      I know!

      You all will never believe what I'm gong to do!...buy a different wedding dress! I kept having second thoughts about mine, and although it is absolutely gorgeous, it just isn't really what I had in mind. I wanted strapless, simple but elegant. I went to the place where I bought mine and found one that I love. They can't let me bring it back for store credit cause I had it made shorter than usual so I could walk barefoot, but they are going to let me have it for cheaper than they are asking...it was only $299 any way but said I could have it for $199. I guess I will try to sell my dress on the forum or on eBay. The dress fits perfect and I can get the one in the store, so the only alteration will be to hem it cause it is too long even with heels. I can't believe I'm getting a new dress a month & 1/2 before the wedding!!!

              Omg, i thought I was the only one!

              You got a much better deal though.

              I found NEW dress 2 weeks ago but they didn't have my size. Now I have to wait until the first week of October to get my dress and have it made shorter. They said it'll be ready by October 10. Yeah, I'm freaking out! That's cutting it close.

              I'll be selling my original dress on ebay too.

                Hi Ladies!

                I've been kind of lurking on this thread for a while now. I am actually kind of an October bride. Our legal day is October 31st and our Mexico day is November 8th!

                October is right around the corner! You guys are on the ball!

                I wanted to chime in on your watch dilema...FI bought his GM's Stuhrling (sp?) watches on Overstock for very reasonable prices - like $100-$150. They are VERY nice. They came in a great box with all the paperwork and everything. I am actually going to go on Overstock and buy him a watch as a gift as well

                Good luck!

                  I am freaking out. I cant figure out what to get FI for our wedding gift. He doesnt wear watches, and i dont want to buy him cuff links, or a money clip or anything like that. I dont have a clue. His sisters dont have any ideas, and his best freind doesnt know. I am completly freaking out over this. Any one have any ideas?

                    I bought my FI an awesome Fedora hat that matches his suit but I don't think it is enough. We agree we would not spend alot of money but I am looking for something small to give him too. He keeps threatening me with some electronic equipment like a new phone. I told him that it should be something that won't die in a year.

                      I agree, I want to do something timeless and special. But I cant come up with anything
