  1. It's funny that this thread popped back up today! I actually laughed when I saw it because I obviously stressed and obsessed for so many months, changed my mind a million times, and it never mattered because I had to change everything 6 weeks before anyway! Because my planned screwed us over and we had the wedding at home, we pretty much re-planned the entire wedding in 6 weeks. Really, it was so meant to be. Lesson learned...don't sweat the small stuff. When it came down to the day, I could care less what my flowers looked like, what the favors were, etc. It really was all about us and our guests having a great time!

  2. Thanks guys!!! It def was a blast. It was like it was meant to be in NJ. I was a little disappointed that we didn't get a lot of pics at the beach though. It was like hurricane windy outside and almost every picture has my veil blowing like a parachute or my hair flying all over the place! At one point my veil flew off and went sailing down the beach. I think we are going to trash the hell out of my dress in the spring on the same beach so we can get the shots we missed out on.

    I like chiffon too. My bridesmaids are drawn to the satin and charmeuse. I didn't care for the satin as it seemed to formal for my beach wedding. I wanted something more flowy and light weight.
    Oh, well thats good then. Your girls are probably on the smaller side anyway if the sample size is big. My concern was putting a plus size girl in charmeuse. I am a size 14, and I could never pull it off. Thats the only reason I would have gone with something else.

  4. My friend just had the same problem with her wedding last month. A lot of people who got save the dates never got invites, and some people questioned why, but for the most part they understood. With the economy the way it is, people understand. What she did was have primary, secondary, etc lists. As she got rsvp's back that weren't coming she would send out another round of invites. She also made sure not to invite any children unless they were in the bridal party. She also invited singles without a guest if they weren't in a serious relationship or dating someone. Cutting out children (even the teenage and young adults) and keeping it to only the adults saved her a ton of money too.

  5. Hmmm...a few other gems....My best friend wore scrubs with a dr's lab coat. Wrote "proctologist" on it, put on latex gloves, and smeared brown craft paint all over the gloves, lab coat, and on his face. (apparently all my suggestions are gross!) Another good one I saw at a club. He was a "one night stand." He used a cardboard box to make a nightstand and wore it around his body, put a lampshade on his head, and glued condoms and underwear to the top of the nightstand. The guy won 1st prize.

  6. I would just tell her that she would miss so much of your wedding if she had to be responsible for the pictures. How would you get all those shots of you guys getting ready together, the pictures of her reaction as you walk down the isle, etc. Not to mention she would be "working" all day and night. She will probably realize that she would miss out on a lot and not want to do it if you explained all that.
