Just for fun..
Sign: Aries (March 20-April 19)
Personality traits: Curious, energetic and independent.
Bridal pro: When given a task, especially one that you love, youll put all your effort and energy into it.
Bridal con: Because of your zesty nature theres the possibility of leaving others in the dust, like your bridesmaids, or even your mister. Enjoy the planning process and keep an ear open to their needs and wants as well.
Sign: Taurus (April 19-May 20)
Personality traits: Patient, practical and dedicated.
Bridal pro: Your hard-working and reliable nature will allow you to delve into the wedding planning process without getting into a major tizzy.
Bridal con: You have a tendency not to have an open mind. When you make your decision, you stick to it, regardless. To prevent a stressful situation from occurring, keep your mind open to other suggestions.
Sign: Gemini (May 20-June 20)
Personality traits: Charismatic, communicative and intellectual.
Bridal pro: A very outgoing person and a great communicator, youll find dealing with vendors and getting exactly what you want, when you want it a breeze.
Bridal con: You can get bored very easily. Know your limits and what you can and cant do. For example, come up with a whimsical invitation idea but leave the labelling and address stamping to somebody elses capable hands.
Sign: Cancer (June 20-July 22)
Personality traits: Nurturing, cautious and emotional.
Bridal pro: Your caring nature towards others will come in handy, especially when it comes to dealing with guests and your own bridal party. Youll find yourself making sure that everybody is having a good time and that problems between members of your bridal party are at a standstill.
Bridal con: Be wary of your sensitive side. You may find that small comments bother you. For example, if you overhear a bridesmaids remark on the style of her dress, try not to take it to heartitll save you extra stress in the long run.
Sign: Leo (July 22-August 22)
Personality traits: Ambitious, loyal and generous.
Bridal pro: A natural-born leader who enjoys being the life of the party, youll definitely love the attention of wedding talk with whomever. Youre easy to please and wont be throwing tantrums when your stretch limo arrives in white instead of the black one you ordered.
Bridal con: Because of your extravagant nature and urge to splurge, you may find yourself deep in the budget hole. Keep a book nearby to record all your expenses and spend wisely.
Sign: Virgo (August 22-September 22)
Personality traits: Organized, helpful and a perfectionist.
Bridal pro: Problem-solving, commitment and attention to detail are some of your strongest talents. These characteristics will ensure that every single detail from the decoration setup right down to the limo pickup is taken care of.
Bridal con: Your perfectionism may get in the way of accomplishing tasks on time. Remember, not everything must be perfect! Learn to divide your time equally and prioritize what is most important.
Sign: Libra (September 22-October 22)
Personality traits: Passionate, considerate and sociable.
Bridal pro: One of your best traits is being socially aware of ongoing trends. Because of your awareness of whats hip and hot, you can rest assured that your celebration will be filled with style, excitement and fun.
Bridal con: Your considerate personality is your Achilles heel. You dont enjoy conflict and like keeping the peace, but dont be afraid to speak your mind to others (like that bothersome mother-in-law). Your wedding day is all about you, after all, and if you dont want to wear an old family necklace, you dont have to.
Sign: Scorpio (October 22-November 21)
Personality traits: Intuitive, focused and loyal.
Bridal pro: You know what you want and go for it. Picking your wedding dress, along with the rest of your attire, will be a breeze because no ones opinion will sway you in the least.
Bridal con: You may have a tendency to be too honest because you like telling it like it is. Before speaking, take a moment to decide whether you can honestly confide in somebody without causing a commotion. For example, telling a cake vendor that their cakes look slightly deranged might be better left unsaid!
Sign: Sagittarius (November 21-December 21)
Personality traits: Adventurous, easygoing and straightforward.
Bridal pro: Your willingness to try new things is a great strength. Youll find wedding planning stress-free since youre the type to go with the flow and see the optimism in everything.
Bridal con: Although you have a laid-back attitude, your thrill for adventure and spontaneity may cause you to skip some of your wedding responsibilities. Keep a checklist handy to ensure that everything that needs to be done is finished before you move onto something new.
Sign: Capricorn (December 21-January 20)
Personality traits: Hard-working, ambitious and responsible.
Bridal pro: Your disciplined nature will show when it comes to budgeting for your special day. Because of your responsible persona, you wont have to worry about paying off endless debts after your soiree.
Bridal con: Sometimes rather than seeing the glass as being half full you see it as half empty. Try and learn to let go of that concept and see things in a better light. For example, if you hear your day calls for rainy weather, dont sit back and wait for the storm to happen. Think positively and brainstorm for ways you can cope with the so-called disastrous forecast.
Sign: Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Personality traits: Idealistic, kind and eccentric.
Bridal pro: Your quirky attitude and outside-of-the-box ideas will come in handy when it comes to wedding planning. Because of your unique ideas, your guests can expect to experience a completely unique wedding celebration.
Bridal con: When it comes to doing things the traditional way, expect to cross some barriers. For example, your mother may want you get married in a church whereas you have other ceremony locations in mind. Be mindful of those situations and know when to draw the line and when to compromise.
Sign: Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Personality traits: Patient, perceptive and shy.
Bridal pro: Theres nothing better than a patient bridewhich is what you are. Chaotic occasions may arise but your calming attitude will allow you to not get caught up in the wedding frenzy.
Bridal con: Your shy personality may get in the way of having things done in a certain way. Dont let anybody push you around. Speak up on what you like and dont like and youll enjoy your W-day to the fullest.

What color(s) is/are your dress ladies?!
Well I've decided to use all shades of purple that I can tolerate because I have also come to the realization that unless I use the same swatch of material for all dress designs for me and my gurls..there is no way that we are all going to match.
The reason for this choice is that although I stand 5'9-5'10..imma big girl and overly blessed in the hips area and have a smaller waist, so I figured this design would work out best to hide my flaws and to highlight the areas of my roundness that I feel comfortable having on display..*haha*
So why not add contrast by using various shades*said I*..so take a peek as to what I have in mind and let me know what your thoughts are k's
The drink(s) of choice
"Did you know that the antioxidant benefits are increased when mixed with alcohol?"
Listen..you don't have to tell me twice..I read that info and it was a done deal!
Apparently there is this beneficial drink which is good for you and also...PURPLE!!..it's tagged by the same name and is gonna look so cute being served to our guests which prefer to have a drink with alcohol in it..
And here is the website in case you are still wondering..
Calla Lillies(my fav)
..in purple of course
There is something about calla lillies that makes me smile..they are such a bold and yet elegant and graceful flower that commands attention and overall I like that it's not too much of a delicate flower such as some others that I've seen used in bouquets.
Without any doubt they will be playing a major role in my bouquet!
Almost 3 years in progress
Wow...where to begin?!
I'm a widowed Mother of three children and was at a point where my life was all about them and my Career, I didn't give up on love..but at the same time wasn't holding my breath for it to find me.
BUT IT DID, and I give thanks for my FH on a daily basis. I've known him for 4 years and became friends with him almost immediately, it was as if via our communications that we didn't have to spend an excess of time sharing our thoughts because one another was able to finish not only one anothers sentences but also to be in tune with one anothers feelings/emotions is a priceless gift.
It was in 2007 that he asked for me to become his Wife and I happily said MOS DEF!
