Final Countdown- 8 days! What I've learned...

Recommended Posts

We fly out in 5 days! It is crazy how fast time flys. I did not expect all of the ups and downs that I have experienced planning this "small' and "simple" destination wedding in Bucerias, Mexico. We have definitely saved some money and spent double. A budget doesn't help when a quote in writing means nothing. I have shed more than my fair share of tears. Especially this week as we lost the villa for our entire family and were forced to have them book their own rooms in hotels. Somehow it all worked out in the same day! I have been surpirsed by how difficult simple things become while dealing with a foreign country. You'd think they want your money?! Google Translator has become my very best friend. I am still waiting on the final rsvp for several guests. And I don't even care at this point. Paper lanterns should arrive by Friday. My fiance and several groomsmen / bridesmaids still haven't altered their suits and dresses. Still don't have belts for the groomsmen or the groom! Still don't have a place for our Rehearsal / Welcome dinner and no one seems to care. As of now the Itinerary that I wanted to send everyone has gone out the window. Guess we're going to have to wing it. Finally came to terms with become a "crazy bride" yesterday while crying and yelling at my fiance on the phone about how he'll never understand why it's important that people know where we're going to dinner ahead of time. No an itinerary is not annal retentive! No matter how low maintenance and relaxed you think that are, planning a destination wedding will test you on levels you've never seen before and bring out the side of you that you swore didn't exist. We signed up for an adventure and boy did we get one. Let's see what happens once we take off.

It will test your patience and make you grow as a person. I've learned to roll with the punch on a whole other level. You just have to go with the flow and know that somehow it will all work out ;)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
