That took me forever to find out what it meant and if it wasn't for Tammy B. I still wouldn't know. LOL.
LOL I am SO clueless when it comes to those internet abbreviations! LOL is pretty much the extent of my knowledge!

My resort gave us one of these and it was really helpful.

I made a detailed list... and then actually DREW out a blueprint of where I wanted everything to go as well as attached a few pictures.

 

I felt like an ass after I sent it off to her, but she actually really appreciated the specific instructions.

maybe a word doc is good, that way you can attach the pics, and have sections per item. I did an initial word doc that I sent Maye, but its pretty much all going to change now because I decided on different colors etc...

Alyssa- who cares if you look like a control freak? You don't have to be around this person for the rest of your life, so who cares if they think you are over the top! You WILL though remember all the details for the rest of your life, so ensure they are right. :)

I made a Word document with subsections for each event (welcome dinner, reception, reheasal, ceremony) and included all details in a bullet format. Things that I had questions about were highlighted in red. I included pictures of things she needed to see. My WC was so cool, she responded by sending me the same sheet back with her answers in a different color. It worked great. I am such a control freak, but it works great for wedding planning.

I created a word doc with some questions and pictures and whatever she wouldn't answer I would make it red and send it back to her. It seemed to work well.

great post alyssa. This is helpful. I don;t consider myself a Type A person (like that birthday thingy said I am this morning.)

BUT, when it comes to this I will probably be following ina few footsteps here by sending pictures of everything we have discussed prior about the wedding...

    • 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?
