Congrats!!! :D Now it's sort of official! 

 

Don't be worried about your brazilian. Try to relax, maybe take an advil before you go. The more tense you are the more it hurts. You'll see it's really not as bad as you play it in your head. 

 

Talking about the lost luggage. It has crossed my mind, but we also have direct flight so it should be ok. I still always pack an outfit in my carryon just in case, including a bathing suit, because there's no way I'll stay in the lobby for a day if they happen to lose my luggage haha. They can find me on the beach :D

 

My friends are super excited already, at least my close ones, but I still don't think they're as excited as I am!

Ok so I guess the sleepless nights begin. Two nights now I have been tossing and turning. Nervous maybe? I think it's starting to hit me that I will be the centre of attention in a week. Not good at that and hope I don't feel too awkward and nervous. Oh my.

Plus maybe the bikini wax today isn't hekping any.

awkward is my middle name haha. I feel so weird having everyone's attention and just want to hide. I'm really trying not to stress out about it before hand but I know it's easier said than done. 

 

Good luck with the waxing today!

@kcole123 

 

Congrats!  We are doing the same things.  Signing papers here and symbolically getting married in Mexico.  My fiancĂ© is really not a fan of the idea because he thinks it won't feel special because we are already "married" but I keep trying to explain that it will.  I'm sort of at a loss for words to try to explain this to him and I can't wait to get your perspective of things. 

 

We get married on June 20th and I have already had nightmares.  One that my dress just doesn't fit the day of the wedding, another that I lost my dress and another one that I cut my hair mega short on one side and ruined my hair.  lol  ahh. 

 

I'm sending you so many great vibes so that you can enjoy your wedding week :)

@veryvalentine
Thanks for that.

We actually
Felt the same way. Nathan turned to me yesterday and said "it didn't seem like much." I told him that's because it wasn't and because we didn't tell anybody or because there was no big deal made out of it, it doesn't seem real. It almost seems like he feels like he is missing out. Then I told him " well the big deal is down there, it wil feel more different then becxuse I will have my wedding dress on, he will have his suit on standing at the alter waiting for me. All our family and close friends will be there. They will all be celebrating our day.
Yesterday was just paper work to put in place for that. That's what I tell myself anyway. I think he feels better now that I explained that more to him but it still feels weird to call each other husband and wife just because it wasn't the "big day" like everyone pictures. But once we do it down there, that will feel more real then. You know what I mean? I am pitiably making no sense haha I know in my head what I am trying to say. Haha

Well my biggest nightmare ever. Don't know if I told you girls this, but this brilliant girl decides to get a crown on her tooth about a month before the wedding. Anyway, my tooth in the front was cracked as a kid and it caused problems down the road and I had to have a root canal. Anyway the tooth was discoloured and the doctor recommended that I get a crown to protect the tooth. Anyway I figured what better time the. Before the wedding because I was really self concious over the discoloured tooth. Anyway made the appointment for my crown, went in, did whatever needed to be done and they ot a temporary one on for me. So my appointment was last week to go back and take the temporary one off and put the crown on. Anyway while the dentist took the temporary tooth off my tooth underneathb basically fell apart right down to the gum. All I heard was "oh Kristy we have bad news." Right then and there I wanted to post pone the wedding haha. So anyway the dentist said basically the crown they had fitted for me would no longer work. So had to get re-fitted for another crown and put another temporary back on. To get re-fitted though he had to put in a post in Order to build my old tooth back up. Anyway I left last week in tears. He said he will put a rush on it just because he knows I am leaving on the 13th and he doesn't trust the temporary tooth. He said a simple bite into a rib or anything could pop it off. To take off the temporary tooth he uses just simple tweezers for Christ sake.

So yeah I am a little nervous about this's. I honestly don't know if I will get the crown in time before I go. They had to send it to a lab two hours away. And then if they do get it back they would have to fit me in for an appointment. I honestly don't have high hopes to get it in time. In the meantime I am being extra careful with the temporary. I honestly don't know what I would do if that popped off while we were there. Front tooth missing would look like....well I don't even want to picture that. The temporary that's there doesn't match my teeth entirely with colouring but it will be better than nothing. Not what I wanted but i will have to make due. Anyway, that is my nightmare over and over again. Another reason I can't sleep well.
But on a better note nathans rash has improved a whole bunch. He is thinking it might have been an infection or something. Anyway his appointment is today to have it checked again.
Oh another thing I am nervous about is looking sad in pics while I am at the alter or having a hunch back. I don't sit or stand straight at the best of times. I have poor posture that I try to remind myself of but I keep forgetting. So yeah I don't want to be hunched over in pictures either. Sounds by this I have the weight of the world on my shoulders hahaha I hope I relax as soon as the warm tempetures and the ocean breeze hits me. Cause God knows if I don't sleep much when I am there the four days before the wedding, the makeup artist has a lot of work ahead of her.

I'm glad Nathan is feeling better!

 

I'm hoping that the crown will come in maybe sometime this week! Did he say he say how long rush orders usually take? This is horrible news but lets' hope the temporary holds well until you can get it fixed, whether it be before or after the wedding. On the bright side, maybe your tooth was going to fall apart anyways, so it's better that it happened now while at the dentist, so he was at least able to put something temporary on, instead of during your trip! 

 

Going to the dentist causes me so much anxiety, I hate it  <_<

Omg your tooth!  that's enough to lose sleep over.  wow.  I mean, it makes for a great diet though... I would be so scared that I'd probably stick to liquids.  lol  I hope that your appointments comes through- that's too much stress for a bride that is travelling.

 

I really love how you explained it, "it was just the paper"  It's just the paper work that makes what we are going legal.  We are not telling anyone that 's it's symbolic.  It's really nobody's business and shouldn't change the way they see our wedding ceremony.  It's a celebration and we are not having an AHR so this it it! :) 

 

I hope everything works out for you.  Keep us posted on your tooth! ;)

I used a travel agency in Ontario for my group bookings. I went through Centre Holidays.

So Brazillian didn't go like I wanted it too. In other words no Brazillian I just could only get the bikini wax. I didn't think it was as bad as I had imagined but I still found it hurt and I also forgot to take an advil before I went there. So even though I only ended up with the bikini wax I am happy now it's over with and I even booked another appointment for five weeks down the road. Not sure if I will Brazillian. It might take a while to get used to.

So I went shopping today for a purse. I wanted a bigger purse just to put our paperwork and our jewlery in there. I figure I can have a bigger purse along with a carry on then that should help with bringing the important things on the plane with us. You wouldn't beleive how hard it was to find a bigger purse with a zipper that wasn't $100. After going through all the stores I ended up in Spring and they had a few there. The one I bought inthought was really cute. These would make for cute gifts for the bridesmaids too. It almost had a nautical look to it. Thought you girls would like another idea just in case you are searching either for a bag for yourself or your bridesmaids.
