Wow - this looks great! Please keep us posted as I have been trying to find somewhere with reasonably priced tulle! I'm hoping it will end up being a bit cheaper than paying for it down there... however, my WC says she cannot tell me what they will charge for a setup fee as that is determined once I get there... I was hoping I could know before hand so that I could decide if I wanted to bring my own stuff or not! LOL!

Tisha wow these pictures are amazing! I absolutely love them, I'm so happy you wore your actual dress. It looks so great, I was debating between wearing mine and buying a cheaper dress to trash haha. But you totally just confirmed that I will definitely be wearing mine. Just curious, how was the dress after the shoot? Was it completely ruined?

Thanks for the compliments girls!! Justine, it wasn't in bad shape at all after the shoot.  It looked worse after the actual wedding, from getting stepped on and all.

Finally all my girls ordered their dresses! Choose the "rose petal" pink color from David's Bridal, I think its such a beautiful pink! But scary part is that the dresses are coming in 5 days before we leave for Mexico, so not much time for the girls to get fitted. Luckily my mom is a great seamstress, so if anything really needs fixing she can help out in Mexico.... not too worried.

Feeling pretty good about stuff that I have accomplished so far:

 

1.) Bridesmaid dresses

2.) Ordered cake topper - swaroski crystal pink "K"

3.) Ordered garter with blue crystals for the "something blue"

4.) Ordered a "Bride" hanger to hang my dress from

5.) Destination photographer is booked + TTD

6.) Music list is pretty much done

7.) Seating chart is in the works

8.) Gong to JCrew to figure out FI suit for the wedding

9.) Flowers & Centerpiece's are picked

10.) Working on ceremony wording - if anyone has a sample of what they used at their wedding I would GREATLY appreciate it

11.) Bridal shoes are ordered

Things I still need to do:

2.) Figure out if I'm wearing a viel

3.) Groomsmen attire

4.) OOT bags - still debating on this

5.) Welcome letter

6.) Favors

7.) BM/GM gifts

8.) Decide on hair for the day of

 

 

Is there anything I'm missing?! It's early and my brain can't think of anything else right now...

I just added the sheers to my detail sheet, and sent in my final payment.  I decided I wasn't going to worry about bringing anything else down there with me.  Here's hoping I didn't miss anything, or want to change things now!  :)

Congrats!!! Don't worry, I can speak from experience. You will have a great time and even the little things won't bother you. I think your wedding day is one of those times you can't put into words, you prepare and think you know exactly how its suppose to go and then you get caught up in one of the best moments in your life and everything just melts away. I can truely say that day was the BEST in my life to date and I can totally see it in the pictures!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
