June 2013 brides- what are you doing?

Recommended Posts

Okay I have a question for you ladies...

I am trying to decide on jewelry now. My dress has a beading detail on the side which has pearls in it. 

 

I am wondering if I should go in the more traditional bridal pearl direction or go in more of a beachy-pearl style. I am normally more drawn to laid back items rather then serious jewels but since it is my wedding day I just don't know what to do. I asked my sisters and they are split! :) 

 

Does anyone have their jewelry picked out yet? Anyone go for more of a beachy-boho look rather then traditional with the jewelry?

I haven't found anything yet but I want to go for a more beachy-boho look (thanks for a great way to described it!)  I'm actually thinking that I might even do some color since I'm not a rhinestone/diamond/pearl girl at all!  Bridesmaids are wearing navy blue dresses and I'm going to but them hot pink earrings and bracelets so I'm thinking I may do something similar for myself.

Well thanks guys, at least I know I'm not alone!  We don't have a TA, and our hotel is made up of 3 bed/3 bath villas, so we have to match everyone up.  Obviously we can't do that without RSVPs!  Oh well, I knew this part was going to be kind of a headache.  It will be fine!  And soon I can just start tracking people down.  Haha.

The RSVPs are a huge headache. I don't understand people. I fill out an RSVP the proper way and send it back immediately.  I have had 3 come back with NO NAMES. Who does that? They were all declines, but still., Oddly enough 2 of them wrote a little note stating that they are having a baby and won't be able to travel. Well, we have NO CLUE which one of our friends to congratulate! We have 2 friends that are expecting and have no clue who it is! One of them said we were one of the first people to know. I heard from other girls to number each RSVP and keep track on a spreadsheet in case this happens but I was so excited to send everything out, I totally forgot! Now, I'm kicking myself in the butt!

yeah i heard AFTER i sent mine that you can number them with black light pen, and it only shows up when you hold it under a black light!  genius.  but it doesn't help me, now does it?  haha.  oh well.  next time we get married... (totally joking of course.)

i found jewelry difficult too!  FI's mom made me a freshwater pearl necklace that is pretty unique a while back, and i LOVE it, so i just decided to roll with that.  this may not be helpful, but i think you should maybe try both styles with your dress and choose what you love.  you can't go wrong!

I actually posted a question on another board last night related to your post MK...everyone on here talks about vista print, what do you get with them. I'm tempted to buy this (bc let's be honest, I love groupons) but I'm not sure what I'd use it for.

Hi! Sorry I didn't see your question in the other thread. I use vistaprint for so much! So far for: Luggage tags http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84974/my-diy-luggage-tags-with-pics#post_1874230 Key/tip money holder http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84975/my-diy-key-tip-money-holder-with-pics#post_1874229 My RSVP postcard http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/85034/my-diy-passport-invitations-and-rsvp-postcard-with-pics#post_1874225 Also, for another postcard that I created for my OOT bag, as well as a "Spanish Phrases" rack card that I designed. I also plan to design a pre travel brochure and some other things that are currently slipping my mind. Hope this helps... The possibilities are endless! :)

    • 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.
