Newbie... and doesn't know where to begin

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


All I know is that my fiancee and I want a destination wedding... we haven't gotten much further than that so far! :)


My name is Karen and I've agreed to marry the kindest and most wonderful man I've ever met... Charles. We got engaged Sept 6 '08 and we were enjoying life as an engaged couple but now reality is setting in and the planning must begin.


We're looking to get married late Nov/early Dec 2009 and have at least been able to narrow our choice of destinations from the very many down to 4 (Rivera Maya, Bahamas, Curacao and St.Martin).


I've perused the forum and I'm definitely thankful for having found this site... I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas and conversing with any and all of you.

Welcome and Good Luck! We are having the same issues with nailing down a location. We started with a list of 12 potential locations and now have it down to 4 as well! Good luck!

Hi Sandra,

I've got 2 cents to share re: Cabo as a destination.

We went to Cabo in April this year for my cousin's wedding... and we loved it! The weather was perfect (not too dry, not too humid), the water was incredible and the views... oh the views. We have some amazing photos from our trip. The resort we were in was the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas. The resort was excellent - clean and well maintained. The food was also good. We did a day trip into town and we did an sunset harbour tour (which was arranged for all of the wedding guests - something I would definitely recommend). There is a disco - although we did not go to it.

Hope this helps!

    • 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.
