That is kind of a bittersweet situation for you!  So exciting to have a little niece or nephew, but a total bummer that they can't come now!!!  :(  I am really close with all my sibs, so I would be sad if they couldn't be at my wedding.  At least it's a great reason to miss your wedding!  I am sure they are bummed too!

Thanks ladies! It's definitely bittersweet. But like you all said, they have a special reason for not going. It will definitely be strange not having at least my big bro with me.

OK, I'm finally motivated to post what I'm working on.  I'm on a super tight budget, so I'm not doing a whole lot of things like you girls.  Sorry, no OOT bags, guests.  embarrest.gif  Here's what I've got so far:

 

Save the Date magnets--Check, using pic we took from our balcony when we were there in March this year.

Photography--Booked, Photos in Cancun

 

Wedding Dress, shoes, jewelry, hair accessories--check, in my possession.  I look awful in this pic, though.  It needs to be pressed when we get down there.

WEDDING DRESS.JPG

 

*MOH dress and pants for BM--check, still need matching shirt for him.

*FI pants--check, but still  need to order his shirt (Need my bank account to catch up with spending.  Haha!)

*Wedding Rings--shopping for next weekend.

*Decorations for Tables--check

*Cake Topper, serving set, toasting flutes--check

*Flights and Room reservations, hair/makeup appointments--Booked

*Wedding Garter--check, Colts theme--FI will love it

*Flower girl baskets and petals--check

*Gifts for MOH/BM--check

*Invitations--check, super cheap.  Found them at Jo Ann's for $4 clearance, Score!

*Wedding favors--check, my BM is screen printing custom koozies for us

 

Soooooooo....that was a lot.  I will refrain from posting that much in the future!  Haha!  I think I'm in pretty good shape.  I feel like I'm forgetting something that I need, though.

I really can't decide which restaurant to book our reception at.  Does anyone know if we would be able to do our first dance there?  Would we be allowed to plug in an IPOD or anything?

Love the magnets!  The good thing about destination weddings is that no one expects OOT bags and the like. So no worries!

Awe congrats on becoming an Aunite!  Besides have a wonderful addition to the family, you know that your brother and sister-in-law would have been there for your BIG day. I agree with Chelsea in that you should definitely give them an OOT bag and while you are at it through a little bib in there....;-)

    • 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?
