Hi everyone,

My finance and I got engaged two weeks ago and I am feeling overwhelmed already! I was hoping that a destination wedding would be less stressful but I am feeling a whole lot of anxiety in just picking a resort.  We are looking at getting married in Dec. of this year and have narrowed down our options to either Riu Ocho Rios or Coconut Bay Resort in St. Lucia.  They each have their pros and cons and I am nervous about making the wrong decision.  If anyone has any opinions about either I am open to hearing them.

Hey ladies!

 

I'm in Ottawa and planning a wedding for January 2015! The location is up in the air and we are still looking at different places, but we have fallen in love with the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana. It's already stressful knowing that some of our relatives don't travel and won't be able to come... but we are hopefully having a low key reception when we return to let them celebrate with us as well. There is a lot of planning at the beginning of organizing a destination wedding and my head is going crazy with where I am supposed to begin! Any help is awesome!

Congratulations and welcome!

Now take a deep breath and enjoy it! It is stressful, but fun too... and it goes by quickly! We had a two-year engagement (getting married in about 6 weeks!) and it feels like yesterday I said yes.

Time will fly by!

    • 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?
