Enjoying reading along!! Not sure what PJ means but I will google/search boards later.

Wanted to say a few things:

I love your name, that is my DD's name too.

Your grandfather seems like an amazing man, and the pic of you and him is so cute. I have to say, he looks great for his age...actually think he looks much younger!

The dress you ultimately decided on is gorgeous on you. I myself had bought 1 wedding dress and then ended up falling in love with another, and returned the other one and went with the one I fell in love with.

How did the M&M's surprise go with your sister in laws? Hope they all said yes! How many are in your bridal party?

Looking forward to hearing more updates!

PS- I really love the blue and white bouquet....it is soo beautiful.

I can't believe it's been SO long since I posted on your PJ! I think because I see all the updates on FB.

You know I love your dress, it's beautiful. And, well, M&Ms, you can't go wrong. I could just buy a few bags every holiday and I'd have my colors, but I wouldn't have the awesome personalization! Love them, can't wait for more!

Hi Lauren!

Your dress is beautiful! And I just noticed you live in Cape May - I live in Mays Landing!!! Where did you go dress shopping? I have not started yet but since there are not a whole lot of stores around here I was hoping you might have some advice about where to shop or where to avoid!!

Thank you so much! I was named after Ralph Lauren lol. My mom loved one of his perfumes, Lauren. Pop is amazing. I want half of his energy and spunk when I'm 87 years old. Thanks so much on the dress compliment. I am glad you found a dress you loved too. Do you have a PJ so I could see it?

The M&M went over well. They all said yes. Our wedding party is going to be Keith's two brothers and my brother, and their three wives. Plus our two nephews and one niece. I wasn't all about a bridal party, but Keith really wanted one and since he hasn't asked for much, I tend to give in when he asks.

I still am so in love with the blue and white bouquet too.

I hope to have more updates soon. Things are pretty slow here until we can lock in a date. What date are you looking at?

I know you love my dress and you know I love yours! I priced out mulitcolor m&ms for you and it's not really all that pricey. I was having a slow day at work and was being curious.

Hi, fellow South Jersian! I lived in Mays Landing for four years, I went to Stockton. I love our little part of the world. I went to Cherry Hill and tried on a few dresses because I was in love with the designer. I had no luck. I stopped in Tesi Bridal in Ventor and was not happy with it. I felt like they were a little snotty because I wasn't willing to spend thousands on a dress that I didn't absolutely love! I actually wound up getting my dress at the David's Bridal in Mays Landing, in Hamilton Commons. The consultant I had, Hannah, was the sweetest person I had ever met. She listened really well when I told her the list of everything I liked or didn't like about each dress. When she put me in the dress, she even said to me, "Oh, my goodness, I think you will love this one," which was different than the other times, when she would just make comments about style or details. I would definitely recommend you call and make an appointment with her. I went on a Tuesday afternoon, so it was very slow and I got to spend a lot of time with dresses. I wasn't rushed at all. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me.

Gasp! I remember seeing your dress, but I've not commented. Well, let me say now that is absolutely gorgeous and it fits you so beautifully!

I love the idea of using the M&Ms, that is so clever! Plus they look great and who doesn't love getting a bunch of M&Ms.

You'll be finding out about your date soon, right? Fingers crossed you get the date and locations you want!

Thanks so much for the info, David's Bridal was on my list so I will definitely ask for Hannah! I went to Stockton too...and actually I'm still there now trying to finish my MBA. A girl from school had a not so great experience at Alfred Angelo in Cherry Hill so I've decided to stay away from stores up there if I can find something down here instead. Thanks again for your advice!

Thanks for the dress compliment. Unfortunately I can't get a date until August since we are just doing an escape wedding. I'm so tired of saying I hope to get married on this day but I don't know. People look at me like I'm nuts

Yay, Stockton!!!! They changed it so much since I've been gone. I had heard that the AA in Cherry Hill had a lot of attitude problems, so I steered clear of that store as well.

Yay! Are they calling you relentlessly too? I get a call a week about ordering bridesmaids dresses. They are driving me crazy!

Yes not only do they call but Men's Warehouse and Direct Buy. I finally answered and told them that the ladies would not be getting their dresses right away the chic on the phone got nasty. Men's warehouse will not stop calling it is always twice a night with in 15 minutes of eachother.

I am going to post my dress picks on my PJ tonight thanks for PM'ing me the picture steps.

Wow just got caught up on your PJ - your dress!!! Beautiful, you look fantastic in it. And I love love love the M&M's, when I first read about them I thought you meant there would be one M&M per letter and the BM's would have to rearrange them all to spell out the message... I was thinking there's no way I'd be able to work that out, I'd probably eat them before I solved it haha! But then I saw the pic and realised it wasn't that tricky haha!

I wish we had more options like that in the UK, there's far less on offer here - I had really wanted to do personalised Yankee Candles as favours but you can't get them here, I'm toying with just making my own!

Loving all your plans so far, looking forward to next update!

Men's Wearhouse is super annoying. They really drive me crazy! I was getting calls up to 4 times a day. UGH! I think I found the trick to David's Bridal though....get the bridesmaids dresses first. I did this and they never call me.
