OMG Where did the time go!?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

Ok, honestly, I wen to sleep, woke up and there's less than 3 weeks until my wedding! We leave for Mexico 2 weeks from today and I am soo unprepared but yet not freaking out....I've spent the past month and a half working 35-45 hrs at my "part time" job. It was an overnight shift...so I went in at 11pm and usually got out at 7 or 8am. I then worked my regualr full time job from 9-5. Sleep occasionally took place from 5-9 when I would get up and do it all again. This would by why I've been MIA from the forum. But I've been thinking of you ladies a lot!


This is what i've accomplished since Dec 23rd (this is how little I've done...)

-Ordered our wedding bands!

-Ordered GM shirts

-Ordered Sarongs for our Female Guests

-Ordered travel candles for our OOT bags

-Ordered the stuff for our sand ceremony

-Got a doggisitter


That's the done list, lets not talk about the to do list. BUT, I go back to my regular 12 hrs at my part time job next week, so I'm sure I'll get it all done, and whatever doesn't get done, well, I guess we'll improvise :)


I've missed you ladies!!!



OH! And congratulations to everyone who's gotten married the last two months! I can't wait to go back and read yoru planning threads and see your pics!!!!! I'm sorry I missed it sad.gif

Hi Dez, I've been wondering where you were! The January brides thread has been hopping and we haven't seen you! Good luck with getting everything done. It will all come together for you. Boy, that's a lot of working. I bet you can't wait to get to your DW just for some time off!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
