Acw271011 So This Is Not A Planning Thread.... But

Recommended Posts

Wow, that's a logistical nightmare if you had to travel! I'm glad it all worked out in the end

And thank you so much for the photo schedule! Based on your timeline, you're doing the 5 hour package? Did I get that right? We're doing a 5 hour package and I'm hoping that's enough time

Actually we've upgraded to the 6 hour. We'll have him up to 8pm doing pictures but he's staying for dinner with us as well so that's why the end time is a but ambiguous. We'll get done when we're done then we'll sit down and eat, plus he also has to travel to the off site from the resort which is close to 30 minutes so that has to be included too. And that gives us a TTD which I'm not even sure Doug will go for!!

Is the band bigger or my thoughts is it's thicker to house those diamonds. I can see what you mean but it's not noticable and down at look odd whatsoever. I like it :)

Actually the jeweller said last night that it's because we picked a cathedral setting and it's higher than usual. But i wanted it to sit above my wedding band. We looked at a couple and they were so low that when I tried them they completely covered up my wedding band. i told him I wanted something high enough to complement my band since that's what my e-ring was. In all honesty I think they just put it too high. It has beautiful scroll work underneath the halo and I did say that if there was a way to see it, it would be nice and I think they were so fixated on that they didn't look at the whole thing together. We had to explain 3 times what I wanted and I really didn't think it was that complicated.

 

But it's done now. I think it's just a matter of getting used to it. I'm sort of anxious to see if I can tolerate wearing all of the rings together all the time lol. What I would like to be able to do is, if I'm doing something and don't want to risk banging the new ring with my band, is take it off and just wear the thin band from Mexico by itself. I couldn't do that with my wedding band originally because it's an embraceable. It needed something dropped down into the middle to make the whole thing together.

Horrible auto correct in my last post sorry lol

 

Makes sense. I know a lot with the type of ring you got that have the same struggles getting the stuff visable on the sides. I think it's gorgeous and I hope you can handle wearing it all together!!! :)

@@acw271011 I love your rings! So beautiful. As for meeting up in Toronto so funny that you work so close! But I fly into Pearson Friday evening so assume you will be long gone by the time I get downtown. :(

We fly in on the 18th, do our anniversary on the 20th then fly home on the 25th. You're still coming in on the 24th, right? I really hope we can put something together! We also don't fly until 5 on the 25th so not sure what time they haul us out of there to head for the airport but I would thing there would be a bit of time on Sunday before we have to leave.

Well you wanted pics, I managed to get 2. But they are so god awful..... I definitely should NOT have had that last glass of wine on Friday night with the GTA ladies. I actually got on the bus to go home (no trains at that time of night) and called Doug and asked him to meet me since I was in absolutely no shape to drive. And saturday morning was..... ugh. Trying to get out of bed to go for my dress fitting was painful. I think I've had 2 hangovers in my life and I'm pretty sure that's what this was so that makes 3. Not fun. I just wanted to do my dress fitting and get back home and go back to bed for a nap!

 

The dress is almost a perfect fit. It gaps too much in the front so it's being taken in by about half an inch to close it up and then about 8 inches off the bottom as it's really long, and this was wearing my shoes! They are also going to add lace all around the bottom of the dress and down the back seam right below where the corset ties end so it will give it a bit of sparkle. Plus they're making small straps for the top that are narrow at the bottom, widen, then go down the back in a "V" and get narrow again. I really would like something over my shoulders. I also found out I don't need a bra with the dress as it already has cups sewn into it. Mind you.... you wouldn't know it in one of the pics. It's actually just the way the light caught the sparkle across the top. The veil matches closely enough and is the right length and with the little sparkle on it sets things off quite nicely. I'm pretty happy with it all. Except for the hangover.......

Sorry this will be short. I've had 2 job interviews already this week and now one has already asked me back for a second one Thursday or Friday so it would be nice to have something new locked down before we leave for Mexico and being able to walk away from the idiot I work for now. But I'm trying to make up time I've lost so gotta get on the go tomorrow.

I think it's gorgeous and honestly I think the straps will finish it off perfectly. From my bigger breasted perspective lol id feel more comfortable with the straps too :). Can't wait to see it when it's taken up in length! Gorgeous :)

 

Congrats on the second interview. That's awesome. Keep us posted.

Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
