    Hi Viki,

     

    That will go soooo quickly.  Not quick enough I know.  We still have a whopping 59 !!
     

    Not long til you can pick up your dress.  I'm sure they'll let you take pics now.  Mine wouldn't let me either.  Mine isn't due in until 1st July which is worrying me a little just in case it's late for some reason.  It only leaves me one month to have 2 fittings & for them to make any alterations.    Your girls day / night sounds brilliant.  You'll have a great time.

     

    I'm feeling absolutely shattered at the moment.  Just started a new job with a massive learning curve & they have me on a pretty intense induction week.  I'm really going to need the break.  Only problem is that because I havent been there long enough to accrue much holiday & when we get back I will only have half a day left to take until the end of the year.  Hopefully the high of the whole thing will see me through to January! 

     

    We finally have had 2 days of good weather so I'm hoping the sun stays out for the weekend.  Have a great one whatever you're up to.

     

    Talk soon.

    Sorry Alex, I didn't mean to scare you lol, but wanted to get it to you.  I pick up the dress around the 17th of this month.  They may let me take pictures now since I have paid for it but they wouldn't before.  I will get a pic up one way or the other.  For our girls day/night we are having massages, mani/pedis and then out on the town for drinks, drinks, oh and more drinks hahaha.  We are renting a hotel room downtown so no worries about driving :)  Can't wait!!!

     

    Heather, so glad you had a wonderful time.  Alex and I are waiting patiently, well not so patiently, for our turn :)  How was the photography?  Can't wait to see the pictures!!

      Hi Alex, I hope the job is going better and you are less stressed.  Weather here is still quite warm and humid - lots of evening thunder storms which is typical this time of year.  My oldest graduated high school on Wednesday and he immediately thought he was grown and decided to stay out all night with no word to his mum.  He found out that you can still get grounded over the age of 18 LOL.  We have been quite busy though.  It is certainly making the time fly by.  I can't wait for it to get here but then don't want it to be over too fast either.  Picking up my dress in a little over a week.  Excited to put it on again :)

       

      Sarah should be back home by now - I'm so excited to hear how everything went for her.  I just want it to get here and then I want time to stand still.

        Hi Viki,

         

        Yes, the job's got much better thanks.  I'm starting to feel a little less like the newbie.  Glad to hear you're still having good weather.  Unfortunately the same cant be said over here.  Rain & wind almost every day.  

         

        I did chuckle when I read about your son staying out all night & was grounded.  Good on you.  They do like to push their luck.

         

        How exciting getting your dress.  Are you having it packed in one of those travel boxes you can take on the aircraft with you?   We haven't done any wedding stuff for what seems ages.  We really need to sort out music out.  I'm hoping it wont take too long. 

         

        Re Sarah, me too.  I cant wait to hear how it all went & see the pics.  I do hope she comes back onto the site. 

         

        Well, bedtime for me.  Have a great weekend. 

         

        Talk soon. 

        Alex

              Alex:  I was just planning on hanging it on the plane in the garment bag.  Don't know anything about the travel box.  Do you think that would be better???  Still trying to decide on whether or not to wear a veil though.  I know my fiance would like me to wear one.  Are you wearing a veil?

               

              We picked up our wedding rings this weekend and just waiting on passports to come in.  Seems to be taking forever ... hmmmm.  I need to check on that.  I keep having this feeling like I am forgetting something...I know these next few weeks are going to fly by.

                    QUESTION TO ALL ANTIGUA BRIDES ... DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THEY WILL STEAM YOUR WEDDING DRESS UPON ARRIVAL?  HAS ANYONE HAD ANY ISSUES WITH TRAVELING ON THE PLANE WITH THE DRESS IN THE GARMENT BAG?

                     

                    Alex thanks for the heads up.  I researched on line the dress box you mentioned and found a site that said in the old days you could hang your dress up but not all airlines let you do that anymore.  Didn't even think about it.  Are you boxing your dress?  There is no way I am checking it with my checked luggage cuz I just know it will get lost and then what :(

                      Viki,

                       Yes, they will.  Arrange it with the wedding department and they will deliver it back to your room.  It was no problem.
