celina i can't wait to see your dress!

 

so i had my supposed final fitting last night. Only problem was that they didn't do anything about the madonna boobs! So now I go back in 2 weeks for my final fitting, and then go back the next week - 2 days before we depart for mexico - to pick up my dress. I am trying to be OK with this. I am one of those people that shows up to appointments at least 30 minutes early. I do not like being rushed/late. So.... I really hope I can let myself not freakout about my dress, and pray that everything turns out perfectly when I go back in 2 weeks.

 

Oh but on a plus note, I got that pearl necklace and I am in love with it! I wore it to my fitting last night and it is PERFECT with my dress. YEAYYYY!!

Here's a pic of the pre-wedding that I printed on vellum paper and cut down and pasted to lavender paper.

Great letter. I also did a packing brochure and called it "Packing for Paradise" Great minds think alike!

My Mom has started making my TTD dress, and it started off with the intent to make it look like my actual wedding dress, but now it is going to be totally different. I can't wait for it to be done.

Danielle - You look great in your dress. I am so glad to see pics of it. There were a few times that I have had similar thoughts, but then as soon as I try it on or start looking at other dresses, I remember why I love it so much.

I got our Hepatitis vaccines the other day, and I gave them to all of us. Yup, that's right....I even poked myself. My Mom is a nurse too and doesn't think she could poke herself. I was pretty impressed with myself, as it didn't hurt at all!!! LMAO!!!

Everyone has great welcome letters. I still have to finish our welcome books, but I am waiting for a few more pics, and making sure that there are no more surprise guests coming. I just found out that if my Aunt & Uncles trip to Mexico falls through, they are coming to the wedding.
Dam Erica people keep adding on to your group. I cant believe more people keep coming when you are so close to the date. the more the merrier.

glad you like my dress.

I cant wait to see your TTD. I wasnt going to get a Hepatitis shot because it's not required in the US. Do you think i should?

We were on the phone and I swear, I could hear her shaking her head! LOL!

Okay - so I go tomorrow to pick up my dress. I am SO EXCITED!! It will be the first time I've had it on where it actually fits. I am going to try to get some pics with my old camera so FI doesn't see it. If all goes well, I'll be dropping the bag in the mail to Tara. elefant.gif

I plan on packing OOT bag stuff this weekend and dying my hair. FI and I went to the video store last night and I rented "Made of Honor" to get me a little in the mood! haha!

OKAY - I forgot to tell you, one of my BM's told me that she went to someone's house and they had this basket with towels in it and it had all of these starfish on it. She said they were white but had little rhinestones all over them! Of course I fell in love with the idea so now I think I am going to accessorize all of my baskets for my AHR with these lovely starfish that I can glue little rhinestone thingeys on. Doesn't that sound great??
You should definately do a Wig out party they look like so much fun from other girls pics. How was "Made of Honor"? i have to rent it to get me in the mood too. How exciting your picking up your dress!!! and the basket sounds beautiful perfect for the DW.

Little alterations needed means little cost. i go for my last fitting Oct 27th. it doesnt really need anything else done unless i lose a lot-a lot of weight but it's a lace up back so still should be okay.

I'll tell you how the movie is after we watch it this weekend. It is going to be cold and may snow on Sunday - perfect for veging out and watching videos.

That is awesome! Is yours a lace up back or strapless?

OMG Danielle that is awesome on your Bparty! You better take some pics! At least it wasn't a surprise! I'd hate to have had you running around again all primped up again! LOL!

ERICA - I am excited too to see your TTD dress!

Danielle - The hepatitis shot isn't required here either, but it is recommended to get both A & B if travelling. The kids are getting Twinrix which is bot stains and Larry and I are just getting the Hep A since we already have the B one done. I would recommend getting it. It is better to be safe than sorry and it is good forever.

Twinrix (A&B) has 3 shots (first one, 1 month later and 6 months later) and the Havrix (A) has 2 shots (first one & 6 months later)

    • 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.
