I thought I was the only one that gained weight during their engagement. Glad I'm not alone!  Between people wanting to celebrate our engagment,  holidays and general summer fun it's been a downward spiral in that department. I've gotta buckle down though because I should be having my first fitting in about 10 weekssmile43.gif I know it's hard to go shopping when you're not feeling so hot about yourself but you'll look gorgeous in your dress!!!!    One good thing about having one picked out is then you know what body part(s) you need to work harder at toning!
10 weeks wow exciting

Girl! I won't even go there. When I met the FI 2 1/2 yrs ago I was working out 6 days a week. Now I'm cooking 6 days a week and licking the spoon and bottom of the plate clean. He's slim, has a soccer physique I guess. I have to work suuuuuuuper hard to stay at a decent weight. Every 5 pounds I gain he's like " babe I swear I'm gonna get super supportive" as he is spooning cereal into his mouth at midnight. I know I know, he didn't make me gain weight I did it myself , but when I was single I didn't cook much. Made some boring chix and broccoli or had a lean cuisine standing at my counter. I love to cook and NOW I have an audience. We are Caribbean so rice, rice, rice. :( Started spinning again, slowly but surely. My arse is on fire tho. Lolol

65 invites went out to families. But I doubt "Fulana and her 10 kids are making the trip" LMFAO

Yet scary haha! I was surprised they wanted 8-12 weeks to do my fittings, probably because I'm barely 5'2" and my bust, waist, and hips were 3 different sizes. I'm a seamstresses nightmare!!!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
