So fun!

That was the first thing Brad and I said when looking at your pic...that the kitchen is horrible...BUT we won't really be in the kitchen...and that's probably why it's not so great! it isn't where most people will be... Yeah, it's not a big deal unless you were going to try and host something there w/o FA's help...which we were...but now we're just going to do a taco bar on the night we use the suite, and it'll be great. We'll still do our own alcohol, so there's plenty of room in the fridge for that.

The 2nd bedroom is still huge, and so is the bathroom. From the pics it's doesn't look like the suite is 5200 sq feet...what do you think? Is it just that the rooms are so big that is where the sq footage is? Or I wonder if they include all the decks and patios.. 5,200 is pretty large, and it's a big suite, but that might include the deck? I don't know, the hallways, the dining & living and the bedrooms are pretty big though.

Jill, thanks for taking so many pics and commenting on things. Thank you too for taking pics of tha patio...I didn't realize it was the only way to get down to the patio. I also didn't realize exactly how large the lower patio is...or so it seems from the pics, so I'm sure that is enough space for dancing...we only have like 35 people anyway...so it's no like we need a ton of room!!! If I think of any other questions I will run them by you! :) You'll have tons of room down there...they have used it for 300 people before, so you should be just fine, and have enough room to keep yoru guests entertained by moving them around, i.e. set up the dinner in one location, move for dancing, etc. It's perfect!

Oh...how was the food...what did you taste?
OMG I forgot about the tasting...it was fabulous! Daniela had us a conference room reserved, with our names on one of those wooden signs outside, full formal set up with china, etc. Wine, two wait staff, it was awesome. And the best thing was that the food was all delicious, I am thrilled about our menu choices and they will be perfect for the reception. We didn't have time to taste appetizers since I asked too late, but Daniela had them sent to our room the next day for a little mid-afternoon snack. Good thing that we did that, since we didn't like any exept for the shrimp shooters. So I'm glad we did that. But overall, Daniela was perfect and completely blew us away with her hospitality. We even decided to have after-party food at our reception after we were talking to her, she has already sent us the menus and it's going to be so fun!!

I'm so glad you love the food....and I will note that the appetizers aren't great except the shrimp....

What choices are you picking? Are you doing plated or buffett??

For appetizers, just FYI we tried the smoked salmon bellinis, tostado cones with a bunch of stuff in them, the shimp shooters and something else I'm forgetting. All were mediocre at best except for the shimp shooters which were perfect.

We chose the Gala Buffet I think, and took out the mussels on the cold table, took out almost all of the salads and I think left the rest, but added a pasta station and we'll have a cheese station at the cocktail hour.

We're doing all buffet/stations since we're doing plated dinner the night before, and typically weddings here are very interactive, meaning I haven't been to a plated dinner wedding in years...people like to move around and pick and choose and I think it's just a custom thing here. So we will definitely have enough food!

And for the late-night food, called Tournebados (Daniela taught us the word!), we're doing mini tacos, quesadillas, bite-sized tamales, taquitos, etc which will be passed at like 11pm. Very excited about that, especially since our wedding starts so early, our guests are going to need some more food to offset all that alcohol!

OMG these pictures are amazing! I leave for Cabo on Saturday. I'll definitely post my review of FA Imperial Suite when I get back in November.

Thanks again for taking the time to put these pictures online.

You're so awesome Jill!~ Just when I was feeling a little down you picked me right back up with the pics :) I wish we could stay in the suite all week. But we'll have to make the most out of our one night. I can't wait to go down there at the end of the month.

 

Thanks Jill

    • 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.
