That's great SeeFlowers! Can't wait to hear how they all turn out.

 

Well, I leave for Mexico one month from today!! We went out shopping for my two 'soon-to-be' step sons last night - we got them each a bunch of new clothes and bathing suits. They were so excited that they wanted to pack their suitcases last night! Ha. I figured one less thing for me to worry about later, so we did it!

 

Countdown is on...guess it's time to get back to healthy eating...we've been so bad lately eating out.

 

How is everyone else doing?

One month?! Wow... I'm so excited for you. I'm freaking out because I can actually say I'm getting married next month! I wish my soon to be 5yr old step daughter could come to Mexico...but an evil witch is keeping her in the states. LOL! However, her older sister is allowed to come and I'm happy abouth that...and she's gonna be my MOH.

 

I'm super happy because this morning I stepped on the scale and I've lost 10lbs! Just 5 more before the wedding and I'll be VERY happy. I think its helping that the FI has been working out of state for the past month. I miss him so much, but my waist-line isn't. He likes to eat!

We had a little bit of a battle with a certain witch of our own, but the boys really wanted to come and she couldn't say no to them! She would have had to listen to them complain for years to come...so they are flying down with my fiance's parents and staying in their room!

 

We have been eating out almost every night because we just haven't had time to cook. I feel like even when I try to be good and order a salad that it's just helpless because of all the extra added calories most restaurants add to their salads. I guess I just need to take some time and really start planning my meals for the next few weeks...I'm scared to get on the scale right now.

I bought 3 different dresses online last night to try on for my legal day.(stores are finally coming out with a larger selection of white dresses for the spring)  Then next week, I'm going for my dress fitting. 

 

I wonder who's going to continue this thread after we are all done ...hhmmm confused.gif

You'd be surprised. When I first joined there was an entirely different group of gals on here daily! Some still check in here and there, but it's amazing to see how new people join and it just continues...pretty neat.

 

I can't wait to hear how your legal dresses are. I am getting really frustrated because I want some new bathing suits but every one I have ordered online doesn't fit right! None of the stores up here in the north east have spring stuff out yet...so annoying!

Soooo, the dress fitting went ok. I have to loose about 5 more pounds before I'll be able to breathe normally! LOL,  I received my Vista stuff and have no complaints...I'll take pics of everything soon.

 

My brother and his wife were maried last August and they had a picture guestbook. The polaroid camera had film that you peel the back and it stuck to the guest book...then you write a note to the bride and groom on the pic or under the pic on the book. They said I could use it if I wanted and I think I will!  I'm gonna order a photobook on Vista and just put our pic on the front cover and have guests take pics to fill the rest of the book!

 

Something like this....

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
