Wedding Progress!

1. Dropped off my wedding set to be sized. I decided to keep the one I already had, rather than order another. I guess you could say in the few years i've worn the engagement ring, the set has grown on me. Found a much cheaper place to size them than the place in the mall that quoted me $194 for both rings...I found a place closer to home that will size them both to the size I need for $85. Sweet!

2. Dropped off my dress for alterations today, I found a place called Morrell's right up the street owned by a little Hispanic lady named Saly who is taking in the halter and sides, redoing the bust, and creating my bustle all for $100 bucks. Plus tax, which equals $108.25.

I couldn't believe what great deals I got at such a spur of the moment. My best friend was jealous that I found someone who did such good work at such a cheap price to do my dress LOL
