      Okay ladies question for everyone:  Are the dresses that the mothers are wearing do they match your color scheme or have you requested that they not wear your wedding colors?  The reason I ask we have our biological mothers as well as stepmoms coming.  My head is ready to spin off with them asking what they should wear and when I suggest something other than what they have picked out they say I am being a bridezilla  Our colors for the wedding are purple, lime green and ivory (mainly purple and ivory).  Am I being stupid not wanting the mothers to have the wedding colors or if they have the wedding colors in their outfits make the pictures look better?  UGH!

        I can only tell you my opinion for what it's worth.

         

        It is not worth the stress and the drama. I told all parents and witnesses to wear whatever they like! It's a beautiful beach, the pictures will be beautiful with you and your loved ones in them :) My strategy has been to minimize drama as much as possible.

          I am all 4 rose pedals too. I agree with you, the coconuts look very strange ...

              I told my mom and fmil and f. step mother in law it did not matter I just did not want them in navy blue the bridesmaid dresses color. I am trying to not create stress or drama either my fmil creates enough of it for everyone!

               

              I just worked 5 12 hour shifts so no wedding stuff got done this weekend. Sent out my luggage tags and pre travel brochures last week. This week is my last dress fitting, and my plan is to also send my design stuff to Rebecca from allurements to do my welcome books and programs.

               

              I ordered my cake topper we got a bobble head so excited for that! I also ordered koozies from etsy. I think that is all I did last week seems like not enough!

                Has anyone traded their dessert on the regular menu dinner or family style dinner for a credit towards their wedding cake?  Also are you having a wedding cake and if so, what size?

                  What are you doing for gifts? I am guessing people will show up with either money or gift cards ...

                      So I emailed my fiance's stepmom and asked her if her entire dress is purple (BM's dress color). I nicely asked that if it was all purple to look for another dress.  I have 4 Moms coming and having such a hard time with them!! They all point out purple dresses! And the purple's they pick clash with the purple of the BMs.  So we will see what she emails back as she can be a little difficult sometimes

                       

                      As for gifts I have told people that we are not expecting gifts since people are spending so much to come already but..........if they wanted to that we would appreciate money or gift cards!

                       

                      The cake is part of our package at Dreams. 

                       

                      Have my second bridal shower on Saturday! Getting excited :)
