Julie, I'm 5' nothing, so short!!!! I only got small heels because I didn't want to be uncomfortable, but now I wish I had 5 inch heels!


You girls are so funny! I'm at work right now, I planned to get up early and post pics, but I overslept and am at work right now, but plan to get home a little early today, while FI is out picking hailey up at school, so I should be able to post.


Yes, I think the $230 is pricey too, but I totally understand why.

She has to chop a lot of material off and the lace on my dress goes down at an angle, so she has to raise the lace up so it doesn't get cut off. She's fixing the neckline to make it lay flatter, she's cutting down the modesty panel because I didn't want it all the way up the corset. She's putting in cups, she's doing a really cute bustle, she has to hem the crinoline under my dress and she's also hemming my crinoline skirt that I'm wearing under my dress because its too long, like everything else. I think thats everything, so I do understand that she's doing a lot of work sad.gif

I may try my dress without the additional skirt when I get it. I bought a narrow one because I didn't want it too poufy, but I still feel like its too poufy, so maybe when I get it home I'll try it alone.

pictures to come soon, around 2:00

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
