Is it safe to bathe the baby in the water in the bathroom? How will they protect him from the sun? And the list goes on. I might even need to start a thread to see about other ppl's guests bringing babies to mexico. I feel bad, but I think in 3 months they will realize their son is a much heartier than he is now as a newborn!
I had friends that brought their 5 month old baby and they had NO issues. And he was pre-mature so he had health issues when he was born.. nothing major or anything, just the usual pre-mature stuff. She breast fed so I don't have answers on the bottle thing, but for the sun.... easy, cover him up and keep him out of the sun! Keep a hat on him. His bathing suit was this cute little scuba looking thing, so it covered most of his skin. They would have him in the stroller a lot too which protected him from the sun. They bathed him in the water in the room and its fine lol. I'm sure they'll feel way better about the situation when he's a bit bigger!! It's honestly not a huge deal :)

AmyB - haha wow same exact thing happened with FI's sister... she was all fine, like oh year we'll be there with a 6 month old, no prob! Now it's "wash your hands before you even THINK about touching her!" oh and you guessed it, they're not coming.

 

Sounds like your situation is better, they sound nervous but just want to get all the info first. Good luck!

Alright so it was a blast! I had so much fun and DEFINITELY expanded my boundaries quite a bit, when in Rome!

So I had my hair and makeup done professionally (my photog said to make sure it was done professionally, makes all the difference) so I followed his advice and I'm happy I did. I don't wear makeup every day but when I do I like to really wear it as you can tell in my picture below :) I gave my hairdress creative freedom and wanted a smokey bedroom look for my makeup and I hardly recognized myself... in a good way, it was so glamorous!

So I brought with me everything I owned that is sexy to have options & 6 pairs of shoes, this was probably the best choice as I really didn't know what I would want to wear once I was there. I brought my best friend and MOH with me which was probably my best decision I made, having someone there that knows me that can look out for me and help me decide on what to wear was SO helpful, I couldn't have done it without her and she drank with me too which was fun!

When we arrived at my photogs house he handed MOH and I patron shots and made me open up my suitcase and see everything I had to get an idea of what I was looking at doing and showed me many pictures of ideas he was thinking, totally on the same page so I trust him completely. I laid out all my outfit options, shoes and props so I could pick and choose.

I used the pearls a lot, they looked great and were fun to play with. I also used the feather (12' long black feather) I bought a lot, it was so fun and made me feel sexy for some reason. Also I used FI's black tie he used in our engagement shoot, pulling on it whatnot was great. I also used a pin up calender I bought and put a red heart around our wedding date and took pix with that. Having some sort of prop to focus on (unless your a pro model) helped me a lot because honestly it was kinda hard to figure out new sexy poses unless I was standing, lying down poses were harder to get creative with for me.

Having music really helped me relax, I would just hum and enjoy the music and my MOH would dance or smile, she made me laugh a lot which was good for some pix as well. Wine was flowing and we just had a good time, as nervous as I was, it left quickly as my photog is really professional and he was very helpful with ideas and moves. My MOH kept telling me to take it off (which I didn't intend on doing) but took some shots top off and took some tasteful shots with nothing on (!!!) never would have thought of doing this but I figured, hey why not, if they look terrible, no one needs to see them.

So my shoot was 4 hours long, I was totally exhausted by the end of it but it couldn't have gone any better! Chris is sending me pix soon and I told him specifically to send them soon so I could show you girls :)

Let me know if you have any questions!
ahhhh!!!!! I CANNOT wait to see!!! You are gonna look like a victoria's secret model FOR SURE!!! Can you come to my BD shoothuh.gif!!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
