traveling starfish

Recommended Posts

Ladies, Shelley has taken over the starfish, however the mods all decided that because we had a few people go MIA after they had been given a starfish and never sent it on to the next person, it is no longer something everyone is doing. At this point its going to only be active members who are more senior to the forum, but that being said anyone can buy their own starfish. Some people have had to buy a couple of starfish and it is really sad when someone who was promised to have it doesn't get it sent to them in time for their wedding.

Sorry to be a downer about it. If you have any further questions please PM a mod.

Oh yeah...I never knew this and just assumed it was all still a go. sad.gif

 

I totally understand though! How rude of some people to not be courteous to return the favor!!! sad.gif

 

I think I will just buy one for myself, just to be safe...and then I am not sure if I need to keep it or not so I could always donate it..

 

Here is an idea...instead of just giving them to everyone..since apparently the honor system didn't work...maybe everyone can rent them and maybe since they have a vested interest, they may follow through? Then the money can go into a fund for all the BDW gifts and stuff that get sent? Or, they can put up a deposit and get it refunded once they pas sit on....

I will pass along your suggestions to Shelley and Martha as far as senior, its more about being an active member. I think it was just decided that people who only stop by once in a while or are really new, and we don't know them well enough to know that they will not flake.

Lauren, let me see when your wedding is, we have 2 starfish right now, that is it, and there are so many weddings coming up. I know a lot of the girls are buying there own and then passing it on when they are done because we just don't have enough of them to go around right now.

    • 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.
