destination and hype

Recommended Posts

Only 2 of our friends came. My feelings were a bit hurt at first because the rest came up with stupid excuses for not coming. In the end I'm glad we only had 26 people, anymore than that and I may have gone insane with the organizing!

Yeah we invited about 50 and 16 showed up and it was a perfect number... Easy for excursions and gatherings.

During the planning process I began to second guess if I even wanted to do a destination wedding. I have a large and very close family and people started dropping out one at a time. At the time I questioned was I making the right decision and how could I have my wedding without my family there. Well I did and it was FABULOUS! I only had 3 family members there and a lot of friends and we had a blast. When we got back and everyone saw the pictures they were kicking themselves for not going. We had even talked about having a AHR for everyone that couldn't make it and we scrapped that idea. We had our dream wedding and like a few of the ladies already said everyone that was supposed to be there was there and that is how it was meant to be. No matter what you do or how accommodating you are you just can't please everyone so as long as you and your fiance are happy with your decisions that is all that matters.

    • 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?
