Yay!! Im not by my lonesome!!

Meli122: We decided on Galveston kinda by default. Not that it isnt gorgeous it just wasnt our true idea. Originally, in our wildest dreams we wanted to go to Hawaii but found out that it is wayy more expensive than we thought it would be soo we got all excited and paid our deposit and picked Sandals Negril which doesn't allow kiddos. We wanted it that way even though we have a 1 yr. old b/c we wanted a no mess wedding and we couldn't even think of paying the crazy fee for our daughter since she would be 2 by then BUT FI's father decided that if FI's stepbrother couldn't come (he is 11) then they wouldn't be there AND they wouldn't help us pay for anything so....after going round and round with family and them contradicting themselves on saying.."Do what you want, its your day!" we decided to look stateside. We looked to Galveston b/c in our opinion it has the nicest beach with the least drive and least tourists. My mom and I took a trip down there with my daughter for the weekend stopped in at several vacation rentails and found a home right on the beach about 10mins from town that is big enough for our 2 immediate families and had space for a wedding there. And there ya have it! We will be having a wedding on the beach then will walk up to the house for a nautical themed reception. It worked out in the end but I still wish we could go out of the states somehow.

    • 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.
