Thank you for replying Brandi!

 

And oh boy...haha I was not expecting all that time in between.

 

We cannot push our wedding back any later now; Pergola is reserved for 3:00pm; pictures, then cocktail hour at 5pm.

 

The sun sets between 5pm-6pm in Cancun in Oct/Nov!!! So we NEED daylight pictures AND sunset pictures on our wedding day!

We will just have to try out our negotiating skills!

When are you getting married?

Are you having a card box at your wedding?  I am up in the air.  I don't want it to seem like we are looking for gifts, but at the same time, I want a place for our guests to put them if they bring them.

 

Also, if we are doing out of town bags, do we still do a wedding favor?

I'm not planning on having a card box since we keep telling people their "presence is present enough". Our bridal party is discreetly puting out by word of mouth that we will be setting up a honeymoon registry. That way if they still have the desire to give, they can contribute to that. As far as favors, we are still deciding between maracas from Amols or doing a group excursion. Ultimately it will depend on our final guest count.

I am wondering the same thing about the card box. I think I am still going to have one because we are telling people not to get anythign for us, but I would still love to have cards to remember the special day. I am doing OOT bags so am not going to have favors at the reception.

We didn't have a card box at our reception and multiple people were looking for a place to put cards (we had also made it evident that the presence of guests at the wedding was present enough, but some still wanted to give a gift and others wanted to give a card to commemorate the day).  One of my friends ended up collecting the cards, but a box would have been nice.  We had OOT and then just a small wedding favor at the reception.

I was wondering how everyone is marking what each guest is eating at the reception dinner? If we have 2 different options how will then no who gets what?

I've seen couples put a cow or fish on menu cards or place cards so the wait staff would know which dish went where. I wish I could remember where I saw an example of this on here. I'm interested in hearing other suggestions as well. I'm not sold on the one I mentioned.

I have luggage tags for wedding favors so instead of having place cards, I'm putting their names on their luggage tag (as you would fill out the address portion of the tag) and having them already placed at their seat. The papers that I use to print their names on are two colors: mint and silver (my wedding colors) so each color wil represent a main course. If it turns out that the colors paper isn't noticeable enough for the service staff, I'll just tie a colored ribbon around the luggage tag. That's the plan in my head. I'll post once they're completed. Complete products could be a total different story LOL

    • 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.
