We (or should I say HE) received some packages this week! He ordered flasks & bottle openers from the Chive. Not sure if you ladies are familiar with the Chive - it's a web site of some cult status and very popular among FH & his friends.

 

 

 

We also received custom golf balls for the golf outing he is planning. They say "Mexico 2016". He didn't want anything too specific to our wedding. He works in the golf industry so these were free. YAY!

 

 

 

Question - Do we need to give a gift to our MC? We didn't think about that when we ordered the Chive items. We haven't asked yet, but hoping my BIL (sister's husband) will be up to the task.

 

What a great idea!!! My FI and his buddies love the Chive I'm gonna have to take a look now!

I love your planning thread! The story of how you met is just so cute haha so I think it's very fitting that you're having a destination wedding :)

 

I love the colors you have chosen, we definitely thought about peacock colors at the beginning but then ended up changing them. I also love the pink/orange color palette as it seems easy to find local flowers with those colors. 

 

I was also thinking of delphiniums as an option for a blue flower. I think they're very pretty, although the painted orchids would look really nice too!

Photography

 

I'm excited to say that we have secured a photographer. We have a friend, who is invited to the wedding and who is also a professional wedding photographer here in Vancouver. I wasn't sure if he would be interested, as I figured he might not want to work on his vacation. I also had no idea what his rates were and whether they would fit in our budget.

 

But I figured it couldn't hurt to ask (as my mom says, the worst he could say is "no"). Turns out he is interested and his rate for 8 hours is approximately the rate for 4 hours with most of the local photographers that I contacted! Plus, he'll be on site all week, so we can split that up at no additional charge if we don't need it all for the wedding day (which I doubt we will). Oh, and that rate is in CAD rather than USD so I don't have to pay the exchange rate. Needless to say I'm really happy with everything.  :D

<p>My FH has also ordered gifts for his GMs - he seemed inspired when I ordered the robes. I didn't see what he ordered, so hope it's not ridiculous&nbsp; :P</p>

I got mine too! What a deal and they're so pretty!

That's great news about the photographer. I remember that was one of the things I was stressing about in the beginning of my planning. The prices can be really high for a good photographer in the Cancun/Maya area. Yay! One less stress for you :)

@@acw271011 & @@TinkerSofi - Was there a full moon this past week?!? It seems like everyone has health drama going on.

 

My FIL was driving home to Canada from Palm Springs and had to be airlifted to Portland, OR, for emergency surgery due to an aortic aneurysm. Crazy! He is lucky to be alive (and to have good travel insurance!). Thankfully he is doing well and is back home. But it's a been a weird week. Best to your dad, TinkerSofi, and I hope you are doing better, acw271011.

OMG!! I'm so sorry to hear that and I hope he's doing ok! Sometimes it's just not your time to go I think. I'm glad they caught it on time. Funny enough it was a full moon! Haha it's nuts but I totally believe that people are a little more off

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
