    I'm going to have them do everything. I'm sure I could go cheaper if I went to Sams and just ordered the labels, but with all the other crafts I have going on I really am just to lazy to do it. The site I'm using, does have both options though.

      Do you mind me asking how much it is for them to do it for you compared to DIY?

        It looks like $218 for 110 of them if they do everything.

        For the wrapper only its $119. I'm not sure how much the chocolate alone would be at Sams Club. But I'm sure its less then $100.

              OMG ! 2 months and 5 days ! I have not done anything wedding related in weeks ! Other than my legal wedding of course

              I need to contact my WC ! Did not hear from her since weeks ! I had a dream yesterday night, I was in a huge "wedding wonderland" of some sort, with a lot of chapels, beaches, gardens, etc. where you could just come and get married. I dreamt that, on the phone, I was told you could just show up, no resa needed. I wanted to use a specific chapel, and when I got there, I realized people were putting their name on a list ! When I asked if they were free the Saturday at 5pm, they said they had no spot until the Sunday 6 pm ! But, I said, everybody will be gone !!! I have people coming from France, from Singapore, from Switzerland, from UK, from the US, you have to do something ! and they were telling me that this huge, ugly church super-far-away was free, but I did not know how to get everybody there...

              ... and then I woke up :)

              It's a sign. I need to get back on it ! remaining :
              - pick the cake flavors (we're doing a cup-cake tower)
              - FI outfit - I picked up one "default" suit, buut FI wants "somthing unique". I told him he had until April 15, and if he had nothing he would get the "default suit" LOL. Still hesitating between those two for the "default" :Zoot Suit Store: Stacy Adams and Zoot Suit Store: Stacy Adams
              FI is a 42L, it makes it hard to find something that we both like AND is in his size.
              - GM outfits
              - ring bearer outfit
              - ring pillow (I think I'm doing a mini-sombrero)
              - programs
              - OOT bags (I have some ideas but nothing done AT ALL)
              - ceremony and vows
              - sitting chart (no exact sitting but I want to do tables at least)
              - music (for everything, we have no DJ) - this is FI's work really
              - rent everything for the wedding (need the exact number of guests... I have 29 positive RSVPs but only 15 bookings...)
              - dress fitting - the seamstress told me I could come 2 weeks before leaving that she could get everything done in 2 weeks ! perfect for my weight-loss situation
              - TTD dress fitting. Well, same ! I received it (a Davids Bridal sale at $99.99) and it's awesome !
              - ordered but not received : sand-frame and sand for sand ceremony. Flowergirl dress.

              That's a big list (( I'm freaking out !

                I am so happy to have stumbled on this thread...my wedding date is May 17 and it seems like it just crept up on me. This thread will hopefully get some fire under my butt! My to do list:

                -Apply for florida marriage license-plan is to get this done THIS week
                -pick out veil-I want to find one of those netted, caged veils
                -pick up wedding dress-it should be ready in the next two weeks
                -finalize wedding guests gift bags-I am doing separate gift bags for my cruise guest versus the guests who are coming only to attend the wedding. My cruise gift bags are complete. I am leaning towards doing gable box gifts for the wedding guests with: bottle of water, small alcohol shooter, snacks, and a shot glass. not 100% sure on this though.
                -reserve hotel room night before wedding, I am treating my wedding party to a suite.
                -plane tickets

                I am getting excited by the minute!!!!!!!!!!!

                  Just wanted to check in and say hi! I just finished my pre-wedding brochure, but other than that, I haven't done a thing. I need to get with it!

                    Mel- your brochures look great!
                    Ayita- I started a thread about wedding related dreams/nightmares a few weeks ago but there weren't many people that had tehm and i'm sure it's just buried. Yours was funny though.

                    * yesterday FI and I spent HOURS going over budget, finalizing menus and payment dates and DIY tasks that we will "split". It was crazy. We were both getting so stressed. We were also getting excited. I mean in the end we just laugh cause we really don't need any of it but we (I) want the details. :) He's on board though. He has agreed to help a lot more now since I have been having nervous breakdowns becuase of my thesis and this planning business.

                      How funny! I have a wedding nightmare once a week! It's weird though because I don't feel stressed at all! I guess my subconscious is freaking out more than I know.
