Recommended Posts

@@rachelia160 that's a great list girl! i need to get moving on some of these things youve already finished lol

 

you could also add buying bridesmaid gifts, figuring out your jewelry and undergarments

I think you all are on track. I found nothing of mine really started coming together until near the end when I had to make sure it was all taken care of - then things didn't go or seemed incomplete or or or .... and then I started finalizing it all. Also remember the decor doesn't make the wedding!! Remember the beauty of where you are and realistically that you also have to get it there :) trust me I'm packing right now and it's not easy. Less is better, trust me :) it will come together from a piece here and a piece there to a finished product.

6 months out? Relax for a minute before things start getting crazy =)

 

you seem to have everything together already! at 6 months I was making spreadsheets and lists upon lists... which led to more lists... and more to-dos, lol.... You look to be right on track, it all comes together nicely as the date gets closer, trust us =)

I'm 6 months out too and you make me feel like I have nothing done! Our deadline for booking is April 1st so I know alot will be last minute. I'm waiting on the stamps for invites to come in so they can go out and going to buy material for the BM dresses tomorrow (someone is making them). We have about 25 people that have booked their flights already. As far as decorations go, it's already beautiful enough, less is more!

 I am the QUEEN of the spreadsheet! I needs lists to keep track of my lists!  That's probably the main thing I'm accomplishing at this point.

Custom BM dresses--that's amazing!  And I love when people tell me that "Less is more" with decorations....I have a hard time letting go of those Pinterest-perfect weddings you see pictures of all the time, but I need to tell myself that those people spend a TON of money on weddings like that and it's just not realistic.

You seem so organized, it's hard to picture you doing anything last minute!! I just read on your thread that you leave tomorrow--I don't know you and I'm super excited for you!  I can't WAIT to hear how your wedding goes and all the advice I'm sure you'll have to offer all of your loyal followers :) haha!

Don't sweat the small details. In the whole grand scheme of things they don't matter. I wish I had never stressed about frames, vases and signs for the bar, etc. No one (including myself) noticed they were there. The beauty of your location is all you need :)

Oh really? That makes me feel better because I really don't have anything like that planned and I was starting to wonder if I should. But if you and your guest didn't notice them then my guest won't either :)

    • 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?
