May 2010 Brides!

Recommended Posts

This is too funny, reading all of these dreams aka nightmares.

 

My dreams haven't been too vivid, but one I didn't have shoes and in another dream I forgot my dress. =)

 

I had my first fitting last Thursday and it was great. No alerations needed, just a hem =)

 

But it's still $225 to do the hem. I need to talk to her for the second fitting, because I was capped at $275...and there is no way IF I did need alterations, that it would only cost me $50 more dollars...I'm in the wrong business...this is where the money is LOL!

For me they feel more like nightmares... the commonality is forgetting key things or being lost... LOL, I feel like that awake too at this point!

I'm so jealou your dress fit... My dress was suppsed to fit and it was big on me, I had no intentions of needing alterations and I don't feel like my size is any different but now I have 3 additional appointments and a whole other bill.. yarg.

Just had another weddingmare last night!!! That we were at the reception and everyone was late, and I was calling people to come but it seemed like no one wanted to come to the reception, and then I looked down and noticed that I was in a t-shirt and jeans and not my dress... (lol) so I tried to get my bridesmaids to come back to the room with me to help me put my dress on but they were all pre-occupied with drinking and visiting so I went alone! And the food at the reception was terrible... what a bad dream. lol.

Oh Cara - That's a bad one =(

 

KittenHeart - I h ope they don't charge you an arm and a leg for the alterations. Which designer did you go with for the dress and the TD?

Cara, my dreams are similar! Everyone is too busy to help me, everyone is partying too much!

I'm sure they will... my designer is Matthew Christopher.

Thank you! I have the 2009 Collection Lalique dress, the fitted mermaid that's one of his non-layered dresses.

You did get a lot done!!! What an adorable idea, hand painted wooden hangers for your bridesmaids/MOH dresses, I would have never thought of that!

I have been working out more, tanning now, teeth whitening & getting a chemical peel/facial once a month. I am using Bobbi Brown facial moisturizer and eye cream now too.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
