Katie - I LOVE YOUR SIGGY PIC!!! SO freaking cute :)

 

I am not glad you feel the same was as I do, I wouldn't wish this on anyone but it's a little relieving to hear I'm not the only one that bawls her eyes out over little things.

 

Yesterday was my 2nd (and last apparently) dress fitting and was having a bad morning already, Sunday through Monday arguement with FI and since we work together and drive together now (he just sold his car and is buying a new one) there's no escaping each other. So my MOH & bridesmaid who were supposed to come with me I let them they didn't need to come because I was having a bad day etc. and they both ended up shifting their schedules to come and suggested we find a wine bar and have a glass of wine after the fitting was successful and the dress came home with me. This ended up being a whole night of wine and no wedding stuff soooooo I really need to lock it up and get focused! Needless to say, we had a blast :)

When are you guys updating it for the next two weeks?
Oh good! I tend to be blunt and trust me, I wasted a lot of time waiting until I finally just started being direct with people and that really did work better in the long run. People need to understand you need advanced notice since you have to plan.

Monday the 19th I'll ask everyone for their new to do list :)

aww thanks :) it turned into a bit of a theme for the night and they weren't even ours!! lol

I know what you mean, but what I was trying to get across in a very roundabout way (!!) was that, you're not alone. grouphug.gif

aw sounds like you had a good time at your dress fitting :) it must be hard not being able to have any time apart to just both destress from each other, so even more why you needed last night :)

well tomorrow evening is my final (again!!) dress fitting! they took it in 2 inches last time, and this time I think its about an inch and a half, but more round the waist rather than down the sides of the corset. we'll see how this one goes! i hope it's right coz I'm running out of energy to keep going back!

only 13 more days of work!!!! 19 days until we fly, and 24 until we're getting married!!!! wahooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo friday.gif

The honeymoon suite ROCKS, but it is verrry pricey in my opinion. I only got upgraded because there was a room mix up and i was a unhappy girl. But Im sure the rooms would work just fine? I was in both standard and premium, I did not notice a big difference in size at ALL.

Hope this helps!

well they were going to give us the swim up premium for free since we have so many guest but they said to upgrade to the honeymoon suite for 525 each for me and my FI.....i mean its not terrible but free sure sounds good LOL ....was the honeymoon suite substantially larger than the premium rooms? Is it just the balcony that makes it so great?

Alrighty girls, it's time for me to check out, unwind, have some cocktails in the Mexican sun, and marry the love of my life!!! I have been on cloud 9 all day today, people say I'm glowing! It helps that my staff threw me a surprise party tonight, which was just the sweetest thing.

 

Some of my family is already there, and when I talked to them today, they just raved and raved and raved. HOOOOOOOOORAAAAAAAY! I guess we done good :)

 

Good luck with all the planning over the next couple weeks! AmyKH and Katie, I can't wait to hear where you're at when I get back! I think you're up next!!!

 

Thank you for keeping me sane, ladies. I wish I could take you all with me!! We'd have one hell of a good time!!!! grouphug.gif

A night out with amazing friends and no stresses, just relaxing and having a good time (and getting drunk! lol). the night wasn't without it's dramas but it was brilliant nevertheless. got back to my friends at about 4.30am and think we went to bed about 5.30am haha love it!

pics are on my facebook for those who want to see (and still other people's pictures to come). sorry I'm at work now and am strapped for time to try and get them onto photobucket and then copy links etc etc (yep, I'm being lazy!! lol)

the dress I ended up wearing was one I ordered after complaining to the company that sent me the wrong one. They gave me a full refund for the other dress, including my cost of next day delivery, and gave me 10% off the new dress I ordered and sent it next day delivery free of charge :)

My BF (the one who pulled out of Mexico) turned up late sad.gif she (and her mate) didn't even make it to the meal, and got to the club about 11pm. I should be bothered (everyone else there was) but I decided that if I did, it would only ruin my night and I didn't want anything to do that so I just accepted it and moved on, but the things are being stored in the back of my mind until after the wedding!

I had my hair trial on Saturday too and I will upload the pics on here because I was soooo happy with it. now all I have to do is pray the stylists at the hotel can recreate it! good thing is, that hairstyle then also formed the basis for my hair for my hen night (my hairdresser just took the tiara out and let most of the curls out so I had a half-up, half-down do)

I also took my engagement ring into the jewellars yesterday to get some scratches buffed out before the wedding....so now I am weirdly engagement-ring-less. I have moved my ring from my right hand there instead so I at least have something.

can't believe the weekend's over already....now no more time off until we actually fly out. 3 full weeks left of work!!!!!!!!!! and then 3 weeks off!! woooooooooo!
Yay! Yay for all of that. So happy things are starting to shift. And your wedding is soooo soon!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
