Tris , I'm sorry that your friend is denying the inevitable and not responding. I think that would probably hurt the most especially when you seem so close. I know you weren't really thinking she would be able to attend, but she should have tried to at least be supportive.

 

Lisa, I hope you're not too tired today after being up so late last night. I know some of that stuff can be addictive. I can't wait to see the changes you made.

 

If anyone else wants the publisher template for my labels, let me know and I can post it here.

Wow, it seems like all of us are having some sort of problems...  thankfully mine have been relatively minor in the whole picture compared to some of the other ladies out there.  Tris, I'm so sorry to hear about your situation.  There is nothing good about it and it stinks because your friend is so far away that you can't really talk to her outside of email or facebook....  I hope she can at least acknowledge the email...  I don't even know what else to say....

Francine -- I LOVE your dress! :)

 

Invite problem solved. FI is totally on my side - thank goodness! and agrees that we're only going to add "saturday" with the date, our phone # with the rsvp and then instead of 5-10pm... something like "cocktails at 5pm followed by dinner at 7pm" ... there was also a part about it being in the lower level of the hall that FMIL wanted me to include but we're going to include a map to the location anyway so we're just going to mention lower hall on the map. :) FMIL doesn't know about our changes and she's not going to until she gets it in the mail, and that's that!!! :) haha

 

 

OH! and it only took 4 weeks, but my key card holders FINALLY arrived from Hong Kong!!!!! :)  now I just need to make and print off the inserts (i snagged some avery badge paper from my office so i won't have to worry about cutting them out - score!)

 

 

I also started sewing my rehersal/AHR dress last night!!! It's pretty daunting so far and I can't see how the little pieces are going to become a dress, but I'm staying hopeful and doing just a little bit each night.

Yeah....I  feel the same way. We are having only family at our wedding in DR. My girls are putting on an a shower and a stagette for me at the end of this month but it's so disappointing that none of them can come. My MOH was in tears when she told me she couldn't come. Also....after reading a bunch of threads I know I'm not alone in the MIL drama....or my own family drama in regards to this. My FI and I have only been engaged since Dec and getting married in April - we've been talking about going away to get married for YEARS. Last summer we told our family to start saving as we'll have a quick engagement....but I guess they thought we weren't serious - My own mother has been the worst about costs etc (this is the woman who was thinking of going to Australia this april if I didn't get married. the FLIGHT ALONE to OZ is about the same cost all in pp for our wedding) - she's complained so much that I've told her that if it costs too much she doesn't have to come - then complained to my sisters that I told her not to come BangHead.gif. I guess the hardest thing for me is that I thought all the issues were coming from my FI's family at the beginning however I went back home for a shower(I'm from Edmonton originally) and I found out that my own mother was being so underhanded and b*tching about stuff behind my back. Ignorance is bliss. I thought this was supposed to be a happy time and it's been stressful and extremely hurtful. If my FI and I knew what we were going to go thru, we would have eloped. I feel you, Tris. It's heart breaking and it totally sucks....Hugs from the west coast to you!

Her plan for our TTD involves a full day of pretty much touring the island. We're going to the other side (South Side) where there is a gorgeous waterfall that isn't as touristy as the ones nearby the resort, and maybe getting some horse pics, then driving around to Negril to some gorgeous beaches... from 10am to sunset the day after. I'm so pumped. It's awesome to see her so excited too! It puts me at such ease.

 

44 days until we leave. Craziness. I'm trying to get all of my design stuff done but I always end up working on my freelance projects and my OWN wedding projects are falling behind! Ahh!! The biggest "waiting game" I'm playing is that I can't print or finish anything really until I hear from my one friend. I know I posted it about it MONTHS ago but my BEST FRIEND moved to Australia on a whim with her BF for a year or so. Well they've extended their trip and even though she said she'd be at my wedding no matter what when I asked her to my BM, things changed quickly. I doubt she's going to come. Like 99.9% sure she won't be there. She already pretty much told me they can't afford it because they're traveling around, which is understandable, whatever, I'm sad, but I'm over it... the issue is that she is avoiding it because she doesn't want to hurt my feelings and let me down. I told her the VERY latest she needed to tell me was a month before we left (March. 23rd). If she was any other guest it wouldn't hold anything off, but because she's supposed to be my BM (I have her dress hanging in my closet and everything), I can't print the programs, I can't buy my BM gifts, etc. Ugh. Fun!

 

I don't know... nothing to do with the above paragraph but I've been feeling pretty down lately... anyone else in the same boat? I thought I'd be super excited at this time but I'm more down in the dumps than anything. I'm just telling myself it's all the stresses building up on me and I'll get over it.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
