Calling all November 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

Yes, SgtPepperette -- get your hair and makeup done for your photo shoot -- make up will make a difference, and you should definitely get it done.

Blow up as much as you want -- your day is coming up fast, and although I'm 3 weeks out, I feel overwhelmed as well, so go for it!

 

Also, congratulations to you and all the early November brides! Our big month is right around the corner! OMG, I can't believe it, and I can't breathe when I think about it.

Taping of the boobs - One of my BM's has larger boobs that typically require a bra. She has taped hers before and will be doing so on our wedding day. She prefers it to wearing a strapless bra and says that it's not too bad taking the tape off. I suggest sneaking into the washroom and replacing the tape with nipple tassles. hahaha.

 

Trash the dress - Personally, I like the au natural look for the TTD sessions. It gives it a "real" feel rather then a posed or "all dolled up" look which I think can be really hot when you're taking such unique photographs. I say natural looking make up (you don't want to cover up those cute freckles) and a light and flowing hairstyle (maybe a light wavy style).

Melissa, that's what this forum is for!! Blow up all you need to!!

 

Personally, I think the dress looks great! I'm also going to be taping my ladies, but I've never done it before, so will likely do a trial. Also, I've got something called 'Dry-sol' which I get over the counter at the pharmacy (no prescription needed). It's a liquid in a tube that you dab on your armpits at night, and the next day-- no sweat!! I was thinking I'd use it on the area I'm putting the stickers on, too, to prevent them from sliding off because of sweating too much! Check out Youtube for DIY hairstyles, I found a couple that I've been working on to save myself the $$ for my TTD and AHR. And I agree with Keira, go natural with the makeup. It will look less contrived...

Back from Edmonton, picked up some more dresses, got the wedding rings, another bathing suit, a 4-1 cover up, FI picked up some clothes, and FI got his BM a shirt that says "Mark's Bitch" on the back and Best Man Nov. 09 on the sleeve.

Ok ladies you all will be so happy to know that I just finished taking pics for my planning thread. I'm actually at 2 weeks today. But I'm going to hold off until thurs nite. I want to get pics of the gm gifts that arrive tomm and my final fitting is Thurs and I want you all to see me in my gown (the model on the website is too thin and doesn't do the gown justice. They need someone curvy like me to show you what the gown is really supposed to look like hahha) j/k.

 

OMG I had the worst nite last nite and I didn't sleep a wink. All I could think ab was the wedding and I didn't even go to sleep til my fi left out this morning. Then one of my foster parents called my cell at 8:15. Which is so annoying they know we don't start work til 9 (which means I wake up at 8:45) yet they call early for some reason and then in the message say "I know you don't start work til 9 but..... " So freaking annoying. So anyway I've been dead tired all day. I had to take one of my clients to the hospital bc she's addicted to pain meds and she needed a fix (now clearly she covered that all up but... She starts counseling on thurs so.... I'm so horrible I've been working with this young lady for 3 years and the fact that she is addicted to pain meds really pisses me off, bc she's such great girl and has so much potential ) and I was horrified bc I really don't wanna die from H1N1 before my wedding. I sat there in a mask for hours, omg the ppl in there were so sick that now i think my tummy hurts lol....

 

Ok I'm going to take a long hot bath and then i'm getting in the bed early.

My Wedding Shower at work is tomm. So exciting. But first I have to look at Melissa pictures lol.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
