@csho

They are so in denial there.  My email to Fabio discussed in detail all the problems ive had with my Fl coordinator and how she is my third.  He said that mine was a unique situation...but read the forums on here and so many brides have complained of the same thing. She has given me so much false information & he didn't even acknowledge it.  I guess that's why I ended up with the comped wedding package.  Anyway, the main thing is the wedding is going to come out to a cost that I am comfortable with and I hope to be able to give my guests an awesome experience. ;)

BRIDESMAID DRESSES ARE IN!!!!

 

Here they are & they look so much better than the beige sample they tried on. My one bridesmaid could have taken problem maids teal dress...but I chose the purple. such a shame bc the 3 together woulda been hot!!  I also attached the jewelry I purchased. Not the most amazing but I like that it will tie in the black lace.


...and their flowers :)

BACHELORETTE & SHOWER...

 

Well ladies...its all over. Bach party and shower came and went in the blink of an eye. I can't believe its over and now the next step is marriage!!!

 

Friday- I went to the salon to have a hair & makeup trial.  I figured the day of the bach party would be a good time to do it so I was all done up to go out.  Well my hair came out nothing like the picture. It ended up just being a half up hair do with a poofy front.  Not what I was looking for. Same with the makeup. I wanted kinda a shimmery smokey eye...but the girl used too much silver! It was pretty intense and definitely not a good wedding look.  I hate telling someone I don't like it and it was getting late and I needed to get ready to go...so I just stuck with it.

 

For the bach party we did painting with a twist. It was a lot of fun and definitely something I would do again.  Afterwards we hit a couple local bars and I surprisingly lasted til almost 2!

 

The Shower turned out beautifully! My girlfriends really did an awesome job.  The centerpieces were glittery spray painted wine bottles with peacock feathers and balloons. I brought the bottles and everything home bc im hoping they hold up to take to Mexico with me.  I would love to use them during cocktail hour!

 

Anyway, I am flying high and happy.  I was a great weekend surrounded by friends and family. Its so rare that we get to see most of the people let alone have them all in one place. 

 

Some reviews: Used rent the runway for my bach party dress.  It was delivered Wednesday and came beautifully packaged and with a back up size.  The dress colors were beautiful and totally fit the peacock theme.  Wasn't 100% on the fit but it was good enough.  I also ordered a Versace that was supposed to be delivered Friday night.  several other packages were left on my doorstep that night...but not the most important!!! and worst of all UPS doesn't deliver on the weekends!!! I didn't realize this til 6pm Saturday night...so I had to run out and find something else.  The back up dress actually looked nice...but I was still disappointed bc I had this whole Audrey Hepburn look in my head.

 

HoneymoonWishes.Com-  we used this instead of a traditional registry.  Out of all the people invited/came to the shower, only 3 actually used it.  Everyone else brought cards with checks. I guess people didn't want to show up with out something? I dunno...either way we got what we needed- money to put towards the wedding & I feel like we did it in a nice way.

SO happy for your! Like @csho said, everything is really coming together! While it sucks that you had to go through all the frustration and angst to get to this point, I'm really happy that it all turned around and you had an amazing weekend & are getting the wedding you dreamed/envisioned.   :)

 

Looking forward to hearing about the wedding & seeing pics!

 

P.S. Your daughter is adorable!

@csho... love the idea of doing the destination bach party.  I thought about it but my bridesmaids aren't flying in til the day before...so I didn't want to get wasted the night before the wedding.  Oh well.

 

@girlinthecity97... even with all the issues and the back and forth with my coordinator then the supervisor... I'm still having issues. I sent a list of questions that hit the 5 day mark today.  I sent another email and she responded, but as usual did not have the answers! Are my questions that difficult? some things I asked-

- How many tables will we have set up at the cocktail hour?

- How many tables will we have at the reception?

- Do you do the separate sweetheart table?

- What are the table measurements? I would like to order linens.

 

5 days and she couldn't answer those questions.


PS...thanks for the kind words about my daughter. she is my most favorite little person in this world! and such a ham. loves to smile for the camera :wub:

Ugh!  That IS annoying. My guess is that she isn't answering them because she doesn't know and/or is trying to find out from the onsite coordinator?  Either way, she should say something, even if it's a "This will be discussed when you meet with the onsite coordinator, we don't handle that at this point..." (or something along those lines)! :(

 

I'm definitely NOT looking forward to that stage of the game. :huh:  We are in room block phase now that we have the date & location.

@talicea7812 I don't blame you about the bachelorette party the night before... two days before is going to be rough I think lol! I am just going to not drink too much or too late into the night!

 

An so frustrating! I will be so excited to hear about how it all turns out in the end, which I am sure will all be great! I know it can just be sooo frustrating during the planning process!
