    You can TOTALLY do 1"!!! You've got this!

    So sorry to hear about the tooth set back, but VERY glad it didn't happen in Mexico.

    Hope you feel better soon!!

      Thanks for the encouragement, mstigger!  It's killing me not to go have my dress altered right now, I'm not a patient person with stuff like that.


      The shot glasses came!  They're a gift from my Mom, 8 of them, one for each of our guests:



      The toe rings and acrylic tumblers came, too.  I did not like the stick-on letters I got for the cups, they weren't staying well, so I ordered vinyl letters from an etsy seller.  She's doing full names instead of just single letters, and all 8 names were only $10.  I tried my dress on with my shoes and jewelry, and love love love the necklace and shoes with the dress.  I didn't realize the earrings were clip-ons, however, and one of them came apart.  I hate clip-ons, so although I could fix the one earring, I went ahead and ordered others from another etsy seller.  They're teal and rhinestone 16mm rounds and I think they'll be perfect with the necklace.  My MOH friendship bracelets have been shipped, so those should be here today and tomorrow.  I can't wait to give hers to her, I love her so much, and I know it will be a special moment for us.  Her husband is our BM, they still are on the search for what they're wearing... I left it up to them.  Oh, and the beach bags themselves came in.  They're much bigger than I thought they would be since they were only $9.00 each!  Instead of having them monogrammed, I bought iron-on letters at JoAnn's in colors that coordinate with each bag's handle.  I'll have to get pictures of those.


      Today I'm going to order the personalized cigar bands, next week Dave and I will go to a cigar shop and get some higher-end cigars.  Dave said to wait until we get to Mexico so we could buy Cubans, but I know we won't want to stop at duty-free on the way in and I want the bags ready to be put on each guest's bed as soon as we get there.


      Everyone's flights are booked... we get in super early in the morning with one couple (same flight), we'll have time to catch the ferry to Isla, drop our luggage at the house, hit the grocery store for wine and some essentials, and get back to the ferry dock to pick up the other two couples whose flights land right around 11am.  We're trying to decide if we just want to grill dinner at the house that first evening since we want it to be low-key as the wedding is the next day.  Our group likes to party, and we don't want to be dragging the next day.


      I can't believe we're about 40-something days away!!!

        Wow, I haven't updated this in a while!


        So much has happened.  Yesterday we got married at the courthouse :) .  It was much better than I thought it would be, the judge cracked some jokes, we both said our heartfelt "I do"s and we had a wonderful afternoon and night afterwards.  Here we are at the courthouse, in front of the adult probation department :




        My flowers arrived today, they look so amazing!! 





        I picked my dress up from the seamstress today, I'm so happy with it!!  She added a hook at the top of the back so that it's easier for zipping.  It needs steamed, but I'm going to take it and have that done once we get to the island.


        We leave in 8 days, and we're pretty much all set.  I have my nail, pedi, and eyelash appointment the day before we leave.  The kennel has our reservation for our puppy, Julio, we're going to miss him so much, but he'll be well-taken care of.  The photographer and ceremony are both paid for, and I'm working out the final details with the restaurant for dinner afterwards.


        We're getting so close!!
