Hello Ladies

 

I was wondering did anyone have it rain during their wedding and have to use the inside rooms? I saw what they looked like when I went down there, but they weren't decorated for a wedding so if you had pictures of that I would love to see. Thanks

kodonne3 - it rained on my wedding day and my beach wedding was cancelled. I didn't have the option of the ball room because the other wedding that day was using it, so they wanted to stick us in the hallway of building 3. Luckily my photogs jumped in and said no way in hell! We ended up having it on the terrace of zocalo, but it only worked because we were such a small group. So sorry, I don't have pics of the decorated rooms sad.gif

You're right... I should ask. I am mad at my TA at the moment so maybe I'll wait a day wink.gif

I booked January of 2009... that's my only fear, that was 3 months after they opened.

At least that's what I say now...

every time I tick something off I remember 2 or 3 other things I need to do that I hadn't even thought of before!! every week my to-do list just keeps getting bigger and I can't get them ticked off quick enough!

haha I asked my FI to book a hotel room for the night of our AHR - about 2 months ago and it is yet to be done. his latest excuse is that he can't find any he likes so I have to decide and just pick one....I said to him I'd like just one thing to be a surprise out of the whole wedding and it would be nice if he booked the hotel as a surprise thing for me.....arrrggggghhhhh!!! this is why women always end up planning the weddings! men never get anything done! lol

OMG I love that theme!! that's going to look soooo funny!!

Hey girls!! I have FINALLY caught up on all the posts I missed over the past week. Just to fill you in a little...

I got a promotion for work aka Field Sales Trainer aka more work, same pay, more travel, etc etc. I am SUPER excited but I honestly do not know how I am going to fit everything. I have NOT even THOUGHT about the wedding in 2 weeks. I am SO SO SO behind. I am actually on the plane now, as we speak. but anyways, that's why I have been MIA...Does anyone have any advice on how to manage all of this? AND work out?? YIKES!!!!

 

I am so sorry that you girls have been having drama with the hotel. Just remember, every bride goes through it and ends up having the most fabulous wedding ever. I think every resort has it's flaws and definitely has communication problems. It seems a lot of things get lost in the shuffle. Just remember to bring ALL of your documents, computer, etc to show the onsite coordinator everything that had been negotiated. I am glad things are going more smoothly now. Does anyone need FABIO's contact info? I have it if you do (even though I realize I am about a week too late!) ha.

 

Congrats to all the new brides and welcome!!!!!!!!!!

A few people have asked me (friends) and I've been totally honest... this also I know is different with everyone the importance and whatnot. My wedding is also 90% friends, hardly any family and no parents. Not by my choice of course but it's just how it happened.

I'm having a legal day AFTER Mexico in Vegas baby! My wedding party already knows about this because they are all invited. We are renting a giant suite in Vegas and inviting our people to come down and all crash in the suite with us and we will have an Elvis ceremony, then go directly out to party with our friends! Can't wait :)
I stole your idea. FI and I are flying out the Wednesday after the wedding to go get married in VEGAS!! AAHHH I CANNOT wait!!! Definitely gonna do the whole cheesy wedding and party our faces off. I think our 2 best friends are gonna with us as well!foshizzle.bmp

    • 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!
