Hello everyone!! We're getting married at the Barcelo Maya Colonial on Jan 19, 2011, which is coming up sooo fast! I feel like there is a ton to do, though I'm not really sure what the next step is. Got the location, sent out the save-the-dates, got the dress. Oh, I know, bridesmaids dresses!! :)

May sound silly but when i envision myself on my wedding day that what i see my hair being like?

Thinking of blue's & greens for the colour scheme to tie with the ocean and FI is opting for a blue with green tartan for his kilt, so white flowers would be fine I guess?

OT - but when im still a noob i cant post pics right? (not that i have remotely figured out how to yet! must figure that one out I love to share photo's and idea's!!)
Yeah you can still post pictures - i think you just cant download attachments / templates at the moment.

My colour scheme is turquoise and gold ie; the sea and the sand - original i know. We have give the guests this colour scheme as well for the clothes as there are only 18 of us going. And lucky for us turquoise seems to be the in colour this summer.

Went shopping today in town there are so many gorgeous summer clothes - shame i dont get paid until next week! And the sun is only bloody shining in England today - whoop whoop!

I know how you feel i wrote down a 'to get / to do' list on sunday and OMG there is still sooooooo much i have to get / to. When i set our day and booked our holiday in Nov'09 i said i would buy things every month so i didnt have to end up buying everything later on and what have i bought about 2 things! lol.

I've done all of our invitations and RSVP cards for our AHR as we are having a large party when we get back. It cost me about £100 in total - when i was looking to get them all printed it was working out about £300 - £400! FI thinks they look good as do my BMs who i have shown them to. I'll get my camera up and running and post a picture over the weekend

For the actual wedding day invitations i will only need 12 but i will make sure these are that bit 'extra' special.

As we have a public holiday here in the UK on Monday and the weather looks a bit rubbish over the next few days think i am going to have a go at a few DIY projects and see if i am any good at it before i set myself the task of doing lots of projects!! Have any of you done anything 'homemade' yet?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
