    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):

    and here's the new that i ordered today and should get by the end of this week, (and dont worry yes i will take photos of me in it the minute it arrives):

    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.
