So we have a photographer and we couldn't be happier...well we could if we were already married...and had a million bucks, well maybe not even then.

Coleen likes #1 and Jess likes #2. I like them both but I also like #3 and #4. Maybe a trip to the bridal shop is in order. I like #4 with a small ribbon/sash around the waist.

So I think this is the easiest way, aside from actually shopping in a store - geesh who does that anymore - to see some of my ideas for bridesmaid's dresses. Just some ideas and nothing more. I love the colors though. EEEEE!!! as Coleen would say. I really like the first one but in a different color, obviously! Have at it ladies. These are all from David's Bridal but we don't necessarily need to go there. This is just to generate ideas. Thoughts?

So apparently I lucked out at Filene's Basement's Running of the Brides because I scored myself a Maggie Sottero Couture bridal gown for $250! Originally, I believe it is $2298. Ummm that is an over $2000 savings! And for anyone who knows bridal fashion, Maggie Sottero is an innovator in the industry, one of the most recognized bridal gown manufacturers, a multi-award winning designer label offering brides the best fit in the industry, coupled with the highest quality fabrics and exquisite details.

I think I am getting ahead of myself with all this wedding planning. It is quite obsessive...I work, eat and sleep wedding invitations, save the date cards, favors! OY! I have dreams about colors and paper and ribbons. I love all this stuff and being creative is very fulfilling to me....unfortunately it does not go well with my obsessive nature which wants me to have it all done immediately.

So we are in the stages of planning hell for the greatest day of our lives....ok not hell but similar. I am one who goes at something hard and quick and so I want all this done now. Why? So I can sit and wait and think about all the things that might go wrong. Its all true. Plus we want to do it all ourselves and have a hand it all the little pieces.
We have decided that our wedding gift registry will primarily include things for our honeymoon/trip. I am SO HAPPY Juliano asked me to marry him and I am very excited to be him wife. BUT it puts a slight kaibash on our plan to drive to Brazil so why not use one for the other? Between the two of us we have tons of things already. Plus, since we are planning a long trip and probably getting rid of much of our stuff, not sure how much sense it makes to get lots of new stuff. So by deduction, we will register for stuff we will really use.
This is what I say NOW, but my mom and sister say Get really good towels and sheets. And I want people to feel like they can give us whatever they feel that want to give or even nothing at all.
Damn, it IS all about everyone else. Crap.

is a beautiful thing....wedding planning can make you crazy. I am currently running circles in my head over ceremony/receptions sites, trying to find the one that matches us, works with our budget, doesn't feed the wedding machine and is actually memorable in a really personal way.

...with my boyfriend and came home engaged! Can I even believe it? It happened quickly, I had no idea, he totally surprised me and lied to me...for like a month.

I had to break up with that guy in my head, the one I created as a girl, the perfect man, the perfect mate, the one I have been searching in vain for all of my adult life and the one I will never find cause there is no way in hell he exists. Yeah that one....I had to break up with him...and it is for good this time. He never calls. He never takes me out. I am always left unfulfilled and longing for more. He never compliments me. He never takes care of me, holds my hand when I cross the street. Can't remember the last time, if ever, he made me dinner or brought be fresh flowers. I am usually left talking to myself as I mull over our problems...he isn't much of a talker. He has never met my nephew or my cats. I dress up for him, have my hair and nails done and he never seems to notice. What must I do to get his attention, to get a single glance my way, to have a word of kindness uttered in my direction, a simple recognition of my existence? So for this and so many other reason, I have to break up with the guy in my head.

My name is Mellissa and I am a princess….except for the fact that I am a little neurotic, obsessive, overworking, underslept, addicted to coffee, cheese and music. I am dating my best friend’s – well maybe now ex best friend’s – ex boyfriend – to my credit it was three years ago for three months and she is now engaged. I have two cats, Sadie and Sasha, one sleeps on my head and the other is in love with my weird male roommate. Traitor. I have a therapist who I think helps me and an Al Anon meeting which I know helps me. I have a complicated family life, mothers, fathers and lots of sibs...and love, mostly love. I can’t have a relationship to save my life….until now. I sit at a desk all day and pretend to work. I am political and loud and very opinionated….all of which get me in trouble. I like to exercise but never do and somehow think I can be in shape and healthy. I have slightly elevated cholesterol and blood pressure. And I gained two pounds over the weekend. Damn it. I hate my nose and want a nose job, I need Botox for a furrow in my brow that comes from my retro-cringe.
On the other hand, I have awesome friends, an amazing nephew and an overabundance, overflowing amount of love and goodness in my life.
My name is Mellissa and I am a princess….a princess askew. Welcome to my world.
