HI from Chicago :)

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say HI!  I too am from Chicago and planning a June 2012 wedding. :-) we are getting marred on June 29th in the Dominican Republic.


What I would suggest is get in touch with a travel agent.  There are some that offer services for free.  The company I went with is Free.  The Travel Agent can help get you information on different resorts/hotels in the area of your choice as well as pricing.  Might be helpful.

Welcome!  I too am from Chicago and we are getting married in Riveria Maya on May 5, 2012 at the Azul Sensatori.  I have gone back and forth so many times about which resort but fell in love with certain things at the Azul Sensatori.  All we have done is locked in the date but I really need to get planning.  Good luck with everything!!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
