Yikes! I'm in BIG trouble!

Recommended Posts

I had two huge suitcases filled with wedding stuff plus my brother and my Mom both had one suitcase a piece of my stuff. Not to mention my dress and Fi suit and our carry ons with my jewelry. One of my suitcases was 65 pounds but the lady was so nice and I had my bride shirt on so she let it "slide" without charging us :) It's amazing how much help that bride shirt got me.... Poor DH had to carry my dress everywhere because it was too heavy for me to carry up off the ground. We were a sight.

Kat - I've never thought about wearing a bride shirt to get extra "help"! That's awesome! I figured the big white dress would do it, but Im going to pick up a bride shirt too :)

 

And btw - I love that you always change your siggy - it always gives us new eye candy!

This thread is really cracking me up!

I was JUST thinking yesterday about the closet in my house where I have all of the wedding stuff stored! I really should start to go through it and really see what I have! I better start letting my FI in on some of my wedding purchases I have made lately or he is going to KILL me when he sees all of the "extras" blush2.gif

 

I am planning on "nicely" giving my parents and FI's parents an extra bag or two to check for us..hee hee hee

 

And also I am planning on wearing some sort of "bride" shirt too! :) I will take all of the help I can get!

Thanks Ashli!

Really I am not the type to wear "bride" stuff for attention BUT I am so glad I did. People were overly nice to us and everyone kept saying "congrats" We even had some dude buy us coffee.
Here is a picture of me at the airport- You can't see the other rolly luggage thing but we had two. One for the dress and one for the carry ons. We were a mess and SO exhausted.

I also bought my Mom a Mother of the Bride shirt and she said everyone was super nice to her too.

I definitely have a bride shirt that I'm planning to wear to the airport. I hope its gets me some perks! Like a seat in first class and someone to carry all my stuff (oh wait, that's what FI is for lol).

Kelly, I'm procrastinating on going to bed and I keep opening up awesome thread after awesome thread all started by you!!!! How do you have the timehuh.gif

 

My sister gave me this adorable "sexy little bride" hoodie that I'm totally wearing to the airport. We are only allowed 2 bags with a total of 44 pounds. How the heck is that gonna work?!?!?

Oy vey ~ I think I'll be singing the same tune when it's time for me to pack. You should see our bonus room full of wedding crap ~ it is an absolute disaster. My parents keep talking smack, telling me I have "overbought" tttssssk, which of course I roll my eyes at but then secretly agree with deep inside blush2.gif

 

I will have to take a pic for you gals so you can see my monstrosity of a packing challenge ~ my next big problem is booking tix on an airline that allows 2 free bags each. So far Delta and United are my choices, but their high fares give me a headache sad.gif

I am sure that we will all be in the same boat...

My adorable MOH basically told all of my BM's (since I have no family local to where I live) that they will be taking an extra suitcase each if needed to help us get stuff to DR. We plan on taking at least one or two extra.. Gosh.. I hope that will be enough. Let us know how it goes!

Can't wait to see your review and pics!

I'm totally procrastinating and hanging out on BDW instead of cleaning my kitchen and getting the laundry done before we leave! Can't a little fairy come take care of it when I'm gone?angel2.gif

I have managed to pack just about everything. I have limited FI to ONE suitcase and that's it! So, we should be able to manage all of our own luggage. Hey, does anyone know when we go thru customs in Mexico if we go thru as a couple or individually?

    • 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?
