Allison's Wedding Planning Bio - Tequilla Here I come!

Recommended Posts

On to the kids in the wedding... although I love the idea of an all white wedding, or at least having all of the guests wear some very light shade of beige or ivory, we have decided to have our sons wear orange.  After much searching, I was able to locate orange linen shirts from Janie and Jack.  Yes, I know that the wedding is almost a year away, but who know if I will be able to find orange at a later date... so with that, I took the leap and just ordered one size up.  Fingers crossed until next April!

Sorry the picture is so small, but at least you get an idea of the color.  I feel like it is not too bright but is definitely orange versus the coral color that is more common.

We also got our engagement photos back... here are a few.  My out of control bangs need to be photoshopped but I am really happy with them, especially being that we were both born in Denver and all of the photos were taken downtown.

Here is my next purchase... kind of a splurge but way of justifying it is that I am spreading the costs out over months... This makes sense, right?!?!  I have always really wanted a matching swimsuit and some sort of cover up or tunic.  Something different than my ususal cotton dress or whatever, so I decided on this kind of retro Trina Turk set.  I love it- but now have to convince myself to keep it tucked away until next year.  Hmmm... I am noticing a theme here along with my wedding dress!trina suit.jpgcover.jpg

Okay, so things are coming around.  With a pretty much horrible experience with Delphine Press, (I can't wait to write a final review of this company... but I guess that can wait until the end of my wedding!) I finally received my STD's and got my envelopes back from the calligrapher and could not be more pleased with how the envelopes came out.  I am obsessed with how the colors match the orange and fuschia that I am incorporating.  I can't wait for my guests to get them and then the real countdown to begin!

    • 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?
