I'm torn between styles and think I need another round. It was an enlightening (and a little overwhelming) experience, wow, there are so many different dresses out there!!!!
Both the dresses are beautiful! Take your time, go back and decided which one makes you feel beautiful. I love the lace (I had a lace dress myself- good thing: it travels really well! I just hung it up in the closet and it was perfect) Love the second dress for the very dreamy skirt! Good luck with your choice

It's a simple halter on top with a flowy-ish sort of skirt...very flattering...and then I figure super sparkly dangling earrings. I'll probably go back and order sometime next month.
Love the idea of big sparkly earrings! I had a fairly large turquoise set that matched my shoes

Are there any of the other brides out there that have done a boudoir shoot? What did you FI think of the photos?
Can you email me these too? My email is
Oooh...I forgot about the international stamp thing. I'm using post cards in lieu of a guest book. I'm going to make a variety of post cards and put them in everyone's bags and ask them to write us a note when they get home. So in the end we will (or hopefully we will) have a mixture of photos with everyone's notes on them by the time we get home from our honeymoon!
I'm hoping we get a better outcome with these than with the RSVPs (hoping everyone is still on a high from the vacation or something!).
I forgot I need to get ahold of canadian stamps for all of our canadian guests! Anyone in the states know how to get canadian stamps? And how many would it take to mail a postcard from Canada to US?
PMing you now to see if I can help!
