Oh I know all about the procrastinating fiancé my dear. Nathan has yet to finish the playlist. So what am I doing? Writing songs down whenever I think of them and just handing him the paper.

That's awesome you didn't find it that bad. I booked a Brazillian right for my first appointment. I figure why ease into it. Go all or nothing right? I am going to regret his haha.

Girl. I couldn't get his help on the music either... so what did I do? Make a playlist (and add some songs that I KNEW he'd dislike so that he would give an opinion!) lol

 

Well, I was too nervous to go straight for the Brazilian so I had to ease myself in to it!

I do recommend wearing a sundress (or some kind of loose-fitting clothes) because the rubbing/pressure from my jeans was causing discomfort. 


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

So I bought the girls a couple little things to go with their other gifts in their bag (my bridal party). Just because I felt I didn't have enough. These cute little sandals with manicure set I got at Dollar tree. I figured they would be good for their purses. Also I bought a little tune of perfume each for them. The perfume was only $15 but it has a really nice sweet/summery smell to it which I thought was nice for summer.

I also bought these thank you cards a while back. I figure the chevron ones I could use for the guys with their gifts and the other floral ones I could use for the girls with their gifts, the left overs I could give to the vendors.

I forgot to mention, I got the FI to work on the Welcome Letter (he's doing it right now! yaaay!)...& he sent me out to buy a bottle of wine to calm my nerves! LOL


Oooooh! Great ideas!

 

I have yet to get gifts, let alone decide on what we are giving... (*sips wine*)


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

Hahaha we don't have groomsmen gifts yet but I think I have Nathan convinced he should buy the men something. He is warming up so I suspect this will also be left until last minute haha

Yeah Nathan wanted to get watches originally but he doesn't want to spend that much. He wants to spend about $60-80 per guy.

Yeah it's a really nice perfume. It's a roll on and probably don't last that lone but it's a nice smell.

We don't even have a full bridal party, so it shouldn't be this difficult! In fact, we just need gifts for our moms, my matron of honor, and his best man.

I think the perfume is a great idea! Perfect to freshen up and it'll fit in any purse and just about any clutch!

Thanks girls.
I am thinking the girls will love their gifts I have them. I am satisfied now and feel like I have them enough. Those two little add ons is all I needed to make it complete.

We agreed to spend 100$ a person for our bridal party's so the watches were a great find at The Bay!! So far I've bought my girls their own beach bags with bathing suit covers aloe Vera gel and floppy hats for beach pictures, as well as 50$ to each girls dress just gotta find something small for about 15-17$ to finish their gifts off @kcole123
We also bought my uncle a watch (he's the one walking me down the aisle) since he only has the one with a Velcro band just gotta figure out my mom and my FI's parents! @pddcmc

I love this idea and those are really cute! I might have to steal this one :)

 

After two hours of roaming the isles of Michaels (these is after the dollar store) I finally found something I could use as name place holders. I get so frustrated in craft stores because I ain't that crafty.
But these are perfect because there isn't much creativity needed. Just write the names on the flags and place on the straw.
I am hoping the boat people can place them maybe in a glass of water or something before we board and if they can't place them then I will get my maid of honour to do it real quick. I have the table seatings done up on paper. It's just a matter of following that.
