Same here... I emailed Erika(WC) to see what she says but Im thinking she's going to say they both have to booked which then means the vendor fee is cheaper.  Let me know what your dj says regarding bringing an asst or something b/c I havent officially booked a dj yet.

I'm fairly certain my photographer is coming solo and I'm going to check on my DJ right now. Errr...... wasted money drives me craazzzzzyyy!

Ok girls.... I'm sorry I just have to vent for a moment.... Up until today I was under the impression everyone was on board with our DW. Well, my FI family (mainly his mothers side of the family) are canceling left and right and his mother is really taking it personally bc the people canceling are her siblings (my FI's aunts/uncles). So she says to me "I really wish you were just getting married here!" WHAT??? ummm...im sorry.... you're mad at ME that YOUR family is canceling?? the kicker is that NOONE else lives in NC on my side or my FI's side except us and my soon to be inlaws. point being- people would have to travel either way!!! oh that just rubbed me the wrong way and really pissed me off!! anyone out there that can relate??

Yes I can. I was getting the same thing from my MIL. She had asked why did I have to do Mexico. Why not DR because that's where they are from. So you'd travel there but not to Mexico? She kept bringing up different resorts like I was going to change it or something. My FIL pretty much came to my defense, he said to her just let them be, it's their wedding let them do it where they want to do it. Very aggravating!!! Can totally relate. I'm still dealing with the comments here and there. But just hang in there just remember its your day and about celebrating your union.

Thank you for responding and understanding! You are so right... This is. OUR day. We totally feel that way and have not taken any "declines" or "cancels" personally. Thanks for the positive words! And... Same to you! Just enjoy planning your day and don't worry about your MIL :)

Thanks, RachelTX. I've heard that sometimes you could do both...the legal plus the catholic ceremony. Am I wrong? why couldn't you do both. I am so confused. :(
I have to say, I have also recently been going nuts over the ceremony. We are having a legal ceremony but I am so not ok with the required script for that. Not only does it not include vows of ring exchange but there's no religious part to it whatsoever. Then l saw through the lomas sight that you can have a minister for $500. I'm already paying for the judge... I just want to have a legal ceremony but with a script that is nice- not the awful one they say is required.

    • 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?
