One week or two??

Recommended Posts

We're getting married at the Iberostar Varadoro the end of April 2010 and are debating on whether we should stay the one week or two. We were really hoping to stay 10 days so that we would have a couple of extra days to ourselves but unfortunatly, the only options are 7 days or 14 days. I fear if we stay we'll be ready to come home before the 2 weeks is up but if we don't stay,than we will be wishing we did! Any other brides out there stay for 2 weeks?? Thoughts? Recommendations?

We are staying for 2 weeks for sure! We only plan on doing this once and are going to make the best of it!! We however are upgrading to a different resort, as you said sometimes you get kinda sick of the area you are in, not to mention the food at the resort. A change of resort should mix things up a little, and we are upgrading to something that we wouldn't normally go to, it makes it a bit special for our honeymoon!

We are staying for 2 weeks. This way, we will have a week long to party with family and friends and then the other week by ourselves.

we're doing 10 days. 5 at the resort we're getting married at, and 5 at a different adults only resort for our mini-honeymoon. i dont think you can go wrong with 2 weeks! it sounds like 10 days isnt an option for you! I'd stay for 14!

Definitively two weeks! You will be busy entertaining your friends and family and preparing to the wedding, then recovering fromwink.gifThis week will go really fast.

One week for family and friends and one for your hubby and you will be a bliss.

We're only doing 1 week but I would've loved to do 2 weeks! We both started new jobs recently so won't have that much vacation in Nov, plus we want to go skiing in Feb/Mar. Work gets in the way of all the fun stuff! I say go for 2 weeks, who would get bored of relaxing in the sun?? Not me! :)

We're also doing 2 weeks and upgrading to a nicer adults only resort the second week. A friend of mine had a destination wedding last year and only stayed 1 week, and she always felt that that was her biggest regret. She was so busy on the days leading up to the wedding and spending time with her guests that she and her husband never really got to relax.

We are doing two weeks. We just don't feel we will be able to do enough given the amount of time the wedding is going to take. So out of One week we would only had a few days left to ourselves. So we will go for 2.

    • 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.
