Hmmmm I'm not sure what they have available for receptions. Beer just seemed to be "beer" there lol. So the answer of xxx lager makes sense. No selection, it's all cervesa lol.

 

Renee - OMG I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Thats truly horrible. That's super sweet of you to take care of her wedding cancellations. I think being a good friend is all you can do right now.

- Room key card holder and printed paper to put in holder
- ordered welcome bags (orange and pink giraffe print - even FI liked them!)
- ordered travel mugs and shot glasses
- ordered replica designer sunglasses

My new work permit (its like a visa I need to work and live in Bermuda) has not been approved yet either so I am staying another week in Maryland not working - so I am going to try and continue my streak here getting stuff done!

Amy Bermuda to do's:
- investigate & order waterproof stickers for mugs & shot glasses
- send out room block info for AHR
- contact TA and find out capacity at hotel & email Mexico invitees who have not yet booked
- send out email to guests to book flights as wedding is over memorial day
- find & buy cocktail umbrellas for seating chart
- get idea of #s for excursions and make preliminary bookings
- make FI actually get on the catamaran "rehearsal dinner" booking as he has promised to deal with for the past month! pokestick.gif

Alright..... I think that's about it for me!

Hope you girls are recovering well from NYE madness. This is my last weekend of being bad - tomorrow starts my diet up again and some serious exercising. I lost 10 pounds before Xmas but think I have put 3 back on. I need to lose at least 15, but would like to lose 20 to be ideal, before the wedding. I cant think of a better motivation than my own wedding though wink.gif
WOW!!! So proud of you!!!!! 3 lbs during the holidays is not bad at all either! You can do it!! Happy New Year!

All I'm doing right now is prepping for my BD shoot. I did a Liver Cleanse yesterday for 24 hours and I'm down 8lbs in 7 days so you can tell how serious I am! The shoot is one week from tomorrow so I'm in serious prep mode!
Holy cow!!! You are going to look amazing!!! How was the liver cleanse? Was it miserable or not too bad??

The cleanse was easier than I expected to be honest, it was only rough at the tail end and I got really nauseous. Other than that it worked and I feel fine. I think by Friday I should feel ready, I'm going to be working out and eating really well and hopefully the working out will tighten me up a bit more.

Haha, well the holidays for me were nothing and I didn't even go out on NYE which sucks, I scarified it all by cutting back dramatically on alcohol and eating well through the holidays.

I hope so, we'll see! It was miserable at the end of it. I was supposed to drink epsom salt and water 4 times and wasn't able to the last time, felt too sick I knew it would have just come back up so I skipped it. The cleanse's purpose is to remove liver and kidney stones so it's not really a weight loss thing but did that as well somehow. I had to drink a cup of olive oil mixed with a cup of grapefruit juice which is more calories than I consume in a day!

wow!

I am insanely jealous but also really happy for you - just be careful not to overdo it...you are already a perfect shape :) I'd pay to have a body like yours was before you lost the 8lbs!!

I lost 6lbs - but that was in 2 months!! 1st nov was my 1st weigh in (I'm using one of those machines in Boots that does it all electronically and prints it out - that way I can't cheat!!) and I did my recent one on 31 dec. next weigh in will be end of Jan so we'll see whats changed then (I know weight takes 3 weeks to put on after you've stuffed your face so i've got to make sure I don't put on what I should have over xmas!!)

new fitness regime starting this week :)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
