@veryvalentine @perianjay

 

Thanks for the feedback. @veryvalentine you make a good point in that I'll be able to see your photos soon (so soon!!!!). Our wedding isn't for 11 months, so I have lots of time. 

 

I don't think either of my girls will need a plus size. But being busty myself, I hate the look when it's "all boob" so I just want to make sure that doesn't happen. And also since the material is stretchy, I don't want it to cling to the wrong places. I'm not big, but I'm also not the skinniest girl in the world, and one of my BMs is a bit larger than me. One thing I really hate and that makes me self-conscious is something that shows off the lumps & bumps around my middle, if you know what I mean.  :P I don't want her to end up in that boat either. 

 

Maybe a good idea to order one for me like I think you both did. If I like it then, I can order the other two. Will add a bit to my shipping costs, but whatever.

One month from today we will be arriving at the hotel and checking in!  Crazy!

 

So I thought we had all our guests finalized but as it turns out 4 decided to book today and we are still looking at another 4 pending.  ahhhh!!

I wonder if this is normal.  I tried to get my number for the OOT bags but honestly at this point some of them will be getting a more toned down version of it.  I can't keep up.  

 

I finished my bridesmaid jewellery and I'm so excited.  I'm going for a gold and cream look.

The thing is that they are contacting the travel agent and the travel agent is just letting us know who has been booking.

She probably wouldn't stop accepting new reservations as it's good for her business!  ha  The good news is that our hotel is practically sold out!   :)

Good for her business, but not good for your planning, budget, seating arrangements, etc.!!!   At some point you have to say no more :)  We had people 3 days before we left trying to come -- ummm no? hahah!

@veryvalentine Did you make that jewellery? It's gorgeous. Maybe you need to start your own Etsy shop, too  ;)

I'm loving what you did for the bridesmaids. Now it makes the pendants I got for mine seem blah in comparison haha. I'm sure they're going to love it and wear it many many times :)

 

I agree that you should give people a deadline, even to your TA saying that you just can't accept any more people because you need to finalize your planning. Is your resort still accepting changes?

@TinkerSofi 

 

We can actually pay for changes when we arrive.  Or that's what we understand.  I can't imagine the hotel turning us away from upgrades or changes that result in more money for them.

 

I'm glad you lilke the jewels...I felt the pressure to design something special.  Some girls will wear statement necklaces and other girls will wear statement earrings depending on they wear the dress ;)
