I just joined the BDW biggest loser too! Need motivation, I thought seeing the ticker at 6 months would motivate me, but not yet.

 

Our colors are apple and fuchsia. Just decided on those about a month ago. Do you know what you want?

Oh, that sounds pretty!!

I've been struggling with color because I really love purple. But not so much the tropical shades of purple....I love plums and aubergines...and I was struggling with such a deep, fall color at a tropical wedding. We're getting married in a garden overlooking the ocean, so it will be very colorful with the green grass and the turqouise water. I'd like something that would contrast the green and the blue. So...I'm thinking of still going with a deep purple but having really bright colored bouquets with some orange in them. I think orange or a berry color would be really pretty against the blue and green but most of my girls wouldn't want to wear something that bright. So, I'm thinking of a more muted color with bright accents...

Have you picked your bridesmaids dresses yet?

Hi Opice34.. I was dead set on getting a Winnie Couture gown.. I even posted a thread about it awhile back :)

 

All their dresses look so gorgeous on the website.. I originally wanted the Kestrel design from the 2006 destination wedding collection.. heh

 

We didn't have any bridal shops where I am that sold Winnie Couture, so I made a weekend out of going to the states and going to a bridal salon that was having a trunk show of all the Winnie Couture dresses in the 2008 collection!

 

Long story short, I didn't end up getting one but I really love all the designs.. they are fabulous! I hope you find one that looks fantastic on you :) I'm pretty sure I tried on the dress that you are thinking of..

Hi Ladies,

Since we are getting married in November 08, when are you planing to send the invites out? or you already did?

I'm actually more behind than all of you... so far we've only booked our trip and sent STDs....

I'm hoping to get my invites mailed out in the beginning or at least by the middle of June, and we requested the reply by August 15.

I honestly wanted to wear my trusty SPANX to go dress shopping, but I'm sure that'd be a little weird!!

Do you have your colors picked out?
Ummm...I wore my Spanx..wanted to be able to fit my hips thru those size 8dresses they think everyone can fit in! My sister was basically tucking my fat in the dresses while we were trying on. I just laughed with it. We had a fun time. Good Luck

opice my colors well I think my colors are going to be turquoise and lime green like my siggy. I love blues and i wanted bright colors. But i think the purple or orange you were talking about would look great for a DW, you don't have to go a tropical color route.

 

I'm going to try to make my invites and get them out by end of May. I'm not going to send RSVP cards, all of the guest that are most likely going already booked. Maybe i'll do a RSVP on our wedding website.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
