Thanks Renee. I was very happy with that decision too!

It was this one I bought later:

B/c I decided I did not like this one anymore:

Always trust your gut - my friends loved this dress on me but 6 months later I still had doubts and bought the new one. Which I loved!!

Let me clarify this, after reading what Amy & Wendy mentioned. I never tried to order a glass or wine or champagne. I tried ordering a mixed drink so maybe there's a difference? I also tried this the first day I got there and once I got rejected I never tried it again. smile35.gif

It's been a few days so I am just catching up. I have to say that my to-do's are being accomplished more slowly than I'd hoped. However, I think we've decided on our DIY centerpieces!!! cheer2.gif FI's cousin came up with an idea to take these cardboard boxes (I know it sounds cheesy, but wait) and cover them in paper and decorate them the way we want to. So, hesitantly my mom and I went to Hobby Lobby and bought all the stuff. She then text me a pic of the box all decorated and I have to say it wasn't what I wanted but it looked good!! So, I will post pics as soon as Sprint stops acting up. My mom's a teacher so she's our for summer and needs stuff to do I guess.

Also, reading your posts made me want to plan our honeymoon too. We haven't really even decided to have one, but I'm pushing for one after our AHR. So, I looked up Zoetry and I agree it's vvveeerrryyy nice! And in case you ladies are interested, they have a buy one night get one night free!!!! So, I am very tempted to book and surprise FI with that. I know it's still expensive ($1400 for 2 nights) but when else will you be able to stay somewhere like that for 50% off?
Can't wait to see your boxes! Once I see a picture I'll have a better idea of suggestions on packing. I say it can absolutelly be figured it so it works cheer2.gif

Man, FI would NOT let me book Zoetry but 50% off?! DO it girl! I'm positive it will be an unbelievable experience!

Do they supply something to carry them in to take them home/save for later?

Also, you keep saying you're bored and all, but I can give you lots to do!!! wink.gif You can plan a get together for all us girls to vent and take shots since you missed that! Wouldn't that be something?!
LOVED my cigar bar! I originally got it for FI as a part of the wedding I knew he'd love. Everyone got down on the cigars and people were still looking for them after they left and asking me if I had any leftover after the wedding. I honestly only knew a few of us would smoke them but people really got into it. The experience was really cool and you get to pick $200 worth of cigars from the cataloge they have that FI picked once at the resort. I bought cigar togo bags not realizing they come individually packaged in a hard plastic case inside a cigar box. I didn't even use the to go baggies.

I think it was well worth it, great photos, great experience, everyone was really impressed and people smoked cigars who don't even smoke anything in general.

Ok ladies I am one step closer! My TA is in chats with Tiffany and the resort to book my date in stone and get my group rate/block done!

In the meantime, I typed out my ENTIRE budget last night and was A TON over so started making cuts only to get super depressed then cried to MY FI to which he reminded me that it really doesn't matter because we are going to have the best time no matter what. The funniest part is while making cuts with both decided we CANNOT cut the Mexican Donkey Cocktail Party. The Donkey seems to be the one keeping us sane when stress kicks in. I think of getting a beer from the donkey and suddenly everything is ok!

Good News is budget is now back under a mangeable amount and next stop get this resort BOOKED!!! YAH!

In GOOD NEWS I got an email confirmation for my appt at J. Crew Wedding Boutique in NYC. I will be up there for business in July so I am going to MY FIRST offical Dress outing to see what they have. Up till now it's been all on the internet!

Yeah it's very easy to go sailing over your budget (like me, budget nearly tripled) so it's good you're doing this.

My suggestion is to make sure your cocktail hour is long enough, I saw the donkey on my way in and loved it but by time my photos were done on the beach he was gone and I don't have have a single photo with him.

Just thought I'd mentioned an idea I'd had about the fabric. I haven't really looked into it too much yet (because I'm nowhere NEAR that point in my planning) but, I know that Ikea sells some sheer/organza type curtains for pretty cheap (I think under $5 per panel). Their standard curtain is just under 10 ft. I think. For what it's worth it might be something some people want to look into.

    • 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
