Very true, I thought about that when we were at the Clerk's office.  I should just ask them.  

I found the website very vague though and focused more on the requirements to obtain the license etc etc. 

It's probably written in an act.  @calgarybride2015   I'll find out!  ;)

 

I found the website so confusing haha so I prefer to get the info from people to clarify but yeah you would think that they mention that big no no somewhere!

@veryvalentine  Life after is super fun too!   I think I am almost over the wedding withdrawal/blues stage! ha!

So much fun things to talk about now  -- we aren't having kids, but buying a home and our honeymoon and such has been fun to plan and talk about!   

 

HAHAHAH!!!  vows for your feelings!   We are such women and they are such men, hey?   

 

Men seem to fly by the seat of their pants and we are more logical!  Even though they hate it, they will admit we keep things together!

Love everything and especially love how you are incorporating the papel picado as well. Will it be in white just like the picture? If so, LOVE it in white!

 

I can already picture how amazing everything is going to look and I really love the private reception space. It's gorgeous. Congrats on the inches lost!! I know I've said this before, but you really are such an inspiration. I need to get my butt in gear and when I read your story it really helps to inspire me as well.

they are so logical, but sometimes I need a bit of logic in my life. I'm too much of a dreamer. 

 

I can't remember what Juan said the other day when we were talking about what he'd say in his vows. I told him that I knew he didn't want to do vows but he insisted that we should because I wanted them. He said something ridiculous and I was just like, well we might as well not write anything if you're going to say that haha. It was also something so practical, no feelings, just bad hahah. 

 

ahaha @veryvalentine I went back and read your comment on the feelings hahah. The other day this comedian was saying that men and women are different because women have 100 things going on at once in our brains and men have 1 or none. So he said, it drives women crazy to know that men can actually be thinking about nothing, because there is no such thing in our dictionary. It was funny and true lol.

I cannot believe my time ticker reads 1 month and 2 weeks!!  What the France!!??

 

Updates:

 

The Dress

 

So I went for alterations yesterday AND MY DRESS IS NOW TOO BIG!!  What a debacle with this dress.  I paid $220 yesterday for them to shorten my dress since I'm only 5.4, and they are sewing my crinoline into the dress because even just being at the bridal store I was so hot wearing that extra layer of crinoline.  So right now my dress is too big in the bust area and the lower hip, upper hip and waist.  It's a corset dress and both ends of the dress are meeting which apparently you are supposed to show off the lace up so ya. 

 

So we've agreed to postpone the alterations for the size until May 26th- so I have 21 days to lose as much weight as I can and then I need to chill it because they will be sizing it.

 

It makes sense because all my clothes is too big right now.  I'm holding off on shopping for my resort clothes til the week before we leave.

@veryvalentine That's great news!!! haha.. I know that sounds weird.. because now it needs to be altered more, but seriously GOOD WORK!

You have been doing so well with your weight loss and you were so worried about the dress fitting right.. it ended up turning out so well. You kicked that dresses a$$ ;)

Thank you for always being so motivating.

Awww thanks!!  @perianjay  So sweet.

 

It's a little annoying that I will have to still pay $91 for alterations and another $60 for the bustle...it's literally like $400 in alterations.  I'm really happy that they are taking in the dress rather than taking it out.  It's less traumatic for me.  haha.

 

the nice thing is that they charge a flast rate of $91 so it doesn't matter how much they have to take in...so I can just run wild with the weight loss.  haha.

I mean it sucks that the dress is now too big, but that's always the nicer side of that problem ;). Congrats on all the achievement and weight loss. I can't wait to see it all altered! 

 

It's crazy how the last 3 months have gone by so quickly. It's even weirder that your ticker seems to be going faster than mine hahah (if that makes any sense :P ). A month is literally soo close! I'm getting really excited
