    nat.... 2 words, chicken cutlets!! at least that's what they look like! you can shove them in your dress under your "ladies" and it perks them up! as long as your dress is tight enoguh in the front to hold them in place (if you have sewn in cups, etc.) you will be fine! here's a link to just one of the VS versions: Victoria's Secret - Gel inserts

    jmcaulay, if that's what your dress looks like it is GORGEOUS!! veryyyy beachy! i agree with nat... sandals for the wedding, heels for the professional pictures. you'll have a hard time walking in the sand in heels though, and if you have a professional photograph i don't think you'll have to worry about your FI's head being cut off! also, either the gazebo or the beach are beautiful enough without decorations at all, so anything you can afford to add would just be bonus i think!

      Thanks girls.... Ill have to talk it out with the FI about shoes and decorations.

      NsBride: The sticky inserts work and give you some shape and boobs for smaller ones. But I know your wedding is in July so if you start to sweat there might be a chance those things can get less and less sticky. I had a friend when we were out all of a sudden caought her gel insert as it was lsiding down. Now if your dress is tight that should hold them in place and work just fine.
      Another idea what I did in high school (when I was an A) for my prom was I had a strapless bra that had some crucial padding and my dress was a tie back like that. So I cut the bra (the chunk out the back) and sewed it into the inside of my dress that way the back still looked beautiful but I had boobs too. It worked like magic....
      So whatever you are more comfortable with and overall looks the best..
      Good Luck!

          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?[/QUOTE]

          Nat, you can also get things like chicken cutlets sewn into the bust of your dress.. that's what I was thinking of doing... I have boobs, but don't want to worry about a bra/straps etc and my bridal shop said they'll do that at my last fitting. not sure of the cost though.

                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...
                I am doing the gazebo without decorations, I think it looks beautiful just the way it is, the extra decor they speak of is the carpeted walk way some flowers to go on the gazebo walls, a ceremony table with a centerpiece etc..... I don't really need all that, I have seen many DPC pictures of weddings with no extra decor and they were gorgeous so I'm not goonna add the extra decor there.

                The beach is just as beautiful, it think either choice would look great. so I guess go with what would really make you and FI happy.

                  I am also thinking of doing the gazebo and I would not be decorating it, as, like Latoya said, it is already naturally really pretty.

                  As for the boob enhancing, I would have seconded ebredhawk's suggestion with the VS inserts. I used them in my bikini for the fitness show (you saw the pics Nat). I really liked the effect as I all but lost my boobs when I did the show. The sew-in inserts may be your best option if your dress isn't tight enough to hold them in.

                  jmmcauly; GORGEOUS DRESS. It looks like the on in the Sex in the City movie by Vivian Westwood. I love it! And I think that is so cool that you are a gym teacher. That must be an awesome job! Did you do Kin in school?

                  Thanks guys for the links to the linens. Tam, how did you find the prices to canada for S&H? Those unit prices look really good!

                    Pricing was Ok. It was about $15 to ship. It's already on its way too. I bought 5 table runners and 40 chair sashes for just under $50 + $15.. in US$.

                    not too bad.

                    What do you guys think of this dress I am going to get tomorrow for $40? Be honest.. not my first choice but good enough for a TTD, esp. for $40!

                      I think that is an amazing deal. If my heart wasn't already set on a specific styled dress, I would've had to grab one up for myself for the actual wedding! If it works for the vibe of your TTD, then I say go for it!
