I have my shower this weekend and it should be fun they are doing a mexican theme. Did I tell you guys they threw me a surprise shower last week at work?? It was really cool they decorated the office all mexican fiesta and especially my cubicle and people were wearing sombreros..ha It was fun, they all pitched in and made a mexican style lunch. Then after work we all went out for margaritas at our favorite mexican restaurant (which I thought that was all we were doing...they tricked me!) And I got a card from work with $100 towards our freezer they knew we wanted to buy...so was really nice!!

Thanks for the dress support! Here is the pic and here is my dilema...........
I spoke to the seamstress last night and I am going to her house tonight to have her fix the dress.
Excuse my hair - I just took it down from a ponytail. Anyhow, I don't want to lose the scalloped edge on the lace. I tried it on again last night with the right bra and realized the lace has the same scalloped pattern right below the current pattern. I want her to take in the satin underneath to expose more and she will have to cut the lace down a scallop (I hope that makes sense).
Because it is so covered up, it doesn't look flattering at all. She is going to have to do something with the width of the strap area. It is just too much coverage. BTW - my dress is actually ivory.
SO - no need for a new dress, and I feel much better. I think I totally had a Bridezilla moment! Whewwww.....crisis averted!

Yeah - some of that fabric has to go! I need va-va-voom coming down that aisle! Not Muffy the Matron Bride! Ha ha!
I wanted to wear a regular bra for support, but now that you mention it...hmmm. The zipper is in the back and she'd have to do something with the zipper and she could add some satin ties or whatever to fix the neck. I could definitely ask her. It would add more va-va if it was a halter.
She showed me a halter dress she did the last time I was there and it turned out really cute, so I know she can do it.
We will definitely discuss that option! Thanks for pointing it out!

Hope all is well with you!
I went last night and took my dress. She is taking in 1 inch on each side of the bodice of the dress and is cutting off one line of the scalloped lace on each side as well. I had the dress on and she pinned it up pretty good and when I left it looked a lot like the original dress.
We discussed a halter neck, but she would have to reconfigure the entire back of the dress and the zipper, so I decided against it.
I finally got my rhinestone E's in so I can finish my blumeboxes. I can't wait to show you guys! We have to post our planning threads next week!
I have my makeup trial Saturday afternoon. I am excited for that! I am also going to finally get my hair cut tonight! I am finishing up all my loose ends here at work. I work 4 days next week and will be on vacation till November 18th! We also have our legal day next Friday. Me and my BM's are going to go out for brunch next Sunday and I am giving them their "Swag Bags". I also picked them up some passport covers so I'll toss those in as well.
The guys at work are teasing me. They are too cute. They are calling me a "Short-Timer" and asking if I had cold feet.
