    By the way not sure you may know this but to post pictures here on the forum there is a great site called Click the image to open in full size.

    I agree I think things are really still a bit crazy. They are probably starting to get the brides sorted out whose weddings are coming up. However how long can the excuse of being hectic keep coming up? I would def give them a call the way ChicagoBride did and take it from there. At least than you can get the link to that website and upload all your stuff.
    Thanks! I was wondering how to post those pics!

      I really liked them. Plus they were really efficent and I was able to get my video and album very quickly.
      I think the most important thing about the welcome bags that I found out was to include a program of what will be going on that weekend (even if its just about the actual ceremony and who people are in the wedding).
      We also went to the local MEGA store (kinda like a Target) and found lots of snacks and goodies to put into the bags. I bought some stuff at home and brought it with me (chapstick, bandaids, tums etc..) but the fun stuff we found at MEGA - my guests LOVED the candy and cookies we put in. Everyone used it. We also bought juice boxes that people could use as mixers for drinks to make in the room.
      My husbands grandmother made all my OOT bags for me - really nice large fabric bags lined with large handles that people could swing over their shoulders and use as beach bags. All the girls used theirs all week, even though they brought beach bags to use! :)
      hope that helps!
      I have pics but I am at work, and don't have access to them right now.
      Good luck!

      Thanks so much for the info! I feel a lot better now about using their hair/makeup pros and photograher. Great ideas for the gift bags too!

        Thanks Shannon! All helpful info :) Quick question though, of all the maps out there I've seen, I've been trying to figure out how far the MEGA store is from the Royal and a general idea of how to get there. Can you give us an idea and maybe some quick directions?

          The Mega is walking distance. I think it was closer than Walmart. The people at the hotel will give you a map and show you. But it was an easy walk.
          IT was SOO much nicer than Walmart. Cheaper too! Walmart was dirty.
          But the Mega is a full grocery store too. I got tons of stuff there, but I did find that hardly any of the workers there spoke English, so asking for hand sanitizer (it was during the swine flu) was impossible. I knew some spanish but not enough!! My Husband bought lots of different kinds of hot sauce there and gave some to his groomsman - they loved it!
          **Shannon** 40 people BOOKED! (but only 23 made it b/c of the Swine flu Pandemic )

            I really like the PDC but I'm worried about how crowded it is and having "stragglers" in the background of my ceremony photos. Is it really as bad as it looks in some of the photos?

              Check out the slideshow in my siggy, there are a few pictures of the ceremony. If you want to see more pictures, click on the "see more photos" at the end of the slideshow.

                Thanks so much for that info Shannon! I know where I'll be visiting those few pre-wedding days!

                Past brides- how long was the song you walked down the aisle to? I've found a few but I'm afraid of the length of the aisle and I don't want to run out of music on my way down.

                  OOh hot sauce is a great idea!

                  Please don't let that affect your decision if you really like it, especially with the wonders of photoshop. I know a lot of photographers will do this for you, but if not, you can always find a friend (or do it yourself) :-). P.S there is this free one called Fx Photo and it's amazing....
