M.I.A... So much going on.

Recommended Posts

So im back, not that I've been anywhere just not really had the time or opportunity for my favourite past time of forum surfing... bummer!

 

So we're past the 5 months mark and I still dont have a dress.. yet!

I got sorted with my magic undies which are comfortable and very effective which is a combination I never imagined I would find! ha ha

 

Although I have discussed a dress design with a dressmaker as I still haven't had my measurements done I saw a nice dress from Marks and Spencer online which I thought I could use as the basis for my dress and have my dressmaker do some alterations, basically I loved the dress when it came but didnt like the fabric so I returned it only to have a major hassle with the company who refused to refund it cos the security tag had not been attatched to it prior to dispatch! Anyway after a strongly worded letter and a long wait they refunded yesterday.. Hurrah! Im now forming the basis of the top half as the design for mine but still waiting to schedule in for my measurements.

 

We are also now learning to scuba dive in time for our wedding, not bad considering I only learned to swim 2 years ago and had been petrified of water most my life! Im finding it harder to master the skills than I thought I would and was really panicky on our first lesson but definately getting better and starting to enjoy it. Not looking forward to the open water dives in a quarry, in the UK, in winter but there you go...

 

Still no joy in hearing from our travel agent regards my complaints letter, I have passed the matter onto ABTA but not holding my breath for a favourable outcome.

 

Fi and his dad have had major fallings out over money which has put a massive dampener on everything that im just trying to ignore.. the whole thing started over a disagreement about money and descended (on his dads part) into hurtful, longstanding issues which really had nothing to do with anything, least of all his sons wedding! They have made up now but I know Fi is still really hurt by a lot of things that were said and is consciously aware of not ever asking his dad for anything again in order to avoid it being thrown back in his face!

 

Whoever said that a DW would be cheaper and less stressful lied.....

    • 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?
