  1. HI girls, My fiance and I will be getting married in Lake Tahoe on June 25, 2010. We are going to get married at Emerald Bay State Park. I am so excited! How is everyone's planning going?
  2. Hi gals, My fiance finally has a job again (it really stinks living in Michigan since we have the highest unemployment rate in the country) so I officially have permission to start planning and spending money again! We were originally considering Jamaica, but are now thinking Costa Rica. I am looking at the Playa Grande area and want something small and relatively inexpensive. We are going more for the small and intimate setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, we still also want access to get away for day trips, etc. Have any of you been married in this area? What kind of prices did you pay for your rooms, wedding coordinator, etc. I have been talking to a lady named Severine from Costa Rica Exotic Weddings. Has anyone used this wedding planner? Also, she suggested a few smaller and less expensive hotels in that region including the Rip Jack Inn, Hotel Bula Bula and Tamarindo Village. Has anyone heard anything about these locations or seen them? Are they nice, should I look elsewhere (other hotels and locations)? Thanks!!
  3. I cant wait to see your pictures. THe review was great. We had originally planned on Jamaica, but since we are changing the date, we are also considering changing the destination.

I totally feel you! I am also a teacher and also taking a grad class. This is the first time I have been able to log on to BDW in weeks!!
  5. How is the sewing coming along? I saw something very similar to this at Ikea for about $8 a piece. They are adorable!
  6. At least they are unique, right? I don't think they are bad, just different!
  7. Ok, so I know there are a lot of budget threads out there, but I am more specifically interested in ROR budgets. What are your rooms, flights, ceremony and reception extras, excursions, etc. costing you? How long are you going for and how many guests are you having attend? A lot of people seem to choose ROR for the cost, but is it really a lot less expensive then the other AI resorts?
  8. That is so exciting! Yay for both of you!!! ")
  9. Congratulations! That is so exciting!!
  10. That is gorgeous! Congratulations!

You only need 197 more...I just bought one and used your code. Thanks a bunch, I am actually kind of excited for my upcoming monthly visitor just because I want to try this diva cup thing. Whoo hoo!

It's also a lot safer to not get those checks in the mail. *https://www.optoutprescreen.com/ you can opt out of being prescreened for credit cards. then you no longer get those preapproved cards in the mail. I did this about a year ago & have maybe received 2 since then. Mike needs to do it because he gets several a week *I always drink tap water. *we buy the powdered gatorade to mix ourselves to avoid the waste then I do a lot of the things people mentioned above. I eat meat, but at most once a week. I've never really liked it. *maintain proper tire pressure. I was just at a discount tire & they will check your tires for free in 3 minutes. it improves gas milage *i keep my driving minimal. I also have a honda civic that is 9 1/2 years old. It's better for the environment to keep a car longer than to get a new one often even if they are more fuel efficient. I know there is much more I can do. I need to get better about paper towels. I go through a lot of napkins. I've also been planning to call more people who send me junk mail & get it to stop. I throw away so much mail a week. Awesome website, thanks!!!
  13. So...can the Diva Cup be worn during running and working out? Will it slip out of place and cause a disaster, or does it actually stay put that well?
  14. Wear the pin! Wear it! lol I can just imagine going to work and having my students ask about the pin..."uh...well kids...its a pin...and uh...well...it supports women and women's rights...."
  15. If I change my last name I will sound like a certain porn star. I would be Gina Jasin, which sounds an awful lot like Jenna Jameson.

    Welcome! Your SIL is lucky to have someone like you to help her out with the planning so much!
  17. Welcome to the forum, Ashley!
  18. Congrats on your upcoming DW and welcome to the forum!
  19. OK...I have to admit that I don't think a post on this forum has made me do so much searching and research OUTSIDE of the forum. I would actually be interested in trying it, mostly because I think pads and tampons are GROSS and smelly, and because my periods are very irregular in terms of flow so I feel like I am constantly running to the bathroom to make sure everything down there is still ok (sorry, that was kind of gross, wasn't it). Is this a Canada thing? I have never seen them in Michigan...anywhere. I live really close to Canada (I can actually see Canada from across the river where I live) and could drive there in about 20 or so minutes. Where do you buy one of these things?

I bought black cord and will fill them with sand for the guests. That's a really cute idea, and it will be a lot easier for you to transport than a bigger bottle!
  21. Poor Apollo! I am a dog lover and I will keep him in my thoughts!
  22. Hey, I am still in the early stages of my planning, but we have tenatively chosen Riu Ocho Rios as our location (waiting for confirmation and a chance to talk to the travel agent). One of the reasons we have picked that location is because we are trying to make it as econimical for us as possible since we will be paying for the wedding AND we want to be able to buy a house soon. At the ROR you can choose the free wedding package if you book at least 5 rooms and included in that is a semi-private reception at one of the resort restaurants. From what I have read in reviews from other brides who have been there, they have loved it and felt as though they didn't even notice other people that were in other parts of the restaurant. So basically...I am not sure what your goal is, but ours was to make it beatiful and as inexpensive as possible, so that is what we are planning on doing.
  23. Welcome, Debra!! We are also going to Jamaica for our wedding, but not until November 2009. I am very excited to hear all about your planning and your trip!
