What is everyone doing about not spending the night together before the wedding? My mom is pretty big on this tradition, even though I live with my FI, but since our wedding isn't until 4pm, its not like I won't see him around the resort!!!

I am pretty sure FI and I will just stay together the night before. I dont really believe in superstitions. If thats going to be the doom of my marriage than I think there are bigger problems!!

 

I also heard if your single and try on someones engagement ring its bad luck??

We are staying together the night before - I am pretty excited to wake up with each other and share the excitement that 'today is our day'. You could always stay with your parents or bridesmaides the night before?

 

I have heard that it is bad luck to try on other peoples engagement rings......

Something Old. This stands as a tangible bridge between the bride’s past with her family and the new life she’s about to begin. Heirloom jewelry, passed down wedding gowns, and handkerchiefs are customarily used.

 

Something New. Whatever the something new is, it represents the hopes of good fortune and a prosperous future for the couple in their new life together.

 

Something Borrowed. The borrowing is meant to signify the necessity of family and friends to the happiness of the newly married couple. The borrowed item should come from a happily married woman since it is meant to transfer some of her own marital harmony and good fortune.

 

Something Blue. Blue represents faithfulness, loyalty and purity. In biblical times, both the bride and the groom would trim the border of their wedding clothes in blue denoting humility and devotion. Today, the garter tends to be chosen as the blue item.

bad luck when it rains. and that would be worse given that most of our weddings here at the forum would be outside.

 

i'm making my FI sleep in someone else's room the night before. not breaking tradition. :-)

At Dreams PC, they give the groom a complimentary room the night before if something is available... so we will not see each other the night before or the day of!! As well, he will not see my wedding dress, and I am doing the 4 "somethings"... but other than that we aren't following others :)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
