Well my MOH is my sis so she deserves something nice and the diamond studs for the girls are a nice keepsake I thought. Am I nuts?

 

Celina, I will have to post my dress when I get home I dont have photobucket access at work, bastards! rant.gif

 

When are you guys sending out invites? I was thinking late July early August?

 

The bags I am wanting to get are described as such(cant post pics cuz of damn photobucket): "Fabulous diaper tote, beach bag, or all-around large tote. It's got a heavy duty plastic lined bottom, wipe-clean inside and big pockets for bottles, sunscreen, or miscellaneous.

 

Durable microfiber construction * 3 huge pockets on outside front of bag * inside zip pocket * double webbed handles with 10" drop * wipe clean inside * oval bottom with heavy duty plastic lining * 20" Wide x 14.5" Tall x 9" Deep "

 

I will need about 15 of them so not too many

No, you're not nuts! I know, I hate work sometimes too! I was thinking early august too - with a September 22nd rsvp date. (Sept 22nd is FI's b-day - he thought that would be a cool date to have them back - I know - he's a dork!) Plus, that will give me time to get my FI on board with my plan for an AHR ! hehe!

Your bags sound nice! Where are you getting them from?

I found the bags at Super-Size Mircofiber Tote Bag with Large Front Pockets #LT221-Black Polka Dot which is wholesale accessory market. Yeah I have my RSVPS for Sept 18.

 

Speaking of AHRS...what are you all doing? November is kinds of a tough month with holidays and all. We were thinking about waiting until Spring so we could BBQ and all, we arent doing anything formal at all. We have a great home with double decks and a finished basement for entertaining so not going to rent a banquet hall or anything.

those bags sound really nice steph, i think they are well worth $4.95 each, they sound big too. remember that your going to have to fill those big bags or stuff them with tissue paper hehe...

 

make sure you post a pic of your dress when you get home, your not allowed to eat dinner until ya post it.

 

i'm doing diy boarding pass invites which im regretting that decision now that i'm going to have to start working on them. i'm hoping to have them done by end of June and get them out in july. i don't think i'm going to do rsvps. all our guests are booked and i don't think anyone else is coming. so that'd be one less part for me to make.

those bags are really nice, definately worth the $5.

 

i think having a spring bbq would be really nice. your home sounds nice, double decks that's sweet! i wanted to have a little party at a house no big deal. we don't have the money for an ahr. but i just wanted to have friends and family over for appetizers and drinks so i could show the wedding pics and video and the people who went can trade vacation pics. that's kinda what my fsil did for her dw when she got home and it was really nice.

those bags are cute! Well - I didn't want to do anything big. The thing is, we have SO many connections for things, that it wouldn't be a big deal for most of it. Location would be the first thing - I was thinking we could do something at my dads church basement which is really nice and they have a kitchen and a separate entrance. We could do something for a couple of hours and a breakfast brunch would be enough. I was thinking of doing a brunch the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

If that doesn't work out, I was thinking of doing an open house all day on the same day. We have a small house and when we usually have stuff it's in the summer because we have a big yard and patio. I even thought of renting a tent and some heaters for our patio. The thing is, I want wedding stuff to be over by the end of November. Food isn't a problem. My FI is a chef and we have several friends who are caterers - so I'm not worried about that.

If it's at our house it would be kind of nice too because while we are off getting married we plan on having our kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms tiled and we may get new countertops too! We are registering with these guys I know who own a tile company. Our plan is to have them do the work while we are out. This brings another question...I'll start a thread on that one...

We are having an AHR on Dec 6th. I think our invite list is around 325 at this point. Yikes! It is expensive to have 2 big familes combine in marriage. I plan on wearing my dress again so that the people I don't know at my AHR will at least know I'm the bride.

Just a FYI Celina, the only beer at the Riu Vallarta to come in bottles is the stuff in the mini bar in the room. At all the bars it is draught and given to you in little plastic cups.
