Recommended Posts

I am traveling to Anna Maria Island from Kentukcy for my wedding in October, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my dress down there with me.

are you flying or driving downhuh.gif if you are flying, most airlines will let you hang the dress in the first class closet or just put in nicely folded in half in an overhead :o)

I have two dresses - my DRESS, and my TTD. I was going to put them both in the same back and just carry on and hope for the best. I'm flying Mexicana, and from what I understand, there is no closet.

 

I was planning on folding them in half and laying them over the top of an overhead bin - and keeping an eye on it like a hawk to keep anyone else from touching it. But...if it gets wrinkled, I'll just spend the extra money to get it steamed...I'm kind of figuring I'm going to have to do that anyways!

Make sure that you carry it on with you....don't let them check it, and don't mail it. I've heard a lot of girls say that folding it in half (or even rolling it up) and putting it in the overhead (you can put it on top of luggage if needed) is better than hanging it in the closet because the closets are short and the bottom of your dress gets scrunched a wrinkly. You can always steam it when you get there if it does get wrinkled. A good way to do that is to hang it on the back of the bathroom door right away and run the shower at it's hottest temp...the steam from the shower should get the wrinkles out. If that's not an option you can either buy a travel steamer or a lot of hotels will steam your dress for you for a fee. If all else fails, use the hotel iron on a low setting with a towel between the dress and the iron! Good luck!

    • 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?
