    I'm jealous that you girls even have your dresses! Mine doesn't get here for at least another month... and by then if it doesn't fit i'm totally screwed!!

    I also think that wedding wear doesn't usually look good unless it's the whole package. ie hair make up, jewelry, etc. So I bet your dress and veil look great, but you're not getting the whole picture just yet!

      I haven't jumped on this thread for awhile because I've been busy doing house projects. I should be saving money to pay for more of wedding but noooo, I had to redo my sunroom. I am halfway done with the sunroom. I will post a thread with pictures when I am done. I love this room.

      SO anywho, back to wedding stuff. I still need to find some sort of bustier sort of thing that will add some boobage and hold in any weight I don't lose. We also need to buy a wedding band for FI as well as order wedding shirts for FI and his twin. I think I will have ivory embroidery for FI's shirt and blue (that matches my twin's dress) for FI's twin. (Still following?)

      I also need to order the maraca pens and tropical notepads for OOT bags, get some decks of cards (might just get regular cards) and make CDs.

      I think I will just give everyone their bags before we go and not have a little get together. Just seems like a lot of work.

      Unfortunately for some of my guests, Apple just added a fuel surcharge of $50pp for those who haven't already paid in full. Of course, it probably went into effect on July 1 and their payment due date is July 8. Had we been forewarned, I would have had everyone pay before the surcharge started. Frustrating!

      Let's see, the only other thing left for Mexico is to have my stepbrother silkscreen my bags, order my shoes (going to get dyed same blue as my sister's dress), and figure out what shoes the guys should wear.

        Thanks guys! I'll have to post pics on Monday to show you. Maybe it's because I'm not used to wearing such a light color all over my body - it just seemed weird.

          Dress fits, but I look pregnant and need a different bra. I felt like my head looked small and the rest of me was big. NO - I'm not posting pics either !! LOL!

          The ivory didn't even look ivory. I am so tanned that the dress almost looks white.

          Another thing.........I am second guessing my veil. I love it and it is beautiful, BUT I thought I looked stupid. It seemed so frivilous. I am putting a flower in my hair too, and when I was at the bridal store, it all looked so nice together, now I feel like it doesn't.

          I don't know. Maybe I need to take some pics and see what you guys think. I think that's what I'll do. I'll take them this weekend and post on Monday.

          You guys should post some pics on Monday too!

          ~ On a side note - how are you feeling Steph? I hope all went well at the doctors!

          Love ya!

          First of all....knock of the bad talking missy!!!!! Like Danielle said I have not even step foot near my dress lately and dont intend to for some time. You definitely need to post some pics. Are you open to ditching the veil? I bought a veil and was all "oh yeah a veil" and now I am like WTF was I thinking so I am getting rid of that, this an option? Will you be this tan then? I mean that may sound dumb but just a question. I am just eager for biggest loser 3 to start. I know Atkins is not the best way to lose weight but lets be honest 4 months is not a lot of time and I have had great success doing Atkins and losing weight fast on that diet.

          and Celina thank you for asking I am in a lot of pain right now and will be going back to bed but had to check in with everyone while my FI is out, he is a mean nurse who wont let me out of bed (and not for all the right reasons, damn it)

          In case I dont get to chat with you all later (although I am sure I will.... Happy Fourth of July)

            YES SARGEANT STEPH!! I PROMISE...NO MORE BAD TALK!!

            I think I want to keep the veil - Even if I wear it for just one minute ~ I want something to pass on to my little girl for her wedding.

            I'll work it out. Someone recommended an appetite supressant on another thread - I am going to look for it this weekend and start it ASAP!

            Steph - you go back to bed rest and and I hope you all have a great weekend!

                Hope your pain goes away soon Steph!

                I'm going shopping at the outlets today. I'm hoping i find some cute bathing suits. I have no idea what i'm going to fit in come November so i'm just guessing sizes right now and styles. This is probably not very smart!!! I can see myself only fitting into one bathing suit and one dress and wearing them everyday on the trip lol

                I can't for BL3 to start too. I did pretty good last season but i have to really kick some butt for bl3. I want to lose 20lbs more before Nov. It's really hard though.

                  I have to start watching what I am eating too. As for taking other supplements and stuff, I am not very good at taking pills unless I am sick. Once I start feeling better, I start forgetting to take the meds. I know...good nurse eh? LOL I remember to give everyone else their meds!! Anyway, that is why I haven;t really considered taking and diet pills or appetite suppressants and such. I have lost about 17lbs back in Jan/Feb, and have totally slacked since then, but haven't gained the weight back, so hopefully I can lose a bit more!!!!! When is BL3 supposed to start? I will totally do that.
