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!
That's great!! talk about being in the wrong business, mine are $500!!! I'm gonna go broke from alterations.

Like you, KittenHeart, my dress was too big so I have to go for 2 more fittings. booo.
Gorgeous dress, btw!!

Di - That's wonderful that your girls are all booked!! I have all my bridesmaids booked except one that is quite questionable right now. 2 of FI's groomsmen bailed, really sad. We're totally uneven but I don't care anymore :)

 

I have 3 more guests to book and then done, it's a relief to almost be finished booking people!

 

Karen - I think my alterations will be $500 as well!! SO annoying... thank you for the compliment on my dress BTW!

Thank you!! :)

Oh really? They just had a trunk show 2 weeks ago at the bridal store I bought my dress from. I went there to pick up my dress and they were there... both times I've been to that bridal salon it was his trunk show! Clearly meant to be... although I met him and he measured me for my dress when I was there last year and he wasn't there 2 weeks ago.

Why not! His dresses are sooo pretty and unique :)

Did it make you mad when the groomsmen bailed? We just had a groomsman bail last night, and even though he says he really wanted to go, but just can't afford it, a part of me feels a little hurt because he's known about this since October of '08 at least... and how could he not save??

Sorry, actually we had 3 groomsmen bail.

Mad? I'm am piiiiissssed. These people had over 2 years to save, plan etc. One of them has tons of money and says he can't get time off work (which is BS) he's going to a DW a month prior for 2 days and a girl he works with is coming to my wedding for 5 with no issues. The next groomsman literally fell off the face of the earth, I haven't heard from him in a year so, bye bye. The third groomsmen didn't tell me he was coming until I emailed him letting him know I bought a tie for him and then trying to say he told my FI he wasn't coming, which he didn't. Soooo... yeah, good old flakey men.

I had a lot of fickle people, originally had 65 RSVP, down to now 40 booked so a lot of people have a lot of lame reasons. No I'm not bitter... hahaha wink.gif smile27.gif

one of FI's cousins cant go because he started a new job which is understandable...i have 7 girls all booked and he only has 3 booked and 2 still need to book. Yikes. we are thinking of asking my bm's husband to step in so it won't look so lopsided.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
