Maybe this anxious feeling has to do with the fact that I've also been stuck at the St. John's Newfoundland airport for the past 10 hours due to snow and wind. All wedding stuff has been put on hold as I'm doing a cross-country medical residency interview tour. 7 interviews, 7 cities in 18 days makes for one crazy lady! I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to plan a wedding during my last year of medical school. Sorry for ranting.. just feeling a bit overwhelmed!
Wow girl! You are busy! I hope you got out of the airport. I can't believe you already have 85 people booked - that's amazing. We only have 15 people booked at this point.

Hang in there. I think the advantage of doing a destination wedding is that you can make as stressful or stress-less as you want. I'm sure everything is going to come together beautifully in the end.

How’s everyone’s planning coming along – we’re 4 months away! I feel so behind on the planning…need some reassurance that I’m on track. The site is booked, travel arrangements booked, have a dress, booked a photographer, have bought 2 out 10 things for the OOT bags, almost done with BM gift bags, BM dresses are picked (not bought) out, bought ceremony fans. Feel like there’s so much more to do!

Hey ladies, I am starting to feel like it is really getting close to game time and I need to be a little more organized about what I have to get done. I am getting married June 12th at Las Caletas in Puerto Vallarta. So far I have sent out STD, hotel booked, site booked, bought my dress (love it!!). Have contacted some photographers but not made a decision yet. I just have to print the invites but they are about ready to go and the ribbon etc have already been done for them. Was thinking of sending them at the end of this month as poeple have been slow to book ~ I think a lot of people were waiting until after the holidays and have now gotten lazy. We have about 18 booked so far. Like the idea about the April 15th RSVP date. Here is the stuff I still need to do:[*]Get flower girl dresses[*]get grooms pants (already picked out shirt)[*]my shoes (any ideas where to find cute sandals?)[*]decide on and book welcome dinner/cocktail hour[*]MOH gift[*]book photographer[*]finish OOT bags (about 1/2 done but hard when I don't have final #'s)

Welcome letters etc.

 

AAHH! I better get moving here.

Who are you using for your photographer? Still have made a final decision on that yet. Finally registered today (Wasn't going to jut MOG really wanted us to...thought I better start out on a good foot and do it.). I need to start making a list so I can get a bit more organized with all of this.

    • 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?
