Oh my gosh - I forgot to tell you guys we FINALLY picked our 1st dance song! Gosh that was the hardest thing of all to do. I could not find anything that worked - FI hates oldies (his only bad trait, i swear) and we both dont like cheesy songs, and it had to be 3 1/2 minutes or less b/c we are not the most gifted dancers and can't take lessons considering we live in difference freaking countries right now, so....

 

"This Kind of Love" by Sister Hazel

 

LOVE IT !!! After listening to mostly songs by female artists, I realized I really thought a man singing would be better. I am walking down the aisle to Alicia Keys, and thats a girl saying how she needs nothing but him, so this one is vice versa. So perfect!

 

Now on to find exiting down the aisle songs.... FI doesn't like "Sign Sealed Delivered" b/c its too much like an oldie (surprise surprise). UGH I thought it was perfect. Back to the drawing boards... or iTunes wink.gif Any suggestions huh.gif

 

BTW Megan - love your new siggy pic - so cute :)

Katie your hair looks amazing!!! I love it, it's so perfect and your necklace and tiara work perfectly! Are you wearing a veil?

Awww I love that song! Great choice Amy :)

Processional song eh, I LOVE oldies so I really don't know... I really wanted to walk down the aisle to "I Want to Break Free" by Queen but I don't think everyone shares my humor :) I am now walking back down the aisle to "You are the Best Thing" Ray LaMontagne

I think it's less stressful to NOT take dance lessons, I can't believe my 5th and final lesson is this Sunday and that's it... freaking scary.

aww thanks Amy :) strangely enough, that's not the necklace I'll be wearing, although it's a shame - that one was just a cheap one I bought from Claire's accessories for my BD shoot! but I love it now!!

I've decided against wearing a veil. The back of my dress is so beautifully detailed (I'll try and post a pic!) that a veil would hide it and I want people to be able to see my hair!! it's been one of those decisions where I've really not known what to do as it wasn't something I had particularly strong opinions about - just had to try and decide what I wanted to do!!

ahhh I knew there was something you were doing today!! (I was half right! lol) good luck with that - are you going to post pics?? I want to see!! bet it will look amazing!

well done you wink.gif that must feel great to have that worked out. and it seems like very fitting songs for you both - it will be perfect.

I too am having a nightmare trying to find an upbeat processional (sp?!) song. At this rate there won't be one! so I'm jumping in on the 'any suggestions' you've asked too!!

Do you have a good hairspray you use? I use a Frizzease one (not sure they have in UK) -0 but anyways - I am bringing my own hairspray b/c I know mine holds up against humidity and am not taking a chance with the hotels. You will definitely want something strong so your curls stay so bouncy! Are you considering taking your hair out after the ceremony? The bachelorette pix look amazing :)
thanks Amy... and yep, that's what I'm hoping! from the feedback I've had from past brides I should be ok - they're english is not very good, but take a photo and they're brilliant at replicating! and I've heard they overly love a bit of hair spray so think I should be ok with that! (if not FMIL loves her hair spray and I'm sure her one is called spray and freeze or something - either way its industrial strength stuff!!

I will probably leave it all like that for the whole day, and then the next morning we have our TTD session so I was going to take it out and try and redo it as I had it for my hen party instead!

ooo are you on my facebook and I didn't realise?? the pics are great - I keep looking through them and smiling. I had such an amazing night :)

Ok, I found this website where I can do these cute pocketfold invitations...I order the "kit" then can print them (FI's dad owns a printing business, so he can print them for me). Here is the website:
https://www.cardsandpockets.com/index.asp
I found an inspiration on BDW that is soooo cute!!! I gave everyone a deadline of April 23 to book the resort, so the invite will pretty much be for etiquette purposes. Everyone will have booked (hopefully) by then. And we can pick up a few stragglers. Thoughts?

We like what the resort has to offer, but would like some honest reviews. Any tips, advice you have would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi!! Congrats and welcome!!! Picking out the resort is soooo hard. I struggled with it for months and months and months...and sometimes I still question my decision. I think everyone is like that because there are so many unknowns. I would take every review with a grain of salt. As much as you look at the bad, also look at the good. Like Amy said, I have not heard of a single bride coming back from AS with a bad experience. Everyone has just raved!!! AS was my second choise...I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the resort. I just wanted adults only, so I chose Le Blanc. Good luck! I would make a list of your "must haves" and make sure AS (or whatever resort you love) matches those "must haves."

Your "will you be a bridesmaids" messages in a bottle were amazing, but a quick invite with a web address to your wedding website and your TA's contact details are all your guests need.

Put all your addresses in an excel spreadsheet and use the mail merge function to print labels. I used "dafont.com" to download a cute font and printed the labels from my computer and used them. No way was I going to hand write all of those addresses.

Lastly, if this does not work, GO GREEN, and send e-vites.

Come on girl - this weekend - you can get it done!!!!

loads of support girlie from me
That is SUCH a good idea about the evites!! AND I found a girl on here that did the same thing and her email invites are PRECIOUS!!!!!! A part of me wants to keep SOME things traditional...but I see what your saying...thanks so much for the idea!

I LOVE that Sister Hazel song...great choice! I would just go through your ipod or itunes and start listening to whatever pops up when you guys are driving places. I bet SOMETHING will come up!! I haven't decided on any songs, so I am not much help! haha FI and I drove 4 hrs to the beach a couple weekends ago and just played XM the whole way...we found 5 or 6 songs that we are at least considering for our 1st dance. I think the more stuff he listens to, something will come to mind...
