    So I think I found a STD! It's really hard for me! Anyone else have a hard time?

    This is a link:Signature White Textured Save the Date Cards - Simply Dazzling by Wedding Paper Divas

    Im leaning toward pink, maybe teal. Our colors are bright blue, fushia, and bright orange.

    Im hoping to send em soon. The wedding is April 9 2011. Im not sure about time lines for everything.

    One more general question: who had a legal ceremony and who had symbolic? I think we are leaning toward having our legal day here first. We probably would only tell the BM and MOH...Im worried some people might be mad or not get it if we aren't "really" getting married there. Anyone who did a symbolic : did you pick your own ceremony script? Did you do regular vows? Im hoping no one will know the difference!
    we had our legal wedding here first - about 3 weeks before we left. our parents and siblings came and we told no one (well i told my close colleagues) before. it dribbled out after, but no one was mad. originally we were only going to tell MOH and BM, but realized how upset our parents would be.

      We were thinking of doing this too, but I don't even know how to go about writing a ceremony script! Neither of us are religious, and all the weddings I've ever been to were in churches with readings from the bible (which neither of us want) so I have nothing to draw from! What is said during a non-religious ceremony? What kind of format? Any suggestions anyone?

          we asked for a non-denominational wedding - no god references, heaven stuff, etc. our minister found every way possible to say god without actually saying the word god. i wish my husband had uploaded our video - it's HILARIOUS! we had no clue what the woman was talking about and couldn't look at each other through the ceremony because we would have laughed. at one point, she told him to look at me.
          i don't think anyone has talked about having that kind of experience since, but if you want to avoid it altogether, either write your own or ask the WC for a copy of the script.

            i asked our wc for the officiants contact info and the officiant put together a script and sent it to me to review. I also looked at the "share your script" thread and that was helpful too. i am working on using the thread and the officiants script to create one that i want. i am so thankful for all those brides that shared their script.. great starting point.

                Hey ladies! I'm booked at Dreams PV for April 16, 2011 so I figured I would need to do some sort of planning now. When I talked with Samantha she said it was too soon and I should get back with her in August... doesn't that seem a little odd? I know they do tons of weddings but, my invites are out and people are starting to book and we haven't done anything except pick a place (gazebo, las palmas terrace) and time! I feel like I should be doing more. Should I go over her head and talk with Rebecca?

                    what else should you do? if you have the place and time, what do you need to plan with samantha that can't wait a month?

                      I agree that you should wait. They have a time line that they go by and with that much time they have to concentrate on the brides that are coming up sooner than that (which you will appriciate when that is you)

                      I would maybe start writing down everything that you want to go over with her and get it all ready so that you dont forget anything so that when it is time to really kick it into gear you will have everything you want to start on handy
