So as i am driving over there, i am trying not to get my hopes up. I put on the under garmets and the skirt thing is loose. I don't thing much of it, then Melissa came to buckle the bra thing and she was able to put it on the smallest row, which she did not tell me!
Then the lady comes in and slips the dress over my head and and just zips it right up. I was still standing there waiting going, ok you can zip it now.
That means i went from a size 16 w/ a 35 inch waist to a size 12 with a 32 inch waist !!!!!
Now the countdown begins, 16 more days to go!!!

I needed the support. i am having a really hard time with my parents right now on budget issues. I have been able to pull this entire thing off in about a month to two months with a little over two grand. But my parents still think it is too expensive and that i'm asking for too much. While they feel like buying two new cars and a brand spankin new 60 inch LCD flatscreen TV
BUT, they say they are doing the best they can! (said extremley sarcasticly with an air of "story of my life" tone.)
Sorry for the outrage, i just came from over there
I know, it is only a couple of hours, and who really remembers it all anyway...............................right?
|Nice job, enjoy your big day.|
|Hey, I know what you mean about the 'rents. Mine got mad because I decided I wanted to do it before everyone could feaseably get here.. All my extended family is in NY. I just didn't want to wait anymore. So they helped out monitarily ummmm $0. My sister in law helped me out a lot more, but I think I spent a total of 500. And my mother looked mad in every pic, but I still am totally happy with how it went down.
Try to have fun and remember, it's not the money that makes the event it's the feeling behind it. You could do it for the smallest possible amount and with nobody there but you and your other half and still be so happy you'll never forget it. ( I mean relly, who all is there besides you and him anyways? )
|Congratulations! That is so fantastic and quite an accomplishment! Can't wait to see wedding pictures!
I am soooo impressed with your budget - 2 grand!!!!
Just google-ing "average wedding cost" I found that the average wedding cost in B.C. in 2006 was $29,000. You're doing great!
|That fantastic! Congratulations! Have an awesome wedding!|
Way to go! I'm anxiously awaiting to see your photos after the big event and I bet you look beautiful in your dress.
