    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.
    I'm so glad things worked out with the dress! I can't wait to see the blumeboxes. What did you get your BMs?

              I know! Every time I look at my Blumeboxes I think....gotta show Michelle!

              As far as my BM's and MOH's...I did this for them:

              Purchased their dresses and flip flops
              Made their hair flowers

              Their "Swag Bags" will include:
              "Bridesmaid" or "Maid of Honor" tank
              Manicure set
              lip gloss
              lotion
              body puff
              earrings
              luggage tags
              passport cover

              I got my MOH will get an embroidered hankie that I will give to her privately on the morning of the wedding.

              I also got them each of them and my "almost" SIL's starfish necklaces that I will give to them at the Rehearsal Dinner.

                  Those are great gifts! I wanted to get passport covers for my girls, but I wasn't finding any that I really liked. I have one with a ticket holder that Mike got me for Christmas a few years ago from Flight, but they don't make the one I have anymore.

                  The seating chart was a total pain. I had like 4 versions! I attached mine in case anyone wants to use the template.

                    good seating chart michelle. fi insisted on us having round tables which made it even more of a PITA to do the seating chart. i wanted long tables so i could throw everyone on the same table or two tables. I dont even know why fi wanted round tables, seriously some of his requests are sooo weird, what kind of guy cares about tables?

                      I started with one long table for family and split the rest into two round tables, but Mike suggested the two long ones and I liked that better. I never tried all round, but that does make it more difficult.
