    That took me forever to find out what it meant and if it wasn't for Tammy B. I still wouldn't know. LOL.
    LOL I am SO clueless when it comes to those internet abbreviations! LOL is pretty much the extent of my knowledge!

    My resort gave us one of these and it was really helpful.

      I made a detailed list... and then actually DREW out a blueprint of where I wanted everything to go as well as attached a few pictures.

      I felt like an ass after I sent it off to her, but she actually really appreciated the specific instructions.

        I think I'll do it all on powerpoint, that way I can stick pics of what I want along w/ a description detailing it.

        maybe a word doc is good, that way you can attach the pics, and have sections per item. I did an initial word doc that I sent Maye, but its pretty much all going to change now because I decided on different colors etc...

          Alyssa- who cares if you look like a control freak? You don't have to be around this person for the rest of your life, so who cares if they think you are over the top! You WILL though remember all the details for the rest of your life, so ensure they are right. :)

              I made a Word document with subsections for each event (welcome dinner, reception, reheasal, ceremony) and included all details in a bullet format. Things that I had questions about were highlighted in red. I included pictures of things she needed to see. My WC was so cool, she responded by sending me the same sheet back with her answers in a different color. It worked great. I am such a control freak, but it works great for wedding planning.

                I created a word doc with some questions and pictures and whatever she wouldn't answer I would make it red and send it back to her. It seemed to work well.

                  you could put together a folder / binder with lists, photos, etc (sorry if already mentioned, did not read all responses)

                    great post alyssa. This is helpful. I don;t consider myself a Type A person (like that birthday thingy said I am this morning.)
                    BUT, when it comes to this I will probably be following ina few footsteps here by sending pictures of everything we have discussed prior about the wedding...
