    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!!!


      Looking to share a photographer the middle of Feb 2011 in Holguin Cuba

        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!

            ..in other news, for those gals who got the Bikram Yoga special, FI and i started on Monday and we are loving it.  the first two classes were horrific torture, but today was the third and now we are hooked.  the people are all so nice there. :)

              Ok I just got my TTD earings and I am already rethinking them

              I am now thinking they are too blingy - I dont normally wear anything blingy so kinda odd that I bought those in hindsight -  thoughts?

                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!

                      I agree, those earrings are great and will look fantastic in pictures!  I dont think they are too blingy either... just the right amount of bling for TTD pics :)
