I missed this forum over the weekend!  My first day at work since last Thursday.  Our beloved pet had surgery on Thursday and unfortunately passed yesterday. FI is devastated and so I am.   Sunday was my bridal shower and I had a lovely Fiesta-themed party.  So much love from my friends... really needed that.   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.  

My thoughts are with you and your FI. Losing a pet is like losing a family member. I am so sorry... Glad you had a great bridal shower!

    Aww that is horrible. I hate that for you guys. I know my pets are literally my children so I know how upsetting it can be to loose such a special piece of your heart.

     

    I like the idea of the picture tied to your bouquet. Etsy sellers are great for that, and you could even get a small one to add as a charm to his tie clip or bout. Or my doggie has a couple of bandanas, you could sew a piece into your dress and his suit. 

    So sorry again. :(

      Very cute! And wine never hurt a DIY project in my opinion haha. Everytime i think I need to sit down and do a project this last month I just open up my doors, turn on the music and grab a beer!

        Shew- So this last weekend my bridesmaids sort of through me by basically saying that I have too much planned for everyone for our wedding week cause they want to lay out and drink. Here is the deal- Out of seven nights, I planned the wedding (THursday) and they planned Tuesday to be the shower and dinner at night (So all morning afternoon open and free or can go to the spa). (Guys will have an excursion for their night). other than that all it consisted of was meeting at the same bar the first night we get it (So that everyone can meet and party together to get the trip started good) and then ONE dinner together just cause I thought it would be nice to all have dinner one night. 

        We planned to spend four hours on a sunset happy hour cruise on Monday, but that is just four hours. So basically Sat, Sun, Mon (minus 4 hours), Tues morning, Wed, Fri and Sat are all open days. I mean I am not counting one dinner as a planned event because hello are they not planning on eating? 

        They didnt say it mean or anything, but it just bothered me a little because I really just want to do things together some. I love sitting by the pool and having drinks as much as the next person, but this is my first time to DR and only the second time out of the country so I wanted to explore a little.

        So anyways, FI and I decided we would cancel the cruise on Monday and that will give him another day of fishing and I will just go on an excursion of my choice Sun, Mon, Wed or Fri. 

        When I told them they were like "Oh I was really looking forward to that." I was just thinking whatever cant do this anymore. Cant make everyone happy so OH WELL! :)

         

        In other news, two of my bridesmaid dresses dont fit but luckily the only two sizes they are not sold out of are the two sizes they need. Thank the Good LORD!

        So I got to get on ordering those this morning. Then going for a run to get all the stress out and back to getting stuff done this afternoon! Cause in two weeks i want to be saying ALLLLLL DONE!!!!!!!!!! :)

          Thank you, thank!  I love both ideas.. this picture in my bouquet and to sow a piece of his bandana into Matt's tie.  You girls are awesome.  

           

          Matt is very depressed. Hopefully time will help him heal a little bit before our wedding.  Flying next week to Eleuthera, Bahamas for my MOH's wedding.That will be much needed time away from the house which reminds us so much of Maxi.

           

          xoxo

              I found this vendor at Etsy who makes wedding bouquet memorial charms.  I will add my grandparent's and Maxi's pictures to the bouquet:

                That is the same vendor I ordered mine from.  I got them and look nice. I just haven't had a chance to put them together yet.
