I think I saw a few other gals on here doing a photo booth, seemed to work out well bringing their own stuff (it would just depend on the space).

I might as well chime in here as well gals!

 

We are getting married in ERC on 11 Feb 15. I have started the process with Jessica and other than the pain in the ass to get my fiancee's divorce translated, notarized and then have the translation apostilled. I think things should go smoothly. 

 

We are just doing the basic inclusive package and no stress. Meaning, no photographers, I am sure that my friends/family can take some nice photos and I think I paid 20.00 for a lacy sundress :D

 

I think me and my ladies will do a spa day just to enjoy the pampering, but no hair or make up. I will likely just put my regular lipstick on. I know we want to look beautiful for this day, but I gotta say I am happy that my guy loves me as I am and I want him to recognize who is walking down that pier towards him.

 

We got our rings done, both custom jobs by PBR designs in Ottawa and he did an amazing job. Especially since my engagement ring is so dainty, it took a lot of work to get a band to compliment and not dominate it!

 

I believe it will be 7 in total with me and the groom, so easy peasy pudding pie! (I hope!)

 

Anyone else here have to get divorce papers done? Basically since it's my first and only wedding, I want it to be completely authentic!

 

Talk to you soon! Keep up the good posts!

@@Wrathwitch  congratulations your wedding is so soon! 

let me know how it goes....and to answer your question, this is my first marriage for both me and my fiancé , but that doesn't mean i didn't have to go through annoying paperwork, since I'm from italy lol

we chose the gold wedding package just because our italian parents levee to hang posters of their kids wedding at the house hahaha

7 guest? i wish i did a little head count yesterday with all the "maybes" and its around 80...now I'm sure not all 80 are going to be a definite  :rolleyes:

love the idea of customized rings 

good luck with everything

Hi ladies I seem to recall someone is doing a fire show. We are thinking of doing the same rather than get a dj. The way we see it, dj is getting paid to work 4 hours we will have pir first dance as soon as we arrive shortly after 7 dinner will start around 7:30 and probably take 1.5 so that brings us to 9. We also plan to do a Piñata so paying 1300 for essentially 2 hours seems crazy and so were leaning towards doing a fire show for the wow effect. I was wondering if anyone knew how long the show lasts? 30 min is my guess? And was hoping for some feedback on our thought process. Thks ladies

Oh I forgot to mention our group is only 20 and a third aren't big dancers

    • 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?
