Hi! My name is Gem and I just got engaged last Saturday!! We just started talking about our "wedding vision" and love the idea of a destination wedding. I am not sure yet if this is feasible (still need to check with our families about their thoughts on this), but it would be a dream come true if we could make this happen. We are thinking of a wedding in Hawaii or Mexico in Summer 2008. Can't wait to learn from all the brides in this forum!

Congrats, can't wait to hear if you decide on a DW. If you want a smaller wedding it's great doing a DW. Let us know if you have any questions, maybe we can help you figure out if it's in your budget.

Congratulations!!! I'm so jealous (I don't have a ring yet sad.gif)

Just a warning, when ever the idea of a destination wedding is thrown around, a lot of people say "but then grandma won't be able to come..." Just remember, it's YOUR day. And you can always include grandma in other things, like dress shopping or something like that which will make her feel involved.

Good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
