Yay, you're a married lady now! That's still on my to do list. I've contacted the officiant and just have to get the marriage license from city hall and book the restaurant (and then actually get married, lol).

Thanks for the to do lists - since our dates are almost the same it's been helpful to make sure I'm not missing anything

@krystalball Do you have a date set for your legal ceremony yet? It's kinda fun :)

 

Let's see if I have any updates... not too much. My cousin is throwing me a shower this coming Saturday. I don't really know a lot of about what she has planned. My mom is coming over from Vancouver Island for the day/night, and we're going to stay at my cousin's, so that should be fun.

 

Also, I'm super happy to report that I've now lost 18lbs (since late Sept - this has not been a quick fix!) and my dress that was custom made for me in December has to be taken in a couple of inches around the waist! Only 2 more lbs to go to hit my wedding goal.

 

Otherwise, I'm just knocking stuff off my list...

  • send info to MC as requested (timeline, email addresses so he can ask people for silly stories about us, etc.)

  • undergarments/lingerie

  • hair accessories

  • put together program fans & label/stuff welcome letter envelopes

  • get to the tanning salon! in progress (I can see tan lines now and a co-worker told me I have a healthy glow!)

  • book our honeymoon transportation in Costa Rica

  • start filling out the form for the WC 

  • order place card & table number artwork

  • Finalize seating plan 

  • Figure out signature drink  -  Cucumber Vodka Mojito (I'm not a fan of rum, but I love mojitos made with vodka.... adding cucumber for something different)

  • Draft final email (events for the week, phone plan/apps, meal choice)

  • Dress alterations- In progress. Picking up March 29.

  • Work on playlist - In progress.

  • Book airport transfer from resort to CUN

  • Place cards - in progress

  • Table numbers - in progress

  • Teeth whitening - in progress

  • Make mani/pedi appt

  • Finalize photography shot list

  • Check with photographer on payment (he's a friend and hasn't asked for any money yet...)

  • Figure out if we want to do something special for our vows. I don't think we plan to write our own, but may "borrow" something off the internet.

  • Finalize wedding day timeline. 

  • Exchange money.

  • Print all documentation to take with us.

  • Buy travel toiletries & meds.

  • Buy a gift for my nephew.

  • Shop for a new swim suit (I have some old ones I'm planning to bring, but maybe should get another one).

What am I missing? Help me out, ladies!

I think it's super fun to not know much about your shower. Makes the whole thing even more exciting. My BMs have been super sneaky and although I do enjoy tripping them up from time to time I try not to ask too many questions so I can be surprised. A post-shower sleepover sounds like a great way to wrap up the evening. I hope your shower is perfect :)

Look at you! Congrats on an 18lb weight loss. You'll be able to lose two more for sure. I bet it feels great seeing the results in your wedding dress - and probably in your everyday clothes! What's your secret? MFP, clean eating, workouts? Share!

@vancouverpetunia I'm getting legally married on Friday! As the Toronto ladies know, I was planning on crocheting a reception dress and would have worn that for the legal wedding if it was done in time. Well, work has been crazy for months now so that project got completely pushed aside and I was lucky enough to find a dress this weekend that's the exact same pattern that I was planning to make anyway! This is it  

 

We're all set now to get legally hitched (except I need my FI to get his butt in gear and get the license at city hall this week, lol)

 

Hope you have lots of fun at your shower this weekend - a slumber party does sound like a great way to cap it off!

 

Congrats on hitting your weight loss goal! You looked awesome in all your previous pictures, just going to be that extra bit stunning in your wedding dress  :D

 

I can't think of anything else missing from your to do list, but I'm frankly flying by the seat of my pants at this point. I'm just going to figure the alcohol will be flowing at the wedding and everyone will be loosened up after a few days together so anything I forgot to do won't be a big deal (hopefully I'm not being delusional / missing anything important, lol).

@ashhtayy Awwhh thanks! :) It's been hard work, but it's been gradual and a lifestyle change for sure. I joined an online group that includes workouts to follow, nutrition guidelines, recipe suggestions and a huge group of women supporting one another online. It's been a great experience and it's now just a matter of course for me. They are accepting new members now. If anyone is interested, please PM me for details. I also use MFP a lot! It's exciting when your "skinny clothes" are baggy on you (in a way - in a way it sucks because now I need to buy new clothes!). 

 

@krystalball I LOVE your dress. It's beautiful. It would have been nice to make it yourself, but easier to buy it! :) Have fun on Friday and please post some pix for us. Thanks for your compliments about my previous figure :) I had gained some weight over the last couple of years - not a massive amount, but enough that I wasn't happy with myself these days. I needed to get it off and the wedding was motivation to do so. I'm pretty sure that if we do miss anything or if anything goes wrong, we'll be the only ones to notice. At least that's what I keep telling myself.
