Any other 2014 brides here getting an early start?

Recommended Posts

Okay, this is coming from a mother of the bride...I am getting the same response from a lot of people about my daughters DW and I just tell people that I think it's a great idea and that this is a great way to weed out the folks that would only be there because they feel obligated or are out for a free meal and drinks! You should see the looks on their faces! It totally shuts them up! I go on to say that we don't want anyone to feel obligated to go and that we only want the people there that truley want to be there. My daughter wants to be surrounded by those she loves and love her....not a bunch of people who didn't have anything better to do that night! Sorry if I sound bitchy, but I'm all for telling the truth...if they don't like it, oh well.
Very supportive mom I love it

So went to David's Bridal today to try on some dresses to get an idea of type of dress and how it fit my body type. Didn't have any wow moments.it was okay I guess. Guess just not what i expected. Also tried bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dresses. Flower girl loved it. Every dress BM and I liked didn't come in our colors bummer. was kinda awkward because my consultant was just married in January and she is getting divorced already she was kinda down her family not supportive and so on and so on.

I'm up! Heading to Michaels to figure out how I can liven up my STD envelopes. Plus I need to add magnetic tape to the back of the cards so ppl can tick them to fridge.

 

Gotta keep it moving!

 

 

May I suggest everyone that doesn't have a picture attached to their names perhaps put one up if they're comfortable soon. It's nice to have a face to the new friends/ therapists/ wedding advisors. Lol

Michaels 20% off even sale items this week.. AC Moore 50% off one item -- you probably already knew that hhehe

Glad to see people finalizing dates and paying those deposits!! SO EXCITING!

 

I have been working on my STDs and I am almost done designing them. In the meantime, I am waiting for my magnetic sheets, custom stamps, and pretty yellow envelopes to arrive. I am including save the date magnets, but making them myself because it's ridiculous that most places charge like $2 a magnet! :)

 

Here is a picture of what the magnet will look like:

I can't wait to put it all together!

Those are very cute!!

I feel like I am sooo behind on things. The FI and I had the date Of Nov 2014 but I am starting school soon so I don't know if that date will cut into my school schedule. I am getting so frustrated and he is getting frustrated with me. How was I to know I would get accepted into culinary school? I feel so bad!!!!   Any who, I  am going to my school tomorrow to check out my schedule so I can finally have a wedding date. Wish me luck!!!!

 

Congrats on School!!!!

That sucks about your consultant!  No worries on the dress hunt - you got time to find THE ONE!

I finally got our invitations made!! Now I feel like I am getting somewhere. I think that they have a good time to send their RSVP back (it is January 31st). The rooms are reserved until February 14th so hopefully people realize that. I wrote it on the invitation itself but knowing people and how they leave things for last minute, it makes me nervous. I feel like at the end of the day, I am going to be the one making all the reservations for my family anyway. I am not too excited about that and I hope that they at least give me some sort of anticipation. :-/ DW are really a lot of work... to think that I thought it was going to be simple.

That is definitely giving people plenty of time to respond.  I am only giving people 8 weeks or so to respond.  I'm also pretty sure we'll be booking all of my FI family. My family is already booked and ready to go, his we'll be dragging.  I thought DW were easy peasy too, they aren't and anyone that says "oh, you have it so easy" has NO idea!
