Thanks for posting those. I can't belive how much everything is going to cost once I add in all the extras. When we frist decided to go with a DW we thought it would be alot cheaper. For some reason I thought they would have all these things included in a package. I wonder if you can get married on the grasss like they have on the arch pictures?? One of our groomsmen is in a wheelchair and most of the wedding places aren't very wheelchair accesible.

I wonder if the pricing for the arches includes the flowers as wellhuh.gif What do you guys think. It says the arch name and the flowers. It wouldn't be so bad if it did include flowers. Chandlyn said she will take the flowers from the ceremony and decorate the reception tables with them so you wouldn't need to buy centerpieces as well.

I think some include flowers - the ones where it says the flower names / type of arrangement(s) in the description below the picture.

I'm definitely thinking the bamboo arch, I really do think it's nice. And for centerpieces, I think I'm going to bring my own and maybe do shells/candles/sand or something like that instead of flowers. The only problem with that is trying to pack it all up and bring it all down!

Well GOOD thing I am on my laptop sitting on my bed, because if I was on my desk top I would have fallen off my chair with these prices!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone has a Ragshop craft store around they are going out of business and they have some great ideas for center pieces with silk flowers all on sale. Well everything adds up and I think I will save money on flowers and little odds and ends so I can budget more for the photography, because thats really expensive too.

hijacked.gif Jerzzygirl - I just noticed how close your wedding is! You're the first one of us to go down there. Are you getting so excited? You will definitely have to give us a rundown of the RIU when you get back (including all these crazy prices)!!!

Sorry, totally off topic again, but when you mentioned your passports, I was just thinking of the stuff we need to send to the RIU before we go. Is it just copies of our passports and birth certificates? How far in advance do we need to send them? (I guess I should have started a new thread!)

    • 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.
