Hello ALL!

Recommended Posts

Hello Brides, I am very excited to have booked my wedding for Nov 9, 2013. So far this forum has provided very insightful information. I have also booked HDC for photography. I tried to book DJ Mannia but I thought he was a bit too expensive. They wanted 990 just for dj services and add the extra vendor fee, has anyone though of using the dj from the hotel?

you're very welcome Carrol1121......for another music option.....have you considered loading your own music on an iPod and plugging that into the hotel sound system? would ensure you have your fav tunes to create the perfect party atmosphere you wish for......best o luck :)

I think that is what we are doing, an iPod. I think for the short amount of time for our reception, only 3 hrs, we didn't want to spend so much on a dj.

We also decided on using the ipod.

DJ was $100 an hour, but did not anounce anything. We were suppose to get someone from our group to do it for us.

But since we have such a small group, I feel really bad asking someone to be our MC. So I asked the wedding cordinator if we could hire someone for that. She is trying to figure something out.

 

And I thought destination wedding were not stressful!!!!!

    • 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.
