November 2015 Brides!!

Recommended Posts

Woohoo!! This is OUR MONTH!!

What is left on everyone's To Do list?

 

Just finished my Pre-Travel mailing. Since we are getting married during the Thanksgiving holiday, instead of doing a group excursion, we purchased passes to Club MoBay for everyone. That way our guests will have the VIP experience once they get off the plane and are fast tracked through customs.

 

Also included are Travel Tips, a book on SWO/ SSJ resorts, a fact sheet about the resort, Packing list, and a "No Thank You" fan to just hold up when you are approached by the many people selling you things. post-271841-0-32291200-1446376953_thumb.jpeg

 

We still need to write our vows, finish our playlist, and make spa and hair appointments at the resort.

I'm sure there is more. Will make a final list.

 

Getting Super Excited!! Congratulations to everyone!! Hoping everyone's wedding day will be Incredibly Fabulous!! ????

OMG, can you believe with approximately 2 weeks left before our wedding, we JUST RECEIVED an RSVP!! My friend and her husband just booked their flight and hotel. In addition, the are staying at another resort, so that is an $80 per person day pass we must pay for.

I hate being mean, but I told her they can come to the wedding ceremony, but the cocktail hour and reception was closed. We already had 25 guests. After 25 guests, you have to get the buffet. I'm sorry, but Menus, table cards, OOT bags, Club Mobay passes ...etc. are done.

 

I'm happy they decided to come, but with 2 weeks notice...Unbelievable!!

 

Sorry, just had to vent. ????

Love this thread!! Congrats to you all :) @@RandL2015, I don't see why you should have to pay for their day pass... One of my friends got married in Mexico in January and anyone not staying at the resort had to pay their own way to get in for the day...

I agree with the above, I wouldn't pay their day pass either.

Good for you to stand up for yourself. I know it's tough and you feel bad, but two weeks before? Come on. People are unreal. We had someone ask to come about 4 days before we left and we said no.

 

Congrats on being so close.

@@calgarybride2015 and @@FutureMrsSam  Trust me I didn't want to pay for the day passes. However, my Fi is much nicer than me. He feels, since they are coming down during the Thanksgiving holiday, and since they are staying at a 3 star, cheaper resort, they probably didn't know if they could afford the trip until the last minute.

 

So, giving them the benefit of the doubt, I said okay, let's go ahead and purchase the day passes...but nothing else.   :)

 

Can't wait to just to just lay on the beach with a beverage in hand.

I totally understand. Our day passes kinda sucked. So when the groomsmen needed a wedding pass so he could be on site long enough we did pay as it included the dinner and I couldn't imagine making him pay for the dinner at our wedding.

@RandL2015  I agree with the others. Why would you pay for their day passes? Two weeks notice is a bit over the top! You're so close now! We were married in Jamaica 4 years ago and have tried twice to go back but didn't make it. We loved the island and the people! I'm sure your wedding will be amazing!!

@@acw271011 Trust me, deep down, I agree with everyone. I guess a part of me feels like they are coming all the way down to Jamaica for us, and if they would've RSVP earlier, we would have had to pay the $80 per person for the dinner since we are over our package limit.

 

What's so ironic, is that you read how this happens to other brides, but I never thought it would happen to me since I sent out our STD 15 months out. Now I realize, to some people, it doesn't matter how much notice you give them, they are still going to do it in their time.

 

Leave for tropical paradise in 10 days!! Woohoo!!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
