No Date - No Resort, But I'm Getting Married!

Recommended Posts

Hello All!

 

I'm so excited to write my first post. :) My name is Ashley and I'm from Georgia. I got engaged on June 5th and I'm looking forward to planning our destination wedding! We don't have a date yet but are hoping for 9/10/11. We don't know exactly where yet either but it will most likely be Mexico. We started working with a planner from DestinationWeddings.com. Has anyone else worked with them?? I'm looking for a family-friendly all-inclusive resort.

 

Any tips, suggestions or advice is VERY welcome!!

Congratulations Ashley! This forum will be of big help to you!! Good luck and Happy Planning!!

 

My suggestion is spend some time on TripAdvisor re resorts - I spent what seemed like days there before deciding on a resort.

 

Good luck!!

Congrats & Welcome!! It took me 2 months to decide on a resort. That is the toughest part! You might want to search this forum about destinationweddings.com. If you just type in destinationweddings.com in the search, there is a whole thread about them.

Hi Ashley! Welcome to this great forum! I agree with Valentine Baby regarding TripAdvisor, I spent a lot of time on there looking at resorts. I started on destinationwedding.com, but I'm using TA Wendy form this forum, she is fantastic! Good luck with your major decisions and happy planning! You will love this forum!

Congrats and welcome to the forum! You're getting married on an awesome day (my birthday 9-10). My cousin is also getting married on that day. Just an FYI-I've read a lot of negative reviews on dw.com on this forum.

    • 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?
