Desiree, have fun over the weekend!!! can't wait to see the pics!!


Speaking of travel agents, did anyone get any special deals for booking with them, such as discounts, or a free trip depending on how many people go, I've heard a few people getting some pretty great deals when dealing with agents.


Josie - Love your new siggy pic.


for having an outside photographer, I've been reading the forum and a lot of confusion of whether one is allowed at the Riu. I emailed the Riu and didn't really get a straight answer, but I heard you will have to give up your free pics in the wedding package as well. if they do allow you to bring one. which I guess wouldn't make much of a difference if you had a photographer. XD XD

Desiree! Have a blast at your bachelorette party!


Lisa what kind of invitations did you get, can't wait to see the pics! And how did the dress visit go?


Ladies have anyone of you heard of honeymoonwishes.com basically I dont want to have a wedding registry since I can't think of anything that we need because the FI and I bought a place together two years ago and have bought everything for the house in the last two years. Do you guys think its lame to register at honeymoonwishes.com so that people can contribute toward our honeymoon?

Samira- I think the honeymoon registry is a great idea. There's a lot of information/discussion about it on the forum. I think it's perfectly appropriate and would be totally fun!

Thanks everyone for all of the OOT bag ideas! I actually went shopping the other day and almost NO ONE has beach bags or towels anymore! I don't get it...it's only July! So I might have to start looking online. Kelly, where did you get your bags from?


Josie- Love your new siggy pic!


Jannae- Your STD's sound awesome! You will definitely have to post pictures of them once they're made!


Samira- I think registering for you honeymoon is a great idea! It actually makes it easier for people too. No sense in registering for things you don't really need.


Desiree- Congratulations and I hope you had a great legal day! I also hope you're having an AMAZING and CRAZY bachelorette party/weekend! Can't wait to see pics!

I'll make sure to post a pic of my STD's when I get them all done! Everything is ordered, so now I just have to wait for the madness to begin


Still contemplating the TA thing. My destinationweddings.com lady seems kind of strange. Like she doesn't know what she's about or something, and she keeps getting little details wrong, so I've put in an inquiry for one on this site (still haven't heard back, which is strange) and one for Liberty travel (thx Katie!) We'll see what happens!! Thanks for all of the great info Josie, it sounds like you got a good one!


Chloe and Josie- I love the cup with the welcome letter idea! I'm going to do that one for sure...


Josie- you are treating your BM's so well! Buying their dress, jewlery and spa!! How sweet of you. I'm in a wedding next month--- none of that for us! :) haha


Lisa- can't wait to hear how the dress visit went!

OH--- I wanted to ask all of you. Since 80% of the guests need to stay there, did you tell any of them that? Like on your website or anything? Since we are inviting 60, I am a little worried. I would assume that they would all want to just stay at the same resort, but you never know...

Desiree - Glad to hear you had such a great weekend, I can't wait to see your photos!

Your tickers says 5 days till your wedding now...crazy!!!!!


Jannae - I didn't tell any of my guests this, I just figured most would stay at the same hotel and so far everyone has booked at the same hotel.


My weekend was very busy and really great! On Saturday my parents had a BBQ for us and invited lots of people who will be at the wedding so my FMIL could meet some people before we went down to Mexico. It was sooo awesome we had a blast! Then on Sunday we went over to my FBIL and FSIL and they had a surprise shower for us (so that the FMIL) could be here for a shower. It was really fun and totally unexpected! I am so emotional though I was crying for absolutely no reason...it was strange!


My visit with my dress on Friday was also amazing, I love it sooo much, every time I see it I love it even more!

Hi Ladies! Happy Monday. I've been MIA and am just getting caught up on all of your posts.


Re: a travel agent- I am using someone from Liberty Travel who has been wonderful coordinating my guests flight/hotel & transfers to and from the RPRM. She updates me via email re: guests booking. Let me know if you want her info.


Re: honeymoon registries- while I have never used a site like this, I have heard mixed reviews. Supposedly there are fees your guests will be charged above the cost of what they buy you; just something to look into. Otherwise, I think it's a cute idea.


Re: OOT bags- I plan to put one in every guestâ€s room (total guests coming TBD). To limit the amt. I travel to Mexico w/ I am planning on going into downtown Playa a few days before the wedding and getting some local favors. I also am thinking about having word puzzles, decks of cards first aid kits, and a travel mug (those seem to be a hit).

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
