Hi ladies, just wanted to update you all with our wedding video plan --  Since we are having a long wedding week in Ixtapa, Mexico, I decided to get the app and 5 camera package so all my out of town guests can capture pre-wedding fun stuff all over the resort, as well as the ceremony and reception.

 

I especially wanted it because 20 of us are going spelunking and cave exploring as a post-wedding group activity,  and I know the footage from that is going to be PRICELESS :) 

 

I know my wedding is on the bigger side, but I definitely recommend your check out the different WeddingMix packages because they have a variety of based on the size of your wedding.

How fun! Do you like the place?  My father in law always rents a condo when we stay there so I've never done the all- inclusive vacation in Ixtapa. 

Me too!! We are staying at the Capella Ixtapa :)

I agree that a wedding video is super important!!! We originally decided to have a family member record the ceremony, but after much consideration we decided to get a professional to do it... We just thought it was too great a memory to have a amateur video completed.  

 

In my opinion it is worth the splurge IF you can afford it!!! We were willing to make cutbacks as necessary to fit it in our wedding budget!!

Mine is included with the package. We will be using an outside photographer and just let the resort do the video bc if it wasn't included I wouldn't bother with it....but I'll admit I kinda like the idea of having it

Still debating on the cost for one. Was thinking about having someone from our group record the events to save $

We decided not to have a video, its a big cost, for something we'll probably only watch a few times... I'm more of a photo person, I hate seeing and hearing myself played back on video!!!

We originally thought the video was the least important part of the wedding. Then I found some old videos from when my brother and I were kids. These things were priceless! and that's when I realized that even though the pictures are nice, it's the videos that are so much fun to watch years down the road. I think in a way they're more special than the pictures. We decided to cut down on the pictures a bit and spend a little on a videographer :). I don't think we will regret it.

    • 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.
