Joanne -

 

I am so happy for you!  More than anything I am happy you don't have an unfortunate event hanging over the rest of your wedding planning.

 

To me it makes perfect sense that you feel better after venting to us.  Who else could understand the stress you are under better than us?!

And no, it doesn't sound odd that you felt better after typing up the venting post. It helps to get it off your chest; whether or not it's posted somewhere or emailed to someone, I find it cathartic to write things down. 

 

And yeah, the dedicated corner for wedding projects is overflowing. On top of it all, I picked my dress up today and that sucker is huge! I don't think it'll fit in my closet. Oi.

Larson is a lucky man indeed! LOL!! 

 

Thanks. I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest today as I left the salon with my dress. My dress actually came in several months ago. I went to preview it May 1st. And I was nervous, just like you are because I was afraid I wasn't going to like it. I had seen another dress I tried on (not a wedding dress but could have passed as one) and was afraid I'd like my wedding dress less after that. Anyway, I had one of my girlfriends with me and we both loved it! I walked out of the salon and my friend said I was absolutely glowing. I couldn't stop smiling. woot.gif I felt like dancing and jumping all at once. Ha ha ha. Much like today. Hee hee.

 

The salon said I could keep it there as originally I had intended to get my alterations done there. That was helpful for me because of storage issues and the temptation to pull it out all the time. Plus, my fiance wouldn't have to catch me trying it on since he's not supposed to see it until the big day. But then my mom, who has not seen the dress, wanted me to come visit and bring the dress with me so that she can also do the alterations (she's an alteration tailor so not a biggie for her to do it). So I agreed since we have a bunch of things to take care of including all the junk I've got stored back at home. I'm going next week and decided I'd pick up the dress today so that I could try it on before my fiance got home as he's working late today. Ha ha ha. I forgot that wedding dresses cannot be put on by oneself (how short my memory is because it took 3 girls to put on my friend's wedding dress just a couple of weekends ago); so alas I couldn't zip it up all the way. LOL! So I had to take it off, which I did very reluctantly. Otherwise I would be sitting here in my wedding dress typing up this response. LOL! But it's in the garment cover, hanging on the door where I can see it. I'll have to put it away before my fiance comes home, although I'm tempted to try it on again. Heh heh.

 

Pucca is one of my nicknames - my lovely friends and family have given me quite a few. My real name is Eun-sil. cheesy.gif

Hey Joanne,

 

I'm glad the Jetblue thing worked out for you. They also cancelled are direct flight for a monday! We didn't book jetblue for the way home so I won't be able to luck out with a direct flight home. I'm thinking we may just bite the bullet and go down and extra day early to avoid and connections and loosing wedding related bags haha. The worst part about our canceled flight is that I found out from my bridesmaid who is on the same flight. They didn't even email us! I'm pretty sure we are going to just have to pay to stay an extra day but we are def. gunna see if they are willing to do something for us. We are also going down for 13 days is we stay the extra night. What day are you traveling from boston?, That where we are from too, maybe ill see you at Logan!

Eun-sil, so happy for you and your dress!! Can't wait to see pictures!!

 

Alysam4785 .... yyyaaaayyyyy another bride in Boston!!
I think it sucks that JetBlue didn't contact people!! We found out when future sis in law was trying to book the Monday direct flight and was told there was none!! I see your wedding date is the 5th, so you will be gone before me, but would have been funny if we were on the same flight! We went to mexico last year and there were a few girls on the flight carrying big white garment bags so I'm not expecting to be the only bride.

So glad things worked out with Jetblue.  Gosh what a headache.  I love Jetblue and I wish I could fly them everywhere.  They were quite a bit more expensive flying from LAX to CUN so we had to go with AA for the flights down there so some of our guests could be on that flight with us.  We get to fly Jetblue home for FREE thanks to all my Trublue points. (that's if the flight still exists haha)

 

My real name is Taryn!!

 

So I got the personalized bags for the BMs, moms and sister-in-law in the mail yesterday.  They look great and would be perfect for carry-on purses so I am thinking of handing those out early to them.  I also ordered the ties for the guys, the OOT bags from OTC and some items for the OOT bags including the first aid kits.  Things are being checked off slowly but surely.  Feels so good!! woot2.gif

    • 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.
