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...

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
