Welcome Megan!!!

 

Greys, the suit fit him ok, Im not so sure about the jacket just yet, I may exchange it for a smaller size, but the quality and look of the suit is great!!!

 

Kathy, def check out the knock off thread to get an idea of how the dresses look

The dress fits but they need to do some alterations to remove alot of the train and it needs to be hemmed. Yeah I think I may do the same but i don't know yet. gotta think about it more i guess. I love the bottom of NHK's dress on the knockoff thread and may try that bottom with the alfred angelo 2070 top and if it works out I could probably wear that for both the ceremony and the reception and then even the TTD cause it has straps. I am so indecisive it's not even funny and we dont' have much time left. I just don't know if I could order something without trying it on first and of course i am like you and haven't found one where i like the top and the bottom together.

I think she was considering white even because she said that is why she asked me if I was going to wear white or ivory. When i told her white I guess she figured ivory would be ok!!!

FI's mom wants to wear a purple dress, probably a plum color and his dad is wearing tan pants and I am not sure what color of shirt yet.

For $1.50 i thought what the hell and it actually looks good on, lays flat and not too puffed out. I am so not a DIY person so I am curious to see how the white flower will turn out.

Lisa I think having someone else beside you in invory will make your dress look even more vibrant.  I am on the other end of the spectrum, my ceremony dress is ivory so I don't want anyone in white inc. FI.  So everyone else has to wear ivory, this being FI and our son (he's 2) .  I custom ordered their outfits from Island Importer so they'll look exactly the same. My Reception dress is white but I fine with sticking out in white against all the rest of the ivory for the evening part.  I loooovvvveeee both my dresses bu tI kinda wish my ceremony dress was white as well.  Oh well I am super happy with it nonetheless, I am jsut making everyone elses outfits how I want them instead of changing my dress.

Hey ladies! Ive been dyinfg to post on her about my BD shoot but FI has been around ever since i got home! It was sooo much fun and i totally recommend it to everybody! I had been going back and forth about doing one, i know FI would love it and never expect it because it is so unlike me but at the same time i have post baby body which isnt quite sexy and i still have like 40 more lbs that i wanted to lose but i said screw it and did it anyways. I figure now matter how great our bodies are there is something we will complain about it anyways because lets face it we're girls and are never going to be completely happy with our bodies but our FIs LOVE our bodies so even though we may not think it looks great FIs will totally love it!  It was such a blast to do and i felt sexy even though my body isnt perfect! My best friend went with me and did a BD shoot for her boyfriends birthday that is coming up. I am so glad she was there and we were able to do it together that definitely helped ease my nerves and stress.  The photographer was great and made it very relaxed. And a bit of champagne helped :) Bad news is that i dont get to see any of them for like 2 weeks! Im going to die waiting that long but i'll post the link to the viewing gallery as soon as i get it. And of course if she sends me a teaser i'll post it asap!

Planning is going good i think im almost finished with everything too, at least i better be because im running out of money LOL. I am kind of bummed though because i though the chuppa for the beach ceremony came with the wedding package but I just found out last week that its $200!! Not sure if its worth the $200 to only use it for $30 minutes, it's beautiful but pricey.

Teira, I knew you would have an amazing time and I'm sure you & FI will love the results. I can't wait to see some previews. I think it's very self empowering to flaunt ourselves for the camera. And I agree that we will always see imperfections, so we might as well embrace them just as our FI's have. Plus, there's a high likelihood that things will start to get worse haha. 

 

I wish I was done planning. I feel like I still have a lot to do. I'm probably going home for a weekend and I warned FI that we won't have much time to go out with friends because we need to get a ton of wedding stuff settled.

I agree that is pricey for 30 mins!  There are always so many extra things that cost more than you think they would!  We just booked the dance floor andnit was $600 which i think is way over priced but FI said we need it!  We will have to meet for a drink when i get to Dreams and swap stories!!
