Hi Everyone:


I am so excited. I am finally engaged to a man better than my dreams! We've been friends for about 5 years now and dating for almost 3 1/2 years. He is honestly my best friend and I couldn't be more honored to take this journey to becoming his future wife. However this road trip will be a bit bumpy as we are two people who are at the opposite sides of the spectrum...for instance:


  • I am 'Splack' of Haitian and Honduran descent born in NY...He is Indian born in Guyana
  • I am a practicing Catholic...He's a practicing Hindu
  • I'm loud and crazy...He's quiet and calm
  • I'm an only child...he's the older brother of 4 sisters
  • I'm social and outgoing...He's the reserved type, well until he gets to know you
  • I'm a spender...He's a saver
  • I am spontaneous and will do almost anything once...Him...mmm..not so much rolleyes.gif
  • I want a Destination wedding...He wants to stay here in NY


Yet somehow with all the differences, we have become an amazing compliment and match to one another. So planning this wedding with our crazy families should be fun. Everyone has an opinion and our faiths are equally important to us...It's never a dull moment with us!


I am excited to be officially using BDW! I fell in love with this site about year ago and have been secretly stalking it ever since. I love the ideas and advice and can't wait to use them while dishing some out of my own.


Thanks for reading and happy planning!

Debating between Playa Del Carmen, MX (My #1 fave), Miami, Fl or Puerto Plata, DR...

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
