          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"

              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



              It all looks great, you guys are putting me to shame. I ordered more stuff off Etsy last night. A Mr & Mrs sign for our sweetheart table and the flower for my hair.  I really need to start doing some DIY projects to save some money. It's just so much easier to click 'Order' hahahah

              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 

              If you were getting a bridal party thank you tote bag....would you prefer a sarong or towel? I'm leaning towards the sarong since they are cheaper and lighter. and the hotel offers fresh beach towels everyday.

              Sarong would be my pick

              I need your opinions ladies!


              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.
