I looked into getting a chuppa on the beach because I love the look blowing in the wind with the white drapes. However I am not getting a resort package so its $900 for the basic arch! I decided to go with floral urns that we can reuse at the reception. Plus yeah, bridesmaids, groomsmen, bride and groom, beach in the background makes for some pretty awesome decor.

 

@@Ksarnowski, I'm in the same boat. You don't get as much out of these without seeing all the pics! And you can't do that until you get to 150 posts or pay $30! I hate it, but I'm trying!

I'm doing white fabric draped on the inside of the gazebo, a chandelier, and 2 big flower arrangements hanging on both sides of the front

We opted for the white fabric covered arch, decorated with flowers that match my bouquet. I purchased some glass globes for the reception that hang from the trees with a tea light candle inside. I am going to use a few of those on the arch sans candle.

We're renting two white sheers to cover the gazebo and getting two small flower corsages to hang on each side. We get white wooden chairs so we'll stick to that and I might get some pomanders for the end chairs or something along those lines. We figured the ocean will give the scene some color and the bridesmaid dresses . I saw some videos of past weddings at our venue and I found that the simpler the decor the nicer it looked

Are you all getting arch packages with each resort? Or are you bringing your own decor/tulle to decorate the arch? I haven't quite figured out which option would be better .. obviously to bring your own is cheaper, but I don't know how much I will need to get my desired look! Ahh!

We kept ours simple but upgraded a few things.  I'm actually really glad we did because the bulk of our pics are at our ceremony and I think it would have looked plain otherwise.  But I don't like too much colour because than I think it can get a bit busy

 

We had the white draping (complimentary) then added a crystal curtain in the back, chandelier, gold tiffany chairs, rose petals and faux bouquets attached to the aisle chairs.  My mom now wishes we had an aisle runner too but I'm fine w/ the way the floor looks

we're doing some white sheers draped over and a small flower arrangement on each side with blush pink and ivory roses.

    • 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.
