haha unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I didn't have a drop of alcohol that night since I was struggling with my sickness so I have no excuse for that picture. If I was drunk, it would have showed though. I would have looked like I was seizing instead.

I'd LOVE to go back and have a few drinks and get down on the beach. It was so fun so I could only imagine how much more fun it would be if I weren't trying to forget I was sick. I totally just put on my happy face and forced myself to have a great time. I'm glad I did and didn't allow myself to be a whiney baby like I normally am when sick.

Awww...thanks Melissa. I just wish I wouldn't have hiked my dress up like that while walking down the aisle. I was so worried about falling down the stairs, I guess I forgot to drop it back down. Oh well- at least my feet are cute. haha

I hope to get my pro pics soon! The contract says 3 weeks (which will be this THURS!) but I haven't heard from my photog even though I emailed her like a week and a half ago. I'm not going to hold my breathe that they will be here soon. I will still continue to check my email 50 times per day though.

I really wanted to thank everyone for their nice comments. I know I had said this before in another thread, but I had planned on loosing a bunch of weight before the wedding- obviously that never happened. I have been really insecure about my weight- I've gained like 50lbs (probably more) in the last 5 years and I have no idea why. I will be seeing a doctor soon because my mom and sister have been diagnosed with thyroid problems. Their doctor thinks I have the same problem- we shall see.

 

Anyways, it means a lot to me to read everyone's nice compliments. My weight was probably one of the hardest things I have had to deal with during the planning of the wedding. While I felt beautiful the day of the wedding, I have a hard time looking at pictures. I'm excited to see the pro pics, but also a little scared. In the meantime, thanks for all the compliments.

Rachel I wanted to come to this thread when I had the time to give it the dedication it deserves. The pics are awesome, I love them! You look absolutely beautiful and I am not just saying that, I truly feel that way. You radiated happiness and that is what makes a bride the prettiest she can be.

 

I can completely understand feeling insecure about your weight and wearing a bridal gown but I have to tell you that you picked one that flattered you beautifully. You look absolutely stunning and your hair was perfection! I heart the earrings btw, they are fabulous.

 

I'm so glad you had a wonderful wedding and I love the commentaries on your pics. I have no doubt that your pro pics will be amazing and will capture the beauty that you radiated that day. smile159.gif

Rachel, I have never seen photos of any celebration ever where people, including you, had more genuine or brighter smiles! You looked beautiful and fabulous and best and most important of all you radiated happiness and so did your groom and your guests!

 

I'm glad you "felt beautiful" on your wedding day because you most definitely looked it. I know everyone struggles looking at pictures of themselves because you zone in on what you don't like, but take those scrutiny goggles off when you look at your pictures again -- go see what everyone else is seeing! It's too beautiful and fun to miss!

    • 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.
