Hello future NJ Brides!! How did I just find this thread?!?!

 

Anyway, I grew up and lived in Kearny, Hudson County and presently living in East Rutherford, Bergen County.

 

I actually booked the Imperia in Somerset for my wedding. However I eventually was laid off for a while and then had to move unexpectedly because I was renting an apartment in a 2 family house and it went into foreclosure and the bank wanted me and my FI out. Plus other financial set backs that come with life on occasion.

 

After thinking about my wedding situation I realized a DW was the best thing for us! I was tired of trying to make other people happy and having a wedding in NJ would just be impossible for me financially. So we cancelled the Imperia and are working on getting married at Le Blanc Spa and Resort in Cancun, Mexico!! My fiancé and I are prepared to have hardly anyone come to the wedding and we are just fine with it. We are just looking forward to being in a beautiful location and getting married. That is the only thing that matters to us at this point.

 

So glad to see so many other NJ Brides planning a DW!!

Hi Pazzesca! So glad you found us. I considered a NJ wedding for a hot second but my FI and I really wanted to buy a house. We were fine with having a DW as long as our parents could come, everyone else is a bonus! Are you able to come to our meet up in June??

Welcome Pazzesca...

Sorry to hear about your wedding cancellation. But I'm a firm believe in "everything happens for a reason" so I'm sure you're better off with a beautiful low key DW!

I too live in Kearny by the way. LOL

 

Jerseykitten-great idea! Thanks.

Hi Pazzesca! We're neighbors!!! I'm in Lyndhurst :-)

 

I think most of the girls on this forum will agree, a DW is the way to go!! I planned my older sister's wedding in NJ since she lives in North Carolina and the amount of money spent was out of CONTROL! I'm sorry you had to cancel your first one, but like Jenise said, everything happens for a reason...

 

You're going to love this forum! Welcome to your new addiction!

    • 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.
