Hi ladies!!


My fiance and I have been engaged for over two years and we're planning a destination wedding for 2015 somewhere in the Caribbean. I've been planning this wedding for well over a year and a half now and I have a ton of information from so many different venues that it's insane but we haven't put a deposit down anywhere as of yet. I've looked at Costa Rica, Belize, the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Turks & Caicos, St. Thomas, St. John, Jamaica, Panama, Antigua, Anguilla, Puerto Rico, and St. Lucia but as of now our first pick is St. Lucia, followed by St. Thomas, the Bahamas, Anguilla, and lastly the Dominican Republic. Looking at St. Lucia my fiance and I just fell in love with the Pitons and the town of Soufriere but the prices for accommodations are through the roof so we'll see how that plays out. I've noticed that a lot of brides choose to get married in Mexico and even though I've looked into a little bit, it's really just not the scene for us. All-inclusive resorts are fine for accommodations but we're looking for something a little more unique as far as a wedding venue. Our theme for our wedding is more or less a tropical beach wedding and having our ceremony in a place that's private, breathtaking, and naturally beautiful is extremely important to us, that's why we love St. Lucia! The island is filled with beautiful beaches, waterfalls, rainforests, and the southern part of the island is completely unspoiled, there's never a lot of tourists and it just fits with everything we're looking for. 


Beach Ceremony in Soufriere, St. Lucia...a girl can dream!


Couldn't you imagine having this as the backdrop for your wedding ceremony?! You just don't get better than this!


Sorry for my ranting haha but I look forward to sharing ideas with everyone and happy planning to you all :)

    • 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.
