Thanks so much. I am in love with it and your right, it's hard not to stare at it all day. I hadn't even heard of the Vera Wang collection until we got engaged. Apparently my soon to be hubby is more fashion forward than I gave him credit for. lol I'm sure if it was up to us girls we would have one on every finger.

 

Your wedding is soon......how are things coming along?

I know! It's scary because 6 months will fly. Everything did not start falling into place until now, so its a little hectic but also exciting. We have our group air booked, our room blocks booked, invitations- we hit a bump in the road with the manufacturer but they will be delivered shortly, we just booked our AHR, DJ is booked, photographer is booked, my bridal party is working on my shower (although I fought them not to do one, my mother and MOH, as annoying as she has been this entire time, insist I deserve one), next up is planning the bachelorette, the fiances bachelor party is booked (and paid for because the guys booked it as soon as they found out haha), My dress, headpiece and veil have been purchased and made and are in the vault at the store, I just went bridesmaid shopping this weekend and we narrowed it down to 2 dresses, the groomsmen and grooms suits have been ordered, my church is working on gathering the paperwork we need to marry in the church in DR.

 

Next I have to figure out souvenirs, and my welcome bags. Everything is coming together nicely and my only concern is ensuring we have the money to pay for everything! Which is a biggie. We have a tight budget and we are in the red (because of my insistence at having an AHR). I started bartending for extra money but have not been able to find steady employment- just a few private parties here and there, but I have a bunch of upcoming interviews lined up- So lol it should all work out.

Our destination wedding is sneaking up on us and I just remembered we need to shop for wedding bands! How far in advance do people typically do this? And any suggestions on styles or stores to look at? My FI picked out a square cut solitaire set in platinum for my engagement ring....

For timing I think it depends on if you plan on going with a custom piece or not. Mine ended up being custom made, I believe we gave them the go ahead in November to start making it and we took it home with us sometime in December (We are getting married in Feb) so we had lots of time. Keep in mind if you decided to get married in Canada before you leave you will need the rings for that also. My fiances wedding band we ordered directly from the store and just had to be sent for sizing so we got that back within 2 weeks.

I purchased my wedding band really early (9 months before wedding) as I knew exactly what I wanted and it was on sale for almost half price.  I would say leave lots of time to go shopping especially if you don't know what you want.  And try going back to the store your FI bought your ring from.  Often times they have matching bands or bands that work well with the engagement rings they sell (such as from the same company, ect.)  And try lots of different types and styles on unti you find the one you love.

My fiance and I kinda picked out rings together.  I always thought I wanted a two gold, princess cut solitaire with no side stones and then I wanted the Lotus engagement ring.  He massaged me over to this ring and I feel in lust.  When Kathy Faigle (of Faigle and Son's in Cincy) presented the entire wedding set with the bands on top and bottom I feel in LOVE.  I'm only wearing my engagement ring of course but I cannot wait to wear the entire set.

I love my rings but love him even more!

 

Ciao,

    • 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.
