Help newbie's get 150 posts

Recommended Posts

Woohooo you made it! LOL open away! I heard Excellence is amazing. You won't regret that either. My aunt goes every year. I really want to try it. We fancy adult only resorts but couldn't exclude my niece, nephew, and god sister from our ceremony. 2 story suite? OMG I didn't even know. No problem. I love to chit chat hahaha. My husband is like "babe...we're already married get off the boards." I'm like "but it's my hobby. You have yours. I have mine." LOL plus I have major wedding withdrawal so talking to brides to be is like crack for me haha I sound like I have no life.
awwww !!! Yea everyone says after the wedding , you get withdrawals!

Keep a posting... the templates are going to be worth it :woot:

 

I played some of the games and that helped get my posts up too.  Just search the forum for "games" and play together.

It seems to me with the little research and threads that I have read it would be ALOT cheaper. I would worry what day we should celebrate our actual anniversay on? If we decide to do it this way (which I'm leaning torwards the more I read) I would do the legal part HUSH HUSH, where only the FI and I were there. No one needs to know the ceremony on the beach is "pretend"! :mswink: What is everyone elses thoughts?

I stupidly told my future in-laws that we were thinking of legally getting married in CA and symbolic in Cabo. I didn't hear the end of it from FI's sister. I really don't understand what the big deal is. She said something obnoxious along the lines of "I have to see my brother say I do legally". So guess what, now we're forced to lie and say the symbolic ceremony is the legal one. So there.

 

There is a whole thread on this- families fighting, parents crying- it's insane. I think i read somewhere also that hotels will help you pretend it's a legal ceremony- down to the bandaids to put on your arm!

What?!  Down to the bandaids on your arm?  That's amazing!!!  We're going to do the legal wedding in Mexico (although I don't like the idea of the blood test or another country having my blood by any means cuz I watch too much CSI and Criminal Minds). 

 

I know how you feel about families making a stink though.  My MIL keeps trying to pressure/guilt FI into having a big Hindu ceremony when we come back because a lot of his family doesn't want to come out to Mexico.  We declined because it's not our belief and it would have very little meaning for us.

 

Couldn't your sister-in-law just come to the paper signing in CA if that's what you guys wanted?  What's the biggie, it's really your decision as a couple.

 

Just my two cents (which in Canada is rounded down to nothing now since our pennies are almost worthless).

I am going to have to check that thread out! I'm currently having ALL kinds of issues with the MIL and SIL. They are trying their hardest to change my mind on having a destination wedding I think. I'm over it already She is very, very pushy and manipulative. I'm standing my ground. Now they are saying they aren't even coming to the wedding, which I think is horrible they wouldn't be there for him...but at the same time I'm getting ready to say SO BE IT!!! We are also thinking of doing the legal part here to save some money and not have to worry about any issues with paperwork and all that jazz. I'm not EVEN going to mention that part to them!! That will just be ONE more thing they will cause drama about!

    • 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?
