That is what I was originally thinking, but I have read that linen pants wrinkle very easily. Thoughts?

Hi Ladies and congratulations!


I was a November 2008 bride in Puerto Vallarta. If I can be of any assistance, please let me know! I may sound partial, but YES - I totally agree that November is the best time to get married!


Happy planning!

The only thing is we had to put more of a deposit down because it wasn't a charter flight so you actually have to pay for all of your flight upfont and then a deposit for the resort. Just thought I'd mention it because I noticed you're from Chicago and that's where we fly out of.
Thanks! I'll check Funjet.

Also - USA3000 if you wait for their public rates for Nov. if you book air and hotl separately I got it cheaper because I got the flights this past November for $300 per person. Just a possiblity. I think booked the hotel (w/ free transfers) through apple and got a great deal!

Thats awesome about your dress! I can't open the attachement however... sad.gif that sucks! I know I was so excited to put the deposit on my dress on the 17th!! I still have to get pics of it to post it on here for you all!! I also just puchased my sand ceremony stuff... and I was trying to find a way that I would stop the sand from leaking when we bring it home and you know those green half moon styrofoam things? It fits perfectly in the top! I will just have to tape it shut... so if you are looking to find something to stop the sand from leaking.. good choice.. from Walmart only 97cents! And my vase was 3$!! Oh and I got my cake topper too!!!


Also just found out that I will be having my third bridesmaid after all... my fiance has 2 sisters one of them wasn't going to be able to come... and now they can!!! So excited about that! They already have their dresses picked out.. just need to order them now!!! So exciting!!

Hi ladies! I too am a November 2009 bride and after reading what everyone has accomplished, I'm feeling behind! We've only been engaged a month, though, so maybe it's not so bad.


At least the save-the-dates went out yesterday and my fiance promises to choose his groomsmen this weekend. In my head, I have the wedding 75% planned. wink.gif

    • 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.
