@veryvalentine thanks for the peptalk! I probably shouldn't be complaining about MY fiance on YOUR planning thread! Haha. :P

 

I just looked at our weekends in April and they are absolutely packed, including his "non-bachelor party" weekend trip to Toronto with his guys. So I'm planning to use that to persuade him to plow through some of our to-dos this weekend! Unless we have any last minute joiners I think our guest list is pretty well set so we can really get down to business!

@TinkerSofi

 

We are going to use an iPod - thank you for reminding me that I def need to start settting that up.

My only issue is that our guests are split with some that only speak English, a few that speak both English and Spanish, and then a crowd that only speaks Spanish.  So I'm going to let the FI pick some Spanish songs to so we can have a nice balance. 

 

Can't wait to hear your music picks.   

Most of our guests are Latin and so are we, so we're definitely going to have a big proportion of Spanish songs as well as some english songs. Our first dance is a salsa song actually :)

@beckys98  it's amazing what one weekend can do in terms of getting ahead.

 

I'm trying to maximize the amount of things I can get done and sorted out by end of March so that I feel good about starting April.  lol  April and May are going to fly byyyyyyyyy


@TinkerSofi

 

Aww so are we.  I was born in Canada but half Spaniard and half Mexican and the FI is Peruvian.   quite a mix.

 

What is your first dance song?

Totally! My plan for April is also to buy new summer clothes and just pack them away for the trip so I get a head start on that! I HATE packing so the last thing I want to be doing is scrambling to pack the day before we leave. I'll surely have last minute wedding and beauty things to do so this is one thing I can actually do in advance - it isn't like I need to be wearing summer clothes and bathing suits in Chicago now :)

indeed we are! We've been taking classes for more than a year now and we'll put together a little routine for our wedding :)

 

I don't know how it's going to turn out with my dress and all, but we just felt like it was a good song for us. Juan picked it like 3 years ago haha. I just think it would also be too much trouble to change into a short dress for the dance and then back into the wedding dress, so my dress will have to do haha.

@TinkerSofi I love the idea of your first song being a coreographed salsa dance!!

I'm starting a packing list today because I keep thinking of all these things i have to bring and I know i'll forget half of them if I don't write them down somewhere.

We're starting it in May :) and getting a private lesson from our instructors. I'll let you guys know how it works out. We're at an intermediate level with our dancing but definitely no more than that. We have a lot of work to do!

@TinkerSofi

 

that's pretty amazing.  for anyone that watched the Super Bowl  (Katy Perry's half show) I am totally left shark and have very little dance skills.  It's a miracle I can even do zumba.  I kinda wish that the FI and I did something similar to it, but for me it would create so much extra stress that I'm not I could even handle it.  lol
