    Luckily no nightmares for me yet, just frustrated with the WC with Beaches has been the biggest amount of stress for me I think.

      Finally all of my bridesmaids are booked! About time. I can't say for my FI's groomsmen...still two need to book.

        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!!

        -put the ribbon around the handles of my raffia fans and attached an orchid
        -tied blue/pink ribbon on my bubbles for the end of the ceremony
        -made my starfish pins that will be attached to the chair bows at the ceremony...

        whew! Trying to get lots done now so I'm not freaking out the 1st week in May!
        holy crafty girl, sammy!! You've gotten a TON accomplished! I definitely need to get busy

        And Di, that's great your bridesmaids are all booked! What a relief!

          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

                    booo at them!!

                    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.
