June 2010 Brides!


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I noticed every month in 2010 seems to have its own "support" thread except June 2010, so I thought I should remedy this. Just want to know how everyone's planning is going, I am getting so excited - it's crazy how fast the last year has gone.

 

Hope to hear from others soon - it seems like June is a pretty uncommon month for weddings, it's ok with me - less will be going on at our resort when we are there :).

Congrats on getting your invites out, have you chosen your dress yet? I have mine waiting for me at the bridal salon - can't wait to get alterations (they told me to wait until about 1-2 months before to get the final sizing done).

 

Has your FI decided what he's going wear?

Hi, I am a June bride as well. Probably not my first choice in months but working in the schools you don't get to choose your vacations and I really wanted to be able to relax and enjoy the wedding without worrying about getting back to work. I can't believe only 5 months left. The time has flown and there is still so much to do. So where are you guys in the planning stage (not sure if I really want to know so I freak out that I don't have anything ready). Good luck with everything and keep me updated on your progress.

Hey everyone,

 

I did notice that there wasn't a June board too! Thanks for creating one... But I think we're all in the invitations/getting our dresses mode. I have my dress but will wait a little longer to get alterations. I'm planning on taking care of getting invitations printed within the next few days.

Same here, I'm in medical school (so his my FI) so we didn't have much choice, I finish school on May 21 and we leave a week after. Here's hoping for great weather :).

I actually sent out invites a long time ago, in early fall - but that's just because I didn't do STDs. I have been engaged since last Christmas though, so I have had awhile to do everything.

We have the BM dresses, my dress, flowers all ready to go. I have also purchased BM gifts (mostly). I made a guestbook using our engagement photos...My biggest concern right now is trying to nail down a definite number so I can work on my favors and such. I also plan to do a few DIY projects but I'm going to rely a lot on what the resort provides.

Hello fellow June brides. I too am getting married in June at the Dreams Resort in Cancun. June 8th is the wedding day. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.

 

I have been working on the OOT bags, sent out our STD's (we aren't doing formal invites in addition to the STD's), guestbook has been started, welcome books, bookmarks, pre-travel brochures, pre-travel CD's and luggage tags will be sent out to those that have booked already this week.

 

I feel like there is sooo much more to do and time is going to go so fast! I can't wait! I look forward to hearing from the rest of you as the time gets closer!

Ha ha. Reading all the posts makes me feel alternately calm because I'm at the same stage as others, but then nervous for being behind.

 

I'm glad to be finished with the invitations, but we've already been talking to a lot of our guests since we plan on booking their airline and hotel ourselves.

 

We're pretty non-traditional and not too worried about a lot of the details. Luckily, I do have my dress, but only because it's something I already had in my closet. I've known for a long time that I didn't want to wear a traditional wedding gown. I just need to have it taken in slightly.

 

FI will be wearing khaki shorts and ivory button down, short sleeve shirt, but we have to wait until warm weather clothes show up in the stores here in the Mid-Atlantic U.S. Same for girls' shopping trip with my sister (BM), my mom and FMIL.

 

I've been working on collecting ideas for our ceremony script (FI's longtime friend will be officiating) and for OOT bags.

 

I think the next thing will be to start thinking about rings.

 

I'm so impressed with some of your DIY lists. I just barely managed to do the invitations without losing my sanity ;-)

Thanks sjmacphe for starting this thread!

 

I'm getting married on June 12 at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum in Mexico... I cannot wait! June is definitely not my first choice either because oddly I can't stand to be hot! But being from Wisconsin I'd definitely take it over the snow/cold we've got going on right now.

 

I've got my dress and am working on getting my invites out... they're DIY so I'm about half way done... really need to get them out in the next week or 2.

 

FI and I jsut went shopping to pick out his outfit this past weekend... he's wearing a plain white oxford with a tan dress pant... will probably roll the sleeves.. he's also going to wear a fuschia/orange tie if I can find one. We also went ring shopping for his band... and found one that he likes and it's a steal - so I'm really happy about that!

 

Next on my list is the OOT bags... even the thought of that is overwhelming... but exciting too!

 

June can't come quick enough but will be here before we all know it!! YEAH!

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions.
