    So the general consensus I got on the serving set was not to even bother! To use the one from the resort.

    I'm using the serving set from the resort. FI and I agree that it's a waste of money for us

There are a lot of brides there looking for their dresses also. I would recommend going during the week days. I enjoyed my experience as I was put off by Pronovias AND David's Bridal's salesgirls being upset that I didn't immediately purchase the first dress. I fell in love with a White By Vera gown after I had gone in there with my mom for her dress. When I didn't immediately buy the dress, I got serious attitude. Needless to say Im getting a knockoff Vera. I cant see myself spending $1500 lol

        That's sweet you have one each and you all are such close friends. My FI and I have separate friends and we don't mix and mingle lol As for a dress code, I am requesting everyone to NOT wear dark colors. I love bright colors so I want the ladies to wear colorful dresses and the fellas to wear gray/tan/khaki/light blue. No black or navy. No jackets but I want them to wear ties

        Yeah I am probably going to give the guy ties to wear as part of my dress code package... I sorta of feel bad if its super hot... but oh well LOL

        ohhh cool, I just googled them. That is the best of both worlds of being barefoot with some accessory! Exactly! I guess it depends on what time of day when the wedding would be. I imagine noon/midday it would be hot but later on near sunset, it would be cool.

        good point Thanks!

        NOT changing my name. I'm one of three girls and we're the last ones in my family with our last name. Our father passed away at a young age when I was just a kid so I want to keep our family name in honor of him. I told my FI and he is OK with it because of my dad. However, he does prefer that I change it. He tries to guilt me (only half serious) by saying "don't you want to have the same last name as our kids?" My reply is that we're not any less of a family just because we have different last names.

        That is a sweet way to keep your family name going! I still haven't made my mind up either way.. I think this will be something that I just end up deciding on when the time comes to sign the papers. I have strong feelings for both ways :-

I told my friend that even though I'm not doing a wedding party she is my honorary Maid of Honor, which is exactly how I would have done it had I done a wedding party... my sisters would have been bridesmaids.

          I don't think my FI had an opinion either way...

          So because of the no wedding part/ very small guest list thing.... I am asking everyone to wear white/light beige ... I have a couple of reasons for this.... Are you having a dress code??

          Same here, we are having a smaller wedding and our only bridal party will be our daughters :)

                Wait! One of those shows is filmed in Mass? Which one? I have lots of options I think.. If I end up going to my Mom's and there is nothing really close to her we would always go to some place like Baltimore which is only a couple hours drive. She does come up this way every now and then so we could plan something when she does that. I'm really not worried about it... I just don't want to do it HAHA Once I get to the store I'm sure I'll have fun :)

                Yes..I found the gown is filmed there. Vows is the store..they have online shopping too but I wouldn't do that. Friend of mines wad a BM in a wedding went there with her bride. Not really much but great prices they said

                  This is another thing I haven't decided on wanting yet. The flowers on the cake I like from the resort are pretty so I think I might just stick with that. I did see some Swarovski letters that I like... But if I did a letter it would probably be the first letter of his last name.... However... I'm not sure I want to change my name so that wouldn't really make sense. Anyone else decided/ing on not changing your name?

                  I Here's my plan regarding my FI last name. I don't have a middle name so I'm making my last name my middle name and his my last name... Does that make sense? Lol
