I'm sorry. We have had some issues with my inaccessible family not coming and not getting tier acts together with getting passports. At the end of the day we all have to remember that has Long as the two of you are there...no

One else matters.

Two random questions that I have been meaning to ask...how many songs have everyone picked out for the ceremony and secondly who, if ou don't mind me asking, are you tipping?

I picked based on what the resort told me too - bridal party, bride, signing and exit.

 

Tipping - regulars for the AI part then WC, photographer and wait staff/bartenders (plan to give lump sum and they can divy up). Fiancé doesn't agree with photographer and possibly WC but I win :)

In the end the passport was only a small part of the problem. His work revoked his holidays - long story. Too many people booked on holidays so he's not coming :( yesterday was the cut off for name changes and he only found out at 10pm last night. I told him to quit and find a new job but he won't lol. Apparently they said they'd reimburse his trip but I'm always skeptical.

oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that :(. Did they just revoke the holidays? That seems super unfair, if you booked the week off months ago, chances are that you already paid for a trip somewhere. I'd be super angry if I was him, enough to quit my job  :angry:

omg No way! Wow. So is your sister still going alone even if he can't? You're fine on numbers though right? Does it really mess anything up for you?  I've had that happen and I was reimbursed but I was totally PO'd believe me. So was Doug. Vacations are too important to be forced to miss them.

 

So are you over the moon excited yet????? What time do you leave??

Hey!

Yes my sister is still coming. They had planned to drive here so she scrambled today to find a connector flight.  She is very upset and rightfully so. I think she is also worried about being a 3rd wheel and how it will impact her trip, but she has all of us so it will all work out ok.   It is such a total piss off, but apparently it happens as you know. It's almost amazing people would do that to someone!  For me, it doesn't affect us whatsoever, he is out the money though as he was 100% paid in full.   I should let my WC know about the change in persons as I would get a reduction in cost as he doesn't need a plate/open bar.

 

We leave on Saturday AM at 8am!!!   I am really starting to get excited now because all my friends and family (over 30 on our flight) all arrive tomorrow!!!!! yay!!!

 

Thanks for thinking of me :)

But what about her room? If it's based on double occupancy, will they let her stay alone in the room without paying the extra? I'm sure everything is going to be fabulous and I can't WAIT to see your pics and hear all about it!!!! I'm up to my neck in year end right now so this week has been total crap but in case I get too busy tomorrow, have a wonderful time. With all of your planning and the beautiful things you've put together, it will be gorgeous!

Her boyfriend was paid in full so to them it's still a double occupancy room. If it was at deposit time yes she would have paid more. It's basically like he's there but he's not. That's what travel agent said anyways as the hotel and airline don't lose any money.

 

Thanks so much. I can't wait to tell everyone about it. :)

    • 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?
