I'm stumped.

              Hi Asia Jane!

               

              For our pig roast we are doing about a 60 to 70 lb. pig. My brother is a chef and he had one at his wedding and everyone loved it!

              We are thinking of having mini tortillas, a black bean and roasted corn salad, a cole slaw that can go on the tacos or as a side, and pico de gallo.

              For an appetizer we are thinking spicy prawns and something else that we havent decided on yet!:-) and of course chips and salsa.

               

              We will have beer and lots of red wine and a little bit of white. My FH thinks we need to have about a bottle of wine a person so we dont run out!! The Invitation is from 5-8 but will probably go later than that for some...

              We sent out informal evites and we have 50 confirmed so far. With the possibilty of 80ppl! We are praying for nice weather because it will  be in my Mothers back yard and house but hopefully it can mainly be in the backyard! which is beautiful.

               

              that is great you have lost 15 lbs that must feel good!! I have been working out like crazy this past month and can definitely see a difference in my legs  and my arms... but my abs aren't budging at all!! I still have 7 weeks so we are being crazy healthy!!

              My Fiance is doing a cleanse and I am doing high protein no sugar carbs or alcohol for 3 weeks!! hopefully I won't get too crabby!

               

              Btw I think your menu sounds great!! How many people?

                  Well, here's an update on the dress... I went for my first fitting on Saturday, only to find that they had accidentally ordered the wrong dress. Seriously. It was all zipped up in the garment bag, and one of the assistants had left me alone with it while she finished up her other appointment. So I unzip the bag (cue the fanfare), and notice that the color was not quite right... then that the fabric felt a little scratchier than I remembered... then I flipped the dress around, and it was totally the wrong dress (cue the sad trombone).

                   

                  I have to commend the dress shop though. It was an honest error, and they handled it so incredibly well. To pat myself on the back a little, I also handled it well. As long as I had my dress, in the correct size, and had it altered in time for the wedding without having to pay anything extra, I wasn't going to worry. They were so embarrassed that something like this happened, and I really can't blame them.

                   

                  Fast forward to Monday morning. The owner of the shop called me at 9am. It turns out that the only dress they had left in the warehouse just happened to be in the color and size that I had wanted! So, at least the story has a happy ending (hopefully!). I have my new first fitting scheduled for April 16th, so I'll let you know how it goes!

                   

                  As for the invitations, this is what they look like! http://www.minted.co...sku/MIN-J91-INV

                  They were absolutely perfect. I was able to find some great textured paper in complementary blue-greens to line our envelopes, and sprayed with a coconut-scented spray. I also ordered custom postage from Zazzle that looked like this: http://www.zazzle.co...51310809429944.

                      Hey there,

                      Did they email you different choices for decorations for the gazebo??

                      How do you pick your flowers? Do they send you choices?

                      You must be so excited!!!!!
