hoyt- I cannot believe you leave in three days. You must be flipping out! April is almost here, ladies!

NYbeachbride- I hope you have a great legal day. Nice that you have the day off- it'll be so relaxing! I have to get FI to get on the phone tomorrow and book ours- I'm thinking the 23 of April (two days before we leave) hopefully at the courthouse. We need to get on that.
Thanks! Yes, it is "one of a kind". Our jeweller had never done one like that, so it is unique.

And your legal is not booked yet? Is not not something to be done in advance? I'd be so stressed...

I am so happy you were able to spend a little time with him, and he had a good bachelore party!!

60$ for all of those summer dresses, I'm totally jealous. We don't have a Ross here... always see them on T.V but none here hissyfit.gif
My goal, is to have all my summer clothes and some weddings things (cake cutting serve,garter) in my big luggage, and the rest of the wedding stuff goes to some of the guest and our carry-on. We waste more weight by adding extra luggages (I weight my big luggage, and alone with nothing in it weight 11.5lbs)
I haven't finish packing yet, so I have no idea if I can pull this off. But also we are handing all the in town guest their OOT bags, or else we would never would have enough room.

OMG, 5 days!!! you must be so excited, nervous at all?

I am just nervous about everything but about marrying FI lol.
Love you sand kit as well Tracy, very pretty! I'm like you, marrying him is not something to be nervous about, I've already chosen him! Rigth now work is much more stressing!

The flowers are fabulous, nice colours, very "real". And your OOT bags are quite nice, hope everyone appreciate them.

Tonight I have to work a bit (maybe 1-2 hours??), but I really feel I need to start on the luggage thing, and try my dress again to see if it still fits well. I really have no room in there, no corset back on mine!

I'm with you, it's all the wedding stuff and how much it's going to weight that is more stressful then actually marrying. Even more nervous putting my dress on then signing the papers. LOL your so right.. we already picked them!

Thank you for the lovely comment!!:)

Whoops- I meant to tell you how much I liked all of your stuff, Erin! I really like your flowers- the colours are so pretty. Your mugs and all of your OOT bags are really great, too. Nice work, seems like you got a lot done this weekend.

So I finally got all my guest booked!!!

I actually have a gf, who keeps saying she's coming, but then she goes back and says 'we'll see' so I gave up on her. She's just so weird like that (yes I have a lot of odd friends lol) Today, she's really acting like she's going to book. So finally I lied and said that my wedding coordinator gave me a dead line for the confirmation numbers she wanted (Also she's called a bunch of other times, ask me my opinion on other hotels!!! I told her finally that I don't have time to look into other resorts, I've reviewed mine and that's all, if she wants to stay somewhere else, she can but I don't know anything and don't ask me, it's not like our resort is booked) (I didn't lie about the cofirmation # needed, just never got a deadline) and that if she wants to come to the wedding, I needed her # today... then she says she hasn't gotten her schedule for that work, so she needs to wait until Wednesday. I told her it was very nice to try and come, but that she ran out of time. To be honest.... who has time to deal with people like that (good friend or not) 14 days before your wedding!!!

Sorry for the vent!

 

Good note, OOT bags are all done. here a pic...

ewok, loved your rings, very pretty and unique!

 

hoyt75, glad you got a chance to spend a little time with your FI before the wedding. Wow, 5 days to go... how exciting! By the way, I always use the space bags when I travel. They are so handy!

 

Erin, I loved all of your wedding stuff. You were a busy lady this weekend. Must be such a relief to be done with those items. Oh, and I love your rings!

 

Tracy, I'm happy you finally got all of your guests booked. Way to go on putting your foot down with your friend. Great job on your OOT bags. I really like your sand ceremony vases, I considered doing that, but just decided to do the candle lighting ceremony instead.

 

I had my second dress fitting today. My sister had her fitting for her bridesmaid dress today too. I'm getting even more excited now cheer2.gif. I have one more fitting before the wedding. I'll post a couple of pics from today's fitting later, after I get them loaded into photobucket.

Wow,your friend is so strange, I mean, up to a certain point you can understand she's making her mind up, worried about prices maybe, but come on! 14 days before and she doesn't know if she can have the vacation time? I have to "prepare" my vacation longer than that (OK, a bit of exaggeration here...) If she doesn't want to come (no time off, money, ...) she could just have said so, or even make a white lie. You definitely don't need this added stress.

BTW, the OOT bag content is again very nice, great ideas, and you did dive in for the labels. The personalized Spanish for Dummies is great.

Just wanted to share photos from my 2nd dress fitting today. My sister also had her bridesmaid dress fitting, but she did not need any alterations because the dress fit her perfectly. I still have one more fitting to approve the modification that is being done to the bodice of the dress. Iâ€m having a small ruffle edge added to the top of the bodice. This is to give me more coverage over the 2nd/3rd degree burns I have on my chest.

 

My sister in her bridesmaid dress (my maid of honor will be wearing the same style & color dress).

The front of my dress with the hem and alterations in the bust and waist complete (itâ€s so nice to finally have the dress fit me properly). My hair will be done differently of course. I may or may not wear the necklace. It depends on how the modification turns out.

Back view of my dress bustled. The bustle as shown has five points, the seamstress is going to add one more point to the bustle. I think she did a great job making the bustle for this dress.

Close-up of my veil. It has a pearl edge. I just stuck it in my hair to get an idea of how it would look with the dress, but this is the veil I will be wearing for the wedding. The dress that I am touching has a ruffle edge along the bodice, similar to what will be done on my dress, but the ruffle on my dress wonâ€t sit as high.

Oh, and I donâ€t think I ever shared pics of our rings.

 

My E-ring (white gold with garnet and diamond). My birthstone is garnet and his is diamond.

Our complete set. My wedding band is an embraceable that goes around my e-ring. We got him a yellow gold band with white gold accent because yellow gold looks better on his hand than white gold. We will probably also end up getting a set of plain bands to wear to work when we need to.

Wow, Tracy, your OOT stuff looks great! I really like your Spanish phrase books and you mugs came out really well. The bags are also really nice. I cant believe your friend kept putting you off for so long. You did the right thing by putting your foot down!

 

Shortnsweet- I love your dress! It bustles really nicely, too. It looks gorgeous on you- it must be so nice to have all of the alterations done so that you can finally see how it looks. I also really like your engagement ring- especially with the wedding band.

 

ETA- I love seeing all of the pictures that you guys have been putting up lately. This is so exciting!
