My birthday is soon. Yay, thirty-four. Chris has opted to contribute to my wedding dress fund for part of my birthday present. He said he's getting me something else too, but he doesn't have to. Pretty sure, helping me pay for my wedding dress is good enough. He's smacking down $600 into it. I'm already at around $1200. By the time I can actually go wedding dress shopping, I'll have way more than my projected budget to look forward to. I guess that means I'll have a safety net if I go above what I settle on for a budget. I'm fairly certain $1000 is healthy budget. Without the contribution, it's $200 over. But, one has to remember that alterations and such will have to be a thing after the purchase.
I'm surprisingly worried about finding the right bra. LOL The girls aren't minimal, so it'll be a struggle. I'll have to just get another bra fitting done to make sure. I'm paranoid.
I told my bridesmaids they can pick their dresses as long as they're all long, the same colour, and the same fabric. It might be wise to have it be the same designer too....not sure yet. I have plenty of time, though. I might end up with a different vision than the one I have right now. I've already ordered some stuff that I can do now. I got cute personalized cups with straws and lids for the bachelorette, and I ordered some bracelets in rose gold for the bridesmaids. When it gets closer to the day, I'm going to order robes for them as well. I've also purchased a bunch of tea lights to use at the reception. I figure, if I get a bunch of the little stuff out of the way now, I won't have to rush and dump a ton of money all at once to get everything.
Just a heads up, readers: I am probably going to talk about the wedding a lot on here. I've got it on the brain now. I make no appologies for that. I legit had no idea I was going to be this into it until it happened. LOL
