Well I only invited 18 people (9 couples)

 

The only two that might not come are my sisters (which is 1 couple)

 

I am thinking about inviting one of his aunts (she probably wont come and has no +1 but she is is godmother .. so idk) and one of my aunt and uncles (this is something I am really not sure about doing... *sigh*)

To make it even worse.. (I think I have mentioned before that I am sending little packages ever 3 months up to two weeks before departure plus a couple of things while in St. Lucia) 

 

This is my plan. . . 

 

Things I'm Sending to each couple

 

Jul '13 - Save the Dates

Oct '13 - Invitations

Jan '14 - Accessories  - (Ties and Flower Hair Clips -- with dress code guidelines)

Apr '14 - Passport Reminders (with passport covers and luggage tags)

Jul '14 - St. Lucia Info Package (hoping to find some brochures as well as well as a list of good to know things I have found in researching St. Lucia)

Oct '14 - Pre-Departure Gifts (I can put a list together if anyone would like - it's not too long)

 

------------

 

Things I'm giving to each couple or person while in St. Lucia

 

The Day they Arrive - Welcome Bags (Oy!)

Day of Wedding - Ceremony Items (I can make a list.. it is short!)

Reception Dinner - Favors (at some point I want to do something with just the parents to give them their extra gift)

The Day they Leave - Departure Bags (I can make a list... it is also short!)

 

Ummm I think (HOPE) that is everything embarrest.gif

Ask your resort for little brochures on the place. My TA did and they sent me a HUGE box of booklets, flyers, and even spa bath balls. I'm giving them out at our engagement party on Saturday night

I'm gonna be honest. Bon bons are not the problem. Lol

 

I get home from work after a crap day of dealing with whiny passengers , their kids, the pilots, my crazy coworkers, delays, all I want to do is down a bottle of wine. Lol.

 

They say a glass is good for you but I like big glasses. LmAo

 

Now with this wedding stress (where the hell is all this money going to come from) I might move on to scotch

Totally feel you

I think I already mentioned to her that I might want some... I will defiantly follow up about getting them.    That's cute she added spa bath balls :)

Speaking of engagement parties. I have a ???????? Is everyone having one or has had one already? Everyone keeps asking me. When's the engagement party ? and I keep thinking when the hell are you throwing me one. WTH? Did everyone pay for their own engagement party on top of the wedding? It seems one of my already married with 10 kids that I have to buy gifts for every Xmas and birthday should be volunteering. Heheheheh. Or am I off here? Who generally hosts this shindig ?

We haven't announced our engagement to anyone (well almost anyone) out side those invited... and those invited live all over the place so I highly doubt that we will have one.   I'm not sure I will even have a shower. . .   if someone happens to throw any or all of these for me.. cool!  if not I really don't care.

    • 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.
