Hello ladies!!  The big day is a week from tomorrow (3/19) and we head down to DR on Wednesday morning (3/16).  Planning to do our "secret" civil ceremony here on Tuesday before we leave.  We threw together this wedding in about 6 weeks so I pray everything comes out beautiful since I haven't had the luxury of planning in advance.  I haven't posted much but I do promise to take the time to type up a thorough review with photos since the previous reviews have been so tremendously helpful!

 

I will also admit that I'm quite a bit nervous that Tiara may not be there as she is the WC that I have been working with.  But I will stay positive and keep my fingers crossed!! 

 

Thank you all for generously taking the time to post your plans, ideas, tips, and emotions as they have been not only helpful but extremely comforting.  You are all going to make beautiful brides!!! :)

Yvette,

 

Congrats and we will all be thinking of you. I'm nervous about Tiara not being there, but i've printed out every important and non important email from her to bring in a binder..

So excited for you!!!!! Even fi Tiara is not there I am sure that she left everythign organized and that the other WC will have everything held down.  At least you will meet with them before the big day to go over major details and ensure that things will go well. 

 

Good luck! and congrats on being a Mrs. in a week

The icon is next to the picture that looks like negatives from a roll of film.  You just click on it and find the pic and upload it.

 

I am definitely sure more 2012 brides will surface and after reading the ENTIRE forum I am sure I can be alot of help along with all other 2012 brides that have been following this thread.  I must say that if it wasn't for BDW I wouldn't be able to do a destination because I wouldn't even know where to begin.  Thank god for this forum!!!

 

I don't think I will be doing OOT bags.  My family is not very traditional so a lot of the things that I "should" be doing I won't do.  I don't want a flower girl or ring bearer either because I am trying to minimize the number of kids at my wedding.  I am going to get married in NY but I will not tell anyone as our best friends will be our witnesses.  I definitely want the sand ceremony because I think it is beautiful. I guess there are alot of things I need to sort out, it feels like there's still so much to do..hopefully I don't forget anything and remember it like a week before my wedding blink.gif

I would have thought just copy and paste, no? Dana that sucks about your sister; in years to come she will so regret her actions and not going to your bridal shower... :) Keep your chin up! I made tons of progress today on my OOT bags so it's been a productive evening :) Hope you all had a good one too.

Cant believe we fly out a week today! Bags are all packed still have some bits to buy but can't help feeling I've forgotten something..........I will have to sit and make a check list as I have bought so much stuff and "hidden" it all over the house, not very organised  but that's me all over!!!!

 

I have trying to email the spa to book an appointment for 2 months nearly, has anyone else had trouble with this??

 

I'm so glad I found this forum it has been a great help and the advice and ideas have really helped  I realise I have listened more than posted but you have all been a great source of inspiration  thewave.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.
