Hi Ladies! We finally booked our date at the Beach Palace for Feb 12, 2011. What a relief! Now on to the fun stuff (invitations and dresses!)We are doing a "symbolic" ceremony on the rooftop there. Has anyone got their dress or registered yet? Is anyone else using a travel agent?

Congrats on booking your date! Thats such a load of your shoulders!

 

We're going back and forth about using a TA. The first few "group quotes" we've received have been really high, so then we thought we'd just people to book on their own, and now my FI's co-workers wife is working on a quote for us, and has offered to not take a commission to give us a better price.....she's just hoping to get her name in with our friends and family. Honestly it'll come down to what the best rate for our guests is!

 

We registered ages ago, just wanted to get it out of the way. I've done far too much dress shopping....I'm hoping that I'm getting closer. There are some DIY projects I want to do but am holding off until we have a better idea of what our numbers look like!

I got my dress. Its a shorter tea lengh dress. We registered at Crate & Barral, Target and Home Depot. I sent out the STD's in March. Booked the hotel and photographer. I have picked out decorations and accessories ,but havnt purchased them yet. I am holding off on invites as well.

 

We have I think 45 nights booked so far.

Wow sounds like you're super organized!

we're not going to bother with official invites, as we sent out the STD and made a website. Everyone is pretty much being kept in the loop as things progress with pricing for packages! I just bought my dress!!! One more box checked off. I'll be much happier once we have the vacation booked...and then have an idea of how many people actually will be joining us!

I'm worried about timing of the ceremony / pictures / reception as far as sunlight, etc goes. I only have my videographer and photographer for 5 hours and I'm trying to fit everything in, but we can't start our reception until 6p.

 

What are y'all doing??

Hey Ladies!
How are you all doing??

 

To answer the question above about photography, I'm actually getting a little worried about the timings as well! we have the photographer for 6 hours. I'm worried there won't be a lot of time between the ceremony and reception for the couple pictures before the sunsets!!! Our photographer is coming at 2:30, and staying till 8:30, so hopefully we are able to start the dancing fairly quickly b/c I definitely want some of that stuff too!

 

we leave in 1 1/2 weeks......any one else starting to feel the stress??

back from Dreams Tulum.....and it was amazing! If anyone has any questions feel free to ask! My advice to you is not to stress too much, once you get down there things are pretty organized! We were rained on during the ceremony, and then again while we were taking pics......considering it could have been a disaster, it actually all went very smoothly!

Good luck to future Feb 2011 brides!

    • 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?
