Help me plan my wedding

Ok...I really like the lunch reception!! I think that you should look into other restaurants for lunch after your 11AM ceremony. I think this is a great idea! If you do something like this you are going to cut out all the stress of doing the backyard gathering yourself. Even if you do just appetizers/drinks or drinks/desserts at your in law's your still going to have to get the plates/silverware, set up (you'll need chairs, tables, decor), what if it does rain (do you really want to chance it), etc, etc, etc. Even if you make it simple, it's still a lot of work. I really think the lunch idea is great. If you research to find something in your budget, everything is done for you. All you have to do is show up. I would simply leave it at that.


Good luck - let us know what you decide!

Glenda!!!! I'm so glad you are getting married. I concur with the rest of the girls. Ditch the Rehearsal Dinner. I love the idea of a cocktail party because it's so elegant and cost efficient at the same time. Usually with that sort of affair you don't need as many tables because most are up and mingling. Twinkling lights, lanterns, and tea lights would be wonderful and inexpensive as decor. Good luck sweetie!!!

I vote cut out the restaurant ($$$$$$!) and do a backyard thing. It just seems like more fun to me (maybe cause I would have one too many cocktails if I went)

    • 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?
