      In the box they went. . . 

       

       

      Wrapped the boxes in bubble wrap

       

       

      Then wrapped them in brown paper - last minute decided to stamp them with " <3 handle with care <3"  it looked better on the piece of paper I did it on first... the bubble wrap made it challangeing - but I went with it anyways.  I then used packing tape to tape every surface so that the paper wouldn't get torn in shipping.

       

       

      Finally, I taped on the address labels : )

       

       

       

      (btw -  the addresses on the labels I made up so I could post a picture on the internet - the info from my TA is correct if anyone has a need for one )

       

       

      Looks cute!

        ugh!I want to go to.miami! but I secretly think my bm sucks (I.know that's mean) lol my sister is my moh and she's kinda a ditz, not the best planner, one bm is now planning a wedding even tho she's already married, one is prego and the other 2...are. like lost in the wind! if you want to come to nyc for yours, I'll be here, I'll probably have to settle on nyc even tho id like to do miami. my fi and I joked about going to miami and having our own bachelor/bachelorette with each other lol

        Jali: I want to go to NY. Lets swap houses. Hahahaha!

        I might be the only one who doesn't really care if my guests stay as long as me. I can't exactly ask people to pay to go, take time off of their job and say "umm hey so you know...it's also our honeymoon" my Hispanic family would be deeply offended. But again, maybe it doesn't bother me as much because we've already planned for a delayed honeymoon later on and I sold this DW as a huge family vacation anyway.

        Anyone else feel like they're going to be cheated out of a great bachelorette? My mom keeps reminding me that the BM have to pay for this and that but come on! a bachelorette is part of it right??

        I don't think my MOH which is my step sister is a " bachelorette party type" but I knew that when I chose her. I was ok with that because I know she's good and supportive about other things that are more Important. I haven't decided on any other BM , but I'm leaning towards ny niece who will be 17 by then and his niece who will be 18. I'm doing this to kind of keep it in the family so I don't have to pick between my GF's . Most seem disinterested anyway so why bother. That being said both are so young that my bachelorette party might be at chunky cheese. Lol. Some other friends brought it up and if it does happen I'd probably go to Ny. It's not that expensive to fly there and since I'm originally from there I thought it would be good cuz my other GF's from Ny can join in the fun. We shall see.

        Has anyone heard of or used a good videographer in Punta Cana? I am not sure about Antillana which is the company for RIU Palace Punta Cana since they have no examples for me to see before hand.  I just don't want to end up with a bad video of my wedding day, I am willing to pay a little more to get a nice and professional looking video NOT a slideshow of pictures.  Any help would be great! 

        Your resort might have a FB page that's like Riu punta cana Brides, or something.

          Denise!!! HOLLA!! Lol, if you come to NY let me know so we can link up! My sister (age 23) is my MOH by default. It's just the right thing to do. One of the bm is my college friend (age 29) of 10 yrs. I think i just gave away my age (but my college friend is a bit older than me LOL) and the other 3 (ranging between 25, 23, and 21) are my godsisters. They seem disinterested since i put my foot down, I want no freaking stippers! Please let's think outside the box! LOL. You know you're not that far from Miami, maybe we can switch. What part of NY are you originally from?

            shhhh! she isss planning it after me lol. she's been having a shitload of changes with dates. she's getting married in Jamaica. lol my sister wanted to do a party bus but im like "ok... where's the bus taking us?" Lol I priced it out $850 for 18 girls isn't bad, comes out to $45-$48 a girl. well see. I'm doing the research and giving my sister a list of what i'd like to do, no strippers please. the male ones are so tacky lol

            I LOVE mail strippers. OMG they work so hard for their money. I'm always amazed, how much they have to do for a DOLLAR. Push-ups , flips, rain falling from the sky! Dressing up in all types of shit and women are like .... U want my DOLLAR? Like its a 100 dollar bill. Lol Women strippers stand there are rub their boob and get a 20. Hahahah

            You do united airlines?? I'm flying united to West Palm Oct 5th lol

            No! I fly for Spirit. Don't judge me if we have scorned you. I've heard it all.

            Hahah I really do... I always look to see if there is one that makes sense with what I said If someone doesn't show me where to find these smileys I'm gonna flip :drum:  (not sure I will ever say something for this one so Here you go - just for fun!)

            I have something for that one.... Why the hell can I NOT find a steel drum band in DR? Lol
