Marinah84's Planning Thread - 3/14/15 - Crown Paradise Club Cancun

Recommended Posts

I've been having nightmares for months! Some of them are pretty scary already so I don't know what they'll look like as we get closer! Haha

 

If you're lazy to do the books I would do a brochure. I've seen someone with an amazing book on one of these threads but I'm too lazy for that haha. I can barely fill out a brochure! I will make sure to put a section to people can write their friends' room numbers to call each other. I'm sure your guests won't think it's a big deal, getting a brochure vs. a book

I had a nightmare last week that I was stood up at the alter and then my father was there in a Maple Leafs Jersey and splash pants. I'm not sure what part was more terrifying.

Ps: I feel you about the whole being muscular thing. Seriously, my body throws on muscle so quickly, you'd think I'm on something haha but I'm sure you'll look beautiful. 

 

I can't believe it's so close!! and the countdown begins :D yay!!!

bahah, I actually LOLed to this :P.

 

I finally had a nice one last night! My dress was totally different but pretty, it was basically two pieces, a corset and a short pencil skirt, but then it had the tulle skirt that mine has at the back. It almost looked like one of the outfits from the evil queen on once upon a time, but white and with tulle hah. It was pretty cool :P

I'm guessing it's fairly normal for brides to have nightmares like these before the wedding - someone actually told me that they didn't think I should have any stress, since it was a destination wedding.  I laughed and told her "it's still a wedding, and it involves planning/coordination/etc PLUS the language barrier!".  Oi!

 

 

I'm lazy, but it's more that I don't want to edit my book I made (almost a year ago lol) in terms of updating info - but mostly printing so it looks good.  It was such a hassle with the coloring book, and this is like a 20 pg little book!  

 

I kind of want to do the book just because I have spent time on it, and it has a great section for guest names/rooms plus resort info already, and puzzles/games!  I work on the computer, so theoretically in between meetings it shouldn't take me toooooo horribly long to fix it - I'm just stubborn ha!  It'll honestly probably take me longer to remake a brochure with the info than it will to fix the margins :)

 

@@TinkerSofi - you are TINY!!!  I wouldn't worry about your muscle mass at all (if you were, which I don't think you were, but just in case!).  

 

When I swam, I seriously had delts like a football player.  I didn't work out for YEARS because I wanted to lose the muscle (which I did, but also gained fat haha).  I am definitely talking to Samuel about how to de-emphasis them in my photos (I wouldn't say no to a little photoshop, bahahaha).  It is what it is - I'm just happy that I have a corset for the swelling!  I'm kind of worried now for the wedding band, when we put them on, if my fingers will be too swollen...didn't even think about it LOL

 

I did just send off my wedding band to be duplicated for the anniversary band.  That was scary, mailing it to the jeweler.  It got there ok, and they have promised to have it back before we leave for the wedding!

that makes sense. Sometimes I find i'm procrastinating things that I actually like to do or want to do! like putting together some of the bouquets and things like that. It's weird how that happens.

 

You know I did think about how in the world this ring will fit on my finger hahah. When I went to NYC in July I couldn't take my e-ring off while I was there because my hands were so swollen. I'm going to keep a bottle/cup of water and lemon by my side all day, hopefully every day and maybe put my and in a bucket of ice before heading to the ceremony hahah.

What a great idea, I hope I can remember to do that - I'm going to limit my sun exposure AND alcohol intake until the reception!  Then I don't care if I gain 10lbs the last 5 days, ha!  Getting in on Wednesday and married on Saturday makes it tougher, but I am determined!

I didn't limit anything and even with my dress stress it still did up!! Haha ok we struggled :)

 

I was soooo thankful to sleep again once the wedding was over but truth be told I had no issues and/or nightmares while in Mexico.

 

I swear people think DW are free too.

yeah we arrive on sunday and don't get married until thursday. I'm not much of a drinker because I'm such a cheap drunk haha, it's the buffets that get me :P. Usually I can offset the eating by swimming all day though.

Haha I tried to lightly watch my food/drink intake before the wedding as well.  Prob. a good thing otherwise I'd have come 10lbs more

 

Same Kim.  So much anxiety before we left for Mexico but once we got there most of the nerves and stress went away :).

 

The good thing for us w/ the wedding is we did a church wedding first so we kind of had a trial run before.  In the church wedding, we couldn't even get the rings on properlyso we knew for the real wedding ceremony to just put it on the other person's finger and then we helped push it up ourselves.  It looked a lot more fluid than trying to jam it on each other's fingers
