Is anyone NOT upgrading at the resort?

Recommended Posts

I forgot to mention that we are getting the "Vow Renewal" package ... which comes included ... but then doing a la carte for any reception stuff and extras. With the amount of people we have coming, the pricefor adding people on to the wedding/reception package deals was wwaayy more expensive than doing it a la carte for us.

But it seems that everyone is looking for outside of the resorts and upgrades and whatnot. I didn't want to just let it go and then go crazy in 7 months when there is barely time ti fix it. Oh decisions, decisions.
Don't fret, Morgan is right, it's all about how much control you want to have. My wedding wasn't at a resort, but I took a really relaxed approach to the set up. I didn't really know what the tables/flowers/cake were going to look like until I saw them on my wedding day. I could have been more hands on but I was more excited to be marrying Will than to care what color the tableclothes were. I basically told the WC I wanted lots of candles and petals and I wanted our ceremony to face the ocean, and I was thrilled with what I got.

We even went for a site inspection which my WC loved because she said I was so laid back it made her job fun, lol. Some people have known how they want things to look since before they were engaged, some get inspired by magazines, in our case we knew the location was the decoration and anything extra was a bonus so we didn't stress over it. There is no right or wrong way to do it, so make it your own and do what you feel.

You are so laid back, it's great. I take that approach on most days regarding the wedding, then other days I am driving myself crazy! 9 more months of this too! AHHHHHHsmile35.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
