My fiance and I have been dating 6 years and we will be getting married after our 7th year anniversary. Not on a particular date though- we picked our wedding date based on my work schedule (I'm a teacher and school is out wahoo) and on ease of travel for our guests lol. Wish it was more significant but it will be after we marry! haha love.gif

My FI also proposed on our 4 year anniversary, but due to scheduling conflicts at work, we have to have the wedding a couple months after our 5 year anniversary. I can't wait. I'm jealous that you have already been to the resort for your wedding. I would probably feel so much better about our choice if I had visited there prior to the wedding. But we have heard several great reviews from friends and people on this forum so it helps to ease the nerves.

Yea I almost went to do a site visit for my resort but it was going to cost us $2,500 to go together and my fiance didn't want me to go alone. We figured we could put that $2,500 towards the wedding.

 

It was a good thing I didn't go. The week I had planned to do the site visit, we were told my grandmother didn't have much time so instead, I used some of the money to visit her in Georgia. I was there for a week. When I came home, a month later she passed away. Everything happens for a reason. I was so glad I got to see her once more before she passed away.

 

Caution to the wind! We almost chose the Majestic. My friend goes there every year. She told me I should do my wedding there and she absolutely loves it. Only reason I didn't was because the priest wasn't available and that was one of my non-negotiables.

Well, when he went shopping  he was adamant about changing my e-ring setting to something with side stones.  He's prob one of very few guys that would want their girl to get more diamonds, and I'm one of the few that don't want it!  When the shop owner came over and told him he agreed with my choice of keeping it simple and it'd look more classy he relented.  I chose a pave set eternity band at 1.25 ct to go with my 1.6 ct solitaire.  I'm so in love with it I cant stop looking at pics!

Maridr2012 - I love your wedding band - I can see why you cannot stop looking at the ring combo - it "pops!"  You are one lucky girl!!  I would like the same kind of wedding band!  Thank you for sharing!!!

Yeah the cost of a site visit seems ridiculous when we have so many other things to pay for this year. I am so glad that you were able to see your grandma before she passed. Everything certainly happens for a reason.

 

Thanks for the encouraging words about the Majestic! It is nice to hear so many good reviews about the place. I heard it was tough to get a priest. Fortunately, my FI and I are going to get married (no bells or whistles) before we go. Then we can have a symbolic wedding at the Majestic and my brother can actually perform the ceremony (he is an ordained minister in the states). We initially chose the Majestic because it is family friendly, however now it is starting to look like there are not that many if any families coming. wacko.gif

If youre talking about my ring- thank you! My ring is two carats center stone and a little less than a carat on the sides. And I will have a thin band that goes with it. I really wanted a halo ring, but he did an amazing job.

Here is a pic of my ering. I won't be wearing them together since it doesn't look good together and takes  away from each ring, so I will wear the ering on my right hand. kinda sad but i loved the wedding band so much.

    • 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.
