January 2009 Brides Post Here

Recommended Posts

sooooo....I am getting married on January 17, 2009 at the Barcelo Maya Palace. I think I just read that someone is getting married there on the 10th so we need to be in close contact in Jan :)

 

I ordered my dress last week. Wont be here until late November.

80 STD's went out two weeks ago. I posted them somewhere on here but dont know how to find and paste the link. Our website is up and running. I'm only using it for travel information, not cutesy things about us (don't have the time unfortunately to make it more than it is...in addition to planning a wedding im in the process of opening a restaurant....arggggh) Feel free to check us out at Joy Arnold & Derrick Russell's Wedding Website - WedQuarters. We are going on a site visit at the end of June because the lack of communication with the TA has me slighlty worrried...but also because we need a vacation! I imagine that once I return, I wil have a whole set of planning projects for me to worry about. I am going to send out invites only to those who have booked...will do sometime in late October. Why? because I love the excitement :)

We have our first 4 people booked and I am sooo excited!!! :)

 

I'm thinking we are going to go to the printer sooner rather than later to order the invitations, since half my family thinks my STD's were the invitations LOL.

 

We are sending out between 140-150 invitations. Most are to "and Family" and that brings our number to over 300. We're expecting 50-75 people :) If we get more...Awesome! We are very much "the more the merrier" type people, so we are the weird people who don't mind when guests are like "can I bring...."

 

I'm soooosooo excited but am not allowed to talk to FI about anything, we had a huge fight the other night because he thinks I'm going "overboard" even though I've yet to do anything other than talk LOL So I figured I'd just keep talking to all you ladies.

 

We were going to look at BM dresses this thursday, but plans changed and we are going next thurs.

    • 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.
