@College: I second that Congratulations!!!! I’ve just looked at your pictures on your facebook as well! They are amazing… My absolute favorite is the one of you and your girls just laughing…and one of them is lighting a candle in the background I think. It rocked… 🙂 And those sunset pics are amazing too.

Congrats again. What a beautiful day!

okay … just have to ask… 

is there any plus size tucson brides who have been to the alfred angelo store there?  is it worth the drive from phoenix?  I am plus size and want to try some of these dresses on, but don’t wanna drive all the way to tucson if it aint worth it:)

 

just had to ask!

@Ronneykay- i’m not plus size so I dont know how much help this is, but the workers at the alfred angelo in tucson are super sweet-they really make the expereince enjoyable. Maybe call and ask if they have sample sizes that you would be able to try on 🙂

@Tara Goodell:  always love pics of papago park:)  we have tons, we hike there alot, we literally live walking distance to it.  And yes, it has a golf course.  Its where we originally got married at so it makes sense to do the VR there.  I’m going all out this time though, the wedding I never had:)  I’ve already been called a bridezilla, because I am DIYing all of my decorations (yes i started even though its not for 2 years) and i get really irritated when things dont look right or turn out how i thought haha…

yes! post pics!  we got married and are having our VR at the “island” area, ramadas 9 & 10.  its where the stage is

@katiedee:  I am finding that they don’t have the size or style I want.  I have found a few:}  Tucson is only like an hour and a half away, so its not that far if they have a good selection.  Not sure if I will go there or not, I have tried on some good dresses here.  There is a shop called “strut” and its for brides 12+  its awesome.  The smallest dress they have is either a 16 or 18. 

Love it!  i hope she gets more fit and flare styles for sure.

@Ronneykay: I actually got my dress at David’s Bridal, I’m plus size, but they are doing the alterations at Alfred Angelos. I’ll tell you this, you have a lot more options about the alterations at A.A., and they didnt charge me a “Rush” fee for the last minute alterations.  I had no idea that you cant change your D.B. Dress all that much, that is if you get the alterations there.  My dress needed the neckline (halter, $15) taken up, the cleavage part taken in (dont know what the official term is, lol, $20 or so), the hem taken up a few inches, which is being done at the bodice (Most Expensive part! $80-100 depending), a bra holder in the back so it doesnt stick out ($5), and a small bustle (so i dont drag my train during the reception, $40). And they are doing it with less than 3 weeks to go!

Hi! I’m getting married in less than 2 weeks, and have taken on a boat load of DIY (dont think I’d do it again, given that I work full-time, and have a 7 month old daughter).  My theme is vintage-like, with modern touches.  Yellow, navy, lime green, and white is the color scheme.  I have milk glass vases that I got off of ebay and in the few thrift stores that carried them at a reasonable price around town.  My budget? 6,500.  My dad purchased my dress, paid for alterations, and will cover the venue.

Venue- Amado Territory Ranch, Amado, AZ

They allow you to bring in your own liquor, no corkage fee, your own caterer, although they have 2 restaurants on site, one of which will be catering for us.  You can pretty much customize it however you’d like.  The only problem is getting vendors out there, since it’s 40min from Tucson.

Flowers- Savon Wholesale florist- will let you know the final price/breakdown of what I got when I pay for them.

They have a wide selection, and if you call ahead, they can order you whatever they can get ahold of, take for instance Billy Buttons, or Craspedia, which you cant find anywhere in Tucson, I’ve looked around.

Made my own vintage inspired napkins (I can sew reasonably well, not too shabby), my own ruffled table runners (courtesy of a fellow Bee, but I used a different fabric, I was intimidated by burlap). I will be doing my own floral centerpieces (gulp) with a few close friends and family members.

Cake- Village Bakehouse- $250, will pick it up instead of paying for delivery fee.

They have amazingly moist, delicious cake! It will be a 3 tiered italian-buttercream-frosted with a cool modern looking grass design, and a gray satin ribbon/sugar flowers at the base of each tier.  I special ordered 3 yellow and white designed fabric birds on Etsy for my cake topper.
