Yeah, if you are having a longer wedding that makes sense, our ceremony is only going to be 15-20 minutes, then Depending on whether they start the cocktail hour immediately or if they delay it till six, I will probably take pictures in the free time and during part of the cocktail hour. I would get married earlier, but I do not want our guests to have to come to the wedding, and then entertain themselves for a few hours before the cocktail hour/dinner.

That was my dilemma too but after thinking it over agree with you...don't want people waiting around plus if it is a 5 o'clock wedding with cocktails right after there should be some awesome sunset pics during that time. Will probably get some first look pics beforehand.

That's what I'm thinking as well, and we are also going to do a first look to get some pictures in then! If I'm timing it out correctly, I should be able to take pics for about an hour, and still attend part of the cocktail hour. Although taking pics for an entire hour will possibly be you long for my FH, especially after the first look!

I can definitely understand that as well. I may have some kids at the wedding that are younger too.  i figured the parents would want to have a break, give them a nap etc. Ive been to a destination wedding before with a brreak between the ceremony and reception and it was good to grab a few drinks before. But again, personal preference! Both me and my FI hate being rushed so it works for us.

 

In the end its so hard to make these choices! A wedding at 4 would have been perfect for me but it wasnt an option :(

Yes with kids they would definitely want a break. Pic on tripadvisor of the plain set up of the beach ceremony. Really pretty! I'm hoping to get the secrets beach gazebo as we have no kids going but after seeing that pic would be ok with that too. With the divine package I picked the saxaphonist....hope we get some song suggestions as I can't seem to find any songs that I know he can play...

Hi Sandy - I don't know if you know but a sound system is included in the ceremony.  So if you aren't 100% sold on the saxophonist, you can just tell them no thank you and bring your ipod down if there is something else you had in mind :)

Ok, my wedding coordinator is Yeomandry Collado. Does anyone else have her? Also how long does it take for them to send you the spreadsheet?

@@alwalters625  I have her.  I got the spreadsheet pretty quick after booking.  But she takes 2-3 days to answer my emails. If you have the same package as me I could send it to you.

 I can definitely email it.  I have Divine as well (it just makes it easier to read for you because it outlines what is included).

 

I believe you fill it out and it actually generates the cost for you.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
