We are getting married June 14, 2016. I am needing ideas on what people do for their guest activities.

Is everyone planning a welcome party? If so are you paying for private cocktail hour, or having everyone just meet at bar? We are wanting to do group excursion one day. Our group will range from 1-75 years old so not sure what will work for that range.

Are you offering guests one paid activity and list of optional ones for other days that are non paid? I thought about putting list of local ideas from golf tee costs to snorkel in the oot packet so guests can pick their own.

We are hosting a private catamaran cruise (3 hours, open bar and snacks) on Friday.  Outside of that and the typical wedding stuff (ceremony, photos, reception), everyone is on their own.  

 

We made a list of potential excursions and put them on our website, but we are not offering to make arrangements for anything else.  It's too much to manage and we figured people wanted some time to do their own thing.

Hi brides! Congrats to everyone on their upcoming weddings! We have booked for October 2016, and we are still waiting to receive confirmation on date, time and locations. We still haven't received any cost details about services offered.

 

Does anyone know how much the bridal suite is and how to reserve it?

Can you extend your private reception?

Is there a cost to set up decorations you are bringing?

 

Thanks :)

The contract is 150 for suite. I just sent it in. I emailed the spa directly to ask and they sent me paperwork. We are extending our reception by a hour- you just pay the 12/18pp for alcohol. You pay based on initial number of people, not on how many stay during the extended time. I asked, just in case people want to leave early.

 

I'm curious about setup costs too. My WC said 20% of their cost would apply to things I bring other than favors, menus, table numbers. Wondered if it was the personalization part that allows it to be used free.

I just got an email saying the suite is confirmed for June. I have been emailing Vanessa, she is the spa manager.  spa.nolpc@nowresorts.com

Thanks you so much! I really appreciate the info! I'm dying to get the pricing for extras from the resort to start planning.

 

If I hear anything I'll be sure to post :)

 

Thanks again!

@@AshleyNYC323  That's so awesome! My fiancé and I are thinking of doing a private catamaran cruise too! We just got a quote from Sanael. Who are you thinking of booking with? 

 

That's exactly who we are using.   We really wanted things to be simple... this is going to be our gift to everyone, vs. doing a tote bag or any other kind of favor.  I can't wait!

@@AshleyNYC323 OMG! That's so awesome! How is your planning going? We're planning on doing a reception on the boat! Isn't it so cool how they can pick up your guests on the beach at the resort? Unfortunately I'm staying at a resort where they can't do this.

It is cool - that is a big part of why we picked them ... we just want everything to be super simple.

Our planning is pretty much done!    We have all of our final RSVPs and everyone's final payment is due Jan 15.

After that, I just need to move across the country, find a new job, find a house.... lol

Our life situation is funny so the wedding is actually last on my list right now.

 

How about yours???

    • 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.
