    Ok...so it seems that FI and I have worked through our issues, for the time being at least :) There's a little more that went on after my thread about it, but we were honest with each other and we seem to have moved on. :)

    With 6 months left I feel like it's "crunch" time :) We've alredy been engaged a year and a half LOL

    This past weekend I went and ordered our invitations (we decided on them in Feb) and confirmed the ring FI wants. He also brought up the issue of what the guys are going to wear and I think we figured it out :) I also booked our airfair for the wedding.

    Yesterday was my birthday :) We had planned to go to the beach, but it was crummy here in the morning. He asked what I wanted to do so I asked him if he'd really do ANYTHING I wanted LOL he said yes...so we went into Manhattan and went back to the jewler where he got my e-ring...well, they weren't in so we wandered around and spoke to a couple of different jewlers. We found one that we really liked and he does custome work and had some suggestions about a wedding band to fit my e-ring. And we liked his prices :) I am goign to go back in a week or two and get the ball rolling on that one.

    Afterwards we wandered around China Town and Little Italy, had coffee and Gellato and then back to China Town. I can't tell you how many of those shops we went into, but I finally found the perfect Pashima's for my BM's. Their dresses are aqua and light ivory...so the pashima's are solid ivory but have a circular design on them.

    I just emailed a company about AB Swarovski starfish pendents that I am going to use to make the BM's necklaces and earings and I ordered my tote bags from www.cheaptotes.com...FYI - the natural canvas is on sale for $.99 and cupon code "cheaptotes" saves you 10% I think ($.01 per bag).

    Don't worry ladies, I'm taking pictures of everything and posting them here and there (I already posted my invitations). I plan to do a full and complete and LONG planning thread!!!!!

            I can't totally see why you feel accomplished. I think it's great that you two are addressing your issues pre-wedding and it is also so nice to cross things off of your huge wedding to-do list. Way to go, girl!

              Hey Dez!

              I bought a swarovski starfish pendant off of ebay before my wedding last year, you might want to check there to compare prices too, I'm not sure how much they are from the company you contacted.

              Good luck!

                  I actually did look on ebay but I get confused/overwhelmed there sometimes :)

                  I got them for $9.16 each. I bought them in "bulk" meaning I needed more than 6. But they had them in a group of 6 for 54.95 and individually for $10.50...I emailed asking if I got 8, would I have to pay the $10.50 for the 2 extra...she said she'd adjust it for me :)

                  I'm BIG on customer serview and I literally emailed them at around 6:30 this morning and was emailed back at 8:30 (probably as soon as she got in).

                  Once I get them in, I'll write a review of them, so far, this company is getting an A+ from me :)

                  My BM gifts are almost done!! Whoo hooO!!!

                    Wow Dez, you are on the ball! I'd love to see the pendants and pashminas.

                    I was thinking of buying our moms some pashminas.

                    Good for you!
