Like Amy said below... GOOGLE! Gotta love it :) I was writing my vows last night and was looking at the suggestions on the knot and they were actually really helpful - Wedding Vows & Readings: 20 Tips for Writing Your Own Wedding Vows ? Wedding Planning ? Wedding Ceremony - By TheKnot.com

We're also writing our own ceremony and vows. For the ceremony part we've taken a lot of ideas from "The Wedding Ceremony Planner." It's got TONS of ideas in it for wording.

I hadn't heard of this until you and amyb mentioned it. I just googled it and LOVE it! We might just have to revise our ceremony a bit to include this. Thanks ladies!!

Grrrrrr, that's so frustrating!!!! The things they think they can get away with!

FI is mega, mega stressed about money so that doesn't help.

 

The wedding seems to have lost all feeling and emotion and like it's just one big stress! I know it's just right now it feels like that, and it will get better, but as the time gets closer and money gets tighter and tighter, this is becoming less fun sad.gif

 

Sorry to moan....I know you guys will/can cheer me up!

You are definitely not the only one out there going through this!! It seems like as the wedding gets closer and closer, FI and I grow farther apart. We both know that it's just the never-ending, months-long stress finally taking its toll, but still it sucks smile27.gif

 

It doesn't help that he's working CRAZY hours right now, like 9am-11:30pm, so he's not around to help with all this little stuff that's left at the end. He really wants to be here and would rather be helping me, so I give him credit for that. I just want this all to be done so I can sip some Mexican cocktails and soak up the sun!!!!

Yikes! I haven't had too many wedding nightmares yet, but my dreams are wedding, wedding, wedding. And God help me if I wake up at all...I'll never get back to sleep b/c my brain goes into overdrive.

I am so livid - they are trying to blame it all on Francisco who is no longer the WC at the hotel. We went on a site visit and they are trying to say that becuase he didn't leave any notes in "our file", etc. that we cannot have this space - um, no. I am livid. My TA is trying to work this out, but I may need to do it myself.

 

Azul Beach brides - do any of you have a print out of the reception options before they recently changed them? Since I didn't think they would screw with me, I never thought to print out the options that were available back in November! I am supposed to get married in 6 weeks - yes, 36 days. are you freaking kidding me?!

This is such crap Suzanne!!!!!! I thought it was the Terrace they were trying to take from you not Chill. Why wouldn't they give you Chill? It's a smaller restaurant from my understanding. And besides, now that they won't give the Terrace based on the argument that it's their largest seating area and they can't afford to close it down, I would think Chill would be one of their fallbacks.

 

Unfortunately, the private reception options I was emailed from Tiffany way back when were: The beach, the Wave Lounge, the Blue Terrace. I have nothing saying Chill. But based on Amyb's answer, it seems we're all told different things.

 

And yes, it absolutely SUCKS that they wait until this close to our dates to throw this at us. As if us brides are not stressed enough so close to our dates!

That made him laugh at least...

 

At least most of you didn't wakeup to an earthquake to the new 4am (still feels like 3am) this morning and then layed awake in bed until my alarm went off at 5am.

Yeah, the excitement hasn't quite kicked in yet. I do have my moments of pure joy and elation but they're not as often as I'd like.

 

Sooooo glad you're okay from the earthquake!!!

I just have to say: My BD shoot was sooooooo fantastic!! Thank you everyone for all the encouragement! I saw some of the preliminary pics and I have to say that I look pretty damn hot wink.gif I wasn't nervous in the slightest. In fact, I was excited and overjoyed at finally getting to do this. Now if only I could respond that way to the wedding, lol.

 

My shoot was 1.5 hours and we had the complete run of a B&B just outside of town. Antique furniture and couches, giant beds, large windows--I can't wait to show off the pictures when I get them!

Lolo I knew knew knew you'd come back raving and put everyone at ease at how perfect your day was!!!! You had such a ROCKING dress. I dont even remember you talking about it. I love the pix of you and hubby - your contrasting looks are perfect for eachother.

 

Our GMs are wearing tan shirts like yours and I was concerned about the color (or blandness) b/c I had not seen any weddings in tan, but it looked great.

 

Your hair & make up looks super as well - but i think you had friends doing it right? I mean, that is your profession & all!

 

Glad you had perfect weather and everything was wonderful. I keep thinking wedding at 430 and reception ending at 11 - I'll get bored - but I know, I suppose it does go fast, even with a small amt of people in mexico!

And Crista, now I want pashminas.... LOL need to stop NOW! :)

 

And Suzanne, how many guests do you have? Its so annoying but my work is the same way - you have to get nasty in order to get what you want - sucks that you have to go through this sad.gif

Question for my American ladies... For my shopping trip next week I'm looking for a TTD. Is David's bridal a good place to look? I really don't want to spend much. Today I received an email about the $99 sale. Is it worth it to take the time to check out David's Bridal?

 

Lolo's your TTD pic's really inspired me!

lolo,

Welcome back!! Gorgeous grown, fab pics and soooo happy for you!! My FI liked the pics as well. He liked the in TTD photos in the street. I love it when he gets excited and adds input. What package did you choose because your set up was perfect! Did you have a private reception and where. If this is toooo many questions let me know. Can't wait for the detailed review!!! Congrats Lolo!!!

 

Sorry ladies this may be so redundant but how soon should I make definite plans with the coordinators. It seems they change there minds about the terms often so should i lock in fees now or wait. What packages did you use and money saving ideas us 2011 brides look out for?

Interesting. I was told it would still cost me if I brought my own sand, so I was like wtf, may as well use their's.

The whole day seems like a dream....I can't belive it's overfrown.gif
Welcome back and congrats! Your pics are amazing :). You're a beautiful bride. And the bolded sentence is key. Completely true!!

    • 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?
