Dear JCrew,

I was about to post a not so nice message to you as I ordered a sweater last week while you offered your 20% off and free shipping and never got a conformation email it shipped. Normally I would be ok with it as it was a simple white cardigan and really you can find them anywhere. The issues would have been I wanted this exact one,


as I'm wearing my navy Lyndsey dress. Get it white and navy...my colors. (yes people I am "that" bride who is going to sport her wedding colors to her wedding related get together)



While tapping away at my desk the lovely mail lady came and delivered my sweater. No conformation email just the package and while I was starting to wonder if you stood me up, you found the right time to come through. So thanks! And thanks to J for the JCrew gift card and thank you to Preppy Sue for the free shipping code. Such a group effort for one simple white sweater.

Now that I got that out of the way.

Big fan of this week being over, coming back on Wednesday threw me for a loop. Not much planned for the weekend and by that I mean I didn't plan anything because I have so much I need to get done before next weekend. I have my family coming in Thursday, my MOH Liane and her fiance are coming in Friday. I can't wait, she has never been to Boston and it'll be nice to finally be able to show her where I've been for the last 6 years.

Saturday we have to finish up our registry and we have lunch plans. Our gym is suppose to be open so that's a must. Also Saturday there is a surprise 30th birthday party for a friend of ours we might attend. How's that for no plans, I'm doomed! :)

I'm about to book our trolley for the wedding party, it was really the only why we could all travel together and enjoy ourselves. It will be used from the church to the beach for pictures and then to the club. I'm wondering if it's worth it, $1000 bucks for that. I guess I need a little more time to think about it. Thoughts?

Yikes...$1000...but, I say if it is the budget, do it! I have been in MANY weddings and the party starts on the trolley!
Enjoy you quiet weekend!

Do the trolley, my sister had one for hers that was pulled by a team of Kleidsdale horses and the whole wedding party was there. It was one of the best parts of the wedding. I do recommend having beverages on board.

I also ordered a bunch from the 20% off but had no free shipping and I am still waiting. I SO wish we had an outlet closer.

Go ahead and do the Trolley. My sister in law had one and it was so much fun. The pictures are really cute too.

Oh, do the trolley, I think you and your wedding party will have a blast! And don't forget to have lot's of Champagne on ice or whatever your fav is:)

J.Crew rarely sends me shipping n e-mails anymore, but I always get my stuff! Makes me a little worried each time though...

Love the dress! :)

Two bottles of Champagne are on them plus "cups", cooler is ok just no glass. I think we'll go for it, I love the idea of that time with our wedding party!

It's been hit or miss with JCRew and shipping emails for me. LOVE that navy dress and that picture of you, so, so classic and beautiful!
