My FI and I thought it would be cute and funny to have a picture of a clay statue we had made of us at Cancun from last year's trip as our postage stamp for our invitations. It also goes great with our beach-themed wedding. My mom said said since the statue has us wearing bathing suits and we are holding alcoholic drinks, some people may get offended (his family is what she is referring to). It's not even our bodies!! We were wearing shirts and not drinking when they took the picture of us to make the statue. I think it would be cute and a fun way to add our personal touch to the invites. What do you all think? Is it offensive?

People can be offended about all kinds of things, but personally I think this is so cute and not offensive at all! I mean if the photo was of you two in real life, maybe, but it's basically just a cartoon. I would say go for it!

I'd have a hard time believing anyone would be offended by that. I think it is really cute..but your FI should have a good idea of what his family finds acceptable or not and maybe go by what is gut feeling is.

He does, but he doesn't really care what they think. He's had to learn how to brush them off because of some of their old school ways of thinking. We've been in situations where they come over his house to use the pool and they all where shirts over their bathing suits. So, I wasn't too sure how they would react to the stamp.

I think it is super cute! But from what you posted before about your FIL I guess it just depends on whether or not YOU care if they are offended.

    • 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.
