    I have been off work yesterday and today - yesterday I just couldn't get myself going lol so I did loads today instead!

    1. went through all your kind posts and messages about my pics and used that as a guidance as to which ones to pick (this did take a lot of time as I'm sad and did write out all the numbers and tallied up which ones people had voted for so I could see which were clear winners!! lol - yes I'm a geek!!).
    2. came up with 12 pics I really wanted and messaged my photog back and added comments on all of them as to what I want her to do with them!
    3. tried to find out once and for all what the hell we need in order to make sure our marriage is legal - there and back here (closer we get, the more I'm worrying about this). so I phoned the Mexican embassy in the UK and asked their advice. they gave me the number for the Mexican consulate and website - for any UK brides, this is really useful. so spoke to them and got all the info I needed :) feel much better now.
    4. phoned our TA wedding team to confirm they agreed with the Mexican consulate...they're requirements were a little different but they're looking into checking it out to update their records. also got confirmation that we don't need to do anything to the marriage certificate out in Mexico. and it's legal here in the Uk without us doing anything. but we can get it officially translated when we get back and register it here so they have a copy.
    5. also spoke to the TA wedding team about my dress - they no longer allow anyone to carry a dress on, and all wedding dresses must be packed in a 55x40x20 cm box and weigh less than 5kg (shame the wedding dress shop can't/won't/don't know how much my dress weighs!) so now I need to find a box and somewhere that will pack it for me.
    6. researched and bought name cards for AHR
    7. researched and bought favour gift bags for AHR
    8. found somewhere to hire a cake stand for AHR :)
    9. tried to confirm dates and details with reception venue but no-one answered - left a message and waiting for someone to call me back.

    PHEW! I'm shattered!! lol

    hope everyone's going good with their lists....

    this is all starting to feel very real now. 32 days now until we fly out and 37 days until we get married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tomorrow i'll be able to say 'I'm getting married next month!!'

    Amy, I love that you're packing already! I haven't even had time to think about that - I'm impressed!

    much love girlies
    Can't carry on your dress? Is this just for the UK?

        I've heard mixed reviews on this. If you call the airline they most likey will tell you it has to be checked or wont promise you anything. I also heard they flight attendants are usually very kind and excited for you and will just hang it up for you. MY FLIGHT, well it was a male I had to ask and it was a 100% FULL FLIGHT, he was not nice and he made me fold my dress in half and put it on top of my carry on bag in the over head . ... I was not a happy girl. But it ended up being ok since my dress was made of taffida.

          Hey. Yeah I think this is just for the UK - our flights are pants! Our airline won't even let you pay to carry on the dresses now... Apparently it's health and safety. I only checked due to our many restrictions travelling from the UK.

            AmyF - LOVE the glasses. I got replicas for my OOT bags too and they are so fun. Have to remember to make a note to everyone to wear them to the ceremony - or at least carry them there for a fun pic afterwards.


            Right girls - I am off to the airport for my shower and hen night in Baltimore tomorrow night!!! watch out!!!! I'll post pictures when I get back - we are all wearing horrific brdiesmaids gowns and I am in a $25 bride gown from salvation army. My mom found it - covered in sparkles and poofy sleeves - HOT!

            Have a great weekend.
            have so much fun amy!! Can't wait to see your pics! Mine is in a week and I can't wait for some girlie time!! Enjoy!!

            My sister came with us and then we had a picnic in the park after the ceremony.

            Please excuse the fact that FI desperately needs a haircut!!

                You know, I've been meaning to tell you...I grew up in Baltimore. All of my family is still there. My fiance and I live in Los Angeles, actually just a few miles from Amy F. (Though I haven't met her yet. :)) And fiance is from Austin, TX. Small world. So cool to see brides from our "hometowns" getting married at AS!

                    Definitely is a small world! We'll definitely have to meet up sometime, it's great we're so close, too bad not all of us are within driving distance, we could have one hell of a little get together :)
