My guests have had almost 2 yrs!!! I dont guve a crap either, im like yess less people! Lol my fiance has joked when they complain, just ask them if on their invite, they got a gold star? No, oh well you're not being forced to go, dont fret! Lol smh theres a reason why im marrying him
This must be the week of the wedding guests asshholes. I'm goungr through same damn thing. Plus now they are pissed because they can't understand that ud u stay at resort other than where we are, you must pay day pass. I'm at same point. If u come you come if yku don't you don't. But stop pining and whining about it already. I politely said we will be very happy to havd u if u can make it but understand if you cannot. And for all tge negative nillies I say. "While your opinion is greatly appreciated, I'm gonna need you to know it is not needed"

Just wanted to get your girls opinion, I'd ask my BM's but it's a gift for them so I want it to be a surprise and I need some feedback!


I was going to give them each a clutch which will be in my wedding colors, I'm waiting on the swatch samples to come in



and in each clutch I was going to put a pair of earrings:



What do you all think?  I will probably also add necklaces into the clutches but haven't found any I love yet...

I love love them both!!  Super Pretty

It is Sooooooooo much easier to click click click... I say stick with that!!!!

Next question/ Statement: I DID NOT know that bed, bath and beyond allows you to use expired coupons!!!! I think I might get my travel stuff for the welcome bags from there. Was anybody else aware of this?


Lastly: There are a lot of sales on theknot.com, exclusive weddings, etc.  For my gifts to my bridesmaids, I want to do silk robes, a cosmetic bag, and a nice tote bag. What are your suggestions for gifts?


(As you can see, I am off today and I am spending it shopping  woot.gif)

I did know about BB&B - I recently used a coupon that expired in 2008 - not even kidding!!


However, I just recently found out that Bath and Body Works takes their coupons up to 3 days before and 3 days after their issued dates

Sarong would be my pick

So, I decided to DIY my own invites so I printed all the inside pages already *yay* and than I went to Michael's to price card stock paper (40% off coupon starts sunday). I found this textured card stock, 40 sheets for $3.99 and can use the coupon!! And than while I was there I saw those triangle banners.....12 triangles for $1.40 so I bought them, they're white and I'm going to write out "Thank you" and use them for our engagement phone shoot (which we are getting done on the beach in FL for $30, win!) and also take them for the wedding....


Than I went online.....downfall!! LOL I had 30 free prints and free shipping for snapfish, so I used that to print our engagement party pictures! Than on to GNC to get my total lean shakes, buy one get one 1/2 off! (gotta fit in that damn dress!), ordered my envelopes for my invitations!!!!, ordered waterproof labels & stickers so I can print them and put on tumblers and stuff, and than I did the groupon for vistaprint and got 4 custom shirts for a total of $17. LOL.....now time to put the card away and step away from the order now button....woot2.gif

That is some good shopping!!


I just remembered another note about coupons...... Michael's and AC Moore will take each other's 40 and 50 % off one item coupons (they do not take the ones that are like 20 or 25% off the whole purchase)  and some locations will take one of each in the same transaction.... just ask before you shop so you know if you can get two big tickets items that trip... I have done it before where I had a 50% off Michael's and a 40% Ac Moore in the same transaction!!

So my color scheme for the wedding is gray and yellow. My favorite color is yellow; it makes me happy, and it's bright and i just love it haha.

Anyway, I can't decide if I want my bridesmaids to wear yellow dresses, or gray dresses. I love the gray look with bright yellow flowers. But then again I really like the look of yellow dresses with my white dress and the gray casual look the guys will be wearing.


What do you all think I should do?


I think you can't go wrong either way... Something like Yellow dresses with grey sashes & grey suits with yellow ties would be nice... my only thought about yellow dresses is how it looks on all your girls. I love yellow but have a hard time wearing it.. its definatiley not a color everyone can pull off... although everyone might have nice tans so it might not matter haha  ..

how do I politely tell people to keep their opinions about "how expensive" the air/hotel packages to themselves. like $1500 for a week is not bad at all. can I just tell them to stfu and stay home if they. think its too much? I just don't want to hear it, I take it personally like they're attacking my wedding. meanwhile we are still too far out for accurate pricing!

I would just say.. yeah it is a lot of money - I understand if you can't make it ... I knew that going into this not everyone would be able t o come to my DREAM wedding!!!!!

You (in a sweet voice): I'm so sorry that you won't get to join us for our special day. We would love to have you, but understand that only the closest family and friends will be making the effort to come. We'll miss you!

or this works : )

Okay AND someone asked about paying for accessories on top of buying dresses... I thought I marked it to respond to but I guess I didn't.... 



Do you care if they have matching accessories?  If yes - then I would say buy them for everyone.... if no - they I would say just let them know they can wear/no wear whatever accessories they want.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
