    You have over 2 weeks before you leave right? And almost 3 weeks to the big day? I don't think you have anything to stress about. I would say stay out of the sun (real and beds) until all the redness is gone. Do not attempt to tan to even out what you have now. Once the redness calms down use a good exfoliator.

    After that take it easy on the sunbeds, do enough to give you a good base and headstart, and you'll be surprised that just a couple of days in Mexico and you'll have an amazing tan.

    Good luck!

      I leave for the airport in 15 days + 6 hours.  The ceremony is in 18.5 days.  Not that I am counting :-)

       

      Paul and I spent the evening picking out our music.  The last song we were having trouble with was his mother/son dance song.  I am eager to send our list off to our resort DJ to make sure he either has all of the songs or can get them.  I also finished making all of the paper products (tags, cards, programs, etc) for the 2 new guests.

       

      My goal was to get a reasonable enough tan before I leave that I can use SPF 50 and not make an special effort to get sun the few days before the wedding.  I really don't want there to be a chance of burning before the pictures.  I then plan on switching over to SPF 30 after the wedding.

        That's great you got the music and paper stuff done.  Doesn't it feel good to CHECK!  CHECK!

          Is anyone else having a bit of extra stress around what to do with pets while they are away?  Paul has never boarded the dog because he has always been able to leave the dog either with me or with his parents.  Well, obviously I will be in Mexico and so will his parents.  So I have had to research pet sitters and schedule trial visits, etc.  I have taken on this task because it needs to get done and we women seem to be better at planning and making things happen.  That is one of the major things outstanding with my planning.

           

          Also, does anyone have a wedding to attend before they leave?  (other than your own legal weddings of course)  I will be attending a wedding this Saturday and I know I will be checking out all of the details and thinking about what else I could add to mine.  It will be tough, but I will have to let all of it go and know that it is too late for me to include anything else....

            I don't envy the task you have ahead of you with finding a place for the dog. But hopefully you'll find a great place where the dog will be happy while you guys are gone. 

             

            I wasn't stressed until a week ago when my brother-in-law (who unfortunately can't come and was supposed to cat-sit for us) got a ferret. I trust that my cat can handle a small ferret but I just didn't want to put her under anymore stress considering we will have just moved to a new place a week before we leave. I just didn't feel comfortable and not knowing where this ferret came from (he found him on the street), and I really didn't want to risk any fights or something not-so-nice between the two. But thankfully my honey's coworker said he'd be happy to check in on her every two to three days; so I'm relieved because she'll at least be at home amidst some familiar things. 

             

            I actually went to a good friend's wedding in August and was checking out everything with my wedding in mind of course. But she had a different sort of wedding so it's not like I could steal some of her ideas; and it just made me more excited about my own! So I'm sure this wedding will just get you that much more excited about your own!! So have fun!!

                  Yes it sure is.  I've been busy every weekend which has really helped with that.  Can't wait for our month to be here.  It's going to be such a great feeling.

                    Definitely...I couldn't wait for October to get here and now I wish there was another week in the month.  I leave for Mexico in 13 days...

                     

                    My goal is to start packing some things up this weekend.  Maybe all of the OOT and wedding items this weekend so that will just leave clothes and vacation items for next week.

                      Good idea.  I plan to start packing the first week in Nov to get things started.  I hope the day we leave the luggage is packed, zipped and locked and I can just relax and enjoy it all.
