    Hey ladies We ordered our TShirts last night. I think they will be pretty boring though. We really waited til the last min on this item and now we are just getting white tees with green writing. So Blah....

    Ok I picked up TY cards today (from marshalls lol) and now we plan to do tys tonite and tomm from the shower. What exactly are you all saying in your thank yous for cash?

    I sent my wedding stuff down to my wc last sat and we haven't heard anything yet. We sent it usps parcel and we didnt receive a tracking number just and insurance num. I shoulda went with fi to the post office.

    My rehearsal and rehearsal brunch is next sat.

    I got my hair done today from my former stylist that I made my bm hunt down (she's all the way in another state). Things went very well and we made the plans for my wedding style.

    OK it's freezing in my house I'm going to go get some hot choco and settle in for tv time.

      Ashley, things sound like are all falling perfectly in place :) Do you think your WC would let you know when she receives the package?

        So we finished our favors last night, with the help with Erika on the wording (Thanks again!)

        We did CD favors. We put some songs from the wedding that mean a lot to us, some that werent at the wedding that mean a lot to us, and than a few of our guests sent us their favorite love songs so we put those on there to.

        We were able to print the cd and labels at my FI work, they have a cd making machine. And than the insert we did at home. On our ol faithful printer. We tried to use the inserts we bought from the store with their template but it kept printing lines through it. So we ended up designing it in photoshop and printing on cardstock. Cutting all of them out wasnt that much fun, but it was worth it in the end

        Of course I have pictures :)

                  Thanks everyone :)

                  I think we are getting down to the bottom of the to do list! Im said that cant be right. Almost to good to be true!

                  So the dress situation...you girls are going to think Im crazy but I ordered a backup. I was talking to a friend about everything, and she said...Melis...I dont think its really the dress. I think its just not you. That one comment gave me an Ah-ha moment I guess. I think I keep trying to fit into this bridal persona that isnt really me. Maybe thats why Ive never really felt like, wow this is the dress that makes me feel like a bride. I have been caught between what Melissa wants, and how weddings are suppose to be. How is that when Im doing a destination wedding in the first place?!

                  So after a very long day of sorting through my thoughts, I thought...what do you love? I love retro/vintage. I wanted to do more that kind of style dress in the beginning, but had a hard time finding anything. So after going back to a website thats in my favorites, I ended up ordering a tea length halter dress, a marilyn monroe style dress. It will be here on Monday, so I should be able to make a concrete decision on which dress I prefer than.

                  I ordered this dress....

                  I went with a light pink crinoline though vs the white...not sure on that one, but I wanted a little some extra to it. I figure if I dont like it I can find a crinoline locally.

                  So Ive been on the hunt for shoes. I want wedges since Ill be in the sand, but now my shoes will really be seen.......wedges are hard to find! I wasnt sure if I wanted cork or not.....but what do you think about these?
