    Glad to hear your feeling better about things!  I'm thinking about things the same way.  At the end of the day, it's all about our union anyway, so we're not letting them rain on our parade.  I'm getting very excited too!  I have a lot to do though still, but I feel like I'm not too behind.  I went for my first fitting last week and that really got me excited. 

     

    I'm counting down the days!

    I am sorry to hear that you are going through this as well!!!  It is a bummer and it does severely hurt feelings!!!

      So yesterday 1 pair of my son's shoes came in and today the other.  Either one of these will be used for his to wear during the wedding ceremony.  I love my son to pieces and he is my 1 and only (I can not bare anymore children), so we got a dog LOL  In either case, I can't do frilly stuff that mom's would do for their daughters, so I had to get his shoes to match in color to mine. 

       

      Mine: Two Lips by Christian Louboutin

      His:  1st shoe by Circa (he loves this style of shoe, he's my skateboarding scientist ;) 2nd is a shot out to FI & I, we love our Old School Hip Hop and R&B (this is the era that we grew up in).  "My Adidas" by Run DMC

      In addition, he will rock the blue tie (below), along with the other groomsmen.  FI & the best man will rock the pink & blue.

      Last but not least, one of my flower girls mom has a side business at Stella & Dot, so these little bracelets were purchased from her and will be given to our flower girls on the wedding day.  The rings (flower) are still on back order

          15 days until we depart and 19 before the "I DO's"   so exciting.  I'll finish packing this week to weekend. Wednesday my braces come off and I get my retainer.... YAY!  a Friday-Sunday I'll run around with my family so they can get their accessories... and I need to make a VS run shhhhhh......    on the 11th I will have my teeth whitened, last day of work is on the 12th and hair done on the 13th (my locstress is coming to Mexico) so she will do everything on the 13th to make it easy and quick on the wedding day.  On the 16th, I will print our boarding passes, take my Cesar to the Philadelphia Pet Hotel & Villas at 10am and then pick up my dress at 1pm.. and we leave on the 17th at 8:25 am... Whew.... 

           

          Anyway, I promise to take as many pictures as humanily possible in the midst of it all.  I come back on the 25th but won't be home home until the 27th.  At that time I will jump on here and tell you all that I can in an informal manner while putting the final thread together which will include pictures and templates.  In the mean time, I have my pre-planning thread up at

           

          http://www.bestdesti...d-picture-heavy

           

          I'll answer as many questions as I can before I depart.. and definitely when I return.

           

          Happy Planning Ladies and for some I'll see you soon.

            Congrats to Alaharri, LadiDi, and krsmith on becoming MRS, too (and if I've forgotten anyone, my apologies)!!  And best wishes to Coconoir, as you're packing and putting together the last few things before your wedding!  I know I've said this a bunch, but you all are so amazing and supportive.  It's mostly because of you all that we had the wedding of our dreams!!

             

            So pleased to report that everything was absolutely beautiful and perfect. I'm working on a DIY planning thread (already posted some entries - about 15 more to go, LOL).  Plus, I just finished my MP Review:

              Hi AlmostMrsRJF

              I emailed her and heard back on (fri) 30th.  I just want to make sure my ceremony and reception locations were booked and I did ask some other questions. She said Karlena was my coordinator (I think) and that she needed my room list, which I am having my TA send me this week.

              She didnt answer any of my questions, but once she has my list I guess she can. Im not really sure who she works for (Miami or Moon Palace directly) and Im not stressing too much since Im not absolutly sure what im doing for other events.

              Hopefully you hear from her soon.

                Has anyone rented tiki torches from Deco Cancun? How much were they? I'm also going to email Katie but thought I'd ask here too.

                  With 15 days to go, I am so ecstatic to report that all bags wedding & OOT related are packed. Each bag has their own tag which correlates to my spreadsheet of what's in them. No I'm not that Type A when it comes to planning....on second thought lol. But seriously, I have a few BMs taking bags so I want to know who has what since they are arriving 2 days after us. The last bag (candy & shot glasses) are waiting FI's transport to the basement where all the other bags are (its easier this way since well be loading up & leaving via the garage. Now ALL of my attention can truly go towards clothing....for myself & the lil man as FI states "you know I'm packing last minute right" gotta love him... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

                      Thanks coco.  I remember reading your posts months back.  You are full of info..  Will get onto this tmrw.  Anyway I have had one busy day.  I have 4 year old boy girl twins and a 6 year old daughter.  I have let them play in the garden all day with friends.  While they kept themselves entertained, I thought I would crack on with some outstanding DIY tasks for the wedding.  They where rotten by the end of it.  But got the following done.  Thank god to ebay and vistaprint!

                       

                      WELCOME PACKS!

                       



                      have either of you thought of using Zuniga who is the inhouse decor people for MP?? there cheaper than the colin cowie collection tables!

                       



                       



                       

                      Congratulations!  Can't wait to hear all about it!

                      So we had our ceremony on Friday (still down here until Thursday) and what everyone says is true...don't worry about things so much on the front end. From the spa services to the wedding planning to the ceremony, everything has been beyond perfect!

                       

                      I will write a long review when I return..happy planning guys and try to relax, it all works out!



                       

                      I'll be reading this one today!  Thanks for sharing!

                      Here's the link

                      So my wedding went off wonderfully on Sat. I am not Mrs. Richardson. Christina the wedding coordinator on site is amazing. She is totally organized and knows what she is doing. Will write a full review when we get back but wanted to update any brides who are coming soon that the Disco is closed for repairs with an unknown date to reopen. We had planned for the wedding group to party there but they closed it the night before. So we ended up partying with Janel's wedding party in the Sunrise lobby where they had music and dancing so it all worked out. :) Its been a wonderful experiance, We upgraded our room to the concierge level this trip and I would definatly recommend it. They did so many extra touches, 3 times a day I would come into my room with a new surprise! It was great!! Ok back to my vacation.
