Thanks Alisa!  I also ordered a 2nd dress for my TTD (a white bridesmaid dress), and because my wedding dress didn't really fit me, we ordered the next size up for the TTD.  Now she has to take it in over an inch...so I'm definitely excited to see my hard P90X work paying off!

 

Oh..and I also put Spanish for Dummies books in the OOT bags too!

I actually didn't cut my face out of this, but its the best one to show the dress lol (and also works out so that pics of 'me' in this dress aren't leaked haha).  The back pic includes what my bustle will look like (double french).

Also...I posted a thread for my OOT bags that are pretty much done!  I know...WAY ahead of the game...but I am SO happy to be done buying things for them and to have it out of the way.  I still have to finish doing the mugs (I just did two for the pic) and the welcome booklets.

 

Here's the link in case you want to check them out :o)

The dress looks beautiful. Very dramatic from behind! I checked out your OOTs too! Amazing! I'm amazed at all of the stuff you scored for free. I have some catching up to do msnwink.gif

Thanks so much!!  I have a nice size train when the bustle isn't up like that, but I'm VERY happy with how the bustle is going to turn out!  She tried a few different options and this by far was the best.

 

I follow quite a few couponing sites and have a friend that introduces a lot to me also.  There are almost always coupons out there for shout wipes -- the most recent i've seen is 55 cents off 1 -- which you can use on the travel size.  I was lucky enough to store a $2 off 2, so got the trial sizes all free!  Same with the Johnson and Johnson first aid kits..I had a $3 off 3 coup and got those all for free too.  If you need multiples of the same coupon, you can buy them from a coupon clipping service online!  That's what I did!  I used www.coupondede.com I believe, but you can find them on ebay even.

Because of all of the recent OOT talk I thought that I'd share with you guys that there are a TON of suitable totes in the bargain bins at Target right now. It looks like a few of you have already scooped them up, but if you're still searching for your bags, the Target bags are definitely worth checking out. On another note, today I tried on my veil and jewelry - just to get into the spirit rolleyes.gif

My Mom actually made the veil for me and that makes it EXTRA special to me. I saw one on etsy that I was gaga for, so she kinda cloned it. Here's a link to the etsy one : http://www.etsy.com/listing/68045726/double-layer-teardrop-veil-in-champagne

and here's a pic of me in mine :

Have you girls all got your jewelry and veils? Let's see those accessories!

Accessories is actually what I'm focusing on next!! I have the dress and BM dresses but no accessories (including shoes!). I am looking for a nice hair flower for TTD and also a tiara...except I think I want less of a princess tiara and more of a headband. I have NO idea if I should buy the BMs their accessories...what are you girls all doing? I paid for their dresses...

My girls bought their shoes and dresses, so I bought their necklaces, earrings, wristlets and hair flowers.  The vendor I used on etsy that made hair flower made smaller matching flowers for all of my girls!  I was very happy with how they all turned out.  I also had a vendor on etsy make custom wristlets to match the orange from their hair flowers!

I bought my girls their shoes and dresses. I also got them some starfish earrings to wear on the day. Their dresses are one shoulder so not having a necklace. I have a delicate looking necklace and bracelet to wear which my mum bought me. I also have a side tiara but no veil...

 

here's my tiara

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
