I can't wait for our honeymoon! We're spending 1 night in FL then going on a 12 day cruise to Central America, South America and the Caribbeanwoot.gif

 

Oooo...that sounds like a blast!

It looks like I HAVE NO travel agent! No wonder I sent an email 3 weeks ago and NEVER got an answer. I am beyond angry. Apple Vacation didn't bother to inform me, or get me a new travel agent or anything!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called and I got a machine. They are going to get a piece of my mind because that is bad customer service!! I should have been informed that the TA quit or left or anything and got replaced ASAP. This is something I am not suppose to be stressing about. I am not a happy camper.

Eww - that super sucks!!  I hope you are able to get everything worked out : (

Sorry Jessica,

 

I must say I have been emailing my TA none stop. We understand each other now and its a great feeling. Have you tried a WTA?

 

 

They are wedding TA... they have their own destination wedding agents and all! Now I have to Lead of all wedding travel agents so i am guessing there won't be any more surprises when it comes to the wedding planning. She has emailed me about 3 times now and is trying to play catch up... I guess it could be worse.

I need help choosing colors for my wedding. I am very bad at coordinating/decorating and what not. I love the color teal or a turquoise and I saw  picture on this website of the girls wearing a teal dress with the fuchsia flowers and I loved it!!! Should I try to do teal, fuchsia, and gray or white? Would that even go together?

My fiance and I are getting married {courthouse} this year because we can't afford to the wedding we want. Why do the courthouse? Well due to my health issues, I need to start working on kids if I plan to have any, but we made a promise to our families to wait to have kids till we are married.

 

I have to say I just joined the site and I'm already addicted!

Atleast you have a variety. .are you going to put in oot bags or have a flip flop station? I was thinking if having guest wear a certain color as well but not sure now.

 

 

I just wish they had a lighter brown or even manly tropical colors haha- I think idk ... hahaha 

 

If I use them they will go in the Welcome bags.

 

I am defiantly asking everyone to wear white/ light beige to the wedding - honestly I really don't want anyone to stick out in the pics : )  and there are so many shades of every color that I didn't want to go with something like blue .. I figured shades of white are safe.   Plus, I don't have a bridal party so I want everyone to feel and look like they are part of the wedding not just guest at it.

This was part of the original conversation my FI and I had -  but then I have been indecisive about it --- I think there are are ups and downs.  I just started working with a TA - I will see what types of options she throws my way.

 

One questions she asked me to help her figure out if I should go somewhere different (this is assuming guest will be staying at the resort after your wedding) was "are they high maintenance"   She suggested if they are to go somewhere new after the wedding so you can enjoy your time with your new husband on your honeymoon.

    • 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.
