Small update

 

Got to see my friend last week (the one who I split the order of wrist coils/key card holders with) and i'm so happy with how they looked/turned out.

We used business cards for the inside note and my friend got them on promo with vistaprint..100 business cards for free - just pay shipping. I've read on here quite a few times that these were a big hit at other DW, so i'm excited to be including these in the OOT bags.

Our OOT bags are almost 100% complete, with the exception of the actual bag haha. I've really been holding out for the Wedding Chicks sale and not sure when that will be, but luckily I have some time. We are going to be going with the "Hola Amigo" design. It's just too fitting for a DW in Mexico.

Will probably do a mint/aqua colour for the wording. Want to keep it a colour that appeals to both genders.

 

I feel like i've been at a bit of a stand still with my planning and then I saw this little counter that says 7.5 months away and I got a bit spooked. It feels like just yesterday when Chester and I decided on the resort and it was a year away. I'm mostly worried about losing the weight that I wanted to lose to fit into my dress.

 

Chester and I booked our engagement shoot and will be shooting downtown for a 'city chic' look. We're going to wait until June when the weather is a bit nicer here. :)

Would you believe me that it was around 30*C here yesterday?  Oh my!  My car said 33 and TWN said 28 so we will go with 30 LOL! was gorgeous.

 

I loved doing the engagement pictures, was great help with posing and smiling and such for Mexico! I hate to smile, so it gave me confidence I didn't look that bad doing it!

 

Your wrist coils turned out great!!!   I love those bags too, they are very fitting.  I love the spanish language! so sexy!  Your guests will love those. I don't blame you for waiting for a sale.  Do you know how often they come around? if it doesn't, could you duplicate that onto say, vistaprint? 

 

7 months will fly by, trust me.  It was 7 months out (last July) when I said 'man I have to wait 7 months' and to have these 10 months back and still have all the anticipation of waiting - it goes so fast!

@calgarybride2015 Wow!! 30? that's amazing haha. I think it was 17 here yesterday. I still can't complain, but your weather sounds even nicer! It's hard to predict though because last week it was below zero here. The weather has been all over the place.

 

You not like to smile?! I'd never know from your pictures. You look like a natural :) It will definitely be helpful for practicing pre-mexico. We've never had a professional shoot before.. and I know Chester will definitely be uncomfortable because he's more shy and sometimes awkward haha.

 

Thanks! I'm really happy with the wrist coils too. I wasn't even going to do any, but when my friend suggested it I realized what an awesome idea it was. I think that wedding chicks has their sales over holidays (July 4th, Labour Day, Black Friday etc) I googled it and that's what I noticed. Usually it's worth waiting for too because it's 40-50% off. That will help out a lot since the bags are 6.25 a piece. I also thought about vistaprint, but it won't be much better in price since their tote bag price is $10.

 

It's crazy how time flies. It is making me panic a little bit haha.. Now I kind of hope time slows down a bit so that I can work on my fitness!! lol

@perianjay   Ours is all over too, I think today is 15 and rain!  But we had a really nice winter, considering the past ones, so I think this year I have really nothing to complain about!

 

I don't, those are all because of practicing ha!   Trust me, when we went to do our engagement shoot we were giggling and laughing like school kids!  Mexico was less touchy feely actually, or maybe we just were used to it.  It was great practice!

 

Well hopefully another sale comes around soon!  Labour Day would still work for you, but hopefully there is one sooner!

Hey girl!  Your wrist coils are epic!  So fun! 

You are doing soooo well.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, you are doing such a great job putting together your wedding.  My wedding is literally around the corner and I feel like your thread really got my butt into gear.  It really inspired me to get organized.  Super normal to start feeling the crunch of time but you are doing well and 7 months is a lot of time. 

 

I was waiting for the wedding chick sale too...but alas my time is up for that.  We actually decided to not go with a tote bag because the hotel already gives out tote bags so we didn't think it was worth the $$.  Omg, I might print my wedding logo and iron them on the princess bags in the back part that is already blank!!!  That would be such a money saver.  literally just came up with that idea right now.  ouuuu

 

Anyway, just wanted to say, good job!  You have gotten a lot of the bulk of the work done and you are giving yourself a lot of time to focus on the work outs :)

@veryvalentine Thank you!! I need to remember that I seven months is still a good amount of time. I guess i'm not too worried about the actual wedding plans as much as I am about fitting into my dress that I bought two sizes too small! haha. I'm unbelievably worried about it. I lost 4-5 inches and I have been at a bit of a plateau and my dress is still no where close to fitting.

 

Ohh really good idea about ironing it on the bags!! I think Palace may give totes as well if I remember correctly. When I stayed at Moon Palace I got a woven 'jute' tote, but that may have just been because we stayed in a concierge room. Are you giving your guests any OOT favours?

@veryvalentine They totally are. I really hope they post a real sale soon. I know the Hola Amigo bags have gone down in price to $5, but still not good enough haha. I need them less than that!
