NEWBIE Needing Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Firstly I want to thank you guys for being so diligent on this board! It helped me to fully decide on ROR for my wedding next August!

 

But I do have a few questions on ideas, and if anyone could help me out that would be great.

 

I was thinking of doing the free ceremony with a semi private dinner and then rent out the disco for a few hours.

 

How are the semi private dinners? Do they do a good job on sectioning wedding guests away from regular diners or should I opt for a private dinner? How much per hour is renting out the disco?

 

Do you have any advice on what I should watch out for in the planning stage? Also maybe anything that I should make sure to make perfectly clear to Chandlyn and Nekeisha?

 

Thanks So Much!!!

--Melissa

I am having a private dinner, so I don't know much about the semi-private ones...sorry! But I'm sure another girl here can help you. How much per hour is renting out the disco? You can rent out the disco from 9-11 and the total cost for dj and open bar is $250.

Do you have any advice on what I should watch out for in the planning stage? Also maybe anything that I should make sure to make perfectly clear to Chandlyn and Nekeisha? Nothing in particular comes to mind. Read through the ROR threads and let us know if you have any questions!

Thanks So Much!!!

    • 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?
