i will check out new natalies! i was afraid to go there b.c i thought it was so expensive. i have only gone to one consignment store and kelly's closet in inman park.

Cancun was one of the first places we looked into!!!!
wow!! that cathedral is gorgeous!!!! I looked into it before we decided on Cancun and it's amazing, especially in Dec because they decorate it beautifully--you won't have to spend much in that department!! I think it should be fine b/c it hasn't really gotten cold yet...mid Nov and we haven't turned the heat on once!! I read an article the other week that said the really cold weather won't come to atl unitl jan/feb this time around.
awww i'm so excited for you!! I always secretly wanted the big dress and the cathedral setting, so post pics and I can live vicariously through you!! smile03.gif

hey carolina 24 -- I have an appt for new natalies tomorrow!!! i work in alpharetta so i just have to kind of leave work a little early. he he.

 

i agree, that church is soooo pretty. most people reserve it 18 months in advance, so i figured it was a sign when they told me i could have it on a sat @ 2pm (with like 40 days notice). They only have weddings on saturdays at 12, 2 and 7!

 

But they do NOT mess around. They gave me FOUR pdf's of things that you can and cannot do. LOL.

 

it is so funny how things work out. now i just have figure out my bridal party....my FI has 9 groomsmen (including my 3 brothers). We are really close so i am trying to decide on whether or not to put my brothers on my side or to just bite the bullet and have 7 - 9 bridesmaids. LOL. decisions decisions.

oohhh, that's so exciting about tomorrow, and it's a perfect excuse to leave work early wink.gif can't wait to hear a/b your experience. I worked with Maria the first time, but when I went back for the trunk show, she was in Colombia b/c her mom was really sick sad.gif maybe she's back now....she's very nice. When I got my dress there was another spanish lady there and I can't remember her name but she was great as well!! The only thing that sucks is the parking lol!!

 

Girl, if that isn't a sign I don't know what is!!! especiall at 2 pm, that's the perfect time--not too early, not too late!!! Sometimes we want everything the way we think it should go, but God knows better than us!! Yeah they are really strick a/b music and flowers and stuff but I'm sure it will be gorgeous. Sooo excited for you!!!

btw...we have 3 BM and 2 GM and I think it's ok. I didn't him to add someone or me to take someone away for the sake of it. but I think that your brothers on your side would be really special and it would look soooo cute, b/c it's like their giving you away too!!! my brothers are both younger than me, but so protective that they want to be the ones who give me away when the minister asks who gives this woman to be married lol!!

    • 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?
