I have been meaning to ask you. What are your going to do about all your dresses? Have you decided which one you will wear for the 2 weddings?
for our dw in hawaii this november:this dress (maggie sotterro) in white w/ white sash:
for our church ceremony Aug 2009:
henry roth for church:
mine is the one on the left in diamond white:
i'll post actual pics of it after shutterfly is back up...
and then for the reception next august - i'm wearing "your" av dress - in "oyster" or white - i am still trying to decide which color to order...
i decided to use the jim hjelm bm dress i got as my hawaii "backup" for TTD session next year:good thing since it's not in yet - not vey good "backup" plan i had huh??
this is the maggie dress that our guests will sign - we're using it for our guestbook:
You know, I can't inmagine the AV dress in any other color but the Creme. When I went to veiw the dress and pick a color, I really wanted an ivory dress, but then I saw the sample of the dress and it was in creme. That color just fit the dress so well.
I was thinking of ordering that Jim Hjelm one myself as a back up. Let me know when it finally arrives and take pics of yourself in it.
Also, the AV dress will run you between $3200 and $3500 depending what salon you go to. Just wanted to give you a heads up. :0)
Oh and most important, in order to get the dress before August, you must order it no later than October of this year. That is what I did. It took 8 months for it to come in.
8 months??? whoa!! i guess i can believe it - my henry roth took almost 6 months...
the creme is gorg in the av - but unfortunately - doesnt look good on my skin tone - so after holding the swatches next to my face - and holding up another av dress in oyster and white next to me - i figured one of the 2...
good tip - thanks! def before october to order!
Ok, I see what you mean about the color. I have a light carmel skin tone, so the creme worked for me. :0) I think the oyster would work for you. I'm Black, but I am so light, I get sun burned..haha. My father always makes fun of me...lol
Anywhoo, yes, if you really want that AV dress, order it in October. I ordered my on October 22, 2006 and it arrived sometime during the last week of June 2007. It takes a long time!!!!!
P.S. Check your PM. I had a question to ask you , but din't want to ask it here. :0)
brilliant minds like ours think alike! hahahahaha
i just pm'd you back doll! =)
I got it and responded. :0)
aaahhh - my gf took lots of pics of her daughter on the 1st day of kindergarten last year... Lauren was like "mom i dont want to take pictures - you're embarraassing me!!!" hahaha aawww - i guess it's true they do grow up so fast?!?!?
i used to love my school supplies more so than the clothes - since my mom bought me clothes all the time - it kinda wasnt a big deal to go "school clothes shopping"
i always got the "trapper keeper" (remember those??) with the folders of either sanrio - hello kitty or my favorite little twin stars and my melody!! then the scented erasers!!! and the random folders of puppies or kittens! hhahahahaa
aaahhhh - the 80s!!!
We are definetly taking lots of pics. Cheyanna LOVES to have her pics taken.
School shopping was a big deal for me and my brother as well. My mom would take us and we would pick out all of our supplies including a trapper keeper. Those were great.
We went to Catholic school, so we wore uniforms. My mom would take us shopping for regular clothes because we had free dress days sometimes.
I swear, I was such a clothes whore when I was a kid. All of my clothes had to be designer. It ticked off my mom, but she still spent the money and bought them..lol
Ahhh yes, Hello Kitty. I remember that so well. My mom would take me to the Hello Kitty store and I wold get all sort sof cool stuff.
Those were the days. Sigh...
