    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..

              I just looked up the Kestrel - it looks beautiful!!

              I'm glad you found one that you liked even more! Hopefully I fall in love with something!

                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.
