    Yay! The more the merrier...welcome ladies! 

     

    I have exactly 61 days to go. Depends on the day if I'm freaking out or not... I think I have a lot to do, but I think I can handle it. I found my OOT bags this weekend at the DOLLAR TREE STORE!!! I couldn't believe it. I'm not doing a monogram or anything because if people wanna use them again, they don't have to worry about having a logo or anything. The bags are super cute tho...and you can't beat $1 each!!

     

    I'm stuffing envelopes tonight with my pre-travel brochure! Yay!  ...and my FI promised me his undivided attention tonight for a wedding planning discussion. He's a typical man and doesn't care whats happening...but i want his opinion on a couple things. Today I feel content with things. I don't know how tomorrow will be though! LOL~

      Too funny!! My fiance is exactly the same way! I told my him this weekend that March was going to be a big month on him helping with stuff for the wedding!  First up... ring shopping!!  Can't wait to pick out our wedding bands!

          Thanks for the welcome! We're actually going with Carnival. A bunch of our guests will be first time cruisers, so we wanted to try and keep it as cheap as possible for them.

            Do any of you WI brides know of a bridal store that sells Sottero & Midgley dresses? I found the 'Adorae Louise' dress while browsing online and it's EXACTLY what I was looking for, but I'm having a hard time finding a vendor around here! Thanks ladies.

              Same here, we'll be on the Liberty, March 31-April 7, 2012. It'll be spring break so I'm sure it'll be insane! :D

                  Thanks I'll have to do so, I love Maggie Sottero dresses they're so many beautiful ones! I'm hoping to find one similar to mine that is a little less expensive but I love this one and it looks well worth 1300$ to me!

                    Okay I could just possibly be having a bad day, but I need to vent and since I love my MidWest Brides... you get to be the lucky ones!  I don't know how many of you have been active today, but I am so upset with this fellow BDW bride! LOL  I know she was just trying to get to her 150 posts, but OMG she posted, I swear, over 60 "thanks for sharing" or "looks good" within 1 hour.  I'm just so frustrated 'cause she bumped all these old threads that have exactly no relevance.  She answered a question for a bride that got married in 2008!!  Uh!  It's one thing to welcome brides in the Newbie forum, I mean that's basically what it's for, but she did it in ALL forums!  Ugh!!! LOL I know it's not a big deal and you can all just tell me to relax, but uh!  Just upset about it right now. HAHAH I know, I know so petty!!!
