          - gift ideas for parents and best man and BM

          does anyone have any ideas for the last one? we're all out of creativity at the moment with spending 2 hours trying to work out a seating plan...brain's dead!! HELP! lol[/QUOTE]

          My FI is getting his BM a piece of art (some japanese art that he collects). I hadn't even thought of getting parents a gift....are most people getting parents a gift? I guess I should....

              __________________
              We aren't getting our parents gifts. I think it's the norm to get them gifts, though. In the case of my mom, we're paying for her whole trip so that's her gift! And I'm with AmyKH, no one is paying a cent for our wedding but us, so I don't feel bad.

              For my MOH, my sister, we bought her a night at the resort so she could stay an extra day. She's been our main and almost only helper, so she deserves it. Other than FGs and RBs, she's the only one getting a gift. The BM has done absolutely nothing and has not been involved at all. He doesn't even reply to my emails and last I checked he didn't even have his shirt yet. So we're not getting him a gift. Can you tell I'm a big fan of the BM?? LOL.

                I'm made our BM & Matron of Honor custom Converse with their names on it. Surprisingly, they both LOVE Converse and I know they'll freak out.

                For my Maid of Honor, I found a vintage gold locket and got her mom to scan 2 old pictures of herself and her at a young age. She found pictures of them both at 17 and that's in the locket, she's totally gonna cry.

                I'm not buying my mom or FI's parents a gift. They didn't contribute a dime to the wedding and we actually just loaned them money recently so.... no. I'm not bitter, no :)

                  Will do! Fiance and I have been considering moving there. So hard to have a little one here with no family and demanding clients. FI is in the film industry and I do PR so def more work here but more and more seems to be happening in Austin. :) So, all that said, if we make the move after the wedding, I'll let you know.

                    I went to micheal's the other day and I was really sad that I didn't need to look at wedding things....
                    Enjoy it girls and try not to stress!!!!(easier said than done)

                    If anyone has questions please don't hesitate to ask!!!!!!

                      On a less stressed note, I'm all smiles and goosebumps today! I'm finally getting really, really excited!!! It helps that my sister (& MOH) has just told me that they're planning two bridal showers for me while we're in Mexico and she's working on a bachelorette during our AHR weekend.

                      The first bridal shower is a luncheon with all the women and the second is the night before the wedding and is a "Lingerie and sexy things" party with just us younger ladies!

                      And yes, it's true that my bachelorette won't happen until after I'm actually married, but that's okay with me. Many of my close friends have moved away and will be coming in for the AHR reception, so I'm okay with waiting. As long as I get to hang with my girls, I don't care when it happens!
                      This makes me SO SO SO happy! I am so glad everything is coming together and you will be married in 11 days!!! That's very sweet of your family to plan all that for you!!
