    I heard these things too and brought them to FI attention. I haven't noticed any changes in him except for extreme irritability in the beginning-this was probably due to the fact that he couldn't have a cigarette! He actually quit taking it this week so hopefully we won't have to worry about any of the complications.

  2. My FI quit just after the new year. This is his third try (and hopefully his last)! He went on the medication Chantix and so far I've seen him do much better than in the past. It has a nicotine blocker so it helps get you get over that hump when you feel the need for a puff. Different things work for different people but give it some time and pretty soon you'll probably be repulsed by the smell of smoke. Good luck!

So sad to think that people have to be nervous as they go about their daily business (just like the Lane Bryant shooting a few weeks ago!).
    Where do you live? I grew up in Rochelle-about 15min west of NIU. I know a lot of people who went there and still go there (I also lived in Dekalb for about 3 years). I can't believe something like this can happen so close to home! I think I'm kinda still in shock about the whole thing! What can we do to stop this madness? It seems to happening everywhere!

  4. Love your grandparents photo!! My grandparents had a similiar pic as well. Their 50th wedding aniversary was about 2 1/2 years ago and my grandma hd me try on her wedding suit. Here is a pic of me wearing it. (Don't mind the goofy smile!) The color was robin's egg blue. It fit pretty well only the sleeves were a little short. Pretty different than what I'm going to be wearing!

    Congrats on finding your dress!
    I was thinking the same think about a cathedral being too traditional for the dress. I haven't tried a fingertip on with this dress yet so I'll have to do that. I still have that birdcage in the back of my mind though!

    As far as the train, I would say whatever makes you feel most comfortable. Do you plan on keeping it on for a long time, if so a cathedral might be too long. I'm sure it would look fantastic during the ceremony though.
    I only plan on wearing it for the ceremony. I do worry about the cathedral blowing in the wind because we will be outside, but the women at the bridal shop suggested that because its so long I could gather it in my arms if it blew too much.

  7. I found my dress! It's soo different than all the others I had been trying on! I had those nervous second thoughts about it earlier today but I think I'm over that now. (I hope thats normal!) Here it is on the model...the bottom is actually a mermaid shape but you can't see that in the pictures.


    So my next question for all of you is what type of veil? I tried on a cathedral length that my mom loved but I would love a birdcage veil. Not sure if that will go with the style of the dress, though. What do you think?

    Thats a darn good point! I agree, I think I'll forget about the spanks. I feel like they just push my fat into another area-its weird! I also will have bra cups sewn in. Ahh, long gone are the days of high school when I could just go bra-less in my prom and homecoming gowns.

    Thank you so much for posting this thread! FI and I have been debating the same thing. We have been leaning toward getting married here before we leave and reading everyone's responses has helped us to decide that this is the route we're going to take.
