Just under a month and everything is starting to get to me!

Recommended Posts

I just need to get this stuff out.

 

I invited a few single people - women - that are SINGLE, like not dating anyone. my 2 friends are sharing a room. My one friend who is married - her husband can't come and she told me she's bringing her friend and said "obviously she won't be at the wedding".

FI's single friend is bringing her aunt. i understand that it's cheaper for double occupancy. And i have actually met the aunt. but when I sent out a note last night to get a count on entrees, she responded

"i will have shrimp and my aunt will have chicken"

What? I didn't invite her with a guest...FI told me not to worry about it but seriously, it's not right...

 

FI needs to give me a copy of his divorce decree to fax to the WC. Or fax it himself. He doesn't understand why they need to know he's been divorced. I don't know, but they already do, so just give me the papers or fax them over...mine are already over there...just do it please.

 

 

I'm also starting to freak out about not having decorations for the tables at the reception....and I was trying to save money by not buying extra flowers...so now i'm trying to figure out a cheap but pretty thing to do, that can be easily flown to Jamaica, along with my OOT bags....

 

And i am spending extra money on a cocktail hour on the beach, because although the wedding is at an all inclusive resort, they have found a way to charge me for food and drinks for this wedding.....smile105.gif

 

i need a massage!

breath in and breath out :)

 

I think all of us have our bursts of stress. I told my fiance the other day in one of my not so level headed moments that I wish we had just gone to city hall, and i think the whole wedding is a stupid idea. Of course he knew that i did not mean it and it sort of blew over but still.....I wanted a destination wedding b.c i thought it would be less stressful, think i missed the boat on that one. With our budget blown through the roof i can relate on your issue with regards to the floral aspect of the wedding.

So I am either just going to say screw it and get go for the flowers i want or come up with an alternative.

I am having paper lanterns at my wedding so i thought maybe a few smaller ones on the tables could give an interesting ambiance,and they are easy to ship, but who knows really :)

 

 

Just keep smiling, and remember it will beautiful:)

Ok breathhhhhh ahhhhhhh

Now wot you need to do to make sure everything gets done is to break it down into smaller chunks.

H2b!!!! fax the papers yourself im sure that is just causing more grief than anything else.Hes not doing it you cant be married without it he seems uninterested your doing everything lalalalallalala

Once thats done the pressure is off

Send the papers then tell him you did it and get him to make dinner!!!

All you need for decorations are a very few things.

Tea lites in your colours cheap ones ikea thats where mine are from.

If you seat all your guests on one long table as i am doing you could take three fish bowls some lights that work under water and three stems of artificial flowers to place inside.One at each end and one in the middle.

Scatter some flower petals wallahhhhh done

shopping list 3 x fish bowls, 12 x tea lite holders 3 x artificial stems

Im wanting to do starfish as placecards

Really you dont need to spend loads keep it all on one table and you dont need to do as many repeats.

Youll be fine get him to cook the dinner lol xxx

JerseyKitten, I hear you loud and clear!! I am 33 days from the wedding and every little thing makes me feel like I am on the edge of going from Zilla to a full-fledged Bridezilla! Thankfully, FI is staying calm and helps to calm me down. Deep breaths and remember it's all going to work out :)

He promised me we would do the IPOD playlists tomorrow....we need like 5 hours of music.

I had my fitting today and my mom annoyed the you know what out of me, which is why there is no photo of mesmile27.gif

How frustrating! Just take deep breaths! You don't need fancy decorations. Just put some candles and scatter flower petals on the tables around them. As for the extra aunt...if you feel that you can talk to your friend about it, do, but if not, just let it go. Don't let the stress get to you!

focus on the positive things...

 

in a month you are going to marry your true love, surrounded by friends & family in a beautiful location

 

no one is going to focus on if you don't have extra decor for the tables, or OOT bags, or if an extra guest is there.

 

keep your budget in mind, spend money on the things you NEED to have, not the things you want.

 

oh...and get a massage, you deserve one.

Oh my dear,

I know what you are feeling! We leave in two weeks. I am a teacher and we are in the midst of writing report cards, I haven't picked up my wedding dress yet, I just got an email that one of our guests is bailing b/c of work, my FMIL is driving me nuts with little nitpicky things I don't care about or need to here about, and my mom is getting all nutty too! What's the deal?!

 

As for your decor, don't worry about it too much. Go simple. I am bringing tea lights, as mentioned before, and little glass marbles in my colors. Other than that we are getting the flowers that come with the package and I'm bringing a few paper lanterns.

 

As for OOT bags, can you send some of the items down with your guests? My aunt and uncle are going to the resort a week before us, they have 2x the luggage allotment we have, so I am sending a suitcase full with them.

 

Like someone mentioned before, one thing at a time... for me, it's getting these %&$# report cards done and off my mind!

 

Take care!

 

p.s. I'm so with you on the massage idea!

FI keeps saying all these things to me...but I will know.

I'm going to try to pack the OOT bag stuff in a suitcase this weekend and see how they fit - i do have friends that will take things for me. it must be hard trying to concentrate on doing report cards...i'd be like "everyone get's an A"! I just started a new job last week so I think that might add to my stress...

Thanks for listening ladies...it helps so much!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
