September 2008 Brides

Recommended Posts

I still have to start on my welcome letters. I wanted to do something similiar as my info brochures, but those took me a while and I don't think I'll have time. I also have to finish adding some ribbon and starfish charms on a few more raffia fans and I think I'm done. I have my second dress fitting this Saturday, then my final on Sept 6th.

 

My FMIL and her daughter just told me they haven't purchased their dresses yet, which worries me a little! Why would you wait until the last minute?!

 

Also, I have to go to the DMV (which may take hours because of the strike going on in CA) because I need to change my address on my license so we can get legally married. We need to show proof that we live together (which we don't yet) in order to get a confinential marriage license. That will take a good chunk of my time smile41.gif

STRESS! I need to go for some of my spa treatments!
Ahhh, I feel you! We went back and forth on our prenup discussion and I didn't even want to see him because I was so angry that he couldn't make up his mind on our prenup details! It was so stressful and so emotional (well, I was being emotional about it). At the end, I'm so happy we did it and everything we came into agreement with. TAKE YOUR SPA DAY!!

I think for the most part I am done too. smile123.gif

 

The only thing that I can think of is deciding if I am going to wear a necklace or not. I don't think that I am going to, but I haven't completely ruled it out yet.

 

It's such a good feeling isn't it?!woot.gif

I pick up my dress tomorrow. The first one was ruined by the seamstress so I found another (which was little tight) but the new seamstress is a miracle worker. The dress fits perfect! I just have to get placecards made and FI's pants hemmed. Yesterday I decided that I hated my flowers and went out and bought new ones and made all new bouquets and bouts. I need to stop looking at the stuff and call it done! I did change the reception room to one with a small dance floor. I am having it at a restaurant and originally planned for only 25 people but now I have 32 confirmed. I figured I needed a larger room. I have officially lost the 20 lbs I was targeting! The waiting is killing me, I want to leave tomorrow! Good luck to all of you, I know your weddings will be beautiful and thanks to everyone that gave me good ideas.

Can I ask how everyone is getting all of their things to your destination? I am flying Southwest and I know I can take two suitecases but I need one just for my shoes!

We are taking four suitcases. Anything that won't fit in my stuff will go with my Mom. smile72.gif

That will be so fun to be on the same flight!

We have 15 people flying with us on the same flight too, so we are using some of their suitcases. So I think when all is said and done I will have a total of 6-7 suitcases =)

    • 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.
