Hey Olga - your wedding is RIGHT behind mine I am so jealous you are having the beach reception - how much are they charging you? They wanted an extra $50/pp on top of the Mac Daddy package price from me ;(
ERIN - Did anyone else get their hair done for your wedding?? If so, was it at the salon at the Del Mar? And how much? They sent me the price list showing $95 for an updo and I about fell off my seat - that is like double what it costs here!!

Congrats on becoming a Mrs. I was only able to see the two pictures that you posted in this forum, and you looked absolutely beautiful. I would love to see some more pictures, if you are willing to share . BTW, itâ€™s so crazy about the best man. I have to say that has to be the shocking story that I have ever heard of. Things like that should only happen in movies, not a few days before your wedding. I donâ€™t know what I would have done, if I were in your place. I probably would have had a breakdown. But I am glad to hear that your â€œperfect dayâ€ was perfect and everything worked out in the end.
My wedding is fast approaching; I can't believe that itâ€™s less than 3 months away. I am getting married at Lindo on June 11, 2011. I am having the ceremony at the Kiosk Gazebo and a beach reception.
As I read in some of the previous posts, I too can relate to the frustration of friends and family backing out of the wedding. As someone mentioned, people donâ€™t realize how they may hurt your feelings. When we initially started to plan our DW, we were realistic and knew that not everyone that we invited would attend. However, some of the No's that we got truly shocked us, well at least ME. First, I found out that my Matron of Honor was not going to be a part of the wedding nor was she attending. And the best part is that I had to get that out of her, because she was waiting to tell me. Thus, I had to ask someone else in my bridal party to now be my Maid of Honor. So as most of you can imagine, it was a pretty crappy situation to be in. Because it now seems that that other person is my â€œsecondâ€ choice. Nevertheless, my sister accepted the duty and really didnâ€™t give me any crap about being my â€œsecondâ€ choice. Then I found out that most of my family (aunt, uncle, and all of my cousins) are not going to be able to make it to the wedding. Each and every excuse seemed to be more ridiculous than the previous one. I should mention that when we started the planning process, everyone was on board, but when it was time for the deposit, the suddenly realized that they cannot attend. It is so frustrating!!!
With the help of my Amazing Fianc©, I decided that I will not let this get me down. I came to a realization that this is about him and I. So if those people do not want to be a part of our â€œspecial dayâ€ then itâ€™s their loss. We will be happy to have our closest friends and those family members who actually want to celebrate with us. With that said we have 24 people (including us) who will be there with us dancing the night away.
Sorry about this long post, its been a while. I guess this was building up for a while.
I look forward to catching up!
