Patty  suggested a 10hr flight to Punta Cana. My mother lives in NYC. My Girlfriend flying in from Chicago received a 14hr flight.  They both asked for a direct flight and Iâ€m afraid to call and see if she got back to them. Iâ€ve signed a contact with them and paid 2,000  to block off 20 rooms. What should I do?

 

 

Ops - I also meant to say....  That maybe you should call Patty yourself and nicely explain your quest concerns - See what kind of a responds you get from her . . . There may be a reason why she made those suggestions?

If anyone in NJ or NY needs a jeweler my guy is awesome...my ring appraised for $22k of course my FI did not pay that amount...I also purchased a necklace for my dress that was $4,900 but my jeweler sold it to us for $2,500.... AND my FI had to have a custom made ring and it was only $1,500 with 1ct of diamonds  AMAZING DEAL!!!!

I'm really sorry to hear that. A flight from NYC or Chicago to Punta Cana should not be 10-14 hours, that's for sure.  I would try calling her yourself and talking with her. I decided not to use a travel agent so I can't suggest an alternative.  Since the guests on my side are pretty travel savvy and I post all the deals I find on my wedding website, I figured that would work just fine and it's free for me. I know I don't have the connections of a TA but my guests are able to get to Cancun and stay for under $950 per person and the flight is only taking 5 hours.

From what I've read you need to make sure you have documentation for everything you bring (i.e. receipts) this includes meds as well as your wedding contract. I think there's a $$ cap for how much stuff you can bring into the country, it's high though, like maybe $10K. As long as you have receipts for all of the goods you're bringing in and can show them it's for a wedding I hear they are generally good

Do you girls every take off your ring or is it just me? I never wore rings before so I'm trying to get in the habit of always wearing it but it's very weighty (I guess that's a good thing) so I usually take it off if I'm in the house or go to workout.

I take my ring off before I go to bed, or when I get in the house to relax (and mine is surely not as weighty as yours)!  LOL..my mom is like: "You take your ring off???"

I don't usually take it off. If it's not on my finger i think i'll panic. But i've worn rings on that finger forever, first my mother's engagement ring when i was in highschool and college and then my promise ring.
