Yeah that's what I will probably end up doing! I normally do tan before I go because I am pretty fair skinned but am trying not to tan now because its so bad for the skin, but I think this is the one time I am going to have to just do it otherwise my photos will be horrendous with not just tan lines but burn lines haha!

I have never gotten a spray tan before ... but maybe pre-tanning will help you, also suggest wearing a strapless bathing suit to avoid tan lines!

 

How is everyone doing? I feel like we haven't spoke in a while.  I am busy planning our stag and doe, yes we are now having one, again, FI got his way :D​

We leave on November 11 @ 9:30am, I know I cannot believe that a year has gone by so quick... it is really starting to be real now, all of our guests are super excited and people cant stop talking about it, it is going to be so, so much fun!

 

I am not 100% sure I know I am ready I have everything that I need and I am organized, just have to pack! But as soon as I sleep I am having nightmares that everything that can go wrong does... even things that I know will be fine, and seriously it is what it is I am not worried at all, but my subconscious apparently cant stop worrying about it so hence the no sleep or very, very little!

 

I am done work a week tomorrow and then Friday am scheduled to run around getting poked and waxed and then Sunday there is a group of about 10 of us girls that are going in for a kind of nail party so that will be a lot of fun!!!!!!

 

Don't worry I will make sure that I am back to post pictures and have advice and tell you girls all about it, I know why people have babies after they get married I am not sure what I am going to do with all of my free time! LOL

Ohhhmg goodness!!! The 11th that's sooooooo close!!! I wouldn't be sleeping either! I have been having nightmares since I started planning lo! I can't even imagine what I'll be like getting close to the wedding lol! I am glad to hear everything is all done and now you just have the fun stuff left!

 

I also keep thinking what am I going to do with all my time once this is over? I told my FI I would start planning on babies and the nursery lol! We do plan on having babies at some point but as of right now not sure when... depends on whether I go to school or not... kind of scary to even be thinking about it lol!

 

Anyway I cannot wait to see all your photos and hear all about your trip and the wedding!!!

Hey ladies!

 

I really haven't been great about coming on here consistently even though I joined months ago as soon as we decided on the ILA as our resort. I have however found some time to read most of the posts and they've all been so helpful! I can't believe how fast time is flying...we get married Feb 4th! What is everyone doing for gifts for their guests? I'm torn on a few ideas, although I seem to keep coming back to personalized sunglasses...I think it would be really fun to do a group shot on the beach! LOL Any suggestions? Also, is anyone planning a catamaran excursion for their group? If so, are you booking ahead with your TA or waiting until you get down there? Any info is greatly appreciated! :)

I am planning on getting every couple/single a bottle of Havana Club Rum as their gift. I am guessing most people would want some (and for those who don't drink I am getting coffee). We are planning a group excursion to Havana for our group but we're just booking that through our photographer Alex, who is going to get us two 16 passenger vans and a tour guide so it should be great and a lot cheaper then the regular tour!

We sent everyone luggage tags... I wanted to do something more but the fact that we have 50 people coming is a little overwhelming when it comes to getting them all something! Congrats on picking the resort that was one of the hardest things for me!

My original plan for favours were fans.... we will see, I don't know if they will be completely useless.  We are bringing a reusable cup down for everyone, hoping the front desk will give them out as people check in.  I have to email Giselle about this.....

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
