Ok that gives me hope! I have a chiffon dress with a train... not a long train but long enough that it will become annoying at the reception, trying to dance etc... so hopefully there is a way they can bustle it for me too!

Honestly... I never knew it was this popular either until I found this board! We know a couple that did it last year but it was more low key, kind of last minute thing. They were already planning the trip to Mexico and decided to just get married there. I have always wanted to get married on a beach. It just makes more sense too, because all my family is in the West of Canada and have to travel anyway. My FI's family is all here or in Ontario... so to be fair, we wanted neutral ground. But it's definitely not that common.

I got my big stash of stuff from VS already! Very quick shipping, which was good too bad I only like about half of the stuff I ordered. That's why I hate ordering clothes online! I only liked one of the three dresses that I bought. Bummer! And still deciding on the suit.

 

Brooke and Chris- Did you guys get your suit yet? If so, how was it?

Raykel you look gorgeous! And your waist IS super tiny!! I hope I can look like that in my dress! WOW!

Sue - sorry to hear that you are not feeling well! I hope you get better soon! Where are you from in Newfoundland? I was born in Gander, my grandparents and my mom and her siblings grew up in Campbellton (near Lewisporte), which is where I was until I was 2 years old. I'm so excited for the wedding cause all my aunts, uncles, and cousins are coming (all newfies too..lol) so it should be interesting to see how the FI's family reacts...lol...my MIL is definitely conservative, and I worry a little bit about how uncomfortable she may be as my family is definitely NOT conservative at all....loud and rowdy is more like it!

Tricia - sorry to hear about your package! sad.gif I hate when that happens! That's one of the reasons I hate online shopping - I wish we had a VS store here that I could just go to!

Welcome to the forum Carly! I hope you can get some good advice and support here! :)

Are you ladies excited for Christmas? I'm excited, but worried about Christmas with the inlaws - SIL is causing some grief for me, being rude, etc....and I'm afraid Christmas will be a little uncomfortable - if I say something or if I don't, either way I'll be uncomfortable...ugh...

Hi Sue - looks like you are from pretty close to Gander too! Man it's a small world hey?!! I'm glad you were able to get back home for a bit. I haven't been back home for about 8 years - last time was for my poppy's funeral. So sad, but it was a great chance to reconnect with all my relatives (my mom has 7 brothers and sisters)! It is such a beautiful place and I hope to take my FI out there soon.

 

As for the wedding - my mom has requested that we play at least a few newfie songs...my FI asked if we could compromise and just play Great Big Sea - I laughed at him...lol...I told him he will just have to put up with it! :)

So I just emailed my WC AGAIN. This time we have approval for the date and time so all is a go. Okay so I'm a little disappointed because I got - you can pick whatever kind of flowers you want (she sent 3 samples as examples), attached a spa price list and then asked if we had any music we wanted or if you wanted to pick from their 2 cds. And that was it!! Now there is only one place for the wedding to take place so there's no discussion there, but can you guys tell me what else you're setting up with your WC. I feel so uninformed!! fryingpan.gif

    • 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.
