So New...I dont know where to start...Literally

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone!!! I figuered the best way to do this was to JUMP right in! I am newly engaged and our "unofficial" wedding date is September 10, 2011! We really want to do a destination wedding but I am sure alot of you can relate that we are extremely budget conscience. And we need to get the best bang for our buck!

 

We started looking at Cancun because we love Mexico and I cannot get away from the Dreams Resort Cancun. It looks amazing! Although I need to keep researching for other resorts and locations!

 

I am excited to read reviews and see actual footage of hotels to help make my decision! If anyone is reading this, I am also open to suggestions so fire away!!

Welcome!!

I'm pretty new to this site as well, but in the few days I've been on here reading posts and checking out pictures I feel a lot better about picking a resort to get married at! I've gone from not being sure on the location, to being ready to book the place! It's exciting and the people on this forum are so willing to help and give information.

Good luck with your plans and congrats on your engagement :)

Congrats and Welcome!

 

You sound a lot like me, I was set on the Dreams resorts, and after a lot of research picked one of them! :)

 

I suggest reading some different wedding reviews to get an idea, as well as checking what kind of wedding packages are offered for the different resorts! At least you've got it narrowed down to one area, that's the first step really!

 

Good luck!

Welcome to the forum! :)

 

There is a ton of information here on Mexico resorts, especially Dreams!! When I was planning, I found other member's reviews of the resorts to be the most help; you get to see pictures they've taken and here first-hand how their experience was!

 

Enjoy the planning process... anticipation is half the fun!! wink.gif

You sound like me also. We are still deciding on a destination. I have gone back and forth on so many different venues, places, my FI is just leaving it to me to weed out all the unmentionables cause he cannot keep up anymore. This forum is a very good place to be when you don't know where to begin. A lot of the ladies on here have a lot of experience in planning a DW and all are very helpful.

 

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.
