    i forgot to write about what i have done for my wedding.
    well we don't have a TA yet but chritinap did recommend someone and i also have one in ontario where my mom lives.
    we are having a AHR one in calgary and one in toronto. we are actually let our moms be in charge of that since we are paying for our moms trips.
    for oot bag stuff i got a bunch of hand sany from bath and boday works. i am still in the early stages since i will not be getting married until feb 2011.
    once i do get some more stuff done i will update.
    i appriciate all the stuff you ladies have put up already!!

      For those of you looking for "beachy" style bridesmaid dresses check the online Sears site...I bought a great aqua colored halter dress to wear at our AHR and it was under 100$.You can have it shipped to you or you can pick it up at the store, if it doesn't fit they will let you return it as long as it still has this special tag on it.

      It is only available in the aqua and a yellow ( was in a baby pink also before) now .It was very comfortable to wear and light, can definately be worn again.

      It is on the site under womens dresses, bridal.

        I took my dress last night for my first fitting and like the lady so far. I will post a better review after the 14th when I go for my second fitting. She is taking it in ALL over, adding in boning, tightening up the seams (it was a sample) and putting cups in.. She charged me $179 which I thought was great!

          $179 sounds like a steal of a deal for all that. Make sure to let us know. Thanks guinea pig Nadine!

          Jen- Nice to see you on here finally. I actually am on here more than my e-mail (well, my home one, not work). Do you have pics of the two dresses? We all love to see them and it's nice to have outside opinions sometimes.

                i don't think there is anything else going on this weekend!! make sure you have gum or something to suck on you will need it..... when i quit for the first time i had an obsession with going to the gym and chewing on straws lol.. try not to get your self in to stressful situations. that is why i start smoking again but i am going to try in the new year to quit.good luck!!!

                  Hey everyone,

                  I went to Lillianas in Kensington for my first fitting last night. She is AMAZING! She really knows what she is talking about I would definately recommend her so far :)

                      haha dont worry I bought my dress in January and got it in June and was willing to get it fit then but they made me wait unless my weight changed. I just have a ton of things with school going on in January so I want as little stress as possible :) It wont take very long to get it altered Im picking it up on December 17th so you have nothing to worry about!
