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!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
