    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!!!

      ok just went thru my wedding planner, and i think this is all i have left to do:
      -call table linen place and arrange rental (2 wks prior)
      -call chair cover place and arrange pickup/dropoff
      -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!

      looks like a lot of things when it's all written down, but it's really not that bad :) so excited i'm almost there!

          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.
