Hey Queen Diva I see you live in the south suburbs and you are a Negril bride too!!!!
I'm doing a BD or maybe pre-BD thing this spring and I'm super nervous. I'm using Vavoom Pinups in the city. They do kind of a retro style and got a good review from another friend. Two of my friends are also going to go at the same time. If it goes well, I'll use those pics for a BD book, or maybe next year's birthday present...

St. Thomas is going to be a blast. I have never been to the Caribbean, but was researching St. Lucia before we decided on Maui. I think a cruise wedding would be so much fun! Are you being given a hard time about how long your engagement is? Howard and my parents are both driving us crazy, but we are paying for our own wedding and have some friends that need the time to save in order to afford to go.
Thanks about the kitty, she insane but super cute :-)
We haven't been given a very hard time by anyone so far. Inviting everyone to a DW isn't common in our families (lots of elopments), so most people love the idea and like having the notice to save up or do a payment plan. A few people have kind of laughed when they mentioned getting our STD magnet and said, "well there's no way I'm going to THAT." It takes a bit of practice to just smile and sweetly say "well I hope you can make it to the welcome home party, we'd love to see you!"

@ the future Liza Leu, I love your name! So cute! Yes, I look at those very same shows, although I haven't looked at my Bridalplasty recordings yet. Getting a lil tired of all the re-runs though. I also like Four Weddings & My Fair Wedding. I look at Platinum Weddings sometimes, but the predictability & fakeness gets on my nerves alot.
As a budget-oriented girl, I love that the Platinum Weddings show is predictable and fake!! :-) I want a purse dog too, I totally understand, but FI wants a German Shepherd. I'll probably let him win that one eventually.
