As of now, I don't have plans for a bachelorette, but we may do something in Jamaica. Wow, you have to work until your trip?! Bummer! I know you will get everything together though. I've been joking that I will arrive in Jamaica all tight and tense from all the work and no sleep--but once I get there, it will all be irie!

 

 

I'll probably cave and take off Friday. We're officially leaving on Sunday for Jamaica, but are leaving Saturday afternoon/evening for the airport where we'll stay overnight. I'd like to take a half day on Friday, but my work only allows us salaried folks to take whole days of vacation - crazy. I'm sure that all of next week will be a wash for me at work!

 

As a sidenote, I'm picking up my dress tomorrow night from David's Bridal. It had to be taken in - another sign that the stress of work and wedding has me wasting away! I'll post pics when I get back tomorrow night!

Congrats on your upcoming travels to Jamaica.... stay safe and enjoy yourself.... What Davids Bridal did you go too... I went to the one if Buffalo and had i hated ever mintue of it... but in the end i bought my Taira and the BM dresses, picking those up in June...

Asteff, I bought my dress at DB, too! I had a pretty positive experience there. I ordered it April 26 and it came on Monday! They had told me July so I was somewhat nervous, but it came in way ahead of time. What dress did you get?

Asteff and iriebride-

I just got off the phone with Darma. It was great. I was very surprised when she answered the phone when I called. I was actually returning her call from her returning mine..lo We were playing phone tag. I got the last little details set up and taken care of and I also found out she is going to be at SGOR the 15th-19th so she said she was gonna come look me up in the salon when I am having my hair done..lol Not that I really believe she will cause I know she is a busy lady, but hey it is the thought that counts right?? Anyways, keep an eye out for her she is 4'11 with dark hair and eyes...lol I can't wait to meet up with you ladies either!

When are you leaving? I can't believe how close we all are! It feels like just yesterday I started my 3 month coundown and really started buckling down on wedding plans! My problem right now is that I can't seem to stop buying clothes for the trip. That's ironic considering it's my honeymoon AND it's Jamaica, so clothes aren't really that important!

Speaking of clothes - what are you ladies taking to wear to dinner? We're there a total of 5 evenings (6 if you count the wedding, but I think we get dinner in our room that night), and I have 4 dresses. It's my understanding that not all of the restaurants for dinner require fancy attire and that a cute top and skirt, shorts, capris would work for most of them. Is that similar to what you ladies have read/heard?

Your dress is beautiful! You're going to make a really pretty bride :)

 

As for dinner clothes, I have an obsession with sundresses, so I plan on taking some cute simple dresses that I can just throw on with a pair of sandals.

Your dress is beautiful! You are gonna look so awsome in it. Are you having your hair and make-up done? I would like to post a pic of my dress by my camera was broken. I actualy just got a new one yesterday. I just need someone to take my picture in it!
We leave Thursday morning but are leaving home Wendsday night and staying in a Hotel by the airport. We didn't want to take any chances and the hotel will store our van for the week. Plus we live 2 hours from the airport and have to be at the airport by 3:45 am. When are you leaving?


I have been totally stressing about the dress code and what to take. I kinda have a mix of dressy and casual. I bought 2 dresses but honestly, I don't look great in dresses. I did get a few very nice shirts that I love though that I also am worried about my FI. He doesn't want to take any dress pants and honestly he doesn't own any. He just want to wear kakhi shorts and nice shirts. He also doesn't want to take his heavy dress shoes either. He does have sandles that are dressier though. I just not sure they are good enough for all the resturants, especially the Italian one. So what do you all think? Do you think we should get him dress pants and take his heavy shoes? The sandals he does have do not have his toes exposed.

Thank you! Sorry the pics are so huge. I'm doing good just to get them posted correctly! I can't wait to you all in your dresses!

You're so close! We're leaving on Saturday afternoon/evening for the airport, and our plane leaves at 8:35 on Sunday morning smile123.gif

Our hotel is letting us park there for the week too. Sure beats finding long-term parking at the airport!

I have a mix of dressy and casual too - 4 dresses total, 2 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of denim capris, 1 short denim skirt, and 8-9 tops. I was on sandals.com last night after I posted, and I was relieved to see that only 2 of the restaurants are elegant vs. casual. That put my mind at ease. FI is only taking 1 pair of dressy pants, but he'll also have pants from his wedding suit and shoes as well. What is your FI wearing? Would the pants from his wedding attire be suitable for dinner at a fancier place if necessary? Honestly, I think you can get by with just one fancier outfit. After all, it'll probably only be worn for 2-3 hours at the most.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
