I'm shocked that after 33-34 years and having kids she would be acting the way she is.  It stinks that you're losing a friend you've had for years, but it is true that people just grow apart as they get older.  I actually "departed" lol from a friendship a couple years ago with a girl I've been friends for close to 15 years as well.  She was still stuck in that high school mentality and I just didn't care or need that anymore. LOL Honestly, can't really say I ever really missed her either.  Still stinks to lose a friend though!  Best wishes to you as always!

I think unfortunately that most of us have gone through something like that with a friend at some point. 

 

So I have a question, my FSIL got married last October at the Beach Palace and her and her husband kept making comments about how they don't think a full length gown is appropriate for a destination wedding.  I haven't decided what kind of dress I want but that comment still sticks out in my head and I am afraid that it is going to influence my choice.  How do you get that niggling thought out of your head?

Don't let anyone influence what YOU want. Its not their wedding, its yours. I know in your mind, you had a perception of the way you wanted to look on the day of your wedding. Don't let that thought be swayed. Stay true to yourself.

Thanks!  

 

Okay ladies it is cold and rainy in Milwaukee and I'm feeling rather blah.  What aspect of your planning are you currently working on?

 

We are working on our MIB invitations.  We are working on aging the map invites so they look like they have been traveling for quite a while.  We are also trying to come up with a scent for the bottles.  I wish I could find a coconut scent but Michaels didn't have any.

OMG, it is crappy today, isn't it. I got drenched in the rain today!

 

I'm not really planning anything right now regarding the wedding. FI and I are just trying to discuss the logistics and flow of the actual wedding day right now. 40 days to go!

I oredered my raffia fans from http://www.koyalwholesale.com/ I bought 2 dozen and it came out to $30.00 (that includes shipping).

I'm very happy with them. People say they come in different sizes.... but they look great to me.

 

My girls and I have decided on the style dress... color swatch is on it's way ... hopefully the bridesmaid dresses will be ordered within the week! yahoo.

As for AHR- my boss offered me his land to use... I'll check on that this week as well. It is all falling into place.

That's awesome Mishi!  It really does seem that everything is falling into place.   And See, yeah it is totally crappy out today.

I found my Aloe at Target today so I am happy about that it was one of the final pre OOT bag items that i wanted to have in hand.  So now the rest is just the run stuff, like mugs and the bags themselves etc...I had been buying things when I found a deal, so I am pretty set now on kit stuff.  

 

My goal is to have everything done by January 1 so that I can enjoy the last 4 months without too much stress except for packing and the final details.

I'm currently working on my menu, escort cards, and program fans.  Almost done and about to upload to vistaprint!  Yesterday I met up with my MoH and BM and we started planning my bachelorette party!  So fun!!!

 

On the down side, still trying to figure out what to do with all the men's pants...  :(

 

merrylee - have you started dress shopping yet?  Did your FSIL wear a short gown?

And no i haven't even started dress shopping yet and yes she wore a short dress.  My FI just said I can have whatever I want.
