Another Newbie

Recommended Posts

My cousin and her fiance are planning a destination wedding for (hopefully) April or May of 2008. I'm helping to coordinate the wedding, a travel agent, and a bridesmaid (plus the bride is my best friend so I feel honored just to be a part of this experience)! So even though I'm not the bride, I've been helping with the research and stumbled across this site. She'll also be posting on her wedding and though we haven't had much time to look at all the site has to offer yet, we both agree this is an AMAZING resource! Wow! She was kind of sold on Dreams Cancun, but dates weren't available for the months she wanted, then we looked at relocating to Dreams Tulum but due to posts on this site we realize we need to look at another resort chain as they want a DJ to play well past 10:30 p.m. and it appears that Dreams requires it to be shut down by that time. So, we are back on the hunt. The resort needs to allow children, be able to accomodate @ 150 guests at a wedding, and if music needs to be shut down early - then it needs a club for partying. So that is our challenge. I'm sure we'll gain some very useful info from all the posts on the site. Congrats to all the brides to be on the site. I got married at Couples Ocho Rios on 02/02/02. I wouldn't have done it any other way - what a relaxing way to "tie the knot"!

Welcome to the forum! I love when I see new members who join the forum so that they can help their friend/daughter/sister plan their DW. That's soooo good of you to put this time and effort into helping her out. smile159.gif I hope you find tons of great info on here that's going to make this planning go smoothly and excitingly for the couple (as well as you since you're such a participant in this big event!). Cheers!cheer2.gif

    • 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.
