Sometimes it doesn't pay to do things too far in advance...


So, I'm a cruisebride who has been booked for over a year now, and from my STD's which were sent about 6 months ago we have 33 booked. I know that there are still more to book, I would guess anywhere from 5-20 people??


I have also had my invites done for months now and seeing as the wedding is in Feb., I thought I would wait until the summer is over and send out my invites in Sept/Oct. to refresh the memory of those that are waiting to book. My invites are a boarding pass design (3 passes per invite), with formal invite wording on the first, accommodation pricing on the second, and contact/rsvp on the 3rd.


Well Carnival has just said that they will be taking back the rooms set aside for my group by the middle of August if they don't have deposits and names. So if people book, it will be at whatever the going rate is, because the price fluctuates up and down...


So....my dilemma is for the accommodation pass. Right now I have it broken down between inside, oceanview and balcony pricing. If I send out the invites in Sept/Oct., the pricing would then be at the going rate rather than the group rate I had secured because Carnival would have taken the rooms back. How do I word this?

    • 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?
