October 2010 Brides?

Recommended Posts

Hi Jayski, welcome to the October 2010 bride thread.

 

So I went to try on my dress on Saturday and I asked them when I should have it altered. I leave for my wedding October 23rd. The salon told me I should make my first appointment for the alterations for the end of August so about 7 weeks before I leave for the wedding. I guess it is different at every salon as someone else mentioned their salon would charge them extra 7 weeks before the wedding.

Oh so here is the kicker, I had to order my dress in a bigger size to fit my bust. When I ordered it, it was too big in the waist and hips but fit in the bust. Well I've lost a few pounds, not much at all but now the dress is too big in the bust too. Had I ordered a size down, it probably would have fit perfect and not needed any alterations. Oh well, I am hoping to lose 9 lbs before the final alterations so I figure it would have had to be altered anyway.

Welcome to the October group. Hope the planning is going well.

I have this odd calm feeling about the wedding and I'm not sure why. No one has booked, family still plans to (or so they say), but we will be there with a photographer and in the end, we will be married.

I booked back in December or January.

So you're not supposed to use Zoom? I had cancer when I was 3! Crazy! I'm going to look into that. I usually use crest white strips and plan to do that before the wedding.

As far as weight loss goes, diet is the hardest part. People do not realize that what they burn is not as much as they think, and extra calories add up fast. I'm a marathon runner but am working on gaining muscle so I've been lifting weights 5 days a week instead of just 3 and also heavier weights. Cardio is great, but if you're just putting in the time and not the effort it won't get you the results you desire. Every time I do cardio it has a purpose. Ha, I'm obsessed with fitness and manage a personal training company, so I go off on the subject a lot......
Hi there,

I need some adivce! I have trouble eating a certain number of calories - I find that I get really hungry and go past my calorie limit. Any tips for managing hunger and keeping calorie counts low?

Thanks :)

Hi everyone,

I just ordered some stuff from vistaprint including my pre-departure brochures (thanks to all the great ideas from other girls in the forum) and would like to share. How's everyone else doing on planning?

I bought my TTD tonight. One of the local bridal stores was doing a twilight madness sale where the store was open till 11 and certain sample dresses were on sale for 50% or more. I decided why not go check it out as I had tried on a dress there that I really liked but it was way too expensive for my TTD. Well, of course, that one was not on sale. They only had a few chiffon flowy dresses so I decided to try them all one. Well turns out I loved one that I never would have imagined I would have liked. THe best part, it was 75% off of $450, so with taxes I paid only $120 for a TTD I love.

PROTEIN!!! I'm becoming a little meathead but I'm getting the muscle tone I've wanted! I eat protein with every meal and no carbs after 12 noon. Do you ever buy protein powder (whey) and drink protein shakes (with water or almond milk)? Try, you'll feel so full and bloated that you won't be hungry! My supper every night is a chicken breast on a lettuce salad with pepper and spray butter. I'm not usually this strict, but I only have one wedding!! :) PM me if you need any more advice. I'm finally seeing results because I started practicing what I preach!

LOL Wendy I liked this post!!! I finally had to tell myself to chill out about people booking. My girls/family have booked, but the groomsmen are not in any hurry. I spun myself into a frenzy but then decided it wasn't worth it. You're so right, in the end, you will be married. I'm going to live by your motto. :) Hope all is well with you!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
