April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

The Story:

 

All week, we had been planning on going out for supper with FI's parents Saturday night.  His dad had called at the start of the week and said he wanted to take us out for FI's bday (which is wed) and his mom's bday (which is tomorrow). So yeah.. we were expecting a harmless quiet dinner just the 4 of us.  Our day was kind of all over the place with doing some shopping for the trip and our workouts.  By the time we had gotten to FI's parents place, we were starving and ready to eat!!! His dad was offering us a snack, but we passed thinking we were going right to supper... we should have eaten those snacks!!!

 

Anyway, he gets' on the highway saying it's a secret where he's taking us, but he heard from a friend that it was really good.  All along FI's mom is acting like it's a secret to her too BTW....  We start getting further and further away from home... like we're in Toronto and then we start going north!!  STILL, FI and I suspected nothing.  We end up in Vaughan and FIL is acting like he's lost and not sure what's going on.  We end up at this place called Dave & Busters or something and FI's pissed LOL like "why are we going here?" ... FIL is still acting like he's not sure what happened with his directions and we go inside thinking it's just to warm up.  Next thing we know our best friends are running out at us!! and then pops out FI's aunts and uncles and cousins.... 15 min later, our pops my parents!!! LMAO ... we're given "bride" and "groom" shirts to wear and yeah... we had a great meal and then played games the rest of the night. We're not exactly party people so it was pretty much right up our ally.

 

Apparantly plans for this had been in place for a month!!!! WE HAD NO CLUE!!!!

My mom & grandma threw me my wedding shower this weekend :)!! It was actually a lot of fun and I got to see people I haven't seen in years. It was mostly their friends and some old friends of mine (as we were back in my home town), but it was awesome. I got spoiled rotten too. Not to mention my flaky friend who was supposed to be my BM (you all know the story) - well, her mom sent a HUGE basket of presents, including a $75 home depot gift card, a bunch of serving dishes, baskets, an electronic pepper grinder and a bunch of other stuff... along with a card saying how "Tiffany really wishes she was here with you right now, we both love you!" Almost started crying. Wow.

 

Drama with my sister has escaladed though. Wow. Every time I try to give her advice I get the "you've never been through a break up before! You don't know!" Okay, great, I haven't, but I'm getting insanely frustrated how I'm getting married in less than a month and still everything is about you. UGGHH!!!!

OMG Brandy!!!! So soon!!! Best of luck with everything, it is going to be beautiful!!! Just know that your April ladies will be thinking of you!!!

 

Laura and Tris that is great about your events, sounds like you are both loved and lucky ladies!

 

Tris I feel you with the sister drama. My sister is so desperate for the spotlight at this point that she went and got a ridiculous tattoo!! She had "Pirate" tattooed on the inside of her lip. WTF??? Do you seriously need attention that badly that you would get the stupidest thing you can think of tattooed on yourself?? My friends had to totally take over the bachelorette party planning because she was too busy planning her own birthday party (which isn't until May) to give a crapp about the biggest night out of my life... pfffft... whatever!!!! (Sorry, touchy subject)

Kiwi, I'm sorry to hear about the flower girl...  That's terrible that she's been sick for so long, I hope she'll be okay.  I know it stinks that they are just telling you about it now, but I'm sure they didn't expect her to be sick for so long.... 

 

Laura, that's absolutely a great story for your get together over the weekend!  I always love surprises like that!!!  I'm sure it was an absolute blast!!!

 

Brandy, I can't believe you leave so soon!!!  I hope you have a fantastic time, and I can't wait to hear about it/see pictures!  Be safe and have fun!!!

 

Tris, I'm sorry to hear about the situation with your sister.  I hate dealing with people when they are acting like that...  They think the world has never experienced anything when they are going through it.  Even if you haven't, that doesn't mean she has to treat you bad.  I'm sure being her sister that you'd be there to help or just listen if she didn't act so dramatic.

 

Meggers, good luck with your 2nd fitting tonight!

I feel your pain. It's so frustrating because I'm powerless. If I say anything I'M the selfish one because I'm not there for her when she needs me. So I just have to take a deep breath and let her eat up all my Mom's & families attention. I'm so glad that I'm marrying the most amazing guy in the world... thank God I have him there for me now.

That sucks that you ladies are having sister drama. I really hope that they can let it go and pull themselves together for you on your wedding day at least! I would lose it if I had to be consoling to somebody on my wedding day...

    • 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?
