Saw these on the B&BW website today...they would be really cute in the OOT bags, they names are based on love.  My guess is that they are fore valentine's day.

I know @girlinthecity97 aren't they.  And they have a 20% off coupon right now.

    Is anyone else having trouble getting guests to committ? I cannot begin to put together my bags until I have a more accurate head count. Right now my numbers are ranging between 10 and 75. Argh :(

    @JenniferM - oh no! i'm planning for 2015 so i haven't crossed that bridge yet. could you send them a "gentle reminder" to register/book if they haven't already done so? i'm guessing the deadline has already come and gone.  it seems like others in similar situations sent emails.  for my sister's wedding, my mom made phone calls because unfortunately, we have relatives who assume you know they are coming.  I found the following discussions containing suggestions for how others have dealt with this issue - hope it helps:

          Thanks for the info. Yes the date has come and gone but they still have a month before payment is due in full. I'll look at the discussions you suggested for some ideas. Thanks!
