Yay!!! Congrats on the dress!! It is definitely easier with just one!! I just let my MOH pick hers out herself - I just told her orange or turquoise!!
She did a great job - even bought one of each color so I could chose (since we don't live in the same area!). She said that she can wear both again!!
I love my MOH!!

Is anyone waiting until they get to their destination to purchase items for the welcome bags? I already feel like I'm spending a fortune on shipping (we can fortunately ship stuff to our caterer). We are getting there are day before everyone else, but have a lot to do in that one day. The main thing I was thinking of purchasing there is beach towels - shipping 25 of them will be pricey!!

I think it is a good idea, but maybe it would be easier and less stressful if you are flexible with what you find... Maybe go with a list of options. Just wouldn't want you to be disappointed if you had your heart set on something. But you might end up with some unique treasures!

We aren't shipping our stuff, but we also are only purchasing smaller items that we can fit in our suitcases. This also leaves us tons of room for buying souvenirs down there as we'll have extra room in the cases coming home.

My dress is really simple, so I want to have a say in what the her dress looks like. I don't want her to be fancier than me :) That being said, my sis is my MOH and she will let me pick anything for her to wear. She's not the picky one. My main issue is my Mom, she wants me to buy my sis essentially the same dress I bought (heck no) and then alter it to look different .... I would rather just go shopping to find something we all like.

Sounds like a good plan!
Did you know we are coming to Victoria/Whistler for our honeymoon in February? We are totally excited but haven't started to plan the details yet!

I didn't know you were coming to this area for your honeymoon. It's beautiful here! Let me know if you need any details about the area for planning, especially Victoria. I know only a little about Whistler, but one of my friends used to work up there, so I can probably get you some information. February is high season up there, so I recommend booking that stuff in advance, if possible. Also, if you tell your hotels that you are on your honeymoon, they will often provide you with cool amenities (treats) for your room when you arrive.

 

We're staying in Mexico for our honeymoon. Our plan is for the wedding/honeymoon to be a 2 week vacation :)

 

Cheers,

Jennifer

I've been window shopping on www.peridress.com and I'm going to try on a few more dresses this Saturday with my cousin.

It's so weird that I'm not stressing over not having a dress (yet)! And, right now I'm more focused on finding the perfect (silk) bouquet.

LOL

Where are my priorities?

LOL! That is funny.... but they are YOUR priorities! As long as you get what you want. What style are you thinking? Traditional? Simple? destination?
What are you thinking for a bouquet?
Inquiring minds want to know! Hope you have fun with your cousin!
I am having my bachelorette (I know, really early) Saturday! Very excited~

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
