You got the new prices for a 2011 wedding? wtf!  Beverly used to give everyone different answers but Chandlyn is getting a bit ridiculous!

As a wedding planner myself this is just starting to drive me crazy. The reason I picked a destination resort is because I didn't want to have to deal with any of this stuff. But now I see I have to go into wedding planner mode and start whipping people into shape down there to get some answers!!


The first thing Chadalyn should have done was figure out which brides she needed to contact immediately (with weddings coming up soon) and tell the rest of us she would get back to us shortly. And, why publish new prices if they weren't going to honor them until 2012?!? But actually I got the new price for my wedding on 9-10-11 but from what I'm reading on here, some of you didn't. This is nuts, I am going to call and speak to a manager and get back with you guys..

Congrats Ashley on your wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!  The pictures are fantastic and you looked so beautiful!

OK, this is going to cause a lot of problems between Chandlyn and the rest of us 2011 brides..


can you post the email she sent you confirming the 2012 rates for your 2011 wedding? This is unreal....


Chandlyn told me she cannot adjust the rates as they come from her head office, if that is the case how can she offer 1 bride 2011 rates and 1 bride 2012 rates... Something is fishy here.


None of us like to be ripped off, and it's not that i'm saying they're trying to take our money from us however, if they're offering it to 1 then they should have to offer it to all of us..


ugh so frustrating!!!

On a lighter note, I put together my bouquet last night... your feedback is appreciated as I can still tweak them etc.


Please note the length hasn't been cut yet and I haven't put the wrap around the stem.. I just put the arrangement together last night at 10pm!! haha

Hey AshleyL,


OMG that's even better that the groomsmen get up are from old navy :) We have little guys and big guys (boys from 50lbs ranging to my fiances best friend at 300lbs) so old navy is perfecto !!!!!


Thanks for the tid bit !! I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for their get up at Old Navy.


My fiance wasn't going to wear a suit, but I like the concept of the beige suit and no tie looks very sharp :) I just hope he likes the idea :)



As for the other girls having a hard time Chandlyn getting back to them, so am I :( oh well !! I got about 7 months to go so Im not worried JUST YET :)

Yes they are real touch, they're actually on sale at Michael's this week. The calla's are 2 for $5 so the whole bouquet only cost me like $30 bucks!!

Gorgeous!! I am still undecided on flowers...its the last thing to decide for the wedding and I am having such a hard time. Is anyone leaving flower decisions until they get there ans sit down with Beverly?

    • 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?
