    Hi angruck, we are going through the same thing, our wedding is on the 16th and even though we gave people enough notice (informal STD last December and actual STD in Feb) we still heard some complaints. And I agree with you, some people will complain no matter what the circumstance is... and what FI and I have learned so far is that people who really want to be there to celebrate with us will find a way to make it there. And those are who we would want to be part of our special day anyway, not those who always find something to complain about. Hang in there!!! :)

      well ladies, I think I trump everyone. We are LEAVING on christmas day. So not only are we taking our guests away from their family on christmas but the prices are also the highest that week for the entire year. We chose that week b/c we have friends and relatives who are in school or are teachers so they cant just take time off whenever they want. And also b/c lots of people have that week off already so they wouldnt need to use vacation time. I think saving vacation time makes up for the high price our guests are paying. And to be honest we didnt have anyone complain! WE were shocked. They were all excited about spending christmas and new years in mexico. Adn those that decided they arent coming b/c its christmas are very few.

            I was going to do those too Jillian. I even was in contact wtih the lady and she was super sweet! But then I went with Smartypants instead b/c I ended up liking their ribbon and font/thread choices. They were only $21 each!

                13. Still working on AHR in Texas, but has to be booked by June 10
                14. Struggling with finding a photographer in Puerto Vallarta
                15. Sent WC at Dreams: dinner choices, cake, flowers, DJ, & cocktail music info
                16. I have my dress, veil, slip and tiara has been ordered from etsy and should be here today or tomorrow

                17. Have reception flip flops, but still need heels for ceremony. I want these orange Jimmy Choos but can't bring myself to buy them
                18. Compiled list for OOT bags
                19. Purchased pashminas for OOT bags through the order that Jacilynda put together. They shoulde be here next week
                20. Working this weekend on un-bridesmaid letter and gift. I wanted those Live, Love, Laugh bracelets but can't find a good deal on them

                25. Last on the list for this weekend is to work out and not be a slacker


                Now that I typed all this out, I feel a little better but still way behind most of the amazingly put together brides on this forum. Looking forward to hearing how everyone else is coming along!

                    It seems to have worked out well for you! I have given up caring at this point. My mom keeps bringing it up but I have decided to just ignore her :) I am not going to change what I wanted to please other people, its not all about them.
