ok so i bought my civil ceremony dress in february and it just came this weekend along with my big dress... its not that i think its ugly, but now that i have it and tried it on, its really not me... and its a little "old" for me if you know what i mean. sorry no pic of me in it because nobody was around to take a photo. i also felt like it was super too informal even though im trying to keep it simple with the civil ceremony... and i decided just yesterday that i wanted a different dress, kill me now please.

here's the old (which I will probably need to sell now):

its from jcrew and was $195. i figure i could also wear it for my rehearsal, the church part of the wedding (private with our parents at noon on the wedding day in cabo), and then for a TTD so i would get good use out of it? what do you think?

I want to be respectful of the fact that it isn't a cheap trip, but at the same time, I want everyone to be booked so I know for sure what my numbers are and when everyone will be there...any thoughts on this?
I think you should wait until the end of May. You will not have time one month before July to rush and worry about people. Its just not fair to you. I dont think our guest really consider that. I have one that says she is going... but my oot bags are specially made of each of my guest and well... I will be out of country (japan or US) to prepare for them. I dont want to waste my money.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
