@@vancouverpetunia sorry to hear that you are having wedding guest booking issues. That's so annoying especially now that you're getting close! I'm sure it will all work itself out - somehow it always does!

 

You are in great shape - you'll have all of those items checked off in no time!!

 

Have an amazing time at your bachelorette this weekend!! It sounds like it really fun night!

Good ol' booking drama! I can definitely relate. We had a few guests who were indecisive..we even had two guests that backed out after they paid (the week of the trip) for also.. somewhat valid reasons.

 

Try not to let it bother you because in the end I really didn't pay attention to who wasn't there.. I didn't think of them at all in fact. It your week and you guys are going to have an absolute blast with everyone :)

 

Excited to hear how your bachelorette goes! I also opted out of the cheesy penis theme haha. I even went as far as telling my girls that I didn't want a veil, sash etc.. I just didn't want the attention.. although somehow people still knew! lol

You will have a blast :)

haha I probably would have preferred not to be dressed up but my girls were so excited to go all out and since I didn't ask them to help much with the planning, I didn't want to take it away from them. lol! I just took one for the team and let them put me in a veil, sash, boa...oh and there were penis straws and shot glasses  ;)! @ is right though...people just have a radar for bachelorette parties though...they always find you!

It's funny - I have two friends planning this (MOH and BM live out of town), and they don't know each other. They are very different people. The one is low key like me and is trying to keep things in check. The other one, if she had her way, would have me all dressed up, doing "buck a suck" scavenger hunts on a bar crawl. LOL Sounds like it will be pretty tame. The low key friend told the other one not to dress me up, but I will be okay with a boa or something simple (I once attended a bachelorette party where the bride was dressed in an old second hand wedding dress!). I hear there will be some games, which hopefully will be fun and not too ridiculous. I will report back!

 

As for the guest drama, it's not all that bad, compared to what many of you ladies have gone through. It's just annoying and I was in a bad mood in general yesterday, so it really bugged me. Thanks for letting me rant - feeling better now! What's interesting about one of the "maybe" couples who hasn't responded is that they had their own destination wedding a few years back (which is where we met), so you would think they of all people would understand how annoying their non-responsiveness is!

 

I managed to hit the tanning salon for the first time in 20 years last night. I ended up with a couple of red "strips" and a white line on my back, which doesn't seem good. Anyone with more experience in this care to comment? Otherwise it seemed fine with no real visible changes. I did 6 minutes in their second lowest strength lie-down bed. I know nothing about this stuff...

Sounds like you went in for too long. I'm very fair and can't do any more than 5 mins for quite some time. That's my guess. Next time go down to 4 and see if that happens.

Erin feel free to vent anytime! I think booking issues is something we can all relate to so we all understand. And I was in the same situation with Derrick's cousin. She didn't rsvp at all and you'd think she'd appreciate the importance since she just got married last year! Guess some people just don't have the same courtesy they expect from other people.

 

I'm sure you'll have a blast at your stagette, can't wait to hear stories! I had the typical sash, veil and penis accessories (including a penis gun) but I'm an attention whore lol When else can I get away with holding a penis gun? Lol

@@vancouverpetunia Could it have maybe been the way you were laying in the tanning bed? Do they have any stand-up beds? Those tend to make things more even. 

When you're laying down in a tanning bed sometimes depending on how you're laying it can come out patchy.. My underarms were the perfect example and I can see it in all my pics lol. My underarms were white and the rest of me was really dark.. It was because I was laying with my arms against my side every time I went tanning. Just something to consider!

Good point @ I always use the stand up bed for that reason. I started tanning a couple weeks ago, reminds me I need to get back at it!

 

@@vancouverpetunia I'm sorry to hear about you're booking drama, I think every one goes through it in some way. I'm at the point where I'm getting things together, still have 5 more people that are apparently booking... There's only so much you can do, as long as you, your fiancé and the important people are there that's all that will matter

I also agree about position. I call them racer stripes down the sides lol

When I'm in a lay down I change positions. So one arm I bend up over my head for half and then switch. My leg I also bend and switch just so I don't get the stripes down the side of my body and between my legs.

 

But If you were red you were in too long from my experience.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
