Overwhelmed but still excited!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


My name is Jenn. Andrew proposed in August 2008. We are very excited to have a DW preferably Dec 28 or 29th in 2009. Destination is still up in the air. Sooo many places to choose from its so overwhelming. I have to say though that these reviews are definitely helping me put an Y or N beside a few!


Everyone keeps telling me that the dates we picked are going to be very expensive.... anyone out there that has recently married around the same time? I would love some feedback. We have to get married either Xmas holidays or March break as we have a number of teachers in the family.

I got married in April, but I priced out many different options, including Christmas and spring break. Both are MUCH more expensive. However, if that's when your family and friends are able to join you, then it might be worth the extra cost for you.

I'd simply try and find a location which has cheaper flights typically, like Cancun for you as opposed to Cabo. I think that will help.

WELCOME!! This forum is the perfect place to help you pick your destination. While the time of year you are looking at may be more expensive, you'll see that there are so many options, you're sure to find something to fit any budget! Congrats and Good Luck!

    • 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.
