Is anyone else getting married on blind faith?

Recommended Posts

Blind faith here. I've been to Jamaica and other AI resorts but not the one where my wedding is. FI has never been to the Carribean at all and didn't want to go before the wedding.

It was the reviews of Grand Palladium on this forum that helped me make my final decision.

I think I can top everyone in the respect that I am THE MOST BLIND - I actually have never been ANYWHERE. Honestly, I don't even have a passport (yet of course). So yeah....definitely blind faith over here!!! I've never even been to an airport before!!! OMG...this sounds so ridiculous as I'm typing it. I hope you ladies pray for me when I leave to get married. hahahaha.

The FI and I are in the "Helen Keller/Stevie Wonder" category of Blind if you're talking Blind Faith!

 

Not only have we not been to Jamaica yet, neither of us have been to a Sandals resort, either, so we are just going on what we've read on Trip Advisor, the Sandals site, and what the wonderful ladies of the BDW have said or shown in their reviews!

 

The adventure of going somewhere totally new to both of us is sort of symbolic of starting the journey of our lives together! If there are bumps along the way, at least we'll have each other along the ride!

We haven't visited our resort either and don't plan on doing a site visit. I've gotten enough rave reviews from other girls on this fabulous board to feel very confident with my decision!

totally blind faith for me. I picked the location from the reviews on this website! I have been to Riviera Maya and remember the beautiful water in Tulum so I knew I wanted something close. I think that makes it fun! I also just couldn't spend the extra money to go down beforehand. I also wanted to act quickly.

I wouldn't call it blind faith... there are so many wonderful women on this forum who have been to my destination and can attest to the greatness of it!!! I am cruising to my destination though and I've never been on a cruise. I like to think of it more as an adventure. I want my wedding experience to be full of firsts for me and my fiance!

We have never been to Puerto Vallarta and we both decided it would be great to be surprised by everything!! It only added about $800 to our budget but we decided to pass. We did have our brother go for our tasting:) He did not mind at all.

    • 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?
