7 Months To Plan - Are We Mad?

Recommended Posts

With a destination wedding its totally do-able! Most resorts have "packages" that are already put together for you =0) Good luck!

We are doing it in 9 months for 40+.  And I feel it's too much time, I hate waiting!! lol!!  The only nice thing about more time is that your guests can work out details, save money, etc.  And that you get better options of wedding dates at your resort, etc.

We aren't having guests and I guess a lot of my panicking was me trying to reconcile what I have had in my head for years about weddings (the long timeline, the stress, the huge expense) and what we are doing. We waited almost a month to actually book the trip and now we've booked our holiday, our photographer and officiant and I've been wedding dress shopping. We decided not to go through a wedding planner because we want to keep everything super simple. So far the biggest stress has been wedding dress shopping yesterday - I found two perfect dresses, both over budget and now I have to decide whether to go for the most amazing vintage dress ever or get the one I was originally thinking of (and still love, the other perfect dress was very similar to it) made in China for around a third of the price. 

 

Once I narrow down and book my hair and makeup and decide where we are going to go for dinner the night of, we are pretty much done with the Mexico details. I almost can't believe how stress-free it's all been!

OMG similar thing we went through. We went on vacation in October 2013 and I said we need to just do it (get married). We've been engaged since 06/10 and it's just about time. We had 12 mos but nothing we couldn't do in 7mos. Just write down everything you would like and realistically match that to your budget. It'll be awesome and DWs are suppose to be easier.

    • 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.
