February 09 Brides

Recommended Posts

I went in for my first dress fitting last night! I was sooo scared about putting the dress on, but was pleasantly surprised... working out has paid off! I also purchased gifts for my honorary bridesmaids.

 

I still need to: make my OOT bags and write the welcome letter/itinerary and work on my Ipod playlists.

 

I can't believe how close we all are!!!!

I have a couple of big checks off my to do list.

 

First, I sent the paperwork yesterday! Yeah! It was the one thing I was not looking forward to. The thought of standing in line after line at the court house getting all the paperwork ready didn't sound like fun, but it turned out to be not that bad; and I even found a parking spot on the street...in Downtown Seattle...that's a miracle in itself.

 

Next, the muslin version of my dress is ready. I am having a friend who is a designer make a custom dress for me based on a 1930s dress I own. For those who are confused…when you have something custom made (not from an existing pattern) many designers will first make the item in an inexpensive fabric (in this case muslin) to make sure the style and fit are correct before they make the item in the more expensive fabric. I should be able to try it on as soon as we can figure out a time to meet. Iâ€m so excited!!!cheer2.gif

 

Top things I still have to do:

Get my wedding band sized

Get on Joel to pick out his ring

Find pants for Joel for the ceremony

 

I canâ€t believe how fast time is going. Itâ€s almost here!

My stomach flips everytime I think about only having 3 weeks left! We got our pre cruise care packages out over the holidays and it feels so good to be done with them! Are you all doing planning threads?

I just made my final list of things to do and I am getting so excited!!* As of yesterday we have 78 people coming and still have a week to go before I have to stick my mom on the call list to see if we will have any others joining us.* My FI and I are meeting with our pastor this weekend to start our marriage counciling, I am a little nervous about that one!* We have been dating for three years but I am sure we will find out things about eachother that we did not know. And last but not least I need to post all of my DIY projects and my dress and everything else I have done as of now that pertains to my wedding on this site so I can hopefully help some other lost bride to be out there with some ideas.

Left to do:

Centerpieces are done, just need to finish the table #s

Make OOT bags

I cannot believe that my wedding is less than 7 weeks away - holy crap!

 

I still have lots to do but am feeling more in control that I did a month ago! Just have smaller things to do now - and it looks like lots of parties! I need to refine my lists and just keep plugging away!

Hey girls! I was thinking about all of you and that we haven't checked in for a while.

 

Tobi, we leave in 15 days too! We will basically be in the Caribbean at the same time, just different islands. Passing ships in the night...ha!

 

I printed our programs last night and I am happy with them. I found this great paper that is deep red on one side and ivory on the other with red hearts woven in. Love it! I'm getting my hair cut/colored tomorrow and going for a makeup trial at MAC. I've been waiting for these two appointments for a long time!!! I've got my planning thread almost ready to go. So exciting!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
