@vancouverpetunia  OMG - really????? So why can't we do something with whoever can get there??? What dates? Oh shoot..... please don't say it's when I'm in Mexico.....

 

@acw271011 You're so sweet :) Actually, it will be when you're in Mexico. Oct 16 - 20. And as much as I would love to meet some of you lovely ladies, I'm pretty jam packed visiting my sister & her family, as well as a couple of friends, and attending some work meetings/events. I'll be staying near Spadina & Richmond, though, if anyone is floating around... perhaps an impromptu drink if there's time?  :D

Well Michael Hill finally came through and I picked my ring up tonight. At last!! I'm not totally 100% happy with it but at this point it is what it is. With the money that was spent it should have been handled better and I'm disappointed after them being recommended so highly. I love the ring though. I had hoped it would fit better with my wedding ring but the end result is still really pretty, and when I add the two small rings I think the overall effect is nice.

 

Sorry for the lousy pictures.

This is the new ring with my wedding ring.

And here it is with the two small rings that will be taken to Mexico.

 

I also had the menus, door hangers and oh sh!t kit toppers printed today and they turned out really great! Another thing off the list.

 

Ladies night tomorrow night and dress fitting on Saturday!! Finally nailed down our photo schedule too! Thank goodness! Struggling with that but we upgraded the photo package which gives us an extra hour and a TTD, and upgraded the video package too which also gives us a bit of extra time. I don't want any stress with this. I want the day to be easy, relaxed and fun. I came too close to not being here to be able to do this so the fun part is important.

I think your rings look fabulous. Wish I could see them in person to really appreciate the color differences. What aren't you 100% happy about?!

Glad things are coming together. You will be in Mexico in no time. Have fun tonight.

I agree with Kim, your rings look great! I tried to see what you may be disappointed with but I didn't see anything. There's obviously something you're not happy with but I just wanted to let you know that I couldn't see anything and think they loom great!

And I can't believe your day is quickly approaching! I have my dress fitting this Saturday too. My first of three appointments.

Oh and you're also using Samuel Luna right? What does your photo schedule look like? And did you opt for video from him too?

Thanks ladies. I love the ring truthfully. It was such a surprise that Doug did it! We definitely had to get my e-ring fixed one way or another and I had mentioned wanting to get it reset but I really didn't believe he would go for a whole new setting. if you look at my wedding band with the new ring I was hoping that the sides would sit together better. If you look, the new ring is hanging over the side, and I'm afraid it's going to irritate my fingers. It does feel a bit odd but I haven't had my wedding band on for 3 weeks so it might just be that. I'll see how it goes.

 

 

@Wafflesmom yeah the schedule was a struggle simply because we're off site from the resort. Initially Valentin wanted $435 to have Samuel onsite then $105 for each of the Styling Trio people. It's for a grand total of 2 hours!! That's what I couldn't get my head around. If we were onsite at the resort, that's totally different. I would pay whatever fees were needed since we would be using all of the resorts resources. But we're not. So we were looking at a half hour each way into PDC and that would be times 3 - in for hair/makeup and back to get dressed, then back in again to Grand Coral. Grand Coral doesn't have a dressing place which would have been perfect! Thankfully Joyce talked to the resort and they're allowing us to have them in for day passes instead of the outside vendor fee, which saves both time and money. Big relief!

 

@cagarybride2015  I know! Thanks. I wish there was a way we could get you in on the night out too!!

 

@perianjay  Looking forward to tonight too!! It will be nice to see everyone again!

 

Ooops @Wafflesmom Sorry I forgot to add our schedule. Just ignore the references to "bride" and "groom". I tried using our first names and everyone got all confused. In Mexico a renewal is just as if it's a wedding so I've given up trying to separate it out. Go with the flow!!!

11:00 to 12:00 Guest hair and makeup with Styling Trio

12:00 to 1:00 Guest hair and makeup with Styling Trio

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
