    so then I thought ,heck I'll just put it all up, and this is the one I only liked... but my issue is, I def don't want to wake up any earlier then I already have to, and def don't want to spend way to much time at the spa for my hair, so do you think this would take to much time to do? and will it hurt with all the freaking bobby pins?!?!

    Wow, well I def admire you girl, for doing all of those things in less then a year!!!! Must be very stressful.

    I wish I could say I'm really organized like you girls, I just have a word documents with a list, no sheet
    hehe The other night I was working on our favours and asked FI why he wouldn't help me and his response was "the last time I worked on arts and crafts I was eight!" and then he started listing off the things he HAS been helpful with. It's true what he was saying, except his list was all things that were done MONTHS ago and mostly just involved him making a decision between two things! LOL! But at the least he's very supportive of whatever I'm working on - as long as he can still watch tv and be supportive. I think guys are missing some sort of wedding gene to be honest!

    AND p.s. you girls were BUSY yesterday! There were at least THREE PAGES that I didn't write on a single time which is insane!!! I know I probably missed a couple things to comment on too...
    I agree, came back from work and wow, seems nobody was working! I did such a big MQ, but still skipped things! I think your FI is just like other men, if it were only their decision, they would just have a ceremony and a big regular party, no fussing with decor, favors, ...

      OMG,Mine does the same same thing... minus the art and crafts.. that's priceless!!!!
      But he mentions how he did help me with make a decision, or taking me somewhere!! I have my own car thank you very much!! ah men.. gotta love them!! lol


      My mom always told me that whenever I travel I should pack at least one bikini and a full change of clothes in my carry on so I fully agree with you on not checking the vitals.

      I always do the same!!

      Tracy - I also had the first picture as one to do my hair from... actually I wound up with it saved about four times so I knew I must really like it. One other detail to take into consideration is your dress. What kind of back does it have? I voted for the half up/half down look but my dress also has the corset style from mid back down to my tailbone pretty much so I know that will help me vent a lot of my body heat. Whereas if your dress has a solid back right up to your shoulder blades then you might be cooler with the more full up-do. Just food for thought anyways.

      And curling your hair like the second picture doesn't take *too* long and probably not any longer than the first picture. Anyone good with the bobby pins won't make them hurt either - mostly! There's always one or two that will dig in a bit but they can usually be adjusted for you. (I've worn my hair like in the second pic before!!). I say just go with what you're happiest with - how it looks with your dress and honestly FI will love however you wear it. I can bet he won't take his eyes off you
      tracy, both hair styles are really pretty and i agree with meghan, i don't think one will take longer than the other. one thing to consider though is whether you're getting married on the beach. i know some beaches can get pretty windy and i've seen beach ceremony pics where the bride has her hair all in her face! not a great look!
      thank you so much for mentioning about being married on the beach and it being windy, and then hair flying everywhere... the last thing I want is to be always adjusting myself. I was watching four weddings yesterday.. one of them was playing with her veil because it kept going in her face. (throught the entiry ceremony!!)
      So thanks to your comment I decided to stick with all up.
      Your probably all right, one wont take any longer then another.
      Have you picked your hair style?

The other factor with wearing your hair down is the humidity- it can make it really hard for your hair to hold a curl so they might fall out by the end of the night. Either way will look gorgeous, though. Oh- and do you have really long hair plus lots of detail on the back of your dress? Wearing your hair down could hide some of your dress depending on where it comes to in the back, you know?
      Good point, since my hair is supper straight as it is, and has a hard time to hold a curl, so being up with probably be the best best!
      I do have long hair, and lots of detail in the back!! Another reason why I decided to go with all up. Thanks sooooo much for your comment.. really help me choose.
      I do have a veil tho (my mom bought it) but I will just wear it for the ceremony.

When i've tried my dress on with the veil, I've pt my hair in the 1/2 up, 1/2 down look with a clip and I like the way it looks - everyone knows me for my hair, so I want it to show.

      LOL... the same one!!! we all must really like the pic. are you choosing the half up half don thing?
      Me too... I never never wear my hair up.. no even to work out !


      PS, I had my second fitting yesterday - they need to put a drawstring stitch in the bustline so it doesn't gap - picking it up next weekend. My friend from California, who can't come to the wedding was in town so she was able to come to the fitting - bawling her eyes out seeing me in the dress...I was so happy she could be there!

      amazing, so it feels like it's all coming together then! That's so nice she was able to at least see your dress, and have that moment with her!!

      I actually had to cut down on coffee I'm so hyper now!

I also have a round face, and one trick for updos is to just leave a small strand of hair loose around the face. It would be very sexy and elegant I think.

      Thanks so much for your comment, as I really have a round face, I will take your advice and ask them to leave a strand of hair loos.
      I'm so glad you said the pins wont hurt to much (to much lo!! what we go through to look great!!) I agree I think it will look very elegan and sexy.. will go perfect with the church wedding dress, but also the beach one!! Thanks again!!!!!!
      Have you decided what your doing for your hair?

      LOL so funny you say that, I just spoke with a guy friend of mine, who will be asking his gf to marry him soon, and she is like me who loves beachs and the south.. and they've spoke about it and she would only want a destination wedding, well his comment was 'whatever she wants, how ever she wants, but I don't want to be a part of the planning... I'll just be there'
      Men!!
      Thanks everyone again so much for all of your comments and advice.. I'm just at a point where I have no more brain space and can't make any more decisions. You guys really helped me!!!

        Hi everyone, I wanted to report that Erin's Bachelorette party is a success!!
        I had the pleasure of joining them this evening and we had a blast. The girls got a pink limo, went out to dinner and got a little rowdy with a gorgeous view of the city in the background! Erin had the cutest outfit on and a crown and sash that her maid of honor made for her!
        Awesome night out, thanks for letting me join in!! Congrats bachelorette!! :-)

          Kimmy, Thanks for letting us know how Erin's bachelorette party went. Sounds like fun.

          Tracy, I agree that having your hair up is probaly best to avoid having it blowing all over the place on the beach! I think it will look great on you.

                Thanks Tracy, I’ve been doing some major cleaning around the house this weekend. Everything has been such a mess with all of the wedding stuff scattered around the house. I got the downstairs cleaned up, now I have to work on getting the upstairs cleaned up today. My sister will be in town next weekend from Illinois. She is getting her bridesmaids dress fitting here and I will be getting my second dress fitting the same day (bought at the same bridal shop). I will be carrying her bridesmaids dress down to Miami with me, this way she doesn’t have to bring her dress on the plane.

                Yesterday, I finally finished up my OOT bags and wedding favor bags. Here are a few pictures; check out my post for more pictures Click the image to open in full size.

                  That'll be nice you and your sis will be able to spend sometime together before the wedding, some one on one time before the big day!!

                    Thanks! It feels great to finally have that done.

                    It probably won't be my final dress fitting since the seamstress is making a modification to the dress for me.

                      I'm so glad it went well and that you were able to join them. A pink limo- really? That sounds like so much fun!


                      Congrats on getting all of your OOT bags put together and packed, shortnsweet! They look great- I really like the picture that you've got on the OOT bags. Must be a real relief to have that checked off of your list. Good luck with your fitting!

                      Tracy- glad I was able to help with the hair dillema. I'm in the same boat- I'm still trying to narrow down a style. Maybe I'll take a page from your book and post up some pictures when I get home from work today.
                      Loving married life!
