    Hi ladies,

    I've been following this thread for some time, and just don't get a chance to post!

    tvt: your welcome books are amazing! good job on making them - they look really professional.

    amyrak: I have to comment because I looked at those exact same ones on Etsy! I even saved them as a favourite item so that I can go back and consider them as my earrings for our wedding. Weird! You obviously have good taste.

    It is so hard to believe our time has come so quickly...

          I am really bored at work today. We have training webinars today-Wednesday. Ugh! So I started thinking of the wedding stuff I have left to do.

          This is what I have for my OOT bags already:
          Suduku book
          Bath and Body Works travel size lotion
          Chap-stick
          Immodium & Advil packets (a couple packets of each per bag)
          Playing Cards
          First Aid Kit
          Color changing cups (The same ones Tara got, but mine aren't personalized. I split the order with some other BDW girls so it just has a palm tree and starfish logo and says Riviera Maya, Mexico on the bottom)
          I got sand toys and swim goggles to put in the bags for rooms with kids

          I plan on getting snacks, bottled water, post cards and maybe some brochures or other Mexico related items when we get to Mexico. Do you think there is anything else I need to get? I was going to get travel sized sunscreen, but Mike said peopel will bring their own. Then I thought maybe travel candles, but I haven't seen any and then I would need to get matches too.

          Do you think what I have is enough, or do you have other items that I don't have that you can share to give me some ideas?

          I created my dinner menus and table numbers yesterday. I took pics, but didn't upload them off my camera. I bought these table tents from Papersource. I had some cardstock left over in green and off-white from our STDs. I printed the menus and numbers on the off-white and cut them down. I cut the green cardstock to the same size as the table tent and put the menus and numbers on top of that. They came out really cute. We only have 3 tables - a sweetheart table for Mike and I and two rectangular tables. I started with two round, and one rectangular table for family, but decided it looked better with two rectangle tables. I wanted to use a palm tree and starfish clip art for the table "numbers", but I couldn't figure out how to find the clip art once I downloaded it. I went the uno, dos, tres route instead. I still have more programs to cut and assemble, but I should hopefully finish those throughout this week. I need to do our welcome letter, list of guests, and our photo list to give to the photographer. I haven't decided yet if I want to put ribbon on the blumeboxes. I took pics of both ways so once I can post I will ask you to help me decide if you all don't mind! I think that is all I have left to do aside from packing. It is crazy how close we all are! I will be one month exactly tomorrow. Yay!

            Hello ladies,

            I found this forum about a month ago. It's taken me two weeks to read this whole thread, but it was worth every second. I've learned more from this forum in 6 hours than I have from 6 months of surfing the internet this past year.

            Thank you for sharing all of your beautiful choices for your upcoming nuptuals. I've especially loved all the lists.

            I have 32 days to go and I'm still looking for a veil online.

            Wish me luck.

                Congrats Chika! I feel the same way, so much to read that by time I am through I am too tired to write. Everyone's ideas have been so great and amazing. I have barely put effort into my wedding, I am just not creative. You guys make me feel like a bum! I hope that my reception still looks great. I like to think that I am relying on the beach's natural beauty to decorate my wedding!

                  Hi Chiquita. I will arrive Maui on your wedding day. Congratulations, BTW. You only have one more month to go!

                  I'm getting married on Po'olenalena Beach or "Love Beach" and my reception will be at the Five Palms Restaurant on the patio.

Tara - PM me your address and I'll get my bag in the mail to you when I get my dress back on Saturday. Keep in mind the bag I'm sending you is very long, white and you can't see thru it. It does say "David's Bridal" on it.


                    Wow guys...we are next!!
                    OK, will do! Now that my PMs are working! And I can't believe we're next!

                    Do we have a list started of who goes when?



                    So I think I'm going a different jewelry direction. I LOVE my earrings but they aren't very "me" and I want to look totally "me" on the wedding day. So I might buy pearl stud earrings and this necklace that my mom found that I love. So classic and simple. And I <3 simple!
