I know, there aren't that many weekends left! My friends shower is March 1st, bachelorette March 21st (but we're going to the courthouse March 17th, oopsie!), and family shower March 28th, then we leave for Mexico April 8th. And my dress is suppose to arrive mid-Marchish.....if not, another purchase from JCrew will be in the works.

I honestly don't even really care to have an AHR but my parents and relatives who are not going to Mexico are nagging us!
Same here, we've talked about it but planned nothing and everyone keeps asking sad.gif

Found out today that my work collegues are throwing me a shower March 1st -- the day after our Buck & Doe aka.Jack & Jill (for those of you not familiar it's basically a big party with DJ, booze, food and prizes to fundraise for the couple) Im probably going to my own shower with a raging hangover. sick.gif LOL

 

Booked our appt to get our docs notarized next week. Booked our reception dinner with the WC this week as well. Things are rolling along...

We got our documents notarized and it's definately starting to feel real!! I'm hesitating to send them out this early though just in case they lose them. I think I'll just scan them and then send them out as soon as I can so that they're out of my hands! I can't believe we're so close to April!!! It's so exciting!!

 

Oh and I bought a new bikini too!! I really can't wait!!

I ordered everything through their semi-annual sale and even with the exchange rate and shipping, I think I got some really good deals...I've tried on my new stuff a few times already. My FI just laughs and is like, "another fashion show??" LOL

I have my eye on a VS bikini too - but I want to loose a little more weight on BL5 prior to going shopping!

I finished my bubbles, tissue holders, memorial fan, ceremony programs, and starfish placecards! Now I only have to complete my OOT bags on the DIY list!

YEAH!

Nice work Shannon! I wish that I could say the same!

I honestly haven't even been able to think about wedding stuff for the past couple of weeks as I have been busy writing up report cards for my many precious grade 1 students. They are due tomorrow so I'm plugging away to get them done and then ALL of my focus will be on wedding stuff!

I honestly feel like I have so much to do, it's very overwhelming! I know it'll all come together in the end but I'm beginning to stress out. Sometimes I think planning a DW is so much more work that having a wedding at home...but I guess it's all about what you make of it!

Hi Ladies-- I've been lurking on this post for a while I thought I'd chime in. Does anyone elses FI still need to purchase his suit and groomsmen clothes? I'm starting to panic that it isn't going to get done!

We still need to get our rings too so I'm way behind. I can't believe how close it is! It's hard to get any work done. I feel like I could do wedding stuff full time.

Yes!! I am in the same boat. I am flying out to see my MOH this weekend to get her her dress, and my FI is supposed to be meeting up with his best man this weekend to get pants/shoes (we ordered their shirts before Christmas). I know I'm probably over-reacting, but I feel like this is too last minute!

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
