    We are meeting Karla at 10 am on Monday.

    DJ Bob has a website Wedding DJ and there is an email link through that. He also replies under a different email address boradem@aim.com so you could always contact him through that one as well. I have to admit that I was panicking a bit over the past 2 weeks because I had emailed him and didn't hear anything back from him (and usually he's really good about replying). It turns out that he is on holidays right now and just wrote me back today. He said that he would be back to work around September 16. So just in case he doesn't respond right away...that would probably be way. BUT...(not to be a major bummer)...keep in mind that we were originally planning our wedding for October 16 and when I asked him about DJing this night he said he was already DJing for a wedding at the Palladium. Who knows...this could have changed...so it's worth a shot...but you might want to have a back up plan.
    Thanks for the info on the DJ, kinda crappy to hear that he's probably booked! But I'm not suprised since I left it so late, not a big deal :-)

    Can't wait to have that drink! Time is flying :-)

      Time is flying!! I can't believe it's just over a month away for the both of us...and coming up pretty quickly for Keira too!! I think most of the other GBP girls are in 2010. How is your planning coming along? Karla has been great with me...how about for you two?

                  I just ordered them from vistaprint and they haven't come in yet...so I don't have any pictures of completed programs...but here is my plan...

                  I'm doing program fans on raffia (?) fans. I've ordered rack cards from vistaprint. The background is the palm tree on the top right with fading water at the top...the rest is mainly white which is good because that's where I did all the text in blue.

                  At the top...I have our names and the date underneath. I also have Mayan Riviera, Mexico (in small text) on the roots of the palm tree off to the side.

                  Next (centered)...I have "Ceremony" and in it's order (cross your fingers for me on this one because who knows if it will go this way?!)

                  Processional ~ Somewhere Over the Rainbow
                  Bride's Processional ~ Canon in D
                  Greeting & Opening Prayer
                  Blessing
                  Marriage Vows
                  Exchange of Wedding Rings
                  Exchange of Family Rings (specific to us...with our 3 kids)
                  Signing of Marriage Certificate ~ This Ring
                  Declaration of Marriage
                  Recessional ~ I'm Yours

                  And after this...I have "Bridal Party" and their roles / names (centered)

                  This pretty much takes up the whole rack card...and then I will use adhesive strips (Walmart $5 for pack of 500) and I am just HOPING that they will make the rack cards stick to the raffia fans. If not, I think I have a night of glue-gunning ahead of me...LOL

                  Unfortunately I can't find a way to "copy" the image in vistaprint to paste it as a picture.

                  Hope this helps...please let me know if I can help you (or anyone else) out with anything :)

                    Oh dear I've been slacking on here this weekend. Things are coming along for me too. I'm nearly finished everything that can be done here. I've spent most my time this weekend putting the OOT bags together and cutting out envelope liners for my AHR invites.

                    Karla has been fantastic with me too. I can't wait to meet her and get all the rest of it planned out. I'm kind of clueless when it comes to decor and all that good stuff so I'm really excited to see the choices.

                    Are all your guests booked now, Emme and SwoCanadianBride?? That was a fiasco for me but finally we're all sorted out. :-)

                      We're all booked...and I think there are 44 of us all together (kids + adults). I am guessing that there will be about 5 more people joining us on some last minute seat sales...but I'm so happy and excited that our "core" family and friends will be there :)

                      I was also putting our OOT bags together this weekend...I'm SUPER EXCITED that bubba kegs finally went on sale at Canadian Tire this week. We love them for camping and we've taken them on our travels before...so we definitely wanted to put them in our bags. We've been saving our CT money for months (LOL) and checking the flyers every week...and finally...phew...cutting it pretty close!!
