Your story sounds a little like mine! I was finally proposed to after dating for 5 years. It ended up being well worth the wait ( after the fact! hit.gif ) I got engaged near the end of December and I have everyone asking me when the date is! Geez-the pressure! I am also a school teacher along with the rest of my family, so the summer months will have to do with the scheduling factor! Have you found any interesting resorts, yet? Keep us updated!

Wow! You guys weren't kidding about the friendly part. Haha. We're hoping to have about 25 people at our wedding/vacation extravaganza. More likely, we're looking at a max of 30. One of our biggest concerns is keeping it cost friendly for our guests, but still fun and clean and low-stress. I'm not much of a gazebo girl, I'd much rather have my ceremony on the beach.


We do have a couple children attending - one of my cousins will be 13 and my little sister and two other cousins will be 15. Our first niece/nephew (!!) will be there as well, and about 1 year old at the time of the wedding. So at least there won't be any little kids to entertain, since all persons under 18 will either be too young or too old to need special "child" activities.


All things told, we're starting out by looking at all-inclusives. The best option I've found so far is the Riu resorts - either in Mexico or DR. They're relatively inexpensive, but still have tons of things for a wide range of different personality types. I know some of you are Riu brides, and I'd love to pick your brains! We're still looking for other options though, so my mind is wide open.

    • 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.
