My FI's aunt invited her friend (or the friend invited herself, still not clear) without telling us. The woman already bought her ticket and everything. Now I find out that two more people are coming and have bought tickets although there was no mention of them coming before (not even we might come) and they never responded to the RSVP. Sheesh! Managing the guest list has by far been the most stressful aspect of planning this wedding. Sorry. Just need to vent.
I think all of us have experienced something like this to a degree. I had a lot of people fall off at the last second (bridesmaidS and groomsmen) and one come that I didn't want to come... literally just booked and I am making my MOH's husband be his babysitter... how sad... he is a drinker if you know what I mean.

Meli, that really sucks! I think we all can relate to the rudeness. What is up with people?! I agree - that's definitely the most stressful part!

 

1 week til MX! Yay Shannon!!

 

Who else do we have on the 1st?

Wow - 3 hours of hair Amy! How great you got to try out 3 styles! Did you decide on one or will you just show the pics to the stylist & see what they come up with? Or is your friend doing your actual wedding-day hair?

 

I'm really thinking I should do a hair trial now.

We did decide on one! I brought her that inspiration board of photos to see what she felt like doing. The first looked good and I liked it but the 3rd is what really got me so it was nice to compare. My hair stylist is actually my friend and I invited her to my wedding and she accepted and offered to do my hair.

Do you know what you want to be done to your hair? I would suggest a trial just to make sure once it's done it's what you want.

Do you know

Karen,

 

Did you upload the pics from Jen from the Zip file? Is that how you are doing the book, or is it a book that you will insert the pics in? I have a 5x7 album but didn't realize and ordered the 4X6s prints. So I just made a border on the picture. It was a self-adhesive page, so the pages are thick - 10 pages, 20 pictures. He better like it ;-) lol

Thanks Shannon, looks great!!!

Maybe this is where I'm trying to figure out if I need one. I made a brochure to mail to guests the week before we all leave with literally all this information sans the events. We're sticking the wedding day timeline info in their OOT bag because I honestly don't think anyone will remember unless it's in their face.

So I think I actually don't need a letter, I think a timeline should do just fine. I'm meeting everyone in the lobby with their OOT bags anyways.

    • 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?
