Ok that wasn't awesomely wrote but you get the idea... she'll either be happy she doesn't have to do it, or she'll press on with '' no no no, really I WANT to do it,'' in that case you're screwed, LOL jk. You have to do what you are comfortable with on your wedding day and she will understand. I don't see how she could be offended. My friend wasn't. She was relieved... she didn't want the pressure of ruining my hair. With the humidity and stuff down there, she was unsure of how my hair would react and wasn't comfortable doing it in the end.

Plus you also have the excuse of wanting to be at the salon with everyone else! Don't be afraid... do what you want to do!! :)
Thanks for the great advice svetayasofiya!

Okay, not to freak you out BUT.....

99 Days!!! You are at double digits.... ahhhhhhh!!!!! J/K

I feel terrible tonight you guys... have y'all got your flowers all sorted out? Do you know where your reception with be or rehearsal dinner time/place? Do you have any idea of what the cost will be on the day. The WC at our resort has not been returning calls/emails and none of this is set up and 2 days ago I got pissed and told my TA who called her sup and now I just feel like a huge old pain in the ass. Am I a jerk for being concerned about this??

Aww I am sorry that you are feeling down. You should not feel like a jerk for wanting to have things finalized so close to your big day. The WC should feel like the jerk for not doing her job!

I had the same problem in the beginning of the planning process. It seems that there is a team of WC at most of the resorts. I called after having none of my emails or phone calls returned (for 3 weeks straight) and I was connected to another coordinator after letting the person who answered the phone know that I was trying to plan a wedding at the resort, but I had not been successful. THey changed my coordinator and it has been wonderful ever since. I say all tht to say maybe you can call and find out if there is someone else who could help you. You never know you could greatly reduce your stress level with one phone call.

Hey Shells, Glad to hear FI got a new job.

 

Futuremrsgoodrich, I agree with vdaybride, you just want answers and it is a stressful time with the holidays just around the corner. I would be pissed too, it has to go into the budget and it is just a couple months away. I totally would be freaking out and demanding a price list and some pictures.

 

Sorry is 3am here "Sue" isn't sleeping, I read the post about the friend wanting to do the brides hair the day of the wedding (sorry I forget which lovely bride this is) I think I'd be worried about her and her baby and she being able to focus that day. Just tell her I am sorry I just need you there as my friend and not to be worrying about my hair.

 

I had another fitting on my dress tonite "forgot my camera". my FMIL probably wouldn't have been able to work it anyway. the dress is looking great and should be ready next week. I am very excited.

 

I also talked to FMIL about the fur coat and explained how I was feeling about owning something so beautiful and accepting something so expensive the I know I'll never wear.

She was really good about it, and was totally ok with the thanks but no thanks. So guess what? In two weeks we're going shopping for a dress for her (not sure where with all the winter stuff being out) and we're going shopping for diamond ear rings. She really liked that idea.

So no worries about a paint can being thrown at me for wearing a fur coat, I will just sparkle and a sparkle looks good even if your wearing jeans and a t shirt. Very happy girl here.

I should try to go back to bed... nite chickies

Hey SusieQ!!!

The "hair" bride is ME... I think I will let her down gently and use the salon at my resort for my hair. I think she should understand.

Another fitting.. yayyy!!!! Was your dress hanging in the window like last time, ready to greet you? Hee-hee. That is so exciting!!! I can't wait until it is hanging in your closet!!!

That's great that the FMIL understands the issue on the fur coat. Diamond Earrings... you are sooooo lucky! What kind will you get? Studs? Drop? Chandelier? Come on you have to have some kind of idea?!?!?

Okay... Good night girls!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
