JM I'm so happy for you. Sounds like you are way ahead of the game and that's great. May 12th is the special day I wrote about recently. The day I met Rich and it changed my life forever. I am so happy that you will share that special date too. Hugs.

Great that you found the dress and managed to get it at discount....yah

Have to say you had a busy weekend but planning a wedding can be like that.

I wore my aunts wedding dress as there was no way we could afford to buy one the whole wedding was done as cheap as possable..........a trend that runs in our family.

Yay for the dress discount! That is fantastic! I'm impressed that you've planned so much so far in advance. You are certainly one smart cookie for doing so. :-)
