so its funny I just found this thread. Went home to my moms this weekend and she showed me the cake serving set and the toasting flutes that she bought for FI and I for the wedding. I felt like such a jerk, but I was like "MOM! How are we going to get those down south?" Luckily I didnt hurt her feelings too much, we both laughed because she said, I dont know, i was going to give them to you to bring down. I talked her into returning them or giving them to someone else for their wedding.
Its sooo not worth the hassle. (plus they were VERY frufru-shishi.... not my style at ALL) I like to keep it simple, thats why we HAD the destination wedding to begin with!
Unfortunately i didnt know how to break it to her that a white satin wedding album is not really my style either. sooooo I will have to bite the bullet on that one. But seriously, white satin??? will people need to wear gloves to look at our wedding album???? I mentioned that it would be hard to keep clean and that it would get dusty, and she told me that I had to keep it in the box????? OR i could wash it. How does one wash a photoalbum??? LOL. gotta love mom-logic!
