Award Winning Martoca Weddings $$ saving Tips for a Vallarta Bride

Recommended Posts

Hello Brides,

I cannot stress enough how important it is for your budgeting purposes to determine how many guests will actually attend the wedding. I feel so bad for brides who calculate the wedding budget based on 60 guests who in good faith say they will attend and then 30 guests actually book the trip and show up! Unfortunately for the bride this causes a huge dissapointment not only emotionally but strictly in budgeting terms. To all friends of brides and brides themselves, please make sure you can make the trip before you commit because the 100 or so dollars per person wasted on no shows could be the difference between a simple but tasteful wedding and a superb, highly decorated wedding and with the money saved the brides could even have enough for souvenirs and cool entertainment like Mariachis, Taco Bar, extra lighting and many more goodies. 100 to 250 dollars a person is a range which is common in weddings for catering and table decorations so if 30 guests do not come it could mean a difference of 3,000 up to 10,000 dollars in budget for catering and table decorations. So please watch this part of your planning. I think it is the most common mistake in budgeting.





For those who cannot make the trip just let them know there will be a night out to toast the couple and have a send off party at their expense obviously since you are paying for the wedding and they should undertand. 






Good luck and save money :),

    • 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.
