wow friday was so busy!

i went to:

-nordstrom for all our wedding party converse! yay! that was a big thing to check off the list!

-ikea to buy my centerpiece vases and table number holders

-petsmart for cat litter (not wedding related)

-old navy for doug and GM wedding pants

-jo ann for ribbon for my bouquet

-michaels for sharpies for guest book & bride bling sticker for undies

-BB&B to exchange pillows from registry (wrong stuffing)

-target for mexico stuff (toiletries/etc)

 

spent all day saturday arranging planning pics, i ended up with about 180 that i need to narrow down or else everyone is in for a stinking LONG planning thread from me! i also uploaded them to shutterfly and made a free 8x8 photobook of all the planning pics, i thought it would be a fun keepsake for myself. i'll post links to all that when i do my planning thread.

Maura, I am not sure which tube dresses you are talking about from Target, but I bought 3 a few weeks ago and they are so comfy! Well, I haven't worn them yet, but they were comfy to try on! I hope you found some!

 

 

 

Abbie...you got a lot checked off! Good job!!!

-buy sand for our centerpieces

-check on rental of palm trees and margarita fountain

-buy and spray-paint the cardboard cupcake stands

-find some sort of containers for silverware/napkin rolls to go in

-buy doug and my cologne/perfume (we both ran out of our favorites)

-make programs!! still need to do these OMG

-get marriage license (didnt get around to it last week)

-buy alcohol! (last minute thing)

-flowers (buy them day of at costco and put together myself)

-print copies of ceremony for everyone involved to look over

-finish writing mexico ceremony (oops!)

-make sure all the converse fit everyone!

i'm going to be there for 10 days and i am bringing about 15 outfits, because some of the days, i know i will just veg at the pool so i can wear something super casual, and then at night i will need a dress to go out. or for the couple times we plan to take a day trip during the honeymoon week, i will need an extra outfit.
