Teria, SOOO CUTE!!! I just got mine in the mail yesterday too!! I don't have a picture, but they exactly like these but teal & fuschia (http://ny-image1.ets...N.180077601.jpg)
In other news... sorry, I have to rant and this is the best place to do it.
My BEST FRIEND planned a trip with her current bf to Australia before I got engaged. Long story short, I planned around her as they were only going to be gone about 6 months... I made it so my wedding fell a few months after they got back. Well, they, well HE changed plans and now they want to stay for 2 years (HE capitalized because she doesn't really make the descions, he does... and he's really never cared to get to know me, my FI or any of our group of friends). Her and I had a huge fight about this before she left, because she promised me that she'd still come. I bought her bridesmaid dress for her and had everything ready to go. She mentions to me that if they can't find flights out from Au. to Jamaica that are less then $2000 (including hotel) they won't be able to afford to come. WHAT? We're all paying $1700 to go flying from Canada, you really think you'll find flights for $2000 from Australia? Her response: "Well you guys went to Mexico for $500 last year, I thought it would be like that" (note, we went last minute on a super good deal...). Either way, before she left we came to an understanding (sort of) and after crying about it for months I decided there was nothing I could do so I should stop letting it bother me.
Today I'm reading her bf's facebook and he mentions to a friend that they have a lease signed in AU until Feb then they're thinking they may tour Asia for 2 months or so and go from there... I love how they can spend all the money in the world travelling but coming to my wedding isn't priority. I mean, her and FI are great friends too, we're all in the same really small tight knit group. I've talked to her on skype a bunch of times already and she hasn't brought up the wedding once.
Am I being insanely selfish? I mean... we knew going into this that many of our friends couldn't come but she's my best friend since grade 9 and it's not like she can't afford it, or can't get work off, it's literally that "there are better things to do"... that's how it feels a least.
