    OMG 50 days left for me! I can't believe it. I got a few more things done. Schedule a makeup trial at MAC, ordered gifts for our godparents, had my first fitting, and paid for the rooms and more of the photographer. How is everyone else doing? I'm still waiting on like 50 RSVPS but they have till 11/1.

      NJ bride- we're getting married the same day! Yay- I saw that 50 days on my calendar this morning too- YAHOO!! Congrats on ticking off the things on your list! I can't believe you had a 11/1 RSVP date. I made mine 10/1 although of course I'm still waiting on a few people who are on the fence!!!

        Kevsgirl -- did you go try on the other dress again tonight??!!

        Did you love it? Or did it look awful?:-) TOTALLY kidding...
        It's just when I was decing on whether to buy dress #2, when I went to try it on again, I kept hoping it would awful so it wouldn't be a hard decision:-)

        Let us know what you decide! Enquiring minds want to know...(or at least minds with no lives of their own...lol:-))

        BTW -- dance lessons? Mucho impressed!

          YES!!! I went last night to the first salon where I bought my first (hang head in shame) gown. I spoke with the owner. Honestly, they didn't treat me well there, which is funny because I almost bought 2 gowns from them. Whatever.
          I didn't find anything I liked.
          She said that she would take my gown back and sell it on consignment. They'd decide on a price and discuss with me. This after she said it would be very great for them to have it in the store as it's a popular style and a good size. So I'd be helping them? So I hope i have some more leverage than a crappy price. We'll see how that goes.

          My sister drove me and my FMIL came too and met us there. Then she suggested we go to another store in the spur of the moment, so we drove otu there with about an hour and half left to closing. Tried on half the store and finally put on this gorgeous dress... it was one that I picked on a whim that FMIL looked at me and said "are you serious?" boy did she ever eat her words when she saw me in it!

          So... it's on hold right now at the store. It is a size too big, but totally possible to alter to suit me. Woohoo! It is super sexy, slimming, hugging, beautiful bottom and very similar to the dress I posted above (at the other store). I drove myself nuts for a few hours thinking about going back tothe other store, but honestly this one was so much prettier, there's no comparison.
          The straps are beautiful lace, the back is dramatic and sexy, the bust area is hot too! It will hug my curves, give me an hourglass figure, and it has the most fun bottom too!

          I'm SUPER EXCITED!!!
          I was just waiting to hear if they called the warehouse to see if there was a 'ivory/gold' one in 12 or even diamond white, as this one is white. But I just took matters into my own hands and called. THey have no stock, so it's a white 14 at the store. I do not care. I'm so happy with it. It makes me feel like a princess.
          WE put on a very sheer one layer white veil with it and it was sooooooooo pretty!

          Here it is! I'll pick it up tonight or tomorrow and try to get pics too!

            So here it is!!! I just went and bought it. It's white, which isn't as great as ivory, but I still LOVE It TO DEATH!!! It's a size too big, so it's not as form fitted as it will be. Here I'm pinching in the sides...:

            And just for the BDW girls....

            I feel so sexy in this dress. And it's so romantic too. It's the perfect combination.I didn't get the veil, but am planning on purchasing something very similar:

              OMG Kevsgirl -- I LOVE IT!!!
              Wow -- that dress is GORGEOUS!
              And it looks amazing on you! I'm SO happy for you!
              You sound MUCH happier...how a bride SHOULD sound:-)

              At least the store you bought the first one from offered to do SOMETHING...it's inspiring me to maybe say something to the store I bought my first one at:-) Eeeeeek...I'm SUCH a wimp when it comes to stuff like that...it's stupid, I know...I feel like I"m going to hurt their feelings or something...like they care, as my FI keeps telling me:-)

              Yaaaaaay! for you!

                THANK YOU!!! I'm so much happier and relieved and just overall giddy!
                You're totally right: it's how I should sound. Yippee for the 2nd dress!
                I need to do a dance now!

                Yes, dances. You asked what our dance was (or someone else did).
                We're going to dance to Ingrid Michaelson's Take Me as I Am (I think that's what it's called). It's quirky and sweet. FI loves it and I do too (though I think I'd be more inclined to dance to one of the oldies that we were lso thinking of).
                Other front-runners were/are:
                Bubl©: For Once in my Life
                Beyond the Sea
                Bubl©: Fever
                Michelle Featherstone: Man and Wife

                What are all of you December brides dancing to?
                And what on earth are you walking down the isle to? I have no idea for that!!!

                  Kevsgrl - I LOVE LOVE your new dress! you are glowing in it! Congrats!! That is EXACTLY how you should feel! Now Semistar if that doesnt motivate you to take your first dress back to get SOMETHING!!! GO! The worst they can do is say no! And there's al ot of upside!

                  KevsGrl- my fiance and I are still UNDECIDED on music. UGH! Although I've always LOVED pachabel in canon D so I will probably walk down the aisle to that. Thats about all I know at this point!

                  What all are the rest of the Dec brides doing?

                    I know, I KNOW! :-)
                    They actually called and left a message yesterday saying the dress is in...I think I'll go there (it's about a 2 1/2 hr drive) on Tuesday or Wednesday...and I'll ask whether they can do consignment or SOMETHING...you're right, the worst they can do is say no:-)

                    My FI and are actually going the untraditional route on our first dance...
                    We're dancing to that Saturday Night Fever song by the Bee Gees...for the life of me I can't think of the name of the song right now! We've been praticing...but we've got a LOT more practicing to do! Plus the dance floor we're getting lights up, so we think it'll br pretty funny:-)
                    There's no way we could pull off anything serious or sentimental...we're both too goofy for that:-)

                    As for walking down the aisle...haven't decided.
                    I did hear a BEAUTIFUL verison of Ave Maria on a website a litte while ago that I liked...even though we're not having a religious ceremony, I thought the song was beautiful. And we're having live musicians for the ceremony and cocktail hour, so I'm sure they could play it...I know it'll make my mom tear up:-)

                    And we have NO IDEA what we're walking out to!
                    Guess we should get on that!
