I've had that same thing. Sometimes I look at the pics and I love it, other times I hate it. Oh, and I have wedding dress nightmares - where the alterations lady royally f's it up.

Nope, we're giving them out at the resort. OUr guests are from all over so it's easier for us that way.

I leave 3 weeks from today. That just blows my mind. We've been engaged forever, and I've always had the "wedding is so far away" feeling. And I still do, only now the wedding isn't far away at all!!!

Thanks girls for the dress comments. I've been working on my welcome booklets for 2 days now and the end is in sight. I think i went a little overboard it's more of a book than a booklet. Think i'm gonna have to consolidate it a little bit better.

I have been feeling the same way Tara!

Danielle,
This is what we used for our welcome letter to the guests. We did a brochure from my favorite....you guessed it....Vistaprint.com

Here's the outside....

Click the image to open in full size.

The outside cover says welcome to the wedding, outside/back middle has a place where people can write down room numbers, and the other flap is a note from us thanking them for coming.


Here's the inside....

The inside flap has a map of where we are located, the middle section has the wedding day timeline, and the other flap has misc. info and tips on PV and things they should know.

We are going to put these in their OOT bags which will all be assembled when we get there.

I have a "pre-wedding information" letter that I've sent out in the mail this week and a "thank you for coming to Maui" letter that I'll include in the welcome bags in Maui. The welcome letter just says, "thank you for making the long trip to Maui to share this special time with us"

Here's a pic of the pre-wedding that I printed on vellum paper and cut down and pasted to lavender paper.

Well I am at work right now doing the night shift with my Mom. Hopefully I will have the internet up and running again later today!

 

I got the cake topper from ebay. It will look great on the cake if we end up having the beach reception since it won't start until 6:30-ish.

 

My Mom has started making my TTD dress, and it started off with the intent to make it look like my actual wedding dress, but now it is going to be totally different. I can't wait for it to be done.

 

Danielle - You look great in your dress. I am so glad to see pics of it. There were a few times that I have had similar thoughts, but then as soon as I try it on or start looking at other dresses, I remember why I love it so much.

 

I got our Hepatitis vaccines the other day, and I gave them to all of us. Yup, that's right....I even poked myself. My Mom is a nurse too and doesn't think she could poke herself. I was pretty impressed with myself, as it didn't hurt at all!!! LMAO!!!

 

Everyone has great welcome letters. I still have to finish our welcome books, but I am waiting for a few more pics, and making sure that there are no more surprise guests coming. I just found out that if my Aunt & Uncles trip to Mexico falls through, they are coming to the wedding.

Thanks for the compliments on the brochure! I have been told several times the past few weeks that I am very detail oriented. My MOH asked me yesterday after I told her I want us to "Wig-Out" for my Bach party; She was like, "Where do you come up with all of this stuff??" I told her - Oh my friends on BDW! We were on the phone and I swear, I could hear her shaking her head! LOL!

 

Okay - so I go tomorrow to pick up my dress. I am SO EXCITED!! It will be the first time I've had it on where it actually fits. I am going to try to get some pics with my old camera so FI doesn't see it. If all goes well, I'll be dropping the bag in the mail to Tara. elefant.gif

 

I plan on packing OOT bag stuff this weekend and dying my hair. FI and I went to the video store last night and I rented "Made of Honor" to get me a little in the mood! haha!

 

Erica - I could not give myself a shot! You are brave!

 

Jocelyn, I love the purple on your letter.

 

OKAY - I forgot to tell you, one of my BM's told me that she went to someone's house and they had this basket with towels in it and it had all of these starfish on it. She said they were white but had little rhinestones all over them! Of course I fell in love with the idea so now I think I am going to accessorize all of my baskets for my AHR with these lovely starfish that I can glue little rhinestone thingeys on. Doesn't that sound great??

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
