some shots showing how much fun i was having
ok this one is not supposed to be of me... my grandma's dog was really mad that everyone was putting all their attention on me instead of her, so she kept running in front of my friend with the camera, standing on her hind legs and waving her front paws at the camera for attention. it was totally hilarious! in the photo, i'm not all smiley because of the gift i was opening, i was just dying laughing at the dog haha
gratuitous shot so you can see how skinny i am getting! (thank you alli and GSK!) hehe
me with a couple of my girlfriends
me with my family (with the fakest smile ever on my face since i was sitting next to my mom)

me with my aunt wendy - she has one of those fancy sewing machines that will embroider computer images... she's not able to travel to cabo for the wedding because she has a medical issue, so yesterday she told me she would make me one of those fancy embroidered tags with the bride & groom's name on it and the wedding date that my seamstress can sew into my dress so i can have a little piece of her with me on my wedding day. i am so excited about this
one of the best gifts we got (from my girlfriend from college, we didn't register for any of this but it was awesome!) gorgeous margarita glasses, a bottle of margarita mix, lime flavored rimming salt, and lime cutting boards --- AND tequila! haha
and we also got a sweet blender so we can make frozen margs now!
thought this was funny.... we got the knife set we registered for from........dun dun dun..... my mom. guess it fits since she's a backstabber LOL
tackiest gift from one of my mom's friends
was clearly not something she went out and bought...
and ok, this was not a shower gift, its a wedding gift we received earlier this past week from a relative of jose's and i'm totally in love with it, it's a wedgewood fine china tea set designed by barbara barry and was $$$$$$$$, so i had to show you guys this is now like one of my most prized possessions - i have ALWAYS wanted a fine china tea set since i was a little girl and now i have a really beautiful one!

Hi Maura! I have the same problem. It's a pain. My solution - I just created menu cards that are serving double duty as place cards, and then I have a stub on the bottom with people's names, table numbers and their meal choices which I'm going to perforate. People will just tear it off and hand it to the wait staff.
They fit 3 to a page - minimal fussing - three cuts and then the perforation. Let me know if you want the template and I'll e-mail it to you. Eventually I'll get a planning thread together and post it there, too.
Happily married since 2008
