            thanks! my dress was definitely NOT what i thought i was going for ... i was looking for something MUCH more casual, but that one made my mom cry! and i told my girls they could get short dresses just off the rack somewhere and save money, but they chose to go to david's and get long dresses. the whole formality level of my wedding just took a leap!

                Whew, Ok I think I am almost done with the major tasks!

                I ordered my dress last week, it is the total opposite of what I thought i wanted, but I just love it and on top of that I found a chapel length veil that I absolutely love...a little much for the beach but I don't care!
                The bridesmaid dresses are picked out and will be ordered next week. Dinner, flowers and my bookings are taken care of so I just have flights, oot bags and invitations left to do!

                Oh and I need to lose about 40 lbs so I had better get moving on that too!
                Overall things are FINALLY starting to move smoothly!

                ETA: whoops, maybe I need to get my marriage certificate too...for some reason that one keeps slipping my mind!

                    Woo hoo, got some updates to my list!! Finally found BM Dresses! I love them :) See pic below! What do you girls think? Also I need some advice on what color to order my flower ribbons in. I think I want my ribbon to be white, the corsages for the mom's in white because it will go with what they wear, for the BM, GM & Groom, I think I would like the ribbon to be teal so they pop ot from what they are wearing but the flowers are white and fuschia, would that look ok? Here's a picture of the flowers (al white orchids instead of white & green) - help please :)

                      Good job on your planning! Question, does teal go with anything else in your color scheme? Does it match the BM and Groom? I think it might be a little odd if it doesn't fit the overall color scheme... If you want a color to pop, I think I would do with green. It will match the stems and look natural but still stand out against a white shirt or khaki suit (not sure what the guys are wearing). That's just my two pesos!
