I am super excited that everyone can celebrate all of this together...and we get to party even more!!!! PS..the guy whose 30th bday is on the day after was mad we planned the wedding too close to his bday!! So I guess Im stealing his thunder!
We celebrated my mom's 50th bday on the trip too. It was fun because you can only do so many celebratory wedding shots. We then moved on to her birthday. It's a great way to keep the party going because towards the end of the trip everyone is enjoying each other and totally loving the group atmosphere!

LOL for stealing his 30th bday thunder. What a drama queen. wink.gif What a perfect way to celebrate! We are going to Hawaii for mine and I don't think I could get all my best friends and family to really give a shit and travel for the fun. We've tried! Really- a wedding is the only time you can use the guilt. LOL

ETA- sorry it got so spirited Jennifer. LOL This isn't the first thread where opinions totally clash. Look up other etiquette type questions like is it ok to as for cash... :)

However, I'm glad you feel better about it because the last thing you need is stress. It will find you in other ways if you let it!

It's so interesting to see what different brides expect out of their DW> I think the married BDW brides gave you some great advice, and I"m so glad to see you are more relaxed. Your wedding will be amazing!!!

Whooo looks like this thread blew up yesterday!

I loved reading it all - think it's great that ladies who have already been married are still on here to give us B2B advice, makes you see it from a whole different perspective and you realise there is life after your wedding!

 

Personally I'd love if someone got engaged during the week after our wedding, takes the attention away from us and then we can easily sneak off for some Man and Wife time!! Lol!

 

My FI proposed when we were away on vacation and my sister was due to give birth any day (we booked before she fell preggers!) Well he waited until she had given birth and proposed on the next day - as to not take any thunder away from my sister - although giving birth and proposing is on completely different levels!

Suppose what I'm trying to say, blokes can be more sensitive to these things that what you think!

 

Either way I'm sure you'll have a wonderful wedding day and vacation with your family!

Good for you that your not worrying about it. Trust me no one is going to take any attention away from you and really when you think about it everyone is going to congratulate them for about 15 mins and move on. She'll be the only one staring at her ring the whole time. Its cool if he'd wait till after your wedding like you want him too. Awesome that your fi told the BM and let him know what you guys wanted. I'm sure he'll respect that and wait till after.

I was so stressed out over wedding planning and a ton of stuff before the wedding and the moment the plane landed in Punta Cana and i stepped out my attitude totally changed. I literally didn't give a sh*t about anything i was stressed out about for months and months. It was such an awesome feeling. I bet you'll feel the same way.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
