@cruisebride2016  I'm sorry I haven't been on your thread for a couple of months. I've followed a couple of the posts but haven't been able to "be here".

 

You're very close now and it looks like you have everything well in hand. I absolutely LOVE your flowers!!! That was the design I wanted initially for mine last October but in the end i opted to add some pink to it. Yours turned out absolutely gorgeous!!!

 

I love your cake topper!! It's so unique!! Happily you got it in time and it's going to be perfect!! Good luck with your final fitting tomorrow. I hope you post a photo of your dress!

 

My husband and I have cruised with Carnival a couple of times and really loved it. My in-laws cruise with Holland America all the time and are actually leaving on an inaugural cruise from Holland next month for about 30 days. They finish in Rome I think.

 

Your shower and bachelorette looked like a lot of fun! I've heard of the paint nights. Sadly no amount of wine would make me any better at drawing a straight line so it's highly unlikely anything I paint, even under the influence, would remotely resemble whatever they it's meant to be! Your group did an awesome job! All the paintings looked exactly like what they were supposed to!!  I love your guest book idea! That's going to be a great keepsake after your wedding!

 

Again my apologies for not popping in but keep the details coming. The threads are so helpful for future brides!

Wow, this was a drama filled weekend,  but ended well.  I hadn't heard from my wedding coordinator or makeup artist/hairstylist in over a week even though I sent multiple emails and called.  I finally got a response from the makeup artist/hairstylist on Saturday. On Sunday,  I posted on the wedding coordinators Facebook page asking if they were having email problems.  Almost instantly, I got a response! We exchanged multiple emails yesterday, so I feel everything is coming together!

As I mentioned before, I was also having dress drama. I went back yesterday and there was STILL an issue with the strap. The head seamstress had to undo and repin one portion. Since it would be quick, I waited there for them to fix it. Tried the dress on one more time (and it isn't easy to get into) and was happy with the results! My dress is finally in my house!

Considering I am now into the single digits until my wedding...9 days...and we leave in only 4 days, it feels great to actually get that checked off the to do list! It ended up working out OK to need to go back because a friend was available to come practice tying the corset and doing the bustle :) Advice to brides, if you are doing more than standard alterations, start early, even if the salon says you don't need to. I had planned to start about 2 months before, but they said it would be better to wait until 1 month in case my weight changed. Since I have a corset, my weight fluctuating would not be an issue and instead I was down to the wire hoping they would get it completed in time!

Hopefully, the rest of this week is stress and drama free!

In the preview, looks like the pictures will end up being sideways. Not sure how to turn them. Sorry!

Your wedding will be here before you know it. Can't wait to hear all about it :)
I agree re alterations - mine took darn near 3 months.

Only 1 week until wedding day!

Yesterday was my last day of work. My coworkers decorated my car, then blinged me out and made me wear it all day :)

Today was a productive and unstressful day. I started the day with a workout, then my final tan. Next, I got my mani/pedi for the wedding. Then, I came home and my fiance and I have been working through our checklist.

Thank you to the ladies who suggested 2 full days off prior to the trip! I would have been overly stressed with less time off.

@cruisebride2016  Oh I love your dress! It's gorgeous and really looks beautiful on you. I really like the straps. That's what I wanted with my dress last October and I settled for something less than I wanted. She used lace instead of the satin the way I asked. They ended up stretching out and by the end of our renewal ceremony they were gapping in several places. I wasn't happy with them at all. Yours are perfect!! I love the little bit of bling across the top.

 

That's so nice of your coworkers to do that for you! And your e-ring is stunning!!!!!  So what day do you actually sail? It's getting so close. My goodness - 4 April brides! Hopefully we'll have a ton of photos posted over the next few weeks!!

@ashhtayy Thank you!

@acw271011 After all the visits, I am happy with the straps! The material was actually a random piece they found. Initially, I thought we would use extra from when we hemmed the bottom. But, they ended up creating more gathers and lifting it up, so there was no cutting or material. We fly to Florida tomorrow, our guests arrive Saturday, then the cruise leaves Sunday :) Can't believe my countdown for the trip is in hours now and not days.
