March 2009 Brides
Posted 08 January 2009 - 03:14 PM
Yes I do have final (in my book) headcount. It took a lot of threats, cussing and other unladylike mannerism, but I did it!! I do have a watchlist of 3 guests that can go either way at the last minutes so I am still including them anyway. I would determine if they are "strong" yeses or no's and if they change their mind, then they are SOL. Folks know I am not a bridezilla but now its personal because no train or plane waits for this show. If some of the 8 are a coupl, do one bag for both of them and the ones that are strong yeses. If anyone else decides to show up give them like a favor or something in a small favor bag. That way you are not azz out if you are spending like $25 and up on your bags. Use the 20% rule!
Go ahead with your plans, as you can see I have less than 2 months now so in my mind, it is what it is for the guests. People should understand if they are iffy, they cannot expect you to bend over backward past a certain point!!!

Plus if there are any extra, I figure I can use them as a green alternative when I go grocery shopping

I take it you are ordering the grocery bags for your bags...are they being personalized? If so, where did you get them from? We're doing beach towels in ours, so I want to keep the actual bag prices down and thought this would be a great option.

We're tacking down the final details now. We have 14 guests booked and I can't imagine we'll end up with anymore. I'm in the final phase of deciding what we want to do for flowers and music. I still have to pick out shoes. More than what I thought I had to do, but nothing so stressful that I cannot make it work.
Good luck to everyone! We're winding down now!

I have all my stuff for the oot bags just have to put them together.
I still have to figure out what to do for hair and makeup.
I think I know what songs, but may change my mind on songs.

Well my invitations finally went out, a lot later than what I expected. It was just drama trying to get them from the store we purchased them from. We got them like 3 weeks after they were supposed to be ready. Then to top it off, my mother misspells my middle name. How can my mom forget how to spell the name SHE GAVE ME!! It's beyond me, but I doubt that anyone really knows how my middle name is spelled. It bothers me because i know!
