If the tables are broken up it would be easy to name/number tables but I'm not sure if they will be or if they'll be pushed together to form a single long table. Does anyone know what is the norm? I guess my other question is do I even need to do escort cards with this smaller number of people, and just put the maraca on the table at each seat with their name? Or will everyone be circling the table to find their seat so I would need the escort card...and if so how should I do it?

I had 15 people and did a long table. I used maraca's as our favors and I just had them sitting at each seat. I didn't do assigned seating since it was so small but you could put their names on the cards attached to the maracas and people can just look and find there seat. You can also put a little mark on the escort cards as a way to distinguish what each person ordered.

Hello, 

Can anyone tell me if buffet is an option for the reception dinner? We will probably have about 40 people and I do not like the menu options for the eternity of divine packages. I understand you have to do buffet for 50 people or more but we would like to do it anyways!

Thanks!

I think since it's close to 50 people, they will do it for you

if we are doing the symbolic ceremony and doing civil at home, do we have to bring our marriage certificate with us?

Don't have too as not everyone is married before the symbolic ceremony - we opted to do the civil ceremony after our DW, just worked out better for us that way.

Hi all!

 

If you are planning on getting married AFTER your symbolic ceremony in destination, make sure that you confirm with your specific resort as to whether or not they require your marriage certificate before hand. Some resorts do require this, meaning you would need to have your Legal wedding BEFORE departing for your destination wedding! Even if you do not have your marriage certificate yet, they will accept the portion of your marriage license that you are given after your legal wedding!

 

Happy planning!

Ok, I'm confused! If we are getting married before, do we need to bring it? And why? We are getting legally married 2 days prior to leaving, would we have it in time?

    • 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?
