April 2010 Brides

Recommended Posts

jodi - first comment - I LOVE YOUR DOG! hehehe! So cute!

 

About your AHR invites, I would wait until after the holidays are over at a minimum before sending them. I'd think you could follow more of a traditional timeline for them so maybe 2 months ahead of whatever your RSVP date would be? And going by your wedding date, I'd probably have the AHR rsvp in early april so that you can get your final numbers planned out before you leave for your wedding.

Christina- I think your letter gets to the point and isn't harsh. I agree with adding the TA's name like the girls mentioned. I wish I had done this instead I will be sending my formal invites the first week of Jan... so imagine getting two pieces of mail from a bride within 2-3 weeks.. bridezilla! lol

 

btw, thanks for writing on my wedding website guestbook..that was really nice of you!

 

Jodi- I'm really sorry to hear everything that has happened. I hope the next couple of months will be better for you.

wow what abeautiful dress, and on top of it it's your TTD?!?! wow I am totally jealous lol!!

Yes I didn't know about the chalk either, I saw it on here.. and here I was going to go with tide to go. But I did research and this is much better for the dress to cover accidents.

 

Jodi,

Yes I agree with Meghan, 2 months before the AHR date. I am having my July 10th and I will send it out May 15th-20th and they have a date of June 10th to call to rsvp.

and your dog is soooo cute!! :)

I have a boxer and she is totally my baby! I've had to spend a couple month-long work trips without her and I hate not having her around. Before FI and I lived together, he was taking care of her for one of my trips and he used to put her on the phone for me and even sent me a video of them playing in the park so that I could see she was happy! I still have it on my laptop and it was taken almost two years ago!

 

And to keep you from worrying here's what I figured out - I'm going to be so completely distracted about finally marrying FI that I won't even have time to miss her (well, almost!) until all our guests leave and we have a few days to ourselves. You can sure bet that I'll be calling home to check in on her though!

tonya, that dress is a HUGE find... what a steal! it looks perfect for a TTD too!

 

i think i am just avoiding thinking about the AHR all together! my photog is doing my invitations for me and i really don't want to think about the rest of it! we're just doing a real casual, bbq style party, but the thought of trying to plan all that with the rest of this stuff going on is slightly overwhelming!!

Things I have to do:
OOT bags and everything associated with them
Schedule BD shoot (waiting for more weight loss) Joanna - are you using someone in NYC or Jersey?
follow up on Non responders - they have till 12/31 - have gotten less than half
Create music playlists
figure out hair and veil situation
I'm sure there's more. I can't think right now!
I'm using Kamila Harris for the shoot in 4 weeks! eeekkk!!!!! She's from Philly but comes up to NYC a few times a year for bd shoots.

i know that i will be distracted too much to worry but its gonna be strange as he usually comes everywhere with us xx

my AHR is fairly casual just a buffet that i have to confirm guest numbers on so there is enough finger food to go around

dj is booked and we have a photographer that agreed to do the traditional shots at the beginning and then random photos of all the guests for the whole night and he is only charging £250 and we get all our photos on disk afterwards

I was hoping to get some of you girls advice for favours.

I am doing the OOT bags and I am spending $15 per couple and for the single guest I am also spend $15 p/p. really thought I'd only get maybe 10 people (5 couples maybe 1/2 single ppl) But now I realized I am having about 23-30 people so now the OOT bag are started to add up. I was also going to get lantern's for the dinner table favour. I was going to do this per couple as well and one for the single ppl. They are about 4$ and they are not the lightest thing. Are any of you girls doing OOT and a dinner table favour? If so what are you guys getting? I am thinking of reconsidering and just getting seashell candle holder and have those light up for dinner and then ppl can take that.

Any ideas? advice I would be so appreciated. Thanks so much!!

    • 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?
