Could not have been more perfect

Recommended Posts

In June 2009, my fiance Dan and I went to NYC for vacation. Our hotel was only a couple of blocks from Central Park, so after dinner on our first evening there, Dan suggested we take a walk in the park. We walked for a bit and came across rental horse and carriages. Dan asked if I'd like to take a ride instead of walk, so I agreed. You would think at this point that I would know something was up, but no, haha! As we rode, we asked the driver to stop periodically so that we could take pictures. As we neared one of the lakes, Dan asked the driver if he would take a picture of us in the carriage, so the driver obliged. As the driver raised the camera to take a picture, Dan dropped to one knee in the carriage and pulled out a ring! I was so shocked that I held my hands up to my face in that "OMG, I can't believe it!" pose. Obviously, I said yes! I think the driver was just as excited, and he dashed around the carriage to take as many pictures as he could. He actually got several shots of Dan on his knee. How many people have pictures of the actual moment? I didn't think Dan had the whole horse and carriage thing planned out, but he said it "seemed right" and that he just wanted to get it over with that night so he wouldn't stress about it for the rest of the vacation!

    • 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?
