I am super excited!  I mailed out all our invitations Monday, and I booked Ivan Luckie to do be our photographer.  It took me forever to choose, but in the end, everything came together for us with Ivan, and everyone on this forum raves about him and his wife.  Now I just need to start dress shopping...I have totally been putting it off!  ???  

And here I thought I would be super excited about this part, I think its because I want to lose more weight!  cool.gif

I have lost 17 pounds since January but have a lot to go (and being in New Orleans for the last week has NOT helped)..but I have been at the hotel gym 4 times this week, and will go again when I get off this computer!!  :)

Did anyone order their dress a few sizes too small in hopes of losing weight?

Hey girls, I am actually off work on a Saturday night so I am spending the night getting some last minute wedding stuff done.  Thought I'd share our silly table numbers I've been working on.  We are a very laid back couple and our wedding is definitely focused on "fun" and informal.  :)  tablenumbersix.jpgtablenumbercuatro.jpg

Hey Kerry,

 

Good luck!!!  Dress shopping is the best!  Personally, I went to about 6 stores and tried on approximately 24 dresses.  Be sure you focus on what you want and how you envision yourself on your big day.  For me, money was a big deal because we were paying for the entire wedding ourselves.  So, the cheaper the better.  I found a dress that I liked and was considering buying but my mom had to see it  So, before driving to the shop for that dress, we went to a few others, where we ultimately found "my" dress.  Looking back at the pics, I kinda felt like I let my mom guide me a bit too much but as it turned out, that was only b/c the dress I received was a bit bigger and fit me differently.  After alterations, it's beautiful, and will look great on my wedding day.  It has all the features I wanted. 

 

So, long story for that but be sure you have a few features that you want.  Do you want fitted, lightweight, beading, lace??  Oh, and DON'T SETTLE!!  :o)

 

Let us know how it goes!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
