Recommended Posts


Our centerpieces provided by Dreams Riviera Cancun.




I purchased my shoes at Kate Spade outlet. I removed the bow. I searched for these starfish brooches in NYC at a wholesale store but you can purchase them online. I thought it was a great touch!  Loved my shoes!!  I also added rhinestones to each of the bouquets. I purchased these at Wona Trading in NYC as well!


We purchased this picture frame that was used for our sand ceremony from linen & things. I had my husband caulk it so the sand wouldnâ€t leak out. We bought sand online from Joanne Fabrics. This is perfect because we have it in our living room and it looks great

I purchased the basket from Michaels. I placed the pashmina favors in the basket. I added an oval sticker monogram with a ribbon. These were great gifts because it is breezy at night by the water. This was a HIT at the wedding! I purchased 4 orange and 1 hot pink parasols that were used to decorate the ceremony.  The colored sheer fabric for the arch was rented from Deco Cancun. I purchased several different sizes of real and fake starfish and spray painted them the colors of our wedding. These were used to decorate the runner at ceremony as well as the guest book table, wedding cake table, & guestâ€s tables.

    • 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?
