November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies (just Taryn and Sarah at this point I think) -

 

I got back late last night and am now doubly married!  My group had a great trip, but can I just say that playing hostess to that many people over that many days is exhausting!  Paul and I only had a day to ourselves on the beginning of the trip (and that was taken up mostly by appointments with the wedding coordinator and travel company) and one at the end of the trip.  I am so glad tomorrow starts the weekend, because I am exhausted.  I will post more later in the day after I get things started here at work (or at least the illusion of it), but I will post the 3 pics my photographer emailed last night as a welcome home gift:

OMG you look gorgeous!!  Absolutely beautiful pictures.  Can't wait to see the others.  So glad you had a great time. 

Congrats on being a MRS again!!  :)

 

Can't believe you got home yesterday and are at work already.  I fly home on Thanksgiving and I don't go back to work until the following Tuesday.  Taking all the time I can LMAO!!

Taryn - Believe me, I would have taken today off if I had the vacation days to spare.  I switched jobs this spring, so I only have my pro-rated number of days to work with....

 

Also, I have to take next Friday off for my AHR.  So although I would really like to sleep in and be lazy this weekend, I will have to be productive. 
 

My photographer said he will get me the DVD of pictures next week - I don't know if I am patient enough to wait that long.

 

Random travel tip that I got off of the what to pack thread that was great:  bring an over-the-door shoe organizer (preferably with clear pockets - I got mine at Walmart for $5-7) to keep all of your toiletries out of the way.  Not only did this keep Paul & I from going nuts with the mess, but it helped keep the room looking neater for the getting ready pics.

I bought a small one from the $1 store.  Has 6 or 8 pockets (can't remember).  Its small but I figured it can hold enough to help with the clutter.  Such a great idea.

So what did (or will for Sarah) you bring to wear every evening?  All dresses? Any jeans? Capris? Shorts? Skirts?

 

I have a handful or dresses and two pairs of capris that are for sure coming but I am just wondering what others did.  Did you pack an outfit for everyday you were there or did you just bring a few and are re-wearing?  :P

I brought a dress for every single night and didn't end up wearing a couple of them.  My resort was very breezy (it is on a point with water on 3 sides), so I found myself quite chilly at times.  The only pants I had with me were yoga pants that I had brought for the plane.  So if your resort is known for being windy, then I would definitely take along some pants.  Because I didn't have pants, I was grateful for my cardigan.  If you do pants/capris, then you could certainly take different tops and rewear the bottoms with no problem.  I did rewear one long jersey-type dress because I wore it once with friends/family and once when just Paul & I (and of course he wouldn't even notice such a thing, much less care).

Thanks.  I was thinking  I can re-wear things during my honeymoon and no one would know hehe.  I'll probably bring 1 pair or jeans that I love and the capris and a few tops to mix n match to give me several options.  The rest will be dresses.  Thanks for your input. :)

I usually plan every outfit for each day... but I'm very unorganized for this trip.  There are too many days to plan for!  So I'm kind of throwing in everything that I *think* I might wear.  Here's what I have so far:

 

3 pairs of heels / 4 pairs of sandals / 1 pair gym shoes

5 or 6 pairs of shorts (probably way more than I need)

A bunch of tank tops and a few nicer tops for dinner

2 skirts but mostly dresses (one for each night / dinner) - 2 of them are long dresses

3 cover-ups and 4 or 5 bathing suits

 

And I'll either wear my white capris on the plane or my white linen pants...

 

Too many decisions!
