I'm just getting a standard cake like these - the choices were vanilla, chocolate, fruit or a combination of 2, so I did a combination of vanilla and chocolate. I'd like to have flowers on it and maybe an initial for a cake topper. Everyone has said the cakes are delicious!

Wow I really like the picture of Petals' cake... beautiful with the purple flowers!

I hear RPRM (my resort) isn't known for their cakes, but the other desserts are pretty impressive.

Hello April 2010 Brides. My wedding is on April 28/10. I am getting married at the Gran Bahia Principe Coba in Mayan Riviera, Mexico. I cannot believe how fast the big day is approaching. I am currently a full time student working on my Education degree. This leaves me very little time for wedding planning. I had hoped that a destination wedding would make my life easier, but I realize now that I am way to detail oriented to have a stress free planning process. My fiancé and I are very excited, but we have had many hurdles to jump through this year. The air line didnâ€t hold our seats and we lost our original wedding date in May 2010. The invites had already been sent out so they are pretty much garbage (at $4.00 each). So now that we have secured our new booking we have lost a few guests due to the date change and our photographer, but things are getting better. I hope we have seen the worst of the planning problems, or I may regret doing a destination wedding. Sorry for the negativity ladies! I am really excited.

Hi, Congrates and welcome to the site.
I am terrible sorry to hear about some of the bad luck you've been having.
Most of us have gone through some hurdle or what not in our planning for a destination wedding, a lot of us also feel it isn't as easy as we all thought it would be to plan a DW. But in the end it'll be so worth it. We all have a coordinator to deal with the crap when we finally get there. We will be laying on the beach, drink our fav drink. After all the ocean will be our back round for our wedding day.Can't get more amazing then that.
I try to remember this every time I feel disappointed or loss. Or plain just feel like giving up.
Now that you found us, it'll be a lot easier, there are so many ideas on here and us girls for support.

When We choose to do a DW, we originally picked Jamaica. After we sent our invites out with all that info.. we got a how bunch of bad reviews. Then decided to check the resort out on the google map and realize the resort was in a cruise ship port bay. So we changed our location, everyone has the jamaica invites. We had to send everyone a letter letting them know of the change (it was embarrassing) Your not alone, atleast it wasn't your fault lol

Well for one thing, we don't seem to have many maple trees here, for some reason they just don't grow well. And unlike your neck of the woods (which has a bit more temperate climate), we don't exactly see the four seasons quite the same in Alberta as you would in Ontario/Quebec. So yes, I do miss the leaves in the fall! I think in the past four years that I've been home two or three times. There are aspects that I miss (like the leaves) but mostly I'm happier here. Haha, I can't tolerate the humidity anymore!! I grew up down in Burlington and some in St Catharines. I really liked living down near Niagara because of all the hiking and wineries!!!!! I took FI back there a couple summers ago and he really liked it there too. So maybe one day.. maybe but not likely haha! The rest of my family is scattered pretty much around the same area extending up towards Barrie. I'm sad that I won't get to see them all for Chrismtas because we're all old enough now that we get along really well!

Oh and as for Suzy - I saw her yesterday!! We went to do some Christmas shopping actually. She only got back from vacation a short while ago and has been so busy trying to get unpacked and back into the swing of things, nevermind all the busy time for the holidays! She's working on getting herself back into the BDW world after the new year when things calm down a bit. I do have to say though that her little guy Tez is the cutest monkey ever! He was such a trooper to be out with us and barely put up a fuss. Don't worry though, she's doing well and will get caught up soon enough. I'll let her know you were asking about her 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?
