Hi Rach,

Welcome to the forum this will become your life line during the wedding planning, great place for ideas and venting off. I am getting married at Sensatori on August 2nd 2011 and there is another girl called Lyndsey who is getting married there before me, so if i can help at all just shout and i'll try my best to help.

I have my dress and my bridesmaids dresses but am still waiting for the OH to sort out what the men are wearing. Here's a photo of my bridesmaid dresses.

DAY 1 - OF LIVING WITH FMIL

 

OK so I've been at work since 7.20am just because I needed to get out of the house and avoid FMIL...yes it has been that bad and sorry I need to vent!!!!

 

So FI picks me up from work yesterday, we go straight to his mums house to pick her up and he has to pull up all the carpets as well because they are getting dumped tomorrow.  So FI goes straight upstairs to make a start and i'm sitting with FMIL in the kitchen, I swear I wasn't even there 10 minutes and she looks at me and says horrified "OMG Charmaine, what has happened to your hair, it is really thinning, you can practically see your scalp on top" confused.gif...well what do you say to that, I didn't even realise there was a problem with my hair, but how lovely of FMIL to point out (she is a hairdresser by the way) so I just mumbled somethng about being stressed with work and day to day life so maybe that's the reason.  She then recommended some herbal tablets from Holland & Barrettt that make your hair grow...I just say, erm thanks!!!

 

After about 1/2 hour of being there we got on to talking about the wedding and I was telling her all the things i've put deposits down for.  She asked if i had found a cake yet and I said no but i know what kind of style i want, something simple, not too fussy, but still pretty, i said we've got a few friends/family that make wedding cakes so we're going to look through there portfolio's.  She then said to me "Well what i'm going to do is when I come over for the wedding i'm going to bring a wedding cake from St Lucia, the lady that made mine is just amazing"...wtf did i not just say that we were getting a cake and how the f is she going to get a wedding cake over from St Lucia????confused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gif...I said to her thank you for the offer but like i said we're going to get one made so we'll already have a cake.  To which she replied "Yes I know sweetie, but this one is going to be a St Lucian cake and it will look and taste amazing, and besides it will be my present to you both"...fencing.gifI said yes but the one that we will have made will be beautiful too because I would have chosen it so it will be exactly what I want and then she said "well then now you'll have two to put on the cake table won't you"....grrrrr i decided it best to give up at the point. 

 

Anyway we get all her things together and eventually go to our flat, my cousin is waiting for me outside with her daughter, I introduce them and we all go inside.  FI goes in the bedroom to have a shower and get changed, I ask if anybody wants a glass of wine and FMIL says yes, btw i've given wine up for lent so I don't have one, and my cousin says no i'm alright thanks to which i whisper to her, i'll give you 5 minutes and you'll be downing the bottle and she gives me a look as if to say Oh she can't be that bad!!  Anyway the 3 of us are in the kitchen and then the next minute she practically shouts to my cousin "Oh sweetie, what has happened to your hair" (my cousin has her hair scraped back in a ponytail), my cousin is like what do you mean?? and looks at me, I just smile back at her as if to say I told you so.  FMIL then proceeds to say "Well honey it has really thinned out at the sides I mean I can see where you've tried to syle it so it doesn't show but the bald part is quite evident, you really should stop pulling your hair back so tight, i've given Charmaine the name of some herbal tablets that help your hair grow, i'd highly recommend them for you too"....well my cousin didn't know what to say and i just pmsl (well inside) .  Then my cousin said, actually Char I will have a very large glass of wine....and i thought sod lent I need a drink so we ended up going to my bedroom and finishing the bottle!! 

 

My cousin went so it was just me, FMIL, FI as my daughter was at choir paractice until 9pm.  we then got onto the subject of my daughter and she was saying how much she has changed over the years (more confusion as you've never even spoken more than 10 words to my daughter), she then asked what star sign she was and i said Libra....hmmmmmm she says....well wtf does hmmmmm mean, so I ask her.  She then proceeds to babble on about how librans are very self absorbed people, they're quite selfish and into themselves, spend most of their time looking in the mirror and then adds but in a good way don't take it offensively.....hit.gif...i just smile sweetly and say, yes she is a wonderful daughter and what teenage girls isn't self absorbed and spends all their time looking in a mirror, but selfish she most definitley isn't!!!

 

 

We then got back onto the wedding and i was showing her the drapes and how they transform the room and was telling we'd really like it but we're not sure if the budget can stretch because they are really expensive but we're going to try...she then asked how much it costs and i said i'm getting quoted about £2000...she then goes "hmmmm well that's not bad really is it when you said expensive i thought you meant in the region of £5,000".....what i wanted to say was "IF I'TS NOT THAT F*%$KING EXPENSIVE WHY DON'T YOU OFFER TO CONTRIBUTE TO OUR WEDDING AND BUY THE DRAPES INSTEAD OF BRINGING US A F*%$KING CAKE WHEN WE'LL ALREADY HAVE ONE!!!!!!!!!   girl_werewolf.gifwhat i did was smile and go to my bedroom. 

 

 

I'd also just like to point out that after careful examination over a bottle of wine there is nothing wrong with either my cousins or my hair and although we found a few grey hairs there were no bald patches.

 

Be sure to log on tomorrow for DAY 2 - OF LIVING WITH FMIL!!!

OMG Char poor you.......xxxxxxxxxx.......in between laughing my head off (sorry but you have written it so well it is  like a comedy sketch!!...lol) I don't know how your didn't lose it when she said that about your daughter....what a rude horrid woman!!  I have a MIL from hell that we no longer talk to thank god & she was exactly like that!! I can't believe all of it actually & now I bet you are paranoid about your hair!!  Don't know how your going to do it chick but keep counting to 10 & stay in the bedroom as much as you can....lol....& keep plenty of wine in the house.  Chin up honey & only 6 days left.....I can't wait for day 2!! xxxx

 

Hope your back is better Michelle & your feeling better Nicy....I have had a cold all week & a couple of people have said to me that maybe its because I am getting worked up about the wedding.......I don't know......I suppose it is a lot to organise & we are all so close now.  It isn't the wedding so much stressing me its the lack of money!!!! bloody stuff...I hate it!!..lol....Richards work is slowing down just at the wrong time & don't know where we are getting spending money from....oh well at least I have my dress!! :)

 

Good luck with move Jo & like some of the girls have said remember your thermals....lol....it's freezing!!

 

Love the bridesmaid dresses herbie, really nice :)

 

My mum is paying for me to have my teeth laser whitened this weekend I am really excited......basically when my mum was pregnant with me she took a certain antibiotic that effected my teeth which means I have always had a line of brown staining going across them.....I used to get teased rotten when I was a kid...anyway all the teeth whitening treatments they have brought out over the years won't work as mine isn't surface staining it is from inside the tooth but my mum saw an advert which said we can now help with tetracycline (which is what mine is called) so gave them a ring & they are confident they can help.  I am having done tomorow & will be soooooooooo happy if it works as other people who don't know me must think I just don't brush my teeth....urrgh!!.....fingers crossed!x

Ooo good luck with the teeth whitening. Hope it helps :o) i use crest white strips which just give a white boost to my teeth. I need to get some actually :o) Hope you feel better. I think we are all abit run down. I can't wait to be layin in the sun and not worrying about EVERYTHING!!!!!!

 

Charmaine - OMG what can i say I'M A LIBRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd like to pop round and smack your MIL in the mouth!!! What a wretched woman. You did well to bite your lip! One thing i most definately am not is selfish and into myself.... libras are know for being kind hearted and indecisive which i am cos i can never make my mind up.... dont know what star signs she's been ready! I wonder what sign she is!?!

 

As Lisa says LOTS of wine for you! I'd not talk about the wedding to her anymore. Let her bring the cake...would be a mighty shame if it went missing or somebody dropped it......how dare she tell you what to have!!! My MIL did a similar thing to us. When we had our engagement party we had a cake and fresh flowers on top. I did the mistake of telling MIL what we were having so off she went and took it upon herself to order the flowers for OUR cake. Luckly the woman in the florist told me when  I  went in to order mine and we cancelled MIL's.... why do they think they have the right to just do these things....???? Now i tell her nothing. On a need to know basis only!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
