Looks beautiful!  I agree, I think less is more in terms of jewelry, etc.

I love one shoulder dresses!  You definitely need to be careful with jewelry with them though.

 

My to-do list hasn't changed since last week - just spent 4 days taking my mom on vacation for her 80th birthday.  Now I feel so far behind!  Thank goodness its a 3 day weekend coming up.

Thanks Jen...I have done quite a bit of research on both of them today (mostly from trip advisor), and what I can come up with is that Xcaret has a lot of various things to do, but seems more laid back and nature'ish.  My FI is really into that stuff -- birds, fish, etc.  Xplor seems more active.  I love the camera aspect of Xplor -- every helmet has a number/sensor that takes pictures of you all over the resort, and you can buy the who disc of your whole trip/day there for less than $40 a person.  A lot of the pictures look like it is a lot of fun.  I asked him to look at both websites and he really doesn't care where we go (he wants no part of planning lol).  I was first leaning towards Xcaret because I thought he would really want to do the snuba or shark swimming, but now I think I'm leaning towards Xplor?

There is also a palace resort called "Xpu-Ha Palace" that is a eco-resort...and they have snorkeling, flamingos, turtles, aligators, etc....so I was thinking if we wanted that eco-park feeling maybe we could just go there for a day and everything would be free!

Hey girls!

 

Just when I thought life couldn't get any more hectic, it did!  Guess who had to go into emergency appendectomy surgery Tues am?  Yep, this girl!  Just what I need a week and a half before I leave for my wedding.  I got released from the hospital last night.  The doctor seems to think I will be fine by the time we leave but I am seriously stressing.  Oh and to top it off we are moving out of our house this Saturday into a new place that we just bought.  Shoot me now!!!

 AWW, Alisa! I can't believe that. I think if any of us were in your shoes we'd be stressing hardcore too. On a bright note, at least it happened at home rather than abroad! Could you imagine? Wow, I can't believe that you have to move right now too. I despise moving... Do you at least have a long weekend with all 3 days off from work? Do you have a good support system with lots of family and friends to help you out? If you have any favors to cash in, now seems like the time. I'd just reach out and see who is able to help. You can't do it all... Especially while you're still recovering from surgery. Poor thing! The good thing is as that as soon as you get all of this yucky stuff over with, you'll have a nice new home to enjoy and then you get to go to paradise and get some much needed R&R.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
