Planning our Wedding – Blau Marina Varadero, Cuba November 20, 2013

Recommended Posts

So I wasn't too pleased with my flip flops and felt they were a bit dull so I blingged them up

I bought some crayons and the Dollar store and some small plastic bags....this is my creation

700

 

 

I assembled our Survival Kit, which has

  • First Aid kit 
  • Lip Balm
  • Mini Sunblock
  • Mini Shampoo
  • Nail File
  • Mini Conditioner
  • Purell

 

700

 

Given that we have six children combined, we are going to be playing a Trivia Game (similar to the shoe game) with them during the reception wherein the MC will ask them various questions (Ie which parent is most likely to put a red shirt in the laundry of whites) etc.  so I've created these signs

And finally (for now) made the labels for our Travel Mugs

Very cool! Can I ask what you used on your flip flops to jazz them up? The writing in particular...

During the cocktail hour, while the guests are waiting for us to return from taking pictures, I am leaving a Trivia Card Game at each table for them to work together to answer the questions.  The table the has all the answers correct, wins a prize (ie box of chocolates to share or I'll find something in Cuba to pick up for everyone, maybe key chains)...Prepared the Trivia Game in the form of a boarding pass

    • 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?
