We're on our way to Jamaica tomorrow!!!  pinkie.gif

 

(Don't usually use animated emoticons, but that about sums up how I feel right now :))

 

Thanks to all who've helped, advised, brainstormed, reassured, laughed with me, cried with me, listened patiently while I ranted (just once...I think? lol) and of course shared invaluable info/photos/reviews/menus/maps/etc, etc! There's no WAY we could've planned our wedding without your help. 

 

I'll be back in awhile (hopefully before the holidays hit full swing) to post feedback and photos, and of course to continue to pay it forward to all the brides still in the planning stages. 

What would we do without each other and this forum?? :)

 

Take care, and please send good wedding karma (and weather!) our way!

So I had some bad news and some good news over the weekend I wanted to share, and then I wanted some help from you guys.

 

Bad News:

- My Matron of Honor and my all time best friend got pregnant a few months ago and won't be able to travel to my wedding. She is like my sister and I was devastated to find out she could not make it to my wedding. She lives in Dubai so I can't really spend time with her before hand so poopy! She will be in her 40th week of pregnancy the week of my wedding so it definitely was not going to happen. However, I was hoping my other long time best friend who also lives in Dubai was going to make it to the wedding to make up for my MOH.

 

Bad News 2:

This weekend, my other long time friend just told me the news that she won't make it either. She works as a flight attendant and she could not get the time off for my wedding through the airline she works for! I knew there was a 50/50 chance she would make it, but I was hopeful that it would all work out. Unfortunately it didn't and now my second MOH is out of the picture. Reall bummed but with these things, it's all out of my control. Expected with destination weddings.

 

Good news!

My Matron of Honor will be coming to Canada to celebrate the bridal shower festivities in February which I am glad about because I get to spend quality time with her and we can do some wedding projects together.

 

And finally, I couldn't choose any of the other girls in my bridal party to be my MOH because I just didn't feel right about it. Don't get me wrong, they are all fabulous girls and I love them, but I feel like I couldn't replace my original MOH since I had known her for a long long time (since we were 2!). MY next best alternative, was my other best friend whom I have known for almost 16 years...thing is- he is a guy! So I asked him if he would do me the honour of being my "Man of Honor" and he said YES! As if everything else about our wedding couldn't get any more untraditional and unique!

 

So now...I don't know what to gift his as my ManOH gift! I got flower purses for the girls instead of bouquets, and I also got them girlie wineglasses and made them shirts for getting ready that say "Bridesmaids" on them. I was thinking of getting him a personalized shot glass and maybe a shirt....but is there anything else unique and different out there that I can get for him that you ladies can think of?

 

Let me know!

 

Phew! It's been an emotional rollercoaster thus far....but I am confident everything will work out and be amazing on the day of the wedding!

You could always buy him some awesome cufflinks! Are your girls carrying the purses down the aisle? I saw on etsy a seller that makes men's leather shaving bags that are monogrammed. They are super nice (probably getting them for our groomsmen as we got the girls cosmetic bags) but its not something to walk down the aisle with lol

cufflinks would be nice but we aren't doing suits since it's a beach wedding. I some cool ones but meh...

 

Yes the girls are carrying the purses down the aisle. I was thinking to just get him some kind of boutinierre but that wouldn't be his gift. I dunno about the shaving bag...he does travel alot and I'm sure he has one already. Good ideas, but I don't know how I feel about those for him specifically.

What about something destination themed, like an embroidered Beach Towel? Travel mug? Baseball cap? floatie?

We ordered our serving set and champagne flutes from them as well as personalized napkins and everything is PERFECT! They are great to work with and our stuff was engraved and personalized and shipped out to us in no time!

Awesome Thanks! :)

    • 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.
