WOW! sounds like so much fun. Cant wait to see your pics when you get back!

 

I see your dilema for packing. just remember that if you go over a certain weight on your luggage they will put it in cargo (scary) you dont want your suitcase seperated so check that with your air line :)

 

and pack outfits that can be multipurpose....like a black dress that you can wear again with a shirt over top and black pants that go with everything :)

 

Good luck!

I am having my exams + all final assignments next week, starting new job and packing for it all!!!!

I feel slightly panicked to say at least!

We are going on cruise for 7 days before wedding, then going to jamaica for 7 days, 2 days in Miami, and we are going to his parents in Cape Breton, at least we won't have to bring winter cloth, because his brother will drive to Cape Breton and take our winter cloth with him :D 

Because of so much travel we will do and so much flights and transfers I can't really deal with too much luggage :( So i hope to have 1 luggage, 1 carry on and back pack....

Wish me luck to say sane till next Friday!

Hi cecilia,

 

I also contemplated many resorts and wanted to stick to 1200$ especially for our guests. I got the Majestic for 1300$ in December, that is why i'm surprised that you didn't get a better price for june... i'm in the high season that is why it's more expensive .. I guess it all depends from where you leave?

I'm feeling very discouraged at the moment because I've fallen in love with a hotel that is out of our price range hissyfit.gif   I'm really in love with Majestic Colonial. But for our June wedding the best price I can find is $1365 and we're trying to stay as close as possible to $1200. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I win the lottery but I don't think it's going to happen. Time for a reality check. Don't you just hate those.

 

So....For all of you who have already picked your hotel. Which hotel did you pick and why?



I' ve been with my fiancé for 10  years too .. and he didn't see the need to have a wedding band...so I had to buy my own sad.gif but i'm happy I did, it will accentuate the engagement ring nicely.

OMG Kat, can't believe you are leaving in 7 days, that's so exciting!!!!! At least you have some time to "practice packing", although I'm sure it's hard to figure out what to leave behind ;)

At home now so heres a pic of the ring so you can see how similar the e ring is and really does need two bands to enhance it just that much more.  Oh and don't mind the top band its a little off and didn't notice until I put up this massive picture ( anyone know how to make them smaller??)

I'm gonna try to post a pic from my phone have no idea if this will work

You can solder your rings together, so they will be always aligned properly

Just in case you will wear your all 3 rings together all the time :D

Thanks Janet! I think I will go with the Crest strips. How long do the effects last for? DO they really last 10 months? I am trying to decide how far before our wedding I should use them.

I have done them all. I have a thing about white teeth LOL

 

I did the whitening professionally...IMO waste of money and also kind of disgusting! you get crazy saliva build up in your mouth and it doesnt taste very good because of the gel and if you have a sensitive gag reflex you will not enjoy this at all....it was a very very long hour!!!! AND i didnt get much whiter teeth

 

I have use white strips....LOVE them. They work. I have done the 3, 7 and 14 day treatments. The 3 day is ok and the 7 and 14 work great but you have to follow the instructions and recommendations for use. If you put the strip on your teeth too low all the time you will end up with a line across the top of your teeth from the shade difference. so just be careful how you apply them. They are great though beacuse you can still talk and do what you have to do.

 

The trays/moulds are good as well. I got better results from the strips though. The trays are a pain cause you cant talk and they arent that comfortable so you just want to get it over with. But they will cover all of your teeth so you dont have to worry about how you apply it

 

ALL teeth whiteners can cause sensitivity so if you are prone to this then you will likely experience it from any of the whiteners.

 

With the strips i do the 7 day treatment and i re-do this every 10 months approx. I am not a big coffee and wine drinker though and i dont smoke. But i am a tea drinker and tea can discolor your teeth as well.

 

Hope that helps :)

I bought a 3 sashes from Tanis Emmett on Etsy.  I bought one that was already made and she designed two others for my bridesmaids in the colours I wanted.  They turned out beautifully.  Her prices are reasonable too.  I am not sure if she has very many sashes posted for sale, but she can make anything you want.  She also makes jewelry and does wedding dress alterations.  I have bought all my wedding jewelry from her and my bridesmaids.  She is truly amazing.  If you want pics, let me know and I can send you a few.

I've been looking on etsy but haven't found one that I love yet. They all seem to big or too detailed.

I'm tempted to try to make one myself but i really don't want to add another thing to my To-Do list!

I really want one like the one in the picture below but red to match my BMs.

It depends on your lifestyle...i'm not a coffee drinker or wine drinker which would have the biggest impact on how long the results will last. I also brush my teeth 3 to 4  times a day and use whitening toothpaste when i brush. My whitening (at their whitest) lasts about 6 months but they are still pretty white until about 10 and it really needs to be done again then :) everyone is different :)

 

I suggest trying the strips now and see how you like the results and also in case it makes your teeth super sensitive, you dont want to whiten right before you leave and have super sensitive teeth your whole trip. If your teeth are not sensitive but you drink a lot of coffee and wine you could always do the 3 day kit a week before you go to touch up on the white :)
