What Is Your Wedding Wow Factor Going To Be?

Recommended Posts

We all know that a destination wedding in and of itself has a 'wow' factor!  I know that weddings are about celebrating love and family, but I still want to give my guests a little bit of the wow factor to have them talking for years to come.  So far for me, it will be the churro cart, mariachi, and a few little surprises during the ceremony (personal ones that I don't want my guy to find out about beforehand)! What are yours?

Great topic!  We found a great deal for a catamaran excursion as our favor.  During rehearsal dinner each setting will have a "ticket" with all the details for the catamaran excursion.

My epic dance moves. :P

 

Not sure yet. I'm having a Mariachi band play for cocktail hour and to have them come out right after the ceremony is over behind everyone and surprise them :)

 

Besides that, still trying to figure things out with our wedding coordinator. A lot of people are having the churro cart but that's not really our thing, so maybe we can do something different? I was even debating having our late lunch be pizza ordered from Dominos in playa del carmen LOL!!

The views from the Beach Palace Sky Terrace =) 

.... but really, I'm going to be following this thread to get some more ideas!

 

I wasn't originally planning on adding any Mexican-flare to my Cancun wedding but I'm starting to like the idea of adding some culture to the reception.... Or maybe the resort will even do some table-side drink/dessert prep/show for the right price?

We've been toying with the idea of doing a catamaran cruise. What company are you using?

We're having a cigar roller set up in a designated lounge area and hiring fire dancers!

 

Where are you getting the churro cart from?

    • 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.
