From day one he has said absolutely not. I think it would definitely be a surprise for guests and make for some good photos, but I'm alright with letting him have this one thing!!!
haha i LOVE the donkey - that is great

My FI doesnt want a TTD :-( Granted, we really can't afford it now and I am just happy we were able to afford a Photographer that wasn't the resorts (Cecilia Dumas! :-) But I think a TTD would have been really awsome.

I can certainly live without it though!! :-)

My FI is the same way about the shoes. I would be fine with the guys in flip flops but he is set on all of the men wearing real shoes..

Otherwise he is pretty laid back and will go along with whatever I want..

 

JHarwood2B - That donkey idea is great :) If that was an option at our resort, I guarantee you my FI would be making us have that..

yeah my fiance is the same way about the shoes ... there's NO WAY he will let sand touch his feet. he's going to be in dress shoes. good thing we're in a gazebo and not on the beach! (actually, this is part of the reason we chose dreams cancun ... he's *that* adamant about not touching sand, LOL!)

What is it with FIs and shoes?!?!?! Mine is agreeable on wearing flip flops, but when we went to get pick up the BM dresses, he decided to haggle the sales lady because "he always wanted to own a paif of tuxedo shoes" ?shots.gif

So he managed to buy the pair they normally rent!!

He got a great deal though, 20$ !! Costs more to rent the damn things!!!

 

Side note: He has yet to wear them... lol

K, why is the shoe thing a common thread?? Are they all completely cracked?? Mine is getting weird about the "type" of sandal he's going to wear. He keeps picking ugly Jesus looking sandals.

 

He's put his foot down or rejected any idea I've had for our Buck & Doe (which is Saturday - YAY) He says that because Im from a city, we dont know how to do a proper Buck & Doe, like country folk do. WTF? So I gave up on planning it a long time ago. He planned the Buck & Doe, and I planned our wedding. Fair enough I guess. Hehe

My DH was so great about everything. He wanted to pick out his suit but I got to go and help. The only thing he flipped out about was...

 

His Mom called to let us know that his Grandmother wanted to wear a white dress with flowers on it. I didn't care if she wore white and I said that was fine. Well, when DH found out he FLIPPED out. He called his Grandma and went on and on and on about how you don't wear white to someone elses wedding and how the bride should be the only one! I felt kinda bad, I didn't want his family to think that he went off because I said something. I did think it was super cute though.

    • 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?
