Did you ever figure out how to get clipart or whatever that looks like the white aisle graphics? You could add something like that to the top part that shows out of the pocket??

Good for you! I feel strangely fine also, although, I have quite a bit more to do. Maybe I should be worried but I just am not.

yeah lately i feel like i hardly have anything to do, and the few things that are left are being taken care by my FMIL and my FSIL. my BM (who is really my MOH, shes the one picking up all my sister's slack) is designing my shower invites and showed me a proof today, which i loved, and shes making them tomorrow, and then shipping them to me so i can have one of the shower hostesses address the envelopes and send them. i feel like its mostly smooth sailing right now! and i just got a call today from the dress shop, BOTH my civil ceremony dress and my big dress are here as of today!!! i have to make an appointment to go saturday to go try them on smile29.gif

the only big stuff i have left to do is BM gifts, OOT bags, and get some cute clothes for vacation! i got a lands end catalog in the mail and i am thinking about ordering a few coverups because theyre so cheap, and jose told me i should order a tote bag monogrammed "Mrs. H" haha i think id be too tempted to use it now!

I feel fine too... its really strange!!!

I got the cheap o frame from Jean M, I just noticed that target sells it.

Its not worth 12 bucks. You are better off finding a locket or tiny frame and ribbon.

 

Since I have nothing to do, I decided to make a guest book for my Pre Wedding Party. Im not really into scrapbooking but I found some really cute stickers.

Wow! I haven't checked this board in about a week and I feel more behind now than I did then - but I'm not exactly sure why?

Let's see here....my biggest stress was my guests.... After we sent our save the dates out, we heard that about 35-40 people were coming, but knowing our friends and family, we assumed it would actually be between 20-30 (which I am completely happy with this number of guests), with at least 4 of those guests being children under the age of 8. Well about 2 weeks ago - only 7 adults had booked (along with 2 children and 1 not-yet born infant!) so I was in a sort of panic mode whining to FI that we weren't going to have many guests and our ceremony would look "sad"... Since then 4 more adults have booked, 3 more told me they would be doing so by next week, and my sister/MOH (who has me the most worried), said her family will book their trip once they get their tax returns which they have already filed - so in all - I'm feeling much better!

So now that I have a better estimate on the number of guests - it gives me more work to do.

1) I e-mailed the hotel wedding coordinator yesterday with the guest count so she could tell me the shape, size, and number of tables they will use so I know what kind and how many centerpieces I will need.

2) We have finally decided that we will just take 2 iPod's for the reception (double up just in case!) so now we need to shop around for iPod speakers because I am not paying $130 per hour to rent something!

3) We went shopping for FIâ€s ring last night and he showed me exactly what style and size he wants so now I can shop around for that.

4) I can finally shop for OOT bags and stuff to put in them now that I know how many guests are coming (and Iâ€ve decided to give 1 per couple and each child a kidâ€s version).

There are still many other things to take care of – but Iâ€m certain it will all be done (what choice do I have)!

I canâ€t believe July is less than 3 months away now!!!! Iâ€m sure this thread will continue to grow and I canâ€t wait to read what you all have to post!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
