We live in a small town (900 ppl) and the nearest city is 2 hours away...He's driving me MENTAL!! Still no outfits for him and the groomsmen and he just wants to wear semi casual clothes....UGH sorry about the rant... I also just found out I have to go dress shopping again, I found one that I looooved on Ebay that was supposed to be custom made. Boy did I get hosed, it was cheap but the thing never did show up
    i need to work on my tan lines--i have some strap lines and i need to get rid of them! any suggestions?

      I have MAJOR tan lines from getting sunburned on the lake. It almost looks like I have a white bikini on when naked. I was thinking about going over to the pool at a friend's house and do a topless tan at the end of September. Is this not a good idea?

        Yep, don't wait! you gotta work on those tanlines now!
        (in my opinion!) My cousin got married in May and I was her MOH and some of her bridesmaids had tan lines and it looked bad I have to say.
        And especially if you are the bride - you def gotta watch out for them. It's a pain and my friends prob think I'm crazy, but I'm OCD about my tanlines - today I just laid out ALLLLLLLL day - but I had a bandeau top on.

          I would def wear a strapless top and just lay out as much as possible!! If all else, you can go in a stand-up tanning unit and that tans your chest quite well. I'm sure a couple times would do it!

                My fiance is going to dress up for the big day. I picked out the suit/shirt/tie at Nordstrom beforehand and we went back to try everything on. He could not believe how "painless" it was for him. On top of that, the suit was 50% off and the shirt was on sale too.
                What are you girls' FI's wearing? Nick wants to just wear white capris with a white button up shirt which I'm fine with but have nooo idea where to fine mens white capris. Any ideas?

                Also, what's your plans for favors and getting them there? My Uncle started a charity for providing teddy bears for children in hospitals and ambulances so does anyone think putting a note at each seat that we've donated x amount of money to his charity would be an alright thing to do?

                Thanks for your input, and sorry for the rant!!!

                  I'm a late December bride! I got engaged in June and was gone for most part of June and July, so here's my "checked" list:

                  1. Date and place set - Dec. 12, 2009 at Sands resort in Turks and Caicos
                  2. STD sent out
                  3. Hotel booked
                  4. Photographer booked - Ileana Ravasio
                  5. Make-up artist booked
                  6. Invitations are done, will send them out next week. It's a small wedding - I'm anticipating 20 people.
                  7. Musicians booked
                  8. Reception dress and shoes are bought. Still looking for a wedding dress and FI's pants/shirt
                  9. Welcome bbq and reception site/caterers (Kissing fish) - booked. Still not sure about menu though...
                  10. In process of selecting a cake...

                  After I already found and booked everything, I finally decided I needed a wedding coordinator - just to be there and keep everything under control, so I don't have to do that. I have a phone-meeting this Monday with one of them, hopefully she's not gonna charge me an arm and leg for it...

                  Still needs to be done
                  1. Favors and OOT bags
                  2. wedding dress
                  3. FI wedding band and outfit
                  4. .... I know I'm forgetting something... OMG - I need to book tickets! I'm so silly... I gotta get there somehow so we can get married!

                    I just ordered my dress! It was a hard decision for me- I really wanted the princess ball gown but it just isn't practical for the beach! I am happy with the one I ordered, it's just a totally different look than what I had anticipated!
