i know exactly what you mean!! I definitely thought you were older too FGR, and everyone else too!

This is so nice though, to know that i'm not the only one going through this.

Gratz on the wedding!

#3 is my favorite too. I dont like #5, looks too much like a prom dress.

Good luck with your wedding. Remember its the day for you and your husband. So if your family or his tries to tell you what to do, tell them to buzz off. Make it what you and he want - not what everyone else expects or wants. :)

thanks kim! I've been finding out that a lot of the wedding dresses are like prom dresses. It's quite interesting if you ask me.

I will definitely make sure the wedding's about us, not what they want it to be

Immature guys really irritate me too. They're like too cocky and i can't stand it.

Tom and i fit each other perfectly because we can be really mature sometimes, but then we can also be total goof balls and we'll crack up over the stupidest things.
Weird.. you just described me...
I had my moments when I was away at school where I just let loose and was a typical college girl having fun, but for the most part I just found those things... well, not up my alley.
I see all those late teen/early 20's guys around and they're all "thugin'" - I can't stand it; I have to fight the urge to go and put their hats on properly...

I love 1-3, but don't care for 4 or 5.

Maybe it is a horse girl thing. My husband always teases me about how old I act. We will be married 7 years this year, and we got married when I was 18 and he was 22. I now tease him about how he is basically 30.

Hope you don't mind some old married gal advice. I was 30 when I got married and my parents were in the middle of a divorce so I had to pay for everything myself. Thankfully I had a good job but I still shopped the sale racks for my wedding dress. I think I was a pretty bride whether I paid $2k or $200 for my dress. (I actually paid around $80-90) I paid more for the hat then I did for the dress I didn't feel too bad when 18 years later I gave it to the good-will. My sister did all the flowers and I did spend a lot on the reception for cake, photographer etc. I think you can have just as nice a wedding by not overspending and not having to worry about the bills when you are just starting out. By saving our pennys on the wedding we were able to buy our first house soon after our marriage. My sister-in-law found a place that rented wedding dresses for her wedding. I thought that was a great idea, wish they would have had that when I got married.
I do like dress #3 out of all the choices. Make sure you don't scrimp on the undergarments in that one. I stepped on the front of my dress going up to the alter and I would have pulled that one down and given my father-in-law (our minister) a good shot of the girls.

Thanks My2Geldings. I'll keep everyone updated!

JDI, i dont understand how some of the guys dress. Pants that are way to big. Shirts that look like dressed, and hats either to the side, or covering their eyes. I dont get it!

My fiance always calls me a baby. He says i almost always act like one. I don't really think i do. I tell Tom that he's old sometimes. I could only imagine what it will be like when he turns 30

Vida, i will make sure i have on the proper undergarments. I do like the strapless dresses, but i'm only going to get one if it fits me well enough. What i'm thinking about doing it seeing a designer dress that i like, (the style and pattern) and then finding a cheaper dress that is similar to it.

We will definitely save for this, unless my parents (the bride's father pays right?) pay for the wedding, or some of it. We are planning on having a small wedding, basically just my immediate family and his. And his mom does wedding cakes so we'll get a cake from his mom, and we know a few people that do wedding photography and video.

Just need to get all the other details.
