Just wanted to pop in and say "hi" to our newcomers! Your dress and rings are so beautiful. nicolby, your lcoation sounds great. It's awesome that your family is being so genreous and helpful!

We finally booked our officiant. He's a judge, says he's been doing weddings since 1984, seems like a very pleasant, agreeable and easy to work with individual. He has a standard ceremony that he performs, but he is also open to letting us write out own ceremony/vows, include whatever readings or music we'd like. I got a bunch of books from the library about preparing the ceremony, and there are so many options! I'm looking forward to creating something short and sweet, but nice and personalized. Our goal is to have the ceremony be 30 min or less.

We want to include each of our parents in doing a reading, but we'd like to pick the readings. DF's dad would really like to read the Ana BeKoach and make a copy (bound in a nice cover) for each guest. We're going to say no, but I'll leave that to my DF. Just hope he doesn't take it personally. It would just be weird to have this kabalistic prayer thrown in there when we want to keep the service very secular. We're having a few visual, symbolic traditions borrowed from the Jewish faith, but they are ones I can connect to a larger humanistic context and like the idea of them. Other than that we'd kind of like to keep religion out of it for a number of reason.

Shan- we are also trying to avoid being too religious and making guests of other faiths uncomfortable. I don't want my wedding to look like it was outfitted at a Christian bookstore just because our families are Catholic. We did go with the Catholic wedding Mass, which covers the religious portion of the programming. I think of it as the separation of Church and reception I wish you luck- this is always a tricky area!

Lean- I did see the lace- the lines are very similar between our two dresses, though. I love yours! Lace makes me look like a chubby dwarf for some reason.

Sorry for the wait... my mom is from Danvers and I spent every summer there growing up!

Wedding plans are coming along, I got my invitations sent out yesterday... they are beautiful! I am so pleased with how they turned out, really! I also just ordered all of my silk flowers, and I can't wait to start making all of my arrangements!

I did! I had a friend print them up for me -- silkscreen actually. I'm doing a lot of things myself -- everything but the photography and catering . I made up my bridesmaids bouquets tonight (sans ribbon and other finishing touches that I need to purchase tomorrow)... (see picture attached). I'm actually having a lot of fun with these! I made my hair comb too... no photo of that yet though. I'll get one soon!

Rakel- I love peonies! Gorgeous! The "in body/in spirit" response is darling!

Well, just a little over six weeks to go and I'll officially be a Mrs. So far, so calm. We receive response cards daily. I wish we had them all so I could get the seating chart made and the placecards printed. Then I'd be done!

Oh, and I have an offer on the table to start a great new job, so I may be adding "new job" to my list of excitements! I am human Prozac... aaah!

THE CHURCH CANCELED MY DATE!

We had to reschedule.

Holy crap, they can do that?!

Our invites have been sent out for proofs, we're looking to have those out by mid-March. This thing is coming so much faster the closer it gets to the date! I have way too much going on with work (planning events) for the next month or so, but things should slow down a little after that so I can focus more on my own event!

Apparently... we're now getting married February 7, 2009. I'm trying to look at it as getting to marry my love a week early... but it's hard.

Ah, Twirly!  I hope all goes well for you!  Our priest (and good friend of my family) had a quadruple bypass this past Friday!  I'm not sure what concerns me more: his health or the fact that he still insists on performing the ceremony.  Aaaah!
I have to pass along a FIND:  Merry Modes, Inc. in NJ makes a slip/strapless bra that is perfect for my dress.  Style 9600 is keeping everything where it belongs on the day of my wedding!  What a reflief, since the diet has been more or less chucked out the window!

Yikes! I hope he is ok.

Just got my proofs on my invitations in (they look great!) and finalized the guest list. Seems like we're checking things off left and right these days.

I am a little nervous about the undergarment situation with my dress. (I posted pix here). The back is too low to allow for any sort of real bra so the plan is to sew cups into the dress. Hopefully it will be enough to hold everything in place! I've heard mixed reviews about Spanx undergarments, anyone here tried them? I need something that won't show seams through the dress but would also like something to smooth the tummy and thighs. My dress should be here within the next month, I can't believe the wedding is in only 3 months!

Good afternoon ladies!

I'm getting married on June 1, 2008. It will be the 17th anniversary of our first date. We have a 15 year old daughter that will be giving her father away during the ceremony. Our official has something else on the burner with her as well, but they won't tell us what!

I've lost 10.5lbs since starting back on my plan (Jan 7/08) and am hoping for about 15 more before the wedding...that's three months and should be doable.

I'll just give a quick run down of what I've got done to date:

Colours: (Navy, White & Silver)
Wedding Gown: Picked it up last weekend, have to take it to a seamstress as I'm having the panel in the back (under the corset) changed from a white panel to Navy Blue.
Bridesmaid Dresses: Got em! Alfred Angelo #6310 in Navy
Venue: Done!
Reception Food/Wine: Done!
DJ: Done!
Official: Done!
Invitations: Should be delivered this week. Bought send and seals to make things easy.
Guest List: Pretty much done...still working on the "b" list
Vows: Haven't even started
Wedding Bands: Harven't even looked
Flowers: Have a consultation this Friday
Wedding Consultant: She's a friend and my saving grace so far!
Ceremony: We're getting there...venue is booked just working on details
Rehearsal: Booked
Photographer: Booked and we've already done our engagement photos...one is my Avatar
Decor: Working on it

If anyone is interested you can check out our website: www.tamarawedsjason08.com

Looking forward to hearing ideas, exchanging photos and so on.

Cheers,
Tamara
