I LOVE the flower!! That's so pretty!! And the earrings are gorgeous!!

 

I have a question, and it's just the luck of the draw that you're the one I'm asking (lol sorry) but isn't anyone afraid of burning their feet on the sand by wearing the barefoot sandals? I know that's a dumb question but I just had to ask......

 

You're getting really close now!

No, I'm not worried about it.. we are getting married at 1730, plus the resort lays down some kind of material for the "aisle" on the beach. Furthermore, (because I thought about this a bit) we are getting to the resort 2 days before our wedding day, so I plan on "testing" the sand at our ceremony time :)

I am more concerned about it raining... I know rain is good luck on a wedding day, blah blah..but, I put so much time, effort, and money in to a beach ceremony that it would be very difficult to not be disappointed if we had to move it indoors...


Side note, has anyone else encountered ridiculous family drama during their wedding planning?? (Ok, I know that is somewhat of a silly question... I think I just need some reassurance and to know what I am not alone). I am experiencing some right now and it has me almost losing sleep! In fact, it has me so upset that I posted the whole situation!...which says a lot because I am a rather "private" person. 


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

@perianjay & @smileitseb, thank you! I bought them at Little White Dress Bridal Boutique in Denver. They are by Elen Henderson Designs, but this is their website.

 

Yes, less than one month out! I cannot believe it! To make the time go by faster, I am counting down the number of shifts left at the hospital haha (TEN!!! wooo hoooo)  :)

 

How is everyone else's planning coming along??


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

I love the hair flower and your shoes. The earrings are very pretty too :), they'll look great! 

 

I think all weddings bring on family drama at some point, especially when you start getting pretty close. Our families here in Canada are very small so the chances are less but the bigger the family the worse it is. I have a really big family in Argentina and wow, there's always a different drama going on for every family get together. People that don't talk to each other, people who hate each other's guts. You didn't invite so and so and they get angry.  You name it, they have it. It's totally normal :)

Ok, this is my third time trying to reply... technology is not my friend today :angry: ... Anyway...

@pddcmc I keep getting so many ideas from you! loving the signs  :) Planning for me, still feels like i have a lot to do, like get our marriage license, get married, get bridesmaid jewelry, arrange transportation from airport, finalize music, finish our vows, finish ceremony script, finalize wedding day timeline, finish welcome bags, have my final dress fitting andddd buy more cute bikinis LOL. it feels like tons to do!!! but im working thru it slowly but surely. 

 

Where are you on your to do list?

 

 

LOL. Oh. Girl. I have the same to do list as you, if not more..and I am getting married in less than one month! Here goes...

 

To Do:

  • Finalize Wedding Planner Form (just a couple things to iron out, otherwise this can be checked off)
  • Finalize Guest List & Seating Chart (gotta love those stragglers...)
  • Finalize Ceremony script (FI will do this when he get back from his business trip). (and print a copy, just in case!)
  • Music - ceremony, first dance, AND reception  :huh:  :o  <_<
  • Design and order stickers for cups (FI's going to do this... eventually)
  • "Stuff" for cups - Instead of doing OOT bags, we are putting things inside the cups and attaching a tag to each one
  • Finish said tags for cups
  • Finish purchasing items for cups - I bought chewable Airborne packets, mini Johnson & Johnson first aid kits (obvi these won't fit in the cups), and mini Aloe Vera bottles for 97 cents at Target  :). I also bought plastic baggies (I've read several times that people always find use for these?) and mint LifeSavers. Will will also add pepto and lip balm (still need to purchase).
  • Write Welcome "letter" - this will also be "stuffed" in the cups. This will include a welcome and thank you note from us, currency conversion ($1 USD = x pesos), restaurants and their hours & dress codes, an About Us section, a Who's Who section with bridal party and our moms, wedding day itinerary and reception menu, the resort map (this indicate wedding event locations), "tips", a list of places people traveled from to be at our wedding, and resort activities.
  • FI's wedding date attire (he is FINALLY doing this this weekend!)
  • Print Alternative Guestbook (FI designed it)
  • Start packing - I'm 97.4% sure we will need to purchase an extra suitcase, or two
  • Dog sitter - start taking the dogs to the sitter (as I have mentioned before, we are new to the state...and unfortunately, our dogs are spoiled and slow to warm up to people...the last thing we need is to worry about our fur babies)
  • Go to the courthouse and make things legal  :wub:
  • Exchange money and get traveler's checks
  • Finish place cards and table numbers
  • Get e-ring cleaned
  • Have final fitting (I called the seamstress after panicking all day... she had only taken in the gown by stitching it, she hadn't cut anything yet, so altering it won't be a problem. I was really freaking out that I'd have to crash diet!...which would be really hard because I haven't changed my diet/activity this entire time).
  • Purchase chalk markers or dustless chalk for chalk board easel
  • Buy Tide stick, superglue (just in case something happens to the fans in transit), and more sunblock
  • Buy a few new bikinis and rompers. OH! and I want a big, floppy sunhat :D

Hmmmm.....I think that is it, for now. 

^_^ Everything will get done, in due time.


@TinkerSofi I completely agree. It is just a bummer and frustrating when one's trying to plan a wedding on top of "Life." It makes me want to make everyone sit in a circle around a camp fire, hold hands, and sing kumbaya! LOL


.....oooooor, "Why Can't We Be Friends" lol

Everything looks great.

Haha those isle runners can be dangerous too. After watching my wedding ceremony I was shocked - groomsmen tripped, me and dad got hung up on it and then my dad almost tripped again sitting down. I would have preferred the sand! Thankfully noone literally fell.
