  1. I don't think I would necessarily be offended, but if you aren't inviting that many people and they know you know they have a serious SO, that might be a bit weird. If this happened to me I would think you might be intentionally not inviting my bf so I would probably ask you about it to see if he could still come with me.
  2. Agreed, I've seen nothing but nice comments and support on this forum! Even when you sign up to join The Knot forum they have all sorts of warnings about how you need to be ready to accept blunt "constructive" criticism, especially if you want to be part of the NYE community. They basically warn you that everyone is going to say hurtful things to you to make you be "honest" with yourself and that they're just trying to "help" you. It's kind of ridiculous.
  3. "You are far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way" I have no idea where it came from originally, but I saw it on Pinterest of course
  4. This is an awesome idea! I'm sure your future hubby will absolutely love it!
  5. I know this is seriously the most boring advice but ChocoTaco is right, it has to be a lifestyle change, not a diet. These don't have to be huge changes though, or at least you don't have to jump right into huge changes. Don't think you can't ever eat any more cheeseburgers and that you have to run 10 miles a day. A lot of times it's the little things that help the most. For example, a few years ago I made a conscious decision to eat my veggies before my meat and grains, so that I fill up on the lighter stuff first and get full before I finish the heavy things instead of the other way around. I also run 1.5 miles a day now, which is hardly anything at all but it's very manageable and once I get that out of the way, most of the time I do a strength training/toning work out too because I feel so pumped up! The point is, deciding to go on WW or the Atkis diet are usually not lifestyle changes. No one thinks they're going to Weight Watchers for the rest of their lives, because that would be awful and no one could stand that. You have a much higher chance at succeeding if you find what works best for you, as long as you make sure to actually push yourself! Good luck on your journey!
  6. Aw, I think all of these engagement stories are really cute because they reflect the personality of your fiances, which contributes the most to making them special!
  7. What a sweet story, thanks for sharing! Although it is a bit embarrassing to be sitting at my work computer all teary-eyed in the office lol.
  8. Yes, this is the best! My boyfriend and I started running in the morning about a month ago and although it was sort of dreadful waking up the first day it makes you feel pretty awesome all day and really boosts your confidence in your ability to stay on track. Unfortunately we're been totally slacking for 2 weeks because we've had company in town on and off but we're going tonight after I get home from work. I'm not personally a fan of the no or low carb thing because I like to focus on limiting my meat consumption, not eating any processed food, and eating lots and lots of fruits and veggies, particularly in my morning smoothie. But, best of luck to you all on your low carb journey!
  9. I agree with everyone else, proceed with your DW plans and if your FI and his brother are as close as it sounds he will come! I understand them not wanting to bring the baby not only because of the vaccination issue but just because going on vacation with an infant might be a little stressful. Also, if you still want vaccine info here's what the CDC says. That being said, I still think your future SIL is being a little selfish and spiteful and as others said earlier, you don't want to give up your dream wedding for her because you will likely end of resenting her for years to come and that could make family time rather unpleasant. Best of luck and keep us updated on your decision!
  10. Thanks guys! yeah, I was wondering if any of it would be very useful for destination weddings since they seem pretty regional in focus. But, I've heard there are great prizes and giveaways so I was also thinking of going just to see if I can get any awesome free stuff, haha!
  11. Hi, did any of you ladies go to any bridal shows or expos and did you find it helpful? I live in Miami and there are several coming up this summer. I just wanted to know if you got any great ideas from any shows/expos, or if you got any great swag or discounts to know if it's worth my time. Thanks!
  12. Congrats on your engagement and upcoming big day! As far as wording of the invites, you might want to say something like "To ensure the availability for all of the members of your party and the best rates we recommend booking as soon as reasonably possible. Please let us know if you have any concerns or are delayed in making your reservations." Concerning dealing with your wedding coordinator, my best advice is try to send pictures, that leaves the least amount of room for interpretation! Lastly, on the note of wedding favors. Try looking into usb wedding favors, you can load them with photos and if you have a photo booth for your guests they can save their photos directly to the drives instead of walking around with the strips! You can even get them in custom shapes like flip flops or other destination-related themes. Let me know if you have any questions!
  13. I think these are all good ideas. I think it might be better to do it directly, either in person (first choice) or in something casual like a FB private message, because it will seem more light-hearted than as an asterisk on their formal schedules. Also, I think it will probably help a lot that you'll be setting a good example. If you and your fiance aren't getting wasted I'm sure your BMs will follow suit!
