        Congrats on finding the suit!! My FI is being difficult with his! He doesn't want anything too light because thinks he will look too pale and pastey and I don't want him to wear anything too dark because I wanted to keep the color the same as the groomsmen's pants (which is a tan/khaki color). We can't seem to find anything in the middle!

          Hey Ladies;

          Just checking in with you guys to see how's it going. I'm getting very nervous as the time is getting closer and closer. I feel like there is not just enough time in a day to do what I need to do. My entire wedding party, with the exception of my kids are out of town and sometimes I get NO help. Anyway, hope everyone's planning is coming along....

            I feel ya.. I have had ZERO help. My wedding party all lives far away so they have no idea how much work I have been doing! I can't believe how close it is either. I am so excited. I have almost everything done. I am basically just finishing up the welcome letter and the OOT tags and placecards.
            What do you have left?

              I have the last dress fitting on 8/29. I have just completed sending all my thank you card for the recent briday showers. I'm packed and I have to pack my girls up too. I guess what is bothering me is that Septmember is such an overwhelming month for me. My son turns 18, My youngest turns 9, my bday is the 12(guess no will have the time or money for my BD) and I just feel like I got no support.
              I think i'm missing just the little things but I just can't figure it all out. It's like a bluuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......

                      finalize ceremony and reception songs and burn to CD
                      make table runners using hem tape

                      FI needs to book our rental car
                      we need to finalize choice of our first dance song

                      shockingly we just booked our accommodations for the Oahu & Kauai honeymoon last week! but it worked out because prices dropped and we got a private rental home for the Oahu part of the trip for a steal at the last minute Waialae Iki Ridge Resort vacation rental in Honolulu

                      I picked up my dress this weekend

                      latest weight loss is 32 lbs! dress is looking great!

                      Got a corset in the mail from ebay....it is making my waist fabulous in the dress!

                      I finished an initial draft of the ceremony script ...adding on some things to what the pastor sent me...FI needs to review

                      Got my non-bridesmaids gifts

                      My shower is this weekend...they told me to pack an overnight bag and brings several outfits for different scenarios and I have no idea still where it is or what is going on!

                      Some delay on progress this weekend as we fell out over all the things I need help with not just for wedding but I've fallen behind on housework but he has been playing freakin Playstation with his cousin for multiple nights and not helping out at home or doing his wedding tasks. Friday, We got into it and both were like lets call it off and we told our moms and were packing his stuff (half of it is still piled up by the front door now). His uncle kidnapped him and gave him a good talking to and we made up and all is well again. Well until we start talking about the prenup I want and opening a joint account...then we are disagreeing again!

                      STRESS! I need to go for some of my spa treatments!
