Were any girls married on 6/18? I saw a bride in a bathroom and so wanted to ask her if she was a BDW bride but I didn't want to disturb her or sound like an idiot if she wasn't!

The only items they need to confirm the date is the travel manifest which it appears Victoria has if she has confirmed your day! Congratulations, March will be here before you know it!
Aww thanks so much for answering my question. This site is so helpful. It's so hard getting a response from the WC so you guys set my mind at rest :o)

does anyone know what food options come with the strawberry passion package??

I cant believe how fast time passes when you have a date- how freaky! Also, is there anyone who brought their own table decorations? What did you bring and was it easy to pack? were trying to find something creative but not too expensive...

 

Thanks!

Hey Ashley! :) Allison brought polished glass in her colors which was really compact, inexpensive, but really filled the tables. It looked really awesome and was unbreakable unlike trying to get vases down there. Here is a pic:

So the Asparagus Soup is AMAZING!! Honestly, one of the best soups I have ever had and was probably the part of the meal that the guests were raving about most.

Thanks so much! I was really curious what we had to choose from- i hope that surf and turf isnt a seasonal thing cause that looks great! And i hear the pineapple cake is reeealy good too! Thanks for the picture of the table michelle- does anyone know, do they give you the candles on the table or do you have to rent them...should i bring my own? Do i need to bring candle holders?

I had the surf and turf at the wedding I photographed there. It was in February, so you shouldn't have a problem (it was delicious by the way!).

Can any one help me out with a silly question?

We are able to have a nonlegal Interactive Blessing Ceremony?? Am I getting this lingo correct?

If so, do we have to option between a JOP or a minister?

Anyone who had this type of ceremony, do you have any suggestions at to which one to choose. We wrote our own vows.

17 days until the big day:)

Thank you so much!!!

    • 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.
