Kinda get my drift!!!!! strangers!!!!!
        So Mark and I asked them if they would wear simular colour clothing for the wedding because we're both wearing very blah colours. They both agreed and I picked their clothes.
        My son's stuff arrived and he stuck it in the closet, Steph's, dress and shoes arrive two days later and she tries her's on. My son and his Gfriend come in at that very moment and Steph says to my son, go get your stuff on and lets see how gay we look." He did and I have to say my heart was beating out of my chest and I got my camera and batteries were dead. Go figure!!
        That had to be the most communication they have ever had. Steph said her and her gfriends were teasing him one night he came home blasted last xmas and started eating the decorated dog cookies her and her friends made. I wasn't there to see that, so this was my major moment. I was very touched and emotional to know they both are into us getting married. My emotional meltdown. lol
        How goes your planning?
        susie,
        it made me smile reading that.coming from a spilt family(sorry if thats the wrong word but you know what i mean) i can understand.your wedding will give them something in common so it may help bring them together a little.their age is the worst age though i,m sure you can remember hehe.i suppose for you though it is really important just to know they are ok with you getting married.it sounds like they are though.

        i have now got 2 pairs of shoes that i don,t really really like.i will end up with lots when i should have just got the expensive ones i really liked.we just need to go and get rings now really.trying to save we have to pay the wedding of in november.

            I hear you, DW can be very expensive.. We have to pay for our trip by Oct.31... Scarey hey!!!! I am trying really hard not to go over board with things. I have made my own centre pieces (only 5). I refuse to have fake flowers (although some I have seen are very stunning). I don't have bridesmaids and groomsmen... just the two of us in the wedding party and about 16 guest. I really want it to be special with re-mortaging the house to do it. Keep me posted!!!

                Well, the difficult part is we live in China. So, yes I get good deals on things but it's definitely hard to plan a wedding from China. I am having my wedding dress made here and instead of the $350 I would pay in the U.S., I'm only paying $70. I just hope it turns out, I go for my first fitting today! Wish me luck!

                Good Luck to all!

                    Well, we've been in Shanghai, China for one year now! Our company asked us to move here and help start up operations here. It's been a great experience!

                    I had my 1st dress fitting today! Everything went great. The dress was almost exact as the U.S. one! The only thing I had to have done was have the bottom taken up about 1/4". It was too long! I wish I could post some pictures but I don't have enough posts yet!
