I was talking to my Mom about the fans, and I was online looking to order them, but weddingbliss.com doesn't ship to Canada and the turquoise fans are sold out until Sept. I think we will just go with the natural colour and incorporate the turquoise into them.

 

Upside - we won't have to worry about people getting coloured hands! LMAO

i think the natural color fans with turqoise in them would look really great anyway.

 

Oh and they changed the colored fans so the handles were natural not colored to keep from staining hands. but it kinda looks stupid well it's sloppy looking, that's why i'm definately putting ribbon on it.

that is a scary thought. I'm still hung up on only having 4 mos left.

 

Celina, i decided to just go ahead and order to shirts from wedding tropics. i ordered a 2xl and xl. And than once we get them and we see how the sizes run, i'll order the other two shirts. So i just didn't put in the measurements. i wanted to get all the guys to meet so i could measure them but fi said just order two. So i did, we'll see how they turn out. The shipping was $25 for two shirts, i did a double take when i saw the cost. And that's just standard shipping.

 

I have to get some clothes for the trip this weekend. And bathing suits, this won't be fun.

I think he would stand out fine from the guys since the embroidery would be different.

And i do like how you are having the Moh and BestMan match and than the bms and gms match. I think that will look really nice.
Yes - that sounds great! I just want us to kind of match. Sometimes I could kick myself for getting an ivory dress. I just didn't feel right wearing white with two kids. I don't know...it weemed weird to me. If you look at the gallery at Weddingtropics, you'll see what I mean regarding the mitch match pants and shirts blending together.

I'm going to use white paper to pring the programs. I'm not sure if i'm going to put a piece of paper under the white to give it a little something. I was thinking about green like lime green paper under. Im going to wrap ribbon around the whole handle of the fan. I can't decide what color ribbon white or lime green? do you think white will get too dirty or should i not even worry about that? I wanted to put a starfish or seashell right at the top of the handle too.

anyone have any opinions of what they think will look good?
OOOOhhh yeah! I like that idea! Put the lime paper behind the white program and it will look SO cute! I say go with the lime green ribbon on the handles too. These will be adorable!

My Mom is making the girls dresses and we had teal material for them, but when my dress came in, it was turquoise, not teal. Now we are going to get some new material and then start working on them.
Yes - I am glad you guys made me see it. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with too many choices! That totally sucks about your dress and the FG's dresses. Your mom is a blessing!

$25 for two shirts - YIKES! Yeah, I was thinking if we should just go by their sizing and see how it goes instead of measuring each and every person. FI has picked up some weight and I know that is why he is dragging his feet on buying clothes. What he is REALLY going to do is wait until the last minute and there won't be ANY linen pants to be found and then he will see my true Bridezilla come out! girl_werewolf.gif Some places love to take advantage when it comes to shipping!

Swimsuit shopping SUCKS! I need to buy another one, but haven't found one I like. I bought one last year and lord knows why I bought it, because I hate it!

My dress is ivory too. My FI is wearing a tan suit with white shirt, and the best man and ring bearers are wearing tan/khaki pants and white shirts. I figured that would be the best option to go with ivory. My BMs are wearing pink and green dresses with ivory flip flops.

    • 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.
