Ok ladies ! I'm back, got home from DR last night. Got soooooooooo much accomplished. My girlfriend and I went together and had a blast but we really did move around a lot . 4 resorts in one day. Too many drinks to count (lol) and visited the restaurant we plan on having it at ( off property) I wanted to confirm that was the right decision , and I am now sure it is ! It's going to be great to take the guests off property for an " adventure " and I love the exclusivity of it all. My GF loved Punta Cana and loved it all so it was also exciting showing someone who has never been there. We selected the resort NoW Larimar . Now let me tell you that I went I've there thinking that was the last place if choose. Mainly because the name annoys the F out of me. Lol! But... We loved it. Miss Jali , your resort Barcelo is awesome , very pretty. We just felt that the best thing for our group was something smaller, where you didn't need a train, trolley, or golf carts to get to everything. I can see me now. Taking 20 minutes to get to the beach to have forgotten my book or sunscreen and starting all over again . Lol Meeting with the coordinator at the restaurant was great. She's like an Urban Legend. She's so damn busy all the times that she can't get to Brides in a timely fashion so everyone is out of their minds . So it was good to talk to her in person and clarify a lot . She really is a genius , yet she is overworked so I can only hope she will stick around until my wedding late next year. :0/ IBM going to respond to a bunch of the posts I've missed out on so let's see,,
Welcome back..Jealous would have been wonderful to do site visits to visually see resorts before I picked. Glad you found something you love.off resort does sound great giving guests an island peek.

1. Has anyone purchased or browsed for the sand kit?

 

2. I should wait to purchase my jewelry until I actually purchase my dress right?

 

3. Have you seen any deals on the fans? Raffia or the plain ones?

 

Im shopping this am for a little bit then i am going to bed. Im working night shift tonight boo!

I can't help with #1 or #2 but I'd try Michaels or Amazon (my go to when I need anything and don't know where to get it)

 

As for #2 I'd suggest waiting until after you get your dress. I bought my dress then got my jewlery but made sure to have it before my 1st fitting so I can see it together and if I hate it I'll have time to go get new jewlery

I wanted at least 6-7 months but it happened during our last month to"try", so I will be married carrying a 5 months old. :-) 

 

Its a lot, and the thought of having the baby right before the real planning starts makes me a little nervous but my FH reminds me all the time, "you wanted a baby" we will be alright. 

 

I was waiting a little longer to fess in here but since the subject came around, and since I will be friending a bunch of you on FB and the news is out there... I figure now is the time.

 

I am having the hardest time with choosing a dress, everyone says I will not gain that much weight since I am a healthy eater, but I know I will gain some, so from wanting a mermaid or something figure hugging I am  now in love with ball-gowns. And now I am obsessed with wanting to get a dress ASAP so I can try it on and now where I have to go in weight before the wedding. I will NOT wait after the baby since there is no way I will be in shape to go crazy dress shopping and I haven't gained any weight yet, I actually lost 5 pounds even though my little belly is showing, so I can get a dress, maybe an inch or two bigger and go from there after the baby. I will be exercising like crazy and I am not your gym girl. I hate it!!  

Congratulations that is so exciting, what an exciting time in your life!!!!!!!woot.gif

    • 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.
