Haha, that's like me and FI but he has his fantasy sports teams to keep an eye on and I have BDW.
I keep telling FI - "My friends on the Destination Wedding board say"...he actually thinks it's interesting and good that I have something to keep myself occupied as he plays World of Warcraft!

nbulldog, your dress is beautiful!! you can't fight it when you find "the one", even if it isn't what you originally expected!

 

sarah, we are here to help! i think we're all at different stages, so it'll be nice to bounce ideas off each other!

 

i JUST posted my invitation thread... got them mailed out yesterday!

at first FI would laugh at me for how often i was on the forum, but now he too calls it "BDW" and when i have a new idea he immediately asks if i got it from a girl on here. he catches on quickly!

Loved the STDs Erin!! I know I mentioned about the nail clippers in your thread but the stupid corners piss me off and using scissors aren't doing the job either. Nice improv!

tonya thank you so much for your compliments!! i always hound FI because he leaves nail clippers out on our coffee table, but this one day they came in handy!!

 

also, i had to share with you all that i had my first guests call to book their trip! my TA is out of town until next Monday, but my FSIL and her husband (they are a bridesmaid and the best man) called her and set up a time to get them all squared away! my FMIL is having pretty severe surgery on Monday so I figured it would be a while before anyone really paid attention to the invites, but FSIL said that they needed something happy and something good to look forward to!

So I got my free invitations from VistaPrint this weekend. The paper quality is eh, but when I went back on VistaPrint, they don't have matching response cards or enclosure cards....my mom thinks I should just find something that blends....but I found invitations that I LOVE on WeddingPaperDivas.com that come with everything that I can get for under $200.

 

This is the invitation from VistaPrint - not a photo but from the website

and matching envelope which feels like just a regular envelope...so it seems a little cheesy for a wedding invite.

But then I found this on weddingpaperdivas.com and I LOVE THEM

They match my colors and they're just so pretty....I think I have to spend the $ and get the pretty ones.

 

Erin how is FMIL?

Hi Ladies!!

 

I am also a 4/2010 Bride, I am getting married on April 23rd at the Moon Palace. I have just received my STD's, they will be going out this week.

 

Dress shopping all the time and can't seem to find the ONE! rant.gif

 

I booked our resort... so it's all coming together.

Erin, I've been using nail clippers for the corners bc of you now and they work great! lol and don't worry, my FI does the same thing.

 

jerseykitten, you're better off with the second set of invites.. those are a lot better than the vistaprint ones. the color and the design pops out more.

 

nj hunnie- congrats! we'll be getting married exactly one week apart at the moon palace! don't worry you still have awhile before you need to settle on a dress. I tried on a lot of dresses too before I found "the one". at least you have your STDs, mine are still in the process of being cut lol.

michele, the second ones are GORGEOUS! i've seen those invites at vistaprint and they're pretty, but if they aren't the quality you want, then it's not worth it! sounds like you'll get a great deal from weddingpaperdivas.com too!

 

and thank you SO much for asking about my FMIL! her surgery went REALLY well yesterday and they did not have to go as high up on her leg as they thought since she had good blood flow down most of her calf. last i heard today she wasn't having any pain or discomfort and was up, joking around and eating a TON! all good signs for her recovery!

 

victoria, i'm so jealous you get to keep dress shopping! while i'm happy i found "the one" on my first try it is such a fun experience! good luck and let us know if you find your perfect one!

 

tonya, how are the invites coming? i'm so glad the nail clippers are helping! at least our FIs can help with wedding stuff even when they don't mean to!

    • 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.
