I just can't seem to escape the drama. I was in tears this morning because I am so overwhelmed. I...
Hey ladies, I'm getting pretty annoyed up here in my little Canadian home. I'm looking for purple shoes to wear at my wedding, and obviously these aren't easy to come by. I have, however, found two that I absolutely LOVE on the internet. They are the perfect height and colour. My problem? Most online stores DO NOT ship anywhere but to the USA. WTF?? Or the websites that actually do ship outside the USA charge $50 shipping plus border fees, hence tripling the cost of the shoes! AAAAHHHHHH. Really, Canada ain't that far, especially where I'm at. In fact, I'm so close to the border that I'm seriously considering opening a P.O. box across the border and driving down to pick them up myself. Are there any other Canadian brides out there with this problem?
On a happier note, I have booked my florist! And no, it's not the one who cancelled my appointment because she was so busy and late in her day's work. The florist I went with is charging me far less than this one, and yet is charging me extra for shipping because he's further out in the country. FH and I also completed our pre-martial counselling weekend required by our church. It was three very intense days of sit and listen.. but we lived through it. I just finished paying for my dress, hooray!! AAaand I'm going out shopping with my bridesmaids tomorrow to pick out a dress, hopefully. I really want them all to wear the same thing, but damn it's hard to please everyone. What happened to the days when the bride was all that mattered? I'm not trying to be selfish here but it seems today like EVERYONE has to look amazing. I've got a few challenges on my hands:
1. One bridesmaid is currently losing weight she gained from her last two pregnancies. So... she's pushing for us to buy as late as possible so she can spend less in alterations. Also, she's a different body shape than the rest and she's got a very strong opinion... what fits her best doesn't necessarily fit the others...
2. One bridesmaid just had a baby, and flipped out over having to buy a dress so soon. Well, sorry hun, you knew it was coming. But now she's also pushing to wait as long as possible so she can drop the weight.
3. One bridesmaid just announced that she's pregnant, and will be 9 MONTHS pregnant at the wedding. Now we definitely need to shop for a flowy dress that will cover the belly, or that can be altered to fit a belly.
I'm currently finishing my last semester of university, and that's the main reason I haven't been on here much... I can't wait to finish it all! After that I'll be able to concentrate on working (finding a job) and the wedding! Wish me luck!
