His ring (ordered from Tungsten Jewelry - Mens & Womens Tungsten Carbide Wedding Rings, Bands, Watches & Bracelets
They also do engraving - they send you the ring first to make sure it's the one you want ... then you send it back to them. Unfortunately, I couldn't decide what I want to have engraved in time to have it done before the wedding ...
The dress is the Semilla from Pronovias and I bought it at LuLu's in Dallas (they were AWESOME):
My dress for TTD Session the next day:
Daughter's Dress from Strausburg Children (great if you have kids that hate "itchy" - all their dresses are fully lined with super-soft cotton)
Son's Suit from Nordstrom's (they have FREE alterations and great brands like Joseph Aboud):

I love the way the menus turned out - but be WARNED they take a lot of work! I got the idea from another bride and she tried to warn me! It is craft wood that you stain, my neighbor took pity on me trying to cut them with a hand saw and came over with his jig saw. Then you burn the edges with a wood burner. That's what takes the longest. FI was a super-sport and did a lot of them! The paper was from paper source and has some natural fibers and flecks. I tore the edges with a deckle edge ruler. Finally, after much trauma with adhesives - I used YES paste - I found it was the only thing that really worked well with the wood. Oh - and we won't be doing place cards ...
Also on each table will be a candle trio - a small, medium, and large with a candle and filled with sand at the bottom. Here's the pic my WC sent, but she said they are a little bigger than this:
On the guest book table and the cake table I'm having these arrangements:
Here is the cocktail menu (something old, new, borrowed, blue ...)

We ordered Mexican Wedding cookies from Sweet Dreams - They'll go in these bags and we'll send them to guests before they leave so they'll have a "snack" on the way home:
Last, but not least - the programs. I had covers letterpressed when we ordered the invitations. They covers are 3.5 x 5. I did the accordion inside ala Martha Stewart - . Again with the adhesive problems - I finally liked Zig glue (it's for scrapbooking) AND the handiest tool ever is a bone folder ... it made the creases really sharp and was awesome for spreading out all the air bubbles. Seriously, I think it's may favorite craft tool now!
OK - Now I'm busy checking and re-checking the packing lists. The good news is I think we will be able to take everything in our allotted luggage.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for sharing all of your ideas and support! You girls have been such inspiration and I have loved the last few months of planning! I can't believe it is already here!
