Hi Ladies!

 

I was excited about this and since I can't share it with my FI, I thought I would share with you!

 

The back story: When my FI and I started dating he ALWAYS wore his favorite pair of sandals (even in the snow) that were primarily duct tape by that point. As new holes developed, he would simply add more duct tape to patch them up. Needless to say, everyone gave him a hard time about those awful sandals. Eventually, as we were walking home one night, I "accidently" stepped on them and broke them blush2.gif It really was an accident, but I didn't feel too bad. Its been a running joke with us and he has been giving me a hard time about "killing" his sandals ever since.

 

Now that I wrote a novel... here is my point =) We are including a roll of duct tape with the "obituary", and instructions to make your own sandals in all the OOT bags. Here is the obituary:

HILARIOUS! A very creative, personal touch for your OOTs, and your guests will certainly have lots of unique memories...not only of your beautiful wedding, but of the way you incorporated such a fun touch!

 

Your FI will appreciate your recognition of his fallen sandals, as well! Geesh...men, right?! :)

That's so awesome!

 

I wish my man had something I could "kill" and then honor.

 

The only thing that comes to mind is a ratty old pair of undies that he refuses to throw out. I think my guests my have me committed if I threw a ripped up pair of undies in their oot bag....

that was so funny.

what a great idea to let your guests in on the joke. I just laughed so hard. I think all of us have FI's with some sort of embarrassing article of clothing etc that resembles the story of "the duck tape sandals". Mine wears a grateful dead t shirt with so many holes he might as well not wear a shirt. I find it hysterical and mortifying at the same time.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
