thanks melanie! jose was eating lamb chops with his pinkies up and if you look really close, you can see he has sauce on his face too LOL.

his sister is the one in the black tube top and black & white skirt. she hasnt mentioned the bridesmaid dress to me again since that day - i think she caught on that i was going to strangle her if i had to continue hearing about it.

Thanks,

legal day is when you get married legally before your DW, a lot of people do it. it makes things easier to have all your documents in english for insurance and other purposes like for changing your name and getting a new social security card etc etc etc. in mexico you are required to get a blood test prior to your wedding also, which a lot of americans (& canadians) dont like to do so they avoid that by getting legally married here in the US (or canada) first and then their DW is just a symbolic or religious ceremony

    Excuse me one moment....

    AAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggg gggggggggghhhhhhhh!

    Um. Hang on.....



    That's a little better.

    So... last week I called my TA to make final payment and she says she's sending a new spreadsheet. Totally wrong. Wrong room types. Wrong travel dates. Wrong names. Wrong just about every f-ing thing!!!!

    So we worked on it. In the last two weeks I have gotten (no joke) 11different iterations of this stupid spreadsheet - three of them in the last 24 hours. And... somewhere in there she changes the rates on MY room. They went up almost 200 per night!! She says that she'd booked the wrong room type and they got it sorted and the rate now reflects the right room type. I chewed her up one side and down the other. I actually called her irresponsible, incompetent and deceitful. Not all in the same sentence, mind you, but nevertheless. She blames the whole thing on a communication problem between the wholesaler and the hotel. And when I told her that a good travel agent would have stepped in and sorted all of this out on their own without me having to deal with it all she says... well, the wholesaler... or well, the hotel.

    But it's all sorted now. And two weeks later we've made final payment. And I'm only going to walk out of my office and kill 3 people instead of the original 17 I'd planned on.

    I'm feeling much better, thanks!

    In other news...

    I picked up my wedding dress yesterday. I took it home on the train with me. Fun story. When I got on the train, I hung it up and the woman sitting behind asked if it was my wedding dress and we chatted for a minute. A few minutes later a man walked by and asked if he could have the seat. Before I could even respond the woman behind me says "are you f*ing blind? Can't you see that's her wedding dress? find another seat!" Hysterical!!!

    oooh and we pick up our wedding bands tonight.

    Ahhh... checklist is getting shorter.

      Becks glad you straightened your TA out. That is really irresponsible of her, good for you letting her know.


      and how awesome was the lady that sat near you on the train, that was too funny!!!

      lets see the bands...

      I love the lady on the train. I should invite her to the wedding. I bet she can keep FMIL away from me on the wedding day!

      No one would ever find my TA, so no point in a nasty review. And while I'm sure that she thought she had everything under control. And when she FINALLY decided to double check things she realized that there were problems. But I shouldn't have to wait 4 months for her to check things! Bleh!

      happy thoughts.... happy thoughts....

      No pics of the rings yet - they were both custom-made and I haven't seen them yet. Not that FI's is very interesting, it's just a band. He'll never wear it (hates rings) but I wanted him to have one anyway. I can't wait to see mine!!!

      i designed my ceremony programs last night - have to make 2 small changes tonight at home and then will post a photo of what they look like when i can.

      we are having the HARDEST time finding any info on what should be said during the draping of the lazo toward the end of the ceremony.... i am getting so annoyed, i have to go walk to the catholic bookstore down the street in a bit to see if they have something that will help me

      I'd give you some advice on the draping of the lazo... but I don't even know what that is!

      oh btw becks, thanks for the PM about the welcome booklets... at this point im not sure im going to have enough time to still do them unless i get them finished in the next 5 days, so dont worry about it but thank you nonetheless!

      i originally started them as full page newsletter style documents... i may just do that and bring a clear plastic report cover to put them in or something.... i still dont know what im going to do. i really dont want to spend another dime honestly, so we will see what happens.

      If you make it in a tri-fold style, you won't need a cover and it will look okay. that's what we did with our pre-travel book. I think it turned out pretty well.
