So far, Carolina has been super thorough and quick to respond. Sometimes, she responds within minutes!

Oh, what to do?
I suggest calling first thing in the morning - this is what i usually do and have success every time. Good luck, stay positive, its all going to work out

His name is Baby Grinchmas (Baby..cause that's what he came with...and he looks so much like the Grinch). Actually his full name is Baby Grinchmas Theodore Pugglehead....we call call him Baby G
Love Him :)
He is cute! I LOVE the name. He does look like happy Grinch!

Love him to death and think one may convert me into a dog lover....we'll see! LMAO at his name too!! Very creative...and long. Everyone thinks my FI's name is Theodore because his nickname is Theo.
I want english bulldog. I am in love with them. Just not ready for a dog yet... but I like the idea of it.

HAHA, heâ€s my husband now, no more FI! :) Thanks girl, I was concerned too about having to do it over and over again but it worked out great. My practicing all the time really helped. I took my time to make it perfect and got used to it. I also wrote it all down in the order I was to apply it in AND I watched wedding makeup video tutorials on YouTube.

Yes, Lady Di here on BDW used Mac down there I believe and her makeup is stunning! Sheâ€s also a very naturally pretty girl but you should ask her.



Woo hoo!!



Thank you very much! Itâ€s nice to have control and know exactly how you want to look on your wedding
HAHA DUH!!!! Sorry about that! I contacted Lady Di! Thanks for your help :)

I'm not working with Faye, but for what it's worth finding out about the reception locations was the one thing for me that took AGES for a response. (well, felt like ages anyways... probably only a couple weeks)

I stay away for about 2-3 days and it takes me two hours to catch up here! Ummm, yeah....lessoned learned and I won't let that happen again! LOL You ladies are BUSY! :-)

 

Before I start responding, I have a couple questions for you previous brides:

1) How far away from AS are the local markets/vendors in order to purchase Mexican trinkets and such for the OOT bags? Are they within walking distance or is AS smack dab in the middle of the jungle as I read elsewhere?

 

2) When and how did you ladies chose your reception site, especially since they say there are two weddings per day? Did you get to select the site or was it chosen for you based upon your party size? Also, how do they decide which wedding party gets first dibs on the reception site?

 

Thank you so much for helping me sort out the confusion that is settling in about the details. :-)

I bought a pair of spanx last summer for a wedding I was in at Nordstrom's. I'm not sure if that is near you but I know I paid less than $100 retail for the one that goes down to right above your knees and connects to your bra. Hope that helps you some!

The birthday, not the cupcakes:)

 

In terms of looking for updated packages...I really use this site as my measure. One of you girls mentions a sweet deal, I try my luck and ask for it. Sp far almost 3k saved. Hoping they will let me downgrade to free wedding package which (after adding on flowers) should be at least another $500-600 saved. I know I'll spend it elsewhere, but better than throwing it away on "extras" I will not use.

Happy Birthday to your baby! What a memorable milestone!

 

I too am BEYOND appreciative for this forum and all that it has taught me! I haven't tallied up how much we are saving, but I imagine it is a pretty penny! I am a frugal girl, so I feel you on feeling great about all the girls here and their invaluable help and tips!!!

I am so happy to be able to talk to other brides from A.S. My date would be April 25, 2011. I thought things would seem easier once I picked a resort lol, now we seem to have many more things to do, wedding packages, getting guests to pay on time to get the right rate etc. I feel like I might start driving my friends/co-workers and family crazy with wedding talk so i am happy to have this forum, you all know what I am going through!
Welcome and Congrats!!!! welcome.gif

I'm sorry....this would have made me let out a loud obnoxious sound at him. LOL Not a curse word, just a peculiar sound. LOL Hopefully you guys can come to an agreement on a nice color scheme. I've actually recently seen a really nice blue and green beach wedding that I never would have thought of but loved. PM me if you want the link and I will scrounge it up again!

We've all pretty much got the scoop on this now if you haven't got it covered yet. My TA said to qualify for that package you need to book a minimum of 7 nights for you and FI and also have 15 additional nights booked by your guests in any room class and you are golden for the Free package. Hopefully that helps!

I don't dress them up very often but the Dog Groomer will do it during the holidays and take their pics for a small fee. She is going to take a pic of them in Tuxes for my favor card!
Your story of your doggies just warmed my heart.

There are a few of us in this same boat. Several of my emails have gone unanswered by Fabio about who we have been reassigned to since Cecile has departed. As I told another bride, I will be happy to share as soon as I hear who we've now got. In the mean time, I hate to say it.....but we've just got to excercise the virtue of patience as much as it sucks. :-( It will all work out, we will just lean on each other until the kinks are straight! :-)

Giiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrl, I am a Nikon feen!!! I refer to my DSLR as my second child. LOL I am very protective of it and I keep it nearby at all times. My daughter will tell me to kick back and relax with all of the photos of her. ;-) "Mom, enough please!" is pretty common for her, especially around soccer season when I deploy the rapid shot on her! LOL I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cameras and even tried to enroll in a JC course this past semester but it was full. :-( Do not get me started on my love for DSLR's! LOL offtopic2.gif

I am at the stage of trying to figure out where our reception will be held. How did you decide or arrive at your selection? Also, have you already had your reception location confirmed by your WC?

    • 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?
