today keith and i are going to little kids wear to look at flowergirl dresses. i know i am looking early but i want to make sure that i like something they have there and i need to check if we need to order it early or if we'll be able to buy off the rack as we get closer.

i have heard such good things about this shop, i am looking forward to it today!!

well i just got back from little kids wear and i saw dresses that were beautiful for cheap but nothing in the color i want!!  

i want my little ones in my bright green color since b2 doesn't make kids dresses and i don't want 2 different purples.....

i'm toying with the idea of buying my own fabric at joann's and having susanti make them. she said it would be around $100 or so...

crap, i thought this could all be decided today

Hello MauraPea...I just got through reading your journal.  What a sweet proposal.  You two make such a cute couple. I love DisneyLand as well, and am slowly converting my FI !!  We are also having our wedding at the El Cortez, and are using Paul Bott for flowers, food, & decor as well.  We have only met with him once and absolutly love him.  At first we weren't going to do a tasting until early fall, but after reading your journal I remembered that we have to include meal choices in our invites as well.  Better contact Paul soon!!  Thanks for mentioning that.  If you don't mind me asking, what is your menu like?

i don't mind you asking at all

we are having the melon salad (stunning and delicious)

probably a soup, all the djs we interviewed said he was the only caterer in san diego to serve soup so we should have it. since the wedding is in april probably a cold soup.

then the filet mignon with wasabi mashed potatos and grilled veggies!!!

it was all excellent on friday night we can't wait to eat it again!!!

paul talked me out of offering 2 dishes. i don't have and vegetarians coming but he said he could make something for them. he said it was easier on everyone if there was only the one dinner. that way on rsvp cards only have them check yes or no for attending. i'm including a card saying what will be served so that guests know to come hungry!!

i'm feeling a little queasy right now....tomorrow i am buying my wedding dress!!!aaahhhh.

i'm also in a funny position. my parents and keiths both gave us an equal amount to pay for the wedding. we set up a wedding account at wamu and have been using it to pay for everything. the other night keith's mom made a coment how she doesn't think the joint wedding money should be used to buy my dress. i love her and i didn't take offense but it made me feel uncomfortable. my parents don't have as much money as his and i am pretty sure they think the money they gave us will cover my dress.

so last week i brought it up to my mom and she agreed with me but i don't think my dad will. plus i don't know if she'll bring money tomorrow....we will have to see tomorrow!

my two sisters are my co-maids of honor and they are coming with me tomorrow to order their dresses. one of my sisters is going back up to northern ca for school and needs the dress to be altered in december when she comes home again. i am looking forward to having them find the perfect dresses but i'm nervous about who's paying for mine!

i had a hard time falling asleep last night and when i did i
dreamed my sister's maid of honor dress was spraypainted
dark green...not sure what that means.

i called my mom this mornign and settled the dress. i am going
to pay for it today and she will pay me back later so now i
can just enjoy my sisters getting their dresses and ordering
mine!!!!

oh, and i think i found a way around paying $120 for the guest
signing platter i want

i went to clay and latte in carmel mountain and saw that the
platter i want is only $40, add $8 for using their studio and
having it glazed. then buy 2 ceramic pens and it should be
good to go.....i need to make a little one first to test it out.

Congratulations on buying your dress!!  That is so exciting!! I know what you mean about the waiting. My dress is supposed to be coming in at the end of Sept. and the waiting is killing me !  But like you said the time will fly by. 

Sounds like you are going to have an amazing dinner at your wedding as well.  Thanks for sharing!!
