May 2009 Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi girls !

 

you have all done so much that I wonder if I will be able to make it to May ! I got engaged only 3 weeks ago, and have been so caught up by work since then that I still have to pick a place frown.gif

 

Will I be able to make it ? the only thing I've done is the "save the date" calls...

how did you send out STDs when you haven't picked a place? just wondering because i think it would have been even harder to find a venue if i wasn't a little flexible with the date ... may is a tough month, very popular for destination weddings in the caribbean especially since it's just outside the beginning of hurricane season, and college-age people are out of school.

good luck! (hopefully you won't need it) ... but don't worry, once your date and place are picked the rest really does come easily!

Ah ! The trouble is, most of my guests are coming from abroad (France, Singapore, Peru...), so I cannot take the hurricane risk... and I don't want my wedding to be in a year from now ! So, May was at the same time the closest and the latest... and on top of this this corresponds to school vacation in Singapore and bank holidays in France. So... it does give me only two choices in May...

I really hope I will find the right place at this time. Otherwise... I'll just elope wink.gif

Hi All!

I am also a May '09 bride. We are getting married 5/9/09 at the Occidental Grande Punta Cana. I thought I was on top of things until I started reading everyone else's completion lists! So far we have:

-sent out the invitations (really early, but I'm OCD on RSVPs)

-got my dress :) (still need to get it altered)

-I got my wedding band, FI can't seem to find the right one

-OOT bags ideas coming along (nothing bought yet)

-my sisters sing so they are performing for the ceremony

 

I think thats it sad.gif

 

I think I'll be more motivated to get things done once the RSVPs are in and we have a final head count...hopefully!

 

Thanks for all your tips, they are really helping!

well we've all had reasons why only a few different dates would do (there was only one week in may that my fiance could take off from school and he kinda needs to be there, LOL! ... actually your constraints might make your decision EASIER, since your date may be taken at some resorts. deciding on the resort was the single hardest part. can we help you narrow it down? what are you looking for?

    • 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?
