    This is also why I didn't have ours in Puerto Rico... My FI is Peurto Rician and has a lot of family there....  I thought at first it would be a great idea since there is a reason to choose PR but then I was like WAIT the whole friggen island will show up.. hahaha

      My mom doesn't care, neither does my dad. It's his side! Like they just have to invite everyone to make the numbers even. Sorry, my family is big but not a lot of invites went out to them. I'm not even inviting all of my family from DR!!! LOL my friend did the worst thing possible...decide to have her wedding in Jamaica! and her list is at like 200!!!! No way, I hope everyone says DR in March is too expensive and If I have between 30-50, honestly I will be happy!

        Rayn email me this and your list..Thanks...marywylie67@yahoo.com....

        Okay - Seriously if I post my Welcome Bags.... don't judge me - it's long and probably not complete - I have way toooooooo much time to keep adding stuff :( 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

                I haven't purchased them yet but I found some on amazon that I like.... 

                 

                For the Guys - although I wont use the blue ones because they don't match the Luggage Tags

                http://www.amazon.co...d=IHVHN5LNZTXSD

                 

                 

                For The Girls - I will use all the colors, they match great

                http://www.amazon.co...d_sim_sbs_op_10

                 

                The same company also sells them individually

                  Girl! I won't even go there. When I met the FI 2 1/2 yrs ago I was working out 6 days a week. Now I'm cooking 6 days a week and licking the spoon and bottom of the plate clean. He's slim, has a soccer physique I guess. I have to work suuuuuuuper hard to stay at a decent weight. Every 5 pounds I gain he's like " babe I swear I'm gonna get super supportive" as he is spooning cereal into his mouth at midnight. I know I know, he didn't make me gain weight I did it myself , but when I was single I didn't cook much. Made some boring chix and broccoli or had a lean cuisine standing at my counter. I love to cook and NOW I have an audience. We are Caribbean so rice, rice, rice. :( Started spinning again, slowly but surely. My arse is on fire tho. Lolol

                  I know the feeling..shacking up adds on the pounds..I have never been in a spinning class..need to try
