He is a giant, like super tall, so finding things on a regualr basis is difficult. He just needs to get a shirt and a tie.

     

    Now all we have to get for the GM is footwear and they seem to all want different things. Surprisingly the guys are kind of being drama cases about what they want to wear, you would think it would be the girls.

     

    Next stop is Allana's (spelling?) to look for bm dresses and bridal debut for me. I went to Crystals Bridal in the North side on the weekend, nice store and nice staff but very small selection.


    I know, my FI was the same about things I wouldn't expect him to care about.  But he's been so easy going about everything I let him at least choose that, hahahaa.  Good luck with the dress!  I had so much fun dress shopping.

      I was in Edmonton to look at BM dresses with my MOH, but that didn't work out. My MOH informed me that she's pregnant and most likely won't be coming to my wedding :( I don't know what to think - on one hand I'm very happy and excited for her, but on the other hand I am so sad that she isn't going to be at my wedding. And a small part of me is also a little bit resentful because I did everything for her when she got married and now I feel kinda cheated. I know that's terrible to say and I'm not sure how to handle this.

        By the way thanks to everyone who let me know about the VS store. I still want to check it out but I think I'll give it a couple weeks for the craziness to die down.

          Don't feel terrible, I kind of feel the same way, I'm my friends MOH and she's not coming to mine either, but no prego excuse for her, ahhahaa.  I feel guilty thinking it but its the same, its like well I'm doing AL this crap fopr you, spending ALL this money, and you're not coming to mine?  But I"m trying to be nice inside and knock those thoughts on the head with a sledgehammer... 

           

          Its a tough one to handle, which is why Im not having a bridal party at all, and I know she's probably a ltitle pissed abuot it beacuse she insistant upon me having a bridal party at my AHR but that just seems to pointless to me.  So I'm not having one at all, I'm not having a bridal party or a bachelorette beacuse I have nobody to throw them for me, and who cares, I am marrying my FI and thats all that matters, gotta keep telling myself that.

            Tell me about it! In total we spent over $4000 for my friends wedding - travel, hotel, dress, hair etc. And my Aunt ended up planning my bridal shower because neither of my bridesmaids did anything. I don't even want a bachelorette for the same reason. It would just be my aunt stuck planning everything and those two not helping at all. I wish we had decided on no bridal party from the beginning. Too much stress and drama. Now I have to find a replacement MOH but I can't ask anyone until she announces her pregnancy because I'm the only one that knows about it.

            Too bad we aren't going to be in Jamaica at the same time - we could have a double bachelorette party at the resort :)

            All my b**ching aside, I think you definitely have the right attitude about everything - you are right all that matters is that I will be marrying my FI. I have to see past all the drama and focus on that. Thanks!

              Oh don't get me wrong, I say Im all good about it but you should hear the battles in my head!!  I am a bit bitter, I'm trying to get over it.  The whole if you think it it will be true mantra, hahaha.  my mom says that she can barely remember who was at her wedding, all she remembers is seeing my dad for the first time as she walked down the isle.  That made me tear up and kind of put it into perspective.  She lectured me about the marriage being more important then the wedding, so it got me thinking.

               

              That puts you in a tough position though, ebacuse you're kind of on hold with the dresses until then!  Did she say when she will tell people?  Did you ask her if its possible to only tell the replacement and nobdoy else?  That would drive me NUTS having to play the waiting game thats for sure. 

               

              That would be great if we could!  Too bad we won't see eachother!!!  Are you staying at the Bahia for 2 weeks?

                Aww that story about your Mom and Dad's wedding is so sweet. I'm totally bitter too and trying not to be lol.

                As far as my friend goes, she doesn't want to tell anyone about the pregnancy for 3 months. I really don't think this will happen though, her husband is dying to tell people. I asked my Aunt ( thank god for her ) to go dress shopping with me tomorrow so I think she knows something is going on.

                We might actually end up staying at the Bahia for 2 weeks if it's way cheaper than anywhere else. If we did we would be ther from the 4 th to the 18th. My TA still hasn't gotten back to me with the quotes. What date do you arrive?

                  We arrive on the 18th!!!   So no possibility it looks like.  But hopefully I'll have a TON of your wedding pics to look at when I get back!

                   

                  What colour are you going for the bridesmaids?  how many are you having?

                    You could just not replace her and then it is one less thing to stress about.  I was in a wedding where one bridesmaid didn't show up, so two GM ended up walking one BM up and down the aisle, it was cute b/c she looked so proud to have a guy on each arm!
                     

                    I agree with you on the money thing.  Being a BM for an at home wedding(which I have done 3 times) always ends up costing me $700-$1000, plus the time that goes into planning showers and stagettes.  All I'm asking my BM to pay for is their trip and their shoes.  No bridal shower, maybe a stagette, we will see!

                     

                    Good luck with everything and remember that is why we are marrying our FI's, they are our best friends and stick with us through everything!

                      Hey ladies,

                       

                      I think I posted on this thread a LONG time ago but I thought I would say hello again! How's everything going for you all? I am counting down, I am on my way to the Mayan Riviera in 9 weeks, holy %&*%!!! I don't have any of the major stuff to do still except for final fitting of my dress, but I am getting all worried about 'extras' like favours and stuff. Not sure if they are necessary or not - you can go crazy with all that stuff so easily! Oh yeah, and my groom procrastinated on getting the outfits for his side, so I have to go on a wild chase around the city in hopes of finding the same linen suit that we got him from Le Chateau.

                       

                      Ah well! What can ya do?

                       

                      :o)
