Wardrobe issues resolved! (Little long)

So I originally purchased my dress almost a year and a half ago.  When I had to cancel my first wedding date, I put it in my closet and didn't think much about it.  I tried it on for the first time on January 7 to see if it would need altered before my wedding on May 1.

The dress wouldn't zip.  I had apparently gained around 15 pounds in a little over a year. Embarassed  I buckled down and lost 11 pounds in 7 weeks.  I tried it on today and it zips!  It is a little tight across the midsection, but I am so happy to know that it at least zips.  I think if I lost another 5-8 pounds it will fit perfectly.  I am going to take it to have a bustle put on sometime this week, and then I'll post some pictures of it.

Also, today Luke got his wedding suit!  Men's Warehouse is having a 50% off sale and got a beautiful Calvin Klein black suit for $250.   SO happy today was a productive wedding day!  

 How was everyone else's weekend?

    Keep up the good work and congrats on the groom's suit. I think that was harder to find than my dress was, so I feel your pain!

    I did some heavy work on our slideshow which I'm using Animoto to create (http://animoto.com/?ref=iuowvahy). I also worked on our playlist since we're using an iPod in our suite.

    How did you decide to do your slideshow? Are you bringing in a dvd player or using your laptop?

    I talked to WC and the Vista Suite does not have a DVD player, but you can 1) pay like $150 to use one of the hotels, or 2) hook up your own. So I guess we are bringing our travel DVD player on the trip. Our WC (Carey) even said if we forget ours, she can let us borrow her personal DVD player.

    good to know! Thanks for the info. My fiance's family is flying in and ALWAYS has their dvd player, so maybe we can just use theirs. I still haven't decided if I want to take the time to make the slide show!

    I had my second dress fitting yesterday.  Debi at Fit for a Bride is making some major changes to my dress and I couldn't be happier.  She's amazing.

    Also had my make-up trial at the MAC Store and got candy for our favors at the M&Ms Store.  Had to brave traffic on the Strip, but it was worth it :)

    Congrats on the weight loss. You can get the last few off no problem. Having a wedding dress as motivation sure helps! I had a reality check when I tried on mine. I have +6 months though! Buckled down and got a personal trainer. I hope I can do it to! Its really hard to stay on track sometimes...  We have yet to get the tux booked...but I guess there is still more time! Congrats again though!

    Keep up the good work and you will be fine! and I have been working on the iPod music list...ugghh! It's fun but at the same time hard to make sure and have a good mix for all personalities...and I went shopping! I will try and get a pic up, but I found candles and hurricane vases for the table where the food will be on in the suite.

    ugh I haven't even started the playlist for my iPod. I guess I'm hoping it will magically do itself haha. BTW how many songs are you guys going to have?

    Well done with the weight loss.  Keep it up!

    I had my bridal shower yesterday and it was SO fun.  There were only a few of us there, but we had a great time.

    I continue to have nightmares (no more Loch Ness monster) about all the things that I need to get done in the next few days (13 to go). Apparently I wouldn't shut up last night so FI finally woke me up to see what I was talking about.

    Congrats on the weight loss!  I'm working on that but so far no such luck.

    I got to see my wedding band this weekend.  I absolutely love it.  We aren't picking it up until later this week so I'll post pictures when I get back.

    Having the FI book the limo this week and I'm actually heading down to Orlando for a few days.  Running a half marathon and taking a mini vacation from life.  :-)

    Lindsy - Thanks!  I worked with a trainer for four sessions to learn about the machines and weights in my gym.  I went around 4 days a week.  I also did weight watchers online. It took about 7 weeks to lose the weight.
