Crista - haha, it's ok, it's there for display :)


Ladies, I'm thinking of starting a game to get wedding items done in an easy and fun way. I know, seemingly impossible right but I know Katie and myself have been working out every day successfully and are motivated by talking to you all so I was thinking we could do the same with wedding to do's.


We could either do this weekly or monthly and we could pick one item to get done or top 3 to get done and check in here once done and post our next item or 3 we're working on.


When I work on too many projects I get zero done but if I have only a few and I need to check in with you ladies, I think that may get me more focused. Also, that way we can share what we're doing, which can help each other think of things to do they maybe missed etc.


Let me know your thoughts, I'm open to all suggestions but this may make things simple!


Happy Thursday aka almost Friday! muscle.gif

Amy, that sounds like a great idea. Would we submit different things to get done then? I think 2 weeks would be a good time to check back! Even if the task takes longer, like booking excursion, you could say : organize ideas and call companies one week then oragnzie transport another week, etc.


I just decided on my table seating card displays. I got it off of Martha Stewart Weddings. I am usually not a Martha fan, but her wedding stuff is awesome.


I was going to do Mexican tiles, but then I thought of the weight of bringing them with me and being fragile I changed ---->


Parasol Seating Cards



Aren't they adorable!! And only need a tray, foam, and the umbrellas. :)

Happy Thursday ladies.


Meghan welcome back. We missed you.




I like the game and it I know it would help me to stay focused on getting things done. I am so bad a getting side tracked and since Feb. 13th is 93 days away; I don't have time to get side tracked.



Oh girls I got my shoes ordered last night and finally got my veil delivered to my parents house ( where I am keeping everything). I tired my veil on and my Dad looked at me and said, " I will probably cry when i walk to down the aisle". It was so sweet.

Amyb - SUPER cute!! I love it and very easy to transport. Mexican tiles too are such a great idea but very heavy and breakable unless you bought them down in Mexico.


Andrea - what kinda shoes did you get? I'm such a shoe fantatic it's ridiculous. The designer of my dress bought me any shoes I wanted in the bridal store and I'm still looking for more shoes even though he's making the dress length to them, I need to stop.

That is SO cute what your dad said! :)


Ok ladies, good idea, let's say a maximum of 3 items over two weeks just to keep the stress level down and if you get more done, bonus! Check in with us here when you've completed your items and what they are with pictures too if you like. I can make a update of who is getting what do so we don't forget and that way you'll see your progress as well!


I will do a new list every other Friday, so we'll start tomorrow, here's what my 3 things are to do/get done:


#1 -Finish wording on invites and get info over to Ana

#2 -Pay deposit to DJ

#3 - Go to Banana Republic on Sunday to look for groom attire

#4 - Go to fabric district and pick up supplies for facsinators and jewelry (already planned)

that's lovely about what your dad said :o) and how exciting about your shoes!! i ordered a pair on Saturday so just waiting for them to arrive...I don't know if they are 'the ones' but I'll let you know when they get here!!


Amy F....


FAB FAB FAB idea! us talking about our running and workouts has really helped me so doing the same with to-do lists will probably be a good thing for me too. and 2 weeks is probably better so people can maintain focus. (god I feel like I'm writing a proposal at work now!! lol) if people are feeling lazy and don't want to write them out, we could use our siggys...then when we post people can send comments checking where we're up to!! (i know that's going to sounds strange to some people, but having people telling me what to do - even if they're telling me something I've told them to tell me lol - really helps!)


Amy (bermuda)....


love the place cards! what a great idea!! do you know where you're going to get all the bits from?

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
