    Ok, girls I'm waking up from the dead.things have been crazy at work with our year end. I went for my 2nd hair trial last weekend and I loved the hairdo. I wish I could post here but I can't access photobucket from work..will do later. Probably tomorrow because we are going to economic club meeting tonight to see Mike Huckabee speak and won't get home until late.
    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!!

      BTW Celina, so sorry to hear about your dress issues...I bet that is very stressful. I'm sure your seamstress will be able to fix everything up for you. I just took my dress in for alterations on friday and they told me Nov 17th would be done. Well, we leave on the 20th to stay the night by the airport before our flight...so YIKES...nothing like cutting it close :)

        Oh Amy - that is so awesome about your shower! You will love your freezer too! We couldnt' live without ours. That is so cool about your co-workers.

        Thanks for the dress support! Here is the pic and here is my dilema...........

        Click the image to open in full size.

        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!

          Celina, I agree it looks like there is too much fabric which is I think is giving you what you called the matronly appearance. You are a hot mama, show that off girl!! Could it be turned into a halter?

            Oh Steph - you are too sweet - always my cheerleader!

            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!

              I think if the seamstress can take away some of the fabric to show more of the lace ede so you can see through the dress a bit more around your chest that would be more of what you are looking for, and she could probably take in the side of the straps that don't have the scalloped edge. I wonder if changing to a halter would make the lace edge lay funny, unless she cut off some at the top where the straps would tie around your neck? I am no seamstress, but seeing what my alterations lady has done with my dress and making my sister's flower girl dress I would think the changes on your dress should be pretty easy. It looks like a very pretty dress though!

                So glad she can fix your dress Celina. I understand what you meant when you said you felt it was "choking you" definately too much fabric covering ya up. I cant wait to see how she fixes it.

                    Yes I can't wait to see what she can do with your dress Celina.

                      Good Morning Brides to Be!

                      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.
