Congrats! Your wedding looked wonderful! I was just wondering if I could wear my dress all night or not, wasn't sure if that would go over or not. I figure I paid enough for it I should be able to wear it at least one full night. LOL

Alberto at the Sunrise salon did my hair and he was FABULOUS. Amazing. I can't say enough great things about him. He is as good as everyone says. Book him early. Sofia did my daughter and she sucked. I was very disappointed. It is very windy but the saide thing seems to hold up pretty well. I was deflated by the end of the night but it was still cute but it lasted throughout the ceremony. I have a live feed of the ceremony so I can send you the link. You see my hair blowing a little but it looks cute not stupid lol. no mosquitos at Tucan but I did get eaten up at Traitorria the night before at the Golf course although the food was great. I was not hot at all- the breeze was great for that. Although I couldn't sit too much lol. I loved my dress and wore it all night to the swing bar and everything. I would have slept in it if my husband would have let me lmao. I don't know about the welcome dinner.. I did it at Arrecifies and while I wasn't crazy about the dinner there the ambience is great and it is really nice place. La Traitorria was good food but the bugs were tough to take. I love the Mohanana )whatever) chinese food in sunrise but it might not be fancy enough. sorry I am not good with that lol.

 

Thanks girls. it was a dream come true!

Great pictures! And thanks for the CD info, I was wondering how they do that as well.

 

How long did your hair take? I'm trying to make appointments for my bridesmaids and I'm having a hard time figuring out what time I should schedule it. It would be easier if I knew how long it was going to take.

And I got so much from them and I was so nervous but I am thrilled so far and I am getting 3 books and tons of pics and video. Thrilled that they came out so cute! Here is the link to facebook if anyone wants to check out smilemarket -they were phenomenal to deal with and you get so much from them! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.268761783204339.66655.122245387855980&type=1

 

Anyway I was so worried about the song situation but you really don't need to worry and you don't need that many. One song for the men is more than enough they actrually played my husband's song while I was coming in the horse and carriage which was fine (KC & JOJO All my life). as my little girls got out of the carriage with my maid of honor they did their song which didn't play all the way through (Over the rainbow) and than as I started to walk they put on my song (Michael Buble -crazy love) which was 4 minutes and didn't even play half of. I had another song for the sand ceremony (marry me) which they played for a minute and than a minute for the signing of the papers (a thousand years) and than our processional song (everlasting love). I had way too many songs on my CD but it doesn't matter because she numbers them herself and plays what u want where u want but she played a different song for my signing which was fine but than i heard it switch to the song i requested lol. no one but me noticed anything to do with the music. I had wanted to surprise my husband with crazy love by michael buble his favorite song when i walked down the aisle and he said he was so emotional about seeing me he never noticed the song lol. You can hear all the songs and how much or long they are on the video.

 I wore my dress ALL night. Exactly how I felt! Everyone applauded when I got on the bus, into the lobby and into the swing bar. It was awesome.

 

They give you an hour and a half for hair and an hour for makeup and I took the whole time. My sister's hair took about an hour. depends how much hair you have I guess but leave yourself plenty of time you don't want to stress about that. I made everyone in my family hair appointments and it stressed me out lol. Make sure you confirm all the appointment times you make with Karla when you get there. 

 

I made my salon appointments 3 months before my wedding.

    • 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?
