May/June 2011 bride...Hello!!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm having such a great time going through the forums learning and getting ideas from everyone's fabulous destination wedding. So THANK YOU!!!


Okay...so I got engaged on New Years Day this year and will hopefully get married in May/June 2011. We've been struggling with family on whether we're having a destination wedding or not. It's been a back and forth and *fingers crossed* we will be able to move forward with a DW.


We are considering either Hawaii (Oahu) or Cabo for our DW. There are pros and cons to each of those places. For example, I know Hawaii will be super expensive so I would really need to research and budget. We recently bought a new home so we are on a bit of a budget. We are thinking about only 20-30 people will be able to attend so maybe renting a vacation home or villa and having the reception dinner there. I figured that would save $$ and we can all share accomdations since it will only be family and bridal party. As for the ceremony my FI is Catholicso it will need to be in a Catholic Church. I've reserched and there are catholic churches in each place.


If anyone has any tips, suggestions, or experience they like to share I would greatly appreicate it!!


OH...another thing we will be paying for our grandparents, parents, and my younger brother (flight and stay) so that's why we will be on a TIGHT BUDGET! Is this doable?? We are pretty causal so no need for formalities.

    • 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?
