December 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for such sweet words and advice. Hopefully, all will go well, and I should be fully recovered just in time for the wedding. Luckily, I have been able to get most everything done by now, so it should not be too stressful!

 

Right now we are working on picking up my mother's dress and finishing up our OOT bags this weekend. Did anyone find a good, cheap canvas tote bag? The best we can find is at this site:

Online ordering wholesale canvas tote bags

 

Thanks again, girls!

Hi I'm late finding this site but getting married Dec 19. I feel like there is sooooo much left to do. Once I past that 100 day mark I started freaking. Is everyone else on track? Is it just me!?!

Hi Jtswedding! Welcome to the forum :o) I think it is just the thought of being married in 100 days that starts to stress us all out! Just make a list of the remaining stuff and cross it off as you go. Most of us will agree that crossing stuff off that list is one of the best feelings :)

I just looked and I only have 17 days until our legal day... OMG that's so soon!!!

 

We got the boys flips flops (FI, GM, BM) last night and I heart them :)

Hi, Ladies

 

I was wonder if any one looking for Videographer in Riviera Maya area for the week of December17 to 24. I’m bringing down him with me .His job is fantastic. His price for videoing the wedding day is $1000 and I ask only $300 share of flight cost.

Pm me if you’re interested and I can send you video sample of his work.

So I thought I would check in and see how far you ladies have come in your planning to this point. I have done so much but it seems to be never-ending!

 

Still need to:

*Get dress fitted

*find my shoes (then I can do the fitting!)

*get FI shoes

*get groomsmens/FI ties

*make programs

*make starfish seating cards and table #'s in frames

*make sand ceremony set

*pick out must have songs for wedding & get them on CD/ipod

*order flowers

*book steel drum band for ceremony (ladies, and suggestions of a good band in the MB area of Jamaica?)

*put together OOT bags (all stuff has been bought except for the mugs, which of course FI was in charge of and has not done)

*ORDER FI WEDDING RING!!! He found one but it was $800 for white gold and nothing special so he chose not to order it....we really need to go looking!

 

Well let me know what you girls have left to do! I feel so behind! Everyone got in their final payments today and we have 53 people booked and paid for!!! My passport invites went out yesterday and I can't wait for people to get them!!!

    • 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.
