so excited to be here

Recommended Posts

Welcome Morgan! I too am an unofficial bride :) Sadly I think I'm more in the false hope category, but oh well. Someday!

 

This forum is wonderful, but I'm sure you already know that.

 

Will there be kids attending your wedding? And do you like the small intimate resorts or a large exciting resort?

Hi! Welcome! Sounds like you'll be engaged soon enough...can't wait to hear all the details after it happens! LOVE the engagement stories. . .I'm total sap about that stuff. ;-)

 

So where in Texas are you from? We've actually got a few Texas girls on here. I'm from the Dallas area.

Hi Rachelle! I am in the Dallas area also... which is interesting because Brian is in Atlanta. He left Texas in March (had to for his job) and will be there for 2 more years. I am definitely open to moving to ATL, but only want to do so once we are engaged and I have a job there. He would love for me to just move there now, but I'm fearful of cohabiting before the ring (because then maybe it will never come?) and would be more confident in moving if I had a great job to be excited about. I LOVE Texas and have lived here all my life... grew up in Fort Worth, went to school in Austin, lived in Houston shortly after college graduation, and now back in Dallas. My family, friends, favorite resturants, malls, hairstylist, doctors... etc (all the important stuff) is here, except him!

Hi Morgan, welcome! I'm also from Texas and an "unofficial bride". I do know that my bf has bought the ring though, so we're sort of in the same boat - waiting. wink.gif I live in Dallas, how about you?

 

We are planning on getting married in Playa del Carmen at one of the Iberostar resorts. The one in particular that we are thinking about is called Iberostar Tucan and it is nicknamed "The Jungle Hotel" because it surrounds an actual jungle with monkeys, parrots, etc! The beach there is supposed to be wonderful, and the prices affordable (It's AI as well, app. $850/person for 4 nights/5days INCLUDING airfare). Btw, if you are located near Dallas we found a great Travel Agent here that specializes in Destination Weddings - the agency is called Tiki Trips - Tiki Trips - Unique Vacations to Exotic Destinations. We're going to the Tucan in Playa for a site visit (before we're even engaged, ha!) June 9th-13th. Very excited!

 

Anyways welcome3.gif again and let us know if you need anything!

Welcome Morgan, I wish I had found these girls earlier in my planning, I may have done things differently. You will love everyone here, they will truly become your new best friends. Just be careful, this forum is a full time job, my children are voting to ban me from the computer, good thing I pay the bills. Good luck picking your resort, hopefully we will be able to help narrow it down for you. I am a DR bride, not too many of us out there! Actually is there any others out there? I can load you up on ifo for this area, let me know if you want to know anything.

Kelly~

    • 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.
