Re: big CHECKS!!!

  • congrats on the checks! So much is done! Good Job!

    Honeymoons - I'm sure you've looked into Sandals, that's where I'm going. I LOVE how everything is included. I hope you guys can decide on this soon!

  • congrats! definitely BIG CHECKS!!

    as for honymoons... first thing I did was cross off any ideas that were out of our budget (i.e. flying to bora bora was too expensive so I didn't even bother)... then we made a list of what we wanted. Did we want a fast paced, see a lot of the sights, kinda honeymoon... or relax on a beach with a few excursions?  Once you narrow down the type- then narrow it down to place. If you are getting married in April, you may want to make this a priority, I know our room option at sandals is completely booked for the wk we are there (april2-8).

  • Congrats on the Checks!!!

    I guess it all depends on what you both want to do - relax on the beach or go sight-seeing. A couple of friends have gone on a cruise - the joy of this is that it's pre-planned for the most part for you and you know in advance what the big costs are. We originally planned for Paris then found out how expensive the hotels are, so we're doing it a-la-cart and traveling to other cities. Maybe as a wedding gift you can request for Airline miles - that would help reduce your flight costs :)

  • thanks everyone!!! .... florida mailing system must be amazing bc i sent my invitations out on monday at like noon and some of my friends and family have called me saying they got it already .... and that was yesterday!!! ...

    still trying to get the most done this week since i have off from work and mom is visiting lol ... 

    i just cant seem to find one of those corset bras .... any suggestions as to where to get them .... i tried davids but i didnt like what they had and how it fit me ... and macys, jcpennys and stores like that do not have the corset style where it can shape me like an hourglass LOLOLOL ... gotta hide what isnt lost by the weddnig lolol

    and as for the honeymoon ... i went to AAA travel with my mom yesterday ... and the guy there was AWESOME ... he clarified a few thinngs that i was conteplating with the honeymoon places and we think we have narrowed it down to P*nta Cana, Dominican Republic .... its definitely within our price range and we have never been there .... we hope to make final decisions by the end of this week!!!
