I have to say Ditto to this too... my FI is unbelievably picky eater, and can be impossible when they don't get his personalized order right... he gets anxiety sometimes over trying new foods and the last thing I want is a groomzilla on a hypoglycemic rampage from not eating the whole week we're there cheesy.gifPlus there was one time on the cruise we took last summer that we were turned away from breakfast because of dresscode, so I'm a little paranoid about that too... so it's refreshing to see that it's not so strictly enforced.

true true... the facetime thing is a good idea too for talking around the resort too... and with skype you can send text messages... but I'm still going to use walkie talkies and pick a channel for the people who don't have smart phones yet, like my FIL.  I'll pick a channel for the group and then you can always tell whoever pages you on it to switch to a different channel for your conversation.   Plus, I'm not sure what I'd think about leaving my IPhone on the beach or at the pool when I went into the water, I suppose that's a plus of having a swim up.   I guess another plus of the swim up would be having your room phone so close by too.

I just read something in a DW book that said make sure you put bug spray on your legs before putting on your dress.  Does anyone remember bugs being a problem at EDR?  Never even thought of mosquitoes and the like being there, which I should have since we have those crazy black spotted African mosquitoes from hell here for half the year now.  Still should I be preparing for something like insects?  Should I put those OFF wipes in my OOT bags?

oooo yea that's a good question.  I talked to my friend who honeymooned in riviera maya b/c i insisted that she pack a travel size off and I think she said bugs weren't a problem, but I'd like to hear it from someone who's been to EDR...

    • 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?
