I have had no contact with the wedding coordinator yet! yikes! A friend of mine is going to be our photographer. He is great with a camera and fantastic with photoshop so I am happy. He is also my BM's hubby so he was coming anyways. Hee hee. Bachatbride told you of the bad review of the hotel photographer eh?

Date is coming quick. All our paperwork is done and faxed off. They let us know there were some mistakes with FI birth certificate translation so we are dealing with that right now. Of course they didn't say what the issues were so hopefully the consulate will be able to fix it. Where are you at in planning?

Honestly, I really haven't planned much!!! Still so far away. I've gotten started on my OOT bags, and bought 2 dresses for myself, and also picked out the bridesmaid dressess.... I have a problem with my MOH though, she is going through artificial insemination right now and "says" she will be fine with leaving her baby with her mom for a week, provided she even gets prego.. But she needs to get prego and have the baby BEFORE my wedding... So it's kind-of freaky, so Im waiting on actually ordering the dressess until we find out on Nov. 28th if she has a bun in the oven. I don't know what to do, I don't want to hurt her feelings by cutting her out of the wp, so i'm just going to wait and see, cause if she's not and has to do the treatments again she will have to drop out or she will be close to 9 months when I get married.... Urrrrrrgh.... Because I'm getting married right at NOON, my fiance and I have decided to have a private reception on a catamaran afterwards (through mel's tours). I have been to the resort in Nov 2007, so I have an exact idea of what things with look like already and saw a couple weddings on our vacation which looked really nice, so when it starts getting a little closer I will contact the hotel and make direct arrangements. . We are there for 5 days before we get married so we have a time advantage to make everything perfect. Let me know when you hear from the wedding coordinator and how it turns out.. I've spoken to her over email and she seams a little un-cooperative, so you might want to first start by contacting a hotel manager. Good luck and please keep in touch with your progresses...

    • 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?
