I can't believe how busy everyone has been and how much everyone has accomplished.
Ndividul- Girl,you have one heck of an amazing talent!!! Every single thing you have shared with us has been impeccable and OMG those welcome passports...out of this world! Cheers on a fabulous job! Your guests are definitely going to feel extra special. How lucky are those that will be attending! I am in absolute awe of the creativity and beautiful projects that both you and Coco have kindly shared with us. It almost makes me wish that I had attempted more DIY projects. However, coming from a person that has difficulty drawing a straight line with a ruler, I'm afraid my projects would look more like kindergarten projects.
LadyDi - Everything that you said about your daughter is true ... she is a great kid. The pictures of your shower are lovely and I love, love, love the idea of the personalized baskets for each holiday. How is the quest for a new bridesmaid dress for her going? If I may make a suggestion, you may want to try David's Bridal or Alfred Angelo. You can find a style that she feels confident in and then order in about every color. If she likes more "bling" you can always add a jeweled brooch or decorated lace to take things up a notch.
Kris10kay - You look amazing in your dress! Best wishes for the wedding that you have dreamt about and envisioned for so long. Please don't forget to check in on us after your return. I'm sure you'll have some good advice to share.
ChipmunkRN - Kudos on your passport invitations! They turned out perfect! My only question ... with as busy as you have been, when did you find time to complete this project???
P.S.-Check your PM messages when get a moment.
Coco - Congratulations on the new addition to the family! If you haven't done so already, check out Pet Edge for stuff for him. - Not that he needs anymore of anything, but it may save you a few bucks because from what I can tell Mr. Cesar is gonna be one spoiled puppy dog. He is too cute! My parents also have a boxer, Sophie. She's always been a great family dog with the most wonderful temperament. I know you will not regret your decision. The only negative thing that I can say about this breed, if you haven't encountered it already, is their flatulence problem. Lol! Unfortunately they don't outgrow this one, but the positives so outweigh this negative.
Lastly, I am happy to report that last Wednesday I received the phone call from Ivis Hitchcock that I have been anxiously awaiting for ..... my locations have finally been confirmed.
My wedding will take place in the Toucan Gazebo, the cocktail hour on the Venado Terrace, and the reception dinner on the Caribbean Terrace. Apparently from what I was told the hold up occurred because of miscommunication between Miami and onsite coordinators in Cancun. Iliana Montebruck, who is located in Cancun had told me back in September that the Toucan Gazebo was indeed confirmed for me, but that she could not confirm only request the Toucan Terrace and the Caribbean Terrace which I was also asking for. So I never really worried about the ceremony location just the ones for the cocktail hour and reception. Thank goodness, I kept that email because Ivis told me that only the Bugambilia Gazebo and the chapel would be available. I was ok with the chapel but the other gazebo would have been way on the other side of the resort. Because I had the email, they did honor the Toucan Gazebo. So my best advice to future brides is to get everything in writing!
