Made these myself:

Front will have wedding week timeline and backside will have common Spanish phrases.

*note the spelling error on Republic  Thatâ€s what stress will do to you ladies, as Iâ€m normally a spelling nazi!

Weâ€ve booked HDC Photo for 4 hours on the recommendation of many brides on here.

We will be having a photographically inclined friend do our Trash The Dress session after the wedding. I will likely wear the same dress, as Iâ€m not worried about ruining it and have heard from many brides that it actually doesnâ€t really trash the dress anyway.




First dance: I initially let my FI chose this one – We are Man and Wife by Michelle Featherstone: YouTube - We Are Man and Wife Michelle Featherstone

But then I really always imagined our first dance song to be Ben Harper, so we are going with Forever and I will walk down the aisle to Man & Wife instead.


I will have all processional/recessional, dinner, dancing, first dance, father-daughter dance, bouquet toss, etc. music separated by playlists and a list of when to play each for the WC. But we are likely going to use the DJ since itâ€s the same price to rent the speakers as to have the DJ…



The bachelorette or reception dress (I havenâ€t decided yet)

Legal day:

I wanted my 97 y.o. grandfather, who wouldnâ€t be able to travel with us to the DR to have a special role in our marriage, so we had him attend the legal day ceremony as our witness prior to the trip. We had a nice lunch afterwards and voila, weâ€re married! Of course both he and FI could not keep a secret, so almost everyone knows now!

Bridal Shower:

My lovely BMs threw me a (non surprise) tea party themed shower at my FSILâ€s house:

Congrats Amy, everything looks amazing!! Great details everywhere & your dress is gorgeous on you! I remember your legal day thread - so so special to be able to have your grandpa there. I'm sure that meant the world to him. :)

    • 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.
