Hey Decembeeess! I need a kickin in the ars! I feel like I’m frozen! And I can list a zillion things to do…but I’m still not moving.
I tried on my dress since it’s first arrival and I was about 25lbs heavier. Well I tried it on anticipating it might not squeeze as much as I’d like but it’d be do’able; its a corset. WRONG! With a beautiful wreck of emotions going through my head while putting on the gown, I was so proud of myself, yet so upset that my work needed WORK! It didn’t squeeze anything, I could stick about 2-3 hands down the back of my dress with it fully squeezed. So after pushing my personal goal wedding dress budget + paying the “plus size fee”, I now have to take the inseam ($150), French Bustle (5; $20/bustle) and Steaming ($100)!! WTH!!!! I was instantly red, and I know people were saying nice things to make me feel better but all I heard was CHA-CHING! And what the heck are you going to charge me steaming for when your going to throw it back in the dam bag!? (My gown is tafetta) So im stressing; mom is trying to make me feel better, but time is’a tickin, and well you ladies can relate. Im so thankful that you ladies can. How do we make this happen!? Where does this will power come from?!
Favor supplies are done; well except a ‘Thank You’ tag.
Debating on doing a Program, our ceremony/reception is a total of 4hrs.
Groom needs to decide on his dam suit; it’s stressing me out.
Bridesmaids have all their gowns and are getting alterations and red shoes. Deciding on hair style for them.
Flower Girl Hair? Im thinking Red Shoes as well; just because I think little girls can get away with wearing FUN and VIBRANT colors. Dresses are Teal and Shoes will be Red patent or Red Glitter? Suggestions?
Oh ya…still need to decide on my bouquets. Im not really a flower girl so I just cant seem to put it at the top of my list of to do’s lol. But I dont know what florals will compliment Poinsettias since that will be the staging florals.
HA! And you know those things….oh ya VOWS! …We had some troubles with our previous officiant, and luckily my cousin asked/offered to do it for us! **PHEW** But i know its last notice and he’s in law school with a full schedule, but we do want something simple/sweet and romantiful!
Crack open a bottle of wine ladies and get those lists out, dont forget those comfy pants and good tunes; and we’ll FINISH it!!!
Thanks for letting me vent!
Best of Luck!!! Always thinking of my fellow December Brides! xo
