About Bridget810

  1. I love this thread! I'm sure there are going to be some great photos. Here is my contribution:
  2. I just wanted to share my experience--I flew Delta, and was told that if I brought my dress, it would count as my carry-on, so I couldn't bring another carry-on (other than a purse). I would definitely check with your carrier first, as you don't want to risk having to check something important! As for his suit, we put his in a checked suitcase, and bought a portable steamer for $30 from Bed, Bath, and Beyond--which worked wonderfully on my dress as well. My dress was hanged in the first class closet with no problem.

    Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred

    I know I'm starting to sound like an infomercial. but I'm going to continue anyway. I started this video in March, and kept it up until May (my wedding date was May 11th), and it worked like a charm. I've had at least 10 facebook friends ask me where I got my abs/toned arms/etc. after they looked at my wedding photos--and now they are hooked on Jillian. I'm 29, and I never thought my body could look better than it did at 21--but apparently, it can! Honestly, this was the best workout that I can think of, especially during "crunch time". However, I did use it 5 times a week--if you skip days, it's brutal to try to get back into the Jillian routine. My best suggestion is to power through it--it really does get easier!

    Legal Marriage Question

    I have the same question! Although I did not get married in Mexico (I got married in Grand Cayman), I tried to register it in our local courts, and nobody seems to know what I need to do to make sure the marriage is valid in the US. I've been researching this for days, and I've only found info on the legalities BEFORE you get married abroad--but what about afterward? Help please!

    Feeling bummed

    I understand completely! You are definitely not alone. *hug*
  6. I did a search and couldn't find the answer to my specific question. Delta allows 1 carry-on bag (not exceeding 40 lbs) and a purse. So, does that mean that if I bring my wedding dress with me on the plane, it counts as my carry-on and I cannot bring a small bag with me? Just wondering what other brides have experienced.

    I'm gonna try this.......what do you think?

    I eat healthy Monday through Friday, and "cheat" on Saturday & Sunday (but just for one meal--i.e., dinner). And I still continue to lose weight without losing my sanity! I love food too much to give up my favorite foods completely. I also exercise M-F, and rest on the weekend.

I moved up to Level 2 when I felt like Level 1 wasn't "pushing" me as much--so, about 3 weeks in (for me). Now I do Level 2 MWF and Level 1 T&TH. And, another update on the results--I've started dropping pounds, and, for the first time in my life, I actually have a 4 pack in my stomach! I'm so excited! I do an extra set of 40 bicycle crunches at the end of each workout, and wow! I should also mention that I run on the treadmill at least 3 times a week immediately after shredding for about 30 minutes; I hear that running after strength training makes you burn more calories.

I don't know how people could do it everyday for 30 days though. Also, what is a good weight for your arms? 3lbs? 5lbs? I use 3 pound weights for some exercises, 5 pound weights for others, and 8 pound weights for the butterflies. For me it just depends on which muscle I'm using and how strong or weak that particular muscle is!
  10. I also use the Jergen's Natural Glow--it is slow and subtle, but I like that about it--it's one thing if your face turns orange, it's quite another if it is your face! Anyways, it looks realistic and it smells like cake icing--yum! I'm really fair myself, and it works well on my skin tone.
  11. I bought a portable steamer from Bed, Bath, & Beyond for 30 bucks that I'm planning on bringing with me. It is about the size of a hair straightener, so it will fit easily into my suitcase. I haven't tried it out yet, but if I ever remember to try it, I'll let you know how it works!
  12. Poohshek--did you buy your petals from there, and if so, how did they turn out? The only problem with that site is that I would prefer a "tropical blend", as it would match my colors better; but, if the petals are of a good quality, I might go for a different color. Also, I just need them for my flower girls basket--I have two, and it would be uber-costly to buy petals down in Grand Cayman. Hence, freeze dried petals!!
  13. **BUMP!!!** I did a search to make sure that I wouldn't start a thread that already existed, but I do wish this was in a different forum, as I'm not getting married in Mexico. BUT, I am planning on buying freeze-dried petals, and I was hoping some of the other brides and brides-to-be here at BDW already bought some and could tell me how theirs turned out? Right now I'm looking at Beau-coup and Petal Garden.
