              I know this is unrelated to anything yall are talking about but...
              I jut bought my wedding dress!!! I went in to look because everyone said I should start looking now because it is a "process." Well I am very easy to please and just bought one off the rack! I didnt originially care what my dress looked like I was just waiting to see which dress everyone was like "wow when thye saw it on me.(my 2 sisters and mom went) They picked out really puffy, lace, beading and all kinds of other dresses. That is not my personality at all! EVeryone I put on I laughed at!!! I mean I am a PE teacher.... i dont do lace. I saw a girl next to me trying a dress on and I told the lady I want to try on that one. She said um ok... good thing the girl next to me wasn't my size I would have had to fight her for it!! But I got it put it on and fell in love!!!! its simple spaghetti strap that crosses in the back (tight around the rib cage and waist then flows out. No beads no lace just simple elegance... SO now I have a wedding dress in my closet that I have to stare at for 8 months! AHHHH

              O and the bra situation is another story!! Did anyone have an ordeal with that? You know how they give you the strapless bra that is a corset like thing aand apparently you where them underneath the dress. (Had no idea sorry) Well i told her i was a 34 D she did not believe me and brought me a 34 C it was so big around my body it was coming off with the dress. So then she brought me a 32 C. Perfect fit around the body but i was popping out of the top!!!! She said " o goodness". My response I told you I was a D. SO finally 32 D...yay that ordeal took longer than to find my wedding dress.

              Just thought I would share my crazy experience!!

                toya, i wish all the time that i can hire a professional and they could help me focus some of my ideas! i watch those darn wedding shows on tv with the super expensive professional people and get so jealous. but their weddings only last one day.. whereas our DWs will be a whole EXPERIENCE!!

                jmcaulay.. that is amazing that you were able to find a dress of the rack! not everyone has that kind of luck! i had no idea about the bra thing either when i went to try them on! the sizes are super funky, but man if you find one that fits it makes the dress look that much better! do you have a link to your dress online or a picture you could post??

                  I have tried to look for my dress online... but no luck finding it. The closest one I could find was this one. The only difference is the straps criss cross in the back.

                  Hope the website works...

                    Another thing....
                    I have not decided on the wedding gazebo or the beach. I am trying to be the most efficient with my money and it comes down to decorations for gazebo $350 and decorations for beach $350. Is anyone doing the gazebo without any decorations? I am not sure what it will look like.
                    I was also dead set on being barefoot/ flip flops. I mentioned this to my fiance he said nooo way! He wants me to wear heels. He said our pictures will look terrible if I dont ( he is 6'5 and I am 5'5) He said we have too many pictures already with just my head and half his head cut off! Haha
                    So now I am torn...

                      Jmcaulay! For starters, congrats on finding *the* dress! I tried on only 3 dresses and then said "order this one" haha

                      About being a barefoot/sandal bride... maybe you could make a deal with FI that you wear the sandals (or nothing) for the ceremony, and wear heels for the pro pics? That way, everyone is happy :)

                      What decoration do you speak of for the beach being $350? If you mean the huppa, you can get that (basic, only white linens) for $150... and besides, why would you want more than that? The beach is gorgeous as is! :) I can't help you about the gazebo though, since I'm a beach bride, but I have heard girls talk about not getting the gazebo decoration so I think its do-able! Its whatever you want, its your day!!

                      Ladies, what bra should I wear with my corset back dress? I am thinking I might not use the panel in it, since it would be more beachy... hehe BUT... I have the smallest boobs ever, so I wanna add a little oomph!! ideas?
