This one is for the Bestman and Groomsman
The ones with the shells are for FFIL and Step-father; the ones without shells are for my brother and FI's BIL. I have to make one more for our Jr. Usher.

Rayanne -- hope things work out. You could always do the legal stuff in AB first; that's what FI and I did, just to make it easier. We got a temporary copy of our certificate for our records, then I'll apply for our own copy when we return from Mexico. It stinks that you even have to worry about this. I wouldn't be thrilled with the FBIL, either.

I'm so excited, only 5 more sleeps until we leave! I picked up my dress on Thursday and I am so happy with it. The seamstress did a fabulous job on the alterations. I also got my hair cut and coloured on Thursday. Last night was the stagette -- woo hoo! I managed to still function today despite the drinking last night, which was good, as I picked up a bunch of little things I needed for Mexico. And a bigger suitcase
Back to my tasks for tonight -- finishing our playlist and doing thank-you cards for our vendors.

Ok Time for me to Rant-- 1)So you've all heard my bridesmaid drama where she got mad at me for trying to help her and then stopped talking to me until I stop being a bridezilla. I all along knew that the biggest reason for it was her money issues. I just saw on facebook that she is in Las Vegas this weekend!!! WTF?!?!? You don't have money to go to Cancun for one of your formly closest friend's wedding, but 3 weeks before go to Vegas... Lovely
2) We had invited some of my FI's friends to our wedding and the got engaged in December. So they decided to get married in the Mayan Rivera in October and we were super excited for them. My FI says to his friend at my fi's bach party "Dude, Brooke and I are pretty excited that we will be going back to Mexico for you wedding" His friend "Ohhh umm... we were only inviting a limited number of friends" OUCH... so now for the double ouch-- they are right now in the Mayan Rivera to check out their wedding site. REALLY?!? REALLY?? You didn't even know that you were getting married in Dec, you've had an invite to our wedding since Oct-- and instead of planning it so you could go to our wedding and check out your wedding venue... you just book it 3 weeks before! I am so ready to write them off as our friends all together for both senarios. What is all of your input? Am I being a bridezilla or do I have a right to be hurt in the situations?

Second one...ouch. That is hard telling you they are only inviting a limited number of people, but I guess it is their day. But to go down and do a site inspection 3 weeks before your wedding. That is kinda...rude. That just isn't the right word. Even if they could not afford to go to your resort they could have talked to you and tried to make arrangements to come for the day.
I don't think you are being a bridezilla. I am not usually a selfish person but I think this is the one day in our lives we can be a bit selfish and expect a bit more from people. Maybe that is the problem....counting on some people we think of as friends just leads to disappointment. Try to ignore them and don't let this spoil your day.....and it is probably a bit mean, but odds are what goes around comes around...maybe in 6 months someone will treat them just as well and they will see how it feels. Small petty consolation...
We are all going to have our days and they will be wonderful - without any of these people that are making us all crazy. Like we all keep telling each other - do not let them ruin this for you at all. They don't want to come - their loss.
