    i'm missing all that stuff (and more) still as well, but oddly i'm not freaking out yet ... i probably should be! i finally ordered jewelry for my bridesmaids yesterday.

    oh marie, you are *definitely* an oddball but i don't think the fact that you've not done anything has anything to do with it--LMAO! congrats on losing so much weight that you need a new dress ... that rocks!

            Hey girls,

            I see so many of us doing hang tags for the doors or signs, ect. I was going to do it, then I decided not to, now I'm back on again for signs for everyone's doors. What do you girls think? I really can't make the decision!!

            So this Tuesday is my BD shoot! I'm so excited!! We have alot of stuff packed up already. My dress is home and I love it as much as the day I bought it. Wednesday we have my mom's fitting and my fitting for my AHR dress.

            The drama has slowed down it seems. We now have 1 big limo bus taking us all to the port for the cruise instead of 2. We managed to get my new MOH's dress. We didn't even have to get it rushed!

            I am kinda sad I'm not going to have the original plan bachelorette party, instead we're just going to go to a super nice dinner then hit a casino or 2. It will still be a ton of fun.

            I have all my clothes for the week of the cruise. All the wedding morning of shirts came in, they are super cute!! I went to Target, found a bathing suit cover up in a turquoise color for when I get my hair and makeup done.

            All the AHR stuff is done for the most part. The invites are out and RSVP's are coming in. The place card holders and candy bar favors are ordered and in. Just the seating chart and place cards need to be done for that. I'm tossing around the idea of doing something a little more for the centerpieces. Right now I have heart shaped vases with sand and colored mini shells in them. I'm thinking of getting some of the fish netting and putting it under the vases. Then maybe seeing about getting a bigger conk shell or 2. We also have votive candles around the centerpieces for everyone to have 1 to take with them.

(shes converting the back to a corset back from a zipper back, adding a bustle, hemming it [my dress is lace :S] and fixing the straps) what are your opinions on that price..? lol.. i guess i just dont know what the going rates are for alterations..

                  got some stuff done on friday with my mom. we did koozies (iron-on ... didn't turn out too well so i may not use them, or just pick out the best ones and give to bridal party only), added ribbon & fake orchids to raffia fans, made thank you tags for favors, and painted mini-maracas in my wedding colors. the only problem is now more people are coming than i originally thought, so i have to buy more stuff, which means nothing is totally finished, lol.

                  my flower girl came over to try on her dress and it fits her perfectly. we went shopping and bought her shoes today too. :)

                  fiance and i also got everything together for our apostille document requests, which will be dropped in the mail tomorrow morning (there was a miscommunication that made us think we didn't need these, which is the only reason we waited so long)!

                    stupid double posts ... why does it do that??

                    ok, edited again to say I'M stupid. it wasn't a double post this time ... i just saw my previous post as well and thought this one posted twice, lol. dumbass me.

                    i was responding to cattie about the door hangers ... i'm back and forth on it as well. if i do them i will do funny "do not disturb" signs saying something about them being hungover from partying too hard with the newlyweds, not anything that indicates their whereabouts, posing a security risk.

                      I can't believe May is so close already! I'm finally getting things together too.

                      Sent out my invitations last week and got my first RSVP already (from my parents. lol). Also got DIY menus, a "father of the bride" hat, and thank-you cards FREE from Vistaprint.

                      Went for my first fitting on Saturday (she had first pinned me in a few weeks ago) and the dress is a perfect fit! Actually I will need to watch what I eat and work out for the next 2 months so it stays that way.

                      FI has finally bought his groomsmen their shirts and ties, and just has to get his suit and his wedding band. My girls all have their dresses.

                      Found really nice (and cheap!) hair flower at Kohl's this weekend and also found cute starfish necklaces for the bridesmaids.

                      Now things are really starting to get exciting... Happy planning ladies-- we are getting to the home stretch!
