We have decided to have a wedding, just the two of us, on Maui. We had amazing engagement photos taken...........and wanted to send out an engagement announcement. We are both 40, I have been married previously, he has not. Most of his family lives in another country, and so he thinks the photo would be a nice touch. Is it distasteful to announce, with the date, and then state somehow that we will be married in a private sunset ceremony on Maui?

 

Love any advice. TKS!

I don't think it's tacky. I think it's a good way to let your friends and family know you are getting married and at the same time that you would like your nuptials to be a private affair. This way nobody is waiting around for their invite.

I don't think it is tacky at all. I'm not sure that I would register or expect gifts under those circumstances, though. I think it is a great way to announce your engagement and explain your choice of privacy.

You know your friends and family, we don't. However my instict would be to give them a chance to share in your lovely pictures and see the happiness on your faces; and while you're at it - show us too and post those pictures up please!!

    • 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?
