the blood work thing is so that Mexico recognizes it as legal, which we would only need if we put down our actual wedding date there. my solution is to write some other day when we were in the states on the certificate, even if we sign it in Mexico, to have it legally recognized in the US. 

 

it sounds too easy to be true, but that's all it really is, right? you apply for the certificate, wait, and then get married with someone who the state recognizes as ordanied and sign the certificate saying that's what happened.  

 

fingers crossed it all works out (either way, no big deal, we'll just go see the JP after we get back).

YAY everyone...the countdown is on! 5 days woot woot!

 

Well I got my dress last night and let me tell you...its gonna be a b*tch carrying that sucker through the airport!! I am short and its big & long and very awkward to carry. I was walking to my car & was laughing to myself. How does everyone plan on carrying their dress?!?! Are you going to fold it over your arm or hold the bottom up somehow? I will have to figure this out! FI said he will not carry it because it is in a pink travel bag...

lol, My bag is turquoise. I plan to fold the bottom and steam it when I get there. I purchased a personal steamer so it wont be wrinkled.  I'm so excited and it me that I am 13 days/2 weeks away from being a married woman and this planning will be over....

I'm thinking of rolling mine...It is lace and I think if I roll it up quick before the flight and put it in my carry on and then take it out when we arrive a few hours rolled shouldn't hurt too much and I can also steam it when I get there. I'm trying to avoid the race through the airport to make my connecting flight while tripping over my dress!

I will probably drape mine over my arm. It already has lots of rucheing (sp?) and I am definitely getting it steamed when I get there. The only reason I dont want to shove it in to a suite case is 1) it's pretty heavy so if I can carry it on to the plane I dont have to mess with it again until we land in Mexico because we have a nonstop and 2) If they lose our luggage, I can go without some clothes, but not my dress!

Date twins!! Yay Congrats! I have been checking the weather everyday. Still says 60% showers all day :(

 

 

I think I will try to fold my dress over my arm too. Just realized the resort steams the dress for free so I guess I shouldnt worry too much about it. Definitely not throwing it in luggage. As TheWolferts said, you cant go without your dress! My luck they would lose it...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
