We leave in 30 days - I can't wait. It is currently pouring in Chicago, and some 80+ degree and sun sounds amazing! Time has flown. I can't believe my bachelorette is this weekend! We're doing a BYOB painting class in Chicago, then a BYOB sushi dinner, and out :) Sam's is this weekend too. Thank god strip clubs skeeve him out, I won't have to worry! They're just going to a hockey game.

11 Days........down to 11 days until I leave......WOW, the time sure flew by!

I've got almost everything packed plus a little extra. Monday the 15th is my day of beauty (last tan session, waxing session, eyelash extensions, hair cut/color, nails, toes, and eyebrows) and then on the 16th I have a 10 hour drive to my FI in WV. Meeting up with my MOH on the 17th to figure out how to get all this crap....I mean wonderful wedding stuff in the 3 suitcases I am taking. Then Friday the 19th we are on our way!!!! CANNOT wait!!!!

Feeling a bit overwhelmed, but hanging on!!!

We did not, we used an Ipod and hooked it up to their big speakers because we wanted to save money on our end and it worked really well. 

We also did the Ipod and hookup to Speakers... One of our guest announced the first dances at the very beginning when we entered and then we controlled the music the rest of the night and had a blast people were up dancing all night long and we had about 41 guest there including us.

We got married Feb 15th and we have not received our either... I was not really going to worry about it until it was past 60 days. I figured it is like getting you Passport. It is going through a government and they are never in a hurry with important documents.

I remember reading that someone had something streamed at EDR and it was very reasonable, can you remind me what the cost was?

My mom was considering packing a steamer, but I didn't think it was necessary.

Anyone remember????

I had my wedding dress steamed for about $15. They did a fantastic job with it! They picked it up Saturday morning, and returned it that same afternoon (the laundry is closed on Sundays, and our wedding was Monday). They hung it up on the curtain rod in our room wrapped in a couple of white sheets (so my husband couldn't see it before our wedding day).

 

The prices are listed in pesos on the laundry sheet in the closets.

 

If you need the steamer for your dress, I'd just let the resort do it. Just be sure to remove any removable pieces (e.g. corset laces, belts, etc.). If it's for every day or dinner clothes, they do have an iron w/ steam capabilities in each room.

Did anyone get the dress laundered, after the ceremony, at the resort?  Thinking about doing it there instead of here.  I plan on wearing it again for my AHR.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
