not sure what i just did, but i totally lost my whole post. let's try again, shall we?

 

jax!! so excited for you!!!!!

 

marie, have you been able to get anything sorted?

 

i cannot believe it's may already. i have SO much left to do ... pretty much dropped the ball on all of it in the midst of all the swine flu hoopla ... seemed like none of it mattered anymore in the grand scheme of things. we've pretty much resolved to go forth as planned, so i guess i better get my head back in the game, huh? time to get my ass in gear!

WHOOOO F-ING HOOOOO!!!! I am still anticipating that swarm of locus and hurricane to hit mexico so I am stock piling bug spray and water rafts LOL! At this point all that can go wrong will so I am anticipating anything and everything!!! If any of you are flying american airlines keep me posted of any cancellations!!! After this catrostophe my fi mother said she's cancelling/not going (and did) because she JUST DECIDED SHE DOESN'T APPROVE of her son getting married in MEXICO (mind you we asked her 2 years ago before we said anything to anyone and she said she was down) and who does this a week before we leave WTF!?!? SO after a very nice conversation between me and her (sarcasm)- she changed her mind. This has been one hella week! SO IF any of you have like a ritual of sacrificng a goat or pig or whatever for LUCK please let me know, I can't take no more drama - on the real!
God why did you persuade her to change her mind lmao

Jax - good luck

Lisa - no not yet I was away this weekend (and I'm dying right now lol) I rang then from the train station on sat and asked them if they were taking the piss lol they told me to ring at 6pm! and they'd frigging shut!! how bad is that lol

Anyway he said they haven't heard anything yet and I was checking on my phone for updates but they've done nothing since Thursday!

I am kind of decided on St Lucia now and the deciding factor was when FI said if we had to re-book he was telling FMIL to cancel because she needed to be at home with his sister (she's not got long left) so now I'm wanting despo to change lol

I checked into the hotel last night and she said oh you are lucky there is only one family room left!! I said WHAT i booked one they better be one left lmao anyway I was coughing and looked like death (can't believe i had to go home early!) and she said oh do you have flu? I said no its larengitis lmao

Alright ladies ... I am so close I can smell the sand and ocean already ... this weekend was supposed to be a whirlwind of getting stuff done ... and it partially was I suppose:

 

Saturday my parents came into town and my father (Mr. Last Minute) finally got his outfit for the wedding ... I don't have pictures, but I'll try and take some for the planning thread. He got a great green shirt and tie from Mexx. He's going to look SO handsome. :)

 

And while that went well - Saturday didn't go off without a hitch, of course. We went to the freaking TA to pick up our tickets and everything was going well until she asked Colin and I to have a look at an email from the wedding coordinator ....

 

Basically it said that if we wanted a private dinner (which I had thought from the beginning was INCLUDED in the package) we needed to pay extra for it to be outside, on the sand and away from the other geusts. If not we were going to be in the restaurant with everyone else - not what I wanted at all. So, it worked out to 35CUC (convertibel pesos which are the equivalent of $1 USD) which brought it up to about $600 USD... $600 FI and I do NOT have at the moment. So, that sent me into a bit of a funk ... and we were meeting my parents right after that.

 

Now, of course, my Mum knows me better than I know myself ... and as soon as she saw us, she's like: Are you OK? Which is the worst question to ask ... so I cried. Now, it made it look like I was crying because I was spoiled and wanted the dinner and couldn't have it. But in reality I was crying because I KNEW as soon as my father heard about this he would pay. They've already given us SO much it's ridiculous and I didn't want to tell them AT ALL. It took both my Mum and my father to get it out of me, and of course he said he'd cover the expense ... but I feel SOOOO bad about it ... they've done so much already ... so much ... *sigh*

 

After the tears and the gorgeous shirt and tie, we managed to find a really decent sounding iPod dock (JBL) but there were none left at the store (just the demo one) so, hopefully FI will pick one up from the Best Buy near his work today ...

 

And yesterday I managed to pick up 95% of the OOT bag contents (again, I'll post pics when I put everything together on Wednesday night/Thursday). I just need to pick up a few extras for my MOH, FG and Mum ... then it's all good!!

 

OH and I picked up my dress on Saturday too ... :) :) :) Fits like a GLOVE. Everyone forgot a camera though!! You girls will have to wait for the wedding photos to see it ... ;-) Hehehe

You SO need to keep me updated. I haven't checked the St. Lucia thread, so I'm sure if you've posted something there, but have you picked out the resort?

Blissfulmiranda a daddy's girl eh? don't blame you so am I lol I daren't tell him whats going on or he'd insist on paying and he hasn't got the cash so i just keep my mouth shut lol mind you its easier for me he lives 1000s of miles away so only communicate by text lol

 

Kirsty! No idea whats happening yet not heard from TA. I'm waiting to see what they come up with as to what we can afford. I've seen on virgin site the one they were telling us about for about £1600 each so i'm hoping he can do that otherwise i'm getting my cash back and doing it myself lol My friend is a virgin flyer so i can get him to refer me so he gets points 2 so thats ok

 

As soon as i know anything i'll post it

Well, we are all packed up...except for our clothes. I have to cut my packed items by at least 1/4. So not wanting to be at work but I only have 5.5 hours left between today and tomorrow!! Then its off to the airport early Wed AM

 

At this point I am only stressing about the 9 guests on Air Jamaica out of JFK Wed. I hear they just love to delay that flight....

well, it seems as though my FI is right...I am very stubborn.

I have decided that I will not let go of my dream wedding and am pushing it back to July.

It is far from going smoothly but at this point if it happens at all i will be happy.

The prices seem to have gone up...I am hoping they will come down and this whole mess of trying to fit a square into a circle will sort itself out.

I will keep you posted!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
