I've even asked him if he wants to postpone the wedding. He says no but at the same time I don't think he's ready to start talking "wedding" againhuh.gif
So sorry to hear about your FI's dad. I'm sure it's hard to bring up wedding stuff. But, if he wants to keep the date, I say just start doing things on your own, and he'll join back in when he feels ready to.

All my best,
Sherry

I did get a few more things done on my list... Our save the dates are sent, created a wedding logo, and narrowed down my dress options. I may post the finalists once I have narrowed it down to just 2.

Thanks ladies! grouphug.gif It has been difficult but with each day things are getting better.
Kla.Kari I LOVE your logo colors! Can't wait to see photos of ur dresses! We don't mind if you have more than 2 to show! :)
Sherry: That's exactly what I'm doing. Just kinda doing little things on my own until I feel he's ready.

Thanks for your support ladies!!!

Oh Samantha my heart goes out to you!!

 

I am planning something at our wedding to remember/include my own father's memory, who passed away back in '99. You are more than welcome to this idea ... we are going to take a green (my Dad was Irish) floating candle and send it out to sea at some point in the evening after the wedding, and my sister and i will both have a bit of green ribbon tied into our bouquets for him. It's just something small, but I want to have a physical link to him at our wedding ...

 

Now for my update ....

 

- Flights booked April 24th to May 9th

- Beaches Boscobel booked for the wedding April 28th at 3PM, staying at Beaches from April 25th to May 1st

- Honeymoon Booked at Grand Lido Braco from May 1st to May 8th (Fantastic prices!!!!) We got a Royal Beachfront room, which we have had before and loved, with $500 in spa credits and one night free for $2,178!!!!!

 

Invites are completely finished, just need to mail/hand deliver them to our families on Monday (Canadian Thanksgiving)

 

WOW!!! Time to exhale and think of the next steps ...

 

Take care ladies & gents,

Danielle

I love the candle idea! I think that's so poetic.

 

I have now purchased a wedding guestbook, and the flowergirls gift. Also bought some pashminas for the bridesmaids from ebay.

 

Yup, haven't done much more! I'm really thankful I chose to do the all inclusive thing now!

We have finally decided on our invitations!! Making the deposit tomorrow. They should be printed and ready to get mailed the first week in November...however now I'm a little hesitant with all of the Dreams Tulum closure drama sad.gif We are in the process of developing a back up plan. I just don't want to delay the invites because of the location. So confused!

I love the candle idea to honor your dad! I've been trying to think of something to honor his memory...

 

My little update:

had a meeting/tasting with the caterer for the AHR

bought BM dresses (not totally sure if they're going to work out, but whatever!)

decor for AHR almost done

website complete (wanna see? it's Tatiana Price & Clayton Stahn's Wedding Website - WedQuarters)

bought sand ceremony frame

OOT bag contents almost done

 

Now, I'm leaving on Tuesday for a 2 week Brazilian vacation, so I'm ready to kick back and relax!!! I love that the "To do" list is getting shorter and shorter!

 

I can't believe it ladies! We're only 6 months away!!!

Hey ladies,

I was hoping to get some advice..I sent my STD's in September and set up our wedding website. The problem is I haven't had many RSVP's. When should I send out the invites? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Did you ask for an RSVP with your save the date, for planning purposes? If not, that may be why you aren't seeing any.

 

That said, I planned on sending out the invites beginning of November (which I just realized is only two weeks away! sheesh! I am so behind!). Depending on how detailed your save the dates were, you could wait to send your invites until about 2 months prior. If your save the dates were just about the date with no details, you may want to send invites about 4-6 months out, so guests have adequate time to make travel arrangements.

 

Hope that helps!

HOLY CRAP! We are less than 6 months away... I was on top of things, purchasing stuff for DIY, now I think that I have too many projects that I took on and will have to start the assembly now!

 

Spreadsheets up the wazoo to see what I have to do when, I just don't have time to do it all!

 

OK BREATHE! To do now....

start gathering info for formal invites (having Sarah do them!)

hire AHR caterer

Relax....

    • 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?
