Great that its resolved. My MOH is still missing in action lol and we did a group air and got 15 seats and I offered them to the first 15 people who would book and right away 15 people all but threw their credit cards at me. Price was $490 round trip. It's actually quite low- anyone who has gone to DR knows that- flights are $600 and higher unless you catch a sale but we are getting married 4th of July weekend so its considered a blackout date. Anyway she's on a cruise right now and was upset because she wanted in on the group air but couldn't communicate with me. I thought to pay her ticket- but we actually put down $1500 as a guarantee with the airlines and we dont get that money back until AFTER we fly. So I didn't really have the money to pay that AND her ticket. Then again...she hasn't even booked her room yet and all she had to pay was a $50 deposit- clearly money is not the issue since she's in the Bahamas as we speak lol...but thats why I named a Matron of honor- if my MOH drops for whatever reason, I am not alone on my big day!

 

I don't think it matters who signs. Why not have family members sign if you thinks its an issue of concern? We are legally getting married in NYC before we head to DR and both of our moms and supposedly our BM and MOh are coming to witness. But we are having our parents sign the marriage license. Is it because you plan on doing it at the altar?

I've given her small tasks, little things that I would rather not deal with and researching things that she can do in her spare time. You originally asked her to be your MOH for a reason..like agm04 said, why not have two??

Agreed, two is totally normal and acceptable! My sister will be deployed for 6 months as we'll be in the middle of planning.  We have chosen not to have a wedding party so I have a friend that'll be sorta filling in if I need the help while my sister is out of the country.  You chose your MOH for a reason and even though times may have been tough for you two recently, don't feel funny about asking other people to help out in her place whether as a second MOH or just as a good friend.

Im sorry your MOH is giving you a hard time, I am so lucky that our wedding party has been nothing but supportive and no negativity.  You should not be paying for her flight, did she not know it was a destination wedding when she agreed to be MOH?  Yes we are having a civil ceremony, so the signing will be done at the alter.  I think I am over looking the situation too much, both MOH wont care who signs I'm sure.  We are getting married in Cuba and no family member can be the witness (aka the person that signs.) So our parents cannot.

    • 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?
