I keep trying to rationalize if it's so bad right now it has to be so much better after!!

That is really good news about Rina!! 

 

I love all the packing ideas everyone is throwing out there.  I have two different checklists to go over when I start packing.  I know I will still forget something LOL.

 

I hate how shoes take up so much space but yet we all feel they are so necessary to bring, right?? :)  I plan on bringing white and black wedges (most space takers), wedding heels, wedding flip flops, black heels, sparkly heels and 2 pairs of flips flops....oh and workout shoes.  I am not really a big shoe girl but I feel I need all of these.  I know that is just one suitcase right there ugh!!  I need to cut back already.  :P

Great job ladies!!  I loved reading both of them.  I have started mine in Word and I need to layout and take pics of the OOT bags and a few other things before I can post it. 

 

Very inspiring.  Thank you to you both!!

Something similar happened with my BM/good friend, she gave me about 5 weeks notice. It's impossible for this not to change the friendship I think. :(

I've gotten "yes" RSVPs and then a "NO"  after the RSVP deadline, but this evening felt like the nail in the coffin and just bought me to tears.

I called her an hour ago to say I hope it doesn't ruin our friendship (more fool me??) but she has to understand I'm upset and can't really get into it now. I really don't want this to ruin our friendship but at the same time i don't know how it can ever be the same again.

I love your tabe set up! Where did you get the vases from? And did you use a real flower inside, or is it a fake flower?

I am going to start pulling out all the OOT bag stuff and seeing what it all looks like.  I've done things in little spurts so I need to figure out everything I really have.  Then I'll see if it all fits in one suitcase which I think it will. 

 

I really need to send out the pre-travel brochures and luggage tags. Geez I'm slacking!!

 

I tested out my centerpieces with the table runners, napkins, sashes and two place settings last night.  Finally looks good.  It was hard for me to envision what it would look like together without actually seeing it.  Now I am happy!!

 

What do you think?  Is it enough?  There will probably be two to a table.

There is a turquoise LED light in the vase that will look good at night time.  It's hard to see it in  the pic.

Vases are from the Dollar Tree!!  The flower inside is a fake orchid from Michaels.  Still looking for the right one but I have those as a back up if needed.

    • 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.
