Breaking the news about the DW

Recommended Posts

My FI and I have been together almost 14 years and we have always talked about having DW wedding. Once the engagement happened we actually tossed around the idea of having the wedding at home, this bummed a lot of people out as they were really looking forward to going away. In the end we decided to stick with what we have been dreaming about for a long time and will be having a DW wedding in Jamaica. So far we have 41 people booked.

I love your idea! I wish we would have done something fun like that. I LOVE games and theme parties! My brother already had his wedding planned for the following summer when we got engaged, so we talked about it with my parents and told them we wanted to do a DW and my mom said "I will pay you to have a DW!" She loves traveling and hates wedding planning! So we planned it for 6 months after my brothers(we talked to him and my SIL about it first too). It's great because we got to live the big at home wedding through them and then everyone close to us gets to jet off for a week in mexico while it's freezing here in Canada! And my brother and SIL will be celebrating their honeymoon too! We can't wait :)

Did anyone feel the need to "run-it-by" people first before making the official DW decision?

We know it's what we want, but there are also some "key players" we want to be able to share our special day with...should we just get the feeler out on those special people before announcing to EVERYONE that it will be a DW?

    • 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.
