Bridal Shower Day!

Recommended Posts

Wish me luck. I fought this one tooth and nail but totally lost. I didn't want a bridal shower at all 1. because I get anxiety about this kind of stuff I don't feel very comfortable being the center of attention. and 2. I just felt bad that people were spending all this money to come to our DW and than to have them spend more on bridal gifts just makes me feel bad.

 

Nevertheless my friends and family insisted that either I comply with their wishes to have a bridal shower and I be let in on everything or I could refuse a bridal shower and they would surprise me with one anyways.

 

Well I hate surprises so I decided to be "OK" with the bridal shower thing.

Alright so here we are the big day and I'm so nervous!

jackie, my advice is have a glass of champagne right beforehand cheesy.gif

 

i felt the same way about showers, and was told whether i wanted them or not i was getting them (already had one in mexico with FI's family & friends, and I have two more to go here in the US in june!), so i figured by complying i could cut down on my anxiety at least with the surprise element. my stepmom made a genious suggestion that she and my friend host one of my showers at my new condo, so that not all the attention will be on me because a lot of people coming wont have already seen the new place. i thought this was great, and agreed to it right away. whatever you do, just remember to breathe and try to have a little fun!

    • 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?
