We head to the Cape and it is a beautiful day. It's about an hour and a half ride to Falmouth from where we live in Worcester. Mike loves the Christmas Tree Shop so I thought for sure that would be our first stop, but he said, "let's go drive by the beach first." This should have been my first clue, but I didn't catch on. We drove by one of the places we are considering for our reception and stopped at the beach at the end of the road (Surf Drive beach, Jackie). It isn't the most beautiful beach on the Cape, but it was a beautiful day and there actually weren't that many people. We got out of the car and sat down on a small wall and just chit-chatted for a few minutes.

That's my story! I hope it makes sense. I don't have a good picture of the ring yet, but it looks just like the one in my avatar. It was custom made and EXACTLY what I wanted!!
Oh Kate thats a great beach, right of shore drive right? I live in Mashpee right next to New Seabury the raw bar Mashpee Commons area if your familar. What a beautiful day to get engaged!!! Ryan and I went out to dinner in woods hole wear we had our first date and then he took me to Old Silver beach it was cold and rainy but I didnt care.

If you need any help at all please let me know. I dont know how familir you are with Cape Cod weddings but I have been to to many to count at this point and definitly could help you "review" wise. I dont think you could pick a location that If I at least havent been to a wedding there I know someone who has that can give a decent opinion.
One of my two favorite places for cape cod weddings is (same owner) either the Flying Bridge in Falmouth or the Connameset in Falmouth. Both are beautiful. The Flying Bridge is right on the water and the Connameset has a more antique barn feel to it. They both offer the same food choices and let me tell you hands down their food is the best out of any other venu on Cape that I have been to for a wedding. They have whats called "stations" no its not a buffet but just food stations throughout the reception area. A raw bar which is fabulous, a prime rib station, a pasta station, a salad station, etc. They never run out of food and it is to die for.
I believe there is valet parking at both places too. Both places are very close to hotels. I stayed overnight at the Coonameset once with the bride-to-be the night before her wedding and they totally pampered her the next day while she was getting ready.
Anyways if you need anything let me know I'd be happy to help!

    • 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?
