    hey everyone.

    us july brides are about 4 months out. what are you currently working on?

    right now my biggest concern is getting the invites out. my original goal was march 1 but now i want them out by saturday. mostly everything is cut out but i still need to assemble. bought my postage today and luckily my rsvp date is before the postage change.

    here's a glimpse.

          did you send invites yet? you have time... i just wanted them out the door. they're more of a reminder really.

              3.If I have only 2 guest then I am covered with their OOT bags if not I need to start ordering the monogramed bags by april. I am hoping that someone from my side of the family comes. aww i hope someone from your family comes. that must be a little tough.

              4. Considering doing BD photos (back to number 1) i was flipflopping on this for the longest time. i finally decided not to do it. instead i bought fi a really nice citizens dive watch and a monogrammed leather travel organizer. i went for the practical. fi has never even heard of bd pics so he doesn't know he's missing out! :)

              7. Work on some wedding hair styles me too. my parents own a salon so you think i'd have the nicest hair ever. but i can't even get an appointment!!

                    hey, im an early august bride so im in the same boat with you gals, but FYI if you want to avoid problems with the postage rate change, buy some forever stamps NOW, and put those on your RSVP cards for people to send back, that way you'll save on the rate change!

                    also, theres always the option to do your RSVP online like we are. we are including an RSVP enclosure with the invite, just not asking them to send anything back -- but to visit our website and rsvp there instead :)

                    FYI, the rate change occurs May 12
