Hey Ladies! I hate being away from the forum for a day, I miss so much!! Yesterday was the closing of our house!!! I'm so excited!

 

Desiree- I am SO glad you decided to stay with RPRM. I think it will be less stress overall then trying to completely relocate, find a place, a date that works, an switch up all of your travel arrangments. I'm relieved because I love having you on our thread and all the help you've provided! I can almost guarantee the "swine flu" issue will be resolved by August. After all, it is just another form of influenza and I don't think it will that long until health care professionals figure out how to treat this strand and distribute appropriate medical care. If theres a resolution with prescription meds etc, then its just like getting the regular flu, which anyone can get anytime! I hope your guests come around....but if not, you can show off how amazing it was at your AHR and they'll all be wishing they didn't miss out. Did you talk to your friend yet??

 

Chloe- I know how you feel about your bridesmaids. I really want to do a brighter orange...and like you, I want something DIFFERENT. I found a few dresses I love, but the BM's arent too crazy about the color and they tell me they can never wear it again....but I'm buying all the dresses, so I could care less if they'll wear them or not! I have pics of a few different ones, I'll post them from home.

 

Katie- I love your pic! It's awesome to put a name with a face! Too cute

 

Last but not least, because I'm so excited I had to post some pics!

Josie - Nice house!!!

 

Kelly - I know what you are going through with family making you feel guilty for having people go away for your wedding. One of my sisters is making my DW planning a nightmare, telling me that all my guests are going to resent me for making them pay to go to my wedding. So at first I just wanted to make everyone else happy but I have realized that this is my one and only wedding and I gave them plenty of notice before we were even engaged that we would be going away to Mexico. This is about me and my FI, if people want to share it with us, I want them to come but anyone who is going to make any stress for us, it isn't even worth it.

ugh! I get so annoyed when people play the "expense card" and make you feel guilty for having a DW wedding and for them having to pay a high price to come. First of all, they don't HAVE to come (all DW brides understand some people can't afford it)....second of all, they get a beautiful vacation!!!!!!!!!!! They act like there is absolutely no benefit!! Most of all, i hate when people are negative about your wedding plans....i am in 2 weddings this summer and i am positive and excited for my brides, even if sometimes I think they're visions are crazy... i want their weddings to be exactly what they want!!!

yeah, when my sister had her wedding I did everything for her, now it's my turn so why can't she just back off and let me enjoy the experience! She tells me that I don't understand that not all the guests will be able to come, which is totally not the case! I understand!!! See her issue is it is not a vacation she would take, she likes cruises and has never even been to an AI, for my FI and I we have only been to AI and not cruises and my FI gets sea sick, why would we choose a cruise for our wedding when he would be sick the whole time!!! We met in Mexico and we want to get married there, she just needs to get over it and obviously I need to let it go that I can't make her happy. It just sucks that it's my sister making the fuss....

Jetsbride-Yeah, only 3 months! I can't believe it everytime I look at my ticker! I will be posting pics of everything soon. I have my BD pics on the 11th, then I have my shower on the 30th so I will be sure to share.

 

About your sis-yes, she needs to back off. I am exactly like you I love AI's and I don't like cruises. She needs to realize this is about you-not her, haha

 

BTW what is your first name b/c I hate just calling you jetsbride? wink.gif

I totally agree with you Josie! Just because people are invited doesn't mean that they HAVE to come, so I don't want to hear people complaining that it's an expense for them! Yes, it's an expense if they do come, but it's also a VACATION for them! And I always mention to people that we're having an AHR for those that can't make it...so I don't feel bad at all having a DW.

Kelly- you shouldn't let people make you feel guilty about your DW!

Lisa- you're not MAKING anyone go to Mexico...it's their choice, so I wouldn't worry about anyone will resenting you for that!

P.S. - Josie, I can't wait to see the pictures you posted when I get home!

Kelly- Definitely great points to bring up about cruises! I've been on several cruises and, while I've had fun, I would never want to have my wedding on one. Going to an AI is much more relaxing and less rushed than cruising. And you don't have to worry about getting a huge bill at the end of your vacation like you do on a cruise!

 

Lisa- you would think that since your sister has never been to an AI she would want to go EVEN MORE; especially because it's different than what she usually does.

    • 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?
