    August 2010 Brides!

    We leave for Ireland tonight! I can't believe the time is finally here.
  2. I paid for their dresses, and they are paying for alterations - plus, I'm paying for hair and makeup. I'm in a position where I can afford to do it, and they are doing me a great honor by coming all the way to Ireland for my wedding. On the other hand, it's totally acceptable and rather common not to do it, too. Considering the expense of weddings and how tight finances can be, I'm sure good friends would understand about having to buy their own dresses. I know I've bought quite a few of my own bridesmaid dresses in the past!

    Postage Vent

    How awful! I didn't trust them and had my invitation weighed at 2 different post offices. Then when I brought the invitations in to be mailed, I had then weighed again. I'm a control freak - but I'd heard horror stories like this before.
  4. We reluctantly did a registry - if we didn't, I know that FI's family would have given us gifts that would most likely have not been anything we could/would use - even after telling them not to give us anything. I haven't 'advertised' the registry - when people ask, I tell them... along with "You really don't need to get us anything. Really."

    We had a get together today with everyone who's going with us to go over the itinerary. It's starting to feel very real! We leave for Ireland in 4 weeks. All I can say is, Thank God for our planner. She is worth her weight in gold.
  6. KGirl, I love, love, love your cake!

    I can't even believe we leave for Ireland in less than 2 months. I think I'm in good shape, but I have a panicky feeling. Once we get the final counts in next week, we'll be able to finalize the rest of our plans. It amazes me that there are still people who aren't sure whether they're going or not. :-)
  8. I am so, so sorry, Andrea. I can't even imagine how devastated you must be. Take a deep breath and keep doing what you're doing. Your wedding might be just the thing your family needs. In the worst case scenario and your family can't come, know that they still will be there with you in spirit. Stay strong - we're all thinking of you.
  9. We decided to forego gifts and treat ourselves to spending the night at a nearby Irish castle after our civil ceremony.
  10. The metric conversion chart is a great idea!

    Engagment Party

    Our matron of honor and best man (who happen to be married) gave us a wonderful engagement party last year. We had a blast!

    Palette Poll

    I agree with Carly - the lime and aqua play off of each other really well!

    Jannae, I love the Tejani bridal jewelry! I'm so excited. I had tried searching Etsy but was overwhelmed by it and didn't see anything I liked, except in one storefront.
  15. Oh, Karen, I love, love, love your jewelry! I just sent a request to BGB Jewelry to make earrings for me. Thank you for sharing!
