        Good luck with the rest of your packing!  It will all come together in the end!  I had my FI weight every single suitcase multiple times just to be sure!  I would hate to have to repack or rearrange at the airport! I always feel awful for those people!

         

        Safe travels and see ya on the beach! :)

            Hey ladies!

             

            So I just started packing the other day and so far have on extra large bag packed with fans and OOT bags, another large bag filled with wedding day decor and I have my bridesmaids coming over on Saturday with extra luggage to put the rest of the OOT bags and all my DIY crafts in. I am thinking there will be 5 wedding bags in total plus FI and my clothes... wowza!

             

            I am going on a MIL rant here so beware:

            We had our legal ceremony last weekend and it was a bit of a gong show... We had originally only invited my MOH and Colin's BM (plus spouses as BM lives out of town), then my brother was unable to come to our Mexico wedding and we are close so I invited him and my SIL. Well that night my MOH (sister) shows up with gifts in hand, beautiful cupcakes and cards from MIL and she explains how upset she is that she wasn't invited, even though we told her a million times that we didn't invite any of them because we are not considering it anything but legalities etc. She didn't get that at all and considered it our wedding and was p*ssed to not be invited. Colin and I knew this was the biggest guilt trip ever (I asked MOH if MIL was all dressed up and she said yes, I knew she would play this card....) so at the last minute we just decided to invite her or else we'd hear about it for the rest of our lives. Then, I figured, well if she's coming then my parents are certainly coming (they were very understanding and respectful of our wishes in the first place), so I called them about half an hour before the ceremony was about to begin and of course they are out at the farm 45 minutes away about to head in (they were flying back to Arizona at 3am that night so were staying at my sisters that night).

            When MIL arrived she immediately says "Oh, I thought this was supposed to be all casual and it wasn't important!?" in a snarky manner (I was wearing a white cocktail dress and colin jeans and a button up linen shirt). She immediately starts taking control of the entire situation, pretty much playing hostess. She threw our dogs in the room so they wouldn't be out (the main reason why we had it at our house was so our animals could be there) then she just kept hugging us and saying how proud she was of us and how important today was. I kept saying "this is NOT our wedding day, its legalities", to which her and husband replied, "nope this is it!". I was sooooo annoyed... so the wine kept flowing. We ended up having the ceremony about 25 minutes late (and a $50 tip to the EXTREMELY impatient officiant). I had my back to everyone throughout the ceremony and thank goodness because when I turned around she'd been crying the entire time. Oh, and I definitely let the dogs out for the ceremony, my one younger one was panting and so excited through the entire thing that some people had a hard time hearing us (he's too cute!).

            After that we had made supper for 8 of us (the original four plus Colin and I and two of Colin's friends we invited for supper as we don't see them often) and ended up having to feed 12 people, luckily we made lots!

            THEN we went to go watch Colin's brothers band play that night at a local bar and she kept running around and saying it was our wedding night (she even told the bouncer!). Everyone was hugging us and saying congrats. Some people were saying congrats before she had even saw them that night, she said she told a "few people" about it that day.

            The next day all I could do was laugh about the ridiculousness of it all. All in all we ended up having a fun night but we were annoyed that they didn't respect our wishes and pretty much bombed our night. I think in the end it did make us realize that anything with the W word in it is important for family (even sometimes more than you) and just take the punches as they come with a smile on your face.

            Here are some pics of that night:

            When we got home that night, BM and his wife were staying over so we had him try on his outfit from studiosuits and it didn't fit at all! It was sooooo short, I'm talking belly-shirt style, if he lifted his arms it went up to his chest. The pants were fine but the shirt had clearly been either measured wrong (front length) or entered onto the site wrong. Luckily he is the best man so he does not need to match the other groomsmen so we are going to try to find him a shirt in Mexico to either match Colin or different. It's sooo hard to find linen shirts up here this time of year so Mexico is our best bet. The next day we got all of the groomsmen to try theirs on to make sure they fit, everyone's was fine except Colin's brothers who's was also short (still manageable I think) so he is taking it to a seamstress and making it as long as possible but I'd imagine it will still be much shorter than the rest of the guys. His pants were also too long so he is getting them hemmed.

             

            Other than these couple of things everything has been going well and we are just about ready to leave in 9 days!! eeek!

            I had my extensions put in on Saturday and they look amazing! I have a pedi on saturday with my MOH and then the girls are coming over to help pack and to make fun outfits for the plane ride!

             

            Happy planning all!

              mllek... that is too funny (to me) about the MIL. We are having our legal ceremony this friday and our two witnesses, my BM and fiance's cousin, are sworn to secrecy. We already knew the MIL would FREAK, and I'm talking lose it not come to the wedding freak, if she knew we were "legally" married here without her. She does live 8 hours away from us so I'm not too worried about her finding out. We've been telling her we are going to be legally married down there and know she won't know the difference. LOL I hate lying, but it was just not worth it to tell her. We are totally wearing jeans and t-shirt and not having a dinner or anything after lol... purely legal... that's all :) lol

                Quick chuckle for your morning ladies: So I've been using a home bleaching kit for my teeth and in order to not ruin the results I decided this morning to start drinking my coffee through a straw. FYI: delivering a shot of scalding hot fluid directly to the back of your throat might make you convulsively spit your latte all over your table at Starbucks shocking the mother with three children beside you and offending the barrista who made it
