Jacki! I'm sure you look great in your dress, it's crunch time ... 2 months away ... once the alterations will be done on it ... you'll see how great it looks .. who needs those last 10 pounds! I'm also going crazy with the last minute details... especially these stupid programs I ordered... i'm racking my brain what to do with them... plus I suck at computers ...so i'm pretty sure they will turn out ugly ... no wonder I didn't do many DIY projects... they would have turned out like a kindergarten project lol

Aww, thanks!  You are right.  Who cares about 10 lbs.  I would be cranky and hungry the whole 2 months, which is no good for anyone.  :)  

 

I suck at crafts and projects and anything creative.  However, do you have a Mac?  I just bought the "Pages" (like Microsoft Word) program, and it basically made my programs for me because they already have tons of templates. If you don't have a Mac, check out vistaprint.com.  They may have some templates you can just use without too much skill.  I totally understand, though.... its things like programs and welcome letters that have given me the most stress!

SOOOO.... the BD shoot was.... "interesting". HA!! The guys professionalism was great, but the setting was NOT. After I left I realized that I had not really gotten a lot of the shots that I wanted. He used a lot of vintage-y type backgrounds because that was how the place was set up. I would have rather posed in front of a blank background- I just didn't know what to ask for as we were doing it. I am excited to see the pics though. He showed me a few as we went along and they really did look great- but through the alcohol haze, I feel the need to see them again!! Haha!! At the end I did have a few specific props that I wanted to use and then we found a great background and I'm sure I will love those pics. I wish I could do it again so I knew what to ask for!! Oh well... now I just have to wait a couple weeks to see them! :)

I had the same feeling about my photoshoot, also I felt that it was not long enough :D. I got my pictures a week ago and I absolutely love them. I ordered a photobook and it was more than enough to feel 22 pages.

I am sure yours will be great

Pages is definitely amazing! It can make anyone who doesn't feel like they're "crafty" feel like a graphic designer! :)

Ladies... I swear right now every single weekend I'm thinking "Holy ****, I have HOW many weeks left??" Somehow the weeks keep flying by and I keep finding myself a week closer to the wedding, with so much left to do! Anyone else have this feeling? Lol!

Morgan, 

 

I had to laugh at how many similarities I have to your post- I had my shoot Wednesday too, got to see some, can't wait two weeks to get them back, and can't wait two months to show him!! My shower is also next month, but the day before yours. I'm doing my bachelorette party the same night, and my pole dancing fun is booked as well! Lol! :D

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
