May 2010

Recommended Posts

I got jealous when I saw the April 2010 thread and thought I would start one for our month as well. I didnt see one but if there is one I apologize for the duplicate. Woot woot for May '10!!!

 

My date is May 17, 2010 which is a Monday...I know weird!

 

Is there anyone else out there or am I a lone soldier?

Hi Blana - no, you aren't the only one!! My date is May 5th, 2010 in Negril Jamaica. Like you, my date falls during the week - mine is a Wednesday. I've found a lot of Jamaica brides on here, but not very many that are having their DW at Beaches. RIU seems to be one of the more popular choices for JA.

Hey! We originally were going to Sandals Negril but due to so many complaints we reluctantly changed it to stateside! How is your planning coming along?

Planning is going pretty well I think - reservations made, I just finished addressing the first round of STD's today and will mail them on my way to work tomorrow. Web site is done and included on the STD's. Next major thing on my list is the photographer, and then my dress. And after spending hours and hours on this site over the weekend I think I have some great ideas for flowers, OOT bags, and decorations as well - but I'll get to those later :)

How's your planning? And I'm guessing the complaints were about not wanting to travel so far? I heard the same complaints but we compromised by having a big party when we get back. So where did you change your destination to?

Hi everyone! It is my plan to have a May 2010 wedding! I have yet to book a place but am thinking somewhere near Cancun. Can I ask how big your groups are that are coming? Ensuring that the guests have a great time is extremely important to me (which is why I think I can't decide). haha

 

Congrats to you all to being well on your way!

Well my intention was only to have about a dozen or so people. I was thinking both sets of parents, our siblings and their spouses and maybe a couple of close friends. However my FMIL felt differently and went ahead and verbally invited close to 30 people before I could even get my STD's mailed. So now if I don't invite those people I look like I'm snubbing them. UGGHHHHH!! So I'm trying not to think about it. So much for something intimate!!

Heya Mmontgo,

I was so super excited to find out (yesterday) that there will be a new Dreams Riviera Cancun!!! I love Dreams Cancun but don't want to be in Cancun, and I love Tulum but I am not totally in love with Dreams Tulum... so Dreams Riviera Cancun seems like a wonderful choice if I decide to get married in the Mayan Riv iera instead of Cabos.

Do you have any new information/pictures about the wedding set ups? I would *love* to know if they have a dedicated wedding gazebo and what it looks like... and what the beach is like as well.

    • 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?
