I found out on my own when I checked tripadvisor and read someone's review of the hotel. Even the #%$@& wedding coordinator didn't notify me about it. Nor has she really answered any questions I have about it. My travel agent isn't much of a help either. I too had a suite, the jacuzzi one, for the entire trip. Now I am stuck in the old tower. My FI is trying to get us a free wedding package, the more expensive one of course and/or a free upgraded suite( they have 2 level suites in the old tower which come with jacuzzi and private pool). By the way, doesn't it make more sense to remodel an old tower....not the new one!!! Anyways I just wanted to let you know Tara you are not alone. Hope things work out for you!
Welcome!! That sucks about your resort. I feel so bad for you and Tara, not a fun thing to deal with especially when you are having your wedding there. You would think they would have notified you.

I was kind of bummed we couldn't go somewhere else, but we would end up spending way more money and losing too much travelling so it just made more sense to stay. I will definitely take lots of pics at the Grand for ya. I have heard it is a phenomenal place so I'm sure it will be a nice change from the Lindo.

Today I find out if I lost any weight or inches (wish me luck)...last wknd I had my first fitting, which was exciting but a bit frustrating as well since my dress didnt quite fit. She couldnt finish tying the corset at the bottom bc of all the junk in my trunk (LOL)...these hips DONT lie!! Well, here is a pic of me in my dress, unfortunately the lady already started to untie me bc she didnt hear me tell her I wanted to take a picture....I also included a pic of the MOH in the bridesmaid dresses. Enjoy.

MOH (the shoes she's wearing are actually my wedding shoes; the bridesmaids will be wearing brown sandals)

Congrats on the weight loss, that is great!! You look beautiful in your dress, and those shoes match the sparkly areas on your dress perfectly!

I also kicked some butt on my DIY projects last night. I made my welcome letter for the OOT bags, the wedding day timeline, and my table numbers and favor tags (organza bags of M&Ms)

Did you weigh your suitcases? All your DIY projects came out great, and I love the little stands you got.

I am absolutely exhausted! We had a garage sale at my aunt's house this weekend. We didn't advertise so all the people that came were just drive bys. Luckily, they live ona corner, but it was slower than we had hoped. Mike and I still made $525 from some of the stuff we sold. He used to be in a band so he sold some of his old instruments (he plays drums and guitar) so he had some bigger ticket items that resulted in the money we made, but I sold some clothes and kitchen stuff since we got new stuff at our shower. We are going to hold another sale in October and advertise this time so hopefully we can rid of the rest of our crap and make some more money. Otherwise, we'll just donate what's left so we won't have to move it to AZ!

I'm hoping to start working on those programs this week and get this stuff done. I go for another fitting on Saturday, and I need to pick up my head piece. I can't wait until I get to the point where I have nothing wedding related to do!

Wow, $525 is pretty darn good for not being advertised!! Ive been wanting to do a garage sale, we could sure use the extra cash. And I too cant wait til I have nothing wedding related to do!! I am so far behind, I cant believe it. sad.gif

I now have the bath bombs all packaged up, but now I would like to find a cute saying about bathbombs so everyone knows what they are & how to use them. After all, they aren't the typical round ball type bath bombs.

$525 that's awesome! We need to get together when you move to AZ!!!

 

I actually did weigh my OOT suitcase. It's a medium sized suitecase stuffed to the gills and it weighs 45 lbs.

 

Still haven't figured out how to get my starfish to PV....

Hey Tara,

Yes I have been told the noise from construction shouldn't be an issue and the wedding ceremony itself is on the other side of the resort. It just sucks that after anticipating staying in a suite with a jacuzzi I may likely be now stuck with a room outdated and from the 1970's.

 

By the way ladies just something to consider for those of you thinking about acrylic nails on your wedding day. My sister got them done and on her honeymoon she was doing one of those banana boat rides in the ocean and because she had to hold on with all her might she ripped them off. If you plan on doing a lot of activities like hiking, parasailing, or canopy tours and etc you might want to reconsider. My nails look like crap and never grow long so I just plan to get a nice simple manicure with light polish for some shine.

Just to let you all know, I won't be on tomorrow since I am heading to the city with my Mom. My Aunt is in the hospital there and is getting some tests done to see how the chemo treatments are doing. Since Mom and I are nurses, the family would like us to be there to find out what is happening and then relay it in understandable language for them. Keep you fingers crossed for her and good news please.

 

Oh yeah, how could I forget. Not only does my Aunt have leukemia, but her youngest daughter just found out she has a blood clot in her leg from her groin down passed her knee. The Dr said that it is the biggest blood clot that he had ever seen!!! The first hospital she went to told her it wasn't a bloot clot and sent her home after an ultra sound. The second hospital found it. Like WTF!!!

I hear ya. I really wanted that suite. Oh well. I was more mad that we told people to go to this resort only to find out construction was being done on half of it. So I hope that the construction is totally out of sight, and that you can't see any of it from your wedding!

This is what I decided on too. Even when I can semi grown my own nails out I will break one way down and have to cut the rest off! I'll probably go get the tips on a week before the wedding so I have a little time to get used to them.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
