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,

    • what kind of headpiece did you wear? or are planning to wear?
    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
