We did not hire a videographer but instead we brought our GoPro camera. We had a few friends hold our GoPro and I was really happy with it. They were able to get our entire ceremony so I was able to watch it from when it all started till the very end. It was so nice! :) If you have a GoPro camera, I recommend one for your wedding. The only thing I really regret (well I completely forgot) was getting some group photos from the photographer. I forgot to get both sides of the families together for a photo.

 

Our private reception was awesome too. I am so glad we went with it. We extended an extra hour for the reception and it ended around 9:30pm. It worked out really well and it gave our guests (who didn't stay on the resort) to hang out before their day pass expired.

wow you looked gorgeous! Congratulations :D

 

Edit: I just saw the pictures from the gropro. I loved your guestbook, so cute :)

 

When we were planning our wedding at Gran Caribe I loved the gazebo, it looks great when everything is set up! 

 

Your pictures give me a good idea for how things will be set up on the tables and how many people could I realistically fit in each table. Did you have 9 or 10 per table?

Thank you!

 

The gazebo was a perfect location because we weren't too far from the beach or the restrooms.

 

We did 10 per table (round) and everyone was able to sit down and talk with each other. We had the option of doing one huge table but I wanted the table to split so we could have room for dancing.

    • 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.
