I am not from a borough... I am from Long Island but I thought I would stop in and say hi. I am getting married next August in Cancun at the Moon Palace. I know what you mean, I did not want typical Russos on the Bay either, even if I could afford to have it there! lol I worked at the Carlyle on the Green in Bethpage and I could never have a wedding like that EVER!!!!

We will most likely get married at the Royal in Cancun but have the cermony next door at the Gran Caribe in the new Catholic Chapel. I've stayed at the Royal twice before and LOVE IT!!! I'm actually going back in 2 weeks to see the new chapel and meet with vendors. If anyone needs me to get any info or take pics just let me know. I leave on 9-5-09.

omg!!! you just took away all my worries!! Were getting married at the royal in Cancun too! and you are the only other girl on this board that apparently is, I was getting so nervous! We stayed there last year in May for a week and was in love with everything, were going back Nov 27th to confirm and do our site visit.

oolala what kind of suit did you order ur man?
I have to say it'd be pretty damn fun to compare notes!

So, this is what we bought. Got a zipcar & went over to Men's Wearhouse in Paramus on Sat. I called 3 area stores & the one on Rt17 was the only one that still carried it cuz it's on sale. It's on their website, but he wanted to try it on cuz he didn't know if he wanted a linen suit or just pants & a shirt. Still not sure about what type of shirt yet, but rest assured it won't be salmon. wink.gif

Have you been to the Majestic Elegance or Punta Cana before? We went a couple summers ago to the Majestic Colonial in PC and loved it! The DR is so beautiful!

Yea we actually went down to the majestic in the beginning of the month..long story short i've always wanted a wedding away..he could care less..so when we got engaged it basically came down to the fact that i could have what i've always dreamt of BUT..i had no clue what I wanted lol..so i drove myself nuts with like 50 websites open everyday looking at pictures of places..finally i said screw it lets just pick one island and then go there see what we like..everyone told us DR is the cheapest for ppl coming in from NY..so we decided DR, thats the one place i never been...then narrowed it down to 3 hotels..riu palace, paradisus & majestic..riu was our 1st stop & i'll leave my comments to myself on that one..Majestic elegance was our 2nd and we booked it on the spot.

Ha! I know what you mean about obsessing over which hotel to go with! That was the hardest part of this whole planning experience! Anyway, it's great you were able to do a site visit (or did I misunderstand?) - that has to help A LOT! We're flying blindly here. I visited Puerto Vallarta a long time ago, but we haven't been to our resort. I know I love that city for its beauty & culture and we're just going off others' reviews here and Trip Advisor and having faith that it'll be great. fingers crossed we'll love it.

    • 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?
