Hey!

I do believe it takes them a long time, especially to take their time and do it right. Trust me I went through all those emotions and more!!! Normal :) but you are in good hands.

Not yet! End of may. I realized the other day I am a bit past the catholic school. There is another T intersection just past the school I am at!

it's totally the control freak in me, as if I could do it better, ha! yeah right... :P. Now to wait until June, my appointment is right after I come back from Vegas so we'll see how that works out... :S. I'm not the type to change weight too much but what if haha. I'm guessing since it's not an AI and there's a lot of walking involved, if anything i'll lose a bit of weight. 

 

Ohh ok, so you might be about a block away from my house, probably close to the little alley that I have to go through to take the bus haha :) 

 

@Wafflesmom I tried my dress on with the chicken cutlets yesterday. I think I finally put them on where it created that cleavage in the middle. It looks great and they're really comfortable. I guess it's a happy medium between not wearing anything and putting sewn in cups which I didn't really like. If I lift my arms and arch my back you can kind of see them, but it's better than seeing the actual thing haha. I'll see what happens on the next appointment, maybe they can do something about that.

I went on Saturday for my second fitting and still have anxiety a few days later - seeing the lace trim cut off my dress and the scissors in her hand FREAKED ME OUT! The only alterations I even need are hemming, bustle, and strap-shortening but I still felt so uneasy seeing my beautiful (expensive) dress cut. Rationally, I'm sure it will be completely fine, but I'm a worrier so I guess I'll just be worrying until I get it back!

 


For some reason now I'm more stressed about the dress than I was before. I started thinking, what if they do something wrong, what if they cut it more than they should? I know I'm just being paranoid and I should trust the experts.

I am the most worried about the bodice and it not being lose enough. It's not that tight, so I think letting it out will be ok, but now I keep wondering if I made the right choice instead of putting the corset, again worrier over here too. The corset would have given me more peace of mind but I guess if plenty of girls get their zipper done up in Mexico why can't I right? I'm happy that I got the dress to even close when I compare to when I first got it but I honestly don't think I can do much more. I would have to drop a couple of body fat percentage points, which would mean I need to cut ALL junk food, sugar and carbs. I know it's an unrealistic goal at this point and it would add a lot of unnecessary pressure. 

 

I love the bustle that they're doing. The actual skirt of the dress doesn't have more than a sweep train, so it's only the tulle skirt that they have to bustle and it looked gorgeous, very seamless, which is what I wanted :)

I'm so glad the chicken cutlets worked out! They are super comfy but they still show? Can you manipulate them so they're positioned differently? Maybe stick them lower? Your cleavage may look funny though

Well. after having a coffee way too late in the day I have too much energy so I might as well put it to good use and do some late night wedding planning :D

 

The bridesmaid dresses came in! Yay! I am in love with the color, they really couldn't have turned out better. Silly me, I was too excited and didn't take a picture of my actual bridesmaids wearing the dresses so you're going to have to put up with me trying on one haha. I have the one for my Argentina MOH, so I took a picture to send to her. Please forgive my silly face.

I really can't pull off this dress as well as my bridesmaids can, it's way too long for me and the straps are a bit long, but it's better than nothing :). What I love about this dress is that it fits pretty much anyone and it needs very little alterations. Juan's sister only needs her straps shortened a bit, but otherwise they fit like a dream. That means I can also relax about the dress not fitting my one MOH across the world. It will look great. It's very flowy, but only the top layer, the actual skirt underneath has more structure, which is great for staying put even if it's windy ;)

 

I finally got around to cutting the signs and putting them in the frames. I also owed you guys a picture of the back of my guestbook cards so here it is:

Finally, worked on the tags for the fans. I decided to add some stamps to the back so they wouldn't be so bland. I understand no one will likely even care about this but I thought it added a nice little touch. I made 3 different designs with the stamps I had from my invitations :)

The next goal this week is to work on the photobooth. I have already picked the props I'll be using, so it's just a matter of ordering them and printing them out :). Then the most important part, figuring out how the whole thing will work out logistically. 

 

PS: OMG 3 months on the dot away!! I can finally start the actual countdown :P

@TinkerSofi everything looks amazing!!! Your signs and tags all look great! 

 

The bridesmaid dress looks beautiful! I thought of you today when I was out shopping with my MOH. We were in a store (Express I think) and saw a dress in your exact colour! I picked it up thinking "this is perfect" and then realizing "wait a minute, this isn't my colour" lol! I just got excited seeing a dress in your colour…I know how hard it's been to match to the memorable moments collection. Your bridesmaid dress actually looks really similar to the one I saw today.  :)

Ok so I had to check out the dress online haha I was curious. It's very pretty! of course the second you buy something else, whatever you were hoping for all along comes around. I shopped for a while for a dress in that color, even if it wasn't a "bridesmaid" dress, but since nothing came around we went this route. You're right though, it is a hard color to come by so I didn't want to put it off until the last minute because I didn't know if we'd be able to find something at a store.
