Definitely having the roller coaster of emotions...the wedding has ended up costing way more than we expected (no surprise there, I guess), but it has made me question our decision.  In the end, I know it will be beautiful and everything will be perfect.  Like everyone else though, I'm just ready to be there already!!!

 

Jessica - I'm a teacher too and I feel ya!  We get out June 9th (next week :))!  But, I only actually have 5 days with the kids left!  Seems so crazy!

 

Our civil ceremony at home is a week from today, so we'll be officially married in ONE WEEK!  Then, we'll do it again (symbolically) in TWO weeks!  Yay!

It is weird how close it is. I know everything will work out and once we're at the destination all will be good. The destination wedding isn't my stress-fiancé is. He procrastinates so it hasn't been a big deal all along but now time is of essence. I have become a nagging wife before I'm even a wife! Like our rings didn't get ordered and are now scheduled to arrive next Saturday - 5 days before we leave! So it's stuff like that. This weekend I plan to start packing all our supplies. We're going to have so many bags. But I don't want to wait until the last minute - it's like moving-do a little each day. Went for my final dress fitting and love it. They asked if i wanted to wait while they steamed it but I said if I take it home today I'll be trying it on every day!

Jess - I know what you mean...I teach middle school and our last weeks are a joke!  It's all about babysitting most of them once this week ends, which is really quite exhausting!!

 

What do you teach?  At least the light (AKA Cancun sunshine) is at the end of the tunnel!

 

I know the weather is unpredictable; it just doesn't go with my Type A personality!  Oh well, we'll just hope for the best!

Steph, I'm sorry but I have to laugh a little at this because I can totally relate. I think that the procrastination factor is deeply ingrained somewhere in that Y chromosome! My FI still hasn't gotten gifts for his guys yet. I'd be freaking out if I didn't have gifts for my girls! But something about men makes it so that they don't sweat it until the very last minute and I think many a womankind turns into the nagging wife and can be driven crazy by this factor. What can ya do? I just try to remind, remind, remind, set deadlines (sometimes purposely extra early) and stress to him when something is really important and when I really need him to be on his A game. I think part of being a wife, in some cases, means running the show behind the scenes (if that makes sense?) That's what it means for me anyway! I have a passive, kinda lazy guy - but I love him to death and that's really all that matters... Congrats on the final fitting! It's the best feeling to have a dress that fits you perfectly, isn't it! smile159.gif

    • 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!
