    Welcome Back, Jeanne!!! I am soooo happy to read that everything went so well, and you looked GORGEOUS!! Your pictures were amazing, and your flowers... WOW!! I am starting to freak a little, considering I am just over 2 months away!!!!! I got the invitations out last week, and they look AWESOME!!! I will see if I can get some pics taken of them, and post them... Here's where I am and what I am having issues with:
    • need to decide on flowers (I LOVE Peonies, just don't think that can work on the beach in Mexico in June)
    • need to decide on which DJ to go with (Swank? The outside vendor, who's name is escaping me right now? ...which one is less expensive??)
    • need to decide on cake (Flavor and decor)
    • need to get b'maid's gifts (Thinking about spa wraps or robes)
    • need to get welcome dinner organized (Great idea about reserving a restaraunt... there's no extra cost, is there?!?)
    • need to get welcome basket ideas/ items (What are y'all doing??)

    Um... do you think I have enough to do!?! Should I be freaking out!?!?

    ....oh, but the BEST thing?? I picked up my dress yesterday!! Y'all, it's STILL as beautiful as it was six months ago when I bought it!! I AM SO EXCITED!! :)

    I have to say, this is the GREATEST website I have ever found... have NO IDEA how I found it, but I am so glad to know you girls! I promise to not be so MIA anymore!! :)

    Chat soon~
    Kim

      Jeanne - welcome home & congrats!!! Your pics are beautiful...can't wait for the read the full story!!!

      you girls have been so busy! woo-hoo! i still miss all the fun over here, but we finally decided to get married at Dreams Tulum so I've been busy getting everything all set on that front. Just finished the STDs (and then realized I had a minor typo...oops!) and our wedding website. Wanted to send out a HUGE thank you to Becks and Missy because I totally "borrowed" from your sites (which are SO much better than mine, but oh well).

      i'll check in again soon (especially since becks reminded me how great you PRC brides are!!!)

            I think I will be unable to convince FI to miss his grandparents 60th wedding anniversary bash for your wedding Becks - it's looking like the weekend of August 29th - labour day so we get the three days instead of two!

            Oh come on! Granparents celebrate 60th anniversaries every 60 years! I'm only getting married once!

            (that really is the most pathetic thing I think I've ever written)

            I know you won't be able to make it, but it would have been sooooo great! We'll have to plan a reunion tour next after we've all done our wedding things.

              It would have been sooo fun!

              On another note - wondering whether anyone has given any thought to any live music - mariachi, band etc. We were thinking something for the ceremony might be nice - although not sure I want to pay $750 for 45 minutes..

              Yeah. We're thinking about the jazz trio for the cocktail hour, but that's a mighty expensive 45 minutes.

              So, we're going to meet with Mannia when we're down there and see what he says. We may end up having him DJ the whole thing.
