WOOHOO!!!! Just 4 short days and you'll be in paradise! I'm so excited for you.

 

And aren't all FI's the same? Darling creatures...but not so timely...

Well I am 4 days away from leaving for my wedding and honeymoon 2 week vacation! I can not wait to spend a week with friends and family to hang out and celebrate our big day and then have a second week in the Casitias with my new husband. 

 

Of course right now my FI is the king procurator especially when he is anxious or stressed... So everything on his to do list that I asked him to help with I am now doing! UGH! I knew that this was likely to happen so I should have been prepared. Either way it just means I will really be ready for the vacation! LOL!

    don't worry, they'll have champagne ready for you when you arrive at the resort.

    I might be drinking on the plane!!!

      Did anyone do the sand cermony? What did they vases look like that was provided by the hotel. How was it taking them back home, did the sand spill out?

        I am actually bringing my own set for the sand ceremony... I got the vases at the Dollar store and my future father-in-law made the shadow box we are pour it in. I read something it said to melt wax on top to keep it all in place. I have not figured out yet on how I am going to transport it home. LOL!

         

        Goldislochs47 what day are you getting to EDR?

          I'm sorting out the schedule for the wedding day and was wondering what time I should start getting ready, etc.  Would love to hear the schedule of events for everyone's wedding day.  Thanks!

            My WC recommended hitting the salon at 12:30 for hair and makeup, as each would take an hour. My ceremony is at 3:30. She didn't recommend starting too early, in case the heat ruins it.

                We are leaving on the 19th and then switching to the Casita side after the wedding on the 24th...will any of you ladies still be there then?  I'm at the "less than 2 week" marker and getting sooooo excited!  Any last minute tips for things I should be prepared for?

                  Goldislochs47 what day are you getting to EDR? 

                  I arrive on 14 February. My vow renewal is on 17 February. I don't think the ones they suppply have a lid for me to transport the vase back home. I guess we will just do it again when we get home.  I am also doing a hand ceremony, I saw it on this site and I thought it fit us perfectly.

                   

                   

                  HAND CEREMONY WORDING

                   

                   

                  These are the hands of your best friend that you are holding on this day of renewal, as you promise to continue to love and cherish each other today, tomorrow and forever. These are the hands that have and will continue to work alongside yours, as together you continue to build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love and cherish you throughout the years, and with the slightest touch, comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will wipe the tears of sorrow and joy from your eyes countless times in the years to come. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

                    We leave this Sunday!!! Feb 11th through the 17th we are on the Royale side, all our guest have to leave on the 17th (they didn't have to go home but they couldn't stay at El Royale!) and we move to the Casita side for the second week for our honeymoon. We head home on the 24th. 

                     

                     

                    Fingers crossed that our East coast family and friends continue to stay out of the line of the blizzard! Most of our wedding guest will get to EDR on Wed Feb 13 so we should be good. We have about 3 other couples joining us on Sunday when we head down and 2 more couples come in on Tuesday. Wednesday we have about 12 more couples coming! So Goldieloch47 you might see a crazy group on Thursday I apologies in advance!  

                     

                    The only tip I have is keep list... I have had my stuff I needed to take for the wedding in one pile on our guest room for months. But I think I have about 20 different list going right now with things to remember!
