meghan, i know i'm coming into this a little bit late, but have you shown your FI moments that matters work? that's what tipped the scales in my favor as far as photography goes. these will be your memories of your day and you don't want to have to settle!! let us know what you decide!

i'm right there with you on the christmas shopping too! i hate being stressed at the last minute and not being able to enjoy the season!
I wish it was only as easy as showing FI the MTM photog. work! He's got a bit of a preconceived notion of a DW based on his brothers from a few years back. THEY only had pictures taken by friends and family and those turned out just fine, so why would we be different. Plus, he thinks that no one even bothers hanging any pictures after a few years so why does it matter having them stuffed into an album someplace. And, why pay all that money when you really only need four or five pictures. YES, I'm seriously repeating his words. Us & parents, us & wedding party, us... oh, so I'm only at three... you get the idea? So I'm hoping that just having our photographers for a couple hours and not including the ceremony (or guests honestly) then he'll be more agreeable. Plus I told him he doesn't have to smile for all of them either :)

OH, I should've mentioned this earlier. Last Saturday I had my "surprise" bachelorette party. I'm still waiting on pix but I had a wild night that included male strippers and bar hopping lol. I'm not all for the male strippers but the experience was fun, although I was pulled up on stage for a lap dance. Oh god, can't wait to show you guys pix whenever my friends post them.
FI doesn't seem to think we're doing gifts but I still will, even if they are more limited than other years. I'm a HUGE stocking person so he knows that I better have one stuffed and overflowing on Christmas morning as a minimum! LOL! Plus, if I get it started early then I can check people off and not even think about it as the holidays get closer.

And I got a laugh about your bachelorette party! I wasn't planning on anything traditional (i want to go winter paintballing!) but I still know that my sister and my BM's are TOTALLY in cahoots planning something for me. I'm a little scared! I'm glad you had a great time though, even if it was just for the experience!

Tonya..can't wait to see pics..sounds like you had fun!!!

 

For me we are just doing for our kids, parents, that's it. For both of us..a flat screen.....

 

I thought we all were in the 5mnths on our tickers..seems like mine has been saying 5mnths forever..

 

 

however if any of youwho follow photog blogs or anything see any photos particularly boudoir involving a big rig/tractor trailer plz let me know...TIA!!!

tonya... male stripers and lap dances?! that's hilarious!

 

meghan.. just make sure your guests are snapping away tons of pictures so you can still see everything afterwards. i've found that boys just don't get it sometimes!

 

shan.. the thing that stinks about BD pictures is that not a lot of photogs put them on their blogs. i can tell you though that my FSIL did hers for her husband when i did mine and she wore a hard hat, construction boots, etc. and had one of those "slow/stop" signs and it looked amazing! some times the things that aren't blatantly sexy can be the best!! if you do anything with a big rig we HAVE to see!

doblauvelt,

lol that sounds like so much fun!! you have to have a stip dance before your marriage for life!! I can't wait to have mine. Not sure what is in stores for me, but I'm excited to get all the girls together and have a night out, as it never happens to get all my gf together to party.

I'm so excited to see some of your pics!! You were able to take pics in the strip club? Our male strip club here in Montreal, you are not allowed to take a cam, and you have to turn your phone off. I wont be getting pics of me there if we end up there.

 

echo2_62,

Ha Ha you sound like me, even if the fi doesn't want to do it (anything) and I do, it still gets down. I'm not huge a xmas, just the xmas dinner. But the FI is really into the stocking stuffers, so I know I'll have a sock filled of stuff to go through xmas morning.

But like doblauvelt We have money issues, well not money issues more like just not having any because I've been off work for 2 and half years for medical leave. Xmas is over rated anyways (Just have to keep saying that to myself lol)

 

I finally decided what I will be wearing for my BD shoots. Montreal hockey jersy, Mike's fav. His Fav button down work shirt. and a sexy lingerie. One or 2 outfits will be with a pair of high heels.

 

ebredhawk

I think your right, allot of things one may not consider sexy, another just might. I decided to forget looking for BD poses and just see what happens when I get there, in hopes the photographer will coach me!

Lol- those are pics that I want to see, too! It sounds like you had a blast. I can't believe you got pulled up on stage- that is funny! I'm glad you had a good time.

I need to start Christmas shopping, too, because I'll have to mail just about everything out. FI and I agreed to take it easy this year with the wedding coming up. We tend to go a bit crazy at Christmas so this is overdue anyway. Still, I can't wait- it'll be the first Christmas in our new home so I don't feel like I'll need much more than that!

Ok, this will be quick....I promise - for those of you anywhere else in the world here is MY brief experience with our medical system in Alberta:

1. Go to the doctor for an ulcer

2. Get Bombarded by my Strong Eastern European Doctor about my thyroid and requisitioned to immediately do a full blood analysis/urinalysis/pelvic ultrasound?? (not sure where that came from?)

3. trying to contain my 16 month old who is terrorizing the office and politely rearranging all medical supplies for the scary Dr...

4. 5 minute appointment and complete lapse of memory as to why I was even there...I bloody forgot to mention the damn ulcer and I'm going away for a month next Friday...looks like I'll have to hit a walk-in clinic, and don't even get me started about H1N1 - 3000 people in one line today, ugh Then I get a call from NS (where my Family is) and they think my Sis has the virus, waiting on test results :o(

What a hell of a day! I'm heading to bed!

Hope you all have a fabulous Halloween! :o)

 

I tried to make it quick, sorry...just ask Meghan, this is pretty good for me! lol ;o)

We had our first Christmas in our new house just last year too! It was the only excuse we had for FI to NOT make it home for the holidays and seriously ALL his family commented on it at some time. Guess what, people miss a christmas now and then when they aren't 15 yrs old anymore! I personally haven't been home for Christmas in like five years sad.gif We've been trying to establish our own tradition of going skiing/snowboarding for a week at christmas/new years but it sounds like this year we won't make it. FI's niece is having her first christmas (although he doesn't entirely care - his family expects us there) and then friends are getting married at new years eve. Oh the decisions. Either way, I need a real tree and my stocking hung and stuffed full! You'll have a great christmas in your new house, I'm sure of it!

Hey Suzy! Okay i'm kind of giggling that you forgot to tell your doctor why you were there but it doesn't surprise me because of how much your brain jumps around LOL! Okay mine too! And the req. for a full blood test and ultrasound is normal and good too. I had all of that stuff done when I was getting tested as well. It's not entirely crazy afterall :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
