Any 2012 brides out there?

Recommended Posts

 I am a 2012 bride but i need some help getting started, we have decided on the Rui Palace in Punta Cana. And we are hoping for june or early july. My problem is how do you get started who do we contact? and are they trustworthy and reliable? There is so much work to do and its hard to know where to start. If anyone can help that would be great.

Congratulations!!! First step is to pick your place(which you have) and the date.

Contact a travel agent to get the rates & info about group discounts. Each resort has their own policies, so you may need to do room blocks to receive group rates.. Just an FYI air fare is not out yet so you will have to wait for those rates.

Great Thank you for the tips they will definitely help us start.. My next question is we have been reading about the legal stuff and it seems like a pain to get a marriage license down there is this true? we had an idea of getting our certificate here, and getting married quietly in the court house and not telling our family just to avoid the headache of dealing with all the legal mumble jumbo

Forgot to include TA info. I would recommend using one of the TAs from this site. I am using Teresa & she has been excellent and so helpful with everything. You can fill out info from here and Tammy (host) will send your information to one of her agents. (this is what I did)

As for the legal stuff, for Mexico we have to be at our resort 3 days prior to the wedding and also have to get our blood taken from a doctor at the resort(which is an extra $200 for both of us).  I am not too sure about the license and how it works yet. We originally were going to have a legal ceremony in Mexico but now my FI & I are debating just going to the court house before hand & keeping it quiet!

It maybe just easier!

Hello Fellow 2012 Brides -

 

So, I just realized that I never subscribed to this thread.  I remember seeing it and I thought I sent everyone a shout out but I don't see that I ever did.  Anyway, I'm also a 2012 bride getting married May 5, 2012.  Yay!  It feels like I've been planning F-O-R-E-V-E-R!  In reality, I kind of have.  Ha!  I kind of took a little break from planning but I think it's time to get on the ball with things again.  

 

I just wanted to say Hi! and I hope all of your wedding plans are going well!

-Norma

You should contact my TA! Her name is Linda and she has been doing destination weddings for 30-ish years! She is the manager at Year Round Travel Inc. She's fabulous and found me the most amazing rates. She works out of the Toronto area so she'd be able to help you. Her contact info is duts@bellnet.ca, just let her know that Ashley Howard referred you and she'll hook you up! Happy planning :)

    • 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.
