Hey g

It should usually read both parents but my father passed away and his father is a useless drunk.....so we only listed our mothers. I haven't decided if I want to reword that page or not [/quote Hey girl: They look lovely! I can see what she means though. It's a little confusing the way it's written. I think instead of your moms names there it has to be you and your FI. Or Mrs & mrs so and so would like to request your presence at the wedding of ...

And then for my wedding I would like to be 150 or less (preferably 140) lol But I dont know if Ill see that number as I think i would look aneroxic. But time will tell! so right now im 14 lbs away from MY wedding goal for January! WHICH is dooable. Right now im focusing on toning, and gaining muscle mass so the weightloss part is a bit slower, but i did lose a lb this week! yay

 

I work alot at both jobs, so after next week I am no longer picking up hospital shifts, so that from August on I can focus on my workouts ( doing more cardio) I should easily be able to lose the last 10 lbs before my wedding, and the 4 lbs before my friends wedding August 24!

This thread is exactly what I need!  I went in to try on my wedding dress and it is a little too tight in the hips/butt/tummy.   I cried when I put it on as it bunches a little bit.  After trying it on again it stretched out and the girl explained that my hips/but was more of a 12 than a 10 which is the size my dress is.  So needless to say I need to lose 5-10lbs in 2 months which is when I need to decide if I want to alter or not.   So I am cutting out the booze and deserts and ramping up the veggies and lean proteins.   

I have never really tried to lose weight before I hope this is doable!

Well you are in the right place. we like to talk about everything in here, but we do always go back to how we are doing for the wek(weight loss wise) Im sure if you cut the booze (empty calories) and the deserts you will prob easily lose that. since I started losing weight like 2 years ago I cut out booze completely and ate better etc, (followed weight watchers) and lost 90 lbs total so far. My goal is another 4 before my friends wedding in august, and then another 10 by my wedding.

 

hard work and determination. You can do it :)

Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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 :)
