November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

Joanne -  Sorry I wasn't clear but that was actually for Taryn.  Didn't she post a while back that Friday (today) would be the legal wedding day and then Saturday would be the BD session?  Maybe I am mistaken.

Couples massages, can't wait! It is included in our package too, haven't scheduled it yet but plan on doing it befor ethe wedding as well to relax. 

 


I am stressing about the AHR a bit as well - though luckily ours is just an AHP (at home party) instead of a reception (DJ, beer, wine, hors d'ouevres, cupcakes, and slide show).  Our party is just 8 days after we get back from Mexico, so the caterer needs a final count before we leave and the DJ needs a song list before we leave, etc.  Oh well - it will all happen, it always does.

I know it's CRAZY how soon it is! I'm in full fledge excitement mode now, only 15 days before we leave. O.M.G.!!!!!!

After work yesterday my colleages took me out to celebrate (Mike joined us too), and it was a great night, exhausted today, bad start to the plans for getting organized this weekend LOL, but totally worth it!

We got our first wedding gifts last night too!! That was pretty cool and exciting. Feeling so real now!

 

So Taryn, did you have legal wedding yesterday, and how did it go?? All ready for BD today?

Girls I can't wrap my head around how soon everything is. Time is like in fast forward mode!!

I am taking my h2b's ring down to be engraved tomorrow, I'm really excited because its a surprise for him and I just know he will love it! 

 

I also had my hair trial this week, which is another thing to tick off the list - I was really really pleased with the results. 

 

I am hoping to pack next weekend, although I have two days off work before we fly and we fly on a Sunday so actually have 3 whole days to pack and be excited! And believe me I will be excited. 

 

I have been checking out our hotels webcam and despite having days of rain last week, the weather has been gorgeous this week which has just added to the excitement.

Are you keeping the engraving a secret until the wedding day? What will it say? I already had ours done. They say "for a million years". It's a line in our first dance song. They have been done for a couple weeks and i dont think he had even looked at the rings, but i figure he will look when it gets closer to the wedding. I thought about writting him a little love type letter and putting in in the box with the rings then wrapping them like a gift. Maybe on the tag put "for my love on our wedding day". I'm very curious to see what you are doing!  

 

What do you ladies think?

I am super duper excited too - two weeks from today is my wedding day!!! 
And only 11 days until we fly out...woohoo.

 

With how fast everything is moving - I can only imagine things will move as fast once we get to our destinations.  So remember to take tons of pictures (not just your pro pics) to help you remember the whole trip.  I printed out photo-share cards for all of our guests so we can have access to everyone's pics.  I need to test out my instructions to make sure they will work for everyone...

11 days for you!! 15 for us, my brain is still trying to absorb it!

 

Aren't the photo share cards the cutest idea!! I've said it before and I'll say it again - thank God for this website!!

 

My fiance knows I got his ring engraved but he doesn't know with what. I'm fresh off the boat Irish and split my time between there and US for work so I had it engraved with "I Love You" in gaelic. Also added the date. Hope he loves it! I don't want him to see it until wedding day.

 

Ok this was a little break for me, back to packing now ...... !!

Have you ladies seen that there is now a hurricane off of the Yucatan?  It is predicted to skirt the entire Riviera Maya this Thurs / Fri / Saturday.  I will keep my fingers crossed that none of our resorts suffer any damage.

 

There is a bride in my resort thread that is getting married in Cancun this Friday...my heart goes out to her.

 

I have to hope and pray that the forecast is wrong and that Rina doesn't strengthen to a Category 3 and that she stays further off shore than they are predicting.

Just when I thought my evening couldn't get any worse .......

My best friend just stopped by to tell me she isn't coming to the wedding, less than 2 weeks before we leave. I'm completely gutted. Just had a little cry, made me feel a little better but still so hurt.
Now I am so stressed about the weather, even though I know I have to let it go as I can't control it. Those poor brides who are there this w/e, am pulling for them that it changes course.
Even if it passes before us, I would be worried about potential damage to the resort in the mean time.

Oh boy, too many things to worry about!!

We don't leave until next Wednesday (wedding on Saturday) so the storm will be gone by the time we get there so I am more concerned about damage to the resort.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend - that is not what you need now.  Don't people understand that we have been planning for a long time, so the last thing you want to do is add any stress! 

 

I actually thought about not posting about the hurricane because we all don't need bad news, but I felt like we all definitely needed to know.

 

I swear I feel like the stress is is making me feel like I am PMSing.  Just this weekend while attending a wedding I was so happy and excited.  We were dancing at the wedding and it dawned on me that exactly 2 weeks later we would be dancing at OUR wedding.  But I swear all excitement is now gone.  Between the hurricane and 2 guests not getting their info in the mail from the travel agent and it being my responsibility to try and fix it (why me?  they are fiance's family members!), I am no longer excited.  Hoping something tomorrow will make it turn around.

    • 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?
