April 2012 Melia Caribe Tropical Brides

Recommended Posts

Planning is going well... can't believe it's only 3 months away!!! Crazy!! Still quite a bit to do. But I just received most of my OOT bag contents, my bridesmaid gifts and some other little things like paper umbrellas and fans. I'm starting to wonder how in the world we're going to get all this stuff down there, lol!


We did end up switching the whole wedding to the Jellyfish though, and I'm excited about that. My biggest concern right now is my wedding band... still haven't found one, and my e-ring is very hard to fit a band to. I may have to go with custom and I just don't want to spend the money, haha.


How are is your planning going??

I can't believe how time has flown either!!  This time in 3 months I'll be getting ready to board a plane! Eek!!


We ordered the last of our stuff for the OOT bags and it should be here soon.  I was having a hard time finding a place to order travel mugs from but in the end, we decided to go with Discount Mugs.


I have no idea how we are fitting everything into our luggage either! Lol!!  I wan to start packing now but FI says I should wait until at least the beginning of April....I'm thinking March!


The pictures I have seen of the Jellyfish look amazing!  FI and I went shopping for our wedding bands before Christmas, so there are now sitting in a drawer at home just waiting. 


I don't what else to plan.  I guess I will have to pick some must have photography shots and I still have to make some hair flowers for my mom and sister and make flowers for the cake,

Hmm... photography shots, I didn't think about that. I think I'll just trust the photographer to figure that out, haha.


What are you putting in your OOT bags? I got mugs from Discount Mugs as well. Shipping is awful to Canada but I couldn't find anything in that price range here anyway.


Have you figured out gifts for your parents and bridal party? I'm having trouble figuring out gifts for my parents - they are separated so I have to get two gifts... for FIs parents, we are making a photo book of their family.


I have NO idea what to get for our flower girl (1.5 years old), ring bearer (1.5 years old) and junior usher (7 years old). Do you have any children in your party?


It's three months from today for me, ahh can't wait!!!

I want to give our photographer a list of shots we want and show him the style we like.  Our photographer is a friend who is coming down with us.  He does do photography professionally but weddings he doesn't normally do.


In our OOT bags we have the mugs, advil, playing cards, notepads, pens, inflatable coasters (so they can bring the mugs into the pool), hand sanitzer, kleenex, gum and mints.  I think we are done with them finally, just waiting for our last shipment from Oriental Trading.  I agree with you about the mugs.  Could not find anything else I liked and the minimum order quantity with some other sites is huge!! 


For parents, we will probably do photobooks.  We are not having a bridal party so, luckily, we don't have to worry about that.  I've seen some other brides on here doing special OOT bags for their bridal party.  Maybe you could something similar for your parents??


We may have one flower girl, she's 7, and we have already gotten some separate things to go into her OOT bag.  For your 7 yr old, does he have a favorite game or character?  Those are tough!!  I find girls much easier to shop for since I get things that I wanted when I was little! Lol!!

Can't believe we are getting soo close!!  Getting more excited by the day.  Only a few small things left to check off the list.  My bachelorette party is the weekend and I have no idea what is planned for me.  Should be interesting!!


How is everything with you?

    • 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?
