and forth about getting my makeup done since I am so sensitive to makeup or if I can handle my hair down but very thick but I look better with it down. If you all have any pointers I would love them. Shyla looks like you are going first so maybe we can work through this together and you can let me know how it is when you go. I won't be far behind. I don't know about you but I am concerned about the heat at 2:00pm!!!!

    • 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.
