  1. Well don't feel bad about not getting to it soon ... it's been over a year and I haven't gotten rid of anything yet (also drives my husband crazy). I had/have high hopes of using some of it ... like the starfish I think I'll use to decorate a photo wall ... but I do need to part with some of it ... great reminder LOL Â P.S. Kendall ... second for me too and my daughter loves looking through anything I have left from marriage to her daddy ... (lost some of it in a house fire). I too kept my dress but instead of possibly making her feel obligated to wear it ... I'm thinking of making her s
  2. We decided to get legally married before going to Mexico just to avoid the hassle and expense of marrying there. We had a few friends who wanted to come to JOP since they couldn't make the trip and Ken's uncle happen to be staying with us so he joined us too. We did NOT take our children or tell them because I didn't want it to be confusing to them. Some family members asked about the legalities of getting married in Mexico and I told them what we were doing because I didn't want to lie to them. Â This is become a pretty heated topic on some of the etiquette sites ... some feel it's disho
  3. OK ... I too have read through this whole thread and I think it sounds like you're headed in the right direction. At first my husband told me to do whatever I wanted and to just tell him where to be and what time (I'm not kidding LOL). Then, once he saw me planning ... he started to give me his opinion on things. This was fine with me ... as long as it was what I wanted!!! Then I realized that it was just as important to him as it was to me ... he'd just never planned anything like this before. Once I asked him what was really important to him to have at our wedding and reception he only
  4. The pics are all amazing! When I read the post title I thought you meant shot with a Flip camera Gorgeous couple and great photos! *SmiLes* Suzanne
  5. This whole thread hit home with me! The night we got engaged my husband (then fiance) called his mom ... and he told her we had been dreaming of a destination wedding. Her reaction? "Why on earth do you want to do that?" Urgggh! Totally put me in a mood 20 mins after he proposed. We went to dinner ... had a wonderful time ... and we decided right then and there that we were going ahead with our plans. His whole family had that same bad attitude and mine was totally excited for us. In the end my sister, brother-in-law, and their grown kids were with us and I wouldn't have changed a thing! I kep
  6. Beautiful bride ... great wedding and gorgeous pictures ... CONGRATULATIONS! They were so fun to look through *huGs*
  7. Awesome deal Misti is running right now: "Today is 7/13. Sometimes "7" is lucky for people, other times "13" is their lucky number. So I've got all bases covered-- for all lucky brides, I will give an additional 25% off ANY package (including the destination wedding packages!) if they book within the next 7 days and 13 hours (by 7/21 at 5:30 am). This means their package would only be $375!!!!!" That really is a great deal! Her site: http://www.studiodouglasweddings.com/ Her blog: Expressions By Misti

I just LOVE the "pay-it-forward" atmosphere on this forum ... and I am committed to sticking around to help for many years to come. Misti was one of the best decisions we made ... period.

I don't know how to post a review: do I just start a new thread? Chantal I put the actual review thread here: Wedding Reviews - Best Destination Wedding Forum and then came back here and linked to it ... because I know I lived in this fo

I wish I'd done them before we left so I could present his book to him while we were there ... but this was still awesome! I never felt uncomfortable at all ... and I just knew she's know how to minimize and maximize LOL ... too funny.

Jess Thanks! Being so hard on myself ... I was of course most "worried" about the BD shots ... and Misti is a genius! LOL Yes, that was in my room at Dreams Tulum ... Misti moved furniture, took down pictures, rolled up rugs ... she really knows what she's doing and made it very comfortable and easy for me.
