Sorry I've been MIA the last 2 weeks. I've actually managed to squeeze in 3 job interviews, been offered a job and turned it down! We're down to less than 3 weeks until we leave for Mexico and 3 weeks today is our anniversary, and Joyce has told me not to panic! lol I have no idea why... Me? Panic? Not at all, except that life gets in the way and there just aren't enough hours in the day! Other than that, it's all good!

 

I'm still walking around with no wedding band. A bit of drama over that and they're now saying this Thursday. I thought it was so simple and that I wasn't asking a lot. I just wanted my wedding band properly sized, the guards removed, my new ring the right size and then solder all 3 together to make one ring. Not so simple. We went to pick it up and they still had it in 2 pieces, with the guards back on my wedding band! Not good. So they're trying again but it was supposed to be ready this past Saturday, then today and now Thursday. Uhh yep. Panic is setting in.

 

Dress fitting is this Saturday and I'm absolutely up for that. The weight I wanted off isn't. So I'm on the hunt for spanx. Yuck. I had to go shopping on the weekend for a strapless bra as if that wasn't bad enough! But it's done. The sides of the dress are see through so I really had to be careful what I got but hopefully it works. Guess we'll soon find out.

 

I have all of my bags, my jewellery, blue shoes, chair sashes and tablecloth and a couple of other bits and pieces at our son's in the US but getting a visit scheduled to pick it all up has been more drama. I wanted so much to try to get the trailer out for the thanksgiving weekend just for a rest up before the madness but that fell through and we are now going to the US and attending birthday parties for a to be 9 yr old and a to be 5 yr old. Oh joy. I love my grandsons to death and could squeeze them til they pop if they'd let me but when it comes to their birthday parties.... step aside and get out of the way. They're boys after all and rowdy just does not begin to describe it! Thankfully it's only for 2 of the days of the long weekend and we get to be home for the holiday. Peace and quiet. And packing, and guest bags, and whatever else needs to get done. And then we'll be 6 days from leaving!

 

I ordered a few things from Etsy that finally arrived. I found a garter shop that intrigued me and here is the result. Doubt I'll get to wear it under my dress since the colours are so bright but that's ok.... there is always the nighttime..... lol

Our cake top arrived too. I had to leave it wrapped otherwise I'll never get it re-wrapped so I don't know if you can make out the details. But I absolutely LOVE it!! It's absolutely what I wanted and definitely so Doug and I. We're only (hopefully) about 5 years from retiring so this cake top is all about us. Sorry the pics are so bad but it's hard to get them through the cellophane that they're wrapped in.

The bottle of beer and glass of wine.

 

The Etsy seller even include a bit of glue to stick the bottle of beer and glass of wine to their respective chairs and the flip flops get put right beside the chairs once it's unwrapped.

 

I also found some coloured paper straws. I found a website called Weddingstar. For those of us in Canada, they're located in Alberta so you pay Canadian shipping and prices. They've got a pretty decent sale and if you're looking for BM or GM gifts they have a couple of ideas, along with the usual cake top stuff and a few reception accessories.

Looking forward to the GTA ladies night on Friday! We'll have @@snswedding2016 back from Azul Fives and @@diadiamond back from her Cuba wedding so lots to talk about. And that's it for now except I need to get my butt in gear and get my printing done of our beautiful menus, the door hangers and my bag toppers. Like I said - not enough hours in the day....

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
