I feel productive

Recommended Posts

Ok...so it seems that FI and I have worked through our issues, for the time being at least :) There's a little more that went on after my thread about it, but we were honest with each other and we seem to have moved on. :)

 

With 6 months left I feel like it's "crunch" time :) We've alredy been engaged a year and a half LOL

 

This past weekend I went and ordered our invitations (we decided on them in Feb) and confirmed the ring FI wants. He also brought up the issue of what the guys are going to wear and I think we figured it out :) I also booked our airfair for the wedding.

 

Yesterday was my birthday :) We had planned to go to the beach, but it was crummy here in the morning. He asked what I wanted to do so I asked him if he'd really do ANYTHING I wanted LOL he said yes...so we went into Manhattan and went back to the jewler where he got my e-ring...well, they weren't in so we wandered around and spoke to a couple of different jewlers. We found one that we really liked and he does custome work and had some suggestions about a wedding band to fit my e-ring. And we liked his prices :) I am goign to go back in a week or two and get the ball rolling on that one.

 

Afterwards we wandered around China Town and Little Italy, had coffee and Gellato and then back to China Town. I can't tell you how many of those shops we went into, but I finally found the perfect Pashima's for my BM's. Their dresses are aqua and light ivory...so the pashima's are solid ivory but have a circular design on them.

 

I just emailed a company about AB Swarovski starfish pendents that I am going to use to make the BM's necklaces and earings and I ordered my tote bags from www.cheaptotes.com...FYI - the natural canvas is on sale for $.99 and cupon code "cheaptotes" saves you 10% I think ($.01 per bag).

 

Don't worry ladies, I'm taking pictures of everything and posting them here and there (I already posted my invitations). I plan to do a full and complete and LONG planning thread!!!!!

I can't totally see why you feel accomplished. I think it's great that you two are addressing your issues pre-wedding and it is also so nice to cross things off of your huge wedding to-do list. Way to go, girl!

Hey Dez!

I bought a swarovski starfish pendant off of ebay before my wedding last year, you might want to check there to compare prices too, I'm not sure how much they are from the company you contacted.

Good luck!

I actually did look on ebay but I get confused/overwhelmed there sometimes :)

 

I got them for $9.16 each. I bought them in "bulk" meaning I needed more than 6. But they had them in a group of 6 for 54.95 and individually for $10.50...I emailed asking if I got 8, would I have to pay the $10.50 for the 2 extra...she said she'd adjust it for me :)

 

I'm BIG on customer serview and I literally emailed them at around 6:30 this morning and was emailed back at 8:30 (probably as soon as she got in).

 

Once I get them in, I'll write a review of them, so far, this company is getting an A+ from me :)

 

My BM gifts are almost done!! Whoo hooO!!!

Wow Dez, you are on the ball! I'd love to see the pendants and pashminas.

 

I was thinking of buying our moms some pashminas.

 

Good for you!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
