        Hi Ladies, I just wanted to check in quick. We had our bridal shower today and it was amazing! My aunt and cousin put the whole together. We had a huge palm tree shaped cake and the inside of the cake matched our wedding colors of pink and green, and it tasted awesome! They had light up palm trees on each table as the centerpiece with champagne glass filled with pink and green M&Ms and attached to the bottom were flip flop coasters! Mike's mom had ordered these almond flowers. The Italian tradition is to give 5 candy almonds at a wedding, so she insisted on getting them. Luckily one of the BDW girls found a poem for me to use so I had printed out tags with the poem saying what they represented and FMIL tied all of them on. We got a TON of gifts! We only got a couple duplicates so that was good, and we got some stuff we didn't register for. Most of the non-registry items were beach related things that went with our theme so that was cool. I passed out the BM swag bags and ring bearer and flower girl gifts. Everyone loved their gifts so that was good. I managed not to cry the whole day until I got home and noticed the notebook that they got to write the gifts down, everyone wrote little notes in it on the other pages. I cried at that, but luckily that was at home so no one saw me but Mike. Ha ha! I brought my camera, but didn't take one picture! I was too busy mingling, but my cousin took a bunch which she said she is putting on a CD for me so I won't have pics til I see here next weekend. I will post them then, unless someone else from the shower sends me some.

          Hey there Susan. Welcome to our thread!!! I am glad to hear that you had a great wedding. Won't be too long until it is everyones turn here.

          Michelle - Yourshower sounds like it was great!!! I am having my first shower next Sunday. It is the one that was supposed to be a Spa theme, but I'm not sure if that is still the plan. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

            ALL Of this sounds DIVINE! I am DYING to see pics! HOw awesome Michelle! Sound like a wonderful time! I am dying to see your centerpieces!

            Well - I did't have my dress fitting yesterday. I didn't have the right undergarments so I told her to give me some time. I was in a rush looking for the right thing to suck in my gut! LOL! She was fine with that.

            I DID - however - get to see the alterations done to my daughters dress and didn't have a camera with me, but her dress is BEAUTIFUL! My step mom added teal tulle to the entire hem of her dress. OMG it so rocks! It is full and reminds me of a 1950's dress. I absolutely love it!

            That's all the wedding stuff I did this weekend!

            Steph - we are exactly 2 months away! YIKES! Hope you are doing well! I know you have a tough week ahead of you. We're here for you if you need to talk!

              I think the invitations look good. The only thing I noticed was that the one on the left doesn't match up with the one on the right. The only thing I could figure out was the & sign with your names is up higher on the one side than the other. I tried clicking on it to fix it for you, but when I click on the names they disappear? I'm not sure why it wasn't working for me, but maybe if you lower the & sign they will be even. I don't think it makes a difference, but it might cause you less stress cutting them out.

                  OK ladies, I got some shower pics. It took awhile to download them from my email and upload to flickr so I don't really feel like uploading them again to photobucket. Here is the flickr link: Our Bridal Shower - a set on Flickr

                  There is a really stupid picture of me being a goof ball so just ignore that one. I meant to delete it.

                      Michelle - it looks like you had a great time at your shower. I love the cake and the cups of m&m's.
