Newbie - Vegas Wedding!!

Recommended Posts

OH and I have decided to get married in Vegas in August 2011.

I had always assumed would have a wedding locally, and do the whole church, reception, lots of guests and family thing but when I started looking into the organisation and the costs it just seemed so daunting, especially as we would be arranging everything ourselves, paying for the whole thing and probably doing our own invites, order of service, decorations, flowers, booking things like batchelor/ette parties etc etc etc

OH always said about getting married abroad so we decided on Vegas!!


We'll be keeping it pretty much to ourselves, as far as anyone knows we'll be going on holiday so I HAD to join so I can get excited about our secret somewhere!!!!

We're planning on taking both sets of parents and us - so a party of 6 in total and staying for 5-7 days before sending the parentals home to post our 'We got married see you after we come back' cards and we'll go elsewhere for honeymoon!!


We're so excited!!

I'm so excited its going to be really hard to keep it secret, we'll probablly tell the pareents a few weeks before we go just to make sure they have valid passports but other than that I think it'll be hard to keep quiet!! :o) I'm so excited :o) xxx

    • 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?
