    Oh man, I didn't even think of that! Well if anyone knows what's "kosher" I'd love to hear it because I'm doing some budgeting today!

      I'm not sure what "etiquette" is...I think there is a thread around here somewhere about it. I'd say it all depends on what she does for you. If you just meet with her once & then don't see her again until the wedding day - and briefly at that - than I say no (or very little anyway!). I'd love to hear other people's takes on it.

        your right there was a thread talking about tipping. I remember reading it and everyone pretty much was basing it on 'how good the WC was' there was a wide range $40-100. We are budgeting $50, hopefully she will wow us and we'll add a little more!

            Well girls, I started another thread on this but I had to share with you too. I'm starting to pack all of my wedding stuff, decorations, oot stuff etc. I'm screwed! I can not believe how much stuff I just pulled out of the closet and I'm waiting on my wedding party gifts to arrive still. I'm so screwed! Does one of you want to come to my wedding and bring all of my stuff? :)

            Oh, and while I was packing things I snapped off a nail on my ring finger hand!

              OH NO!! You have to be more careful!! I'm trying not to get any bruises or scratches on my body now before we go so I don't look like someone beat me in our wedding pics!! But the more I try not to get marks on me...the more I get!!! I bruise easily, plus we have a 9 mth old 80+ lb dog that just loves to play & crawl all over mommy!!! Not to mention while cooking xmas dinner last week I burned my arm on the oven...twice!!!
              About your luggage...is there anyone you can start asking to bring stuff for you?? I am doing up little bags for all my guests that I am going to see before we leave (and at the airport!) to take as carry on for me. I told them it will just be a small bag they can put in their existing carry on. That way I will not have to take it all & be inondated (sp?) with overweight charges....can you believe our airline charges $20 for every kg over?? That is ridiculous!!!

                Oh...I forgot to mention...
                I feel like I've been making some progress! FI FINALLY gave me some input into the music for our ceremony! Although he completely kiboshed (sp?) all but one of my recessional songs he did over a fantastic suggestion! Baby I love your way - but the Bob Marely version...YouTube - baby i love your way - bob marley. I LOVE IT!! And he said he actually liked our signing of the register song...We are man & wife...michelle featherstone - well, he said it was nice enough! Now we just have to figure out my entrance song - I want Alison Kraus's when you say nothing at all, but he doesn't really like it. I want something that he likes too, but by the time we finally got to this topic I had lost him - his interest in talking about it had faded!! Men!! hahaha I guess I will tackle that another day!!

                Oh...and I started my planning thread! I realized that I will never have time to sit down & complete this all at once on BDW so I started a word doc that I can copy & paste into a BDW thread!! I'm obviously leaving blanks for things that I don't have pics of yet like me at my final fitting and my hair trial, etc.

                I think I'm going to start packing either today or tomorrow...I have to clean out my spare room first. It is a Christmas wrapping disaster!!! lol

                  Hey Girls,

                  I have been a mad woman lately - our Cuba strategy party is next saturday and I have a million things to get done - I too have begun my planning thread... wow... that will be a big one...

                  Having said that - i have also posted a ton of my templates and DIY projects in the DIY forum... Check em out...

                  After the 10th - I will begin packing - Luckily Air Canada Vacations allows 2 checked pieces per person at 40lbs per piece - my FSIL has 5 children - whom are all permitted to take the max allocation of luggage. Thus I SHOULD be ok for packing. But will need to borrow suitcases.

                  The month of January is crazy busy too! I ahve 3 dental appt's (whitening and veneers) - one dr. appt - two hair appointments - multiple visits to the tanning beds - pedicure before we leave - and mani's - i get one every two weeks, and coincidentally - today at work I broke my nail on my ring finger too...

                  wow.. so much to do.... I am on a mission for photos for my hair trial on Monday... Phew.

                    I figured it out! I have the solution to all our problems!!!

                    If we stop coming to BDW. We would have time to do all the stuff we have to do.
                    Like that is ever going to happen. I am way too addicted. I have however started to procrastinate on all the wedding stuff I have to do. If my count down isn't enough motivation I need a swift kick in the butt.
