Hi girls!

 

Wow, I can't believe it's time for voting, again! Thanks to everyone that voted me into the finals - you ladies rock! Now it's time for the final vote and I'd really, really, REALLY appreciate your help! The power of BDW is what I need to win! =)

 

Here's the message that I sent out on FB:

To all my lovely friends and family,

 

As you may or may not know, last September I entered an online contest for Weddingbells.ca. From thousands of entrants from around the country, I was selected to compete in the Destination category against one other Destination Bride. Thanks to all of your votes, I beat out the other gal and made it into the finals!! A million thank you's for all of your votes - it was a super close race and I wouldn't have beat her without all your help!

 

Then came the fun part. As a finalist, I spent the last 6 months blogging all about our adventures in wedding planning. In case you didn't have a chance to follow along the way, all of my posts can be found here: Lara Varona | Weddingbells.ca

 

So now, here's "the ask." Starting today, July 6th, the polls are open again and the voting portion of the finals will begin. Voting will take place until 5pm PST on July 27th.

 

I realize it's a lot to ask, but if you wouldn't mind taking a minute everyday from now until July 27th to visit the site and vote for us to win, Karlo and I would really appreciate it! To vote, you must register for an account on weddingbells.ca, and then click "vote for Lara" on this page: Weddingbells.ca

 

What's at stake is a fabulous prize pack containing some jewelry, a couture wedding gown and a honeymoon to Mexico! Since our wedding has already taken place, Karlo and I will be auctioning off some of the prizes (jewelry, gown and some other smaller items like skincare products and teeth whitening systems) if we do win. Then, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity (we'll be running our own poll at a later date to determine which charity) and the remainder will go towards saving up for life's next big steps: our first house, babies and all of that wink.gif

 

Ok, so thanks for taking time to read this message, and for voting us into this position in the first place. Karlo and I truly feel blessed to have had so much support along the way.

 

 

Cheers,

Lara

    • 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?
