It's getting close ladies....I'm really excited. How about anyone elsehuh.gif? All my stuff is pretty much ready too but a busy month in the works with dress fittings, hair appts and my bachelorette in the beginning on jan!!! I can't believe its almost time...i've been planning this for a whole year!
It wasn't hard at all...just pricey!!
We had to make sure we had our birth certificates, then we printed off a single affidavit and brought both (with our passports) to the Dominican consulate in Toronto. I'm sure it would be more of a pain if you had to bring them to a lawyer to get notarized if you could not bring them in person yourself.

I can't beleive it cost you $700 !!!! We are in Ottawa so we went to the DR Embassy and it only cost us $450 CAD for the exact same thing! What a rip off for you! It would almost be worth the trip to Ottawa!

No..it's because we are getting married at the RIU in the DR. They require that the BCs be legalized as well...an extra $100 each. Although one of the girls I know getting married at the Bachata didn't get hers legalized...but they told us we had to & we went right to the consulate (same as Ottawa...it's just not the main office). I wasn't going to argue that we didn't need it legalized...I'd rather have it & not need it than need it & not have it!!

What I am really frusterated with is choosing a veil. Can't find one! Ugh!
I need to work on finding a veil also. I kind of know what I want in my head, but I'm not sure if I'm going to find it and not pay an arm and a leg. I'm going to worry about this at my 2nd fitting which is the 18th.

Today I got my MOH, BM and Bride tank tops made. I also blinged my bikini bottom with "Bride" on it. I printed out the recipe for our favors. I have to buy a paper cutter and I'm waiting because I have a coupon for 40% off at Michaels that I can't use until Sunday. My goal is to have all of the tags for our favors/ placecards done on Sunday.

I also wrapped the handles of my fans today, but ran out of ribbon so I still have more than half to do. I really under estimated the amount of ribbon each fan would take. So, back out to buy more tomorrow!

And, I have a real problem NOT wearing my wedding band when no one is around! I'm going to have to have it cleaned or something before we head to Mexico so no one knows! smile120.gif

Yeah, that makes sense! I don't blame you for not chancing it!

I am having my seamstress make my veil for me....I didn't want to spend $200 for a relatively simple one, so she said she would make one for me for $50 plus the cost of the lace. Good deal! Can't complain!

Nicole, so glad your shower went well!

 

Well, I pulled the trigger and ordered my veil online. It was only $130 total, so not terrible. I can return it if it is not right, but sure hope it is the one! What a load off! Now I just need to focus on the wedding ceremony, menus placecards and tabletents.

Yikes! It is getting close!

I feel like I've accomplished so much (must be due to Amanda's firecracker gift I got!)...

 

We bought FI's shirt (2 of them actually~ he tends to get messy lol)

Had FI's finger sized and ordered his ring.

Wrapped the handles of the fans that I have with ribbon.

Started my placecards/favors~ I would've finished but ran out of double sided tape.

Made our photo sharing cards.

Started our Welcome brochures. They just need some tweaking before they can be printed.

Made the sign we need for our cupcake table.

Ordered boxes for our guests to take cupcakes back to their room.

Ordered our GM gift (an engraved moneyclip).

 

I am so exited that FI finally has a complete outfit to wear. I was stressing!smile36.gif

    • 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?
