Hi,

 

 We are getting married Feb 2012 at Dreams Puerto Vallarta. We are using Dazzling Details as our wedding coordinator (They are amazing!!!!!) I just love this site, it is so nice to have a place to get info on everything you could think of. I have just started planning and I am having so much fun. I just went wedding dress shopping today for the first time, so much fun. We went to Mena's, I just loved this place, they were so nice and good prices. I was expecting to pay around $1500-2000 and the dress I liked was only $550....SWEET!!! Still not sure if it's "The Dress" but it is definitely one to revisit.

 

Thanks to everyone for all the great info and ideas! :)

Hi Girls

 

I hope everyone had a great weekend :)  I had my bridal shower on Sat, I know it's early but I had a lot of people traveling and didn't want to chance it later in the winter.  Anyways besides all the great gifts that I got I had to tell you guys about what one of my bridesmaids got me.  It's a gift certificate for I'm a Mrs, it's a website that helps you make your name change after you get married www.imamrs.com I've never heard of it but thought it was a fantastic idea.

 

Have a great week!!!

lol that's hilarious! People will try and make a business out of ANYTHING! I don't know how comfortable I'd be letting anyone but myself handle the paperwork on my own name change...

Pam that sounds fantastic!  When are you planning to do your order through Bongo?  Would love to hear what you think afterwards... its sounding like a good option for our mugs.  $250 in shipping is a little too crazy for my liking

I came across something yesterday that I had NO IDEA existed!  It is called BONGO, and its is a service that gives you an American mailing address for those companies that don't ship to Canada.  They then will ship it to you.  There are different costs depending on how many shipments you think you will need, but I think there was one option for a one month rental for $5 (plus shipping from there, of course).  We think we are going to do this for the groomsmen gifts...I will let you know how it goes!

Those are your TTD earrings! Gorgeous! Wear them!

 

I don't typically walk around in big white dress with a photographer following me around either, but I did on my wedding day! Anything goes!

Thats exactly what my bridesmaid told me when I asked her if the veil I like was me. She told me wearing a big white dress isn't you either so it didn't really matter.

I say wear the earrings they are beautiful and will be amazing for your TTD pics.

lol. Best. Response. EVER.

 

So, so true. If only it were the case! I wish I could have someone do my hair, makeup and follow me around taking gorgeous photos all day!

 

It's very true. Anything goes when you're the bride!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
