You only want people at your wedding that really really WANT to be there and celebrate with you and FI - so if they'd rather be somewhere else - thats better for you for them not to be there. Thats why we all chose destination weddings anyway, right?!?!

    Only the people we really wanted to share our wedding with will be there.
    gift cards (maybe they're called something else over there!!) are little card things you get from the shop you do your 'gift list' with so you can write you gift list number on it for people to choose a gift from if they want to buy you something.

    thanks for thoughts...saying all that makes me feel more emotional than I did when I found out! (oh and did I mention I found out from seeing her status update on facebook!?!?)

Hopefully everything goes well with the ring! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
    yeah I know Meghan...at the moment I'm debating whether to say anything at all (I'm NOT a confrontational person) and just let her get on with it, or say something but not sure what that would achieve, or not say anything and just accept that once the weddings done, I'll just have to move on and leave it at that. I just don't have the energy for hatred, or rowing, or anything like that. FI makes me laugh because he says 'i love you for it, it's one of the things I love most about you, but you'd do anything for anyone but you let people walk all over you because your too nice all the time'! lol what can you do?!

    thank you though :)

      It's 3 nights in the hotel OR $500 fee.

        Katie -

        It actually sounds like you got a lot done so good for you!

        I would be super angry with your BM... I don't know what I'd say but I'm definitely more confrontational than not.

              If I remember correctly, I don't think they charge the $500 if they are staying at the resort. At my resort, there is a similar policy. And all I have to pay is for her 3 nights. AND the plane ticket!! UGH!!!!!!!!!!

                hope you've all had lovely weekends...

                an update from me:

                this weekend could be summarised as taking 4 steps forward and 2 steps back! lol

                we got our wedding bands delivered on Saturday morning - great :) except I don't like mine! lol it's the same width as my engagement ring and first thing FI and FMIL said was 'you can't see it!' the diamond in my engagement ring makes my wedding ring disappear. so we've now got to send mine back and TRY to make out it was sold wrongly so that I don't foot a third of the bill, AND pay for a whole 'nother ring! fingers crossed I will just have to pay to get it changed, as I will be making it 2 mm wider which means my 2 diamonds in it will also go bigger - OUCH to my budget! but as FI said, you've got to wear it for the rest of your life so if it needs changing, that's what we'll have to do.

                On Friday we found flowergirl dresses for FI nieces - soooo cute. when they both came out the changing room holding hands I nearly balled it! got so chocked up, and in a way, that made it all feel more real seeing them like that.

                Also sorted out my remaining bridesmaid's new dress (we wanted to get her a better dress kinda as a thank you and also as she's now on her own). thought, 'great, sorted' then went to order it online today (so we had a brand new one) and it says there's either a problem with the link or they're not stocking it anymore...arrrggggggggghhhhhhhhhh if its the latter, I am going to have a nervous breakdown....this was the only dress we found that everyone agreed on in about FOUR shopping trips! so please keep your fingers crossed for me! (you'll all know soon enough!! lol)

                inserts are done after a nightmare - i did them in Publisher on my PC, and then sent them to my email so i could open it on my dad's (which has the printer) except he's got a mac and doesn't recognise Publisher. Then copied it over on my Pc into a word doc and after much more fiddling about, got there, sent it to myself again, but when I opened it on my dads, it didn't like the changes I'd made to it in word! so FI just rewrote it all out in a word doc on my dads pc and we just had to forgo all the fancy editing and formatting. but hey, its done now.

                got our gift cards finally sorted after FI decided he didn't like the one we did in the shop and so did a new one online. then he decided he didn't really like that one and wanted to add to the one we did in the shop. long story short, I made it be ok with the one he did online and we just added some more things to it. so i then could write the gift list number on all the cards to go in with the invites! lol

                and finally...don't know what you will make of this, but on Friday I found out my BF (the one who's dropped out - you all remember that?! lol) is going to the Dominican Republic with her boyf for a week, just the 2 of them (her birthday present)....just a week BEFORE we all fly out for the wedding. think im in shock or numb because I really don't know how I feel about that or if I feel anything at all.

                ah well....I'm off to stuff envelopes with all our invites and inserts, so night all xx
                It sounds like you were SUPER productive!! I know everything didn't go exactly as planned, but "well done you!" ha I agree with your FI too...you would rather get it right than stare at it everyday and wished you had purchased a different ring!

                OMG! I am speechless about your friend. However, nothing surprises me these days. What are you going to do?

                    Hey ladies! Hope all had good weekend. Its count down time for me and Amy M!

                    Katie - I am shocked that your BM would even tell you that after all of the drama with her not being able to come to your wedding. Its sorta a slap in the face. Sure it was a gift but its still not cool at all. I am sorry.

                      As others have said, it's one or the other. We're paying to fly 2 photographers down and for both of them to stay the 3 days, plus her fee to shoot the wedding. It's not the cheapest thing in the world, but we did not really like the two options we were given and the pictures are the one thing that I am particular about, so we opted to spend the money.
