My maid of honor will be wearing the same dress. The dress is shown in brown, but we are ordering it in garnet (a deep red color). It is a D’Zage Style 8003. What do you think?

    Since we ordered the bridesmaids dress from the same shop as my dress, I was able to put on my dress sample and see how the bridesmaids dress will look next to mine. The surprising thing is that I look much thinner in my dress than the first time I tried it on (I only lost 5 pounds). It was a nice surprise though... more motivation to keep losing weight.

    It’s such a relief to get one more thing checked off the list!
    I am on to page 8 on this thread and I promise I will continue to read, please just forgive me if these questions have already been addressed.

    What I am working on
    -FI: suit (any suggestions on where I can get a linen suit, and how long it takes to order?)

    am i forgetting anything here that I may be behind in
    Anyway, it looks like you are on track with everything. I didn’t get officially engaged until August, so I didn’t send out my STDs until mid-September. So, I don’t think it was too late sending out STDs in August. I can’t think of anything else you may be forgetting other than what the other ladies have already suggested.

    Thank you so much for the compliments on my dress. I hope my FI likes my dress when he finally gets to see it on our wedding day .
    I agree that you're probably ok for the invites since you've already been able to send out your STD's so that your guests can book the time off and start saving up. Have you already gone through a travel agent to get pricing or do you think you'll find arrangements yourself? I may have missed if you commented on that already...

    Natasha - I am SURE that your FI will absolutely love you in your dress! It looks like it fits you really well and you looked very happy in it already! Haha, I worry about my FI liking me in my dress because he doesn't usually care for when I get dressed up and thinks I'm more attractive in track pants LOL!

      I had my pre-engagement shoot yesterday with my brother as the photographer. It's "pre" because my brother wants to hit NYC this weekend for the real shoot, this was just practice for the 3 of us :) This was all done on a whim because it was 70 degrees outside yesterday! We shot in my backyard with the theme of the shoot being "our first house". They came out really cute, here are two that I like so far. My brother's still processing the rest.

While many would just suggesting I go 'au naturel' I'm just not sure if that's for me! (and Tracy, pardon my very poor french reference there LOL!).

              That and I still haven't picked out any jewelery which I find hard to do with such a vague idea of what my dress looks like on me and what it would match best with! I really hate my pictures of when I first tried on my dress so they really don't help me much! Aaaaaaannd, I haven't even decided if I want to wear a veil (although FI has already requested I not wear any of the styles that cover my face or are the birdcage style!!!).

              I guess I'm just thankful that I still have a good three months to figure it out since my dress isn't expected in until February!! Eeeek!

              Meghan,

              Have you thought about having your seamstress add cups to your dress?? Although my dress isn't really low in the back, it only has one strap and the sweetheart dips pretty low in the front. It's ok as it, but my seamstress said that if I was worried about support and/or wanted a little more up top she can add cups for me.

              I already have all my accessories!! It's funny because I knew exactly what kind of bracelet and earrings I wanted to wear, so I ordered the bracelet from Etsy and hunted around for the earrings and I was lucky enough to find the exact style on sale in Macys. I went a little overboard on shoes though, because I initally thought I was wearing another dress but when I finally picked out my current dress my first pair wouldn't work So one day I went insane on Zappos and ordered 3 pair, but ended up settling on a pair that matched perfectly with my dress. I love Zappos for times like these because they have free shipping and returns for and entire year!!!

              As for my veil, I knew I didn't want to spend tons on it so I found the perfect one on ebay for $15!!!

                Christina- I have a wedquarters.com account for my wedding website, I've just been using that to upload pictures. I never had a photobucket account for some reason.

                The shoes you got from zappos, are they whtie? I'm thinking about wearing a brown pair as my wedding shoes and my mom flipped out saying they should be white.. does it matter?

                Natasha- I forgot to mention but your dress looks great on you. 5lbs makes a difference doesn't it?

                  Meghan-
                  I keep forgetting to reply about you padding issues. Like GregsBride said about the paddings. Get your alteration woman to put padding in, Like I did. But I learned to make sure they aren't to big or you'll look like me dress!!!

                    Tonya - The shoes I have now are actually champagne, but the inital pair were blue and green to match my wedding colors. I love colored shoes with wedding dresses and was totally bummed that my new dress just didn't quite work with the other shoes. I say go for it and get the brown shoes, I think they will be much more fab than just plain white ones!!

                      I'm wearing black shoes- my dress has a black sash. I just made sure that they were nice and dressy satin shoes so they wouldn't look like I just grabbed a pair from my closet, you know? I love coloured shoes with wedding dresses so I say if you want brown go for it!
                      Loving married life!
