@acw271011 I'm so sorry :( My heart just sunk when I read that. I know how much you were looking forward to your son being there and it's a shame that all of that occured this close to you leaving. I know that you will still have an amazing trip and celebrate the love that you and Doug have. Please keep your chin up because I know that once you get there the worries are going to slip away. I think we all have had some disappointment along the way so to some degree so I understand how much this does hurt. When I read your story about your son, it reminds me SO much of my brother it's not even funny. 

I wish there was more that I could say to try to make it better.

Always here to support you and try my best to cheer you up in times like these. You always have your BDW girls - we will be there in spirit. xox

Ann, I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through this so close to your day. Unfortunately we can't control other people's personalities or actions but at times like these, I wish we could. I hate the recurring theme of how we've all been hurt based on other people's decisions or actions (or in your case, lack of action). Like @snswedding2016 said, in the end it's about you and Doug. By this time next week, you two will be renewing your vows and recognizing the love you have for each other. You two have been through so much, yet you've remained together and supporting one another. We're here for you if you need anything xoxo

omg @acw271011 my heart just broke for you reading that.  I am soooo sorry!  I just want to give you a gigantic hug!

 

I know how excited you were to see your son that week, and I don't blame you for not wanting to go see him after.  I am so sorry this happened to you so close to your big day. But like the other ladies have said, this is about you and Doug in the end, celebrating your love and all that you have been through together that make you such an incredible couple.  I promise it will still be as beautiful and magical as you envisioned and all your hard work and planning will pay off!

 

We are all here for you!  xoxoxo

@ace271011 I've been so MIA lately, so I apologize as I play catch up. Your dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you! I can't wait to see pictures of it on the day.
I absolutely love the ring box! It's so adorable! and the shoes too! They will look stunning with you dress. In fact everything you've put together looks awesome. You've put in so much hard work and it really shows! I think the big day will go off without a hitch!

I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I know you were really excited to see him after so long. It seems so silly that he couldn't get his documents in order when he's known about it all for so long already. I'm sorry you have to deal with all this so close to your trip. Just relax, breathe deeply and enjoy your week. You will have fun regardless. What matters is you and Doug are together on the day and happy!

Can't wait to hear about the trip!!

Well I picked up my dress last night. I'm really happy with it. She sparkled up the straps and added lace cutouts to hide the bustle clips. Surprisingly it's a single layer of satin, no crinoline, no tulle, nothing. But it took 5 clips to put the bustle in place. Doug also picked up his suit last night. Wow the turquoise looks really nice with the Grey. It would have been so nice to have my son there too in his grey and pink but whatever. I have my Skype call at lunch time today to finish up last details. Web added photo and video time since my son was going to be with us, just to get some nice family shots but now I think it makes sense to cut the time. I can't see needing 6 hours of photo time now and 3 hours of video. I can't believe we leave in 2 days. I can't wait to get away for a week and just leave everything behind.

I have photos of my dress but can't upload from my phone. Not sure why but I'll post a couple in Ina little while.


Playing catchup here myself too. Thank you ladies for all the support. You all really are wonderful, sweet young women and I wish nothing but good things for all of you as you move forward with your lives and this exciting new chapter of it. I was so looking forward to having my son with us but for whatever reason it isn't to be. Yes - with everything we've been through I really wonder about the angel on my shoulder sometimes and why things are the way they are. But it is what it is. Our anniversary will be a little bittersweet with Ryan not being there but you are all right - it's about Doug and I and the fact that we get to continue our lives together. We're very nearly didn't get that chance. Thank you again for reminding me that it's what's important. I know you've all been through worse things with your guests so I need to count myself lucky!

Everything looks fantastic. As per usual :)

Where did you get those bags from? They are the perfect size I think!

Love you went for the necklace with the off set broach. You know how much I love that style :)

Love the hanger too. Pack it well between something or leave it in the box it came in as they bend out of shape very easily.

Good luck on the jobs and I hope you hear soon. I had an interview last week myself :) keep us posted.

Hey Kim. The bags are Gemline totes that I ordered through Sassy. Deal Rack also does them but I found Sassy to be cheaper. I think they were $3.46 per so since I only needed a few I think the total was around $30 with tax and shipping. I got 8 and had them shipped to my US address. Shipping was next to nothing.

 

Question - where do I get that 2 sided tape to hold the necklace in place? I have one strap on my dress that still slips a bit so the seamstress suggested the 2 sided since we're out of time for altering.

Hey!
I got mine at La Vien Rose. Do you have one close by? I would assume you could get it at an intimates store. (La senza, VS, etc). I'm sure other places sell it but this would probably be the easiest store to pin point so as to note waste time.

Gorgeous!!!
For some reason in my mind I had envisioned a spaghetti strap but love what you've done here so much more. It's beautiful.
