  1. I'm putting up my wedding dress for sale. Was worn only once for a short time in Mexico. The dress is a size 12 in the Ella line by Essence of Australia. Style #5212 in the off white color crushed taffeta with peekout lace at the bottom and a lace up back so could probably even be from size 10-14. I didn't have any alterations done besides cups put in. I'm looking to get $300 for this dress as it cost me about $1000. E-mail me with any questions or if you want more pics. Our website has all our wedding pics so more of the actual dress on Greg & Amy's Wedding Site Also you can look up the style # on Ella Bridals the measurements for a size 12 from this designer are Bust - 38.5 inches, Waist - 30 inches, Hips - 41.5 inches. The hip measurement is taken 6 inches down from the waist. PM me with any questions or interest. Oh and the hair flowerpins I got from Davids Bridal paid $50 and never used them because I forgot them! and they won't let you return them there!! They are ivory with swarovski crystals..very pretty Make offer
  2. Let me also mention I have the box it goes in with foam for safely mailing
  3. I totally forgot to use this when we were in Mexico for guests to sign at our wedding. If anyone wants to buy it make me an offer and just send me a PM. Thanks!
  4. Hey guys, We made it back and everything went great!! Sorry I haven't been on here until now but everything has been so crazy. We came back Dec 3rd and the next day Greg's grandmother passed away so we had funeral arrangements all weekend and company (along with doing 50 loads of laundry) Because I also went right back to work that Thursday and Friday. So then we are busy with getting ready for the holidays it's all coming up so fast we had to shop and decorate and wrap, bake,xmas parties...etc..ha I don't feel like we've had a day off since we got back. But my pics are up on our website if you want to see them. Greg & Amy's Wedding Site Just click on the pics from Mexico link. We just used the hotel photographer and I think he did an excellent job! We were very pleased. Sorry but I don't even have time to read thru these posts so I hope everyone is doing great!! Happy Holidays!!
  5. Hello, I was married at the Valentin on November 27th..everything was great, the resort was great. The cake we picked out everyone raved about being the best dessert we had. If you want to look at my pics go to our website at Greg & Amy's Wedding Site and click on the pics from Mexico link. We just used the onsite photographer Marco and he was excellent!! Was very pleased with the pics. Any questions I will try to answer but it's really busy right now getting back and all the holiday going ons!

Tomorrow I am heading to the city for the NKTOB concert. YEAH!!!! So exciting. Then on Fri I go get waxed and then to the sex show!!! Not much free time left before we leave now. Cool you are going to NKOTB concert..I'm going to Madonna tonight!! Let me check off my list: Sewing last wild oats Haha So, we leave on Friday. Can't wait!! Thursday night we drive to detroit to stay in a hotel so we are close by. The weather was horrible here yesterday in Michigan snow and icy roads I just pictured crashing right before leaving for Mexico...but I survived the ride home yesterday barely. So, really looking forward to Mexico weather!! Picked up my dress last night and i didn't even have time to look at it..ha I know I'm horrible so I will look at it tomorrow since I'm not going to be home until midnight...crazy week!! Hope everyone's wedding went well....glad to have you back!!
  7. Well, I need help figuring out how to make gift tags for my OOT bags. I want to make something I can tie on with a ribbon or something and says "Welcome to Mexico Jim & Kathy" or etc.. and either have mexican looking style or beach style that I can print out on my computer. Anyone have any idea what store I can go to find this or does anyone have any templates they can help me with??
  8. Sorry girls I've been out sick this past week..hopefully I'll get it all out of my system before Mexico Congrats Tara on a wonderful wedding!! I can't wait we leave 2 weeks from today!! We got Greg 3 new pairs of dress pants this past weekend. This weekend I plan to work on starting to pack some things and finish up the OOT bags. I bought a cute little bridal Jessica Mcclintock purse off of Ebay for $5..never used!! and originally $50..so that was my bargain of the week
  9. Sorry ladies I was bad this week...but I do have a good excuse I think. I've been sicker than a dog and pretty much haven't left the couch for the past few days. I probably even lost weight so it was my bad for not weighing in this week. Maybe I'll have a monumental loss next week!! If I don't gain it all back since I have my appetite back today and I'm ravenous!!

Hopefully I'm getting this all out of my system before Mexico
  11. Thanks so much guys..whew..I feel better. Now I don't feel so bad if I do decide to wear jeans. I'm thinking we can celebrate Friday night. We will be passing out trick-or-treat candy and then going to a neighbor's party. Well, we are keeping it a secret about the legally getting married part except for our witnesses...but they don't have to know we are partying for another reason right?? haha It's just been real stressful lately at both our works so I'm so looking forward to a vacation!! even having Friday off sounds good right now
  12. Lisa, I totally love your dress..it looks awesome on you! Celina your makeup turned out great and the pink wig is hilarious. I wish I would have thought of wigs for my bachelorette because we used to do that back in the day just for shits and giggles..ha It's getting so close it's so sad to know that a lot of you guys will be gone when I may need my full support group as it's getting closer and I'm worrying about this and that and stressing about everything So, FI is so busy at work lately that after our legal ceremony on Friday he may have to go back to work. I don't know weather to be pissed or not. He needs to work more to make money I know he's stressing because they haven't been as busy and money is tight when we need it most..and part of me wants to not make a big deal of it because I want Mexico to feel like our "real" wedding day so we''ll see. Would it be too cheesy to just wear jeans to our legal ceremony though?? I mentioned a dress and he was like..I'll probably be just wearing jeans because I'll have to go back to work afterwards.....hmmmm...interesting..I left the house and went to yoga after that to think it over before I became bridezilla
  13. Thanks girls. I got the hair flowers off of Etsy. I was really happy with them. I can't remember the exact seller but if someone really wants I can try to do a search. BTW Steph I love your dress, it looks great on you!! Wow I'm jealous of you girls that are getting to leave so soon. It's supposed to snow here in MI today so I'm ready to be in Mexico like right now. Can't wait to see all of your pictures!! We have our legal day on Friday (Halloween) I'm trying to figure out what to wear. It will be cold here to wear one of my summer dresses and I don't really have any winter dresses..any ideas?? I could just dress up for Halloween..haha
  14. Wow..sorry those pics are so huge..damn you can really see the wrinkles by my eyes..lol But the shower was fun and Greg's mom and sister and my mom got to hang out more than just meet..so I think they got along pretty good. Can't wait everything is getting so close. Bad thing is we got all the leftover food and I really pigged out this weekend so, so much for the weight loss and dieting I was getting so good at.
  15. Well, I'm finally getting around to posting my hair trial pics..here you go: So, just hoping they can replicate it in Mexico. Also had my bridal shower yesterday. It was a lot of fun and we got tons of great stuff. I got a Kate Spade wedding frame that is just beautiful. Can't wait to use all the new things we got! It was such a great time we had a mexican theme with all kinds of mexican food. My cousin made Margarita pies with tequilla in it and you could really taste it. It was good though was frozen with pretzel crust. I'm going to have to try to make it. My sister had this game called Fantasy lover..was funny. You had to pick a celebrity that would be your fantasy lover...then people had to try to guess everyones..ha 2 people put Greg down and I wasn't even one of them...haha But I said that's not my fantasy it's real life
  16. BTW Celina, so sorry to hear about your dress issues...I bet that is very stressful. I'm sure your seamstress will be able to fix everything up for you. I just took my dress in for alterations on friday and they told me Nov 17th would be done. Well, we leave on the 20th to stay the night by the airport before our flight...so YIKES...nothing like cutting it close
  17. Ok, girls I'm waking up from the dead.things have been crazy at work with our year end. I went for my 2nd hair trial last weekend and I loved the hairdo. I wish I could post here but I can't access photobucket from work..will do later. Probably tomorrow because we are going to economic club meeting tonight to see Mike Huckabee speak and won't get home until late. I have my shower this weekend and it should be fun they are doing a mexican theme. Did I tell you guys they threw me a surprise shower last week at work?? It was really cool they decorated the office all mexican fiesta and especially my cubicle and people were wearing sombreros..ha It was fun, they all pitched in and made a mexican style lunch. Then after work we all went out for margaritas at our favorite mexican restaurant (which I thought that was all we were doing...they tricked me!) And I got a card from work with $100 towards our freezer they knew we wanted to buy...so was really nice!!
  18. OMG! I'm the same way too Tara...I actually thought about anti-anxiety meds too. But I think I am going to stick with good ol' alcohol because I'm afraid of mixing drugs and then drinks later..whew..don't want to be passed out at the reception But yeah, I get all stressed out too just thinking about it..thinking about trying not to cry and trying not to pass out. I'm hoping the alcohol will help. At least we only have 20 guests though and most close friends and family so that helps. Well, I'm going for my 2nd hair trial today at a different place so we'll see how that goes. Trying my hair a different way. I think I may go for this Reese Witherspoon look: Reese Witherspoon with Hair in New Low Formal Bun at 2006 Oscars - Beautiful Hairstyles maybe a little more volume in front though..we'll see. Took my dress in to get the bustle and cups sewn in and she said it will be done on Nov 17th. We leave on the 21st so I hope so!!! Got our legal day set for the 31st and FI applied for the marriage license so we should get that on Monday. Everything is coming up fast!!
  19. Well, I went for my hair trial today and I didn't really care for it. I came home and tried to mess with it some but I'm just not sure..even tried it on with my dress I'm just not used to wearing my hair up I think so I'm thinking of trying a partially up hairdo if that makes sense I already made an appt for another place next weekend..ha Hopefully I won't have to try something every weekend until the wedding!!! Greg is gone on his bachelor party weekend so tonight I'm trying out this new wine bar with a couple of friends. Right now I'm going to do a little shopping, go get some pumpkins, more halloween decorations and then hit the gym. My bad hair day kind of put me in a dismal mood so hoping to lift the spirits. Oct 25th is my shower so the weekends are starting to get busy!!
  20. Danielle, I love, love, love your dress!! I think this is the first time I've seen pictures of it or you in it. Ha..isn't it funny I have big puss faces too on my pics. Hopefully I can do better during the wedding Looking good though girl!! Ok..welcome letters..what kind of things are you guys saying I'm debating on if I make one or not. You guys my burn is killing me!! I have never been burnt this bad in my life. I just pretty much took a bath in aloe vera... My once comfy couch now feels like a bed of nails

  22. Hey girls!! Glad you all liked my earrings...I'm hoping to get them in the mail today so I can see them in person. This weekend is Greg's bachelor party so I'm going to do my hair trial on Sat. and going to try on my dress to get the whole look to see if I like it. Hopefully I'll have my earrings by then too. I'll be posting pics of course. Other than that I think I'm going to have a chick flick weekend by myself. I haven't watched Sex in the City yet and some others like Made of Honor. So, should be nice and relaxing. I went tanning for the first time last night after the gym..and I got fried where the sun don't shine!! Yikes!! I told the girl I hadn't been in a long time and what did she recommend..she said 13 min..so I was like.ok fine. I guess she saw my face and arms but my ass is white as can be..so hurts to sit today!! I should have went in the high pressure beds but I thought I would be ok...thought wrong!!

LMAO! Thanks, actually maybe if you are first starting out and your muscles get really sore after exercising you should take a break. But they say at least 30 min of exercise a day is recommended. Now if I lift weights, I do it every few days or different muscle groups because I'm usually sore after that. But I've been going enough that I don't get sore just from elliptical or treadmill anymore. I think walking may have even helped loosen my back muscles..who knows. But last night I tanned after the gym for the first time to try to get myself a base tan before Mexico and my ass if fried!!! it hurts to sit today. I told the girl I hadn't been in a long time. I guess by looking at me in my workout clothes though she couldn't see how white my ass and stomach are..haha Well they aren't so white anymore. I feel like I have a heated seat at work today
  24. I don't think it's going to be a good week for me girls. I was doing so good since we joined the new gym I had only missed one night in 2 weeks. Then Sat. I was cleaning the house and grocery shopping..etc (yeah, my fun weekend) and somehow pulled a muscle in my lower back so didn't exercise all weekend and went yesterday to try just to walk on the treadmill was painful but did 40 min. But woke up today and I think I'm good to go so I'll probably try the elliptical and weights tonight.
  25. Oh, also forgot I ordered some earrings off of Etsy to wear on my wedding day. Here is a link to them Etsy :: kgarnerdesigns :: Pick Your Colors on Sterling Silver - Crystal Cluster Earrings I got a clear crystal. They shipped on Sat. so I can't wait to see how they look! I don't think I'm going to wear a necklace..we'll see though. I may get a bracelet. What are you guys wearing?? oh also, are you guys all legally married yet?? or are you doing a legal ceremony at your destination?? We are getting legally married on Oct 31st. Halloween!! I think anyways..waiting to see if they do them that day. Seeing as we are getting married on Thanksgiving we want to keep it in with the holidays.. ha
