May 2010 Brides!
Posted 17 May 2010 - 05:22 PM
I am so excited for you both!! Are you girls ready? Listen to all the advice past brides have given you... I kept these little tidbits of info with me the whole time and it helped.
Some not so glamorous advice... I had a bride friend suggest taking some Tylenol PM the night before the wedding to get a good nights rest. I am the epidome of "too excited to sleep" so I took this and got a solid 8 hours of rest and felt fresh and energized all day long on my wedding, some of the best advice I've ever gotten.
Another piece of advice was to not lose track of hubby for too long. I go to parties and social events with him and we basically arrive together and leave together and thats it so remembering to break that habit on my wedding day was something I was so grateful for.
Also, no matter what. Do not worry about ANYONE else except you and your soon to be husband on your wedding day. My wedding day was EXTREMELY stressful leading up to the ceremony. Just sit back, get ready and don't freak out. Don't worry about anyone but yourself all night long and you'll be fine.

I'm so sorry you were so stressed the day of the wedding! I can empathize since I'm always worried about everyone else. I'll really try to take this piece of advice to heart & just relax! Some champagne should help with that too
Di, not too much left to do, what about you?
Still have to finish the vows (Amy I keep thinking of you when I sit down to write them). Also have to wrap the BM jewelry & get their stuff all in one place. I'm stamping craft paper bags with their names on them, then when we get down there I'll throw in all the goodies & put tissue paper on top.
Mail's already set to be on hold, passports are accounted for & travel doc's printed.
Tomorrow I'm getting my ring cleaned, then a wax & pedicure on Thurs. Fri is our legal day and then this weekend we have to pack.
We finished our ceremony and most of our reception music yesterday. Ooh, that reminds me - do you girls have any good music suggestions?
I'll post what we have so far, but I think we need more just in case.

A good strong margarita buzz, tv off and me by myself zoomed me through my vows. They were written in like 10 minutes no joke, 4 paragraphs I cut down to 3 right at the last second. Everyone told me that my vows were amazing and brought everyone to tears... it's amazing what a little alcohol can do to release that inner sap/romantic.
You sound ready to go!!
Haha well this is why I freaked wedding day before the ceremony. Friday actually forgot to put sunscreen on my face... I burn especially in that heat and I got to my room to shower and get ready for the rehersal dinner and see my face all burnt. Nose red, forehead red with a nice little white shape of sunglasses over my eyes. I had a freaking meltdown... I started doing my makeup and I had so much different coverup on it started caking so I had to wash my face and start over which made it more red and this is on my wedding day. So my girls took me on the patio, handed me champagne and a cigarette, put a wet cloth on my face and just changed the subject. I calmed down after that and my MOH actually found some green red reducing makeup that saved the day and my face. I just can't believe I did that... oh man, I worked out but wow what a heart attack.

Extra sunblock is on my list for tomorrow (and aloe). I'll add some green redness-reducing makeup as well!
Thanks so much, I just pm'd you.

Tonight made sure everything got printed out & organized into folders. Also made a big receipt for most of the OOT bag stuff & put a line at the end stating *These items are for our wedding guests, not for resale* (*Estos artculos son para personas de nuestra boda, no para su reventa*)
No panicking! Just take one day at a time & keep whittling down the list
Happy Wedding Day Chantelle! (TillyintheSun) Have a wonderful wonderful day!!
