Happy wedding day, Michelle! Hoping you're having a great time.

 

I seem to have survived the bachelorette mostly intact, although the sun seems a bit painfully bright today. I had a great time, I think everyone did! My MOH did an awesome job- she really rocks. I don't have any pictures but she took a bunch so I'll see if I can post some when I get them. For now I'm going to take a nap though.

Taylor you did a great job with your planning thread! What a great idea to use washers to weigh down your place card holders a little! Very creative :) And I love the Dr. Seuss book signing as well - I used to have SO many of those hard cover books as a kid and I still love them. Oooh, and I love your seahorse too!

 

So I'm just at my office at a ridiculously early time for a sunday, because I went to the airport to see off the first half of our group flying down to the resort. I live about five minutes from the airport so it wasn't a big deal. I also had to pick up a copy of our music from one of the groomsmen. He was halfway through a big line when I got there, so I waited talking with a few other friends until he was done. When I went to grab the cd before they went through security, I found out that he'd just checked both cd copies *and* his ipod and didn't think twice about it! He knew that was the main reason I was coming to the airport too! OMG! So his wife sync'd her phone to his laptop last night so we're hoping that she captured all the songs, even if they aren't in the correct playlist. Unfortunately it just means that I'm left hoping he got all the correct song versions since I haven't even had a chance to listen to everything yet. I cannot believe that he just did that. Anyways, I can't do much about it now and I'm debating getting another friend to download a few of the important songs just in case. When I just told FI, even he was the one to say that these GM's are totally not holding up their end of things very well at all and I have to try not to panic about the things I can't control at this point. He's right but I have no idea how people can't be more responsible!!!

 

Anyways, that's my rant for the morning and things are going well otherwise. We've got SO much luggage packed right now and I hate that we need to travel so heavy. I am totally the person who will fit everything in to a single bag, either checked or carry-on, just to avoid lines and waiting etc wherever possible. The nice thing is once we give all our stuff out, the return trip will be much easier since most of the bags will nest in with each other! About 26 hours until we're at the airport and on our way.... HOORAY!!

 

Mel - glad you had a good time at your bachelorette party and I hope that you've recovered now too wink.gif Hehehe, and I hope that Michele is feeling alright today and had an amazing day yesterday too!

 

Erin - you must be in full swing getting J's daughter all packed up and ready to go as well huh? Was there a lot still that you've got to do to get ready? You and Mel both seem more prepared than I am and you still have just a couple short weeks left!!

Thank you for the compliments!

 

That really sucks about your music!! I would say that if it's easy to do and no trouble at all, then sure download a couple really important songs to make sure you have the right version. For the others, I'd just let it go. No one but you will know if a song isn't the right version and hopefully your guests will be having too much fun to care! I think that with 26 hours until you go, you should not have this on your plate of things to worry about.

Meghan- what a stupid thing for the GM to do. I agree, maybe just try to download the important songs just in case and then try not to worry about it. I'm glad your FI is starting to notice some of this behaviour, too.

Wow- can't believe your first group of guests is leaving, time is really flying now. Just breathe deeply and picture yourself relaxing in Mexico.

 

Erin- I can't believe we have just over two weeks to go! Two weeks from today and I'll be on the plane heading out- sun and sand here I come.

 

Taylorwd- I took a look at your thread, too and I love it! Thanks for putting it up, those are some of my favourite threads. I've got one in the works, too, I'll probably post it the week before we leave.

 

I'm feeling fully recovered today and ready to work out and then go into work for my last shift. I only have to do four hours today so that's nothing- I'm just wrapping up loose ends and finishing up a funding proposal and then I'm out of there! I took a total day off from the diet yesterday, too, and just snacked on leftover crackers and cake from the bachelorette so I've got to get some real food into me today. FI and I need to go over our wedding playlist tonight, too.

Me TOO MEL!!!! 2 weeks today and we'll be on a plane as well! I can't wait, I need a vacation from all this wedding planning!! lol

I can't wait to hear about everyone's trips and see all the pics it's going to be amazing!!

 

MEGHAN!!!!!!!!!!! please tell me this is not the same GM that decided he didn't "like" what he was to wear to YOUR wedding!! I probably would have had a class 4 meltdown at the airport!!! lol

 

Taylor - awesome job on the planning thread!!! I don't think I'll be organized enough to pull getting everything together, well if I can swing it, it will definitely only be after the wedding!!

Hi ladies! I have been absent for about a month I think. I've been so super busy with wedding stuff and just life in general! I've got a lot of catching up to do but I just wanted to say good luck to everyone. We leave on Saturday!!!! We have 16 total people coming down and 11 of those people are flying down the same day. 7 of us are on the same flight even :) I'm so excited I can hardly wait to get through this week. Everything is pretty much done. I just need to finish packing which can wait until the end of the week. Its finally getting nice here in MN so a lot of stuff that I would wear down in Mexico (short sleeve stuff, cropped pants) I'm finally able to wear here due to the nice weather. I'll be doing laundry late this week because of it for sure.

 

Have a wonderful trip ladies and I'll try to keep updated this week. My mind wont be doing a good job while its at work so I'll be on a lot I'm sure.

    • 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.
