I booked our date, sent our agreement, and that was it. I also feel like she has a TON of people to deal with so I really don't feel like bothering her at all since were not getting married until April. I don't really have any special requests or anything so I guess we just plan everything once we are there? Anyone know how that usually works?
That's basically how I have been. Not really bothering her at all. She emailed me recently and I threw some of my plans into my response to her stating that I just wanted to give her a heads up on what we were thinking of doing ie beach reception, pastor york and dj mannia. Also stated that I know that we will plan everything when we see her. No emails since then. I think if we are all planning the destination wedding then we can't expect to have total control over everything as we would expect at home. But that's the point, right?! :) I will be giving my update report in a couple weeks to let you know if there is anything you should request in advance!! :)

Yeah, I saw the shoes and decided that green would be my colour! I don't have any bridesmaids (just my brother) and I love green, so why not!! I do love them though!! When I figure it out again and find my camera I can take a picture!

Sap, I LOVE your fans...nice job! Did you order them plain from somewhere and do the details yourself or did they come like that?

I have a question for those of you who did/plan to do a TTD session with the resort photographer: what are the prices?? One of our guests is a wedding photographer so she'll be doing our photographs on our wedding day but I thought about booking a session a couple mornings later with the resort photography since TTD is such a specific photography concept and she's never done that before. Anyone have the package prices from the resort for this? Thanks a bunch!

Ok.... So I just realized this today and I can't believe I didn't think of this when planning and booking.....

 

sorry if this it TMI but I need some opinions....

 

I am going to have my period the week I'm in Dominican...RRRR I can't believe I didn't plan around this....

 

So I was wondering.... there is a medication called Norethisterone that can be taken 3 days before expected menstruation and will delay it for about a week... I want to ask my doctor about it....

 

 

 

Do you think this is a good idea or should I just tough it out??

awe that sucks...kinda personal but are you taking the pill at all?? I am off of mine now but I used to just keep taking them without skipping that one week of "sugar pills" to prevent mine from starting if I was on vacation etc... and it always skipped it for that week until the next time came around :)

    • 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?
