Hi Ladies,

 

I just wanted to check in quickly since I probably won't be around much this weekend. I ordered my parasols, and my raffia fans should be arriving any day. I got the confirmation that they were shipped. I am going for my second dress fitting tomorrow and hope to get some pics to post. I also found some OFF towlettes at Target on clearance to go in the OOT bags.

 

We went and exchanged our duplicate shower gifts. We closed out our Pottery Barn registry and got a 10% completion discount. We got our bedding, the rest of our serving platters, dessert plates and all our wine glasses. We couldn't close out our Crate and Barrel registry yet since we have to wait until after the wedding, but I did get some green tealight candle holders to use at the wedding. I have three that I found the other day, and I thought those would look nice on the tables with some pink rose petals so luckily C&B still had them. They also had them in purple, teal blue, yellow and red for .95/ea if anyone is interested. I already have clear tealight holders and clear starfish tealight holders to use, but didn't have anything with color. I looked online for pink table runners, but couldn't find anything. I think the green candle holders and petals should be just enough color for our centerpieces.

Well, girls after wondering about my dress being in I decided to call the next day and lo and behold. It was in!! I got a postcard in the mail that very afternoon when I got home..so now I made an appt in a couple weeks for my first fitting!! Hoping it fits. Next weekend is my bachelorette weekend in Traverse City so I knew I couldn't go then.

So excited for my bachelorette party weekend we have rented a house on the lake and about 11-13 are coming and staying in the house together. (It sleeps up to 16) So it's going to be a weekend of casinos, shopping, wineries, campfires and of course barhopping. It's going to be a blast. I have friday off so 4 of us are driving up in the morning. Usually the bachelorettes I've been to with my friends have been Chicago or Vegas so everyone is kind of glad for a change where we can all stay together and hang out. They are also throwing me a shower Sat. morning with the theme "Wine me, dine me, 69 me!" so it will be interesting the kinds of gifts I get. lol

Oh it has been raining here like crazy in MI this whole weekend..FI and I went out yesterday and picked out his wedding band and I ordered it. So, pretty happy we got another thing done. Today we will work on our meet the guests page on our website.

That is great that your dress is in, and your bachelorette party sounds like it will be a lot of fun!

It's good to see you back on here, we've missed ya! Hope everything is going well.

Well, as promised I have a few pics from my dress fitting. She needs to take it in some more on the sides and straps and she has the bottom pinned up so it's not finished yet. My sister got measured for her dress, and my little brother tagged along so they wanted to take a picture with me. My little sis was so cute, she helped fluff out my train for the pictures. She just might come in handy on the wedding day! She just turned 6 today. The weather has been so crazy here. The basement of our building flooded, and there are so many streets closed due to flooding. It took me forever to get home from sister's b-day party.

Your dress looks sooo great Michelle. That is so sweet about your little sis helping with the train!

 

Your bachelorette weekend sounds like so much fun Amy! Enjoy it!

 

Well, I just got home from my weekend in the city and my bridal shower today. It was so great and I had so much fun!!! I will get the pics off my Mom's camera tomorrow (Mon) when I go over there, since it was getting late when we got back to town. She just got back from her cruise yesterday, and has gifts for us, but didn't want to hand then out at the shower. Coming home I actually had to leave the crook pit behind because there was literally NO room left in the van, unless I leftmy Mom, sister, Hailey or Justin behind!!!!

Well one of the plans is getting our makeup done so that wouldn't involve dressing up. But this sunday she invited fi and i to brunch with her parents at a Country Club that would be dressing up. I told her i would ask fi if he wants to go to brunch. Now normally my fi would probably say he didn't feel like it because he's not one to dress up so if he says Yes than it could be my shower. But i think brunch would be too early she didn't give me a time.

 

See this is driving me crazy, i am looking into everything way too much.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
