New bride to be in 2014!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone at BDW!!

 

I love forums and I can see this one will be keeping me up til all hours. My fiance and I knew we wouldn't be having a traditional type of wedding and a destination wedding just seemed perfect, plus all our friends really wanted us to do it too! We are looking into Costa Rica, at the all inclusive RIU hotels and the Hilton. I do have a lot of questions and I hope I'll have them answered by looking through this forum. I'm super excited for all the DIY projects looking at the wonderful ideas on here!!

 

A quick question... for the brides who have walked down the aisle already, did you go see the resort/venue first before you signed a contract with them?? I'm really struggling with that, on the one hand I feel like I'll be ok not seeing it, but on the other hand I want to get a good feel for the resort, quality of food/service. I imagine my guests will be staying longer than just the weekend and I really want to make sure everyone has a good time,I'm estimating about 75 guests. I've already gotten quotes back for some locations but at earliest I won't be able to go for another month... please help!!

 

Many thanks! cat.gif

Just wanted to say :welcome: I'm not much help with your location or your question . . . Sorry I am getting married in St. Lucia at Sandals... I have never been to either... I'm fine with that.. I figured they have done a million weddings so I'll be ok. Have you been able to figure out if you will get to do a sight visit.. (I see this post was a few weeks ago) Anyways Hello :)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
