OMG. leaving in 5 days.  and 3 people just cancelled!!  That really messes with my life right now, I need to re-do the seating chart and move some other people around now, grrrrrrrrrr.   No fault of theirs, Ant's cousin dislocated his shoulder and now has to go in for surgery, so his wife doesn't feel right coming without him.  and his grandmother was coming b/c she couldn't stay home alone while they came, so she is bailing too.   such a giant pain in my a** right now :(

 

never mind that.  leaving in FIVE days!!   so much to do still, mostly just packing. Once I get that organized, I will feel better.

Right now, i'm stressing about writing our my daughter's schedule for my parents, as they are flying back with her and staying at our place while we honeymoon.   It's funny how all the things us moms do are just second nature, but when you write it all down....sheesh we are underpaid!!!

I just joined it!  Did I see you used wish lanterns?  How did that turn out for you?  I guess it really depends on the wind, but we are planning on doing them the night of our Welcome Drinks.

 

Which cake flavor(s) did you have?  How long did dinner take for your group? What did you provide for the DJ (CD, iPOD) for music for the ceremony?  So many last minute details to comb through! I leave in 4 days!

We used wish lanterns.  They worked really well.  Nicole was with us helping everyone to do them.  It really depends on the wind.  Hours earlier it was too windy but when we were scheduled to do them the wind was perfectly calm. 

 

We had vanilla and chocolate.  They both tasted great.  Dinner was slow (not sure of the timing - maybe 1 1/2 hours), but we did speeches, we had the DJ playing music, and people were chatting by the bar.  We hired DJ Kevan and he really knows what he is doing.  We just provided him a list of MUST PLAY and MUST NOT PLAY.  We also met with him a couple days prior.  What are you planning for your reception?   How exciting that you are getting married sooo soon!!!

We don't have all our professional pics yet, but our photographers posted previews from the sunrise photo shoot we did and the wedding. I'm obsessed.

    • 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?
