    The planning thread would not follow protocol if I didn’t begin by thanking Tammy for having the vision to put this forum together. I remember her saying that when the forum was very new that she would “ask a question and have to research and find the answers myself.” Well Tammy thank you for talking to yourself!!! This forum has truly been a Godsend! I started this journey not knowing what a TTD, BD, IUD…not IUD, but you get the point. I had NO clue of all of the wonderful things that were out there to help me make this experience so wonderful. Thank you MODS for keeping things flowing nicely. Thank you my fellow brides for all of the inspiration and help that you provided along the way. I love the” honor amongst thieves” going on because.. I stole/ borrowed so many templates, ideas and energy from you lovely ladies and I won’t begin to attempt to name all the names, but two that stick out in my head are Geralyn and Andi..so to you ladies and the rest THANK YOU! XOXOXO
    I need to give a SPECIAL thank you to the February 2010 + our honorary February bride you have truly been a support system for me through this fun, exciting, stressful, happy emotional rollercoaster of a journey and I want you all to know that you are my girls!! Before I get all mushy…
    Our story
    I will marry my best friend at Dreams Resort at Los Cabos, Mexico on Valentine’s Day 2010. We always plan great trips for Vday and thought that it was the perfect day for us to get married. Our ceremony will take place at 4:00PM on the beach under a bamboo huppah. Our reception will be on the Oceana Terrace.
    The proposal
    He is my absolute best friend!! We have a 5 yr old daughter together who attends a ritzy private school here in NY. She is the apple of our eyes and I have secretly wanted to have her last name for a long time ☺. We have been together a total of 7 years. His birthday is on Christmas. For Christmas we go skiing and stay at Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid NY. A few years ago we had our usual suite. I was feeling a little sick so I said I would lie down before we went out for dinner. During the time I was napping, he ordered room service and had the bathroom all set up with a bubble bath rose petals and candles. We sat down to eat dinner, I opened my covered plate to find the cutest little blue box ☺ of course I said yes…

      Click the image to open in full size. I am taking this jacket to put on during the reception if I get chilly.. the red is the exact color of my shoes.. thought it might be cute together. If it doesn’t look as good as I think it does in my head, I won’t wear it lol.
      (Elise is a manager at Pronovias now..she also used to work at Kleinfield here in NY) or she could be working for both..who knows. I also have a pic with Carmel, but she wasn’t looking her best (in the pic) and I didn’t want to throw her under the bus ☺
      **Side note** These pictures are during my first fitting, the dress fits perfectly now, but I didn’t have my camera on the final fitting.. I know..shame on me.
      Grooms attire
      Chris is having his suit custom made at the Polo Mansion here in New York..I was not with him during his fitting and he is not one to whip out the camera and have someone take a pic ☹..I will attach a pic when we pick it up this Saturday, don’t know if he will be in it when I snap it, he is not camera happy like I am lol. It is a linen/silk blend in a dark sand color.

                  Everything looks great! How exciting :) I really love your new shoes! I think that they will go a lot better with your dress than the original ones.

                      I am still working on printing up the menus, I was waiting to get some more cardstock in at one of my jobsites with the great color copier ☺. They will have similar flourishing as the other signage throughout the wedding. So will the signature drink frame. I will add these pics to the thread before I leave.
