Thanks!!

 

I don't think we're going to use the DJ, but we're not having that many people, only about 20, so it seemed like an extra unnecessary expense for so little people.  I really want to hire an outside photography, however, my fiance is in a little bit of sticker shock with how much a photographer costs, soooo...I need to do a little more convincing on that :S

 

Also, we're only going with the eternity package because there was not as much that we wouldn't use and I had heard of some brides having bad luck swapping stuff and ended up with a lot of things they didn't need or want.  We might change this as the planning gets closer, but I haven't actually even spoken with Pilar yet!

 

How about you?

Right now we are still trying to figure out alot of the details, including DJ and photography. I know for sure I am not going to use the resort photographer - all of the work i have seen (in my opinion) i could probably take better pictures myself. When its all said and done, that is all you have to look back on and I want to look back at some amazingly beautiful pictures - try that one with the hubs ;) 

We are going with the Divine package at this point, but like you said, there are things that I know I am not going to use in the package, like the photographer. No luck so far trying to swap anything, but I did pull all the items i DO want from the package and did get a quote and the quote was actually almost double the $2999 package price. So even if we won't use certain things, its still cheaper to go with the package! We will have about 50 people coming. We are also 25 year olds who like to dance so a DJ is a MUST have for us!

Happy Planning!

I think we're just going to ge the sound system and play an Ipod. There might be some dancing, but not 1000 worth! haha...

 

We're having a reception back home, so maybe we'll have more party there!

Does anyone know which locations for ceremony and/or reception are handicap accessible? I have not been able to get this answer from anyone at the resort after sending emails a couple times over the last 3 weeks.....The handicap accessibility is our only concern
HI there, Congtatulations and I hope you have a wonderful day. I got married 5 weeks ago and it was beautiful. Please do not worry about anything the wc are amazing, they know what they are doing. In regards ro you question the only place I think you would have trouble is if your guest wa in a wheel chair and you were going on the beach. Everywhere else has a pathway as well as stair access. Hope all goes well and if you need anymore help please so ask. Natasha

HOT!! It was HOT! Everyone was constantly hot but it's Mexico so we all expected that. Wouldn't stop me going back in June again, but expect it to be hot.
My wedding is June 12, 2015. I liked the terrace but am worried about the heat in June. However, I hate the traditional "hall" feeling. Was the bamboo room a good choice looking back on it? Or do you think the terrace would have been good? Thanks

Bamboo Room is the best option in my opinion. That's the only thing I would have changed if I could do it over again. Your ceremony & cocktail hour will prob be outdoors. It's a nice break for you and your guest to have an A/C reception indoors, especially in a June. When I saw the Bamboo Room I thought it was great.

I'm fairly laid-back and I have a flexible view of my wedding day so I don't have any really specific things to worry about, however, did anyone have any surprises once they got down there or in the planning process?

    • 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.
