    I am way behind all of you with my dress search...my appointments are at the end of the month. I'm not that worried about timing (want something beachy and simple), but do feel some pressure seeing that you all are on first/second fittings. :o) Oops.

    I've got everything else pretty much done, or on track, but I've been procrastinating with the dress. I have so much stress about this and I am honestly not looking foward to trying on dresses. I'm sure that I'm freaking out for nothing and that it will actually be a wonderful experience. I find that, over the past three weeks, I've been stressing over things for no reason (just too much on my plate with wedding, work and daily life).

    The one bad thing about planning a destination wedding (for me) is that I'm constantly second guessing myself...I go in one direction and then think something else might be better. I did a mini table/centerpiece mockup the other day and my fiance and his family loved it (it is pretty) and all I could do was see the flaws. I've planning tons of events in the past, but never for myself. I am my worst client ever! I would love to have extra cash to hire a wedding coordinator.

    All of this is putting me in the worst funk. I know I'll get over it. I think the diet of only 800 calories a day is partly to blame. Ha ha. Thanks for listening...it is nice to just get it out there. Just a little wedding/life breakdown.

    800 cals a day?!?!? i'd be in a funk too!!!

    I know how you feel though, I think we all put too much pressure on ourselves. just remeber that everything will be amazing on your wedding day!
    and believe me...when you go for your dress appts, you'll have sooo much fun!!!!

          mrs.timpone :: Congrats on the weight loss!! thats awesome!! Im right there with ya, bustin my bootay at the gym hoping to lose as much weight as I can before the big day, i have a feeling that the sunday right before we fly out, im going to be at the gym on the treadmill getting my last work out in hahahha

          taranyc : I hope you have a great experience with your dress search...wedding dresses are made to make you feel and look beautiful so have a blast with it =)

          Carolina24: congrats on the down payment for your FI's ring...i totally agree once something is done and you can cross it off your list it totally feels real, as dorky as it sounds I constantly find myself saying to myself "I REALLY am gettng married!" hahahah

          Heres a little update on my part:
          We went shopping for the guys outfits this past saturday (i of course tagged along because i just HAD to be there lol) and all turned out well...we found just what we (I) were looking for. And I am ecstatic that we found the guys shirts in the exact color that I wanted and was scared we werent going to be able to find. So all the guys got their stuff now all they need is their shoes and theyre set. I also ordered my diamond headband off of Etsy, whch is a perfect match to the diamonds on my jewelry, so im stoked i found it. Well I guess thats it for now...cant wait to hear all of everyones updates!!

                      Hi & Welcome jamk32179! sounds exciting about your dress!!
                      Mrs. timpone: I am contemplating on using a sand frame or not...it does seem complicated!! & i too love the idea of the frame just because the vases would be difficult to transport, but I am just unsure of the whole process. What if the sand shifts within the frame while transporting it?? lol grrrrrr there has to be an easier process or a Dummies guide hahaha
