As far as the wedding plans go we have found a place for the reception, the temple is booked, we have a photographer, and a pattern for the wedding dress. So all those things are falling into place.
Now all Brad and I have to do is survive the next semester of school for me and get through FTO with the Logan Police Department for Brad. We are both doing the best we can to be positive about having to be apart but let me tell you it ain't easy. I have a new found respect for war brides, and military wives.

- I don't want a train and evidently that is blasphemous in the wedding dress world.
- I want actual elbow length sleeves this too seems to be too difficult. (If one more sales lady says we can do any of these dresses with an elbow length sleeve, I might scream. Don't they understand that I would like to see how the dress looks with the longer sleeve before I buy it)
- I have a larger bust and all dress designers assume that if you are that size on top you must be big everywhere else. So the dresses are either so tight in the chest i can't breathe or they are big as tents but now I can breathe.
- What is with the cap sleeve, don't they understand that is the fattest part of most girls arms and all the cap sleeve does is draw attention to it.
Okay, I am done ranting now, just got a little frustrated there for a minute. I have found an absolutely beautiful pattern that my mother will be making my dress from. And i also managed to find out that you can order really nice high quality bridal fabrics from JoAnns they don't carry them in the store but they can be ordered.
On the plus side, we have chosen a date so put Thursday, May 29, 2008 on your calendars because we will be getting hitched. And we are narrowing in on a location for the reception so that is helpful as well. If anyone has any suggestions, hints, or tips I would love to hear about them.
