April 2010 Brides

Recommended Posts

Oh sorry if I wasn't clear Tracy - I meant if you liked the bags that I had bought to use before, that I would just sell them to you and send them your way! Then it wouldn't matter how close you were to Michaels :) I'm home tomorrow so I'll try to remember the pictures for you!

 

And I also forgot that I'm getting all my girls an anklet made for each of them. My girlfriend is a jewelry maker so she's designing something for them. She's also doing my hairpiece since I've been struggling to find what I want. I'm super excited to see what she comes up with!! I'm trying to get her to post on Etsy so that I can recommend her here.

Ohhh that's so nice.. I wish I knew a jewellery maker , that would have been nice. You can kind of personalize them a little bit to fit each personlitay

Hi Girls, I am getting married in Puerto Vallarta Dreams on 4/10/2010. I have been scanning this website for over a year and now I finally feel like my time is coming. I can't believe how fast time goes!!!

 

I have my dress, my colors are fushia with orange accents.

Were working on the grooms attire. I want white or tan linen.

We are searching for our wedding rings at this point.

There are about 42 people booked, which I am super excited about.

I need to plan my welcome/rehearsal dinner, any suggestions?

Actually now that I think about it, I have a ton of stuff to do.

 

Good luck to all the April Brides and happy planning

Happy New Year April brides. Less than 4 months....ahhhhhhh. My biggest stress is I don't have dresses for my girls yet. Can't find the perfect green...its like a celery green. Ordered one from Nordstroms yesterday. If its not the right color I don't know what I'm going to do.

Jenna in J. - have you looked into buying the fabric and having dresses made? I'm honestly not sure how much that would cost but if you're having too much trouble getting what you want at the store then that's the route that I'd be going.

 

Ckrn80 - for your welcome/rehearsal dinner, have you thought of renting a catamaran and going on a sail? You can get packages that are 2hrs, 4hrs or full day (those seem to be the common ones at least) and I know there are some threads here with suggestions for which companies to use... Either that or contact the concierge service at your resort and they should be able to help you too. Oh and that's awesome you have 42 people booked! you must be really excited about that!

 

 

 

And girls - I have to share my story about my dad because he's just way too cute for words!! Throughout most of my planning, my parents have been amazing - really supportive and helpful - especially considering the problems they knew I'd been having before with my Future-IL's. So my dad - not wanting to say something wrong that would upset me has had one line for the past five months "Yes dear, whatever you want". He is just totally going along for the ride and letting me direct as needed. So yesterday we were talking and he starts asking about what my parents are expected as far as hosting the rehearsal dinner and what do I want them to do and what are they required to do etc. but he barely got through it all because he was so awkward in trying to make sure that he said things properly to me! It was actually really funny! Now, we'd decided long ago that we're not expecting anything from our parents at all. We don't want anyone to feel unnecessary pressure or stress so of course that's what I told him and he almost sounded surprised that I was already decided on it! We're having a family dinner probably the night before our wedding so I said he'd need to attend that, but otherwise he was off the hook. I don't think he quite believed me at first but I know he'll be glad that he doesn't have any formal responsibilities when we're down there. I love my dad!!

I love that story.. It reminds me of my dad and I so much. My dad actually got very sick last winter, he went into a comma for 5 months.. they had to remove a lung so we weren't sure he'd live.. and then once he did get out of the comma, he didn't know me for a few months (cause of all the meds) I actually stoppd planning my wedding (in town wedding)
But ever since he came back around and I told him how we felt about spending so much money on a wedding here, he supported me first (way before mom) and said to do what we wanted, what makes me happy. And his been on the ride every since.. His happy I am not making him wear a suite, other then that his willing to do anything LOL
Your dad must be such a great person to be around!!
