Calling all November 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much for your support! This has been the only disagreement that I have had with my fiance, thus far. I feel as if this is such a tricky and sensitive topic, and b/c it's a DW, people seem to think that different rules apply. Oh well, I'm trying to let go, although I am very frustrated as to why it seems very straightforward to me, and me only! :-)

Can I ask you all a question.... Why did you choose to get married in November? That's a question I've been hearing every since I started planning.

 

We had no real reason for choosing November. The anniversary of our 1st date is Oct 6 (we celebrate the anniversary of our first date bc we have no idea when we actually started our relationship. It was just like after our first date we were a couple. I stopped talking to this guy I had been dating, and my FI supposedly wasn't dating anyone else... sorry I digress). We wanted to get married in October but the cruise prices were a bit expensive and it was still hurricane season. So we settled on Nov. Also with my FI's job he chooses not to take big vacations until after June, so a spring wedding would be out. Lastly it just so happened that I chose for us to get married on Marine Corp Birthday and my FI is a retired Marine...Umm so yea that's it in a nutshell.

 

So now we'll get to vacation for our anniversary at the beginning of winter. I love going someplace tropical when it's cold.

We wanted a fall wedding and Sept/Oct is the "rainy" season in Cabo so we pushed it to November. I agree though, I think it will be a nice time of year for anniversary trips to warm tropical places. wink.gif

Ditto to Megan!

We chose November for a couple reasons - we got engaged in December and we wouldnt be able to plan it quick enough for spring 09 and I didn't want to wait until Spring'10. Plus, we both live away from home and we figured if we got married in November, we could have our AHR in December when we are home for Christmas!

 

We have had lots of people ask "why November" too - I think because when people think of heading down south, they often think of going in spring.

Well our original date was October 14th which is our anniversary. When we finally figured out where we were holding the ceremony/reception that date wasnt available. It was the last week of October of first week of November. Since the last week of October fell on my FI birthday, we decided to go with the first week of November. It also is the end of turtle nesting season the first week of November to which means we can be near the beach past sunset.

    • 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.
