Any 2011 Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

welcome back Mexbride!

It must be weird (eye-opening) experience to goto an underfed country when you are from an overfed country!

Nice shoes! and BM dresses!  I will wait for the Spring when everyone is done with their ho ho ho holiday weight gain and loss before getting the bridal party outfits!  I learnt that from my friend who got an overfed BM who couldnt zip up her BM dress 2 weeks before the weddingoops.gif!

Haha that poor girl! I'm not too worried about my bridesmaids, they've all pretty much been the same size for all the years I've known them. Their weights don't really fluctuate. Except my MOH who is 8 months pregnant right now! But she just got a huge size and is having it altered in the spring. Malawi was an incredible experience. Though I work in international nutrition, so I've been to many developing countries and have seen the worst many times, unfortunately:( I love what I do though, and always feel a great sense of accomplishment at the end of a contract!

 

 

DiamondGirl - Thank you! So do I:) I wear them around the house all the time hahaha.

Hi everyone!

 

I've been a member (and huge fan) of this forum for about a year now, and I figured it was time to actually say "hi!"  I'm getting married on February 5, 2011 at The Royal PDC...definitely coming up, and I still can't believe it!  

 

It IS impossible to lose any weight right now!  I'm just hoping I can get really serious about dieting in January right before the wedding.  I only want to lose another 5 pounds or so (assuming I don't GAIN anything in the next couple of weeks! =P), so I'm hoping that I can pull it off.  

 

Nice to "meet" you all!

 

~Sarah

Mexbride,

 

it always feels great when u are doing smth that can make a difference!

 

Smille50,

You should ask Mexbride, since she is an expert in nutrition.  You are right! Holiday is a challenge, I am in charge of the food this year, when I look at the menu...errrr...it doesn't look like anything for anyone who wants to be on diet! lol.  Except for my mom, everyone in my family are under-weight, so we tend eat until we get bellied up! lol

I can give plenty of good dieting advice, but as I write it I would be on my 30th snickerdoodle cookie of the day haha. Even nutritionists can't resist holiday treats!! My best advice during the holidays is to just work out more. I've increased my workouts to feel better about the increase in yummy food I've been taking in.

Oh, and a very interesting fact for all of you... my thesis research is on breakfast, and there is overwhelming proof that people who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight! Your metabolism doesn't really kick in until you eat. So if you wait till noon to eat, you've missed out on hours of calorie burning that would happen if you just ate something. There is also overwhelming evidence of breakfast consumption increasing short-term memory, attention, and overall mood (note: these effects occur only if you have complex carbs for breakfast - so eat high-fiber cereal, whole wheat toast, or something along those lines). So everyone should make sure they never miss breakfast!:)

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
