I feel beautiful and it's comfortable and I CANNOT wait to wear it!

 

My BM are wearing dresses by Bill Levkoff. There are two styles (links below)

The groomsmen are wearing light tan pants with a white button down and a pastel pink tie. MY FI is wearing the same thing but with a jacket (so a suit) and dress shoes

 

I don't have a flower girl or ring bearer but would dress them in normal wedding attire as well

 

Some people want a real beachy feel and that's awesome and great, I'm just not one of them I want a more formal feeling

We have similar tastes! I loooove ruching in a fit and flare dress!!

 

I also really like your bridesmaid dresses!

It was freaking awesome. I've seen her before. She does get better each time. So worth the cost and the time. She's having another tour in December and I want to go 😠but I don't want to pay 300 for each ticket again lol

Have you tried J.Crew? They're having a great sale now, with an additional 40 percent off factory items. This dress for bridesmaids is less than 90 bucks before the sale price and they have different colors:

so random but I went to school with 3 girls and they each called themselves differently. One was Kim, another Kimmy and the third Kimberly ...

I actually make crafts and stuff like floral arrangements (silk and real) and lot of other stuff to sell.. .. and jewelry    so I feel like people will expect something like this from me.   

 

Good thing I think its fun hahaha

 

AND 

 

Thank You for saying so! : )

love your creativity! where do you get most of your supplies? michaels or online? i'm hoping to make my own centerpieces but i am not crafty at all so i have no clue where to get things.

I love non-white dresses! I'm leaning towards ivory but I've seen some champage and blush pink dresses that are cute.

The only thing is it only comes in Ivory and I need a White dress b/c the FI has chosen his white suit (got it on sale at express) and i guess we kinda have to match. So I am going with Jasmine's Bridal to replicate it for me in white. I too, am not wearing a "beachy, destination" wedding dress. I figured...Go big or Go Home! I'm only doing this once and I'll never get to wear something like this again!!! But my girls are doing the beachy feel with convertible dresses and flat silver sandals. My flower girls, however, will be in the traditional white dress with the colored sash and my ring bearer's father has insisted "a true gentleman does not go casual for such an occasion", so my baby cousin will be in a grey vest and pants with white shirt and bow tie.

LOVE!! The first dress I tried on was another White by Vera gown and my sisters' mouths literally dropped when i walked out of the dressing room. I'm checking out a couple more stores this weekend but so far that dress is the frontrunner!

How is everyone handling how long people stay? I love that people are willing to come so far to my wedding and make a vacation out of it but how do I politely tell them that this is still our honeymoon too?  

 

I feel like my sisters are more excited about going to Jamaica than the actual wedding! They are talking about buying an extra suitcase when they already each have 2 huge ones!

 

I'm like 'really?? I don't want you hanging around my entire wedding-moon!!!"
