July 2010 Brides!!

Recommended Posts

You have no idea. Since this posting I have actually removed the lime and turquoise from my colors which means I need to go ribbon shopping for my STD's. Now what am I going to do with 30 yards of lime and turquoise ribbon cut into 6 " strips!? Use it for future projects I suppose... people getting bday cards may notice a pattern....

Name: La'Chaundar Furlow

FI Name: Charles

Wedding Destination: RIU Negril, Jamaica

 

What made you choose this destination? We have both traveled to several different places, and Negril was on our list of beaches to visit. On top of that I heard they have beautiful beaches there.

 

Wedding Date: July 24, 2010

What made you choose this date? It is a year and 3 days from the date we got engaged.

 

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they? right now the colors are something in the brown family with burnt orange and cream. Gotta see this together before I make the final decision is made.

 

 

What is something unique about your wedding? It is the day before my birthday.

 

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding: I am a visual person, so planning a destiantion wedding will be interesting. I like to see pictures of everything, before I make any decisions.

 

So far I have a TA and we just got quotes on the group rates for the RIU Negril.

Can I ask what the group rates are, La'Chaundar? I got rates from one TA so far for the Riu in Cabo. Different location altogether, but I wondered if they were similar.

I'd be interested in that too La'Chaundar--- we are still trying to figure out whether or not we want to do a group thing... Probalby not since they say you all have to arrive and leave on the same day but who knows!

The group rates I got a quote for were for a 4 night stay around $680 per person for a double occupancy or $844 per person for 5 night stay. 7 nights run about $1, 162 per person. This is at the RIU Negril. Hope this helps!!!

 

By the way I stayed at the RIU Palace in Los Cabo last year, and that hotel is wonderful. Beautiful Place.

Hello fellow July 2010 Brides!!

 

Name: Sheree

 

Wedding Destination: Aruba

 

What made you choose this destination? It's a beautiful island with great weather year-round.

 

Wedding Date: July 23, 2010!!

 

What made you choose this date? We decided on the summer since we both work are in education and have July and August off. We chose the date because it would give us time for last minute planning in July and time to relax and unwind before going back to work.

 

Have you decided on your wedding colors? If so, what are they?

Not sure... I really like turquoise.

 

What is something unique about your wedding? FI and I are planning a DW in Aruba and we have never been to the island. It will definately be an adventure!!

 

 

Tell us anything else about yourself and/or your wedding:

I'm really excited to be planning a wedding in Aruba and look forward to sharing this special occasion with the ones I love.

    • 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.
