Is it OK to scrap the AHR??

Recommended Posts

We are having a DW 11-11-11 and decided on No AHR sice the holidays are so soon after. It is a busy time for everyone and more added stress and expense for us as well  wacko.gif

We planning on just making the rounds and visiting with friends and family over all the Holiday dinners and parties!

We honestly have put NO thought into this.  I am sure at some point we will do a BBQ, but that would be 6 ish months after as we are marrying in January.

 

I had decided, possibly, to do a bigger style party before we leave.  At first I wasn't sure about a bridal shower as I read it was in poor taste to invite people who weren't invited to your wedding.  But I have had so many people ask me when it is and when I express my concern they tell me I am completely silly and they would not be offended to come to a bridal shower.  So I was considering having a bridal shower in the day and my stagette that evening for those who want to do both.  Nothing formal, just more of a potluck with games and such, then a fun night out.

 

Who knows!

We were thinking to do an AHR for a while because we wanted to celebrate with everyone at home as well, but we recently decided to scrap it and go to Disney World before our wedding instead ha!

 

We had a big engagement party earlier this month for about 50 of our friends. We had it Mexican themed with Mexican food and lots of tequila and margaritas. It was a blast, and we feel like we got to celebrate w/ our friends. We're also doing another engagement party next month but for family, and it'll have a lot of the cultural stuff like a tea ceremony. I'm also having a bridal shower thrown by my bridal party, and we're both having Bach parties. We've decided that that's definitely enough celebrations for us, and we'd rather spend the money on a week in Disney World before our wedding instead! We are huge Disney dorks, so we're pretty excited now at the prospect of a Disney trip and our wedding in the next 5 months :).

@@tygrrlily ok- this is starting to just get creepy! Hahahaha we are giant WDW dorks too! We aren't doing an AHR mainly cause of the cost and the fact that we need to make sure we don't spend our Disney money! We go every year for a week in December as well as a Disney cruise! If we had an AHR we would have moved some of those funds. We have had people ask us if we are going to have one and simply said - nope... Mexico or nothing! Haha

Haha that's pretty funny! My FI and I first went 2 years ago which was our first time as adults, and we fell hard. We've already been 3x in the last 2 years and a lot of our friends think we're nuts but it's our happy place. We've decided we're good to go once per year from now on :P. We would LOVE to do a cruise and keep wanting to get out to California, but haven't gotten enough of our DW fix yet haha

 

We're trying to figure out accommodation now and I think my FI is more excited for DW than Mexico haha. We usually stay on resort, but we're looking into DVC rental this time but not sure if that'll work out

 

And yes, we think the extra vacation is definitely worth not having the AHR! I'm going to start using that line too - Mexico or nothing!

I'm a DVC owner! It's awesome. If you have any questions about renting or availability/points I can look for you- I may even be able to help with renting some of my points potentially. We used some of our points to go to Aulani in Hawaii this past may... It was gorgeous.. Nicest resort I've stayed at in my 15+ times to Hawaii. (I have family there)

I am not planning to have an ATR. It was never really an option for my FI and I. We just decided on a DW and that was it.

We just found out there's no availability the week we want and unfortunately we can only go that week bc of my work, so we're now looking at on resort options. Thanks for the offer though - really appreciate it :)

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
