Also, on the amenity sheet they sent me I think dress pressing is listed as $10.
That is just crazy. I've never heard of such a thing! I wouldn't worry about it now, I'd take care of it with the WC onsite. No sense fighting this battle with Tiffany (it shouldn't even be a battle) when you can do it down there.

Had to have an argument with them in the shop as they don't do alterations at weekends or in the evenings and I refused outright to have to book ANOTHER day off work just to have another alteration that they should have got right the first time! (I feel bad enough that I'll be off work for 3 weeks without keep booking days off for everything else!) so I got them to agree to stay late one night and I've got to rush home from work next Wednesday and get there for 7.30pm! fingers crossed, this is the last one!
Yay good for you!!! I have the opposite problem. I just picked up my dress today and it's too tight! She swears she didn't take it in between the last time and this time and that I've gained weight, but I don't think so. It does zip but it's really, really hard to breath and uncomfortable sad.gif I've got 1.5 weeks to make it fit??

Well one of my friends actually just found out that she isn't a US citizen! So her and her BF are out... one of my bridesmaids just got horrible tax news that they owe thousands so her and her husband are out (currently trying to figure out a work around) another couple just waited too long to book. Lame.
Can you start a thread and work on it before you actually post it live? I've been gathering pictures and information for my planning thread but am not done yet. But it'd be nice to at least upload some of the info and get the ball rolling.

Okay, how did one of your friends not know she wasn't a citizen? That is a strange thing to not know! Was her paperwork being processed and she thought it'd gone through or something? There's got to be a story here! That really sucks about your friends not being able to come sad.gif

Oh no! Too tight, well you definitely want to be able to breathe all night and comfortably dance. You could easily diet and cut out most carbs and gassy foods and shrink a size in a week if you wanted to.

I started my planning thread in a Word doc. and just pasted the image codes in there so it will be a breeze putting it up when I'm ready.

HAHA, well she thought her mom had gotten her citizenship when they moved here because she was a baby and when trying to get her passport recently, discovered she is in fact not.

I am dealing with the "can we stay at a cheaper resort?" issue right now. yes, you can if you want to pay $300 per day! STRESS CENTRAL!

If you decide to wait 3 months and do your Vegas wedding around August 12th or something, we can do ours together!

HAHA, don't let it get to you too much. In the end you realize that there's really not much you can do about it.

I had 64 people RSVP and half of them fall off or cancel. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else because it's really a low, low feeling.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
