Any news on your dress nmurch? Do we get to see pictures?

I am almost done my DIY luggage tags. Can't wait to have them done and I will post pictures. Also have decided to do a boudoir session as a gift for FI. Booked for November 12, so hopefully it will really encourage me to work out more LOL! We will be sitting down with our TA on Thursday to get the menu and details started, she is kind enough to be the direct link to the WC (plus she seems to get responses back much quicker than I was).

 

How is the planning going for everyone else?

just need :- rings for me and FI, shoes for me, jewellery for me and my daughter, music to sort out, ceremony wording to sort....

oh, quite a lot still to do then!

I love these shoes...so cute!!! I haven't been on here for a while and it hit me today...96 days!!! Last week I ordered my placecard holders & wedding favours (not doing OOT bags). I'm also helping my sister plan my shower. Otherwise there's not much left to do. I keep feeling like I'm forgetting to do something but everytime I go over my list, everything's up to date. I really hope I'm not missing something! My guests are getting really excited too, everyone's looking forward to a week away!

Can I ask what you're doing for favours?  We're also opting not to do OOT bags, but I'm kind of strapped for favour ideas!

We're doing flip flop luggage tags, it was the only 'beachy' favour I found that I liked and that was within our budget. Here's the link:

That website has a lot of great ideas so you may find something else you like.

We're sending out bubbakegs before we leave, that way everyone will get something they'll actually use, possibly buy something extra when we get there if we have the time/cash!

80 days till we get married legally in MD and then on the 12th were off to Cancun for our symbolic ceremony for the 15th.  I have nothing done!  I've been busy with so many other things, that my wedding planning has slid.  The economy has been rough on our family and friends and it appears we will only have 4 guests attending our wedding, so I'm not going to do anything spectacular for the ceremony, we have to save that for the AHR.

Hello lovies! Haven't been on here in a while...well, actually I have, but I've been more of a lurker than a poster.

 

I can't believe we're so close to January! I leave in exactly 3 months from tomorrow, and I totally do NOT feel prepared. I still have to make up a music playlist for the reception, get FI a wedding ring, make a decision about OOT bags or not (and if I decide yes, I need to actually get stuff!), buy clothes for the trip, PAY for the trip, get my wedding dress altered...aack! I'm stressed.

 

FI and I got legally married last Friday. We had a friend of his sign the wedding license...no words spoken, it was super low-key, to make the ceremony in Mexico that much more special. I don't feel married AT ALL and I won't until January 31st :)

 

How is everyone else doing? Anybody as far behind as me?

I am sooo behind as well!

FI needs his tie but now I am thinking I don't want him to wear his suit and tie...I want to change his outfit. I guess that's not fair eh. lol

 

Our father's need their outfits as well. Hmm.

Ordered luggage tags from a printer here with our logo on TYVEK. Hopefully those come in soon - I am planning to mail them out before the trip.

 

Shoes have been delivered TODAY!! :)

Now I can get my dress altered. So excited. I also bought a thick bangel from Swarovski to wear...just need to find some earrings. Don't think I want to wear a necklance. Hmm...I am totally thinking out loud. Thank you for reading!

 

Anyone joined theknot.com? Looks like they have lots of pictures you can see of different colored weddings in so many different places...verrrry kool!

 

okay thats all for now

good luck to all

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
