That's sweet. She's one hell of a singer! I couldn't even speak my own vows let alone sing. Props to her!

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....

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
