Pampering, Rings and Pre-travel packages

Recommended Posts

I picked up our wedding bands today on my way home from getting my hair trimmed and highlighted.


Before I talk about my wedding ring, I have to mention my hair and skin. I made an appointment 4 days before our departure to Europe to get my hair pampered and touched up. I am a naturally dirty blond that prefers to accent her natural blond features. That means, I lighten it just a touch with partial highlights. My blog pic is actually my natural hair color, dirty blond.


Since blonds have a hard time with shine because the sun does not reflect off it like darker hair colors, my stylist recommended a conditioning treatment. I cannot remember what it is called but it will help with shine. I will probably also get my roots touched up too.


I have an appointment next Wednesday to get a facial. So excited. I do not pamper myself often and I love doing it. Its better than shopping..which I am itching to do since it's been 75 in DC this week. I want to get some cute sun dresses for our trip...naturally :)


Ok..back to my rings. I am using my grandmother's engagement ring since I was so close to her. So, my local jeweler, custom made me a wedding band using some lose diamonds. I love it! My engagement ring is not too big so the wedding band compliments it very well. Together they are dainty, cute, and girly. Just what I wanted.


My FH's ring is awesome too. I am so pleased he is happy with it too.


Everything is falling into place. I am no longer super stressed. Thank goodness too! The only thing I am worried about is the pre-travel packet I wanted to do. I may not have the time. Last weekend I made our AHR invitations so they'd be done and I wouldn't have to worry about it while we were in Europe. I am also in grad school and have to give an hour and a half lecture Monday.


So..what about the pre-travel packets...I decided to put it on hold until after my presentation. So, next week. And if I cannot do it..I cannot do it. I am not going to worry. I am going with the attitude that I am the only one who really cares. I can email the document if needed with our schedule of events.


I am getting so excited...I'll be on a plane in a little over one month ...going to marry my best friend! :)


Here are my custom/antique rings:

    • 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?
