I just was re-reading your review Ann and saw your legal ceremony pictures. They are very beautiful with the sunset. You two are so cute together. Where did you find your white dress? i really like it!

well, the Hawaii photos are Paul's job, so needless to say, no - we haven't figured that out yet. but he also hasn't tried. i think the last he left it was the guy wanted to talk to us ... but paul never did anything. i just sent him a little reminder ... so I am sure he thanks you! lol

WOW. that was fabulous! thank you so, so, so much for taking the time to post all of that information on the site. i know that if it was as beneficial to other brides as it was to me, you've helped quite a few people!

 

it was funny to read your review of dreams and your welcome dinner, as brooke and i have been expecting to run into some problems with them. we knew that it was mexico and we figured that things would work out the way that they were meant to! i'm not sure who our "event coordinator" is, seeing as how they have no idea that we're a same-sex couple and think that our events are "family parties" (for anyone who reads this, dreams was not very accommodating when it came to a same-sex ceremony...or anything like that). i know that brooke has been in contact with the resort while i've been doing most of the communicating with nicole and our photographer. it's scary! we're having BOTH our welcome dinner and rehearsal dinner at the resort. knowing our luck, they'll forget to write the information down and neither will actually take place. *laughing*

 

as for las caletas, we are ridiculously excited. nicole has been nothing but amazing and we can't wait to see the magic that she works in person! if she was that good with one bride, i can't wait to see how she deals with two at the same time!

 

=)

so did you first approach them (Dreams) about a same-sex event and they weren't receptive? or is it more that you didn't want to deal with it there. that's just so silly! i hope your event turns out better than mine! but really, in the end, it was only me that noticed all the screw ups. and Marilu has been replaced, so hopefully Gaby is better. and there was an actual wedding the night of my WD, so maybe Marilu was distracted. who knows.

actually, there are a TON more of gals from Chicago - i don't think i even realized you were from Chicago until now! i've moved to Mpls, so not there anymore - but i visit often! the four of us (me, Natalie, Jenetta, and Lenita) met for drinks one night at Wild Fire - there were supposed to be like 8-10 of us, but not sure what happened to everyone! we had a great time - i know it was in the winter, since there was a big snow storm that kept some people away. anyway - if you do plan another get togegether let me know! my sister still lives in chicago - but only for another week. her and her partner and moving to Pittsburgh for her to go to school.

Aww, we missed it! I figured from your Vikings icon that you were in MN now and not previously!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
