after laura and katfox got measured for their dresses we ran next door to Bridals by Roma(in Clifton) to show them my dress! I was standing there and they made made me feel so beautiful! We were talking about veil styles when i noticed this girl and her mom walk in.

In the middle of talking i cut off laura and katfox(sorry girls!!!!) and saw someone i havent seen in probably 20 years! “Nikia?!” and she said “yes!” I just ran into my best friend from grammar school!!! I couldnt stop screaming and hugging her!!! We reconnected through facebook and sent little messages but this was unbelievable!!!!! She’s getting married in august and showed us her dress too! Absoutely beautiful! What a small world huh? Or maybe it’s just small New Jersey! Either way it was a great day and surprise!

Bloomfield Steak & Seafood House

Potential candidate for the rehearsal dinner; Bloomfield Steak & Seafood House. Lex and I ate there on the 23rd, after picking out our limos. Food was really good, and didn’t seem too overly priced. Trying to figure out if they have specials for the group rating, different food for our veggie friends, etc.

The bridesmaid dresses are selected

Posted by Alexis on Thursday Feb 11, 2010

Picked.  Measured.  And done.  …mostly.

And now the girl version!!!!! After loving and picking one style , i learned it was discontinued…. a little panic followed.

I chose another that was once again similar only to learn that one was discontinued as well!!!!!! Much panic and nausea followed this time!

I went back to the website and tried to find the closest dresses to the styles i originally liked and found one. mom and i then drove up to the shop to make sure it was in stock and not a possiblity of being discontinued… AGAIN!

I was able to stick the bill levkoff line. The girls dresses are satin finish in euro champagne with a sable sash that loops through the back. Nikki’s maid of honor dress is the reverse, euro sable with a beaded euro champagne sash. We’re gonna cut the tea length dresses to the knee and get ready for dancing in the awesome july heat! I think i wanna get the girls brown or tan flip flops for comfy dancing!!!!

ONCE YOU ARE ON CAMPUS
Seton Hall University Map

Once you are on campus, just follow the arrows! The main gates will be open, and there will be a guard on duty. You can talk to the guard and tell them why you’re there, or do it the “Seton Hall Student” way, and just blow by while waving. Then, just follow the arrows in the picture above – you can park in the lots or the garage, whichever you prefer. If you have special parking needs, just ask the guard (not the student way!) and they’ll direct you. Then, follow the orange sidewalk paths to walk towards the Chapel, in the center of campus, off the green.
