  • Wedding: October 2010

48 more days to go.  I have a countdown here at work and now, it is starting to panic me.  I still have to secure flowers and then pay the balance of my other wedding stuff. We are marrying in Hawaii so all this had to be planned from the mainland which has been difficult at times. Since this is a destination wedding, our invites went out in late July.

@CaraMia10: I hope so! They ordered it to size (I’m a shorty) so hopefully the alterations will be minimal.

@sweetredthing: I had to get a 2nd dress and it had to be ordered. I had a great first dress, perfect for the beach wedding I am having.  I got pregnant, knew I could not wear that dress because I would have been too far along and ordered the 2nd dress which will show up 2 weeks before the wedding in a pregnant womans size. I had a miscarriage, now I have 2 dresses that essentially won’t fit. The 2nd one that is still not here can be obviously altered to make it smaller to fit me but it is not the style I wanted but it would have been perfect for a pregnant bride. The first dress I don’t have time to “get into” and selling (still no buyer.) So I am in a similar boat you are, just take deep breaths, it will work out.

I have quite a bit that still needs to be done.  And then when I think something is crossed off the list, sometimes it sneaks back on.  The caterers had a cake guy, but suddenly he’s unavailable (we hadn’t signed the contract yet so I can’t really be upset), so now cake is back on the todo list. 

Yesterday the hotel calls saying they need our contract faxed back or they won’t be able to hold any hotel rooms.  We sent that to them a few weeks ago, and found the email where we sent it…couldn’t get ahold of them yesterday.  Hopefully that will all get straightened out soon! 

My response cards are slowly but surely coming in.  My MOH-her kids were the ring bear and flower girl, but she won’t be able to bring them afterall.  It’s an out of town wedding and since I asked them her husband was promoted and is being given new orders (Navy), and they start October 15th, so driving everyone to the wedding won’t work (and plane fare really adds up).  I am not upset, I just feel bad for the kids since they’ve been looking forward to it. 

This weekend I HAVE to finish my tiara so that my veil can be decided…at least according to my mom.  😉  I’d be perfectly content to keep playing with the beads and rhinestones and vintage pins/necklaces right up until the last minute. 

I know some of this stuff should have been done already, but we got engaged on July 6th and decided a week later to switch from January ’11 to October ’10 and change locations.  My grandparents can’t really travel anymore so we decided to elope in their state…of course it went from elopment to destination wedding pretty quickly……

@alohabride

I’m so sorry to hear about the miscarriage.
