I don't know girls, I'm having a really hard time with this legal thing. I don't want it to seem at all like a wedding to take away from our real day in Mexico. My mom is making it harder on me b/c she wants to make it this big thing and have flowers/decorations etc....

At first I was going to hire a minister to come to the house on a Saturday, then my dad called my godfather b/c his brother is a judge and he agreed to it. The problem is I don't think he really wants to do it b/c of his schedule, but felt guilted into it. He hasn't called me back in two days to set up the date/time.

 

I don't know what are you opinions, am I crazy for not wanting to make it a bigger thing?

 

I have an ivory short dress I got at david's bridal that I am going to wear for my welcome dinner so if I do a bigger thing I will wear that or if we just do a private thing probably just jeans.

I knew i shouldnt have gone dress shopping..... girls i have fallen in love.gif with another dress...... Ok so in the pictures of it, it dosent actually look that special, but i tried it on today and i DIDNT wana take it off, I just loved it..... In fact the more im talking about it the more i think im going to get it.... It was gorgeous, fitted PERFECT too & & & & & i always said i didnt want a veil but now i do.... i was looking for an aqua flower for my hair now i just want a hair comb with some bling flowers... i tried on the whole "shbang" I really really wanted my mum or sis there. I went on my own today as i couldnt get anyone to go with me ( My family live miles and miles away)

But i must say, I Looked Gorgeous :-) Infact reading back on this I dont think i have a dilema after all............ I nearly cried, didnt cry, but nearly i had a tear in my eye for sure....

I just wish the picture of it looked like it did when it was on!!!!

You will probably notice it is VERY VERY simliar to the one i originally wanted so i defo know the style is right :-)

 

I am so so glad i held off buying the Maggie dress..........

Personally I dont think your crazy for not wanting a bigger thing...... MEXICO is what its all about :-) That will (and should be) the bigger thing.

Well thats my opinion anyway :-) x

Dana-- I completely agree with you about the legal thing. I was having a hard time with it too. I am not making a big deal of our legal day; I am thinking of it as just the paperwork to make the wedding in Mexico complete. We plan to wear jeans. The only thing we are doing is one of my bridesmaid can't make it to mexico due to money (her wedding is the week before ours at home) and her husband will have class, so i thought I would make it special and ask her to be our witness. I thought that was a good idea because she will feel special for getting to be our witness. And then our parents won't be apart of the paperwork, so the only ceremony they will attend is our REAL one in Mexico.

Nicyx- I do agree with Jen, I really do like the top of the Benjamin dress better. What a hard decision though since you already bought the other dress. Do you think you'll be able to sell it and get your money back?

 

Jen-I'm glad you feel the same way. I really didn't want anyone except my witnesses to be there either. I want to sign some papers and that's it. I'm the first child to get married so of course this is hard for my mom. She always pictured me getting married in the catholic church with the traditional reception so it has been hard for her.

 

I went for my second dress fitting. It's still not perfect and a few more changes, but sooooo much better then the last time. Here is a picture.
