You look gorgeous @!! 

I can relate with the whole weight loss journey. I was once a lot bigger then I am now. When I was trying on dresses I was pulling size 18 and 20. The consultant was getting so frustrated because they were gigantic. She didnt understand that that is what I am use to being in. Any way, the dress I finally bought is a size 14!!  

I believe in you! You can do this!!

Awww you are so sweet and thank you for the encouragement!    Congrats on the size 14!  I can totally relate.  The worst was when I went to Kleinfelds and I felt like the consultant was forcing some designs that just weren't for me and mostly because that's what was available in my size.  "thanks".

 

I'm super motivated and even more because I know come April 28th my dress is in and it better look amazing!  haha

I have four months left til the wedding and I think that it's more than enough time to pull off a success story! ;)

@ 4 months is plenty of time! Even if you only lost 1 pound a week, that is 16 pounds lost before your wedding!

I had a productive week!  I have purchased my bridesmaid gifts!  Our dresses are coral and I bought them these wristlets.  They will match the dress so nice.  I also got them a little bowtie bracelet in gold.  I still have to design their jewellery but that will be later on

These are my shoes for the ceremony and I will have a little purse to keep my vows and tissue in. 

 

The fans are going to be placed on each chair for our guests to cool themselves off.

I treated myself to a little passport holder!  How cute is it!??  

One of my bridesmaids had vows books ordered for myself and the FI.  They are so cute.  It fits perfectly in my little purse.  

Ahh getting very excited!

@@AyeWatSoon So happy to hear that the board is helping you out!  For me it was a reality check that a lot of things needed to be dealt with but in about a week or so we were able to really work through our list so it does feel great to see some of the stickies come off.  It also means that both myself and my fiancé are equally involved and active at working through these tasks.  I love it. 

 

@TinkerSofi  We have tested them out and they are definitely waterproof. We love that they are invisible.   I'm envisioning some yummy strawberry daqueries filling up the cups to add some colour! :)

 

@Calgarybride2015  as always, so helpful.  Thank you for the packing tips.  I hadn't thought that far ahead yet.  How many did you take with you? Did they take up an entire luggage?    Yes - it was definitely a Begonia colour swatch from David's bridal.  We went a whole other route with our wedding colours!   

Wedding colours - up next ! 

 

That's funny. I have the Begonia swatch too! lol I wanted Coral Reef but my daughter in law wants the pink so I said ok.

I have been a little m.i.a with my planning thread.  I had a really tough weekend.  I think like most brides on this forum you find that at some point or another you encounter a bit of disappointment.  I posted on a different thread about a negative experience I had with someone in our bridal party.  (someone who is now no longer attending and no longer a friend.).

 

I spoke about focusing on gratitude and to not let someone else's negative feelings towards life, or my wedding affect my FI and I.

 

I decided to focus on all our guests that are making the effort to support us and send us text messages saying how excited they are, our guests that are counting down with us on, our guests that have been with us from the start.

 

So I designed this really cool thank you card for our reception.  One will be placed on each dinner plate.  We also will have some maracas at each place setting with a little tag.  I don't have pics of those yet.

 

So my advice to anyone feeling frustrated with the planning process, because it will definitely happen, practice gratitude and you will start reshaping the way you think and suddenly be so happy because you will realize how much there is to be grateful for!  :)

    • 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 :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
