I just got into a fight with my sisters- they are twins, both supposed to be bridesmaids and both of them are not coming. They told me its too much money. My sisters. the same people who encouraged me to have a destination wedding in the first place because a wedding in the states was typical, not my style, and boring. I planned it for Mexico- my sister complained. She already was planning a visit to DR. I switched partly because of her. Now she isn't coming.

     

    I cried to my fiance that we should have just eloped. I hope things work out but I'm not feeling optimistic at all. I would have better look throwing my invitation on Craigslist than sending it to my family. 

    Hey!! I had to laugh at your post that you feel like eloping everyday. I already have the kids and a house with my fiance. We got engaged a little over a year ago in St. John, found out I was preggo with twins in September...our wedding was supposed to be this past summer, but since we had the twins we pushed it to 7/2013....talk about trying to plan a wedding, working full-time, and 8 month old twins at home. Sometimes I feel like pulling my hair out!! lol just had to share.

        My color scheme is similar- You don't necessarily need 150 posts- but you do if you want to open attachments. IUt's really not too big of a deal. Most people wont attach things- they put the picture in the body of the post using the image icon. I have seen plenty and posted my own even though I haven't reached 150.

         

        I call the teal "peacock" because the designer of my bridesmaid dress calls the color peacock- although it has confused some of the bridesmaids haha. We are going with a palette of blues as our color scheme- aqua, navy, and peacock. Recently Davids bridal posted a picture with all three saying it was the trend this year. I was like "hey now don't give away my ideas" haha.


        Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

          oh ok. I thought the 150 posts was some thing i didn't know about because sometimes my posts aren't added right away and I get a comment box saying they need to be reviewed before posting since I'm new.

           

          I didn't think of "peacock" it makes me think of turquoise...I guess its sort of a turquoise, but darker? LOL. I like the blue palette. I wanted blue or pink and of course blue won since my FI doesn't want anything pink...he's lucky blue is my other favorite color! What do your bridesmaid dresses look like? I haven't started dress shopping, but I think I should get on it soon as I was told it could take a few months to get bridesmaid and wedding dress? I was just trying to hold off as long as possible. Still trying to lose this baby weight :/

              I posted my dresses in the bridesmaid thread  but I'll post here too. I picked out my dress in April because it was being custom made but they worked on quicker than they said and it was ready in August- Initially they told me 9 months to make it! So its sitting in a vault. Bridemaids dresses- it depends- if you buy off the rack you can get them with minimal time but if you want a particular one you'll need time. I went bridesmaids looking a few weeks ago but my bridesmaids want to lose weight before committing to a dress so we will resume shopping in February- our wedding is in July- I think thats enough time.

               

              This is the girls dress: 

               

               

               

               

              And here is my color scheme- 

               

               

              My fiances suit is a dark gray with blue.

                    my colors are based on the Dessy color palate and also my favorite colored orchids.  Basically it comes down to being purple and orange :)   Dessy calls them "persian plum" and "tangerine

                    "
