Hope everything goes great for your wedding! Not long now!! Are you all organised and ready to go? xxxx




uhhg. I wish I could say yes, but i have always been a very last minute person. So why would that change now?!!!  I had less than six months to plan everything from time of engagement to the wedding day. I think i'm doing pretty damn good. cheesy.gif  lol I mean i have the major things done. But i am still working on table assignments, escort cards, flowergirl baskets, the CD favors and centerpieces. All DIY.


 I do think it is important to have something at home for the family and friends that can't make DW. How much each bride chooses to spend or how formal will always vary greatly.  I really wanted the formal pics as well. I really want to be able to remember both days forever. It truly is like having two weddings. The way i look at it.....I only plan on getting married once. So i want to savor it!!! I do know that i have had to put alot more time, effort, energy and money into the AHR. The package at the resort is so easy. Very little rushing around to plan.


If you have questions or anything...feel free!!!!

We are having an Formal AHR with everyone in their attire from the wedding. Our is a champagne Brunch with wedding cake, dancing and photographer. We are sending out formal invitations for the DW with an enclosure card with the AHR details and the reply card will list the DW and AHR.   We booked our venue and photographer already and have order invitations.

    • 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?
