November 2012 Brides?

Recommended Posts

McLecker, we decided to only send invites to those who are definitely or most likely planning to attend. We included the main invite and a schedule of events (highlighting events that are hosted so guests can better plan). Of course, all of this information is also on our website, so the mailed invite was not entirely necessary... just a formality that a lot of people like and that some generations consider a must :-). If you can save money and not offend anyone, I say awesome!

These are nice! I was also considering something like this that we could put up: http://www.etsy.com/listing/83520935/quaker-marriage-print-grape-vines.

I just feel like all my friends who have guest books just have them sitting away in drawers. These could be up as reminders of our big day. thoughts?

I love the luggage idea and was going to do that myself so it was a favor/seating card in one!  Where did you find them at?  flip flops are a darling idea.  I saw it on Michaels.com website but it didn't have a price attached...

 Ahh gotcha. Fair enough. We are up to 60 people booked now (double what we expected) so there is no budget for invites. Hope the older guests aren't offended..... I don't want to be tacky  but I do need to feed them when they get there... :)

Not tacky at all! I feel like a lot of paper things are becoming obsolete with technology, and if people have already booked, then they don't need anything extra printed!

 

Woo-hoo for 60 friends and fam to celebrate you two!

    • 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?
