    Wow!

    I can’t believe it’s finally my time – I want to start by saying a HUGE Thank You to Tammy Wright for not only starting this forum but continuing to host it at mostly her expense and to all of you brides (and some grooms lol) for being so supportive, kind and generous with not only your ideas, templates and time but most of all your friendship.

    I really couldn’t have done this wedding like this without you!!!

                A couple of weeks after we sent out our Passport Invites, we got an unexpected phone call from Molokai Ranch that they were closing down effective immediately – after the shock wore off and we got all of our $ back – we had to re-plan everything. Sandra Evans (BDW Member: Sandra E.) stepped in and helped me create an update Newsletter for all of our guests…

                      That is it for now - I am missing some things like OOT Bag Contents, Groomsman gifts, Starfish Pin, Annoucements and Thank You Cards (both in production) b/c we shipped a bunch of boxes to Hawaii a couple of months ago without taking pictures but I will update this thread once I get back and get the pis.

                      The planning threads have always been my favorite - I LOVE seeing everyone's weddings come together and now doing my own there is such a sense of relief knowing that the DIY and project part is over and a sense of pride seeing it all come together and knowing all the hard work that went into these things - i sure hope all of our guests appreciate and like everything lol!

                      THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE BUT ESPECIALLY SARAH AND SANDRA - YOU ARE BOTH SO TALENTED AND SO KIND - HAVING YOUR WORK IN MY WEDDING REALLY MEANS A LOT TO ME!!! XOXO
