May 2009 Brides

Recommended Posts

I know!!! Last night FI was telling someone that we had been engaged for 4 months... I was like, ummm.. no... we've been engaged for 6 months and the wedding is only 6 months away. I think he was kind of in shock that it was sneaking up so fast. And it also really hit me when the words came out of my mouth...

I'm so scared to see how fast time goes by after the holidays!

 

I did however give all people going on our cruise and the ones that are procrastinating, a cut off of Jan 31 to let us know. This way I'm not killed with trying to order all of my stuff for the OOT bags at once. I have bought some stuff so far, I'm just ordering extra stuff that I can always use around the house, like lotion and body wash!

Ive gotten a few things like Tylenol and some first aid kits. I have been building it into my couponing trips so they come out to free or near free.

Speaking of first aid kits, I just bought 30 from Target & CVS. They are white Johnson & Johnson plastic kits with at least 15 band aids inside. Anticeptic wipes and gauze are also included. They were only 97 cents each- a great buy, I think! There is a little room inside to advil, tums, etc.

I am giving everyone until 2/15 to RSVP. Now I'm thinking about moving it up. The thing is, I know there are going to be last minute changes no matter what I do.

-Paid for our wedding suite

-Deposit pd on the wedding ceremonies

-Booked date of May 27th

-Compiled list of guests

-Save the date email sent

-Confirms with friends that are photographers that they are coming.

 

Sheesh it feels like I have done so much more...yikes

 

To do next:

-Finalize invitation list with FI

-Book Flights

-Renew Passports

-Start DIY invitations

 

So, I keep seeing OOT bags...I am totally out of the loop...can someone tell me what they are so I am not missing something I should probably be doing.

I feel like such a slacker... I got so much done in the first 2 months of being engaged... Ya know... all the big stuff, but there are a million details to still iron out and I haven't really been doing much as far as finalizing the little things... It's just so overwhelming!

    • 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?
