The wierd part is that they always claim the further out you book, the better off you are, but I dont know if that's necessarily true. Granted, you can't depend on late deals, but still....I don't think 90 days out or so is really "late". The only thing that would keep me from waiting that long is if we were booking a package deal and needed to confirm room types in advance. Dunno..it's all so much to try to be mindful of.

Birmingham- I was sooooo determined to have a Maggie. I love her dresses and they are so flattering on all body types (I'm one that wants that extra suckage for the waistline:)). The one I ended up getting isn't quite a Maggie, but the designer was head designer for Maggie Sottero for ten years...so I count it as one. Definitely looks very similar to her style and has the corset back.

Oh, and there are soooo many girls here on the forum who wore all kinds of dresses with their grooms not in suits. My guys are wearing linen pants and long sleeved shirts too! And my dress isn't poofy but it's definitely wedding'ish. Wear whatever you want! The only thing I'm really worried about is the heat..I loathe being hot, I swear I do. (yea, why is this chick going to Mexico? lol) and I definitely "glow" in the heat...in layman's terms, thats SWEAT. So I'm checking out the boards here for all kinds of tips and tricks on how to deal. I don't *think* the dress will be stifling, but it's hard to tell.

Maggie has lots of simple dresses and you should check out the Sophia Tolli site!Wedding dresses and designer bridal gowns by Sophia Tolli I think the best thing to do is always find the style you like and then start bargain hunting. I just got to the point where I knew I couldn't/wouldn't pay full price for a gown if I could help it..they are so freakin expensive! And I'm a complete amateur about what's expensive and what's not, so I honestly didn't care about the label. I just liked Maggie's because of the fit. But yea, Ebay, bestbridalprices.com, thebridalshop.com...they all have great deals.

Hair...ugh. I don't know. On the one hand, I want it up with lots of dangly, whispy tendrils hanging down. That would be cooler for sure. On the other hand, I want it wild and wavy/curly...that could be hot AND hot-sexy. lol Are you an AA bride too? We had a whole thread going for a while last year about Afr. Amer brides and hair..it got in depth. lol
I am going to check out that website. Yes I am African American. I am going to keep looking. I said I will give myself until June.

May 22, 2010 right here! We just have to figure out where in Punta Cana we definately want to have it. Is anyone in 2010 going to the Palladium in Punta Cana? I find lotsa Palladium Jamaica or Rivera Maya but not too many Punta Cana's out there. We really can't make up our minds... hopefully soon-ish!

Adias.Angel - I love your boarding passes that you created but I was wondering what fonts you used. Also, your budget spreadsheets are great, good job on everything!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
