@perianjay @deecol

I kind of like that it happened that way now...seems only fitting! I was only upset at the fact that I didn't get any sensible pictures with my Two Nan's :( ... but what can you do!

What an adventure!  I love that you had the David's bag out for street cred!  You sound like such a positive person to turn it into a fun story.

roflmbo OMG! You really do have the worst luck, don't you!! I'm sorry - I don't mean to laugh (I'm sitting here chuckling!) but it's just so typical of AC first of all; and so typical of AC second of all..... and - well you get the idea. I've had the same thing happen on a flight to Saint John but with Jazz. My sis in law is a flight attendant with Jazz (small world). I heard about the cold weather in NL. Weird summer on the east coast for sure.

 

The important thing is you did your ceremony, the important people were there and you have a great story to tell!! When all is said and done, if you don't find a way to laugh about it, then you cry and that's no good.

 

Glad you're going to make it Friday!! Looking forward to it!!

what a crazy journey but you're a now married!!!! Congrats!!! 

 

I hear you about flight issues to the east coast. Trying to figure out how to get Sean's family off PEI and to Mexico in January was A LOT harder than I anticipated! Also that suggestion about flying to Moncton and then driving to Newfoundland....I have no words to say just how ridiculous that suggestion was...

Oh my gosh, girlie! You poor thing. At least you're married!! How does it feel? That is definitely a funny story that won't matter in the long run - and at least you still have Punta Cana to savor - in clean clothes nonetheless :)

 

CONGRATULATIONS! I hope all is going well with planning otherwise!

@veryvalentine

 

Totally used the Bag for street cred! lol! and it worked I got way more help the second day! Probably helped that I looked like shit from staying up all night!

 

@yycbride2016 @calgarybride2015

 

It will definitely be a memorable story! Thanks for the congrats! 

 

@acw271011

 

It really seems like I have the worst luck doesn't it! nothing you can do but laugh...even when it was in the moment I want to laugh at the irony of it all but I had to muster up some tears to get taken seriously... after all what bride would be laughing! lol! My FI thought I was losing it I was half bawling and laughing!

 

@snswedding2016

 

Moncton! WTF right? too funny! I hope the weather is good for you in January!

 

@beckys98

 

Not sure if the marriage counts...I had been up for 36hrs when I signed the papers...not sure if I was of sound mind! lol! It does feel a little different even though we are both not calling ourselves married until Punta Cana. He does call me wifey every now and then tho and I like it :) I'm going to need everyone to cross their fingers and toes for me to get to Punta Cana without trouble I think! lol! Let hope my luggage makes it there!

We bought a dress bag to take to Mexico with us.  It was supposed to protect the dress.  The night before we left I had it all packed and ready to go until I realized that I would have wayyyy more street cred if the airline staff saw David's Bridal bag and the white and puffiness of the dress bag.  I didn't want to miss out on any extra perks and I knew that if they saw the dress I would be likely to get even better customer service!  They gave us a shout out on the plan and alcohol the whole way to Mexico. #StreetCred    yay  :)

@Meandhim

ha great idea on the bag! Never even thought about it. just might ditch my whichacallit bag (you know, those black ones) in favor of a DB bag! Still have mine from 2011 but I'll tell you - it took a beating! lol Since my shoes are supposed to be ready this week I might buy one when I go in to pick them up!
