October 2010 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Runningbride, yes they have travel mugs. That is where I am planning to order mine from.

 

So I approved the final version of our invites this morning. They will be in on June 24, 2010. I am so excited, I love them. The invites are really just a formality because most people responded after they got the STDs though but people like our parents really wanted a formal invite so they are getting one.

 

So the gm outfits are proving to be difficult. FI keeps saying he doesn't care, he's easy..but every time I show him something, he doesn't like it. Ergg, it was so much easier finding the bm dresses than the gm outfits.

Cindy I know what you mean about the GM outfit. My FI says he'll worry about it later and it'll take him one day to find something but I"m not so sure. It took my sister and I 4 months to agree on something for her outfit. That's completely his department though so I can't really worry too much.

 

I ordered my mugs yesterday from discountmugs!!! I used a promo code for 15% so I thought that was quite good. Saved $35! SO excited to get them now!

Welcome! It doesn't sound like you are way behind and you still have time.

Ha, My FI is the same as the rest of them. He keeps telling me it will take him a day to get his suit so he won't go out till October! I am going to try and convince him to at least go in September!

Hi ladies!! In regards to waiting on getting your FI suits, something to keep in mind is they'll stop carrying lighter weight suits towards the end of summer and all that will be in stock will be winter suits. Once I told my FI that, it convinced him to go ahead and buy one. Check!

Good point Avong, I keep telling my FI that too because I am worried that, even by mid summer it will be hard to find light coloured suits in everyone's size.

Welcome Mexico102.

 

I'm in the same boat with FI as most. He doesn't seem overly interested in his clothing. He's planning on wearing linen khakis and a white shirt. He can always wear something he owns already, his loss, more for me to spend!!

I am getting more stressed. I am starting to feel like I have so much to do and its not getting done and I am running out of time.
Me too! The time is flying by and I feel like I haven't accomplish much. There is just too much to do. I am glad I am not the only one feeling like this :)

We have been looking at suits for that very reason....they will soon be out of season. I think we are leaning towards khakis with a linen shirt as well, but maybe a colored shirt. We did find a website that looks promising called islandimporter.com. They will do shirts in custom order colors, kids sizes too! Prices are very reasonable.

HA! I told my FI this and since he is getting a black suit he is convinced they will have a lighter material suit for him at the end of September! SOOO stubborn. Oh well, I warned him. He will regret it when he is sweating in Aruba with a heavy material black suit.

You're definitely not the only one! I feel like I should have everything done and I can't even do certain things until I get my final count from my RSVPs and people booking (I donâ€t care how much you SAY you are going, unless you book then I donâ€t consider you going). My RSVP deadline is 6/30 and I told everyone they need to book by 8/31. Everyone booked but 5 people. I just want to have everything done so I can breathe again!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
