    welcome to the august brides thread bridget! post some photos for us and let us know how else we can help!
    Thanks Maura! Hopefully I'll get around to posting a few pictures over the weekend after I get my "info packets" done. I definitely need some jewelry inspiration so I'll be sure to post a picture of my dress as well.

    For now I'll post a picture of our invitation. We had discussed just inviting a few close people by word of mouth (especially given the short amount of time between setting the date and the wedding) but my fiance was afraid of offending people so we did invites and sent them to immediate family...about 25 in all which wasn't too bad. The invites were either matted on blue or brown cardstock and then put in the contrasting envelopes. After I did the invitations and started looking at flowers I changed the colors to chocolate, bright pink and green and got rid of the blue...oops!

      Maura--I don't understand how you're being charged to have the flowers changed when you weren't the one who goofed up the order? I hope they turn out okay for you this time!

      And I got a chuckle out of the program story...sounds like something my sister would do!

      Um... huh? We seriously have good FSIL stories.

      So, I'm looking at what's left on my to do list:

      Purchase bags and filler for OOT bags
      Print transfers for OOT bags
      Design and print hang tags for ceremony fans (ala Tami's)
      Wrap handles of fans and attach hang tags
      Work with Maura to design announcements
      Buy FI's shoes and shirt
      Have a makeup session at Mac (or wherever)
      Purchase our wedding bands
      Buy a guest book
      Arrange transfers to/from the hotel for us and guests
      Send out pre-travel packs to guests
      Have legal ceremony
      Make up seating charts
      Make an appointment for my final hair cut & color
      Design and print paper stuff - escort cards, menus, welcome letter

      And that's about it! Woohoo!

      Two months and four days!!!

      Happily married since 2008

          I like the peach. I like how it gets a little pink on the tip and I think it looks more like the picture of what you originally wanted.

          haha guys.... i actually hated the apricot to begin with, that was the original color she gave me. the bright orange of it just looks too harsh against my ivory dress with beads, lace and pickups. the peach color looks way too streaky because she's retinting flowers that are already apricot color so the pink doesnt look right on the peach ones. i ended up telling her to do the coral/apricot so we'll see what happens....
