You look gorgeous @veryvalero!! 

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!!

@MissJen3

 

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! ;)

@veryvalero 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 fiancĂ© 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 said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    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!  :)
