As for the tipping....I haven't really thought about it yet :oP

 

I know I am definitely taking a lot of ones with me to tip for drinks/food from time to time at the resort (even though tips are technically included).  I don't really know the etiquite (sp?) of others??  I don't really think I'll tip the WC or photog?

Girls! What do you have left to do? We're down to weeks... days!!! It's crazy. I just can't believe how fast everything has flown by and I know there's no slowing down probably until after we say farewell to our last few wedding guests and have a few days alone, together, on the beach. Ahh.. It sounds so nice. I wish I was leaving tomorrow- take that back because I still have a few more things on my to do list:

 

*print welcome brochures once all details are finalized

*eyelash extensions

*hair triim

*mani/pedi

*wax

*pack

 

NOT BAD cheesy.gif

mostly pampering and getting myself into tip top shape...

 

Party wise - my girls threw a fabulous bachelorette party for me over the weekend - the same day as FIs bachelor party. Oh my goodness!! I had so much fun. They got a hotel where we all met and had some champagne, followed by dinner at a super cute restaurant, dancing like old times at a club and then.... probably the funniest/most awkward part of the night. They took me to an erotic art show. WOW! Interesting to say the least. Then we went back to the hotel for the night. I haven't had such a blast in quite a while! The only party that we have left at this point is a few days before we leave. We're having the wedding party over to our place for some drinks and grub and we're going to give them their gifts and thank them. I'm STOKED!!!!!

I know!!!  My list has definitely dwindled...

 

-finish packing -- I already started :)

-pick up dress

-print menus and programs

-find airport transportation from home to airport

-figure out a sitter for our cats :(

-Brazilian Blowout

-mani/pedi

-stock up on sunscreen, hairspray, etc.

 

@aeluzu - Your bachelorette party sounds amazing!  What fun!  An erotic art show?   I think that sounds disturbingly fantastic :)  I don't get a bachelorette party because literally, all of my friends are either pregnant or have had a baby in the last couple of months.  They would be no fun!  I figure I'll just have to have MORE FUN in Mexico! :)

I think I am the last bride here to leave!!!  Time at work is sooo dragging at this point!! (I'm a school teacher..waiting impatiently for summer vaca! lol).  We leave exactly 4 weeks from today!

 

I actually really think I only have to print and assemble my programs and welcome books!?!  I just ordered welcome tags and placecards from a seller on etsy, so I'm waiting for that to come in.  I already packed two carry-on bags (my FI thinks I'm nuts for it)...but I really just wanted to see how much room I still needed.  All wedding gifts, decorations and all but the liquids for the OOT bags fit, so we are pretty good to go I think!  I'm actually really excited to start packing...I do feel like I may get out my dresses and things soon to see what I have and what I still might need!?!

 

I had my 2nd dress fitting yesterday, and it fits so good!!  Just a few little adjustments and it'll be perfect!  She didn't get the chance to finish my TTD, so I'll go back mid-June to try everything on one last time and make sure I'm good to go!  I also go to try out my jewelry yesterday and realized that the things I was originally going to wear don't really look right.  Luckily my bridesmaid has the perfect earrings for me to borrow, and I'm doing away with a necklace because of my one shoulder dress and hair flower (don't want to have too much).  I'm also changing the shoes I was going to wear to something I already owned...go figure!

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
