I just absolutely cannot bring ANYTHING else with me, I'm already totally overboard.
Did send you a picture and dimensions? If they did, would it be possible for you to email me what they look like?

Dear American Brides,
You have such a larger selection, cooler things in general and better prices. I am so jealous! I (Heart) Target.
Sincerely,
Deprived Canadian
no Target?! I will never again take for granted that when my Target is out of something, I have 3 more within a 20 minute drive to check out! I have gotten so much OOT bags stuff from Target--yay for their Dollar Deals!

I don't even know what Target's is!!

ah the ignorant (or deprived) life on the other side of the pond!! lol
Hmm, I'm trying to explain what Target is...It's a huge store with awesome clothes, home goods, food, etc. That's where my FI and I registered for gifts! Target.com ? Furniture, Patio Furniture, Baby, Swimwear, Toys and more smile123.gif

I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that I did sent pictures to my WC and she bugged them for 4 months before they gave her dimensions that did not work at all. So now I'm back to trying to get different vases, it's been a few months since my new photos and dimensions were sent to them so I'm still waiting to hear back and no they never sent me a picture. It's kind of a "we don't know what you'll get until wedding day" smile27.gif

Oh I know! I love being able to walk across the street to Target whenever I please... I also live across the street from a mall and another outside mall and 18 theatre movie theater... gotta love LA :)

 

I have 3 Targets in less than an 8 mile radius and about 10 Startbucks in the same radius.

BD = Boudoir

A boudoir is a lady's private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning "to pout"

Basically it's a sexy, lingerie, pin-up (or whatever you want to wear) photoshoot of you for your future husband. I did one in January with lingerie and I'm having my photographer put together a nice leatherbound book with inscriptions in it and it will be given to him on our wedding day by my MOH while he's getting ready. It's his wedding gift from me :)

A lot of us girls are doing it, it seems to be growing in popularity.

    • 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.
