@LeighC

I love your thread so far! Its so good and you are so on the ball with all your planning! Way ahead of schedule which will make this whole process a breeze for you. I'm also hoping if I get everything done early then leading up to the wedding will be stress free.

 

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR DRESS!!!! It looks so amazing on you. You really picked the perfect dress for you. Its going to look so good on the beach and flowy in the sun with the tropical breeze! I love it!

@@TinkerSofi @@yycbride2016  Thanks you!!  I must admit that I still have second thoughts about the dress sometimes.  Shouldn't I love it on the hanger?  but it really does have everything I was looking for, and I think once I see it with the hair, and shoes and makeup, I won't be able to imagine wearing anything else.

 

As an aside, the frankenstein dress I was originally considering was from Truvelle, a canadian designer.  If anyone is still looking for a dress, her stuff is beautifully simple, light, and flattering.  Dear god, so flattering.

 

 

 

Speaking of the "bridal look"....am I crazy to think about spending $150+ on a pair of sandals???

I kind of love them.  

 

I realize a lot of you are from Canada and might have different options, but where are you finding your shoes?

@@LeighC I get having the second thoughts on the dress. I am, too. I have a short dress, which is what I want, it's just the style that is not what I had in mind. But I LOVE your dress. If I wasn't sticking with short, I would be looking for something like yours. 

 

As for the sandals, yikes, that is pricey. But they are very pretty and look very high quality. I got my shoes from David's, but I wanted heels (wedges). Not sure what they have for sandals, if anything. But I thought their prices were reasonable.

@@LeighC I wouldn't worry about your dress at all. It seriously looks stunning on you. I had the opposite reaction to a dress last weekend. I loved it on the hanger and thought omg this will be the one (it had a detachable tulle skirl and a blingy belt and the whole under dress was lace). I thought omg this is perfect! Put it on and absolutely hated it. No one liked it haha. And I wouldn't worry. My mum and I will go shopping and she always gives me weird looks when i see things to try on and she's like well thats strange and then I put it on and we love it. So as long as you love the way you look and feel in that dress then nothing else matters.

 

Those shoes are gorgeous. I'm a little suprirsed that they cost $150! I think you could find something that looks super similar for cheaper. Do you have a Le Chateau? They have some amazing bridal shoes in there. I am going to get these sparkly wedges I found there last weekend. Or what about Payless shoes? They ahve very similar shoes to those ones i'm pretty sure and they usually have really good prices. Personally I'd look in local stores before ordering online. What if they aren't comfortable?! Ah!

Spring and Aldo also are other suggestions to try. I agree with @@yycbride2016 that they seem pretty pricey!

I've seen a few ladies on here over the last couple of years doing the Badgley Mischka's so I can't really say yours are pricey compared to them but yeah... lol they're pricey. But they are definitely super cute!! I love the blue sole!

@@LeighC I love your planning thread! And I agree with everyone, your dress is gorgeous. I know you're second guessing it a bit but I think it's beautiful on you.

 

As for your sandals, I think they're really beautiful too and match perfectly with your dress. They're dressy and perfect for a destination wedding. Being from Canada, the price was converted to Canadian dollars and they came up to $196! Lol so $150 for you is a steal compared to what we'd pay for in our dollars

 

Like @@acw271011 said, a lot of brides have been buying Badgley Mischka, including me I love shoes so they were important to me. I found them on sale at 6pm.com and they shipped them on time. Try looking there because they have a lot of designer shoes. If you like the blue so,es, they also carry Blue by Betsey Jonhson.

@@Wafflesmom ooooh.  I forgot about 6pm!!  I'll have to check it out.  It's probably one of those things where if I feel the need to ask if it's too much, it probably is :)

 

I'm annoyed right now because I have so many decor ideas I want to get down before I forget them......but, as it is wont to do, work really got in the way this week, and it's going to end up being a long post that will take some time and energy.   Why can't they just give me my paycheck and let me spend all day on this site???  :)

@@acw271011 I know huh? I'm a size 5 and it was the only site I could find badgley mischka in my size, and on sale too! If you see shoes you like, wait until around the 4th of July. I'm sure they'll have some sales then. I'll pm you in case I get a promo code!

 

@@LeighC I don't mind spending a lot for shoes, especially for my wedding. I just wouldn't have expected that much for sandals from etsy! And I agree about just getting paid to spend all day on this site. I just moved into a new office, I may have to close the door to wedding plan while at work lol

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
