April 2009 Brides Check In!

Recommended Posts

hi ladies! I've been MIA fro awhile...October has been a crazy month at work and now all of a sudden I feel like I'm so behind, I haven't done anything for the wedding in a really long time. Also everything going on with the Dreams Tulum closure has made me hold back until we see what is going on. Hopefully it will all work, I'm stressing big time.


On a positive note my mom booked my shower location and date and we booked our AHR venue and date so other things have been accomplished yay! Oh ya and our invitations are being printed on Monday and mailed this week. how is everyone else doing? Any fun projects to share?

I'm wondering if I'm the only one waiting until January to give out my invitations?? It seems as though people are doing them before or during the holidays. I completely understand why and I had changed my plans to do that as well but I decided this week that I am going to wait until Christmas to print them off and put them together so that my bridesmaids who are home at Christmas can help me with them. I feel like since it's the only time I'll see them before Jamaica that we should get some wedding bonding time in!


I think I'm ok with my decision only because I'm excited to spend that time with my bridesmaids instead of other friends who don't need to be as involved in my wedding. - I guess there's more to that story but that's for another thread.


I guess my concern is do you think January is too late to give out my invitations? Anyone who would come on the trip to Jamaica already know about it so it won't make a difference for that. Is there some other reason they should get sent out earlier?

We sent out STD's in May, as everyone had to book asap in our group package, and we probably won't send actual invites until early next year.

I don't think it is too late at all. I just sent out my invitations last week because our guests needed a little push to book... We almost decided not to do invitations at all since we sent out STD's but in the end, went with the boarding pass invites (which turned out awesome, and only took me 6 hours to do all of them by myself)...


In other words, wait, have fun with the bridesmaids!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
