I'm giddy - went to the NOW site today and on the wedding's page, my date now shows as 'partially booked' (it was wide open before!!!)

 

But a question - does anyone have Yeomandry as their coordinator? I was dealing with Michelle MacPherson at first (who was AMAZING in answering questions and getting us booked) but now I'm worried - Michelle was so great at responding, and I don't know what to expect from Yeomandry.....

I need to book my time soon, I'm considering paying the 100 dollars to book the "free" wedding and then in a few weeks being like never mind I want the divine package and paying the difference! Has anyone done this?

Hey everyone!

 

We're booked for May 1st, 2015 @ Now, fountain ceremony and pool reception!

 

We have Luisa as our WC and so far has been good, but can take days for responses. Like a lot have said on the threads, they deal with 3 weddings a day so our weddings aren't top priority this many months ahead of time (unfortunately!)

 

Love connecting with people to try and figure this whole thing out so by all means message :)

 

Happy planning,

Dana

Has anyone decided what they are going to do for centerpieces?  Are you just going to pay them for them, or are you going to diy and bring them with you.  When I asked about simple centerpieces that would be 3 candles at different levels they told me that would be 100 dollars per table?

I think I'm bringing mine with me - I'm debating either doing a coloured plastic charger plate with sand, shells, tea lights and a lantern in the middle, or a plastic floating candle bowl.  I can't justify the resort cost for centrepieces.

 

I will probably bring tablecloths/runners/or draping fabric for the centre too.

 

What I have heard other brides do is rent the vase from the resort and put the bridal party bouquets in during the reception?

we are going to pay for ours, personally I don't think there worth $65 each but I just can't imagine traveling with 10-12 glass vases. They are pretty expensive with pricing!!

@@KAT2015 and @@DR2015 I know they are so expensive, Kat we are thinking of doing the same, bowl with beads water and floating candles, and just packing them since we will most likely fly southwest. DR2015, if I needed that many centerpieces I would probably just pay for them as well, we only invited 35 though so I'm thinking 3-4 tables/centerpieces

Yeah, it helps that I only have one brother and he only has one sister.  We wanted super small and intimiate as I get kinda shy when all the attention is on me.  We kept it as immediate family and close friends.  I am going to go ahead and send out invitations anyways, but we already will know who is coming as we set up a group package and got a great rate for anyone who pays their hundred dollar deposit soon!!

    • 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.
