Thanks ladies! 5 days to go and one week today for our renewal! And of course I broke TWO nails!!! It couldn't be just one. It had to be TWO!! So now I have to get them filled because they look so ridiculous. Oh well.
@RivieraBride15 @Wafflesmom Thank you both. The dress actually looks really different now with the shoulders covered, the front closed up a bit and the lace that was added. I meant to get pictures but forgot so I will for sure this Thursday when I put it back on. I'm supposed to be taking it home unless there are a couple of small things. Hoping not because it's all the way out in Guelph and I really would rather not have to go back out there again on Saturday.
@Meandhim it's a little mini hand steamer from Bed Bath and Beyond. it was only $25 +tax and it's the perfect size to hold. @TinkerSofi recommended it in her planning thread and actually posted a pic. I'll see if I can find one and post it. We have one but when I pulled it out of the closet it was much heavier and bulkier than I remembered. The one that I got has it's own little travel pouch too. Actually packing hasn't been that bad. I bought a duffle bag the same as what Marinha had for her wedding in March off Amazon. It was $35 and is perfect for all of the clothes. Soft sided, on wheels with a pull handle and TONS of space. We've packed all of the regular clothes in it plus a few bits and bobs. The dressy stuff will go into the wally bag with Doug's suit. Then everything else will go in a big suitcase. Thankfully we upgraded with Transat to Options Plus and get an extra 10 kg of luggage which means 32 kg each. That's 140 lbs of luggage we can take. Doug says whatever doesn't fit into that amount stays behind lol We also get priority checkin, priority boarding, free seat selection, a bottle of wine and money to buy food on board. They don't give you meals on the Mexico runs anymore. Go figure. You have to buy your food now but we get money towards that with the upgrade. Plus it's a 4 hour flight so no big deal.
@perianjay You are more than welcome and it's all deserved. You do some absolutely beautiful work. I can't wait to see it all in our photos. I meant to take pics before Doug packed it up but it was already wrapped when I thought of it and wasn't going to make him undo it all. I got the eyeball roll with the Mr Right / Mrs Always Right and a "yeah right" comment lol
I had a text from maybeoneday this morning. Her wedding is tomorrow! Yikes! She said the resort WC got them a skydeck weddng for free! It's only the two of them so very small. I think with all the money they take in the resort can handle that!! I can't wait to see her photos and still hoping we can meet up in Mexico but they fly back to the UK the day after our renewal and it's a long flight so at this point it's not looking good. Fingers crossed!
Then we have so many weddings coming up!! You ladies all have to promise you'll come back for visits! I'm going to lose so many brides!
