Oh boy...the girls have asked me to come up with a guest list for a shower later in January. So I went through the guest list and ended up with 60 people! So I edited that list and I am still over 40....um isn't that crazy! I was thinking it should be about 20, but with the amount of close family and friends my FI and I have collected over the years (some of us have been friends since we were 5 years old) how the heck to I narrow that list down and not hurt people's feelings? How many people did you guys have at your showers?

I am not having a shower, I have asked that there not be one.. However in your case why do you need to limit who is invited? I think you should ask who you want and who you know that would love the opportunity to wish you well. I grew up with showers being something that is was an honor to be invited and people thought they were special to have the opportunity to wish a bride well in her new life . I first wedding I had a shower hosted by my ex sister inlaw there was 150 people... I was blown away....

Have you considered having separate ones for different groups...ex: friends and family at different ones. The only problem I see with that many is that it could be a little overwhelming for the person throwing it. My friend recently offered to throw a baby shower for another one of our friends and the list she gave had 65 people! After a minor panic attack she decided to recruit a couple of us to help her with it. With three of us it was no big deal, but if there's only one or two people it could get kind of pricey for food, drinks, decorations, ect. If there's several girls go for it!

That is what my mom suggested too....having two, even on the same weekend with mostly friends at one and then family at a second....I am going to talk to the FMIL and get some suggestions from her on who to invite from their side. She may think I am inviting more from their side than I need to as well.

 

If we did invite everyone on the same day where on earth would we have it? My mom has suggested the community hall, but then it just seems so much bigger and I am worried about it costing the girls a ton of cash.

 

I have a few more days to come up with the guest list, so I will keep playing with it.....It would be nice to ask them all....It was the same when I was growing up Susie....when mom got invited to one she always asked if I could come because it was such a big deal to be included and get to have a "girls event" before the wedding.

Morning lovely ladies,

It is -22 here this morning and a couple inches of snow. I have to head out shortly for work... brrrrrrrrrrrrr

Shells I leave in 29 days the 27th of Jan. Getting a little hysterical is the only words i can use to discribe my excitement. -22 temperatures does have a way of making this feeling intensify.... Oh my brother is booking today "ALONE"...

Have a great day ladies....

guys need your advise.as you know our 2 best friends (a married couple)are coming with us.i want to let them know how much we appreciate them coming when we first got engaged they knew we wanted a dw wedding and they said whatever wherever they want to come.they have paid £3800 which is a lot of money and i was wondering what i could do in return.i have booked/paid for spa treatments for the wedding morning and i was thinking i want to do the catermaran trip the day before the wedding so maybe could pay for that as well.

 

would that be enough or can you guys think of something different?

Shells I think that's plenty. Don't forget they are getting a vacation out of it too.

 

Susie - your stories are great. Sorry you had to deal with the crazy lady at Christmas, but you're always going to have the story to make fun of your brother with.

    • 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?
