@Meandhim Love how you roll with the punches, lady! Congrats on the official marriage! Hopefully you got all of the travel drama out of the way this time so you won't get hit with it for your big trip.  :D

@Meandhim I just read your legal ceremony post and foremost, congratulations! Secondly, that's a crazy story but at least it makes it so memorable. You'll definitely have the most original story lol

I love your perseverance throughout it all and how you managed to keep relatively calm is beyond me. I definitely give you props, especially with the garment bag idea lol. I'm just glad that in the end it turned out well. Hopefully the airline hassles are done and you'll have smooth sailing (well flight) to Punta Cana :)

@veryvalentine

 

I was just saying to my bridesmaid that I feel like I should wear a Bride sash to the airport so I can get some special treatment! lol!

 

@acw271011

 

Having the bag definitely helped at the airport!

 

@vancouverpetunia

 

Thank you! I hope I'm done with the travel trouble for good!

 

 

@Wafflesmom

 

Thank you! It's definitely a story! I'm not sure if its the most original...but its mine...maybe the way I retracted is a little abnormal...

 

When uncontrollable things happen you have to move on...try to see the funny side, the Irony, whatever it is that you can use to turn it in to the stories that make up your life...it's always your choice if it is a positive story or a negative story...I'd rather look back and laugh. I will say its not always easy but it's always worth it.

 

I'm generally a calm person...I avoid confrontation like the plague, I find it's just not worth my time...I say god help the person that actually makes me mad enough to confront them! My FI is the hot head...he loses his SH*T over the most random things...so maybe that's why we are a good balance :)

@Meandhim Love your thread! Your legal ceremony story sounds like something that would happen to me! Love how you never let it get you down and carried on! I would have been in tears and probably called it off! Love your persistence ☺

Your FI sounds like mine! Definitely a good combination xx

You sound like my fiancé who's always the calm and logical one. He always says that there's no point stressing about something that has already happened and to just calmly find a solution. I'm more like your fiancé, I'm reactive and can be pretty bitchy lol

If the resort has regular door knobs I will just cut a slit on the side to accommodate.

I figured out what I am doing with my cake... I get a two tier with my package so it probably won't be this tall but that's ok

I ordered the starfish from coconut beach on Esty and I bought the gold ribbon at Micheals...its champagne gold... I found the inspiration pic on Pinterest

I found a box for our cards at homesense ... I bought these round white tags at Micheals along with the glitter stickers letters and the twine...now I just gotta figure out how I'm going to attach it. I think I'm also going to put ribbons on the sides to keep the box from opening all the way

Everything looks great!!! The door hangers are perfect! I like how you've tied the theme together!

 

Are you planning to be at the BDW meet on Oct 2nd? If so, I'll borrow the hole punch for the door hangers then if it's ok. I don't have many to do - just 10. I'd be able to get it right back to you. I was going to have them printed today at Staples but wasn't feeling well so might try and get them done tomorrow.


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

Ahh your stuff is so amazing! I love the door hangers. I might just have to make some myself since I don't have very many guests! I love the idea and they are so cute. Well done.

The I spy game is such a great idea! I wanted to make a mad libs game for our guests to play but I couldn't get it right for some reason. Good thinking though! I'm sure your guests will have so much fun with that!

I love your cake idea! I pinned that cake too since my theme is starfish! I am considering using my real starfish on my cake because the fake ones seem so expensive.

I also love your card box. So many people have one and I never really considered it. For like 24 people I'm not sure I need it. But maybe for my at home reception. I've even seen some cute boxes as the dollarama! I love what you've done so far! Can't wait to see more of your creations and ideas!
