And thanks for the compliments. Jay is pretty great and we had so much planning our wedding. Just wanted to add that a couple's massage or a private catamaran cruise with champagne can be nice for an eloping couple to do on wedding day.

Hey Airampz, here is a link to my dress. David's Bridal - Chiffon A-line gown with split front skirt, satin cuff neckline and empire waist. I tried on a billion dresses and contemplated between two of them (this was not one of the two) for weeks and finally went to get the one I chose and tried this one on just to do it and chose it on the spot. It was just so simple and light. Though it may not be as beautiful as some of them, the fact that it is so simple will make me feel comfortable, which is important to me. I love it, but haven't seen it since I bought it several weeks ago because it takes six weeks to alter, I think because they are so busy because of prom/graduation season etc. So hopefully I will love it when I get it back too. Obviously the model is not me and I am not that skinny so it looks a bit different on me. It is very simple so I feel like I can wear a veil maybe without feeling too ridiculous Opinions I also got roped into buying a headband at David's bridal. Not sure if I will wear the headband, veil, or both. I planned on wearing a flower at first so I bought those too just in case I decided I wanted to wear that and could practice. Opinions? I wish I would have waited until I got the dress. But be careful if you try on dresses at David's because you get an assistant for just you and they bring you all of these dresses then put a veil and headband etc and just make you so exited and you feel so beautiful that you just get so into it and want to get it all. At least I did. I went to tons of boutiques and trying them on there was the best. Maybe because I was by myself??
It is so fun trying them on. Go to the store, you will have fun. My fiancee got his clothes at Dillards. He was initially going to get just pants and shirt. But they had Perry Ellis pants and jacket on sale and only one jacket left and it was his size so we took it as a sign and it looks awesome on him. I think I will feel a little better with him in a jacket at least for the actual ceremony only 10-15 minutes because I will be all dressy and he can take it off so we will have both looks.
Stores are having sales on linen jackets/pants etc now and I heard (from other threads) they are really hard to find at other times during the year so I would maybe look quick. Keep us updated on the dress search. It is so fun.

We're also running off just the two of us for a beach wedding with an AHR a couple of weeks after we return. I CAN'T wait! I haven't worked out the details of exactly how the ceremony will go, but I'm going to finish up the remainder of my planning next week while I'm off work so I'll keep you posted.
Your getting married a day before me, only I'm getting married in Mexico. I also see you're doing it at the Melia. I was there last year and loved it. It is a beautiful hotel, the grounds are just gorgeous. The Dominican Rep. is a beautiful country and I am sure you'll have no problems finding someone to help you get ready (I am from there so that's why I'm saying it lol) and I am sure you'll also have a great time..

***Ok ladies, so how many of you are going the garter route even if it's just the two of you? Traditionally, they are worn for the garter toss or to hold up stockings but I was thinking of wearing a New York Yankees garter for him to find underneath my dress as a special surprise. What are you brides doing?

What about a veil? How many of you will be wearing a veil? I can't decide. I sort of want to but just not sure...
