10 Things Every DW Bride Should Know From the Get Go

Recommended Posts

TA Maureen, thank you so much for all of your advice and information. It is truly appreciated. Just this morning I was thinking about how good it would be to have a list of mandatory things I should know about attempting to plan a DW, and then I find this post. Thanks a bunch!

Maureen, you are in a word, AMAZING!!!

 

This is a frank, TRUTHFUL rundown of what it REALLY is to have, or be planning, a destination wedding and I think a lot of brides-to-be should be required to read this before deciding if a DW is the right choice for them!! I think a lot of headaches and heartache could be spared if EACH POTENTIAL DW COUPLE reads your beautifully written "Be Forewarned" style post about the extreme highs and crushing lows that can result in deciding to get married away from home -- KUDOS TO YOU!!!

 

You are a force of nature. THANK YOU for reiterating what I know I will have to deal with (and for knowing what I've faced already since we announced our intentions) on my path to my dream wedding -- which is a DW, come hell or high water! :) Beautifully done!

totally puts everything into perspective! You totally called in on the family/friends bailing with uncreative excuses! We went from 30 people FOR SURE to about 12 people "saying" they are coming, only 5 have actually put down a deposit.

I love this list!! I nodded and laughed at each point because they were so true. I even shared them with my mom and she got a good laugh too. We're dealing with the bogus excuses right now and all of the unwanted criticism for having a DW. If our friends and family only knew I'm in the mindset that as long as FI and I are there with our parents that's all the matters. Thanks again for posting this list, it's so true!!

    • 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?
