    So jealous of all your bachelorette parties!  I wish I had one, but my MOH (who is my cousin) doesn't really know any of my friends and everyone is out of state (they in NYC and Cali) and me in DC.  I just opted not to do it. 

     

    I'm an April bride but this forum has by far helped me the most in my planning journey.  Sharing ideas and support and keeping it active!  I leave in the morning for Cayman and I'm so excited that the time is finally here! I'll be back to report on my experience!

      I am also so completely jealous of all the stag parties!!! I only have two bridesmaids one of which is in another province so I also opted out of having a stagette. Same thing with a bridal shower. Deep down I wish someone threw me one but it never happened :( oh well I leave in just over 2 weeks!!!!! It's definately crunch time. My last day of work is next Saturday (yay!) and I only work two days this week so I'm beyond being distracted....

Ceremony, dinner and reception! Of course beauty stuff week that we leave (eyebrows, nails, waxing) Parents gifts (?????) (not sure if we are going to buy gifts or just pay for a nice dinner and a framed wedding pic after) Ummm I'm sure there's more

                    Outsource to your FI ;) We've gotten so much more accomplished now that we broke it down by date, and assigned who has what (the initials). That way we're each accountable for certain things. Everyone keeps asking if we're excited to get married. I'm like, "Um yeah, but at this point I'm really excited to go on vacation!!"

                      Thats a great idea, I am doing it as we speak, That is SO true! Work threw me a shower yesterday and everyone was asking if I was excited and I replied with the same exact thing, for a vacation!!! Plus I have not taken this many days in a row off ever! LY I saved most my vacay days to carry over so I can take 2 1/2 weeks for wedding and 2 1/2 for HM (later this year).
