Hey Ladies!

 

I'm so sorry I didn't get a chance to respond individually to each one of your comments as I normally do, but things have been pretty crazy!  I'm really glad that I took a few days off before we left as we had so much to do.  

 

We leave tomorrow!!! I honestly cannot believe it!  Like I know it's happening, but for some reason it's not clicking with me.  

 

It's been pretty busy since I've been off from work.  In the last three days I've:  packed everything, printed all relevant documents, gotten all of our money together, bought some last minute things, packed my carry-on, got our marriage license for our legal ceremony when we return, confirmed all of my details with my TA and the WC at the resort, and the list goes on lol.

 

All of the stress, anxiety, planning, and joy has lead to this point and I feel really overwhelmed by emotion.  A small part of me wishes that I had more time to enjoy it all, but a large part of me just wants to experience it.  

 

I can't wait to share details with you all when I get back! 


Oh I almost forgot.  I got my nails done today.  I ended up getting a shellac mani/pedi based on advice from some co-workers.  The woman at the salon put like 4 coats of it on so I'm hoping that it won't chip or anything while I'm down there.  I know that my wedding colour is red, but as the bride I really wanted to stand out so I picked my favourite colour (pale lavender) for my nails and an awesome design a friend showed me.  I wanted something a little nontraditional.  

 

What do you think?

Yay!!! Thanks for the last minute post. I totally feel your emotions! Remember to slow down and take it all in :) have a freaking blast and we can't wait for you post all about it :)

Your nails should do great. Shellac is generally cured under a light so it's a pain to get off :) I think they are fantastic. I would totally have done the 'I do' as well. Gorgeous idea. Good luck

Oh wow, you leave tomorrow?!?! I'm so excited for you. I'm glad you were able to get so much accomplished beforehand and that you were able to take a few days off. I love your nails! Shellac is really good. They last forever on my toes ;)

Well I wish you all the best during your wedding week. Early congratulations to you both and I can't wait to hear stories when you get back

I hope you're having an amazing time!! I can't describe how jealous I am haha. Enjoy every moment because it all goes by so quickly and then you wish you could turn back time. 

 

I'm late in answering, but yes, we brought a steamer and we used it a lot, especially on the wedding day to do touch ups on my dress and the bridesmaids' dresses. 

 

I can't wait to hear about your wedding!!
