    Maura, thanks for this info!!! Jorge's cousin actually told himt o head to BR for a suit so when I told him about your suggestion, he goes, That's so funny... Tony said the same thing!
    got my blue undies, just need "bride" bling to stick on them.

    and, we're getting our marriage license tonight!
    I LOVE the idea of blue undies! That is awesome, Dougsgirl! :) Congrats on the marriage license! Big things :)

      I agree, BR has great suits. Hans didn't get one there, however we almost did and I secretly wish we had.

        Jose looks so nice in his suit!

        Jay got his from Macy's, but it doesn't fit him that well....he needs it tailored. It's too long!

          I still cannot work out how to insert more than one quote into my response...

          Dougsgirl I know what you mean by not staying awake.. I am flopping into bed but like the others have been having weird dreams for ages, last one I forgot my earrings and bracelet and my friend was spraying me with a spray tan with my dress on! I haven't had one dream that gets me down the aisle yet, I have forgotten my dress, my hair wasn't done, so many weird little things, I am hoping that all the bad things happen in the dream and when I get there all will be perfect.

          Maura - your shower looks like fun, cute dress and yummy cake!

          one month today until we go to the beach, where hopefully I'll only need to do a few things and can spend 4 days relaxing beforehand.

          I still have to do:
          - programs (decided on the cardboard fan ones I saw on here - think I will be sick of cutting them out but couldn't come up with something original that was simple!)
          - stressing over my hair as I didn't like the trial and now I don't know what I want.. I am fairly plain when it comes to my hair but I know I have to something nice to go with the dress.
          - need to have another fitting, dressmaker hasn't called me, better get on to her
          - clean my shoes
          - finish candy station labels (what was I thinking!!)
          - FI needs shoes.. but he is so fussy that I am thinking he can just do that one on his own
          - buy all the candy (a few taste tests I think!)
          - buy new bikini (eek)
          - hens night (aka bachelorette party) on 21 June
          - decided not to have a shower as everyone (including us) have something on every weekend until the wedding and we have 2 houses full of stuff so it was just one extra thing I couldn't be bothered doing
          - start taking those pre-pregnancy vitamins, everyone keeps harping me about it so best I get stuck into it - although part of me wants to prove a point that I can get pregnant and have a healthy baby without spending too much bother on taking all these extra things.. but knowing me I will succumb to peer group pressure :)
          - buy gifts for the princesses and ushers, thinking pashmina for the girls, no idea what to get for the 10 year old boy..

          oh and for the life of me I cannot remember what else as I have actually misplaced my original to do list so am going by memory! which means I will forget something!

          not long now.. 4 weeks to go .... woo hoo

            Go to the bottom of whoever has posted that you want to quote and click on "MQ" and then to the following post and click "MQ" (as many different people/quotes you want), then his 'POST REPLY' like you normally would, and voila, MULTI-QUOTE :)

            I also keep having cahrazy dreams almost nightly about my wedding. AHH! So exciting!
            I didn't know they had pre-pregnancy vitamins! I am so out of the loop!

                  I got my dress back. I think I would like to wear something like nubra or cup instead of the altered corset.... Any suggestions for low backless dresses?
                  I think my wedding might be early in the morning due to afternoon showers.... and the traditional Fijian Ceremony and Dinner will be around 4 ... what should I wear? I think I might do TTD shots between the ceremonies 11ish and 4ish. Do you think I must wear white or can I wear any color for later?
