    Do you know that it literally like bleached an orange stain onto my black dress?!?  I had it drycleaned and everything.  I was shocked! 

     

    Just a word of caution. . ,  I'd hate to see you stain your gorgeous dress!!

     

    Sorry I'm such a Debbie Downer tonight  . . . insert sound effect.

    hahahaha I knew that already, that is why when we buy lilies from fancy floral shop, they remove the stem from the centre...so they don't release their nasty smell and the powders.

    My guys are going to wear Tommy Bahama shirts and shorts. I was leaning towards having them wear pants but I would feel horrible making them wear pants in July on the beach!! I saw a few shirts that I liked but havn't made them go get them yet. How long should one wait to tell the GM to get their attire? I feel like if I wait too long I would be stressing that they wouldn't get their clothes on time.

    I would make sure to check how long they will carry shorts in a style you like. We are doing shorts as well, and I figure it's summer now, better get what we want now, than to wait when it's no longer available. I realize Tommy Bahama has summer stuff all year long, but the styles change!

          Lindobride: Thanks for the advice about the lilies. I will make sure the little things in the middle are cut out. I definitely don't want to stain my dress!! I like the first pic too. The colors are amazing :) I wonder if I get to choose the appetizers like you did? I just saw cold appetizers but just thought they would pick for me. Hmmm, ill have to look into that!

           

          Murmel: I will look into the GM attire. I don't really have a style of shorts picked out yet, I actually just decided on having the guys wear shorts. I was leaning toward pants, but after the ungodly hot summer we've had here, I reconsidered thinking it is going to be way worse in Mexico! I did see shirts at the department store near me that I liked. I may have to take a trip there next week and see if they still have them. Otherwise....back to the drawing board! Thanks for the advice!

           

          All: I am definitely leaning towards the first pic!

            in Walmart, Fabricville and online.  They are called fashion tapes, initially created by 3M for medical usage (i.e. tape the wig on a patient), so it is hypoallergic.  You can also buy it online, there is a brand called Hollywood fashion tapes. 

            I usually buy a big roll from Fabricville, and use it to secure bra straps, fix hem...

            Since I don't like to eat bread, pasta, rice, I don't gain weight easily

            I came up with a solution in case my dress gets too loose.  I got a seamless corset and will tape it to the dress

              I didn't know they made seamless corsets?? thats wonderful!! I'm a little indecisive about the corset....i'm trying to get away with only wearing cups in my dress. I would hate to be pulling up my dress all night long! Good to hear about the tape too, im going to go get me some of that!!!!!!!

                yes, the corset is not the sexy lacey lingerie type, it is more a shape shaper with padded cups (since I am flat like a surf board, padded cups are must!).  Wearing a bra, put cups in the dress, the fashion tape all help!

                I buy my a Shopper's Drug Mart or Walmart. But I'm sure you can find it in many places. The one I usually use is literally called 'Body Tape'. Plus it's great to use to fix oops....such as pant leg hems coming undone.

                I might have to look into one of these. Thank for the idea.
