Hey! I'm in the same boat, I am starting to have some anxiety about getting the clothes before they aren't in stores any more. Plus I practically have to drag my FI shopping with me b/c he could care less what he wears...When people ask him what he will be wearing for the wedding, he looks at me and says to them, " I don't know, Lindsay hasn't told me yet." He honestly would rather I laid out his clothes on a daily basis...Can't help but love him because he's happy with whatever I choose, but he can be a bit frustrating with his laid back attitude at times.

I am in the same boat with the Groom and GM's clothes... not for a lack of trying, more... not getting anywhere fast! And the sale thing is good... but I have a bunch of hockey players too! Go figure, no sizes available!

LINDSAY! your bouquet is amazing!!!!!

 

Ladies, I am in the same boat with my FI, and groomsman (2 of them), I told them - 'by the end of September, YOU NEED TO GET YOUR OUTFITS FOR THE WEDDING' - I don't think I could have been anymore clear!

 

We have the guayaberas for the guys (spanish/cuban tuxedo shirts), and I have an online supplier lined up for more, for my dad, and FFIL. Beach Wedding Shirts | Guayaberas, Linen Pants, Boys Linen Shirts, Mexican Wedding Shirts. We will be ordering shirts for them to wear at the wedding, and I am thinking of extending the option for guayaberas to all other male guests attending the wedding.

 

Speaking of wedding attendance 80 - eighty - EIGHTY! people are booked thus far. This is wild.

 

I have been in contact with a couple of vendors for flowers, and will be choosing one really soon - I hope. I was thinking of doing a DIY, but for the sake of my sanity have chosen against that.

 

I am STOKED - THIS WEEKEND I am picking up my dress!!!!! Yay! I hope it goes well.

 

Other than that, I better get cracking on the guest gifts etc.... at this point we have definately decided against OOT bags - the estimated cost for each was about $40.00 per couple and one each for single guests, and we were doing one per child ($30 x 13 kids) - it is just too expensive.

 

We have decided to do the following...

1. Custom Luggage Tags (these are awesome!) Pics to come!

2. Custom Travel Mugs

3. Custom Wedding Tees

 

and when we get there, we'll be doing a mixer of some sort - possibly an evening on a catamaran... FI is budget stressed....

 

eeik!

Amarillis, Have you decided where you are getting your travel mugs done? I've been looking around but everywhere is pretty pricey. I'm trying to find somewhere Canadian too, to cut down on shipping costs.

 

Let me know if you've got a good lead!

We ended up choosing this location based on our visit to Varadero in 2008 - We went in February to find a great resort to be married at.

 

Our first choice was Melia Las Antillas - which, only a day or two before making a monster deposit, decided that they were not open to children in 2009.

 

My future in laws, and future sibling in laws, PROMISED their children that they could go to their Uncle's wedding.

 

Thus, we went back to our notes from our research trip.

 

We chose the Barcelo Marina Palace for many reasons, some of which can be found in my site visit review of the resort

But the main reasons, were that we liked the quality of the food, we know that our family and friends will be able to find foods that they will like (Cuba is not known for their food), there are fantastic activities for children and big play areas by the pool for them as well.

 

The rooms at the resort are really nice, and new and bright. FI and I fell in love with the monster suites that they offer - They are huge and will be fantastic for getting ready in (my parents also are staying in a MONSTER SUITE - for me to prep for the wedding in).

 

All in all the resort is gorgeous, there are two pics below.....

So I knew one of my bridesmaids was going to be 6months pregnant at our wedding. I just found out she is pregnant with identical twins!!!! How crazy! I'm so excited for her but bummed she won't be able to come to the wedding now. She said she was going to plan on coming but I work with pregnant women and there is no way her docs are going to let her go to Mexico when she is 6months pregnant! How crazy, I still can't wrap my mind around her having twins! She already has two kids and she is 27. I just can't believe it!

Wow, what a fun suprise for her! I'm sorry she won't be able to make it to your wedding sad.gif Sometimes it seems like the people you were sure would come, have something come up, and the ones you least expect are the first to book! (That's how it's been with me anyway) Are you going to "replace her" or just have one more GM?
