I can't wait to wear this dress woot.gif

1)  My check-in with my trainer at the gym today was very surprising ---- I've lost 17 pounds!  This means that I've actually lost about 22 pounds of fat and gained 5 pounds of muscle!  I can hardly believe it.  I know I've been working my ass off (literally) with eating right and exercise, but with Thanksgiving, I was sure that I had retarded my progress.  YIPPEEEE!!!  My first dress fitting is in January.  We'll have to scale me down a couple sizes!! LOL!  woot.gif

 

2)  I've FINALLY finished our flowers!!!  This was the DIY project I was most dreading, so I knew I had to tackle it ASAP before procrastinating to death and them turning out like poop.  So, here are the final results:

I already posted close-ups of my bridal bouquet and the pics in the locket and the charm, so here are the close-ups of the other bouquet charms:

Close-up of the boutonneires:

3)  I'm almost done with our Time Capsule Guest Book.  I just need to buy some heart seal stickers from Joann's, make the "key" for who is writing which message (1 year, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, or 30 years), have my Mom & I will paste the rest of the liners in the envelopes over xmas, and then we'll bundle them up for the OOT bags.  (Guests recieve their letter in the OOT bag so they have a bit of time to put a special message in it.  Then, they'll bring it to the ceremony and drop it in the box!)  Here are the results so far:

The front of the envelopes (with camera flash, so you can see the shimmer):

Env fronts with flash.jpg

 

Without flash, so you can see the lettering on the metal:

Env fronts no flash.jpg

 

Envelope liners:

The card (handstamped by moi, of course!):

TC Card.jpg

 

FI and I will write our cards for each year period (1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 30)... and there'll be 1-3 others each period for us to open, too. :)

 

4)  Our first wedding gift arrived from our registry!  It was so exciting, hahaa!

 

Alright, back to sipping my wine and DIYing!  Hope your weekends are going well!!

Wow --- I can't believe you made this yourself!  My favorite part are the pearls between the flowers. :)  Hmmm, as for color, maybe you could switch out the ribbon color at the bottom and use the same pearl color inbetween the flowers (just a few with the white pearls)?  Just an idea!  You must be so proud of your beautiful bouquet!  It's even more meaningful that you made it. :)

I'm using the spa for hair and make-up + mani & pedi (I'm also doing a hair and make-up trial before the big day).  I'm using all our resort credit allotted for the spa for this, lol. 

 

For our TTD, I'm using Adrian Guerra for my hair and make-up.  He'll also come with us on-site during the session for touch-ups.

We didn't use a TA.  We had our guests book through a link that MP provided us.  We did this because it was cheaper for guests to book through our membership than a TA....... but I'm thinking that had we gone through a TA, more might have booked since everyone needed to pay in full two months before the wedding (which is this Thursday) instead of only putting a certain amount down and making payments/paying the rest upon arrival.
