    I hope it all looks cohesive. All of Allusive's stuff looked like it flowed well together. I feel like I just went into a room and said I like that! and that! and that! and that! Make it work! We're going for relaxed and casual, with a bit of style and class.

    Awwwww thanks!! I've been really self conscioius about myself in that dress. I feel like I look like a beached whale. This is more how the skirt looked when I tried it on and I LOVED it this way more:



    I'm going to show this pic to my mom and see if she can make the skirt more like this.

    Thanks danser!! 
    I know once I tone up my arms and chest, it'll look better. And I thnk my bra was a little too tight, so the girls pushed up a little too high. 
    The best part about my dress being at my mom's house is I can go try it on whenever I want. 
    Jen, you're totally making me drool over your cake.

  • Thanks for the complements gals! I'm really starting to get excited recently. I can't believe it's only about 7 months out now...that just doesn't seem possible!!

    Audrewuh - I forgot we we're dress twins! I love what your did with the broach/flower on the waistband. It's so purdy! I've been thinking about doing something with that bow, but haven't figured out what yet. I want to crash YOUR wedding!!!

    [QUOTE]I want to read everyone's stuff, but I'm too excited to patiently read! WE BOOKED OUR HONEYMOON LAST NIGHT!!!! WE'RE GOING TO NYC AND BOSTON!!! IT'S HAPPENING!!!! I've been sooo freaking stressed out over whether or not we could afford a honeymoon, but it's happening!! We're doing it!! Flights, train, hotels, all booked!!  Tuxes also got chosen last night. FI is renting this beauty: And the GM are wearing these: We're going for our cake tasting on Tuesday. We're going for something along the lines of this: The BM's have ordered their dresses (all but one) and are as follows: MOH: BM A: BM C: BM K: And BM L: They're from Alfred Angelo in Cherry.  Once Elle finishes up invitations, we'll be ordering those, hopefully next week some time.  Oh, and latest pic from my dress fitting: And this is what is going to go on the waist line. You can kind of make it out in the pic above. This isn't the actual flower going under the broach. It will be a bright red.  I think that's all I've got. I've AWd my shoes, but I don't have any pics of them on this computer. They're super pretty.  Now to go read everyone else's! ETA: We have our wedding bands but I don't have pics of either. Those were on the old phone.  We also booked our DJ. You can check them out  here .  They're amazeballs. I jumped up and down when FI called to say we got them. And flowers are set-ish. My florist is amazing and is working with our super super super strict budget and making something similar to this for me: And something similar to these white ones for the girls: I'm stalled out on centerpieces, but I'm waiting for a shipment from Shoes to see what I can do with some things that I have.

    Everything else is picked out from bouquets, my dress, the BM dresses, where we are staying, ect. Though nothing is bought and paid for. We'll do all that in a year or so. Now, to just relax.

    The dress: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=A3660

    Allusive - I am crashing your wedding! It is going to be amazing!

    Rae - I think that if your friend is someone who is important enough to you that you would consider having him in your WP then it's worth discussing it with your FI further. I understand why it would be a little weird to invite an ex but it doesn't sound like there are romantic feelings on either end so I don't see why it should be a problem.

    We ARE dress twins!! I couldn't remember who it was! Yaaaay! I really was not a fan of that bow. I strongly dislike bows. But everything else about the dress was great. Now if I can just slim down the skirt a bit... Feel free to bounce ideas off of me. :) One of my friends wore our dress a year ago when she got married. 
    And please! Come crash away!

    Maybe its the saggy sample store dress.

    Did you say your ma was taking out some of the fluff? I imagine the new fabric is stiffer than the sample dress too.

    There are only two layers of crinoline under it. I may ask my mom to take out a layer still. I was thinking I was hallucinating when I originally bought the dress 8 months ago, but now that I'm not crazy and I've seen your picture, I know that it can hang that way. 
    And yes, the new fabric is much stiffer. I really want to see what it looks like with the crinoline pressed flat now... That will make a huge difference. I think I'll call my mom tonight. But now I know it's possible to look the way I want it to!
    Lily, thanks!! It's going to be one hell of a party. I'm excited to just drink and dance with my family and friends. And marry my best friend, but that's understood. 
    I'm sorry things didn't go well with your dad. Has your dad said anything to you about BF at all?

  • Everyone's planning seems to be going so well!  

    I love hearing about menu planning!  My dad used to own a catering business and I would help him with smaller jobs.  
    And I like to hear about the unique details that make your wedding different than every other wedding.  
  • Allusive and Audr- I am so crashing your weddings.  Everything looks so beautiful!

    Rae- I can see why your FI would be weirded out about it.  I think it depends on how much you really want him to be there.  Is it a hill to die on?
