What am I going to do???

Recommended Posts

I hate going to showers! Thankfully I didn't/ haven't had one. (One might pop up unexpectedly though so I won't be too confident.)


Making things out of toilet paper and the silly little games is too much. Some seem to love it, but honestly, that is so not for me!


I feel for you Jen. I hope your family really listens to you. I can't believe they haven't caved yet.


Do what makes YOU happy. I mean really, aren't they planning this for that reason? To honor you and your new bride status?


A group cocktail party sounds like fun. Talk them into that. So much better than making a bouquet out of bows and toilet paper veils. haha

to appease my female relatives, my sister is going to throw a non-shower where they will join me for tea at the drake hotel in chicago (which is super fun and only about $30/pp) the week before i leave for mexico. so much easier, more fun and no pressure to open gifts in front of strangers.
ditto ... abbie nailed it! i had forgotten about the toilet paper dress ... those games ARE terrible! i'm in complete agreement ... i also made it clear to my friends and family that i didn't want a shower either! just not my thing! i think you've gotten good advice from all the girls - and you sound a lot better! i know that YOU know that it's just because your family and friends just want to celebrate with you --- so, a nice cocktail party would be nice (and your FI can be there, too)!

BTW Maura --- the Drake is one of my favorite hotels ever! my FI lived in Chicago, i've been missing it a bit lately! (and if you know anyone looking for a really nice condo to buy - we have one on the corner of superior and orleans!)

good luck Jen - let us know how it works out!

my friends did not plan any stupid games, I think you should make that very clear that you don't want any games.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
