I ordered it in white. I figured I will wear a Lei around it and flowers in my hair and it might look beachy.
I love that dress, its so elegant and beachy at the same time, where did you get it?

I'm so sorry about the ring, hope you find it. I always lose things when I try to put them somewhere "safe." I bought a little nightie thing from Frederick's for our wedding night and it came in this tiny little baggy. I had the baggy in my underwear drawer, but then got paranoid (like my FI would ever go through my drawers) and rehid it in my shoe box for safe keeping. Well I then decided I didn't like the shoes and returned them to Dillard's. Didn't realize the nightie was still in the box until yesterday (two months later) when I tried to remember what my "safe" hiding place was. So someone at Dillard's got my negligee and the shoes. Hope that makes you feel better.

As for wedding planning, we have four weeks and are having some major drama with our guests so I just have no motivation to work on the wedding, I just want to be done.

eeeeeeeeeeee! I FOUND MY RING! it was in my dresser and i had put the protective white cardboard sleeve over the red box, so when i went through the dresser before, i didnt notice it. OMG. i am so relieved!

 

i am putting both rings in their boxes and inside one ziploc bag in our bedside table drawer so they wont be separated again.

 

at least all my drawers and my closet and every other place in my house is totally organized now LOL

OMG I am so happy you found it! I remember thinking I lost my e ring one time! FI would be sooooo upset. I would be up Sh-- Creek if I lost mine because there is no way I could afford to get another one! I got FI ring from OVerstock.. infact he will ahve 3! I love overstock! Are you returning the other?

 

MoonPalace - I just ordered the dress from newport-news.com I think it was 59 bucks. I still have my first dress... the davids bridal one and I think I might bring it incase i want to wear it instead, I just dont know what to expect when I get to Fiji! I think I am going to post all of my dresses and let everyone choose what I should and shouldnt wear and when I should wear it! Im so not happy with the dress issue.

I was motivated yesterday and got a ton of stuff done for the wedding OOT bags. I bought bags to put them in (saving money just bought little gift bags and will make little tags for them to make them cute - I'll post pics when I get one done) Also, ordered/bought the rest of the goodies for them!!!!

 

I feel so much better! Now if I can just get my man to go shopping for his clothes wink.gif

Maura,

 

YAY! I am soooo glad you found it, chica! And lucky for you, you had the back up ready to go!!!

 

I have to put my bridesmaids' gift bags together this week. I want to hand them out at my shower which is on Saturday... the day after my bachelorette party. I pray I'm not too hungover. LOL! :)

yay maura! glad you find the ring!

 

 

we just applied for our marriage license this morning!! i was so nervous the whole time.. i mean there's no real reason to be but HOLY SHIT now it actually feels real. i feel like this whole time it's just kind of felt like a really cool vacation where i get to wear a pretty dress- but now it actually feels legal and binding and FOREVER. AH. hahaha.

 

we also set in stone our plans for our legal day. we're legally getting married on the 4th of july at 3pm. my parents are standing for me and mike's best friend and wife are standing for him (his parents are 4 hours away). afterwards we're having delicious greek food that my parents will cook and we're gonna float in the pool all night until we go see fireworks. i'm so excited!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
