I agree Lauren, it is so sweet to see the men being such good 'dads' to our pets haha.
Well we went & finished our bridal registry today .. that was fun! Also ordered Corey's wedding band(s). we got a gift card where we could get 2 free wedding bands (for attending some cooking show), so we ordered him 2 different bands (both tungsten, but one is silver colored and the other has some of the black in it). Also had a meeting today about getting a customized wedding band for myself. One of my friends had gone to this lady to get a custom band made and said it was really well priced, only like $300-400, so I went there and the price I got quoted was $1200! A liiiiittle more expensive .. so I may as well just go through Appelts where the engagement ring was bought this way we have the lifetime warranty. Also had to send my engagement ring in today to get it sized - since I have lost weight I had to get the engagement ring 1.5 sizes smaller and they have to ship it away to get that done .. I am without my ring for 5 weeks.. feels very weird without it & I'm wondering how many panic attacks I'm going to have where I think I have lost it! haha.
Noah, I think we will still go with Adrian, and I will likely get him to do the hair & makeup if I do decide to go with them since its only $75.00 more or so.
Carlotta, LOVE the ice cream idea! Super cute .. your guests will love those.
Pamela, we aren't switching resorts after our wedding. We are staying for 14 days, and the majority of our guests are staying only a week, so we will have the second week to ourselves (for the most part). My mom and her boyfriend are planning on booking an extra week too (how strange, spending our honeymoon with my mom & her boyfriend haha!) but they have said they will give us our time alone forsure. We also have another couple of friends who have booked for the 2 weeks too, but they only did so because it was a better deal for them. They've also said they will let us have our alone time. I'm not too concerned about it, I'm sure we will be able to enjoy spending time alone on our 'honeymoon' but it will also be nice having a few people there we know for going out in the evenings, etc.
I also have started thinking about how much & who we all need to tip. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Heres a question for you ladies .. what are your men wearing for the wedding (groom & groomsmen)? I wanted something a bit more casual (I think my fiance would have a heart attack if I put him in a suit in that heat).. so we were thinking dressier pants & a button up shirt (Corey wearing a white shirt, the other guys in a colored shirt). I found out that Moores has linen pants which are light material and are apparently really great for destination weddings. I went in to Moores today to take a look & they barely have any left .. In all of Canada apparently they are selling out so fast and aren't ordering anymore. I have also found linen pants at Le Chateau for same price, but the nice thing about Moores was that I was going to get 50% off everything! We were thinking of buying the guys their outfits for the wedding as part of their gift, so saving 50% is a big amount! Just curious what you girls are thinking about having the guys dressed in and where you're finding stuff?
Sorry for the long post .. today was a productive day for us! Hope all is going well for all you girls.
