    Nicdeb, all I have heard for the last few weeks is how I took the "easy road" by having a destination wedding, so much so that the last person that said it to me I just smiled and looked at her and said "who wouldn't want to plan a wedding somewhere they've never been, with planners and vendors they've never met and coordinating everything over the phone or through e-mails with no clear sight as to how it will all come together, not to mention getting all my guests there safely and making sure its up to standard and having a wonderful day. With something that easy who wouldn't want a destination wedding?" She just looked at me stunned, then she realized I was being sarcastic. PEOPLE!

    So ladies I am happy to report tonight is our AHR/Shower at the Four Seasons. I haven't had to lift a finger because some very very dear friends of ours are hosting the event but I am still nervous. Its the first chance to see everyone before the wedding all in one place. I bought three dresses from BeBe yesterday cause I couldn't decide which one to wear. I am going to start packing my second suitcase this weekend. 

     

    Things still left to do.....guestbook.....any one have any ideas? I wanted to do something non-traditional.

    Petal cones (I am making my own)

    Groom/Groomsmen ties

     

    Thats it!!! I can't believe I have everything else done!!! Wooohoooo. I printed my programs and menus this week and took pics of everything in preparation for my planning journal. I have 29 days to review everything and hopefully figure out if I forgot anything. 

     

    Have a wonderful FRIDAY mis amigas lindas!!! 


    Hi, I ordered our guestbook from the guestbook store on line. They are really different and non-traditional. The website is: www.guestbookstore.com

     

    Try the website, they are really cute! Wow! Congrats on having everything else finished (well other than those 3 things) that is amazing. I still have to finish the oot bags, I did my boudior photo shoot today. That was soooo fun. i have to finish putting together the wedding partys gifts, and i have no idea what to get my parents still... We leave in 35 days... I have nothing packed. in fact we dont even have luggage yet!

    But despite that I am very calm about it all. haha!

        Hi Ladies!!!!!!

         

        Loua4 thanks for the tip I think I will be using the guestbookstore as well. I like their guest book.

         

        MysTea my Shower/AHR was perfect!!! I couldn't have asked for a better night. The weather was perfect,  the view/scenery was absolutely perfect, the food was delicious and everyone had such a spectacular time!!! I had one too many glasses of champagne so on Saturday I had a slow start, but I indulged because for my wedding I intend on only drinking water. This week I want to order my guest book and find the ties. 

         

        I'm gonna just wrap up those last three things this week and I am ready to go!!!!!!!! I know I will only be on sporadically but I will check in on you ladies!!

          Janine, glad your AHR went so well. 

          MysTea, it's coming fast! Good luck with your dress, I am sure it will fit like a dream :) The weather will be great....I am sending positive vibes from here!

          Loua4, I still have to get more luggage too. I don't know why I are procrastinating on so many things.

          This week I am going to try to get the rest of everything done, and then my shower and stagette this weekend 

           

          Oh yes..... Friday is my legal day too  I told FI that this way I will get 2 anniversary gifts/dinners a year!

           

          Have a great week ladies!!! Have fun, get lots done, and stay relaxed!!

            Hi all! My wedding day is 38 days away!!  Everything seems to be coming together though.

             

            Things done:

            All travel arrangements have been paid.

            FI suit bought and tailored.

            FI ring bought

            My band has been ordered

            OOT bags

            Buri Fans

             

            To do:

            Monogram OOT bags

            menu cards

            Final fitting for dress

             

            One question . . . .I need help with figuring out how to get my dress on the plane. Is anyone going to just try and see if they can get the flight attendant to hang it up or put it in a suitcase??

             

            Thanks!!

             

            Monica

              I am taking my dress on board with me and going to see if the flight attendants will put it in the closet. I refuse to put it in my suitcase. We are flying on the last flight at night so I am hoping that I am the only bride on my flight and that the flight attendants are nice enough to allow me to hang it up front in the closet.

                      Just checking in! My sister leaves in 6 days and I wanted to see if she is on track and ready to go! MysTea where you at? Hope you have put the finishing touches on everything, are relaxing and not stressing over anything and ready to kick back and celebrate a hell-of-a good time!!! You leave in 6 days honey! I know your day is gonna be fab!!! 

                       

                      Mimi73 enjoy your stagette this weekend.....I know you will!! Remember to post some pics for us! And Happy Legal Day tomorrow!!!!!!

                       

                      Nicdeb928 my long lost friend, I don't know where you have been but I know you must be adding the finishing touches on things as well since your wedding is coming up soon (I think if I remember correctly its the weekend before mine....but the Friday....Nov.5th). Hard to keep track with so many lovely ladies with their weddings in one month. Nicdeb928 good luck....pop by and let us know how things are going if you are around.

                       

                      All November brides hang in there....we are nearly all to the altar and I for once am beginning to get excited!!!
