Newbie - who didn't follow the rules

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone! My name is Angela and I am planning a destination wedding (or trying to, with trying being the key word msnwink.gif). Looking to have a date set SOON...mid to end of May 2014 is what we are shooting for.

 

I joined this forum, and never introduced myself which I am sorry for! Haha

 

I am considering Secrets Maroma Beach, but have not fully committed. I am feeling extremely overwhelmed which is why I turned to this forum.

 

Any help would be appreciated and I am fully looking forward to joining in the conversations here. :)

hi there! welcome to BDW. Jennifer is right - this forum has a TON of great info for planning and ideas. Secrets Maroma is in a beautiful area - we saw it when we were out snorkeling on an excursion. 

 

Have fun, and happy planning!

Welcome Angela....Congrats....try not to be overwhelmed. Is it because you aren't 100% sure of where you want to get married....or because there are soooo many options....(which there is) and not sure what to pick. Take your time.....take notes...figure out what is important to you and your future hubby...and look at the different/or specific resorts and see if it meets your criteria. My Godchild had her Honeymoon at Secrets Maroma.....they were so shocked at how beautiful...it was. The service...the food...the overall feeling. You will know...when you found the right place.thewave.gif

Thank you all!

 

I think i am 98% there (choosing resort - Secrets Maroma Beach).

 

I was weighing the options against Excellence Riviera Cancun, but it seems I will get more included things with the packages at SMB. 

Both resorts are gorgeous, but this is a deciding factor for me. My budget is not the biggest cool.gif.

 

I am extremely excited to say that my mother has offered to pay for my dress and is therefore coming to visit me for MDW. I live in Baltimore, and she lives in Florida, so this is going to be tough with having a time constraint for the dress try-ons. Needless to say I have booked several appointments to try some on starting with this coming Friday! Wish me luck!!

    • 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.
