  • hahahaha Sara! I have so many dresses, too, and never wear them. Maybe since the dresses are for such a special occassion you'll wear them :)

  • I confess that I am starting to HATE my job, I think I need to take up a new profession as a kept woman

    WinoGrrl- I totally understand what you are saying.  I'm buying almost nothing but beach dresses and can't stop.

     

  • I'm not sure what to confess today...

    The biggest one is I'm kind of glad my mom tried to start drama about the wedding. I've cut communications with her this week to let my emotions simmer... I was getting really tired of talking wedding/Hawaii stuff ALL.the.time :-/

    My happy confession is that I think it finally sunk in with FI that we HAVE to start discussing wedding stuff more than one day/week because there's 9 weeks until we leave!! This stuff cannot be done last minute. I'm already starting to lose sleep over this.

    <div>Hmmm... my confessions seem a little contradictory, huh? <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-undecided.gif" border="0" alt="Undecided" title="Undecided" /> I guess the difference is, mom thinks this is a big group/family vacation, and I'm most excited to just concentrate on FI and I. Is that horrible?</div>

  • I confess that for whateve reason, I keep buying new shoes for ever little wedding occasion. I have a serious problem. I also confess that I keep adding new projects and things I should do for this wedding everytime I go on Pinterest. I think I need to cut myself off. 

    Finally, I confess that FI is finally talking about wedding plans more than once a week. I think he's finally starting to get that time is running out and we have decisions to make!

  • Seems to be a trend our FIs are realizing how close we all are. I confess that I have been losing sleep over money. I really want our beach gazebo decorated but can't really justify paying the 400 for tuelle and chair sashes but yet don't want to put anything on mu family/guests with decorating ourselves. I am also in dress buying mode. I really want a dress to go with my purple shoes but for our party back homt the tablecloths are black which would be the one dress color thatd go with purple shoes but I'd like to not look like my tablecloths lol Hope your mom will be able to give u guys your tme to enjoy your wedding and trip Kate! Sorry about your job Lissa I hope it gets better for you or you find something you like!

    I'm not sure how many chairs you are having but you can purchase sashes for a pretty good price at Linentablecloth.com. Here's a link to some purple sashes similar to the ones I purchased: http://www.linentablecloth.com/chair-covers-and-sashes/chair-cover-sashes/satin-sash-purple.html

     Also I believe the website shopwildthings.com also has some tulle and sashes on the site in the fabulous color of purple. 

    As far as coordination goes, you can try silver if you are worried about looking like your table cloths! You can also wear a lime green dress, or maybe a lavendar dress to go with your deeper purple shoes. And then there's always white...

    BTW, I LOVE that your shoes are purple. Mine is too! I'm obsessed with the color.

  • Oh I am starting to love purple!! I have looked at that website and considered getting them I just feel bad putting someone in charge of putting them on the chairs but 20 chairs is that bad maybe I can talk my mother into it ;) have your ordered them yet? I also wondered how well they would travel I'd probably just get organza ones to not worry about to many wrinkles in the satin.

    <div>Meg, I order 30 silver chair covers and 30 eggplant chair sashes in organza. I just ordered them two days ago when they had a 20% off and free shipping sale so I haven't gotten them as yet. But I will report back when I get them. The total of all of them was about $67 which is a steal since the resort was trying to charge me $4.00 per chair cover just to rent them. I figured I'd just spread the chair covers out in my family's suit case. </div><div>
    </div><div>Once I get some more money I'm thinking about buying three eggplant table cloths from them as well. </div>

  • Gotcha yes please let me know what you think of them!!

  • I have no confession, just wanted to chime in on the chair sashes. I bought ours from tableclothesfsctory.com and they were very inexpensive. I got organza and left them in the packages they came in until the day of the wedding. They still looked good after shipping them to my destination.

    I totally hear you! It is difficult for me to balance that this is our wedding (& honeymoon!) and not feel like I am 'ditching' my family. I think I am just relying on siblings to keep the folks entertained so my FI and I can have "our time".

    Oh, and my confession is that I keep buying too much of everything! I don't really need any more summer dresses or shoes or accessories for this or that, but I just can't seem to stop! And I feel like I have changed my mind about my hair accessories too many times even thought I already purchased a couple of pretty pricey hair clips (not wearing a veil). I also confess that I am probably driving my co-workers, family, friends, etc. crazy with how much I talk about the wedding.
