Also the STD I'm def doing - as Tonia mentioned it's hard to send out invites without pricing so I want to make sure I have all the info first but don't want to wait too long to let people know location and date so they can start saving up.

 

PS I love the way your passport invites came out! I'll def check out AllurementsbyRebecca! thanks for sharing!

I found a template for the boarding pass invites! I can send you the link if you want to send me an email (toniabruyns@gmail.com)  it took me a few minutes to figure out how to actually put things on it, but now things are going well :) I've cerated my STD on Vistaprint and we are doing pictures this weekend and then I will be able to order them :D For the location I'm just putting "somewhere sunny and warm" and the Date as "January 2015" at least this will give people a heads up that it is destination and the time of year... since we won't know specifics until later on. But if anyone asks, we will be telling them our desired dates of travel and see what happens.

We are going to Puerto Plata since it's cheaper - but would love to one day head to Punta Cana. Right now our budget didn't allow us too many expenses since we're saving up for the wedding PLUS it's during the July 4th holiday (we're celebrating my birthday so date wasn't flex).. but I'm looking forward to it either way! :)

Yeah I can see how that time of year could get expensive! It will still be super beautiful :)

Those are beautiful! I FINALLY found a template to make my own and I've gone with the boarding pass invites. I'm hoping it will be a bit cheaper than getting someone to make them but who knows lol. I enjoy attempting to be crafty!

Hi! 

 

We have finally set a date! August 8, 2015 and although it is very far in advance, I would love to start planning and love to see that there are already some 2015 brides out and about!! YAY I am not crazy or alone!! Still have not settled on a destination, but am leaning towards Jamaica.. Any advice on how you ultimately decided on your locale? Not the hotel or resort, but the actual destination??? I would love to hear your thoughts and reasoning! 

 

xoxo 

 

CongratulatioN! keep looking at this site and search for any item you think of, you will be surprised what has already been written by guests here!

I love the "Somewhere sunny and warm" Idea! I think I will def use that on our STD's.

Thanks again!

hope you got my email :) sorry it took a few days! I chcked my email via my phone while at work and then forget to check again when I got home to send you the stuff! amd use away :) I'm sure I took it from something I saw on here... just a good way to hint to people it is destination without having the exact place picked!

I'm totally in the same boat! everytime we think we have somewhere picked, we see somewhere else we love... GAH! I've been told this is the hardest part of planning a destination wedding... actually picking the resort! I'm hoping we have finally chosen the place. We found one we love and it is in the price range we are wanting our guests to spend. Here's to hoping we just stop looking now lol

After a much needed heart-to-heart with my fiance and hearing feedback from my family, we've decided to move our wedding to Jellyfish Restaurant in Punta Cana. It's much closer to the US and flights are cheaper plus we absolutely love it so it just seemed like a good decision. It was hard for us because we completely fell in love with Roatan, it truly is paradise and we're actually considering it for our honeymoon or for a vow renewal but it will always remain dear to our hearts. We're planning on putting down a deposit this fall for our date of June 25, 2015, we couldn't be more excited!! Now just to decide which resort is the most affordable and the best fit for our family. Hopefully we'll have STDs out by January.

    • 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?
