Aww don't worry! I have faith that everything is going to work out for you. I can see the type of person you are from your thread and I know you're going to have a beautiful wedding regardless of these small little hiccups. You put your heart into everything you do. Stay away from those calories - you can do it!! You have done such an amazing job with your weight loss.. keep it up! I can't wait to see what a stunning bride you will make.

Yep - we leave for Jamaica in 29 days! It still feels very surreal - very hard to picture the whole thing coming together - so it is hard to be excited. I have moments of pure panic, moments of disbelief (I'm going to be a WIFE! Whoa), moments of excitement, and moments of sadness that the whole thing will be over before we know it (not the planning part - I'm totally over that, but the vacation with our friends/family part). It really is a once in a lifetime thing!

 

To be honest, my fiance's to-do list is longer than mine right now, which is about right but makes me nervous at the same time. He hasn't had many tasks up until now :) The music is his main domain and also planning the excursion. His ring. He needs to review/edit/approve the ceremony script I wrote. I also asked him to write the letter for our welcome bags. He sent off all our notarized paperwork to the wedding coordinators today to apply for our marriage license (we're getting legally married in Jamaica).

 

On my to-do list are place cards for welcome dinner and reception, all final vendor payments/coordination and other document organization, itinerary for welcome bags. I have an alterations appointment tomorrow and I'm hoping it is perfect and no other alterations are needed. We both need to put together our picture "must have" list for the photographer.

 

My sister and my niece are handling my guest book for me. My niece is home from college so she is also going to assemble the hangover kits for the gift bags for me. Outsourcing!

 

And, of course, PACKING and all my pre-trip beauty appointments :) I'm sure I'm forgetting a million little things too...

 

@beckys98  Get it together people is right!!! 

 

That's crazy that our weddings are so close.  OUr wedding is the 20th of june but we leave the 14th...so I literally have a month and a few days.  it's insane.  I can't even wrap my head around it. 

 

I think I'm just going to move forward and stop asking.  At this point if they really want to come they will find us and if not, then I'm sure they just don't know how to break it to us and honestly, at this point, I don't even care.

 

It's crazy that the groom's mom hasn't booked.  Had she let you know that there were some payment issues you could have put money aside slowly...but noooooo.  lol all last minute.  I need a drink but I'm trying to stay away from the calories .... :blink:

Oh my goodness @perianjay  !  Is it normal that I totally cried after reading your post.  You are so kind.  I think that as one gets close to the 1 month mark things get so much more heightened.  Keep up your amazing planning because if I was as prepared as you are right now, I would probably feel a bit more relaxed. 

 

I'm gonna tackle my to do list this weekend and post pictures of all the things we've accomplished to hold myself accountable ! :)

@veryvalentine aww thanks!! I really mean it though. I can tell you're going to have an amazing wedding. Don't worry.. I get emotional over everything. I'm so scared for the wedding haha. I was at brunch with my MOH a few weeks ago and I started getting teary eyed.. she's like WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? ARE YOU PREGNANT?!?! hahaha

I know, when we bought our house about 9 months before the wedding I told some friends I have something to tell you. And when I met up with them they said their guess was I was either pregnant or we had bought a house lol. I was like pregnant right now would be really really bad! Especially because I'd have a Baby a few weeks old or I couldn't travel for the wedding haha.

@veryvalentine

 

I was wondering about your BM dresses (sorry if I have missed an update). If I followed your thread correctly, you ordered one from Daint Yard to give it a try and then ended up ordering more for all of your BMs. Have you received the other dresses yet? I'm wondering how they all turned out and how they look on your BMs. I'm thinking of these or something similar, but my BMs are pretty busty, and one is a bit curvier as well. I'm just wondering how they might work for them. Will they cling too much? Will they be modest enough? etc.

Hi @vancouverpetunia

 

I did order my BM dresses from Daint Yard!  I was initially going to do my dresses from Henkaa.com but learned from a fellow forum friend @perianjay that the dresses were more affordable here.  I ordered a dress as a sample and liked.

 

I have 7 bridesmaids and 3 are petite and the rest are busty.  The Daint Yard has the option of ordering plus size dresses too.  waist size from 37" to 53".  I think the dresses looked great.  The material is a bit thinner compared to the other option i was looking at but the other option was also $169 compared to this awesome price of $60.   They all examined and tried on the sample dress and were happy to go forward with it.  

 

If you do go with them, give yourself some time to order them as the dresses are coming from Singapore and take at least 3 weeks to arrive in the mail.  

 

Let me know if you have any other questions :) 

I'm getting married in a month so you'll see my bm pics soon enough :)

@veryvalentine I have to agree, they are a bit thinner than the henkaa dresses, but still so worth it for the price. My girls were all happy with the dress and they had a lot of fun trying different styles. I love that it gives your BM's a chance to wear it how they want and have their own style with it. @vancouverpetunia definitely recommend these style dresses. Like @veryvalentine said, you have the option of ordering plus size as well. My one BM wears a size 10 dress and the regular sizing fit her nicely. It's quite stretchy which is nice :)
