will we look stupid going by ourselves?
I saw a thread yesterday with photos of a wedding where there was only the bride, groom, their child, and the brideâ€s parents (I think). This is the link to the thread http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...g-photo-50655/. She had a link to her wedding photos in her post. Some of the photos showed her husband-to-be helping her get ready. Iâ€m not sure if that is something you would consider.

I know I want to do the tradition of not sleeping together the night before the wedding, but I donâ€t know if we can avoid seeing each other the day of the wedding before the ceremony. Since we will be doing a cruise wedding, it will be difficult to avoid seeing each other in the port. But, I definitely donâ€t want my FI to see me in my full wedding attire until I am walking down the aisle.

If I were you, I would move your ceremony up earlier in the day if it is just the two of you. That gives you more time to spend together after the ceremony. Just think of all the anticipation you will be feeling while waiting for 5:30 to roll around.

I just had to share… I got 4 more RSVP postcards in the mail today, so that makes 13. Yay! Just waiting for 39 more! My RSVP deadline (preliminary RSVP) is November 6th. So, for now I have 11 sailing and 9 non-sailing guests for my cruise wedding.

I think we're going to spend the night together the night before the wedding. I like the tradition of sleeping separately but we've been living together for so long now that neither of us sleep that well without the other and I want us to get lots of rest for the big day. I really don't want him to see me in my dress or anything until I get down the aisle, though! He hasn't seen my dress, either, not even a pic so it'll be a nice surprise.

Yay Congrats!! I really didn't do my research because I didn't do a preliminary rsvp and I put Feb 2010! I have received a few though...and a lot of people have booked already so I know some will be coming! lol

LOVE the pic of you with the Alligator - brave woman! I'd love to hold one!

I am sooooooo kicking his butt out of our room the night before nuptials! and mostly not because of tradition, although I'm looking forward to the anticipation of not seeing him until the ceremony...because we ALWAYS see eachother lol
It's mostly because I can't bloody wait to have a King Size bed all to myself!! My FI's a crowder, roller, sleep talking hugger and I'm a need space and need to be able to breath sleeper - So the night before my wedding may just be the best nights sleep I'll ever get for the rest of my life, lol!! Oh yeah - getting rid of the kid for the night too, gotta love Grandparents!! lol
OH I can't wait for a little slice of HEAVEN!!!

I sleep so much better when the FI is with me too, but I want to attempt to do the traditional thing. We'll see if I stick to it!

A king size bed! Wish I had one of those. I'm still rockin' the queen size bed. We'll have to upgrade after the wedding.

Well, gotta go to bed now. I think I've gotten enough wedding thoughts out of my mind for now so I can get some sleep (in my queen size bed).

    • 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?
