    I still have to start on my welcome letters. I wanted to do something similiar as my info brochures, but those took me a while and I don't think I'll have time. I also have to finish adding some ribbon and starfish charms on a few more raffia fans and I think I'm done. I have my second dress fitting this Saturday, then my final on Sept 6th.

    My FMIL and her daughter just told me they haven't purchased their dresses yet, which worries me a little! Why would you wait until the last minute?!

    Also, I have to go to the DMV (which may take hours because of the strike going on in CA) because I need to change my address on my license so we can get legally married. We need to show proof that we live together (which we don't yet) in order to get a confinential marriage license. That will take a good chunk of my time

      Ahhh, I feel you! We went back and forth on our prenup discussion and I didn't even want to see him because I was so angry that he couldn't make up his mind on our prenup details! It was so stressful and so emotional (well, I was being emotional about it). At the end, I'm so happy we did it and everything we came into agreement with. TAKE YOUR SPA DAY!!

        I think for the most part I am done too.

        The only thing that I can think of is deciding if I am going to wear a necklace or not. I don't think that I am going to, but I haven't completely ruled it out yet.

        It's such a good feeling isn't it?!

          I pick up my dress tomorrow. The first one was ruined by the seamstress so I found another (which was little tight) but the new seamstress is a miracle worker. The dress fits perfect! I just have to get placecards made and FI's pants hemmed. Yesterday I decided that I hated my flowers and went out and bought new ones and made all new bouquets and bouts. I need to stop looking at the stuff and call it done! I did change the reception room to one with a small dance floor. I am having it at a restaurant and originally planned for only 25 people but now I have 32 confirmed. I figured I needed a larger room. I have officially lost the 20 lbs I was targeting! The waiting is killing me, I want to leave tomorrow! Good luck to all of you, I know your weddings will be beautiful and thanks to everyone that gave me good ideas.

              Can I ask how everyone is getting all of their things to your destination? I am flying Southwest and I know I can take two suitecases but I need one just for my shoes!

                We are taking four suitcases. Anything that won't fit in my stuff will go with my Mom.

                  We're taking 3 suitcases plus a few boxes as carry-on items. We have about 22 people flying in with us on the same flight, so you better believe I will be handing them some boxes!

                    That will be so fun to be on the same flight!

                      We have 15 people flying with us on the same flight too, so we are using some of their suitcases. So I think when all is said and done I will have a total of 6-7 suitcases =)
