We are approaching the 50 day mark for our wedding countdown and we just heard for Ariadna who sent us this:

 

I will be so glad to help you in all your questions and planning this big day!!
PLease find below some important information that you need to know and also help you to start with this..
  1. Guest List
 
We will need a final list with your guest's full names, arrival dates and Hotel booked.
Please fill the attached document "guest list" and send it back;
if you dot have a guest list yet, send me an approx number of guests and when this list is ready send it to me. Consider that at least 80% of your guests should be staying at the Hotel.
If someone of your guests are not staying in RIU Palace Riviera Maya, they will need wedding passes at extra charge.

 
3. Cocktail Hour

We could arrange a semiprivate cocktail hour after the ceremony for you,
while you are waiting for the dinner. This could be in La Habana Bar or Lyrico Bar, let me know if you are interested.
You also have the option to add appetizers for extra charge in this cocktail hour. Let me know.


4. Wedding Dinner:
Remember that the dinner included in your package is asemiprivate dinner
that means we would open the restaurant for all the guests and just have special tables for you and your party.
You receive regular menu and drinks : soft drinks, beer, wine and water.
Which restaurant would you prefer ?
- Bota Fogo at 6:30pm or 8:30pm or Chillis at 6:30pm or 8:30pm?
Please bare in mind that groups over 30 people for dinner will be accommodated during the 2nd seating 8:30 PM

- Chillis, is an open air restaurant, close to the beach area, tropical
and informal. (I have attached the menu for your consideration)

- Bota Fogo, has A/C, it's formal, Brazilian Rodizo style with a
classic atmosphere. (I have attached the menu for your consideration)

Please check with your wedding coordinator if your choice is available.
**If you want to have a private dinner ($) please ask to your wedding coordinator about your options**



5 . Cake & Main Toast & Set up

Consider that cake, main toast and set up are covered for the amount of people included in your package.
If you have more than this, extra charges will be applied. 22 usd per extra people (this price also include set up for ceremony and set up for dinner)

CHAIRS
On regards the ceremony, it will take like 15 or 20 min. I need you to advise me if you will need chairs for all your guests or may be you will have some bridesmaids/groomsmen who might stand up.


Be informed that the chairs for the ceremony are set without any other decoration, the new chair we are using now for all of our weddings (no matter what location) it is the one as in the picture "nuevas sillas". If you would like to get some ribbons in any color that matches with the rest of your decoration, please advise me. Each ribbon has a fee of 4 USD. See pictures attached. Please consider that the number of chairs included depends on your package.

I have attached you the bouquets we handle for bouquets included into the wedding packages. The flowers we offer are roses, lilies, gerberas, acapulcos. In case you would like some other design of bouquet, I can send you more examples with the respective price or send me a picture so I can send it over the florist for quoting.Please see pictures attached.



6. Music:
We can play our CD`s with music that we handle for ceremonies (please find enclosed the list of songs). However, if you will be bringing your own music (CD OR IPOD) , I will need the song list and the order they should be played, it means which for the entrance, while saying vows/signature(if required) and the ending.

    • 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.
