(slight downer is the letter also says I have to pay the other 50% but hey ho!!)

woop woop!

now just shoes, veil and tiara to go! not much then!
SOOOO exciting! I ordered mine to be made in August, I have no idea when it will arrive, they said 8-9 months which freaked me out because I ordered it about 8-9 months before I need it.

we got our wedding rings sorted at the weekend...had a guy come round from a company that makes what you want (much cheaper) and more personal :o)

this is very similar to what mine will look like Ladies Nine Carat White Gold Diamond Set Wedding Ring - Beaverbrooks the Jewellers except unfortunately not as cheap as I'm not having white gold. it goes well with my engagement ring which is a solitare princess cut platinum ring (square diamond)

tip for anyone else with platinum engagement rings, you can get a palladium ring which is not softer or harder than platinum so you can wear the two together and palladium is much cheaper.
Ooo how pretty! It's funny, getting rings was the first thing FI and I did. I too got a platinum wedding band to match my engagement ring, it's PAINFUL how much it cost. I had to pick out the most expensive one too of course and fall in love. It was like my dress, I would have settled if I had stuck to my budget shots.gif both times...

Katie, I love your dress--very beautiful! Also, I think your wedding ring is going to look gorgeous with your engagement ring. Looking at all these pics of wedding dresses makes me want to go wear put my on again! :)

Mine's not appropriate for the beach either and I am getting married in the sand! It's italian silk, ivory, massive poofy skirt, very fancy lol. I was the same as you though. I had this idea in my head of getting a very beachy dress, but they didn't look good on me. I'd post pics, but its being made for me, and is in the very early stages.

Especially at the last shop when the "Randy" of the shop told me "don't do it girl you look like a little pregnant bride" LOL, no more!

 

So I ended up picking out a dress that I myself was suprised I grabbed. Even the chick that was helping me came over and was like "I'm suprised you picked this! He's my favorite designer"

 

So my dress is nothing like most of the dresses on here, mine is what I love and that's all that matters :) It's totally not appropriate for a beach wedding (thank goodness I'm not getting married on sand)

That makes me feel better! At least I'm the only one. Mine is form fitting and silk and I hope I don't sweat to death in it!
