Woodsylou- I have the same date as you!! How are you holding up? I am stressing a bit but I am feeling better now that my OOT bags are done. Those were a lot of work! Whew! I pick up my dress today! I left the alterations for as long as I could because I was losing alot of weight (thank goodness).

Are you all ready? What do you have left to do?

I think I just need to get ready for the trip now - the wedding stuff is all done (I think).

12 days now !!!!! :) :) :)

AJ - Yah, those OOt bags were something. I was buying things for it for months. I also made little tags for each little bag inside (To have and to hold, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, to love and to cherish).

My FI did read about the mosquitos today on the palladiumaddicts site. I will have to go and get some extra spray. we went to GP last July and we didnt have any but I guess there are some there now. Better to be safe than sorry.

Since February (when I ordered my dress) I have lost almost 30 pounds. It was hard but it was worth it. I didnt want to have any regrets when I looked at my pictures. I am 41 years old too (my 2nd wedding- the right one, this time) so it was even harder to lose. My metabolism isnt what it used to be and working out was not easy...

When I went to try on my dress for the last fitting she had to take it in over 2 1/2 inches (and when I ordered it , it was 1 size too small) Yay!

Woodsylou - I saw how great you look on your planning thread. Good for you!

Well, I will be here if you 2 (my date twins ) want to chat - and anyone else LOL :)

wow! 30lbs well done! that's an amazing achievement! how have you done it?


i don't know how bad the mosquitos are, but always best to be prepared. we use some stuff called Mossi Milk (I think) which is meant to be good. it needs to have a high concentrate of Deet.

what are you doing for your OOT bags? x
We've been to Aruba a few times and love it!! We are getting married on Renaissance Island and I can't wait!!
My Bachelorette party was actually on a "Murder Mystery Cruise" out of Boston. It was a blast!!

My OOT bags have a wedding week survival kit/hangover kit, pasmina's, sunglasses, playing cards, flip flops, a welcome book, bookmarks that we made and a welcome book. Once I finish them I'll do a planning thread with all the pics. I felt like I've been cutting and putting them together forever!! haha

    • 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.
