Woohoo! That's so much fun! My San Diego girls through me a staycation bachelorette on Saturday and it was awesome. I agree, it's so touching the amount of love you get and makes you so happy and appreciative of the thoughtful people in your life.

 

I fly to Virginia in two weeks to do my bridal shower and bachelorette with my hometown girls. I'm probably most excited for that one b/c it's the friends and family I've known my whole life.

 

So happy you had a wonderful weekend. You deserve it with all the DIY projects and thoughtfulness you've put into your wedding to make sure that your guests have a great trip. :)

That's awesome! I totally agree- mine was with my life-long friends and one new-er (3-ish years) friend. The girls were girls I gre up with since 4th grade! It's so weird that we are adults!! haha

 

Have a great time on your trip!! and be safe! :)

My FI asked me if we could have a picture of Maximus at our wedding.  Of course, I said!!  I have to think of a very special way to honor him.  

I am SO sorry!!! That's so incredibly hard. I will definitely keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers! That is so sweet that you will honor your pet on your wedding day!

I bought a charm from this seller for my bouquet (my grandparents - one side has their wedding day picture and the other has my favorite picture of the 2 of them as I remember them), and was VERY happy with the result.

Are you ladies bringing a card box with you? Would it be tacky not to have one? I just feel like I have enough crap wedding stuff to bring down already! lol

I don't expect the people attending to bring gifts or cards or anything but what if they do? Would it be awful to just have them laid on a table? Or is there any kind of cheap card box I could get. Something that is flat and we can just put together quickly when we arrive?

I am not taking a card box for the exact reasons you stated-- one I don't want to drag it there and two because I don't expect people to bring cards to the wedding. I will have one at my at home reception.

I was thinking about asking the hotel if they had a basket that I could borrow and pretty-up with some ribbon for the cards, that way their not just thrown onto the table out in the open. I'm also putting a family member in charge of removing and putting them into a room safe before the end of the night when things tend to get blurry

    • 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?
